Steve contacted me quickly and did an excellent job. I needed the job done Sunday and no later than early Monday morning to move some items and carpeting that had been removed off the porch of a Condo. The computer would not allow me to put in Sunday's date. It said the day was over. But Steve was accomodating and removed items immediately and accepted my same day out of town payment. It seems he has all around experience. He was pleasant to work with and I will contact him for estimates in the future.

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!!!

Donnie, Dennis, and Chris of Sidebottom Home Improvements are the most professional, honest, and customer oriented team I have ever had the opportunity to work with. From the contract, price quote, to the end of completion with my home improvements which were numerous and included painting my exterior of my home with trim, staining three decks/porches and painting my barn size shed, these guys worked tirelessly and with committed dedication from start to finish to complete my requirements and went above and beyond my expectations to satisfy my wishes as a customer. Their work is second to none and I will use them for all my improvement projects and would highly recommend them to anyone! While working on my project, they received more job proposals while in our small city of Ramona, KS. Awesome guys who care only about the customer's satisfaction and excellent quality work at great prices. Thank You for an outstanding job and great work ethics!!!!!

DMA did a really beautiful job remodeling my house.

He withstood constant prodding and nagging from me but endured and it turned out great! Thanks Dustin!

Matt did a terrific job building a porch on the front of my home. I gave Matt a rough idea of the design and he implemented just as we wanted. I appreciated the attention to detail and Matt's willingness to make everything right.

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. He consulted with me about what I wanted done and was great to work with. I would highly recommend him to others and will definitely use his company again for future home repairs. Rose D.

At first we were skeptical. We have had some very bad contractors in the past . We weren't sure what to expect from B&D contracting services. At first we had a miscommunication problem with is crew but we worked through it an we all was on the same page after that miner miscommunication. Brian quoted us a very fair price for the work that they did. He has an awesome roofer and carpenter . Ron made are roof look great. Adam make are porch fascia's and soffits look amazing there post to look. Thank you so much Adam. Adam is Brian's right hand and this guy can build about anything. He made are house a home again.... Thanks again Brian,Adam and Ron for all your hard work. Stay true to your craft and everything will fall into place ... Yes we would use B&D Contracting Services again. Now all We need is it painted.

      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!!

      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.
