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.

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.

We hired Dave to repair and stain our back and side porches that were in pretty bad shape due to overall age and water damage. He completed the job on time and on budget (at a very fair price) and both feel very sturdy and look great, we are very pleased and would hire him (and Cindy, who did the staining) again. Thanks!

I would hire Exterior Construction Services again! They did a great job on our chimney and back porch. When Eric came to give us a quote, he knew exactly what we needed to have done and understood that we had a budget. He quoted me an awesome price. He knew we needed to have it done as soon as possible so Eric and his crew came on a holiday weekend since he hadn't made plans yet! We were very appreciative of that. Great Price + Great Quality + Great Service = Exterior Construction Services

I had Mike replace my front porch and steps and cannot be happier. Mike took his time to ensure that I was completely satisfied; he was timely and very professional. I would definitely use him for any future deck projects and highly recommend him.

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!!

Eli Sandifer with Expert Style did an outstanding job repairing my concrete front porch steps and replacing the wrought iron railing which fell down. Eli is extremely professional with a very pleasant disposition. He was very responsive initially and throughout the whole process of repairing the steps and railing. I am extremely pleased with the repair. My front porch looks amazing. It has real curb appeal now. I will be hiring Expert Style for additional concrete work next month. This is the beginning of a long-term work relationship. I would recommend Eli to all my friends and neighbors. In fact, while Eli was making repairs to my front porch, he was approached by several of my neighbors for their projects.

Mike Israel was hired to fix our concrete stamped patio. The company who installed it did not do a good job. Mike came out promptly and was able to clean up and seal the concrete. Looks better now and we are happy with the job he did. Pleasure to work with for estimate and job completion. You can tell he takes pride in his work. Would hire him again. Highly recommend doing business with his company.

I had Perdomo Construction build a deck for around my pool and they did a great job. The price was fair, they were able to start right away and finished quickly. They have good ideas & solutions. The crew is professional and they did a quality job, my deck is perfect. I would definitely use them again on future projects.

Gene was amazing! He was one of the first contractors that contacted me once I submitted a job on thumbtack, this was seriously within minutes of me posting. He stood out because he was the only contractor that was genuine regarding how he was going to handle the actual quote of the job. He offered to talk over the phone. Within minutes we were discussing my situation and during that call he answered all of my questions, addressed all of my concerns, and he was just super knowledgeable. I mean I can not say enough about how dependable he has been. He completed the work within weeks of getting ahold of him and thats saying a lot because he had to work around Thanksgiving and Christmas! He also kept me fully updated with the progress of all the work since I live a distance from the property that needed the work done. The countertops came out 100 times better than I had ever imagined, and the shower he took the time to correct the pre-exsisting issues to ensure that when he put in the new shower we would not have reoccurring problems like we had previously! I highly recommend Gene!

    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!

    My experience with Thomas McNichols was very pleasant. He helped me with the design of my remodeling project with regard to the layout and products. In 2008 I hired Thomas McNichols to remodel my home. I had an unfinished attic which I was now going to finish and add a dormer to. I had them build me two bedrooms, a walk in closet, bathroom, linen closet and 3 storage closets. Central air was also added to my second floor. Before the second floor could be complete, my existing stairways to my attic and basement had to be taken out and rerouted. Brand new stairs were built to my seond floor and basement. Once that project was done, I had my kitchen completely remodeled. It was a complete gut job and they also opened up a back porch to enlarge the kitchen. While the kitchen renovation was going on, new siding was being put on my whole house and new front stairs were built. The entire house renovation took 4 1/2 months to complete. In 2009 I hired Thomas McNichols again to put new siding on my garage and pour a new patio in my backyard. In 2013 I again hired Thomas McNichols to gut and remodel a first floor bathroom which took 3 weeks to complete. At that time, they also opened up a first floor bedroom off my kitchen and converted it to a family room. That job took 10 days to complete. I could not have been more pleased with the work that Thomas Builders & Construction Co. performed at my house. I was very pleased with the outcome. My house is beautiful. This company is very professional, they were always on time, they cleaned up after themselves every day and never left me a mess, and every step of the construction was explained to me along the way. There were no surprises, they were very patient with me and very reasonable in their rates. The quality of the work was outstanding. I recommend Thomas McNichols to everyone I know.

      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.
