Dan came out to install a new expansion tank and pressure relief valve, and did a great job! He came out for a free estimate then did the work on the spot! Very professional and very good pricing!! I will be using Dan in the future for any plumbing projects. Dan also is a carpenter and I've already found another future project for him.

Dave was outstanding on installing new vinyl planking floor due to water damage to my old existing laminate flooring. He initially met in person to scope out work and gave an estimate and time frame and where to start so I could move furniture. I was able to learn from him as I assisted with the install. He gave me pointers and was very professional, always on time, cleaned up, couldn't be happier with how things went. I keep his card with me to pass along to my friends and family. Great carpenter!

If you're reading this....you're evaluating carpenters/handymen. You can stop looking - give Chris a call. I've worked with several handymen/carpenters over the years and I can honestly say from communication to timeliness and quality of work - I got lucky selecting this guy. You're lucky if you can find a really good carpenter/handyman who you can trust. I won't be needing Thumbtack or other searches anymore and I'm pretty confident if you select Chris and his team....you'll be done searching too.

Extremely happy with everything about Brian. He was responsive, prompt (came same day), quoted the most reasonable price and dependable. I had an issue with my Badger 100 garbage disposal and Brian beat all other quotes out of the water, while not jeopardizing his expertise and workmanship. He installed a new disposal and was very competitively price but most importantly, asked about my issue and recommended a higher model. I've had issues with Badger 100 in the past - they don't last and I'm very meticulous about what goes down the drain. I've worked with tradesmen/carpenters/construction companies in the past and knew the labor involved was not extensive. Brian was honest, personable and I'd highly recommend him for any project you have. He's versed in many capacities. In fact, I would refer him to anyone looking for services. Watch out for companies that want to charge you over $150-$250 for a small project. Research your issue and get a quote from K7. So glad I found him on Thumbtack!!! Highly recommend.

I am extremely happy with the work Lorenzo has done; he does outstanding work. Lorenzo has completed several projects for me. I hired Lorenzo to refinish my basement. He transformed the space from a damp and dingy space into a warm and welcoming entertainment space for my family. We now spend more time in the basement than any other part of the house. I am so happy with the work that Lorenzo did that I hired him to do several other smaller jobs. Lorenzo has replaced a toilet that was leaking. He fixed my electoral wiring that another handyman incorrectly installed. He installed a new exterior door. I would highly recommend Lorenzo, as he does great quality work and he is up front about the cost.

Mike is currently finishing up a new deck he built at our home (after tearing out our old one). It looks fantastic, and we couldn't be happier. Mike was great to work with, had great suggestions/design ideas for the project, and is a skilled carpenter who clearly takes pride in his work and loves what he does. We would gladly hire him again for any other project. Highly recommended!

Chris is a highly skilled carpenter and knows the trade very well. He is freindly, knowledgeable and charges fair prices. I had Chris install base, shoe, door, and crown moulding in my home and it looks amazing. Chris also hung doors and chaulked and painted for me too. Chris is down to earth and won't steer you in the wrong direction with your project! I recommend him to anyone who is remodeling there home!

I have used Joel and Sage Creek on several occasions now and I have been very happy with the results. Joel is an excellent painter, a great carpenter and is capable of handing several other construction tasks very well. He is a great leader and interacted very well with the other trades on my projects. But overall Joel is reliable and very trustworthy, I had no problem giving him access to my projects allowing him to come and go as necessary without any issues. Joel and Sage Creek would be a great choice for your next project.

    Marc has been helping me with various carpentry projects for years. He is very good at following up with customers, and can be counted on to provide a fair price for excellent carpentry work. Marc has more than twenty five years as a union carpenter, foreman, and project superintendent. I would highly recommend that you give him the chance to bid your job. I have attached some photos of a large deck and gazebo that Marc constructed for me in Lockport, IL. The building inspector asked if we were going to land a helicopter on the deck, as it was constructed to last - that is what to expect when you hire a great carpenter. M. Richter Lockport, IL

    Dahlke Custom Remodel has done a lot of work for us over the years. We first hired Brandon to gut and redo our master bathroom in the Spring of 2006. In the Fall of 2006, he gutted and remodeled our hall bathroom. In the summer of 2008, we hired him again to gut our kitchen and remodel it along with the half bath on the main floor. In the summer of 2011, he did some remodeling of our wood deck to make it more user friendly. During the winter of 2012, he installed closet organizers in two of the upstairs bedrooms. Brandon is a very personable and trustworthy contractor to work with on all the projects. He is upfront about the cost and worked with me based on my budget. If I wanted something changed or added, he quickly provided me with the cost difference. He stood by his work and provided me with certificates of insurance for everyone working on my remodel projects. My dad was a finish carpenter and craftsman all his life so I'm very aware that you pay for quality work and Brandon provided the quality at a reasonable price. We have been very happy with the results!

    Christopher remodeled our bathroom inn April of this year, he came highly recommended by a family friend who had hired Rayson Remodeling to install hardwood flooring throughout their entire first floor. He was extremely knowledgeable upon first meeting him for the initial estimate and gave us a fair proposal in comparison to other contractors who also bid the job. He was very punctual and worked long hours untill the job was completed. If i can say one thing about Christopher it is that he is a very meticulous carpenter and never sacrificed quality for time or money. Thanks again Christopher.

            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.

            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.

            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.
