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!!!

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.

They did a great job rebuilding our back patio and turning it into a screened in porch. They will walk you through the entire process to make sure you are comfortable with what they are doing. Workers were really friendly and hard working.

    MCJ and Associates painted our house, repaired some wood rot, raised our screened porch and replaced the screens on the porch. They did excellent work including some creative solutions to solve issues with our sinking deck. I enjoyed having them around and was always comfortable with them coming and going even when I wasn't home.

      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.

      November 26, 2012 Review and opinion of “Mike” Yelton Construction, Lathrop, Missouri 64465: It has been over a year since the completion of this project. We were referred to Mr. Yelton by a neighbor who used his company to build their deck. My wife and I had been considering adding a screened in porch and storage room to our Overland Park, KS home in Johnson County. We were not a simple project because of my previous construction experience (customer thinking he knows what he’s doing); my wife’s and my conflicting ideas (argued for over 5 years before ever calling a contractor); and huge (12’) screen free spans. I had also heard that Overland Park was a difficult city for building permits. He came in under the budget and before the completion date. The porch is 432 square feet plus an additional storage below of 432 for a total project of 864 square feet. It has a magnificent vaulted ceiling, 5’ wide stairway, and built stout. There are times during the day you would swear that you can’t see the screens from the inside. It turned out to be a beautiful addition to the home. It looks like it was originally designed that way. By the way, Overland Park, Kansas could not have been an easier city to work with. The Scout Law states, “A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent”. I consider Yelton Construction to be the embodiment of all of these attributes plus, very economical, and fast. Do not hesitate asking him for a bid. Keith Barrett

      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.
