Exterior Deck Refab & Stain/Paint I would prefer to keep these guys a secret - so that they're available whenever I need them - but I think the word is out because they're already pretty busy. So, in the interest of speaking well of people who deserve it . . . These guys are outstanding. I could talk about timeliness, professionalism, experience, etc, but what really sets these guys apart is they are, first and foremost, CRAFTSMEN. John looked at my 20 year old deck and new exactly what I did, and did not, need. I could tell that he had a vision for what my deck would look like when completed. He walked me through details of wood versus composite, stain versus other protective products, and color. He didn't push but he knew what I wanted and he directed me like a good parent might direct their teenager. I told him what I wanted and they got to work. Then I got to witness craftmanship. Just an attention to detail that gave me an overwhelming sense that I had picked the right guy, that I was going to end up with a deck that I would want to show off, and wouldn't need any significant maintenance for another 20 years. John and his brother are quick but they're also meticulous. It was a privilege to watch them work and I'm grateful for what they left behind. I would recommend them to my family.

Scott is a true craftsman. He did excellent work that exceeded my expectations. The project included cabinet trim (fillers, light rail, crown, etc...) and window trim. He took the time to really understand what l wanted so that he could provide a detailed quotation. He was professional, cleaned up after himself, and did exactly as he promised. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a quality carpenter.

On my complete gut and reconfiguration of our master bath, closet, laundry and full basement, Blatz Construction's carpenters, Ken and Nick, have done a great job and have been a pleasure to work with throughout the duration of the project. They have been able to build according to my vision and requirements with minimal guidance and non dimensioned plans. They handle my routine plan changes with no problems. They show up on time every day, and are willing to do whatever it takes to meet my requests and keep the job moving forward. They even took care of a couple of coincidental plumbing emergencies - one when I was having trouble with a leak, and another for my wife with a clogged and broken drain pipe for the kitchen sink while I was gone with the Army. I would recommend Blatz Construction to any of my friends or family!

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.
