We cut down trees in our yard and wanted to keep a little something of the past with us now. We asked if Neil could trim down an oak log into a mantle for our fireplace. Neil gave us a great quote, was at our house the next day for pickup, did the project over the weekend (mind you, it was a holiday weekend) and dropped it off at our house when we were home. The project was done in a few days. So quick and great work. Very knowledgeable and responsive. Overall all, very pleased! Thanks

Weathertite replaced old wrought iron columns that were supporting our front porch with new, updated pine columns. They also repaired the roof for us. James came out to our house quickly to give us an estimate, and he was always very responsive to my messages. He was knowledgeable, honest and hard working throughout the process - just an overall good guy. He truly cared about making sure we were happy. I love our remodeled entryway and the work they completed. I'm glad we went with James and his crew!

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.

Highly recommended! He is very professional and knows and does just about anything. Before selling the house, we hired him to replace many ceiling lights, outdoor lights, kitchen faucets, door casing or trim, bathroom mirrors and lights ... etc.. He does not waste time talking or even take a little break, always going from one project to another. Great workmanship. Price is very reasonable. Money well worth spent! Thanks much, David!

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.

The job consisted of an outdoor composite railing on cement landing and stairs and an indoor railing in sunroom. Mr. Speranza was excellent...he was on time, he had helpful tips as to what to do and use, he cleaned up well.

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!

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.

I had a bunch of contractors give me quotes and I chose Handy and Some (Sean) because I felt he was upfront and honest about what the cost and length of time would be. He was on time and gave me many choices that I could have for my deck. I felt he wasn't trying to sell me on anything. With his help, I went with composite decking. Had him relocate the stairs and add lattice. The other contractors, some being more expensive were late to the appointment, couldn't start till next year, didn't give me many options on what type of decking I could have or didn't show up to give me a quote. Sean actually went beyond what we agreed on and with no cost added, gave me a beautiful deck. He also redid the front porch for me. He told me it would take 2-3 weeks to complete and true to his word, it was completed. I plan to hire him again for future projects. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend him to anyone looking for contractor. I added before and after photos.

We had water going behind our siding since the house was built and rotted out a exterior wall and leaking from above my electrical box. Construction Tech came right out, fit us into their schedule and got the job done quickly before we got more rain and within budget. Thanks construction tech!!!

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.

I hired V.E.S Developments to replace the wooden fence I have in my backyard as it was getting old and needed to be updated. I called and got a quote within minutes and decided to go through with it. My backyard looks like it got a major upgrade just by the new fence they put it. Very friendly and professional. I will definitely give them another call when something comes up.

I LOVED working with TruBlue! I was moving back into a house I had owned for 36 years but had worked out of state for the past 20 years. So the house was rented. When I saw the condition of my house (inside and out) and my once lovely yard I cried. I had received a card from TruBlue so I picked up the phone and called James Puopolo. James came to the house on a Saturday. (I don't think the crying had anything to do with it!) We discussed what needed to be done and the timeframe I needed to have certain things completed so I could move back in. In a few days, I received an estimate of the work to be done. It was estimated in phases so if necessary I could do the work in sections as my finances allowed. I felt that the estimate was very reasonable and signed on with a much lighter heart! James not only accommodated me, checked in to ensure me that the job was progressing, but also called me to let me know what was going on as I was still out of state. When the first phase was done, I flew back in to see if in fact it was in a state where my moving in was possible. Everything was perfect. I was delighted and could see that my house was on the way to being mine again. As pleased as I am my interaction with James, I am equally impress with his workers. They were wonderful! The work done was impeccable, done in a timely manner, and I often felt that hey were more of a perfectionist than I. Their work areas were cleaned and their tools put away every day...nothing was left out to cause any inconvenience to me. I trusted them with a key and the second garage door opener. The house is in the last Stage/Phase and will probably get done early in early spring. I know I will miss them when they are gone. The TruBlue team with which I have worked should be rated well above a 10 out of 10! Thank you TruBlue

Drew did exactly what he said he would do in terms of budget, time and the finished product. Our portico came out beautiful! They spent extra time on the small details that many people wouldn't have noticed. Even my husband was impressed, and that's saying a lot! I would highly recommend Drew and his crew.

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.
