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.

Finally, a contractor who shows upnwhen they say they will, finishes the job in the allotted time and the quote matched the final cost!! We couldn't be more pleased with the jobs that Joe and his colleague Brian completed for us. We originally had Joe come out to rewire our bathroom vanity light, cap off a flood light, install a new flood light and add a back porch light. We were so impressed that we had them power wash our patio. The patio looks brand new! Joe and Brian were very knowledgable on the work that needed to be performed. They finished the jobs quickly, accurately and left the rooms clean. We are pleased to have found a reliable contractor for our property in South Bend.

As soon as 811 did their thing, he was here within a couple of hours, putting us our 6’ wooden privacy fence. He was the lowest estimate and is not out to get rich! His personality and manners was a selling point as well! I recommend him for fencing as well as anything else you need done! I will use him again in the Spring to redo my front porch! Thanks Steve!

    K&H came through for me in a tight situation when my home buying plans hit a snag. Fannie and Freddie were literally the seller of a house on Weller Street, here in La Porte Indiana. Marcin from K&H cleaned the basement, in and around the porch outside windows. Even with power outages occurring frequently that week he enabled me to get the mortgage I have today. K&H literally worked night and day for me.Thanks, K&H Contracting!

        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.
