Thomas was a amazing carpenter, and does a amazing job. He is a carpenter that does quality work and actually has pride in his work. He and his helped are excellent and if i could give more than 5 stars on here I would. Thomas and Jay were the best company I have delt with. They cleaned up after them selves, moved back all the furniture, but most important they did quality work. This guy is the real deal, anyone looking for a carpenter , call this guy. U won't regret it, I am a very picky guy as far as work, quality and really couldn't find anything to complain about. Amazing job. He installed 550 feet of crown molding, first floor 5 1/4 and second floor 4 1/4 , painted all trimming, chalked it and nail holes, and did some of the best work of a carpenter. We are also hiring him to build and install the mud room storage. If anyone wants to talk to me about his quality of work or this review, feel free 7738419230.

Dan from National Furniture really knows what he is doing. He is a master carpenter with tons of experience, including wood floors. Dan refinished a tv chest for me and painted a bedroom nightstand. Honestly, the tv chest looks better than it did new, and Dan made the nightstand into a nice piece of furniture (he did not have much to work with). The price was very good, the service excellent, and the finished product great. Dan and his associate are very pleasant as well. The AFTER photos don't really do the piece justice.

We had Taylor Hardwood Floors refinish a deck, do some interior wood finishing (including fixing laminate flooring that was installed improperly), and a daunting soffit and fascia project that they absolutely RESCUED by MAGIC! And by magic I mean he's a highly skilled carpenter. So while they are fabulous at hardwood floors, they are also great at ANYTHING construction related. Highly recommend!

Dave was outstanding on installing new vinyl planking floor due to water damage to my old existing laminate flooring. He initially met in person to scope out work and gave an estimate and time frame and where to start so I could move furniture. I was able to learn from him as I assisted with the install. He gave me pointers and was very professional, always on time, cleaned up, couldn't be happier with how things went. I keep his card with me to pass along to my friends and family. Great carpenter!

Matt contacted us immediately with a quote. He fit us on on short notice and his pricing was very fair. The request for a mesh screen to be added to custom cabinetry was turned down by other carpenters as they didn't want the risk of working with such cabinetry. Matt took on the job with no hesitation he did an exceptional job. We look forward with continuing to do business with him and CKM Carpentry. Thank you Matt!

My projects were completed exactly as discussed, and within the promised time-frame. The carpenter who did the work (Louis) was an absolute craftsman, and did beautiful work. He was easy to reach via phone and text, and he took the time to walk me through any questions that I had throughout the project. I could not be happier with the job they did, or the service that they provided.

Christopher remodeled our bathroom inn April of this year, he came highly recommended by a family friend who had hired Rayson Remodeling to install hardwood flooring throughout their entire first floor. He was extremely knowledgeable upon first meeting him for the initial estimate and gave us a fair proposal in comparison to other contractors who also bid the job. He was very punctual and worked long hours untill the job was completed. If i can say one thing about Christopher it is that he is a very meticulous carpenter and never sacrificed quality for time or money. Thanks again Christopher.

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.

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.

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.
