Jerome was great. He did a porch painting and repair project for me. He also installed a ceiling fan. He was prompt, communicative, professional, friendly. The project took forever because of the terrible weather. He was out there working any time there was a break in the weather that allowed it. He was not able to get my ceiling fan to work properly because of old wiring. He worked on it for many hours, really went the extra mile when other people would have given up. I ended up having to get an electrician because it's an old house.

Swansey Painting did a great job in staining our deck. We were going to use a transparent stain, and after consulting with Ron he recommended a solid stain as our deck is 11 years old and wasnt properly cared for by the previous owners. Our deck looks great and looks almost new after years of neglect . They pressure washed cleaned the deck and was finished with our deck in less than 3 days.

I was referred to Arthur Short by my daughter-in-law after her glowing reviews on the quality of workmanship in her master bathroom. I called and Arthur responded right away. I was interested in re-modeling our 20 year old master bathroom. Arthur suggested a floor plan for this space, including some options that we had not even considered before. The finished product was better than I ever imagined it! I'm certain that I now have the best master bath in the subdivision. I asked Arthur to treat my home and do the work as if it was his own house and he certainly accomplished that and more. I completely trust Arthur's judgment and the quality of his work. After this project, I immediately hired him to renovate my screen porch. Arthur almost completely re-built this sunroom because the previous contractor had made serious structural and electrical errors. Now the sunroom is a showplace. Arthur is extremely conscientious and settles for nothing less than doing the best job possible. He is ready to listen to you at any time and his approach is helpfulness and is not motivated by more money. Hire Arthur - you will be glad you did!

We initially hired Brookstone Construction Group to do the landscaping to our front yard. Little did we know at the time how impressed we would be with Raymond and Rob, that we'd hire them to complete other projects we had in mind. At the start, we had taken down 8 trees in our front yard. A mess was left behind with a ton of sawdust and a fairly large hump in our front yard where the low stumps still resided. We had the idea of having them level it out and have brand new sod laid. During the consultation, we realized from their education that our plans were not the most cost efficient as completing the job we intended would have been really expensive. They threw some ideas and suggestions at us and we shared some ideas of our own. What we came to was: - Build of a retaining wall. - Backfill with new topsoil. - 2 pallets of new bermuda sod laid. - Small, low maintenance plants planted in the area where the topsoil was laid to cover up the stumps. - Mulch and plants installed into flower beds in front of the house. The work was completed quickly and with a high amount of quality. We could not be more pleased with the result. It turned our front yard from an eyesore to a gem we are proud to call ours. We were extremely impressed with the result, they we consulted with Raymond and Rob on a deck replacement as our current deck was on it's last legs and was an extreme safety hazard. Again, we collaborated ideas and took their ideas and very well thought out suggestions and came up with a plan. Here's what we got as a result. - Removal of old shoddy deck. - Installation and build of a 25x12 SOLID wood deck. This deck is incredibly sturdy. - Addition of support beams to our existing screened porch. - Installation of plastic rainguards undernearth a section of the deck so I can use to store outdoor equipment without fear of it being wet. - Installation of a slide onto the deck for our kids. - Installation of decking boards to be used instead of lattice - Steel rebar to be used instead of pickets. It turned out to be better than I ever imagined. What we have now is a deck where my family and I can enjoy to our hearts' content. We have further projects we've hired Raymond and Rob for. We have a custom french door installation to go into the home office. We are also getting them to replace our gutters and add top of the line gutter guards. Raymond, Rob, and his crew are experts to anything home construction related. They probably have forgotten more than we will ever know. They also keep continuing their education to know what current trends are and go above and beyond code to ensure top quality results. Professionally, I believe this is where they stand out the most. Most other companies we've worked with do not offer their expertise and education. They will tell you what they think and will give well thought and compelling reasons why. They ask the right questions to garner thought and feedback all for the sole purpose of getting the customer what they're after at a fair price. When it comes to pricing on their work, they are not the most inexpensive nor the most expensive. However, I truly believe their pricing is properly fair. Everything is transparent. They don't throw in extra costs just to run up the tab. As the project evolves, there are certain things that cannot be accounted for upfront and will add some extra to the bottom line. They do handle this extremely professionally and with open and direct communication. We'll no doubt be contacting Brookstone Construction Group first with any additional projects we have in mind.

Charles did an outstanding job! He replaced rails on spindles on front porch that had rotted. He also replaced door and door jam for our son's bedroom and fixed broken spindle on staircase and repaired cracked window sill. We are so impressed with his craftmanship and will definitely be using him for future projects. He was punctual, fair pricing and went above and beyond our expectations!

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.
