Joe is reliable and hardworking. He has done some repair work for the fitness studio I work at and had to come in and save the day after another handyman had done a poor job. I would recommend him for all your maintenance, design or construction of your home or business projects. A genuinely nice guy!

I am in the early stages of getting my home ready to sell in two years and am looking to add inexpensive touches so it will show better. I decided first to add chair rail and crown molding to the four bedrooms. I got three bids on the project; Dusty was a little bit higher than the other two. However, his walk though took about three times longer than the first two bidders because he took the time to point out problem areas and spent time explaining how he was going ameliorate those situations. I felt confident that I was going to get the results I was after. Dusty gave me advice on purchasing the trim and gave me enough lead time that I could get the trim painted prior to installation. He, along with one helper, completed the project in one long day. It came out perfect...better than I had anticipated. The only drawback is that Dustin's quality of work is higher than that of the original builder. We'll figure out that later. I was so pleased with his work that I've arranged for him do a second project for me later this winter and have two others in the works. I can recommend DF Carpentry without any hesitation.

Great experience. Very efficient and affordable. Price came in under that of the next guy. Most large fencing companies wouldn't take on a smaller project. The dog hasn't escaped yet, so the fence is doing it's job!

I have hired Rodriguez Construction (Paul) for several projects over the past few years and has done excellent work and I am planning on hiring for additonal work in the future. He is patient and thorough - he works to complete the project to exacting standards - works to "get it right" even if it takes more time! I have had him do a complete bath (remove and replace exisiting tub, shower tile, floor tile, sink, shower fixtures, grab bars, etc), replace kitchen floor (remove existing laminate, level and set existing sub-floor and replace with ceramic tile) as well as custom-size exterior french doors (needed to cut open exterior stucco wall) and build custom deck work and stairs. You will get far more than you paid for with Paul!

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.
