Needed to have some lumber hauled away after a deck construction project. Alex gave us a great price, showed up on time and worked hard. Left the yard clean and was very professional. Would hire again.

Ron and his team were amazing! He was a straight shooter from the beginning to the end of the project. His craftsmanship is amazing and everything was built super solid. I love my new deck and will be using Ron for all my remodeling work in the future. Hands down the best I have worked with!

Thank you Tim for the great work, upfront pricing and honest opinions. I appreciate you coming out initially at no charge to scope my system to verify what was actually wrong. I did not like the fact that the other "pros" gave me their opinion without seeing the job with one actually telling me to call my insurance company without even seeing the job first. Job was slightly larger than initially anticipated, but the possibility was all explained up front and the additional charges were very reasonable for the work needed. Feel free to use me as a reference at anytime! Thanks again Tim & crew!!

Evan is a man who does what he says when he says he is going to do it. He designed and installed a railing on our basement stairs. It couldn’t have been easier for us. After discussing what he was going to do, he shopped for materials, went to work and finished the job in three hours. We are having him back to do a few more odds and ends. And price was more than fair. Look no further. Evan is you guy!

Karol did an excellent job on my deck. It is old and needed power washing, repair and staining. The job took 2 days and now it looks like I have a brand new deck! Thank you Karol! I would highly recommend Kosterna construction. Very professional, affordable, and reliable. 5 stars!

Jeff B. promptly responded to our request for help restoring the railings on an upstairs deck. He helped us figure out a good plan, provided the costs within 24 hours, and completed the work within two days, in spite of having to work in the hot sun. He was conscientious, careful, prompt and courteous. His price was fair. We really like the finished product and would happily hire him again for additional projects.

Needed oversize gutters, new flat roof on an addition, metal awning pushed out due to a dent, and fascia nailed down. Mike, the owner, came out for an estimate. Tony is employed by Mike and did an excellent job! He was thorough, persevered in 90 degree weather, cleaned up all around him to my liking. All in all, Quality Home Remodelers were excellent to have for the job we needed done. I will call on them again in the future and I will recommend them to my friends! Thank you, Mike and Tony!!!

I hired David and Bob to replace two patios and a roof deck with trex. The project entailed demo, replacing joists, building benches, laying the trex, and took about 10 days. David and Bob were punctual, worked hard, and I am very happy with the quality of the work. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others. Thanks!

This was the easiest contractor I have ever had to work with. Brad demo'd my current deck and converted it to a one level deck. Brad's pricing was right in line with other quotes I received, he always showed up right on time, and the work was done exactly how I had envisioned it. He was even flexible enough to push back the original install date when I requested it at the last minute because I was going out of town. Do not bother trying someone else, this is the guy to hire. I strongly recommend him.

Glenn did a great job building new stairs for our deck. Work wise I would give him 5 stars, he had some issues that impacted his timeliness that were genuine (car trouble) and could have communicated better but he was always responsive, stuck to the budget and completed the work within the 2 days he promised. I would certainly consider him again for this type of work.

I cannot say enough positive things about Efrain and his crew at EV decks. Over the summer, I decided to build a 12x12 extension to my small 10x12 deck. I was able to build the foundation for the deck, but ran out of time to complete it so I decided to go to thumbtack. EVDecks was able to get started right away and their quality of work was outstanding. Everything passed inspection with flying colors and they were even able to match the construction of our existing deck flawlessly.

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.
