I had hired another Thumbtack "carpenter" to build me a set of stairs for my home. The City of Knoxville Building Inspector REJECTED my steps TWICE. I knew the man I hired could not do the job"up to code" I again went with Thumbtack,,, to find someone who could build me 6 stringer wood steps that would pass code,,,and look good! Mr Seay answered my prayers,,,and assured me that they would pass. And you know what,,,they did!! And they look good. I've got the best looking,,built to last many,many years,,,front porch steps on the block! For sure,,,if you need steps,,in the city of Knoxville,,,get him first. And save yourself the expense and humiliation of having to do it over. And over. He also has experience with other areas of home repair/improvement that I will be using in the near future,,,without the worry of having to redo it. So happy to have done business with him and his workers.

I found Don to be a very good craftsman as well as prompt, courteous, very neat and clean, and eager to please.. I highly recommend him. He replaced a bathtub with a walk-in shower that required plumbing, carpentry, electrical and floor tile talents.

I have to say I got more than I bargained for hiring this company. Not only is Chris an excellent carpenter, he is a wood genius! All you need to do is give him a general idea of what you want and he will run with it. He did my stair railing, custom built a faux ceiling beam in my kitchen and my laundry hamper for my laundry shoot. In addition, he made sure to install the hamper with hardware that will allow it to lock and keep little fingers from getting squished. Questions he asked were very simple and included, "How high and what color?" which I love because I don't speak wood. His attention to detail is borderline OCD but that's exactly what you want if you expect a project to be done right. His wife Mya is his helper/accountant/painter aka 'jack of all trades'. She's super friendly and helped explain portions of the project to me in layman's terms which I greatly appreciated. I will definitely hire this company again for future projects. They're honest, trustworthy, affordable and do an absolutely outstanding job!

Shane created and installed some built-in shelves. He came to estimate quickly (on a Sunday) and completed the job within a few days. We needed it done quickly and he responded to our needs. I recommend him highly for any interior carpentry.

    JonesCo (KC Jones) has built 2 residences for us over the years, as well as completing several remodels involving major structural changes. He has also helped us out with few smaller projects like new decks, kitchen and bath overhauls etc. Unlike many building contractors today, KC is involved on a daily basis with his subcontractors and clients alike. In our experience he personally makes sure that all details of a job, from materials inspection to overseeing crew work flow and subcontractor staging are carried out efficiently and competently. We have found him to go beyond the norm to ensure that every detail of a given job is completed to the client's satisfaction. He is not only personable and reliable, he is a craftsman in the old world tradition, (a breed on the verge of extinction sadly enough). Excellent value, excellent adherence to schedule. We recommend JonesCo very highly.

    Kurt was contracted to transform a 1300 sq ft unfinished basement into an apartment. This was a complete build out that included a large bedroom, walk-in closet, full bath, great room, kitchenette and storage closets. Kurt was prompt, courteous and had excellent attention-to-detail stills. He coordinated electrical, plumbing, dry wall, ceiling and floor installation. He was on the job working side-by-side with carpenters and always there to give direction and to confer when needed. I highly recommend Kurt when considering any home improvement or building related need.

    It’s rare one encounters a standout, accomplished talent like Anthony Alexander in the home repair and reconstruction business. I have hired many craftsmen and carpenters over the twenty-plus years I have lived here in Asheville, and I can easily rate Anthony’s overall work as highly skillful, and his work ethic as superlative. The only difficulty I experienced with Anthony, was remembering which of his names came first. Like many of our Supreme Court Justices in history, his full name is interchangeable: Anthony Alexander, or Alexander Anthony. But, I digress… This is one letter of recommendation I am very pleased to write. Anthony is a consummate professional. He is proficient in his craft, and is a perfectionist in applying his knowledge to the task at hand. I hired Anthony to repair and reconstruct my deck (2000 sq. ft.), which suffered from an incompetent, unskilled carpenter (who had excellent reviews on “Thumbtack”) whom I had hired earlier to resurface, sand and stain my deck. Anthony was completely uncowed by the extensive damage and substandard workmanship left for him to repair. Anthony provided his estimate in a very timely manner. His cost estimate was more than fair. He did exceed his initial estimate as to how much time he would need to complete the job, but I had thought, myself, that it was going to take him a little longer than he thought – the deck was truly a disaster! Anthony worked as though this was the most important job in his life. He arrived at my home every day from start to finish (except for weekends). He never left me guessing if he would come, and, if he was going to be late (which was rare), he always let me know well ahead of his scheduled arrival. The end result of Anthony’s work is breath-taking. I could not have asked for a better outcome. I gave Anthony some “before” and “after” photographs which I hope he shares with you. If he is shy about this, please email me, and I will send you as many pictures as you might need to convince you of my ability in evaluating his work.

    quality is appreciated after cheap prices fall apart


    As a carpenter, I can install cabinets, microwaves, build walls, and remove chimneys. As a mechanic, I can install brakes on cars and trucks. Also, I can rebuild engines, install alternators, generators, radiators for vehicles, change tires, and just about anything to do with vehicles. I can weld, and have worked with a gas company installing gas lines for 15 years.


    There are hundreds of cabinet shops and good carpenters. One thing that sets me apart from the rest and that is "design". I have the creative artistic "gift", for lack of better words. Also, I serve my "gift" instead of serving "money" with the opportunity to be creative... money becomes less important. I love what I do. My works will be my legacy, and really, what else is there?


    We do quality framing at its best. We handle all facets of construction from simple decks to custom home building. We are an American pride and an American labor kind of company. We also specialize in all kinds of roofing from build up to metal.

    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.
