Dan is a class act: a courteous, skilled craftsman and professional, who actually listens to his customers and partners with them in designing and installing quality cabinetry, tailored to whatever space you need. We couldn't have worked with a nicer, more skilled professional than Dan. Work with him, and you won't regret it. Hiring him to design and install built-ins for our kitchen and living room has been the best decision we've made while updating our townhouse. Dan reached out almost immediately after we found him on Thumbtack. He remained accessible and responsive throughout our entire engagement -- traits that set him apart from your average contractor. From our first meeting where he evaluated our space and needs, he discussed potential options and provided some great ideas on what would fit our spaces best. Our kitchen required an entire wall of built-in cabinets, drawers, and shelves, all of which Dan had great ideas for. Meanwhile, our living room required a smaller, but more complicated set of cabinets and shelves to fit an awkward space. Three months after our initial consultation, Dan arrived to install these custom cabinets and finished the job in just a day and a half, working at a speed I had never witnessed in previous builders with whom I've worked. Just a day a later, he was all finished. We now feel like our kitchen and living rooms are complete, and we have Dan to thank for helping us make our house feel more like home.

Gary was very helpful in researching the best way to repair and redo painted woodwork that had not been done properly by another contractor. The project itself was to repair and repaint our back porch. I would call on him to do other projects in the future.

Ritch is an excellent Handyman with Quality Work. He installed a toilet in February 2015 and made sure that the Wax Rings are installed properly. He is very responsive and makes sure that the work is completed with the highest quality possible. His rates are very reasonable.

Erik was just the person we needed to accomplish our goals from beginning to end. He has extensive background knowledge of stained glass, an engineer’s mind and careful attention to detail. We couldn't be happier with Erik's thorough rehabilitation and creative installation of our stained glass windows.

Abel Services built an amazing tree house for our family which we and everyone that sees it loves it. There was no plan besides what was in our head and they were able to achieve what we wanted and above and beyond what we could imagine. Beyond the work, an aspect which gets lost in business transactions like this, is mutual trust. To their testament we were able to build a great sense of trust which is vital in my opinion. Since the amazing tree house experience we have utilized Abel Services in many areas such as custom woodwork (bar), kitchen update, sump pump work, general maintenance, etc. The owner Don is a great man, a trustworthy man, and someone who takes pride in his work all the while doing excellent work. Recommended him to many family and friends, as they then did the same to people they know.

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.
