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!

I am extremely happy with the installation of my new fence (approx 475 ft). While on job I had them also rebuild stone wall and they did an amazing job. The transition from old wall to new is unnoticeable. I love their work so much they will now do my stone wall caps and rebuild my front porch entry.

I found Jaragua Home Services on Thumbtack and have been very happy with the work they have now done for me both residential and commercial projects. My husband and I hired them to do a gut renovation of 2 -1925 bathrooms in our condo-- not an easy task. We had plumbing to move, thick plaster walls, serious electric updates, and lots of tiling. Adelson and his crew were very helpful with ideas to make the bathrooms look and function more beautiully. His crew cleaned up daily, and midway he sent in a professional cleaning crew. We were able to live through the renovations even with one of the bathrooms being the master. We were so delighted with the service and results that we hired them to do pointing and brick work for us on a commercial building. I look forward to continuing to use his services for my third bathroom, and other projects.

Responded very quickly and offered a fair price for the job. They did a fantastic job repairing a punch list of items a contractor had failed to complete. Work included plastering and painting two ceilings around bathroom fans, fixing an issue with a wall in the bathroom, hanging a shelf in the laundry room, fixing a tile backsplash and recaulking it, as well as fixing a board hanging down on a porch. We were very pleased and would definitely use this team again! Highly recommend.

I was very lucky to find this handyman. He is very knowledgeable about all of the tasks that had to be done at our house. He worked on our deck, painting walls in the house, tiled the floor, renovated the bathroom, some electric work, etc. The list goes on. I was very satisfied with his quality of work and his thoroughness and diligence, so I ended up asking him to do more and more at our house. It also helped that his prices are very reasonable. He is also very responsible and prompt with responding to me. Whenever I had suggestions or concerns regarding any part of the renovations, he was happy to explain and consult. We were almost always satisfied with his suggestions regarding models, brands, etc. If we have another job, we will look for him again.

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.

Eduardo tore down the existing front porches on my two family home, and rebuilt them. Eduardo was extremely attentive to my need to get the work on my porches done before winter set in. He finished the work on time, and he was always responsive to my questions and concerns. The price quoted was fair, somewhere in the middle of other quotes I received from other contractors, but he didn't charge me more when there were some unexpected add-on costs, and I really appreciated that. The quality of the work is excellent, and I look forward to hiring him again on other large projects that I need done.

We hired Joe Speranza to repair and reinforce a large deck and build a step from the driveway to the porch. Joe and Frank did a wonderful job on the porch and made a great suggestion for the step, which came out beautiful! It really improves the curb appeal of our home and is not only functional but attractive. We would highly recommend them for any job. They were on time, kept us informed, did superior work, and cleaned up at the end of each work day. We had quotes that were cheaper but strongly felt Joe would provide us the best results, and he didn't disappoint! We will definitely contact him again as work comes up.

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!

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.

Russell is a one man show. Russell did a great job on my deck. We had a wood deck and converted to composite with pvc rails, and it came out great. Now I'm going to rehiring him again for a front storm door install. I see my self using Russell again on the future. Such a nice guy.

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.

I thought Brian and his team at Master Jerry did a great job. There was a small miss regarding a building permit, but, overall he gave us exactly what we wanted for a deck and even did it 2 days ahead of schedule. I highly recommend him for any deck / porch job and will be reaching out to him for some projects my wife and I are planning for 2019.

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.

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 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!!!!

As one does, or should rather, I met with several contractors before meeting Paul; and none of them quite matched Paul’s personality and easy-goingness. Paul and his crew, particularly Joe, worked diligently, respectfully, and smartly on our front deck. We used high-end products, in which Paul has much knowledge with, as well as having the courtesy to talk us through each step of the build. Supreme Home Improvement came in under budget, but by no means whatsoever does that equate to the work being inferior, not at all, as Paul completely and utterly transformed our pitiful outdoor deck to an oasis in our home, and all done with proficiency and astuteness. When conversing with Paul, his down-to-earth and honest character will shine through each and every time. For me, that was a true bonus. To add, I would most certainly hire Paul and his team again. Thank-you!

Jonathan did a fantastic job on building our 16 by 16 deck. He did this quickly despite hot humid weather and rain. His suggestions made the deck much better looking then a plain deck with no added cost, His workmanship is superb, his cuts are precise and everything fits perfectly. The stairs are perfect. In spite of a lot of little extras he never asked for more money and stuck to his quote. He showed up every day when he said he would and finished the deck when he said he would. He was very responsive, professional and very knowledgeable. We recommend his services.

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.
