Hired a contractor a few years ago to build a deck and he totally cut corners and Mickey moused the job. I'm selling my home and when inspected the deck was found to be a serious danger. John answered my request the day I put it in, as did a few other contractors. I needed this done ASAP. It was not an easy job but he gave me ideas on how he could fix the mess and told me he would give me an estimate and could begin immediately. The other contractors seemed to be overwhelmed at how they could repair the deck but said they would send an estimate anyway. One came back saying he couldn't see how it could be done without total destruction and reconstruction. Another told me it would take no less than a week with a couple guys and I would lose some footage on the deck. His estimate was also more than double johns estimate. John got this job done in about 3.5 days. My deck looks better than it ever has. He treated me with respect, courtesy, and was extremely professional. He even cleaned up after he was done ( I've always had to clean up after other contractors). If you want honesty, professionalism, and respect, John Phair is who you need. You will not be disappointed. I've hired many contractors in the past. I've always been made to wait, found the job was done wrong but the guy disappeared, was lied to, and my last guy before John never finished the job because he ended up in jail for arson and his wife is harassing me to pay for the entire job. Finally ONE GUY that made me feel like I actually mattered as a client!

Pat did an excellent job on removing a deck and another staircase I had. Once the deck was removed, it was obvious that the wood near the house was rotten, and Pat advised me to replace that as well. He also shored up the roof near the back of my house, where one of the new cement staircases was going to be. In addition, Pat relocated my dryer vent in my basement, since the new stairs that are going to be installed near my sliding window would have covered up the vent where it currently was located. Overall, Pat did an excellent job on all of the work that he did at my home. Not only did he do the work that I originally hired him for, but he was very willing and able to do the other projects that came along in the process. Something that was supposed to be a one day job, turned into a two day job, and Pat got everything done for me. I was very satisfied with his work and would highly recommend him.

Karl and his assistants were not only extremely professional, they were pleasant to talk to, neat and clean, informative, made suggestions that saved me money, ontime, and even repaired things other idiots that i had hired screwed up. i would hire him back in a heartbeat and i highly recommend this company for ALL of your repair, construction, and painting needs. you will NOT be disappointed. i hired them not only to paint, but to repair destroyed concrete steps, a path, replace a window and some siding. he replaced all rotted trim and missing shakes for nothing and when he saw that the "professionally built deck" was TOTALLY screwed up he made suggestions and offered to fix that screw up as well. i will hire him to place carpet when i'm at that point.

Bruce Montville is a true craftsman. He demonstrated expert skills not often seen these days. He carefully planned the deck renovation and then built it with extensive attention to detail. This is a mahogany deck so the wood is extremely hard and required special screws, sealers, and overall handling. He went so far as to special order recessed hinges and handles for a trap door so that the door would be easily accessible yet not detracting from the appearance of the deck. The deck is absolutely beautiful. Friends and family have repeatedly complimented us on the deck and asked for the name of the craftsman who did the work. I highly recommend Bruce Montville and I will use him for my next project!

Tom and Pernell did an awesome and fast job staining my deck and porches. We had so much rain this spring, so when we finally had a small window of opportunity, they were all over it. Since we were delayed on the staining, I had them power wash the house, which we had planned to do in the fall. Again, they were fast but did a great job. Super nice guys too! I highly recommend them and I'm already thinking about future projects for them.

They were prompt, polite and efficient. It took just over a week and a half for repairs to a roof, full house painting, a front porch and a back deck to be painted. Very nice group of guys. They were friendly to my animals, as well, which was important. Would highly recommend.

I have a modified Cape Cod style home and asked JWD Painting to paint the outside of my home and a wrap around deck. They put two coats of paint on everything and they did it well. They worked quickly, professionally and cleaned up after themselves daily. The price was agreed on and there were no surprises. I recommend them to anyone who wants a professional job done at a very good price!

I can't say enough great things about Keith. He is truly a valuable asset to have to maintain your home. As a new owner of a home, Keith has done days of work for me, from: floor work, carpentry for my deck, installed a faucet, new bathroom mirror and lighting install, installed TVs, etc ..the list goes on. He arrives promptly at 7am with materials in hand to start work. He consistently goes above and beyond to ensure quality work. I appreciate his attention to detail, a well as, pointing out things that I would have never caught that need to be addressed. He is absolutely my "go to" person that I entrust my house maintenance too.

From the time we decided to move forward with KD, our supplies for our fence were ordered the next day, and installation was started and almost completed the day after. Even the owner was out in the cold, rain with his fellow colleagues putting up our fence. Greg was fantastic and very kind. He came out the very day I reached out to him and he took the measurements we needed. They worked within our budget and were upfront with us every step of the way. We will definitely be using them for our decking and landscaping needs in the spring.

The overall quality of the team and their work. They came when they said they would, worked with us on any questions/concerns that came up, and before leaving for the day Kevin would come and get my husband to go over the days work. The time frame they gave us for the project (roof over existing deck ) was right on the money with the only delay being one day of rain. Also our code enforcement officer, who had never worked with Kevin, was impressed with the work. The team was was courteous and polite and at the end of the project the area was so clean that if it wasn't for the new roof you couldn't tell they were there. I would highly recommend Kev and Sons Construction! !

My wife and I cannot tell you are fortunate we were back in 1995 when we first contacted Dick Hansen to do some work for us after arriving in Warner, NH. We just acquired some older property and had some small things that needed repair. Did not matter to Dick how small the job, he came right away and got the work done. From that day forward we knew we found someone we felt very comfortable with and more importantly, a truly honest man. We had Dick restore some cottages that were built in the mid 1800’s that were going to be part of a B&B we would eventually operate. When he was done you would have thought they were built brand new. The amazing part was he did all the work himself. No large crew or pieces of equipment. A truly talented craftsman. When you meet Dick and work with him he makes you feel confident that your expectations will be met and beyond. A very rare breed these days. Very hard working and talented craftsman. We later moved to our new location in Deerfield and hired Dick. This time he had his son Gary. Definitely, father like son. They came to basically gut and refurbish the entire first floor of our newly acquired house. Renovations included brand new kitchen, remodeling of two bathrooms (tiling walls and floors), laying new hardwood flooring in the entire house. Again, just the two of them and they finished the entire job in just under two months. The work and craftsmanship are second to none. We continuously get positive comments from family and friends on how beautiful everything looks. Just recently, in 2012, they installed an 800 square foot composite deck in our backyard. From the framing to the decking to the rails, just a beautiful piece of work right out of a showroom magazine. After all these years (going on 20) I can honestly say that Dick and his son Gary are not only hard working and honest folks, but are great craftsmen as well. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any type of restoration or carpentry work that you have. You will have that piece of mind that everything will turn out the way you want and exceed your expectations. A very satisfied customer and FRIEND, Walt and Deb Bury Deerfield, NH

    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.
