We hired Chano to paint the interior of our garage, and Chano also quoted on staining our wood deck. Chano was very professional, friendly and thorough during the quoting process and his team did excellent work. In fact, they were able to complete the job the same day Chano came out to quote. Highly recommend!

We hired Ron to install an additional set of stairs onto our deck to compliment the stairs we already had on the opposite side (going from one opening to two). He took his time measuring for accuracy, double checked his numbers, provided a bid that was fair and completed the job before the estimated schedule. Now our deck has 2 entrances creating a beautiful touch and ease of access to our new garden. Will hire again.

Initial contact was very prompt and cordial. Work was scheduled within 2 days per my request to clean my fireplace chimney. Work was done well. Additional work needed to be done on the heating portion of the flue ( liner ), chimney caps and hot water heater flue ( repair unsafe exhaust ) for safety and reliability. Robert Ledbetter coordinated another individual ( Thad Smith of Family Heating and Cooling) for the additional work. Both firms were timely and professional. Both explained what needed to be done and expressed best cost options. I was extremely satisfied and will use both firms again.

R&R power-washed our deck, and power-washed and sealed our paver stone patio, walkway and front stairs. Roberto was quite responsive and professional. For the most part, the work was excellent. Everything was very clean, and they repaired some bricks that had come loose. I was not home when they did the sealing, and was disappointed to see that they did not cover the bricks next to the house. Those bricks are covered with little shiny sealer splash marks that frustrate me every time I see them. For what they charged ($1600), I expected better.

My experience with property refresh was great! I hired them to clean the exterior of my house and the deck. They over satisfied my expectations! They knew what supplies to use on different material and the outcome was outstanding. I took a picture to remember it was before. Highly recommend them, they worth their charges.

Had deck sanded and stained. Jesus and his crew did a great job. They were very efficient and finished in 4 days, due to 1 rain day delay. The deck looks brand new, again. I would call him, again, in the future for other jobs for my house.

What a great job! We were lucky and were able to get everything done right away! They were quick, professional and did great work! We had to replace all the deck boards and railings on our deck and it was contracted and completely in under a week and it's beautiful! We are very pleased and will be hiring Hercules to do more work on our home in the near future!

Glenn did a great job building new stairs for our deck. Work wise I would give him 5 stars, he had some issues that impacted his timeliness that were genuine (car trouble) and could have communicated better but he was always responsive, stuck to the budget and completed the work within the 2 days he promised. I would certainly consider him again for this type of work.

Mike Williams is an excellent contractor! He did a beautiful job in our bathroom. He also built us a new deck! 😊. Mike is so talented and nice. He was the most reasonably priced carpenter. He is very personable and a very hard worker!! I highly recommend him!

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.
