We had two decks power washed and stained by Kosterna Construction. They were able to do the job right away and for a good price. The decks look great and the hard-working team was great about moving heavy flower boxes and furniture. They even threw in a wash and stain for a big wooden flower box on our roof deck. The only reason I can't give a perfect rating is that they did not always arrive at the time we had arranged. It was not a problem for me as my schedule is flexible, but other Thumbtack users may want to be aware of this.

Contractor was highly competent, and completed project within the estimated time frame. Took the time to explain construction details of the pergola, and answered all questions. Would highly recommend and/or enlist for similar projects or remodeling.

David is absolutely by the best! He was prompt and courteous, extremely informative. We hired him to do stain our deck and pergola, and the care he took to ensure that he got the job right is unparalleled. I was initially skeptical of hiring someone from the internet however David and Custom Finish lived up to their outstanding reputation. I highly recommend Custom Finish,His work is absolutely fabulous our deck looks awesome! I only wished I had known about them sooner!

Marco and his Team did an amazing job transforming my backyard with a new Brick Paver patio and walkway with a built in Pergola and new built in wooden staircase. Also when the job was complete they installed landscaping that included plants and mulch at no extra cost. I would highly recommend this company to anyone !!

Jim installed a great pergola for me last year. It was solid cedar 18' x 16' post to post with 1' over hang on each side. I just love the way Jim made the whole experience so easy and his price was fair. I would recommend him to anyone.

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.
