Tony was prompt in contacting me for this job. He was on time when giving an estimate, which was the total for his work.No added on extras. The job was a big and difficult one in removing moss on the southern exposure of our three story house. He and his co worker worked for 6 straight hours. They left the siding and deck clean, with no damage. We would hire Tony again for other jobs.

I'm a huge fan of Angie's list but because of experiences like this one with Nilso I'm an even bigger Thumbtack fan now.We have a medium sized deck and stairwell in Boston that required stripping and staining. Nilso was very responsive and extremely professional. He reviewed stain types, colors and multiple variations for application. He recognized rotting wood under our deck the day he was starting the job and was able to secure same day finished carpentry assistance who repaired our sagging deck (and another deck)within 2 days. The price was on par with other bids but it's more Nilso's dedication to his client and skill/speed with a job that makes him a superior painting selection. We will never ask anyone but Nilso about our future painting/staining projects. We in fact have another house which requires exterior painting and already asked Nilso to put it on his calendar.

We needed to reduce the size of our deck in order to create additional parking for our tenants. It was great working with James and Kevin. They listened to our needs and we ended up with a beautiful redesigned deck. We're satisfied customers!! They are very knowledgeable and professional, and deliver quality work. We definitely recommend Weathertite Roofing and Remodeling when it comes to decks!

Rob and Rick were incredibly responsive and great to work with. They showed up when they said they would, completed the job on time, and went above and beyond the scope of work to do a quality job. They painted the outside of our house and decks - it looks great! We plan on using them again.

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.

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.

Stan and his team were initially hired to replace and install gutters. He was able to point out additional issues that did need to be addressed including a weakened upper deck, fascia boards, and a door thresh hold. He always provided a written estimate and kept in good communications regarding all work to be done. His team cleaned up daily, were courteous and helpful. As this is an older house built in 1865, it will always need some repairs, so I will likely have him do additional work in the future. Thanks Stan.

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.

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!!!!

We hired Ransford to put a deck on the back of our house. Ransford was a pleasure to work with. He met with us to initially get our thoughts on our project and immediately sketched up a rough view of the deck attached to the house and a detailed breakdown of the work that was needed including plans, inspections, materials and removal of old stairs. We made some modifications and drew up an agreement. We made one change to the project after we started which was to make the deck wider. Ransford was able to accomodate us and work with our surveyor and the town of Needham to amend the plans. He and his crew worked through some extremely hot days and built our deck quickly and professionally. We were thrilled with his attention to detail and how much work he put in to building a strong foundation and framing. He also made some suggestions on the layout of the pattern on the decking which we really appreciate. We love the deck. We would not hesitate to recommend Ransford to anyone who asks and we have already made plans to have him do other work on our house.

Shawn did excellent work. Every minute he was here he was working. He fixed multiple items in my house that I was just not able to do including re - stabilizing curtain rods, planning doors so they-moved smoothly, reattaching siding and fixing the gate to my deck, along with doing a full yard clean up! I highly recommend Shawn!

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.
