Felipe did a great job painting my stairways! He came on time and got the job done earlier than I expected. He was very thorough and painted everything exactly how I wanted it. Would definitely hire him again!

I was in need of some exterior repairs to my home, including replacing siding on a chimney, replacing the facing on a bay window and some soffit/and exterior repairs above the front door. In addition to this work, we had the entire home pressure washed,, painted and the front porch and deck stained. The house looks fabulous! I know they offer interior work as well and will definitely be looking to them for future projects.

We had Michael and his team come out and replace some rotting wood in several spots around the outside of the house. He took our inspection report (we are selling our home), came out quickly, gave me an estimate right away, and delivered on all he promised. They replaced a porch railing above the entrance (and fixed the problem), replaced rotting sills, and replaced molding on dormers in the front of the house. They also painted window casings of windows that had to be replaced and did lots of touch ups. His whole team was great to work with and I would recommend him to anyone who needs maintenance/repair work done. He knew what to do to pass the inspection, how to save us money, and how to do the job right. Thank you Michael and Nick and the crew!

Michael did an Outstanding job rebuilding our front porch. It was a challenging layout to work with but he had no issues at all and even improved on our design. He was pleasant, professional & did everything we agreed on in the time frame he gave us and for a VERY reasonable price!! We will be using him for a few other projects we have as well. Our neighbors loved his work so much they asked for his info. I would recommend Michael for any construction project!!

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.
