Steve and his Green Guys crew did a fabulous job pressure and soft-washing our vinyl sided home, farmers porch and shed. They also cleaned our gutters, all with exceptional attention to detail! Steve was very courteous and quick to respond to our needs providing us with a quote while fitting us into his schedule in a very timely manner. Our home looks better than it ever has! I have already referred Green Guys to another customer and we will not hesitate to use Steve and his Green Guys crew again in the future. Great Job!

Very professional and knowledgeable. I chose Weathertite because I needed my gutters cleaned (3 years with no cleaning) and they also did some carpentry to fix a section of my porch that had rotted due to the gutters not draining. Rainwater now flows freely and porch is fixed. They also said they would be able to do a couple other small projects I need done as well.

Erik and Joe (?) did good work install my gutters and down spouts on my sun porch. They removed existing wood gutters and took them away. No surprises. Would definitely consider using them again for other services.

I feel lucky to have found Artem. He did a great job of replacing all of the railings on my 1st and 2nd story porches. He was very organized and neat. Each day my backyard was picked up and tidy. The quality of his work is great and his price was reasonable. I would hire him again, and would feel very comfortable recommending him to friends, family or neighbors.

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.

Eduard with BBC just finished our bathroom and I felt like writing a review. A lot of times, people only write reviews for bad service or work that was poorly done, so I thought I'd take the time to recognize some excellent work. I was beyond impressed with BBC. After we had a lot of trouble with another contractor doing other work in our house, we knew we had to find someone different for our bathroom. We had at least 4 different contractors come over to check out the job and give us quotes. BBC actually came in at the best price. On top of that, he really worked with us to get it within our budget and exactly what we wanted it to look like. With 2 kids and limited funds, his flexibility was MUCH appreciated. Not one of the other contractors was willing to work with us in that way. I figured that since he was so great budget-wise and with such a great personality, he'd be difficult once the work got started. I was definitely wrong! He was beyond professional and stayed on top of every subcontractor to make sure they got their work done on schedule--unheard of in the industry! He will answer his cell phone any and every time we called. Eduardo actually finished our bathroom on schedule, he also finished within budget. I would definitely hire him again, and hopefully we have a chance to. I hope you have the same experience that we had....Thanks Eduardo our new bathroom looks great! James Sampaio

We own a 1920's colonial. When we purchased the house the walls were original, in very bad condition and had not been painted in many years. Over the past 10+ years Troy has restored, repaired and painted the walls and woodwork in every room in the house. He takes pride in his workmanship and attention to detail. He's methodically patched holes, cracks & imperfections in our old walls. The time spent here was far more than the actual painting. His at times slightly higher estimates have always accurately reflected the hours spent prepping the surfaces. Last summer (2016) Troy acted as general contractor when we did a major remodel of our very large & in bad shape 4 season sun porch. Again, we were thrilled with the end result. He was available and responsive when an inevitable (but minor) miscommunication arose between myself and the electrician. He worked quickly to remedy the situation. The room was transformed to a comfortable space that my family enjoys everyday

Extremely friendly, flexible, fast and reliable. Daniel, Ely and their crew worked at lightning speed in cold weather on the front and back porches and siding of the house. Price went up as work was progressing, but remained reasonable and quality of work was in accordance. Good communication as work was progressing, and Daniel and Ely were also available after completion for one or two touch-ups.

My wife and I hired Heraldo to demolish an old covered back porch and replace it with an open deck, as well as a quick remodel of our existing front porch structure. We agreed on a VERY fair price. Heraldo agreed to start on a Friday morning. He arrived on time each of the 5 days that he worked at my house, was neat and clean in his work, meticulous to the smaller details, and responsive to any questions we had along the way. He is an extremely hard worker, working full days on both Saturday and Sunday, and had the whole project done and cleaned up by Tuesday afternoon. Just 5 days to completely do the whole project. Heraldo's work is top quality, and I would highly recommend him. If you are considering hiring him, he is a great choice.

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.

Woody was knowledgable about the work to be done. He provided options when possible and worked hard to keep the cost reasonable. His crew was great - friendly but business like. The project went smoothly, work was performed timely, and the finished product - a new porch - is perfect.

Me and my wife both was very happy after JJRR came to the house and plan with us the plans for our back yard patio and steps. They did a great job within a short amount of time. We was able to provide our input while they work and they were happy with that. We are going to hired them again for our front porch plans in the near future. The passion and love they put into their work is phenomenal. I would definitely recommend them!

Joseph is straightforward and diligent in his approach. He communicated well and kept us apprised of everything throughout. He has a talented crew of tradespeople and earned our trust such that we hired him for a second project to remodel our kitchen as soon as he was finished our first project of repairing our porch and roof from a fallen tree. Thank you, Joseph. Job(s) well done!

The results exceeded my expectations. I expanded the scope a bit by adding in my front porch to the deck porcine the and Wilter worked with me on the budget. He was very responsive. Brought color samples to help me select final color, repaired a broken board and removed items from porch with care. He seems to take pride in his work. Would hire again without reservation.

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.
