I had gutters installed and am very pleased. I was not familiar with the different types and Marcello took time to discuss my options with me. He did a great and timely job. I am considering putting a privacy fence and patio and will definitely hire him.

I needed a simple hand rail on my porch for insurance purposes and submitted a request. Travis was prompt in replying and was communicative. He came out, gave me a quote, and showed up the next day to build the railing. It looks good, he was very quick and friendly, and the price was reasonable. I will definitely contact Travis again when I need more work done.

    Glen was prompt in refinishing our table top, matched the rest of the table. Since then, we had him paint our house, replace screening and doors in our porch, and rehab a dining room chair. Good work, pleasant attitude!

    Mr. Broadus initially put a roof on our back porch and screened it in for us but after seeing what great quality work he does we ended up getting him to also do some painting for us, installed a fence with gate around our back yard and a few other little repairs we had around the house. To top it off, he did high quality work at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing things done around their home or business. -Marie from Ocean Springs, MS

    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.
