Bart was amazing to work with! I had never used Thumbtack before, but from the moment Bart contacted me about the project, he was professional, courteous, kind and helpful. We had recently put our home up for sale and the home inspection came back that we needed new joists in our garage. Bart came to take a look, gave us an estimate and was able to perform the work days later. I cannot say enough good things about Bart, not only as a carpenter, but as a person. He's genuine and true to his word. He also offered loads of advice on other things that we needed fixing -- he truly helped us out immensely. If we ever are in need of other projects, Bart will be the first person we call (and recommend to our friends!)

Had an urgent situation to get a carpenter over to put down 1/4" plywood for a tile crew. The subfloor was in rough shape. Greg contacted me and was out within a couple hours and did a great job.

As with any house, 55+ years old, there are uneven floors, out-of-date finishes, no-longer-standard fixtures, a bad update or two and odd corners. Our job for Jamie was to work with all of those realities and still complete a finished carpenter's quality replacement of baseboards and casings throughout the upper level. Not a single glitch, situation or scenario was too much for his skill level or his friendly, calm demeanor. A relaxed, yet professional attitude was necessary for this job. He is the only carpenter we'll ever call from this day forward. Oh, and he even got our freaked out Chihuahua to mellow out.

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.

Roger built new kitchen cabinets for me and reconstructed doors and woodwork in a 1913 house I have rehabbed. He listens and makes suggestions The project turned out wonderful. I shopped him he was the same price as the cabinets alone at the big box retailers and less expensive than other custom cabinet builders. I would hire him again. Roger rocks.

First Thumbtack project, ever; so I was not sure what to expect. Was a little skeptical of GSD Handyman after reading their last review. But, his price and previous project photos were too compelling to not take the risk. Plus, I am hiring a “handyman” not a “babysitter”. Best decision I have ever made! GSD Handyman does amazing work, hands down the best contractor I have ever used. The quality and craftsmanship of his work was truly amazing. He treated me like a person, instead of a job. He took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. Upon completion of this project, I asked him about a few other projects. Like a kid in candy store, cannot wait until he completes those projects. I would recommend him to anybody for any project. Gerry is an extremely skilled carpenter. He should be the next person you hire!

Straight Cut worked with us to design a one-of-a-kind deck that was both goooorgeous and handicapped accessible for my husband. We originally presented a couple of ideas Brady talked us out of as a waste of money. His partner Brandon took our basic concept and elevated it with some unique design elements and we are so very happy with the result. They started right on time and the carpenters were great to have around for two weeks. Good people! We will ask them to help with future projects, for sure. Thank you!

A bathroom remodel that included gutting everything except the vanity. Jim and those he works with were in constant contact and kept on track as promised with timing of the project. Jim will help you coordinate all materials with the best merchants to ensure the best price. He has relationships with all of them which ensures best prices possible for countertops, cabinets, tile (including design) as well as labor. We had no idea how to approach a bathrom remodel and knew we didn't want to act as our own general contractor. Hiring Jim to oversee it, helped us get the remodel done quickly, with good quality materials at a lower price than we would probably have been able to realize on our own. The tile installer was incrediblly meticulous. It looks perfect throughout the room from the shower to the bathroom floor and other walls. They took extreme care to keep the area clean and always cleaned up at the end of the day. We won't hesitate to work with Jim and Cady Handyman in the future for other remodeling. We highly recommend Jim.

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.
