I chose Brian at LoPrestis Services after vetting several vendors and considering other outside estimates and I am glad that I did! He replaced an ancient water heater that had a busted drain valve, making a standard replacement even more difficult, but he worked quickly and thoroughly to complete the removal and installation. He even offered to pick up the new water heater from Home Depot as a courtesy saving me time and money. The new heater works great! I strongly recommend choosing Brian for your project.

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.

Celeste Sullivan, Chicago, Il Working with Kyle was a pleasure. I met with several contractors that said they knew how to covert a drywall staircase to a wood handrail and iron spindle staircase but they never returned to do the job. I met with Kyle from (The Woodwork Guy). He was very professional, knowledgeable and reasonable with his pricings. He showed me pictures of work that he done before even starting the project. He arrived promptly for the installation and stayed within time frame for completion. I liked the fact that the after-work cleanup was done quite well. Kyle’s quality of work had exceeded all of my expectations of what I had in vision .I highly recommend Kyle to anyone who needs installation for stairs or staircases. I just wish I had more work for him. Thanks, Kyle!

I hired Paul to install a ceiling fan after I tried installing myself and failed. He was very responsive to my request and provided an analysis of why I couldn't get it installed myself. He provided me with options of how I would like the fan installed along with speed control, options to purchase switch. He completed the work in about an hour showing his knowledge & experience. The final installation came out great and are extremely happy that we hired him. Look forward to calling him back for future projects!

I can't give this company 5 stars because I requested my house to be power washed. Brandon did a great job but he did not power wash the soffits or eavestroughs. When I mentioned these areas he said when we did the walk through he thought I only wanted the siding power washed. I told him I didn't know this was `a la cart. I pointed out green areas on some areas of the siding that was my concern but I wanted the whole house power washed. I was told they could come back for an additional charge to do Soffits and eaves but I felt it should have been done from the beginning. I had already paid them $400. The front of my house was never done. I told Brandon if he couldn't do the front porch I understood because we had Christmas decorations but he could have done the siding around the garage. Lesson learned. Brandon should have asked me if I wanted the soffits and eavestroughs cleaned when we did the walk through.

Prior to working with Creative Concepts, I had trouble getting quotes from companies--I let P. Muha at Creative Concepts know about the difficulties I had been having. He listened to my frustration, and understood that it was very important to me to get my back porch steps repaired before winter weather arrived. I walk with a cane and my husband is 83 years old. Our old steps and railings were very wobbly. Creative Concepts came out to measure within a couple days of our contact, he came back in person to discuss his work proposal options and quotes. He quickly scheduled our work and both the new steps and the garage fascia were completed in less than one work day. The area was completely cleaned up, and their work was awesome. The steps look so great I posted a picture of them on Facebook to show off to my family and friends. Now I can confidently go up and down the stairs feeling safe and a huge worry is off my shoulders. The price and terms were very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend Creative Concepts to anyone. They are the Best in my book.

Albert completed one bathroom that included ripping out and replacing a stall shower with tile, vinyl plank flooring and installing new trim. We've already rehired him to do our other bathroom as well. He's responsive, on time, patient while we changed our minds and his prices are very fair. We will definitely being hiring him again, probably for our kitchen, and recommending him to friends and family.

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!!

I was impressed by the level of service and patience of Aidan during the installation of my TV bracket. My apartment, in a building from the 1920s, is of an unknown wall types, which didn't phase him. Aidan was kind, professional and friendly. I highly recommend him for any project.

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.
