Brian and his crew built us a fabulous sturdy deck for a front porch over an existing concrete patio. They only took 2 days to clean out the area, build a 30ft deck with steps and rail, and clean up the area. I would recommend ABS services for any type of job. They are very professional and wonderful to work with.

They covered an area adj to my porch with river Rock and stepping stones. Also planted tall grass. They tore up a little of the yard but put it back as it was and put grass seed in my yard and my neighbors yard. They sign hard and do a great job. I would hire them again.

Our front porch looks amazing! Ron and I discussed the options available and he was great about advising on pros & cons of the different choices. The screening material I chose was back ordered, and it delayed the job until we were on vacation. We returned home to a beautifully done porch. The trim looks great and we are enjoying the fruits of Ron's labor! I would recommend him if you need a similar job done.

My husband and I met Tim and Michele Mullins at the Flower & Patio Show. Tim gave us an estimate for a screened porch addition. We obtained two other estimates, but Tim's was the best and we liked him. He came to our house two more times before construction was started to work out details. Michele was very involved and great to work with. Jamie and Tim's crew were polite and kept a very neat work place. We are very happy with our screened porch. We plan to work with Tim's All Types Contracting again.

I had purchased two houses that needed major repairs and renovations from the roof to the ground. (Windows, doors, plumbing, replacing drywall, flooring, etc...) After receiving a variety of estimates from numerous companies, Myers Construction was the one! Not only was his price reasonable, his service was amazingly fast, friendly, and very trustworthy. Steve’s communication has been outstanding, He has been updating me with daily calls and pictures. I had been surprised with the final results it all looks like a brand new house. Both properties had a deadline and Steve was able to complete it on time. Highly recommended!!

Miguel completed three jobs for my home , and in each case took the time to explain what he thought should be done, brought me into the process to discuss the best and most economical way achieve the optimum result and had me check his progress. Each job; repair drywall, remove chandelier, and replace porch planks all look great.

Sean has completed several projects for us including framing our basement and reconstructing our front porch handrails. He's already scheduled to do more work for us soon. He's hardworking, skillful, and his price is fair. It's challenging to find someone who has excellent craftsmanship and is an all around great person. I never hesitate to recommend him to those looking to complete a project.

We were extremely pleased with the work, the professionalism, the prompt response, and the reasonable price. In fact, one of the reasons that we selected this bid was that they actually quoted a price. This was not the case with other respondents on a Thumbtack or Porch. We made the right choice and will happily use them again.

Harry was very competitive on pricing some work to my chimney and a front porch column. He was able to match the brick from 1924 on the house and he was done within a couple days. Highly recommend!

I had a property that was in need of major porch repair. It had become a safety issue especially for the upstairs weight bearing down on the lower level. Unfortunately, damage under the porch showed much rot and not much foundation. Brad was quick to give a thorough estimate, opened up his schedule to do a complete overhaul and did an excellent job keeping my tenants safe during construction. The end result was a strong, beautiful new porch and he beat everyone else out on price. I am very pleased with his service.

Jeff and Jeff (Father and Son) came out to give me a quote on a back screened in porch. They were the definition of professionalism. It was clear in our interactions that they take their jobs seriously and will provide great service. Can't say enough about how great of a first impression they left.

1. Repainted exterior of three story, 3 color Victorian house, did all associated carpentry and scraping, re-floored (including hand sand and stain) exterior porch, repaired and replaced gutters, re-painted interior of house. 2. Fixed burst pipes, replaced all powdered mortar in basement, insulated basement. 3. Built and installed permanent attic stairs. 4. Landscaping including entire yard till and re-seed, multiple plantings, and fence repair. Absolutely perfect! I have renovated three antique homes before this one and have never had a contractor like Eleazar and the Emarias Group before. They were very reasonably priced, stayed on budget, always arrived when expected, did the best quality work I have ever had, always cleaned up at the end of the day, and even brought me lunch on occasion! I found I could trust Eleazar and his group completely, so much so that they often worked inside the house when I was out of state. I initially made contact with Eleazar when another home in my area was being renovated. I was able to observe daily the differences between the Emarias crew and the rest of the contractors on site. I know that this home owner eventually booted everyone else and now uses Emarias exclusively. At my recommendation, four of my neighbors had their homes painted by Emarias. One neighbor also had a bathroom remodel done. All are Eleazar and Emarias Group devotees now!

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.
