Mike responded within minutes of my initial request for handyman work. I needed carpentry repair work done on my front-door jam & latch. Mike came over the very next day, assessed the complete problem, and gave a reasonable quote. He returned soon thereafter and finished the work. Thoroughly pleased with this entire transaction.

Joe was prompt, courteous and did a quality job. I was able to get an appt. quickly without the run-around like you get with some other guys. His rates are also very fair and affordable. After several months of dealing with the unprofessional contractors from one of the home improvement big box stores, I reached out to Joe. He installed a custom vanity cabinet, sink top and faucet, which turned out beautifully. I would definitely call Joe again. Thank you so much!

Hector's expertise was extremely helpful when he first consulted with us about the job. He had great ideas that we would not have thought of on our own. We had some exposed aggregate decorative work done on our driveway and walkway to our front door. Hector suggested lights in the concrete along both and it looks incredible. Very happy with the results! Will be using his services again in the spring in the backyard!

Charles was professional and offered great customer service and worked in our home with excellence! I had a number of pictures/mirrors (some very heavy) to hang. He was accurate with measurements and showed much care and concern for the items being displayed! I will definitely hire him again! Found out while “art hanging” service was being rendered that he custom makes furniture! Can’t wait to use this company again! Thanks “SitOnIt”

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.

Jason and his staff helped me install a new mailbox, which involved some carpentry/sawing as well as good design for how it is supported. I needed this done in a hurry, and he completed the job the very next day form when I contacted him. He offered a fair price, he was professional, and I will definitely hire him again when I have more projects. Another good Thumbtack experience :)

Chris did a great job with our remodel. Very professional, he was careful to keep the other areas of the home as clean as possible while working. Detail oriented, he saw things that needed adjustment that I wouldn’t have even noticed. Took his time to make sure the job was done right.

We had Rogers come out multiple times to do small and large projects and were very pleased with his level of professionalism and attention to detail. One project in particular was a custom made indoor swing set for our child with special needs which was botched by a prior handyman; Rogers did a great job fixing it back up so that it was useful again. His quotes were reasonable and he came back out to fix problems promptly. He was also extremely pleasant to be around and got along well with all members of our extended family. We have an older home and anticipate bringing Rogers and his crew back out for more work on the property in the future. We give him our highest recommendation!

Alex was a breath of fresh air as far as dealing with contractors. Not one excuse ever left his mouth. He was on time both days of the job, worked 10 hours the first day. Drywall and mudding skills are top-notch. After painting, my 1973 drywall appears brand new. I would recommend him to everyone and will be calling on him for future projects. Class act!

    WOW!! We have had lots of painting done throughout the years. I can honestly say this company is one of the best we have EVER hired! Michael took his time, not rushing any aspect of the job. He sanded the walls down and smoothed them out making them look flawless. My kitchen has never looked this good! Great customer service, very easy to work with. Would 100% use this company again.

    MM3 has been an amazing carpenter to work with. We had him do trim work around our kitchen, mudroom and bath. Our home is very old; therefore nothing was straight or level. He did an exceptional job working with the “charm” and made things look as if things were straight. The trim looks fantastic. MM3 also came back a couple weeks after to finish our fireplace mantle. Again, we are very happy with the finished product. MM3 worked with our schedule, showed up to the jobs on time, and finished the jobs in respectable time. I would highly recommend MM3 for any finished carpenter work!

    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.
