Katie, Matthew, and Paul repaired, powerwashed, and sealed our deck so beautifully it looks like they built us a new deck! So meticulous, helpful with advice, and we'd use them again anytime. They also cleaned out front and back porch gutters and fixed a disconnected drainpipe. Fantastic. This is a lot more than I would have expected from a "handyman" service.

Scott did an excellent job power washing, sanding and staining our deck. The weather made completion of this project quite difficult, but Scott kept in constant contact with me which was very much appreciated. The end result is gorgeous and we can't wait for the sun to shine and to sit outside on a beautiful deck!

We hired Chano to paint the interior of our garage, and Chano also quoted on staining our wood deck. Chano was very professional, friendly and thorough during the quoting process and his team did excellent work. In fact, they were able to complete the job the same day Chano came out to quote. Highly recommend!

We hired Ron to install an additional set of stairs onto our deck to compliment the stairs we already had on the opposite side (going from one opening to two). He took his time measuring for accuracy, double checked his numbers, provided a bid that was fair and completed the job before the estimated schedule. Now our deck has 2 entrances creating a beautiful touch and ease of access to our new garden. Will hire again.

Roberto and his staff are great to work with from start to finish. They did a great job on our deck by first washing it, replacing some bad wood and putting two coats of stain. He was very detailed and took the extra time to go over every knook and cranny of the deck. It is simply beautiful!

My experience with property refresh was great! I hired them to clean the exterior of my house and the deck. They over satisfied my expectations! They knew what supplies to use on different material and the outcome was outstanding. I took a picture to remember it was before. Highly recommend them, they worth their charges.

Brandon helped repair a rotting railing on our deck. He worked diligently on the repair and cleaned up the entire work area when he was finished. The rotting wood extended beyond what I saw and beyond his original quote. Brandon never once said anything about it will cost more because.... he was going to stick to his quote and do what it took to get it done.

Had deck sanded and stained. Jesus and his crew did a great job. They were very efficient and finished in 4 days, due to 1 rain day delay. The deck looks brand new, again. I would call him, again, in the future for other jobs for my house.

We had several projects completed yesterday. The workmanship was remarkable! Our deck has never looked so good, we also had a mailbox with a post in the ground installed, they went the extra mile and even added a brace on the ground for the post! They replaced and painted several boards and the door facing. The cleanup was exceptional! We plan to hire them to paint the inside of our home soon!

I was looking for a company to replace my outdoor deck and Labyrinth responded. They were extremely professional and answered all of my correspondence in a timely fashion. The carpenters who came out were also professional. They moved my furniture, disconnected my grill and within 2 days, I have my new deck! The garbage is gone and furniture and grill have been reinstated. I would not hesitate to recommend Labyrinth.

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.
