Mr. Mark Wittmeier rebuilt my cedar fence gait and fixed parts of my fence that were loose and bowing out. Without a doubt, he did excellent work! He contacted me the very day that I requested construction services. He is a professional in every sense of the word. He explained what the problem was with my fence and what the solution would be. Also, he quoted me a price that was very reasonable. I was surprised and happy how efficiently the work was completed. Needless to say, I will be hiring Mr. Mark Wittmeier for all my projects at my home. Thank you, Maggie Skoy

Greg intalled a backsplash in my kitchen which included tile demo and installed new mosaic tiles. He also installed and finished new hardwood flooring in my whole house. The work was done in a timely manner and was very high quality. Greg was very pleasant and professional in all aspects. He thouroughly explained the work process and was very insightful at answering questions and planning the design. The cost of the projects was very reasonable and I will hire Greg again when I need further services. I highly recommend horing Greg and I have already given his number to several friends who are planning projects in their homes.

We hired Don to install tile backsplash in our kitchen. He was pleasant to work with and we could tell that he was experienced in his craft. He made the process easy for us and we are very happy with the finished product.

I hired Barry to do a couple small things around the house and then a bigger project to install two stair railings. He did an excellent job! He is punctual, efficient, and ensures that the job at hand gets done. I would recommend him and will certainly be using his services again.

Jacob provided great communication with me leading up to the work. And the work....wow. I have a very large willow tree that lost several big branches and lots of smaller ones due to recent storms. Twigs everywhere. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the yard looked after completion. Jacob and his team made it appear like it never happened. Great cleanup job. Highly recommend this company.

Shae did a great job showing up on time and being pro-active on explaining what he would do. He took pictures of his work after it was done and even ensured to go the extra step of trimming back some tree branches that were hanging over the roof. Top notch service!

Jaimie did an excellent job for us! He fit us in even though we asked last minute, and he couldn't have been friendlier or nicer. He installed a chandelier in our foyer with an 18 foot ceiling. He's efficient, responsive, fair with pricing and we'll definitely ask him to do future projects. Highly recommended!

I’m so pleased to find Kel Heyl on Thumbtack as now he will be available to even more homeowners. Kel has done work on and in my home since 2004, from very large projects to small tasks.

Gene and his crew replaced our deck, replaced our front entry door and doors leading into our garage, and replaced our linoleum entryway with ceramic tile. End result was awesome and price was as quoted.

Chris did a great job building some cubbies above our entryway bench and coat rack. He matched the color and look of previously existing cabinetry perfectly and found creative ways to take cost out of the project overall. Blew are very happy with the result and would recommend Chris for any project.

See for yourself. Could not be more satisfied. This is just the front. The backside got even more work to include a patio door, lighting, deck, and new cement work for a patio and sidewalk. BARC also took care of some badly needed electrical work, & chimney repair. The quality of the windows is unmatched and comes with a lifetime guarantee. (Window issues solved forever). My home, to include the garage, is pretty much maintenance free now with the new siding,windows and gutters. Best part is the whole process, aside from really quality workmanship, was how quickly this big job was completed. It never felt like a rush job, and it didn't drag on either. These guys stuck to their projected time frame and got to work to complete the project. Digging into this project, a couple of fairly serious issues in the existing structure became apparent, water damage rotted a garage wall, and ants were making a home in the living room wall. BARC fixed these issues without a losing time or cleaning out my checking account. If you want windows, or a couple of up-dates, they can take care of you. If it is a major overhaul with unforeseen issues, they still take care of you. Keeping all this work coordinated, me updated, and always available for any questions, concerns, thoughts was Jim McCrank. The guy is really easy to work with and none of that "slick salesman" nonsense. So pretty impressed with BARC from my first contact with them all the way through the process and the finished work. Very satisfied on my end and highly recommend BARC

We're in the middle of finishing our basement and Josh with Cedar Creek Renovations did an amazing job on our somewhat unique project. We have an odd shaped corner fireplace, a bar, and a 200 sq ft wall running against our stairs to our basement and we wanted to put matching stone on all 3. We couldn't be happier with his work. The stone we picked out ended up coming in individual pieces and ended up being very time consuming, but Josh took the time to do everything right. He also came up with a custom solution to install a stair skirt that matched the thickness of our stone, despite the fact that there wasn't enough room to fit a skirt between the stairs and the drywall. Josh seems like a guy that can do just about anything and his many years of experience truly show in his work. His quote was also very competitive. I'll absolutely reach out to Josh for my future projects - I strongly recommend this company.

Beleza Siding did an amazing job replacing my entire houses siding. They also installed new aluminum fascia cover and gutters. They were very professional from start to finish during the project, focusing in on all the details, replacing some rotten wood, and doing insulation for free in an adequate time. I am very happy for chosen Beleza Siding to take care of my home.

We wanted to take this time to say what a great job Tru-Build did on our bathroom remodel. Ryan and Tessa are an amazing duo to work with. Tessa met with us and discussed our bathroom options and provided us with an interior design session that let us narrow down everything from the heated towel bar to the drawer knobs. Tru-build provided a high-end luxury look at an affordable price. In fact, they blew the other bids out of the water. As my husband and I are working professionals and have pets, they were considerate of our needs during the construction process. Tessa was onsite to meet the subcontractors every day and made sure our house was in tip top shape during the construction. The custom built cabinetry and glass shower door turned out amazing. I am truly impressed with Ryan and Tessa as they kept us in the loop during the entire project. I highly recommend using Tru-Build for your next remodel project.

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.
