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.

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.

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”

Custom creations did a great job. We are very happy with how the house turned out. They consistently came to work when they said they would, and they finished the house earlier than expected. The family, including the dog, had no problem with them being in the house. They were gentlemen, hard working and cared about the end product. We plan to hire them again and would recommend.

Harry rebuilt my multi-level staircase with oak newel posts and handrails with wrought iron balusters. He posted a picture of the finished job on his Thumbtack profile page if you want to take a look. Harry is an excellent craftsmen and gets the job done as promised. You won't find a better custom carpenter.

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 :)

I hired Vini and his team to completely re-do the pillars on the outside of my house. Vini was professional, on-time and even made a suggestion on the paint color that made a huge difference in assisting to create the overall modern update to my house I was looking for. Many of the neighbors commented on how the house was completely transformed based on the custom woodwork that was performed on the pillars at my house. I would highly recommend Vini and his team for all future jobs that involve any type of custom woodworking or finish carpentry work.

When we had some bad storms here in Detroit, MI the only company that had time to call me back was Disaster MD and they were very professional. I was very pleased with their work, our basement was flooded with at least an inch of water!

George, Mark and crew were great to work with. Our trust in George was an important factor in selecting his company. We knew he would do the right thing, even when no one was watching. Having known George for almost 30 years, we were comfortable leaving the house open to him and his crew, while we were away at work (they even entertained our dogs). Once they were on the job, they stuck with it until it was done. It was a huge job that included replacement of entire walls of cedar siding (over 1,700 sf) and trim (over 500 lf). They also removed and replace over 3,000 lineal feet of sealant. The balance of the job was scraped, power washed and primed (22 gallons for approximately 7,000 sf). We had George do two colors for the finish paint (13 gallons for the siding and 8 gallons for the trim). As with most home improvement projects, unanticipated issues arise. George was always able to suggest practical solutions to any problem that was encountered. His friend (Bob) even custom-crafted a new louver to replace an existing non-standard sized louver to our attic. Judy and I are relieved to have our house looking fresh and new. We wish to thank George and his crew for a job well done.

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!

Steve and his team were incredible. I needed our stairwell, dining room, living room, and kitchen painted. Steve was very punctual when it came to scheduling the estimate, start date, and all other communications throughout the project. His prices were fair and they did an outstanding job. All I was looking for was a professional team who would pay attention to detail and get the job done in a timely manner, and they delivered tenfold! I will be reaching out to them for our next projects, I highly recommend.

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.

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.

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.
