Asia E. says, "I have a nice screened in patio thanks to Brian and his team. Overall i am satisfied with the work that was done. They were able to get the job of rebuilding my deck and screening it in done in 2 1/2 days. I was quoted for a deck renovation however when they began demolition i was advised that the entire deck would need to be taken down to ensure the integrity of the new construction. This cost an extra 2k that i hadn’t plan for but in the end i was satisfied with the full demo results. My only con was that we discussed having metal spindles instead of wood ones for the deck finish. I wasn’t home during that phase of the project so i was sadly disappointed when i saw it was all wood and in speaking to Brian he told me that the price for the metal was not quoted during the estimate which seemed to have been a miscommunication as we talked about it"See more

Sara W. says, "WOW! Look no further than Georgia Cabinet Co for your renovation projects! We contacted 4 contractors and received bids for our kitchen renovation and Umar’s crew were professional, consultative, no BS, and gave us an unheard of timeline (under 2 weeks!). Umar left and simply told us to check out his reviews. All the reviews are true! He’s amazing, his crew is top notch, all easy going, on time, professional, flexible, friendly, accommodating and deliver high quality work. Umar, day in, day out, responded quickly with all our questions, adjusted his crew if needed and made everything happen. All our friends had said, no way will you be done in under 2 weeks! From prep day to delivery day it was 13 days!!! We will definitely be using Georgia Cabinet Co for my next home renovation project! They were the real thing! P.S. they protect your home, keep it clean, and clean everything up at end. I love my new kitchen! Look no further, call Kristina NOW!"See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to have kitchen cabinets installed?

In any kitchen, the cabinets are the main focus, so you want to make sure new or replacement cabinets are installed correctly. A professional carpenter can properly, securely mount new cabinets to the wall; the national average cost for this service is $7,725, although the cost varies widely depending on the type of cabinets, their material and their size, and the accessories you add. A typical fee is $70 per linear foot to remove existing cabinets and assemble and install new ones; the cost is less if you do the demolition and removal yourself. Stock cabinets are the least expensive to have installed, ranging from $75 to $400 each; semi-custom cabinets range from $150 to $900 each; and custom cabinets cost from $500 to $1,400 each. Wood cabinets are more expensive than those made from plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and finished with a laminate. Wood cabinets range in cost from $80 to $160 per linear foot. Laminate-finished cabinets cost $35 to $75 per linear foot, on average.

How much is custom cabinetry?

Custom cabinets can be built for any room, including bedroom closets and built-in armoires. Measured carefully and built precisely, custom cabinetry can increase storage and beautify any room. The national average for building custom cabinets ranges from $500 to $1,200 per linear foot. The cost is highly variable because there are so many styles, colors, glazes and other options. In general, the linear footage of the cabinets, the materials used to build them, and the cost of the labor will determine the cost. Solid wood costs more than plywood and wood veneer, and costs vary among different types of wood; maple and cherry cabinets are more expensive than pine. Glass-front cabinets can cost more, as can decorative hinges, handles and door pulls, which can cost $2-$45 each; choose carefully to stay within your budget and pull off the exact look you’re going for. Some carpenters also charge for installation, on average $100 per cabinet box. Additional molding and trim, such as crown molding at the ceiling, cost an average of $70 per 8-foot section, and adding finished ends to exposed cabinets averages $100-$200.

Do you tip cabinet installers?

In general, home service providers such as electricians, plumbers and contractors are professionals who don’t expect tips. They expect to do a job for you for the specific price they quoted. Of course, they may appreciate a tip for a job particularly well done or for which they’ve gone beyond what’s normally expected, such as completing the project early or under budget. Even better than a tip, it’s always appropriate to leave a positive review online after a good experience.

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.

How do you find a good carpenter?

To find a good carpenter near you, do the following:

  • Use Thumbtack to find a list of carpenters in your area.
  • Filter the list by selecting a specific carpentry service, such as general carpentry or cabinetry. 
  • Identify carpenters who have high ratings.
  • View the carpenters’ profiles and learn more about their specialties. 
  • Read their customer reviews and look at photos of their past work.

After you get a good sense of their quality of work, make sure the carpenter has the necessary credentials in your state. Then, request several cost estimates for your project(s).

What does a finish carpenter charge per hour?

On average, finish carpenters charge $60 per hour. However, this hourly rate will vary depending on where you live, the scope of the project and other factors. For a more accurate estimate, ask for price quotes from at least three finish carpenters in your area.

Reviews for College Park carpenters
Thumbtack Customer
Kelley Hawley is very professional, kind, patient, and helpful....The only problem that we encountered with using KMH Designs was with the carpenter. We had to have him come back to do "clean up" work and a couple of problems we had to end up fixing ourselves to make sure we got the end result we wanted. Kelly was very understanding and accommodating during this process. Her professionalism is topnotch!

I had the pleasure of creating a custom design with Mike at Showroom Finish Carpentry. I wanted a unique media console and used a few photos I saw online to create the unit. It was a bit longer processed than promised, but I am 100% happy with the wait. I had never worked with a carpenter to create custom furniture and I was very pleased. The craftsmanship is impeccable. I highly recommend working with Mike and look forward to working together on future projects.
