Scott responded almost immediately to our request and came over the next day. He completely replaced the screens on our screened in porch and picked up another project for us while he was at the house. He definitely knows his stuff and did a GREAT job! He will be our first call for any future work at our home.


I have over 25 years of experience in designing and drafting. I have been employed by architectural firms, a general contractor and a lumber yard. I can provide plans, as well as 3D images, for review.

My work stands out simply from the fact that I always repair only what is necessary, and it only needs to be done once. Also, I am independent, so I pass no extra costs or fees onto the client from overhead. As a true Tradesman, the work I do will last for decades, and I always make sure to include the customer in the process involved, so they understand completely every step of the solution, which decreases skepticism, and respects the intellect of the client.

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.
