Roberto and his team did a wonderful job of repairing our front porch which had some loose bricks that were becoming a danger to visitors. His work is excellent, his price reasonable, and his manner very friendly and professional. We expect to bring him back for other work at some point. He does painting, power-washing, and - of course - brick and stone repair.

Our front room entry door needed adjustment and Brandon did a great job assessing the situation and properly mounting the door. He worked very professionally and did a quality job. What's even better, when I told him that we had icicles and moisture in the entry room his winter, he checked the windows and ceiling and found the issue. He then sealed the cracks that had let the moisture in as an extra service, which I highly appreciated. I will definitely work with him again if I need repairs. Thank you.

Prior to working with Creative Concepts, I had trouble getting quotes from companies--I let P. Muha at Creative Concepts know about the difficulties I had been having. He listened to my frustration, and understood that it was very important to me to get my back porch steps repaired before winter weather arrived. I walk with a cane and my husband is 83 years old. Our old steps and railings were very wobbly. Creative Concepts came out to measure within a couple days of our contact, he came back in person to discuss his work proposal options and quotes. He quickly scheduled our work and both the new steps and the garage fascia were completed in less than one work day. The area was completely cleaned up, and their work was awesome. The steps look so great I posted a picture of them on Facebook to show off to my family and friends. Now I can confidently go up and down the stairs feeling safe and a huge worry is off my shoulders. The price and terms were very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend Creative Concepts to anyone. They are the Best in my book.

Dan created a custom built-in for our entryway with bench, shoe storage, shelves, and overhead cabinets. From the very start he was a pleasure to work with as we collaborated on something that would be one-of-a-kind and perfect for our space. His crew built the unit offsite in 5-6 weeks then assembled/installed in-home over several hours, and we couldn't be happier with the look, functionality, and high quality of his work. Will certainly recommend to anyone looking for built-ins, custom kitchen, or bathroom cabinetry. Thank you!

Doug was great. My new porch rails look terrific. The job took a little longer to get started but that is because I requested specific hard to find materials. But Doug found them and they look wonderful!

We hired Dave to repair and stain our back and side porches that were in pretty bad shape due to overall age and water damage. He completed the job on time and on budget (at a very fair price) and both feel very sturdy and look great, we are very pleased and would hire him (and Cindy, who did the staining) again. Thanks!

After having Brad gives me quotes for replacing my rotting front porch, I made the decision to go with composite decking and I cannot say how happy I am with that decision. The porch looks wonderful and Brad was extremely responsive to my questions, came when he said he was coming and did a wonderful job. Alot of attention to detail and I now have a porch that I feel was custom built. He also replaced cellar doors I badly needed replaced and did a wonderful job of shoring up the sides as well. I have had a lot of compliments on the work and would certainly recommend Brad to anyone looking for a porch or deck build. Wonderful job!!

Glenn's crew repaired our three-story porch by replacing a number of treated board and steps. They worked quickly and professionally. We'll hire him again for some interior built-ins soon.

We had Pat remodel our front porch, and later our master bedroom. He did excellent work on both occasions. What we also greatly appreciated was his constructive ideas, that made the final results even better. Thank you Pat.

We were so very pleased with our experience with Pro-One Builders and Painters. They did an excellent job of repairing damaged areas of our cedar siding and painting the entire house. Even more, they did an amazing job repairing our very old, very ugly front porch. The end result was fantastic, and we are enjoying the porch every day. Bogdan and his project manager Matthew were very communicative throughout the process and easy to reach with any questions. We would definitely refer this company to any family and friends who need are looking for construction or painting work.

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.
