Spoke with Rob. He happened to have time that day to get the job done. He removed rusted parts of our wrought iron pillars on our porch and not only welded new on, but bolted to the concrete for security. He was out in the cold for 3 hours and did a fantastic job. Highly recommend Black Lion Welding. Won't be disappointed.

Karol and his team did a fantastic job on our place. We had them install new Trex on our front porch and stain our back deck. They did so in an extremely timely and efficient manner - and at a really great price! Very responsive and knowledgeable. We highly recommend!

Jacob and his team did an excellent job on our project. They took care of all of the details and were extremely reasonably priced. Very pleasant experience and highly recommend Chwalek. Thank you again. Our deck looks like new. Unfortunately I cannot get the photos to upload to Thumbtack.

Jose was on time and he did a great job! He replaced my porch steps and although it was a little more difficult than he expected, he figured out how to fix the problem and the end result looks good. He cleaned up after himself as well. Very nice to work with and I would highly recommend him. It's great to find someone reliable that is serious about doing a good job. Thanks again Jose.

Quick to respond and came to the house on time. The door he hung looks great. He Walked through the house with muddy boots. And did not clean up after he was done- left the old hinges, screws and wood dust, etc on the floor.

We have hired many people on Thumbtack and David has by far been the best to work with. Repaired wood front porch, deck, and siding. He was to able solve a lot of complicated challenges with very smart and practical solutions. Our home is more than 100 years old and Dave intimately understood the quirks of older homes and how to approach repairs while being true to the original. The harder the task the more excited he seemed to take it on and the more proud upon completion. Would hire him again and highly recommend.

I would hire Exterior Construction Services again! They did a great job on our chimney and back porch. When Eric came to give us a quote, he knew exactly what we needed to have done and understood that we had a budget. He quoted me an awesome price. He knew we needed to have it done as soon as possible so Eric and his crew came on a holiday weekend since he hadn't made plans yet! We were very appreciative of that. Great Price + Great Quality + Great Service = Exterior Construction Services

After having Brad gives me quotes for replacing my rotting front porch, I made the decision to go with composite decking and I cannot say how happy I am with that decision. The porch looks wonderful and Brad was extremely responsive to my questions, came when he said he was coming and did a wonderful job. Alot of attention to detail and I now have a porch that I feel was custom built. He also replaced cellar doors I badly needed replaced and did a wonderful job of shoring up the sides as well. I have had a lot of compliments on the work and would certainly recommend Brad to anyone looking for a porch or deck build. Wonderful job!!

We have a 120 year old Historic Blue Island, Illinois home with big "L" shaped porch that unfortunately was rotting away. We called all kinds on contractors to look at the porch and offer an estimate--they came and we never heard back. I guess the job was too complicated. It was complicated. We wanted to keep the original historic look and yet do the job with a lasting quality craftsmanship. We turned to Thumbtack and found Gene Steele, from G.A. STEELE CONSTRUCTION. Gene Steele seemed to recognize immediately the needs and values we wanted to work with. We were pressing against the winter weather, starting the job the last week of October--that ended up being our biggest obstacle, but many other changes had to be made as we encountered the work. Concrete, cement footing for the porches piers, rebuilding the piers, and the entire rebuilding of the under the porch supports. Gene worked with it all. When the Polar Vortex hit in December it was obvious the work would have to hold off, yet he secured a site to pre-stain the decking so when a day opened up it was ready. I found Gene incredibly knowledgeable and flexible. He has promised to come back out in the Spring to check on a few items and stain the deck one last finish coat. The entire cost was over the original bid, but there was good reason and was not a surprise to us since he kept us in the loop about the problems. We feel so much more secure now that our porch is restored, crafted, and simply looking good.

Had C&C Gonzalez paint my large back yard deck and they did an excellent job. They were courteous and meticulous in preparing, painting and cleaning up the job site. Price was very reasonable. Extremely happy with the results. Will have them do other jobs in the future without hesitation.

We own an apartment building in IN but live in NC. I found this website and placed a request for roof replacement while I was traveling in Chicago area. Joel responded fast and gave me one of the best bids, plus fixing some door trims, sidings, facia without extra charge. I checked out his references, discussed many technique issues and decided to let him do the job even I haven't even met him in person. He worked very fast, I eventually visited the building and inspected his work, I was very satisfied.

I've used Lukasz three different times, twice for work in my condo and once for condo building repairs. He has built a new ceiling in an enclosed porch, done electrical work (adding new outlets both inside and outside) and for the condo association he repaired garage wood trim and gutters. He has done a great job and made sure all work was finished satisfactorily.

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.
