We own and maintain multiple dwellings and have undertaken quite a few remodeling projects over the past 40+ years, so we're experienced with lots of carpenters and contractors. Dan is far and away the best contractor we've hired--no one else comes close. He's proven to be creative, extremely competent, and conscientious. He's also reasonably priced, always punctual, and reliably on schedule. As an added bonus, Dan is pleasant and easy to have around. We've used him for several major projects over the past few years, and he always makes the chaos of remodeling bearable.

Danny is a knowledgeable professional. He even gave advice on some things that should be corrected by our builder. I will definitely use his services again.

Adam has a finish carpenter background but demonstrated excellent capabilities to replace 6+ eight ft cedar fence posts and to manage the repair and reinforcement of a gas line. Great knowledge, attitude, communication and work ethic. I have already hired him again to complete a number of other exterior and interior projects. Would highly recommend.

Hugh's cabinets are the best! Solid wood, dovetail drawers, soft close slides and doors! You can't find cabinets with quality and beauty like these for the price he gives you anywhere in town! I'm a trim carpenter and I've installed many many cabinets and these are just amazing! As well as Hugh giving the greatest customer satisfaction you can find! Thanks again for my new kitchen!

About

In an industry where everyone wants to get it done and get paid, I take the time to do the little things you may never notice, but make all the difference.

About

I primarily do electrical work but am also a licensed and capable general contractor. I have over 30 years' experience in all phases and sizes of construction, from very small to fifteen or twenty million dollars. Typically, I subcontract most of the work other than electrical, and I know several qualified, honest, and reasonably priced individuals in most all crafts. I am semiretired and not out to get rich but rather make a little money and help people get the job done in this tough economy. Typically, the customer buys the materials, and I charge $45 per hour for electrical work, but hard bids are also available. References are available upon request.

About

We keep our overhead costs low to provide affordable craftsmanship. We are not a low-ball contractor – we are frugal and cost conscious to better serve your budget.

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.
