Mike was on time for both the quote as well as the scheduled work date. He was polite, friendly and helpful. We discussed the projects to be done this time as well as some possibly for the future. Rehang and repair backyard wooden gate and securely install hand railing for stairs.

Job well done on our custom built shed. Tom does quality work. I especially like the garden cabinet he built on the side of the shed.

Jim and Joe were both wonderful! They ended up installing a large ceiling fan as well as a new chandelier in our foyer (both 15'+ feet). They came to our house in the evening after normal business hours to see exactly what we need

Great service at a great price. Hector and his team went above and beyond the job by removing debris and grading the yard after the concrete walkway was installed. Work was completed quickly and Hector was quick to respond with a quote. Highly recommended.

I reached out to Charlie when remodeling my basement and he built me a beautiful oak bar. He met with me at my home and assessed the situation, got dimensions, and ended up building something I would have never thought of but it was perfect for the space. He had it completed in a week. It's super sturdy and gorgeous. I'm so happy with it.

We hired Kirk of Custom Creations to repair walls (after wallpaper removal), sand, prime and paint, including all doors ceilings and trim work. We are very satisfied with his work! Everything looks great. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again or recommend him to friends/family. Hard worker, quality work, quickly responds to calls, pleasant to have around and finished right on schedule.

They were very responsive in getting back to me about the work to be done, Asked questions and showed interest in doing the job. They showed up on time and were pleasant to deal with and worked hard in removing 2 arbor vitae trees that had fallen down during the winter. Roots gave them a bit of a hard time but they persisted and got them out. Very professional and very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Very happy with the job Jason did for me. Fixed both my wood fences in one day. Very easy to work, he is professional, polite and a pleasure to do business with. Honest and up front about cost and scheduling the job. A contractor that answers his phone and messages and wants to work! Will be having him back for more jobs.

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.

Nice experience, punctual and professional, him and his co-worker both did a good job cleaning up. Only if next time they will consider flower beds clean up not only the grass and leaves, then that would be great! He promised he will try to call next day to let me know if he can come back to complete that other part! I like them though and will definitely consider hiring them for the spring cleaning as well.

Mr. Stokes is an overworker. He went beyond my normal expectations of just doing a job to getting it done in half the time I expected and at an affordable price. Repairing a lopsided fence in my backyard was no easy task, but he was able to coe up with a solution that was perfect and saved me from having to buy new materials. In addition, having to remove a large juniper bush in the front of my house proved to be a huge undertaking because it had such large roots and was at the end of it's life cycle. He made quick work of it and cleaned up and filled in the hole. Excellent work on both jobs. Glad to have someone I can trust and count on to do a good job at a fair price! Highly recommend him!

We are very happy with the work that Bert did with our kitchen remodel project and would consider him again for future projects. Overall our kitchen remodel consisted of removal of old cabinetry, flooring, and demo of a closet. He was timely and cleaned up before he left for the day. He installed new cabinetry, tile flooring and a glass backsplash it all looks great!

    Scott did a great job in helping to turn our Warren rental property ( of which was returned in very rough shape ) into a clean wonderful home that showed very well once listed. His help with cleaning, painting, deck repairs, and haul-away was and is tremendously appreciated. His help with general recommendations and advice during the project was appreciated as well. Since I needed to work with a trustworthy contractor being remotely located 12 hours away in Atlanta his trust and value was immense. Scott is highly recommended!!

    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.
