I contacted several fence companies when we wanted to have our fence built. Andy is the only company that showed up on time. Not only did I have a chance to express how upset with other companies I was, but Andy even came out on a Saturday to provide a bid for our job. Andy was very easy to work with and I can not think of a single time I had a question that was not answered promptly. Andy was even sympathetic to my crazy work schedule. Knowing I have to sleep during the day, he waited to build the portion of our fence until the end of the day. His price was very clear and it was easy to understand how much the total cost would be. I would recommend Andy for any fence job! In fact I kept one of his cards to have my deck and porch repaired in the spring. Could not be happier!!!

I was very pleased with the work Gary and his crew did on my front porch. It looks amazing! They completed the job in just one day.

Michael was able to come fix my front porch light that had been plaguing me for weeks, and he fixed my window screen to boot. I was looking for someone that could come promptly and was dependable, and Michael did all that and did a great job. Thank you!!!

I hired Manning Yard & Deck to help me with a front porch project. My old porch had significant wood rot and the posts were collapsing into the porch deck. They built me beautiful new porch, got the job done very quickly, great communication throughout the project, and were a pleasure to work with. I had some very last minute scheduling issues and they were able to accommodate them with no problem. I would definitely hire again and am already discussing some additional projects. Great experience.

      We actually hired Greg to replace one beam, but you know how that story ends. He's been forthcoming on any issue our house has thrown at us. We've gone from one beam to six, to tearing out our deck, to totally rebuilding it and adding a screened in porch. Greg and his team have been so easy to work with. Thanks again Greg, we look forward to working with you and our never ending project list!

      He put a back door off my kitchen where there originally was none, ran wiring and installed a back porch light. He was very professional and hard working, no slacking or dragging his feet he did an amazing job. He was very knowlegdable about the codes and what we could do and not do. We got a true bargain for his skill, professionalizm and hard work. Thanks again Double J Remodeling & Repair!!

      We had rented out our previous home for fourteen years. It had gotten very run down during that time. Mark installed all new LED light fixtures, new doors, new flooring, new fencing, a new front porch, new landscaping, new second deck, and a host of other repairs. We sold it for above asking price. Mark's a great guy with a tremendous work ethic and commitment to his customers. I'm now utilizing him with reoairs on my present home as well.

      Safehouse Contracting did absolutely terrific work in our kitchen, mudroom, laundry room, basement, porch/entry, and interior & exterior painting. We couldn't be more pleased with the quality of work and Safehouse's exceptional commitment to high standards. The workers were respectful and polite, always willing to answer questions, and quick to answer our questions. They took our suggestions with respect and often integrated our ideas into the work they were doing. We could not be more pleased with Safehouse Contracting, and we would definitely hire them again.

      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.
