Absolutely fantastic. The girls he sent were courteous, responsive to the walkthrough, and did everything I asked with no questions. Very professional, INCREDIBLY FAST! Responded within 5 minutes of my request and had people at my apartment in an hour! Incredible work, well worth everything paid. Did things I did not even know they covered - swept my back porch! I was amazed at the work that was done. For a 3 bedroom apartment, they finished quickly and hit all the spots. This is a 1970s apartment that feels clean and fresh. Thank you so much and I appreciate the responsiveness and professionalism.

Did an excellent job installing a new railing on my porch and installing a decorative fence. Worked late to get the job done and even drove me to 2 stores to find what we needed! Will definitely hire again and recommend.

My Design cleaned and painted the outside of my house, front porch and added new railings around the porch. They did a GREAT job on all. Cleaned up behind themselves and left things as they found them. My neighbors even had good things to say about their work ethic and the job they did on my house. I would highly recommend him for any job and will be using him again. Thanks

    Joe was very easy to work with, and was able to cross a number of things off my list! He fixed my front porch light, hung a number of pieces (art, mirrors, curtains) in my newly painted LR and DR, and be rebuilt and painted sections of my back porch that were rotting out. The porch is sturdy and looks wonderful.

          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.
