I'll start off by saying I would definitely hire Gray's Outdoor Services again. A pleasure to work with - dependable, trustworthy, polite and communication was a breeze. The project ran smoothly and ended up only taking a day to complete. We are so happy with our new front porch and walkway. I would highly recommend Tom and his team for your next outdoor project! A+ Thanks again guys !

My bathroom lights and front porch light were not working. Tom and I scheduled a time for him to come over. Tom was not only prompt, but a few minutes early, and worked very efficiently. He was polite and clean and he was quickly able to assess both lighting situations and take care of them at the same time. I also had him replace a blind and spoke to him about future projects I would like to have done. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom!

My brick steps were crumbling on my front porch due to water seeping behind the brick. Joe responded to me within an hour of posting the job on thumbtack. I sent a photo of the steps and he gave me an estimate. He came out the next day to look at the job. We scheduled the work to be done that Saturday. He was prompt and completed the job within a few hours. He hauled away all the debris and left the site clean. We are very satisfied with the results and will definitely use him again.

This contractor removed rotten wood from around my porch, stopped an active leak into my basement, replaced water damaged wood inside the basement, and replaced wood around the porch with water resistant boards. The job was completed thoroughly and professionally in 3 days. Efficient, professional, knowledgeable, experienced, and hard-working.

We enjoyed having Kent and Betsy install doorwall and build our porch. Everything looks great. Kent makes sure he gets it right. One thing that I really liked about Kent he listened to us and helped build what we had in mind. While most other contractors that came out showed me how they would build it. And would completely dismiss our ideas as bad. Kent made it happen and it turned out even better than we had invisioned.

Mr. Morris completed 4 jobs for me covering a three month period. 1) Involved rennovating my enclosed back porch by putting in a ceiling, removed/replaced surrounding screens & door, removed/repaired wood frames, installed electric wiring & put in a ceiling fan/light for first time, painting of woodframes, sealing bottom base bricks, and fixing gutters. Excellent job. 2) Installed gutters on garage for rain off, re-roofed garage & installed ventilation at top of roof. Well done! 3) Installed gutter brackets, repaired damage wood, repaired & fixed front house gutters for rain off. 4) Re-balancing of garage beams and adjusted tracks of garage door to prevent jamming or inconsistency of door opening or closing. All jobs were pre-appraised, with an estimate delivered within several days. Mr. Morris was very professional , detailed & courteous in explaining each job, cost, and timeframes. He exceeded all my expectations, in quality, timeliness, & proficiency, completing each job ahead of schedule. He cleaned up each area after completion of job very well. Partial monies paid up front and balance of bill not due until I did a walk thru & stated satisfaction of work done. I have told Mr. Morris that I will be retaining his phone number in my directory for future home repairs and have no concerns about referring him to my neighbors because of his professionalism and the quality of his work.

I live in NC and my Mother lives in Monroe,MI. My Mother lives in an old house and desperately needed porch repair work done. I had tried to find someone to do the work to no avail. I found J&M Construction through Thumbtack. I got a quick response to my initial inquiry. He went to my Mother's and gave me a free and very reasonable estimate. As I live out of state I sent a deposit and once they received it he started wok. They kept me informed of progress all along the way. They were punctual and finished the job ahead of schedule. Everything was done very professionally and my Mother loves her new porches! They even sent me a picture for the finished job. I would highly recommend this company and if I could give them 10 stars they deserve it!!!

We wanted to extend our back porch to create an outdoor living space. This meant extending the roof 16 feet and matching the width of the existing roof of 33 feet. The work is in progress and we are very pleased. The workmanship is outstanding and is progressing well. Mr. Stinnett is always on time, cleans up the jobsite each afternoon and stacks material for the next day's use. I would highly recommend Jimmy and crew to any of my friends. As a matter of fact, my plumber, who is a personal friend is working on site, commented, " you found a hell of a carpenter in Jimmy."

I would like to start by saying I would recommend Extreme Masonry to friends and family. They were very responsive and provided a quality product for a reasonable price. These guys were here on time, and worked in a timely manner. It started to rain, and they kept working. Our porch was completed in 2 hours with no complaints. They did an excellent job and I would recommend them to others.

I really enjoyed working with Exterior Qualities Home Improvement. They built a wrap around covered porch on my house, and they also did some interior wall removal work on my home. I was impressed with the professionalism of the sales person, Mike. I also was impressed they delivered my quote when they said they would. We were impressed with the quality of the work. Gary and his team of workers were polite, respectful, and worked cleanly. I would recommend this company to others. (The photo is after the walls were removed between my living room and kitchen).

    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.
