Al was great. We originally only wanted to have a light outlet put in the ceiling of a room that did not have one. While Al was here, we decided to go ahead and do another project that we wanted to do and put LED spot lights on back porch. Al was more than willing to do the additional job while he was here. His work was neat and complete. We are very happy with the results.

I am extremely satisfied with the driveway that Mike and his crew constructed. He put a nice touch on the driveway by building a radius that tied into my front porch. It really looks great. The finish was done extremely well. I would absolutely recommend MF Concrete Services for any concrete needs.

I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS GENTLEMAN...I needed a new custom gate installed matching the existing porch design. Scott Magura responded immediately, sent me pictures of his completed projects, came out the next day to measure, sent me pictures of possible styles, offered suggestions and was so patient with my requests. Scott is very talented in so many ways. Even though he will not be installing a new gate,(because I have to order it custom designed from the factory) I would definitely hire him for anything else I need in the future, and would recommend him to all my family and friends.

I am so proud of the work Ryan and Mark did on my screened porch and my office door. Their work is meticulous and they did everything I asked exactly the way I wanted. I appreciate their listening to me and following through exactly as I requested. I would recommend them to anyone who needs absolutely anything done. I will be having them back again soon and appreciate your recommending them to me. Thank you so much. Debbie Wharton

Ray is the best! He put up 2 floodlights, a porch light & a ceiling fan. Everything looks & works great. I couldn't be happier. If you want a job done right, hire a Veteran.

Excellent customer service, excellent job screening our 10x40 back porch, and finished quickly, especially considering it was the holiday season. I'm very pleased.

Marc painted the Livingroom, dining room, hall and back porch. He also rebuilt a fence. Excellent job on everything. Marc was on time and courteous. He quotes jobs not hourly and is very reasonable. I would definitely use him again and refer him to anyone who needs a good honest handyman.

Michael has done several projects for me. I had my porch torn down and rebuilt, roof reshingled, and a section of stucco removed and reapplied. I was very happy with the work and would not hesitate to call Michael again.

My wife and I purchased a 1910 built house that needed an additional bathroom and porch converted into a laundry/mud room. Greg did a fantastic job meeting our requirements, holding his subs accountable and going above and beyond to help with other tasks outside the initial agreed job. I have actually contracted Greg for a commercial job next and look to use him on many future projects. He provides excellent work and a great work ethic.

Jerry put up with some miscommunication on my part, and got the job done! The wife loves the new screening on the back porch, and if Momma's Happy, We're All Happy! Jerry rescreened our back porch, removing 16yr old shredded screening, and replacing it with new, pet-restistant screen. He did a fantastic job, and at a "Are you kidding me?!?"-low price, too! We have a number of other projects around our new house (it was a rental) that we will be hiring Jerry to take care of for us!

Great job! Dave was here on the dot. He and his helper did a terrific job and were very careful and cleaned everything up. I am looking forward to the next job. FINALLY found someone I trust and does a great job. Already have a front porch job for them to do.

Mr. Smada has painted three rooms, cleaned entire home (3 bed, 2 bath), installed a ceiling fan, and pressure washed my really grungy back porch. His work is professional, and of excellent quality. He can apparently do almost anything. I will have him back for various odd jobs.

I had the owner Chase come clean my screen porch, front foyer and walkway. ...He didn't use any chemicals that would hurt my new landscaping we just had done..very professional and reasonable. .

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who is a carpenter and what do they do?

Carpenters are skilled craftsmen who build things out of wood. Depending on what the carpenter builds, they may be referred to by various names. A framer is a carpenter who puts up the framing on a house. A trim or finish carpenter installs the finishing touches of prefabricated or custom trim and detail work once a house has been built and the walls are up. A furniture maker or woodworker builds furniture — such as tables, beds and dressers — out of wood. A cabinetmaker is a carpenter who builds custom and semi-custom wood cabinets. If you’re having a home built or remodeled, your general contractor will either provide or subcontract the carpentry work for the framing, cabinets and trim. You can hire a carpenter directly to update the trim in your home, build you a piece of custom furniture, or repair or replace your wood cabinets.

Do carpenters build houses?

Carpenters are trained to work with wood. That means that any part of your home that is built of wood is very likely to involve a carpenter. Framing carpenters will put up the wood that makes up the bones of your home. If you’re having a wood floor installed, it may be done by a carpenter — although being a carpenter is not a requirement to install flooring. Trim, baseboards, wainscoting and any other detail work is typically installed by a finish carpenter. The wood boxes of custom cabinets will be built and installed by a carpenter.

Although all of these components in your new or remodeled home are built by carpenters who specialize in building things with wood, a general contractor typically oversees construction of the entire house. If the general contractor is also a carpenter skilled in all these areas, they may well construct your entire home. More often, the general contractor subcontracts out the various building stages to different individuals, including carpenters.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
