I would like to spread the word about Jim Spitzer and his company, Inside Out. It is somewhat stressful to look for someone to complete home improvement based on advertisements. If you are like me, you want to hear about someone else's actual experience with a company. Jim Spitzer is an experienced, talented carpenter. We hired him to build a patio cover and were so pleased that we now have a long list of home improvement projects for him to do. Our patio cover turned out to be beautiful and extremely well built. Jim is very precise, knowledgeable, and caring about his work. He communicates about every aspect of the job, is very fair in his pricing, cleans up the job site each day, and is punctual and friendly. You absolutely cannot go wrong with Inside Out if you need building, painting or improvements on your home.

Elwood has excellent work ethics and skills. He replaced all of the flooring covering 3008 Sq ft. Our laundry room was transformed with beautiful Italian tile. The remainder of our home was replaced with waterproof plank flooring. The trim work was expertly completed. The privacy wall in the master bath is of exquisite workmanship. We also had 5 of the windows framed in curly maple. The clean up was completed on a daily basis and the work was done in a timely manner. We highly recommend the services for anyone seeking honest work with a fair and competitive cost. The company has photos of the completed work.

I have known Nick's work for many years. Some he has done for me, some for other people/projects. Nick is an excellent finish carpenter. His trim work is impeccable, same for custom cabinetry. There is no job too big or small. He has built everything from homes to handicap ramps to animal enclosures. He doesn't cut corners and won't use anything but materials that will last and function well. For me personally, Nick has hung cabinets and doors in my home, done interior and exterior painting, deck repair and built a large storage shed. He was always on time and delivered what he promised. I have been very pleased to see that Nick has branched out into some very creative pieces for pets. The craftsmanship on his "Cat Condo" is incredible. I hope the concept takes off. If you want a job done right the first time, Nick's your guy.

    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 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.

    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 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.

    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.
