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.

They did a fantastic job -- we had a 4+ hour project and they worked diligently the entire time. Big driveway, sidewalk, back deck and front porch all power washed. They moved furniture off all the areas and then put it all back afterward. Excellent work -- they are very conscientious..... and I am a perfectionist! We would definitely hire them again.

Jeremy did a great job and worked tirelessly despite the unexpected challenge of having to break up a 2000lb chunk of concrete from a porch/sidewalk removal/reinstall. Overall job was very good. Would recommend Jeremy.

We hired Gar to do a couple small projects for us (patch up areas of our basement, install/paint new baseboards in our bathroom). He did such a fantastic job we decided to hire him to turn our screened in porch into a 4 season porch. We have a 100 year old house so it was important that it match the rest of the house. Everyone else we spoke to said it wasn't possible or quoted us outrageous prices. Gar was eager and excited to work with us and had great ideas. He did a fantastic job, stayed within our budget, kept us updated on how the project was progressing and was so easy to work with. I would highly recommend him for any home projects you have!

I was looking for someone that not only could replace my roof, but figure out how to cover my back deck. Al Esser came up with the best idea and I love it. Al had an excellent crew and he continually kept in contact to make sure everything was done to my satisfaction. I highly recommend.

Garbor Group built my deck in April 2015 in Novi. They removed an existing rotted cedar deck and replace it with pressure treated wood deck. The job took less than a week (allowing for spring weather). The finished deck is beautiful and well constructed. The crew was impressive in their craftsmanship, quality to detail and very pleasant to have around. The crew showed up when scheduled, cleaned up at the end of each day, listed to our ideas and incorporated some minor changes we wanted. We couldn't be move pleased with the deck and the project in total! I would highly recommend George Rogers and The Garbor group for your home improvement project.

Wouldn't trust anyone else to do renovations to our home! Zack has done so much for us, from moving a set of double doors to the other side of our kitchen, re-siding our house, building a set of bunk beds, and building our new deck! He is the best!

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."

When Nick built my screened in porch, there were so many people driving by & walking that stopped to look & ask who he worked for. I love that porch, so I ask him to build a deck out back. It is perfect. Now he is going to remodel my kitchen. His crew was nice & cleaned up after themselves. He is very good at what he does.

    LaGuire Custom Services built a beautiful deck for us. He removed the old deck and dealt with the problems found under it! All along he advised us as to the best way to build the deck so that in the near future we could convert it to a sunroom. We love his suggestions and are thrilled with the results!

    Ray built a large new Azek deck coming off the back of our house for us. We are very happy with it and it's absolutely stunning. A+ pro. He will be building our barn this summer.

    Stairs w/landing coming off our screened in porch were done perfectly!! Can't wait to have John return to do the deck. Excellent experience.

    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.
