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!

Jake is not only a warm, friendly guy but his business partner Jeremy is equally great. They are both dedicated, use time wisely, add great architectural taste and ideas in a project, and work very hard. Work was done on time, within budget totally, and a few extras were added as a bonus that we had not thought of. They are great workers and designers and just all together great guys. I cannot recommend this company enough. I know you will be delighted with their work. They mostly do the work themselves with subcontractors where needed, such as cement work or electrical, but they are master carpenters themselves with a great view of a project and how to make it the very best for you. Thank you so much, Jake and Jeremy.

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.

It was an all around pleasure working with Luke! He always responded quick, showed up on time, and really knew what he was doing. I had him instal new baseboards and trim in my mother-in-law’s house. We are both very happy with the quality of work and would recommend him to anyone needing a detail oriented carpenter. Thanks again, Luke!

Trent and Jacob are amazing!! They do great work for a great value. I ended up having them do more than I expected. They are all around great handymen/carpenters. They pretty much did it all from tile on the kitchen floor to drywall to a new door frame and a roof! Love these guys. I am having them come back to do the rest of my house when I am ready. Highly recommend!

We did a major gut-remodel of our home and Kevin worked on various carpentry projects including installing kitchen cabinets, custom trim work, building a custom mantel and window seat. He was always reliable, courteous and did a job thoroughly and completely to our satisfaction before moving on to the next thing. I would highly recommend him.

Veras Construction was great to work with. They painted several rooms in my house including a 2 story foyer and changed a large chandelier. They arrived on time, finished ahead of expected, did an excellent job, and even went out and purchased lightbulbs for the new fixture. Would definitely recommend.

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.
