Lakefront sanded the deck in my backyard. He was detail-oriented and did a good job. I would hire him again for future handyman services. He was timely and came to my home prepared for the job.

My experience with Shannon at Above the Rest Construction was outstanding! He installed a pine privacy fence for me and I couldn't be more satisfied. I found his pricing more than fair. So much so, we negotiated adding on a small deck off my sunroom. I am thrilled with both products! Shannon was prompt and communicated with me extremely well as I was out of town when the installation was done. Shannon was fair and honest which is hard to find these days. He even got my project finished early!! Being that he is a general contractor, I plan to use him for some additional projects inside my home!! Definitely call Shannon at Above the Rest Construction! He WILL NOT disappoint!!

More than a handyman: Mark's A-1 helped us custom design and build a small mahogany deck surround for our hot tub. Courteous and clean-cut, Mark kept a tidy worksite for this 3 day project. I can't wait for him to complete the other jobs on my to-do list!

Justin and his crew worked on building a stamped patio and stone edging for me. We really liked the quality of the work and the efforts they took to achieve that. While building patio, they came next day and grind the grouts, recolor the patches with the same color and wash it for multiple times. This was delight for us. After the patio is build, Justin fixed the yard and is going to put the grass back on free of cost. I think price he charged was competitive. We changed the design of the patio a lot and Justin was able to accommodate all that with his own suggestions. Communication was very easy with Justin and everything was over the text which was great for me. He also come with us to Home Depot to select the stones and firepit. He always informed me upfront when his crew will be working around the home. Although, I hardly interacted with other crew members, I didn't feel uncomfortable with them being on property and around the family. Also, Justin was always on site every time and didn't leave the work on others. As requested, they took care not to damage our neighbor's yard.

Owner Justin was prompt and professional in communicating with me at all times during my project! He was very friendly, highly respectful and showed an extreme desire to make sure that I was satisfied and happy with the results! He answered every question and was knowledgeable about the pertinent codes. He explained his pricing philosophy and encouraged me to compare estimates guaranteeing he would be substantially below other deck builders. He used quality material and I am extremely pleased with his workmanship and business practice! He definitely went the extra mile by using his auger to dig the holes and planting my trees beside my new deck and moving my patio table and umbrella onto my new deck sanctuary!! I am very glad I hired him for my job and would definitely recommend him for deck building! I would give him more than a 5 star ⭐️ rating if I could!

Fantastic experience! The crew were pleasant, on time hard working and professional. Jamie built a beautiful deck/porch in 2 days and the quality of the work is admirable. He even took care of a couple other ‘fixes’ which was much appreciated. Each day they left the site spotless. What a delight to find a business that truly takes pride in every aspect of a job and delivers quality work on time! I look forward to hiring them again.

We have had Myers Construction do a few odd jobs for us. Dry wall in the garage, new light fixture in the laundry room, and replaced a bad sink in our bathroom. Steve does a GREAT job, stays on task, and actually cleans up after himself when he is done. We have been very satisfied with his work and will call him again when we need him. We have had to have a lot of work done on our house for one reason or another, and I am more happy with Steve's work, than the "big" contractors that we have had to have in here. We are very glad that we found him!!!!! We have been very impressed with him, and will hire him again when something comes up.

I finally got a deck built after 2 years of no response and no shows thanks to Jeff at Westco. From the time Jeff came out and quoted to the end result was 9 days. Once material was delivered my deck was built in a day. LOVING IT!

Brandon Matlock and his crew built a wooden fence for us. From the beginning Brandon was very professional and gave his recommendations on what he thought would work best for us. He was very open to suggestions even during the construction of the fence.

DS Restoration was fast and effective. They were quick in getting back to me after I posted my project on Thumbtack, and then were able to help me fix my front porch in much less time and at a much lower cost than I expected. Throughout the process the communication was always clear and polite. I would definitely recommend their service.

I had a property that was in need of major porch repair. It had become a safety issue especially for the upstairs weight bearing down on the lower level. Unfortunately, damage under the porch showed much rot and not much foundation. Brad was quick to give a thorough estimate, opened up his schedule to do a complete overhaul and did an excellent job keeping my tenants safe during construction. The end result was a strong, beautiful new porch and he beat everyone else out on price. I am very pleased with his service.

Max did an excellent job at a very fair rate. He was right in the middle of the quotes I received, but offered peace of mind with explaining what his thoughts were and how he would complete the project of building my deck. He finished the deck in 2 days time as promised and was very easy to work with. I highly recommend Max.

I recently moved into a new home and Everett has done excellent work for me. From painting and trimming to deck staining and installing doors. It is clear that he is experienced in home building and other maintenance tasks. He leaves no stone unturned and finishes the job completely. I highly recommend Everett because he gets the job done!

Keith and Isaac did a fabulous job for us, building a completely custom 6' pine privacy fence to enclose our backyard. The fence measured about 200 linear feet and included two gates. Our job was started and completed less than 2 weeks from the date of hire with prompt communication. They were also very professional and very respectful. Their strong work ethic was so apparent, arriving exactly when they said they would--even in cold weather! Every step of the way, they had our satisfaction in mind. If there was an aesthetic that they weren't sure about, they made sure to ask our preferences and gave us options along the way. They absolutely knew what they were doing, and this made us feel very secure in our choice of American Vet's Home Repair. I would absolutely hire them again, and, in fact, already have! They will be out once the ground thaws to remove a large, unsightly shrub. We also plan to hire them to stain and seal our deck, as well as the fence they built, sometime at the end of this summer once the wood has had time to settle/weather a bit longer. Thanks Keith and Isaac!

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.
