Steve is a straight forward, honest, and effective carpenter. He cleans up, and he really tries to treat each project like he was working on his own home. Once he made a mistake that he could have covered up but instead he came clean and fixed the problem. That's a rare quality. I use him a lot and I enjoy working with him. The only issue to be aware of is he is frequently late to the job, but he is always willing to be fair and he makes sure I'm satisfied with the work and the hours he puts in. Hire him if you need handyman work done around the house.

Ernie was incredibly responsive and kind. We did run into some difficultly with one job in particular. Mainly a roof that had significant rotting which became apparent as the flashing got pulled away. Not only did we have rotting wood and insulation, Ernie discovered a large carpenter ant nest nestled in the roof along with all the rotting wood. Time will tell as to whether or not all of the issues were completely resolved however I do want to note Ernie's incredibly hard work and dedication to getting the job done. Danielle

I had the pleasure of meeting with Jeff Thompson and his crew who completed finished carpentry work in my historic home in Charlestown, MA. He began and completed the work as promised. Jeff has demonstrated his experience and skill level in his field. He set the bar high for all carpenters. I would definitely consider him for future projects. Thank you, Jeff.

BBC did an extensive kitchen renovation for us - a down to the bare walls re-build. They were very good as craftsmen and left the workspace clean every day when they left. They were very easy to work with. Coordinated all the subs well and completed on schedule. Fine work. We are pleased with the results and have no reservations about recommending Eduardo's services.

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

I couldn’t be happier with Wayne and his work on my house. He fully surpassed my expectations and also offered design suggestions that I didn’t think were possible. Wayne’s abilities are truly amazing! He is a true finish carpenter and artist. He works fast, is reliable, a great guy, and does super high-end work! I highly recommend 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.

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!!!

I found Michael to be a great and talented finish carpenter. We hired him to design and fabricate multiple display pieces for my business. He quickly made them to our specifications and even had a few design ideas of his own that helped us land a few big clients. I found him to be trustworthy, dependable and cost conscious which is rare in a contractor these days. We just started a small remodel project at my house and Michael is doing a great job. I found that he adheres to state building codes and builds his projects without cutting corners. I will defiantly hire him in the future as I have projects available.

This father-son time, Byron and his son Eric, helped me out in a time-crunch jam. They responded to my Thumbtack RFP within an hour of my posting it. They met with me at my home the very next day to go over the job in detail. They emailed me a bid promptly and stayed in communication with me about the job as it progressed. They did BEAUTIFUL work, both on detailed repair carpentry in several places on my home's exterior and completed the exterior paint job.

Project was simple enough (for a professional): remove old deck and rotten wood from both balconies from a third-floor condo and install composite everywhere! Greg made it very simple for us, asking questions and taking into account our requirements. He proposed several models and showed us a few samples to give us a better idea. Every step was taken with his professional opinion in mind. He actually made it very easy for us: by email, SMS, phone calls, there wasn't a day without a back and forth conversation and Greg always made himself available. Once decided, we didn't have to wait long to receive a quote which was really reasonable. It took a total of four days for his team (his brother was also part of it) to beat the rain and finish both decks on time. Result is fantastic! Greg really nailed it and my wife and I deeply thank him for the great outcome. He also scheduled a meeting with another person to have an awning installed (in progress). Soon enough, the whole family will be able to enjoy both decks for the rest of the summer, not feeling ashamed of the state of advanced decomposition in which they were before. Instead, we are now the proud owners of two beautiful balconies, thanks to him. Not to mention that they are now splinter-free, which makes it safer for our kids. I wouldn't question Greg's professionalism for one second. He stands by his work and asks for feedback, which demonstrates the seriousness of his business. Combine this quality with great communication skills, you have here the perfect guy for the job. By the way, the condo association is currently working on a plan to have him come over and fix our window frames and trims. Once you find your carpenter, you don't want to let him go, do you?

After several poor experiences with several carpenters hired over the years for projects needed to be done on our residence, we were fortunate enough to have found Chris. Not only is his work exceptional, he is professional , punctual and a hard worker. We worked together in designing built-ins around our fireplace. I was more than pleased with the finished product. He is extremely creative ! I would ( and have) recommended him to any needing a carpenter!

Cody is a very honest carpenter and stands by his contract despite a few unexpected issues he ran into at our house. He worked very hard to meet our expectations. He installed 2 exterior doors and 2 storm doors and we couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Josh replaced our French door with a new slider. He is a very talented, knowledgeable carpenter. He responded quickly to our request, and was very professionable and helpful with our research for the correct replacement door. He personally came to our house to meet with us, take measurements and explain his time frame and fees. He and his associate were very careful to protect our kitchen floor, furniture, and deck from damage during construction. The installation took one day but Josh came back the following morning to touch up the trim and make sure we were satisfied with his work. We won't hesitate to call him again for future home projects.

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.
