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.

Earl was very responsive. I used thumbtack Friday night and Monday he was here as I told him how urgent it was. My oven install was fixed after Sears did it improperly. My wall oven is now installed correctly on a wood cradle. Earl was a true professional.

Matt and his team were excellent! Matt was incredibly responsive and helped me finish these key renovations projects when my contractor got too busy. They work very hard and knocked the projects out fast. My projects included flooring, drywall, new closets, electrical, and even outside tuck-pointing and pavers. Matt's multi-facet team had no issue knocking out all of the diverse projects.. They always cleaned up after themselves and gave great attention to detail. I highly recommend Matt and his team.

I can not say enough positive things about Dan and the work that he does! I recently started working from home and my $19.99 target desk just wasn't doing it for me anymore. I began thinking about how I wanted my office to look and reflect me as a professional and I thought, I need a custom lady boss desk. Dan to the rescue! Together we came up with the dimensions, stain and design of the MOST amazing desk ever. Dan was helpful in educating me on what type of wood would be best to use and took the time to truly understand what I was looking for. The end result is something that I sit at hours on end not because I am working, but because it's AMAZING! Thank you Thank you!

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.
