Dean was professional in his work as well as with his communication. Dean is a perfectionist and it shows in his install of the Screen Eeze and screen on our porch. I highly recommend him for your next project. He will be the first one that we call next time we are in need of a skilled carpenter. Could not be happier with our experience.

Dan removed my old deck and built a nice new one. He is an experienced carpenter and does quality work. I would not hesitate to recommend him for a similar job.

Laura did an incredible job putting up a fence around my back yard. The fence turned out beautifully and Laura was a real pleasure to work with. She worked with me to come up with the perfect design that so that I could get the look I wanted for the right price. She was very meticulous and thorough in her work but still got the job done in a timely manner. I could tell that she really cared about getting things done the right way. If you are looking for a carpenter I would highly recommend Laura!!

We can’t say enough great things about Scott & the work he’s done for us. We have used Scott for a number of projects in both our current home as well as our previous home. The most recent project he completed was a built-in wall unit for our living room & as usual, it turned out great. The work he does is amazing. If you are looking for a carpenter, we highly recommend Scott! Mac and Caryn McDaniel

I've just had the pleasure of working with Steve Damato. He returned my phone calls promptly, showed up when he said he would, and did a beautiful repair job on a structural beam in my 100 year old farm house in the proposed amount of time. Both he and his Master Carpenter have a great work ethic and are knowledgeable, neat, and thorough professionals. I look forward to working with Steve again and highly recommend him.

Just wanted to send another shout out to Drew! My husband and I originally hired him to install some Crown Molding in our living room with a cathedral ceiling, which we'd been told by many before that it was not possible. He did an excellent job on that project, so when we were in need of some other work, while we were preparing to put our home on the market, we of course called Drew. He was willing to think outside the box, when we described to him what we were looking for. We needed him to try and stop some creaking that we'd recently been hearing in our flooring. He was able to go into our crawl space below, creating a system that made a big difference in quieting our flooring in several different locations. He was also able to assist me with some other fixes needed, while my husband was away and did so by working me into his busy schedule quickly, because he understood time was of the essence. I can't thank him enough for the peace of mind he gave me during this time. My husband and I not only found an great and resourceful carpenter, but gained a friend!!

There were two jobs: 1) replace a water-damaged window sill, and 2) straighten a mailbox post. It was soon clear to me that Mr. Boswell is a skilled carpenter and takes pride in his work. The one and only problem was really my fault - I was distracted and did not go back inside the house to check the window until after Mr. Boswell left. Unfortunately, four nails had come through and were protruding from the frame apron. I called him and Mr. Boswell came back first thing the next morning to break off the nails, fill the holes, and paint the damaged wood. It took all of 10 minutes. Again, my fault for not catching this before Mr. Boswell left.

None of the other options responded as fast as Carpentry Solutions. The others responded with the basic email reply but Ricardo was ready to come and analyze, estimate, and get to work. Also the other options were not including caulking or painting for my wainscot and crown molding. Carpentry Solutions was a one-stop shop and it was completed in 2 days. Great job and thanks!

David installed a 20' long wall x 9' high built-ins, with bottom cabinets with doors and a new mantel around the fireplace in our home. Once the measurements were taken, it took about 3 weeks to be installed. Excellent work! He added detail that we did not envision. Stunning! David is a very talented carpenter! We will definitely hire him again for future projects. His price was competitive as well. We are very happy customers!

Mr. Manner treated his job very seriously and did a great job for us. His quote was very reasonable. He also helped us fixed a sliding door without adding money. I am very happy that I had Mr. Manner to do the work. I strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a responsible and professional carpenter.

I had two decorative columns designed and installed by Mark and they are by far the most beautiful structures in my house. They look as if they were part of the original construction; and are far more beautiful that I ever imagined they would be. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with the work Mark Nicopolis did for me. He was on-time for every appt. and paid attention to every detail. His work speaks for itself. It is beyond superb!!! His pricing is competitive and very fair. But, after you see his work, you will definitely wonder why it didn't cost more. You won't meet a kinder or more professional worker in the business. I called a few other carpenters about the work I wanted done and the estimates were through the roof. Mark came in and knew exactly what I was looking for, showed me a sketch and in days was on the job. He even made suggestions I hadn't considered and they were brilliant. I had my new columns finished in just hours. Super fast and simply sensational. Exceptional work! Every detail is precise. Beautiful!!! I HIGHLY recommend Mnico Construction Company without hesitation! And I look forward to having more work done by Mark in the future. This was by far the best home upgrade and investment I've ever made. I couldn't be happier and I LOVE walking into my home and seeing these gorgeous structures every day. I can't wait to entertain guests for the holidays. The columns are STUNNING and make my home showpiece!!!! Thanks so very very much!!

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.
