This was perhaps one of the best experiences that i've had on a; Thumbtack. Sean was incredibly profession and clearly was a skilled carpenter. He installed some closet trim, window sills, and even replaced some stairs (on the fly). I would highly recommend him.

I hired Sean to help install storage platforms in the garage of my new home. We couldn't end up doing the project due to the way my home was constructed. Sean walked over to another home under construction to evaluate the trusses and felt like it was too risky to install. I agreed and paid him for his time and effort in coming out and his honest opinion. I will hire Sean again for future projects!

I hired Wharton Construction to install a coffered ceiling in my living room and kitchen. Josh provided me with a competitive bid, a few reputable references, and a sample piece to show me what the end result would look like. The entire ceiling was a custom design, and Josh went to great lengths to make sure some of the more complex details came out looking great! And it did, we could not be more happy with our custom ceiling! He even took care of some items that were not on the original quote. I would definitely hire him again, and in fact I have. Since the completion of the ceiling, Josh has done some custom cabinetry work in our kitchen, including a built-in buffet and a chimney style range hood that matches our existing cabinetry. He did an excellent job with these pieces as well! I would highly recommend Wharton Construction for any custom carpentry work.

Very professional company with great quality work. The foreman really seemed to know his stuff and it was very evident that his # 1 goal was making me happy which is the way it should be. A+!

Chris has done a lot of work for and with me. I am his mother but his work can speak for itself. My son is a carpenter by trade but there’s not much he can’t do. We flipped a house a few years ago. He works on my house as well. He is reasonable and is going to steer you in the right direction. He has been in the construction trade for fifteen years. The backsplash, kitchen cabinets and flooring in the grey kitchen he did by himself. He assembled the cabinets and hung them. He completely created the grey and silver custom shower in my bathroom. He assembled my bath vanity and installed it. Put the top on it and hung the huge medicine cabinet and lights. He created the closet in my kitchen for my washer and dryer.

James is a very hard working and eager to please craftsman. He is very fair price wise and he is very knowledgeable when diagnosing the best way to attack the problem. He was able to complete the job in the initial visit. I would highly recommend him for any job requiring a carpenter.

Hoosier carpenters was able to help us out quickly and stayed late to finish. I needed knobs on my kitchen cabinets, caulking of new floor moldings and some touch up mud/drywall work on my fireplace. The carpenters were courteous and cleaned up their work when they were finished. I was worried that the mud wasn't smooth and the carpenter retouched the project before he left. My fireplace is now beautiful!!

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 you tip cabinet installers?

In general, home service providers such as electricians, plumbers and contractors are professionals who don’t expect tips. They expect to do a job for you for the specific price they quoted. Of course, they may appreciate a tip for a job particularly well done or for which they’ve gone beyond what’s normally expected, such as completing the project early or under budget. Even better than a tip, it’s always appropriate to leave a positive review online after a good experience.

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.

How much is custom cabinetry?

Custom cabinets can be built for any room, including bedroom closets and built-in armoires. Measured carefully and built precisely, custom cabinetry can increase storage and beautify any room. The national average for building custom cabinets ranges from $500 to $1,200 per linear foot. The cost is highly variable because there are so many styles, colors, glazes and other options. In general, the linear footage of the cabinets, the materials used to build them, and the cost of the labor will determine the cost. Solid wood costs more than plywood and wood veneer, and costs vary among different types of wood; maple and cherry cabinets are more expensive than pine. Glass-front cabinets can cost more, as can decorative hinges, handles and door pulls, which can cost $2-$45 each; choose carefully to stay within your budget and pull off the exact look you’re going for. Some carpenters also charge for installation, on average $100 per cabinet box. Additional molding and trim, such as crown molding at the ceiling, cost an average of $70 per 8-foot section, and adding finished ends to exposed cabinets averages $100-$200.

How much does it cost to have kitchen cabinets installed?

In any kitchen, the cabinets are the main focus, so you want to make sure new or replacement cabinets are installed correctly. A professional carpenter can properly, securely mount new cabinets to the wall; the national average cost for this service is $7,725, although the cost varies widely depending on the type of cabinets, their material and their size, and the accessories you add. A typical fee is $70 per linear foot to remove existing cabinets and assemble and install new ones; the cost is less if you do the demolition and removal yourself. Stock cabinets are the least expensive to have installed, ranging from $75 to $400 each; semi-custom cabinets range from $150 to $900 each; and custom cabinets cost from $500 to $1,400 each. Wood cabinets are more expensive than those made from plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and finished with a laminate. Wood cabinets range in cost from $80 to $160 per linear foot. Laminate-finished cabinets cost $35 to $75 per linear foot, on average.
