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.

David & his team at JDM did a phenomenal job remodeling our bathroom on a budget. They gutted the original builders bathroom where there had been a leak in the shower behind the tile. They installed all new fixtures, including new vanity, new exhaust fan, new toilet, new sink/top, new vanity light, primed and color change the walls and ceiling. The tile work is FaNtAsTiC with custom niche in the shower. Their design suggestions regarding the tile, tile trim, and appointments helped us receive a much nicer bathroom than ANY of the other contractors we spoke to would have done for the budget... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

A very positive experience. Reached out almost immediately. I asked him to move some furniture and to cover my windows (and a mirror) with a special film. I look forward to working with him again.

Jeff provided quality services for me. He is gruff over the telephone, but was very interested in negotiating the quality of the materials for my new porch screens. He entered a low bid to get the job, and we did sort of a dance about how much I should pay him as the job progressed (but the screening materials we ended up with were more work to install), but I think we came out mutually satisfied. After I paid him the enhanced fee, while he was still working, I called him with additional input about what I thought we'd agreed to. . .and he went back over the work before leaving the job to improve the fit and the joining work. I'd definitely hire him again, and hope to do so.

I needed a old, crumbling concrete porch removed and hauled away. Mike and his crew made quick work of it and left a clean site. Very happy with McDonald construction.

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!

I would hire Exterior Construction Services again! They did a great job on our chimney and back porch. When Eric came to give us a quote, he knew exactly what we needed to have done and understood that we had a budget. He quoted me an awesome price. He knew we needed to have it done as soon as possible so Eric and his crew came on a holiday weekend since he hadn't made plans yet! We were very appreciative of that. Great Price + Great Quality + Great Service = Exterior Construction Services

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.

The work Amruss did on our porch and deck were amazing. They look brand new. I was incredibly impressed by the communication Amruss provided. Kept us up-to-date on when they would arrive and there are not a lot of places that do that.

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.
