Steve is an amazing carpenter with a creative eye and mindset. There doesn't seem to be much he couldn't do. We added picture moulding, closet shelving, hanging mirrors, tv mounts to our list. All done flawlessly

The carpenter arrived on time and did an outstanding job. He was knowledgable, professional, and focused. I would recommend this company. The floor looks great and the price was more than reasonable. Excellent job!

We're only halfway through our project with Garcia Handyman right now (we had to order the exterior door and it's taking a while to arrive). Levy came this morning to install the interior door and did a great job! It's an awkward spot in the house and the walls are very crooked, but Levy did his best to install the door properly and make it look good. We're really happy with the work so far, and hope to receive the other door soon, so that he can finish up the job. We'd be happy to hire Levy again for other future jobs, like house painting!

Look no further. Juan is one of the best painters I've ever met. From the beginning of my search Juan's work and professionalism stood out among the others. As soon as I saw Juans portfolio online, I knew he was the right one for me. He is more than a painter. He's a carpenter, a handyman, and so much more. After all, that's really what folks need in a good painter. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Juan was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. When he was running late for his appointment, he called to let me know. Once reviewing my project, he allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Juan is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. He finished his job ahead of schedule and completed other tasks I asked if he could do. I am very pleased with the final results. He painted the entire interior of my home and kept a keen eye for fine detail throughout. I highly recommend Juan and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a painter, you now know who to call.

Ted completed some drywall work for me along with painting. He was an awesome handyman! I was pleased by the way in which he addressed each of my concerns regarding the work and replaced furniture and fully cleaned up after he was finished. I would definitely recommend Ted and his team to family or friends. If you have contracted for work in this area (DC metro) then you know how it can be hit or miss...Ted will not disappoint.

Dennis is the first contractor I have worked with that actually called me back. He is very prompt and very professional. His crew was very respectful of my property and cleaned up the job site at the end of each day. Eugene is one of the best carpenters I have had the pleasure to work with and the deck he built for us is the envy of the neighborhood.

John does great work! He made two cabinets and a molding for our house that fit perfectly in the rooms. They look great and were completed when he said they would be. I highly recommend John as an excellent carpenter and cabinet maker.

I hired David to do drywall repair after a flood in basement. He gave a good estimate( very close to what insurance paid for). He arrived on time, kept me abreast of developments, and did an excellent job. He even came in on the 4th of July to repair a damaged corner of drywall. He is honest, trustworthy, and hardworking. He does the repairs himself, with an assistant. You can communicate your needs easily. I would definitely hire again.

I had a great experience with Joel from JLK Carpentry and my deck project. Initially, I had multiple people come out to my house and give me bids for a new deck. However, after speaking with JLK about various project elements, I was confident in their abilities to take on my new deck and signed a contract knowing that I hired the right contractor. JLK had given me a start date and started the deck project on time. An under the deck drainage system was also included in the project so I could enjoy a dry space underneath the deck on rainy summer days. The deck was constructed quickly with the under deck drainage system installed. He made a few suggestions throughout the project that really made a difference in the end. He installed a little gutter system for the deck drainage system which was the perfect finishing touch. The final product was a beautiful deck that had turned out nicer than I ever could have imagined. They tidied the area up before they left each day and made sure the area was neat and clean when they finished the project. Many of my neighbors have given me compliments about the deck, and it's easily the nicest deck in the neighborhood! I cannot wait to enjoy it this summer. Thanks JLK for making my Thumbtack project a great experience!

About

After 30 years of restoring historic sites and vintage boats, I am rebooting my focus to the needs of real homeowners. I can provide for any scope of work, from handyman needs to structural work. My specialty is in the restoration of historic homes, but I am a licensed general contractor, and I can do repair or remodel work. I also specialize in painting (Fine Paints of Europe, Kaufman colors, graining and marbleizing, and yacht painting) and custom cabinetry. I am definitely "old school," but completely up-to-date with codes, compliance and insurance requirements. I have my own cabinet shop in Kensington MD, and I will travel within a 200-mile radius.

About

I am a master carpenter and skilled electrician. I offer plumbing, drywall and flooring. I do roof installation and repair. I am an all-around handyman and well-rounded, people person. I offer great service for reasonable rates. Sampson Services is a strong business.

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.
