Jeff was able to fit me into his busy schedule. I needed a kitchen cabinet removed to accommodate a new refrigerator. He removed the cabinet and hung it in another spot, as well as made repairs to the wall caused by the original builder. He also replaced rotted trim wood around exterior window. He does excellent quality work at a good value, he is punctual and calls ahead. I am looking for more jobs for him to do.

I hired Filipe because I know my way around with tools but I run restaurants. I knew what I wanted and specifically measured everything. He sent pictures of what he'd done like it. Told me a price to do the same, had it done the next morning and stuck to the price quoted! His work was spot on! Use him without question. He's an honest, quick and experienced carpenter.

I used thumbtack to help my client find a carpenter for custom window shutters to made from reclaimed wood to match existing shutters in another room of their house. Jeff not only responded quickly, with great detail, he completed the job fast and exactly as my client and I had hoped. He stained the shutters and used hardware that matched the existing shutters perfectly. Because of Jeff's skilled, professional and timely creation and installation, my clients are thrilled and I look like a superstar for recommending him. Thank you Jeff for a job well done!

Eduardo was very responsive from the beginning. I posted my job on Thumbtack just to get an idea what my costs would be. I hadn't even decided if I would build it yet. Several vendors responded but in addition to responding, Eduardo wanted to come over, see the place, and make sure he was helping me through the initial decision making.. This was very helpful to me and helped me sort through the various quotes I got. Any questions I had he responded. And just talking too him, he exuded an air of confidence that inspired trust. I was not disappointed.. After successful HOA approval, city design review and permit approval (no easy feat.. took over a month for city to schedule us in), Eduardo showed up with his carpenter, Claudio, who would be the expert carpenter he found to execute. Claudio was amazing. He immediately attacked the job with a professionalism and passion I have never seen in construction. The pergola is in Ipe wood.. The hardest wood there is. Claudio loves to work with wood and although Ipe can be difficult to work with he is able to handle it with no problems. Eduardo was in communication every step of the way. In fact I went on vacation and got weekly updates with pictures. During the process Claudio had many ideas how to make it better than the original. Eduardo supported this process and allowed Claudio to do his very best. The end result speaks for itself. I've had several friends come over and admire their work and some of them will most likely hire Eduardo for their next project. Finally, once final inspection was done, Eduardo explained to me that due to his desire to do the job right, he didn't make as much as he anticipated but he wanted to be clear that even so he stood by his original estimate. This is a fantastic general contractor to work with in my opinion. Rarely is construction delivered better than you anticipate.

Jeff Marrazzo of All-Star Remodeling and Painting beautifully re-finished for us a very large back hall with enormous built-in cabinets. He repaired the ceiling, covered the walls with new paneling and painted all. The area is now transformed! He is a very fine carpenter and painter. He is meticulous about his work yet very efficient and very neat. Also, he's a very personable, clean-cut man who was very easy to have around the house. I learned he has many skills. We will happily engage him again when we have various future needs. (He really liked our indoor Burmese cat and was very careful not to let her outside, as he was in out so often cutting panelling in the driveway.) Maureen O'Halloran, Newton Center

We are beyond thrilled that we chose Mark to finish our basement. His quote was fair and he delivered on what we agreed on in the contract. He was punctual, professional, and in constant communication with us. His crew was also phenomenal and we were pleased with their quality of work. We would highly recommend Mark to anyone who needs a dependable carpenter.

You can't purchase this quality in stores. Wayne is a master finish Carpenter, and his work proves it. We had a custom entertainment center built at a very reasonable price. Wayne goes above and beyond what he charges for. You see it in his work. It has to be perfect, and he won't stop until it is. Don't spend money shopping for pre-fabricated wood online, you'll regret you did. Build it once, build it with Wayne.

This is the first time I hired a carpenter for breaking two closets and making a opening between kitchen and living room (it is a baring wall) He is easy to communicate. Came, check and gave quote. from next day they started work and finished within 2 days. Before left they cleaned everything properly and also put some salt on my stairs. My wife and I was amazed. Thanks I got them. I am planning to do some other carpentry works.

Sean and Kaitlin showed up on time and quickly got right to work clearing out a foot of snow from my super narrow/annoying driveway and my front and back porch and walks. They were quick, courteous and professional and really did a fantastic job for what I consider a fair price. As I'm still recovering from a lower back injury, I was worried I wouldn't be able to take care of this all myself so I'm super thankful to have had the help. Have a ton of other odds and ends things to do around the house and Brophy Builders will be my first call for that and any other snow removal needs! Thanks guys!

We met Barry through Thumbtack and have now been using him as our "Go To" Master Carpenter for all our needs, including construction of a mud room cabinet and downstairs shelves. Barry provides superb work and such a delight with whom to work. A 12/10 in our book!!

Alex was the utmost professional. He promptly responded to our post, came quickly to our house to give us an estimate, and the estimate was very reasonable. He put up crown moulding and painted the trim and walls of our bedroom. He is not a master carpenter, but we didn’t expect that nor were we paying for that level of craftsmanship. He painted our bedroom perfectly and protected our floors and furniture thoroughly. Most importantly he was reliable, honest, and a genuinely nice person. We would hire him again for painting without hesitation.

I was able to book with them quickly and communicate with them at any time of day. They come over much sooner than I thought any company would be able to start my project. They worked throughout the day (not just half days) until my project was done. They even offered to help fix the wood that they were painting so that everything would be even which we really appreciated not having to get a carpenter involved as well. Their estimate came in less than the other painters. When they finished, they didn't add anything to it. I would work with them again if the need ever arises! i'm very happy with their work!!!

My husband and I purchased a new-to-us home this past November and the to-do wish list is a mile long. Our first big-ish project was having stairs built to an already existing deck. Xavier was wonderful to work with, he was very responsive to any questions, was on the job daily, and the stairs far exceeded my expectations. We look forward to working with Xcc Pro-Builders for our future projects.

I am VERY HAPPY I hired jjrr to rebuild/extend my deck. I had just moved a little over a year ago, and what looked like a "decent" deck concept, was actually not very functional. The prior owners attempted to connect the side deck with the back deck using just boards pieced together to make one large wrap around deck. I really just wanted that part rebuilt since the wood was fairly new looking (it still had sticker price tags) and the side and back decks seemed ok. I received quite a few quotes, and builders telling me they could not use any of the existing wood and/or they wanted to knock down my entire deck and start over since it would not "match"...I was feeling discouraged because I knew some of the wood, if not all could be reused/repurposed. Then, thankfully, jjrr said they could not only reuse the wood, but they understood exactly what I was asking which allowed me to save money on supplies. They came out after we had a snow storm to look at the project, and were able to start the following week. They worked all day in the cold wind and even worked past sundown using a spot light. I thought I wouldn't be able to get this project done until late spring and here it is the first week of March and the project is complete. Impressed is an understatement. I plan on hiring these guys again to re-do my front steps in the near future. Thank you!!!!

Steve is not only a skilled carpenter - he is a talented artist. I had a very difficult cabinetry job to do because this job had been botched up by another carpenter. Steve did an amazing job and I was personally impressed by his incredible skill level and his dedication to perfection. I would highly recommend him and would definitely use him again. Thank you, Steve!

Byron and his crew were terrific! We had a very old garage with a lot of termite and carpenter ant damage. They were able to remove and rebuild all the problem areas, and they made the two small door openings into one large one. They got the job done quickly and professionally. I couldn't have asked for anything more. They were just fabulous.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
