Reese was a life saver! He and his colleague showed up on time, at short notice too after our delivery had been delayed. He is a master craftsman in the assembling of Ikea! Hire Reese!

We had a last minute need for a carpenter and dupage home services really came through. Not only was their carpenter able to come out on a Saturday morning, but he did an excellent job as well. And to top it off, the work came in under quote so they even shaved $125 off the bill. I would recommend them for any home repair job you may have. Outstanding!

All work was completed on time and on budget. Very high quality work. Had absolutely no objection when I added on a few additional smaller projects as well. Had him repaint my kitchen, master bath, guest bath, guest bedroom and first floor power room. All work looks simply amazing! Would definitely hire him again in the future! Sourced through Thumbtack. For being my first experience using Thumbtack, I was definitely satisfied with its role in linking homeowners with contractors.

Tom and his team have done an amazing job on our master bathroom tile and vent install. It was a lot of tile work, and it was done extremely well and promptly. He and his team show up when they say, communicates well with us and offers a fair price. We are choosing to have him do more work for us.

Evan was hired to remove and replace a bathroom door in my master bedroom. He did a phenomenal job at removing the old door and installing the new door with lots of care. Evan was on time and he provided a reasonable quote for the work he completed. I am confident that I would hire him again if I ever have any other carpentry job at my house based on the service and personal care he was able to provide. Within the few minutes of meeting him you will know that you have hire the right person and I am confident that you will not find a more qualified person that him to complete the job.

I can't say enough good things about my experience working with Master Craft and Design. My husband and I moved into our home 3 years ago and have worked with our fair share of carpenters, and handy men. I'm not easy to please and none of them made me want to work with them again in the future. However, our experience with Eddie and his team has been the opposite. Eddie came to give us a quote and was patient and enthusiastic. He gave us an opportunity to tell him what we wanted, but he still offered details and direction towards ways to get creative. We loved that! He took our budget well into consideration and we hired him immediately. Once he started working, we were even further impressed. We worked with Eddie for about a month and the ENTIRE TIME he was on time, flexible, energetic, friendly, patient and approachable. He would check in with us constantly as the work progressed, and didn't get frustrated once if we needed something fixed or if he had to make another trip to home depot! He also threw in many little freebies along the way. Eddie and his crew were sweet and trustworthy, We have dogs and small children and they never made us feel that we were in their way or bothersome. The craftsmanship is outstanding. Our house was nice before but now it has that "wow factor". We kept adding ideas as the time went on and he was able to balance it all (along with other jobs and offers) and get it done in a timely manner. We received wainscoting through most of our main areas, including accent walls on our stairway, crown throughout the house and a complete fireplace demo and remodel with built in shelving and a new mantle. GORGEOUS, it's all so bold and classic. The house feels more cohesive now. I would be happy to show pictures of my home or offer more information about Master Craft in the future. They did an excellent job. Eddie is our go-to from here on out!

I hired Lyndell to install a shower surround kit in my master bathroom and ended up hiring him to do so much more! He was able to repair some pesky woodpecker damage on my chimney chase. He noticed some loose cedar siding and repaired that as well. The chimney looks great and is better than the original construction. He came in under budget and was very thorough with his work. Couldn't be happier. The shower kit and door kit installation went just a smoothly. Lyndell performed a very "clean demolition, made some structural repairs and installed the shower kit with a high level of craftsmanship and care for my home. The shower surround also came in under budget and looks (and works) great! I'm very pleased with the work he performed at my house. Side note: take the time to get to know Lyndell...he is capable of more than you think. His background is amazing and his work ethic is refreshing. I'm planning on hiring Lyndell for future projects at my new home.

Dan from National Furniture really knows what he is doing. He is a master carpenter with tons of experience, including wood floors. Dan refinished a tv chest for me and painted a bedroom nightstand. Honestly, the tv chest looks better than it did new, and Dan made the nightstand into a nice piece of furniture (he did not have much to work with). The price was very good, the service excellent, and the finished product great. Dan and his associate are very pleasant as well. The AFTER photos don't really do the piece justice.

Last winter, the snow really took a toll on my roof and subsequently, my living room. Once I got the roof fixed, I needed the living room ceiling repaired and painted. I contacted Perfect Interiors and Ed (the owner) gave me a very reasonable quote to do the entire room. The workers arrived on time, repaired the water damage and painted the ceiling. Ed helped me pick out the perfect wall color as well as an accent color for one wall. I can hardly believe it's the same room! Ed was so helpful I decided to have him remodel my master bathroom. I didn't know where to start but he assisted with choosing a vanity top, sink, fixtures, tile and paint colors. Once again, they did a wonderful job. Five stars!!

Jeff from Homan Remodleing came and completely remodeled my kitchen and master bathroom. He helped plan and design in the beginning as my wife and I couldn’t figure out what we wanted. Jeff stuck to his original estimate and went above and beyond fixing things that were found behind the walls once demo was completed without tacking on any cost. The kitchen and bath came out better than I could have imagined. I would highly reccomend Jeff for any home improvement or remodeling job.

Doug and his crew renovated my master bathroom and bedroom. They were very involved in decision making and finding solutions to problems we encounted during the reno. Doug went far and beyond out of his way to get the job done, and done well. Great work ethic and great job.

Jates construction were extremely professional. They gave me a detail bid on my job in which nobody else did for me. There communication before, during and at completion was excellent. I never had to wait for a response to my questions. They introduced me to the guys that would be doing my job so i was aware of who was in my home. The work quality was great down to the detail. Marco made sure to walk with me a couple of times throughout the project so we could align our thoughts and make sure I was happy with the progress. I am thrilled with my kitchen backsplash and custom Master bathroom!!!!!!

Stonehenge contractors do terrific work for a very reasonable rate. Rory James & his team perform in a professional manner and their work is 1st class. They did a kitchen/breakfast room remodel for us that first involved the demo (removing all the old tile and cabinets), and then installed new tile, cabinets, dishwasher, some plumbing rework for a multiple sink design and then face brickwork installation behind our industrial kitchen stove. The job turned out better than we imagined and in less time than expected. Rory also installed a temporary kitchen counter-top and small sink so we have a functional kitchen until the granite counter-tops come in a few weeks. At that time Rory will come back to hook up the permanent sinks and install the back-splash tile. We will definitely use Stonehenge again when we remodel the master bathroom and also recommend them to anyone that is doing any type of home remodel/improvement project. John & Bonnie C.

We had Pat remodel our front porch, and later our master bedroom. He did excellent work on both occasions. What we also greatly appreciated was his constructive ideas, that made the final results even better. Thank you Pat.

I hired E Reiner Construction first for a complete gutting and remodel to our rec room in the basement. They did a quick destruction and removal of all of the old panels and drywall. The job was affordable and exactly as contracted. Our new family room looks awesome! Not only do they do big jobs like the remodel, but I hired them again to replace a broken shower head in the master bathroom, paint my child's bedroom and bathroom and build a huge sandbox in the back yard. Before painting the rooms, Jake repaired the drywall damage from dings and small holes from everyday kid life. Looks great! The kids are loving the big sandbox!

    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.
