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!

Andy and the team were flawless in their execution. I threw them a couple of curveballs with regard to mounting a speaker and also asked they tighten up some areas of the existing cabinetry (not under the contract). They handled it all with no exceptions. New cabinet fits perfectly and matches all of the other cabinets. I will b hiring Andy and VAC in the future as they really are craftsmen.

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!

Thomas was a amazing carpenter, and does a amazing job. He is a carpenter that does quality work and actually has pride in his work. He and his helped are excellent and if i could give more than 5 stars on here I would. Thomas and Jay were the best company I have delt with. They cleaned up after them selves, moved back all the furniture, but most important they did quality work. This guy is the real deal, anyone looking for a carpenter , call this guy. U won't regret it, I am a very picky guy as far as work, quality and really couldn't find anything to complain about. Amazing job. He installed 550 feet of crown molding, first floor 5 1/4 and second floor 4 1/4 , painted all trimming, chalked it and nail holes, and did some of the best work of a carpenter. We are also hiring him to build and install the mud room storage. If anyone wants to talk to me about his quality of work or this review, feel free 7738419230.

I worked with Zurek Construction on my kitchen remodel--Matthew and Wojciech--and they were outstanding! I have an old house with sloping floors and odd angles, and they were able to custom cut moldings and shelves to work with my unique space. They also worked with me to fit in cabinets that I had purchased myself, and to come up with a good, working design for the kitchen. They were punctual, hardworking and affordable, and are just great carpenters! I am grateful for their great work and will hire them again!

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.

Matt contacted us immediately with a quote. He fit us on on short notice and his pricing was very fair. The request for a mesh screen to be added to custom cabinetry was turned down by other carpenters as they didn't want the risk of working with such cabinetry. Matt took on the job with no hesitation he did an exceptional job. We look forward with continuing to do business with him and CKM Carpentry. Thank you Matt!

On your five-star rating scale, if it were possible to give Michael Wood (Alchemy Construction) a seven or eight star rating, we would because we are so pleased with the work he did for us in transforming our carpeted staircase to a beautiful wood staircase. It was really a pleasure working with Mike, starting with our request for a quote. He promptly responded and immediately showed an eagerness to do the project and a willingness to negotiate a reasonable price. We were most appreciative of the process he proposed which included staining and applying polyurethane layers to the treads and pre-priming the risers at his shop instead of our home. This enabled him to demolish the old and install the newly stained treads and painted risers one or two steps at a time so we could still use the staircase during construction. It didn’t take long for us to see that Mike is an incredibly skilled and knowledgeable carpenter who takes tremendous pride in his work. We are totally pleased with the completed stair remodel he did for us and we would highly recommend Mike Wood for any construction project.

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.
