Steve has been helping us with some long-needed home repair work. He has re-screened our porch, replaced our corner boards on the home, cleaned out our gutters (up three stories in the back, and then hopped across the roof!!!), replaced the downspouts, replaced some clapboards, and is currently replacing sills and window trim on all of our windows. His work has been outstanding, and he is the nicest gentleman, always polite, knowledgable, and helpful with providing cost-saving pointers. I have already been recommending him to others, and am looking forward to having him back to do some interior work for us in the Fall.

I feel lucky to have found Artem. He did a great job of replacing all of the railings on my 1st and 2nd story porches. He was very organized and neat. Each day my backyard was picked up and tidy. The quality of his work is great and his price was reasonable. I would hire him again, and would feel very comfortable recommending him to friends, family or neighbors.

Cezar and Robson are extremely talented and hard working. They completed a master bath renovation and it turned out AWESOME! They started the job and continued everyday until it was finished. They do not juggle two or three jobs at a time which in my opinion is an asset. I enjoyed knowing that they were focused on my job from start to finish. They were punctual, polite, and hard working every day they worked. They are a rare find in this industry and I’m thankful for hiring them. Thank you Cezar and Robson for a job well done!!

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.

I hired Latham to cut a few holes in the walls for plumbers to find and fix a leaky pipe. In addition, he installed wall mounted shelving for me (RAKKS). He had never installed the Rakks system before but that wasn't a problem as the instructions were easy. The standards were level and aligned so I'm pretty happy with the work. I will hire again.

I am very pleased with Joseph and the work he did for me. My porch is now safe with a new footing and he gave me the back steps that I needed. He completed the job in three days. Everything was excellent. If you want a job done correctly, he is the man to do it. Roberta Bailey, Melrose, Ma.

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!

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 had a pleasure of hiring Russell for home floor repairing job (engineered hard wood). I would highly recommend Russell for such carpentry work. Based on this fantastic experience, I would consider him for other home repair/installation jobs (gutters, storm door, etc). I had a buckled (peaked) floor due to the seller/installer not leaving enough gaps at the edges to account for expansion of hard wood during summer. I had about 6 estimates, and by far, his pricing was the most reasonable. While most people charged per job, Russell quoted me an hourly rate. Some more reasonable than others. A few were flat out reluctant to do the job, due to its small size (maybe thought it was less profitable) despite the full day needed for its completion. By giving me a ridiculous quote (similar pricing to a new floor installation), they implied they didn't want to work. The job required removing the moldings from the impacted walls, removing all of tiles, then laying them again from the problematic area. He sticks to the quote and to his estimated time. He has a good pace and doesn't linger to buy time. Also, I found him to be very personable. The job was done to the utmost satisfaction. If you want an honest, hard working man to look after your home repair jobs, this would be the guy.

Extremely friendly, flexible, fast and reliable. Daniel, Ely and their crew worked at lightning speed in cold weather on the front and back porches and siding of the house. Price went up as work was progressing, but remained reasonable and quality of work was in accordance. Good communication as work was progressing, and Daniel and Ely were also available after completion for one or two touch-ups.

We hired Stan and his team to replace 9 tricky windows in our home and to replace our front porch deck that was in a state of disrepair. In all, the professionalism and quality was beyond expectation. The pricing was fair and the extra measures Stan and his team took was icing on the cake. Stan took the time to reach out to me outside of "office hours" to ensure I knew what was happening and provide insight to choices that needed to be made. We are already starting a list of projects we hope he can help us with in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Woody was knowledgable about the work to be done. He provided options when possible and worked hard to keep the cost reasonable. His crew was great - friendly but business like. The project went smoothly, work was performed timely, and the finished product - a new porch - is perfect.

Wilter did great work. Showed up when he said he would, was great at communicating via text and email, did exactly what he was hired to do, and seems like a genuinely really nice guy. I'd highly recommend him, and have already referred him to my sister. My deck looks awesome now!

My wife & I interviewed 14 general contractors for our complete home remodel project (3 new & expanded baths, new vaulted ceiling & tiled shower in master bath, new tray ceiling & barn door closet in master bed, new screened-in porch, new front porch & front door, new & expanded wall of colonial windows in living room, finished garage, siding repair). This is a big project & we wanted to make sure that we hired a GC that (1) is skilled, experienced & has a track record of high-quality work, (2) is trustworthy, ethical, communicates well, easy to work with, and, (3) charges a fair rate for his work. Ralph is a rare find and checks all of these boxes. You should always speak with as many contractors as possible in order to find the best match for your project, and, Ralph should absolutely be on that list. We are very impressed and very happy with Ralph, and, we HIGHLY recommend that you discuss your project with him before making a final decision. He's a hard-working, highly-skilled GC that does the right thing by his customers at a fair price.

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.
