We originally met with Steve for an estimate to replace our roof, but before he came over for the first meeting a tree fell on our sunroom, and so we needed additional repairs associated with that damage. Steve came over and was very patient with my questions, gave me multiple estimates for a few different scopes of work, and was very willing to help me deal with the insurance process (though that turned out not to be necessary). Though his estimate wasn't the cheapest, his excellent customer service was above and beyond compared to the other roofing companies. Steve was always responsive to our questions and did a great job keeping us updated on schedule and progress as the project moved forward. The roof and sunroom now both look great! Overall I had a very positive experience with all of Stella Construction's employees and would definitely work with them again.

I needed to have my garage painted and cabinets installed. The guys showed up on time and were very friendly, knowledgable and courteous. Their work was impeccable and they showed genuine concern for perfection. I also had a tile backsplash installed and my driveway pressure cleaned and both also were done perfectly. I will use them again in the future for upcoming projects and my husband and I highly recommend this company. Homeowners in Sanford, Fl.

Jeff custom built a hutch for our kitchen in Franklin MA. Jeff immediately reached out to us and came to our home to better understand our needs and offer wonderful suggestions and referrals to additional work we were wanting to have done. The job was started quickly and during the customized build timeline, Jeff continued to keep us up to date and informed, properly setting expectations. This past week, the hutch was delivered/installed and our expectations were exceeded. It is a beautiful piece that has elevated our kitchen both in tactical space as well as strategic beauty. It was fun watching him as he ensured every detail was in it's place - he truly has job joy! He and his team are very friendly - a pleasure welcoming them into our home.

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.

Friendly, knowledgeable, thorough, and trustworthy. I had two L-shaped trellis planter to build (with many pieces), and Corey and Brian were awesome. I thought I could put them together, but when the boxes arrived I knew I needed a professional. As almost always, some parts were not there and did not fit together, but they solved the problems that came at them and got the job done very quickly and cleaned up all within 3 hours. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.

Mark Dubois's Custom Carpentry did an amazing job finishing our basement. Our new space includes a 3/4 bathroom, game room and workout area. Mark even designed and built custom built-ins, making the final product exceed our expectations. Mark was in constant communication, prompt, neat (always cleaned up before leaving) and did high quality work within our budget. We also hired Mark to replace two exterior doors and repair some cracked floor tiles. Highly recommend.

My experience with Troy was a great one! I hired Troy for some exterior staining that I needed done. Working with Troy was a pleasure. Contractors that are as courteous, professional, and efficient as him are a rarity! Troy showed up when he said he would, completed the project when he said he would, and charged me what he said he would. His price was exceptional - especially given the caliber of work that he performed! Troy restored an old garage, deck, and awning for me. They "POP" like new. He listened to my vision for the project - and delivered exactly what I wanted - it's PERFECT! As a professional plumber, I have been on many of Troy's bathroom remodel jobs. I must say that his jobs are extremely organized, timely, and of course - beautiful! I have seen many remodels by many different contractors, and I can confidently say that Troy is one of the best! I am very impressed with the quality of work that I've personally seen Troy deliver. I enthusiastically recommend Troy, as both a customer and a professional contractor. for any and all remodeling needs!

Mike did a great job on the demolition of the old lath/plaster ceilings in our rennovation. He was ready to start as soon as I had the permit and completed the job quickly. He completed the job on time and for the price he quoted. I am looking to use him for some other work during the rennovation.

Alex was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was one of the first contractors to reach out to me once I posted my job, and was always responsive and punctual. He met me out the same week I posted the job, gave me an estimate within a few days, and started the job the next week. He completely repainted the exterior of my two-family house, repaired the porch columns, rebuilt the stair railings and replaced one of the exterior doors. Even after he was all paid and the job was done, Alex realized the lock on the door wasn't working properly and made sure it was replaced and perfect before calling the job "done". That's the mark of a true professional! I will definitely be calling Alex in the future for any carpentry/painting needs.

I had several painters come and give me quotes, but I knew Sarah was the one as soon as I met her. She was delightful and friendly and didn't talk down to me. As a single female homeowner, trust me, that's not a given. She had great reviews and a Facebook page with loads of pictures of beautiful painting jobs. And her prices are an outstanding value! I had one huge room, basically double height with a loft, and I wanted an accent wall. It had paint with an awful textures finish that needed to be sanded down. I also wanted the trim and the railing on the stairs to the loft. So three colors, two stories, and a 15x25 bedroom with walls had n.

Jack General Services is an outstanding professional Company. All communication between myself and Jack went smoothly and letting me know what they would be working on that day. Everyone of Jack workers were extremely friendly and made sure everything was exactly how I wanted the decks done. Workers did a professional job fixing my decks, installing stair, painting trim and cleaning area when finished. Working with them was very easy. They were very careful and very professional, always on time. They are the most customer service-oriented contractors I have ever worked with! Their attention to detail is unmatched. As a first-time user of Thumbtack, it was a great experience. Jack was punctual and respectful. He completed the job better than I imagined. Jack General Services has a great crew and I enjoyed having them working on my Deck project. and I will definitely be using them for future projects! I would definitely recommend this company.

Chad and his colleague did a flawless job installing a new exterior door and building a custom frame and trim (door frame was not standard), on our 100 year old house. Their workmanship and professionalism from start to finish was top notch. We will absolutely hire them again and give them our highest recommendation!

I hired this company for a painting job for an apartment that we needed to put in good condition ASAP. They completely exceeded my expectations. I originally had doubts but they reassured me of their total dedication to customer satisfaction and they kept their word. Strongmen construction is made up of polite and lovely hardworking guys. Will highly recommend them. They will match your price and completion date, spot on. Will hire them again for a basement project pretty soon!

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.
