Durfee and Sons came over to my house to help me with a roof issue. Ernie and his partner arrived on time and got to work right away. They had no issue getting up on a fairly tall roof. You won't have any issues hiring these guys. They were super nice and easy to communicate with.

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

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.

We are beyond thrilled that we chose Mark to finish our basement. His quote was fair and he delivered on what we agreed on in the contract. He was punctual, professional, and in constant communication with us. His crew was also phenomenal and we were pleased with their quality of work. We would highly recommend Mark to anyone who needs a dependable carpenter.

We had somewhat of a unique project in mind - custom built-in bunkbeds for my soon-to-be 5 year old's room. Not only did Bob provide us with the best quote for the project, but he came over the same week to confirm the quote in person. He was on-time, professional and incredibly thorough, completing our project under time and within budget. In addition, he was able to replicate the inspiration photo I had provided him exactly as it appeared and created the most amazing set of top quality custom bunkbeds in time for my son to have for his birthday. We would highly recommend Bob to anyone who needs a talented, and honest, finished carpenter. Thanks Bob!

Thu 8:49 AM Jeff was the first to respond to my request on Thumbtack for a carpenter in the Rockport MA area. He was easy to communicate with and was prompt in any meeting time or email communications we needed. The estimate was clear and we felt reasonable. The work, wood rot replacement, & patio paver repair looks great. I will hire him again to work at my house.

We needed to have a small job done in our office during working hours. It was great to have Cliff and his staff here with us. They were respectful of our work environment, always let us know when they were coming and going, and gave us clear expectations. The workmanship was professional. My boss was so pleased he's in the process of hiring The Carpenters for another improvement project.

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.

Alex is a gifted craftsman, with wonderful communication skills, and is extremely trustworthy. Recently, I had Alex install a window, and it wasn't a basic installation; there was a tremendous amount of rot, which I didn't know about, and crumbling brick. Alex worked diligently to complete the job, and the end product was exceptional. After seeing how the window turned out, I hired Alex to frame my bathroom and kitchen. Alex continues to demonstrate the attributes of a knowledgeable and reliable carpenter; truly a pleasure to work with.

    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.

    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.

    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.
