Myron runs a tight ship. The job we hired him for was some drywall repair but after reading reviews and meeting with him I asked if he could do several other things so we could list our house. The answer was always, yeah we can do that. I never got the feeling he was trying to pad anything, he gave me honest feedback that a home buyer would and likely wouldn't care about. When it came time to do the work, he made sure his guys were always on time, they were professional, and very clean. This job was pretty big so the attention to the little details was nice. They had to come back out a couple of times to clean up some small things as drywall set but Myron never once complained and simply got it done. My ceiling looks better than it ever has. Ball Homes should hire him for the drywall work, their original drywallers clearly don't know how to take care of smooth ceilings like Myron's team does!

Dave is an exceptionally talented carpenter and a great guy! My wife and I just moved to the area and found that in order to get our 6 foot grand piano to the basement, it was going to require the removal of practically the entire staircase so the movers could slide it down on a ramp. Not knowing anyone in the area, my wife went on Thumbtack, which resulted in our hiring Dave. He was extremely professional, fair in his pricing, honest, and forthcoming in his explanations of what the job required and in each supply he needed to get. When he got into the job, he discovered that the original staircase was not installed properly and could have become a safety hazard. When he reinstalled them after the piano was moved, he made them sturdier and safer, and did a great job, even on blending the top of the stairs into the existing wood flooring. Dave was pleasant and we looked forward to his visits to our home. He should also add cat-rescuing to his resume, as more than once during the job they found their way downstairs somehow and then weren't sure how to get back up, after which Dave would emerge from the basement carrying his hammer in one hand and a fluffy cat in the other. Definitely hire Dave Becker - you will be glad you did.

I needed some upgrades in my house before it was sold. Mr Johnson was equally adept at carpenter, plumbing, roofing, painting. He was dependable, courteous, didn't leave messes, and his prices were reasonable. I would recommend him without reservation and employ him again if the need arises.

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.
