I absolutely recommend Shane without hesitation. He arrived early, finished two entire houses and their decks in three hours, and was incredibly professional and meticulous. Our buildings look great and I'm so happy with his service. His communication is lightning-fast through Thumbtack, and he even sent me a follow-up email after leaving to remind me that we should remember to move our patio furniture back to the decks so no one takes the set. Finally, his price was incredibly fair and undercut the next lowest bidder by $175. We will definitely use him again!

Tony was a pleasure to work with! He is responsive, personable, and completed my gutter clean out with care! I contacted him on a Sunday, had an estimate on Monday, and the job completed on Tuesday. WOW! If only everything worked like this! He is great! I plan on using him next spring for a Powerwash and deck staining project. Rick from Dedham

I would hire Nilso again for a variety of jobs; certainly to refinish our deck when the time comes again, but, for other home needs as well. He communication throughout our project was excellent and the results were fantastic. He and his team was respectful and professional - job well done.

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.

I was looking for someone to do the interior painting of my dining room and I asked Adelson if they do decks and he said yes. So I hired him to get my new deck done because he gave me a fair price. Adelson and his team just finished my new deck and they did a great job. The crew was very professional working in cold temperatures here in the north east in December. I am also hiring Adelson for the painting.

We were lucky to find David through thumbtack. In less than two days, he took down an old porch and rebuilt and finished the remaining part of our deck off the house for a reasonable price and took away the debris from the old porch. He was very professional, friendly and did a great job on the porch. Very happy we chose him for the job and I highy recommend him. Will definitely hire him again to do work in the future!!

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!

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.

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 hired HD construction to repair my deck and install trim and lattice around the perimeter. Heraldo was extremely responsive and was able to schedule me in shortly after he reviewed and quoted the job. The overall result was great and I was very happy with the work. I would definitely recommend HD construction and would hire again for future projects.

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.

I have been a customer of Ken at Rainstone since 2015. And this past month a new job had us moving out of state. Ken was able to give our home his 100% attention, our wood floors repaired & refinished, broken wood replaced and matched to perfection. Our decks, walls, floors... our whole house is move in ready, thanks to the quality of work he and his employees deliver.

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!!!!

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.
