Jose was very easy to work with and accommodating. Happy with finished product (had screened in porch, deck and stairs stained). Even went above and beyond to change some light bulbs for us. Would contact for another job in the future

Sergio was great! I needed him to come do a quick change of my ceiling fan, install a flush mount light and repair my outside porch light. Even after an unexpected long day, Sergio still made it to my house and did all the repairs since we are under a time crunch to list our house. He also took it upon himself to repair a light fixture in our home that he saw on his own, without charging me more. A very good experience and extremely reasonable pricing.

Mr. Lopez re screened my patio, and painted the front and back entry to my rental property. He also made other reports to make the property ready to show potential tenants. He started a day earlier than promised, and was very professional. His work was top notch, and made me appreciate the home all over again. I will be hiring him for all projects and repairs in the future. Give Santiago a call and let him take care of your repair needs!

Dean did a great job screening in our front porch. He soldiered through some early unavoidable snags (thanks to a materials issue and dealing with a 1940 house that isn't exactly straight and square everywhere), and the end result looks awesome. His knowledge and attention to detail were impressive, and I'd definitely work with him again and/or recommend him to others.

Jim Amara is a true carpenter. Jim arrived on time, did the work I needed doing, which in my case was replacing some rotted deck boards, replace a hard weather beaten 2x4 on the top of my gate on deck and sure it up or re-align it so it opens/closes smoothly then sure up a 4 foot section of lattice and trim board underneath my screened in porch. Next is to get the deck stained, which Jim said his son would do in a few days (weather permitting) for an agreeable reasonable price that I won't disclose and that his son is in the process of opening up his own painting business. Jim took the extra time and paid attention to detail of adding wood filler where needed due to a 9 year old weathered deck in need of help. Jim provided all materials, brought his own tools and hauled off the removed rotted boards without me asking him too. Jim is very knowledgeable, professional & personable. I know exactly who to call the next time I need any type of carpentry work done, Jim Amara! (Did I mention he's fast...?) You'll feel the same as I once you give Jim's Carpentry a try. You won't have to tell your friends about Jim because they'll be asking you "who did this beautiful carpentry work"? You'll be proud to refer Jim to family & friends in knowing that they too will soon be as happy as you!

Fantastic job! We had our siding, porch, concrete pad, and deck all power washed and very happy with the result and price. We had several years of gunk built up and he took the time to get it all clean. Will definitely use again!

We needed an old wire fence removed and a wood fence installed. Rob was great to work with and did an excellent job. He kept me informed throughout the process and we are very happy with the result. While he was here we always had him work on our front porch which also turned out great.

I had a ceiling fan and the back porch light replaced. Donna arrived promptly and went right to work on the ceiling fan replacement. That took up the bulk of her time since, once it was up it was making a little bit of noise. She took the entire fan down, found the problem and then reinstalled the fan again! The back porch light fixture went up without any problem. I'm really happy to have found Donna on Thumbtack and she will be my go-to person for home repair/replacement tasks from now on. She is not only knowledgeable and competent in her work, but she is a very pleasant person.

Dan did a fabulous job for us in removing a load bearing wall and building a pantry. Before he started he walked us through everything and explained the process, taking the time to answer all our questions. He is very detail oriented and a true craftsman with extensive knowledge of home construction. We will not hesitate to hire him again for any future projects.

Jeremy finished an existing porch into a sunroom. He framed it, wired it, hung sheetrock, painted, and finished the exterior. He did a great job for us we were very pleased. He was reliable and very particular with all the details. He has since did several other jobs for us. We would high recommend him.

Dave helped tear down an old porch railing and then built us 8x8 columns, to our exact custom specifications. They came out beautiful! He did some repair work on our siding as well. He facilitated getting my house and shed painted using a local painter and I was very happy with the final product as well. His style may seem a bit laid back / not-hurried, but he works alone (generally) doing most jobs himself, so the work may happen slower than having a team of people crawling all over the house, but the quality was worth it. We wouldn't hesitate to use him again on our next project.

Exterior siding/trim boards replaced. John replaced rotting wood siding, corner boards, and window sills and a front post holding my roof up over my front porch. Work performed was excellent, he cleaned everything up perfectly. Weather was horrible, probably the worst weak of the year because it was so cold, he still did what he could when it wasn't raining or snowing. Weather caused delays, out of his control. I would definitely hire him again and would recommend him to anyone looking for home repair.

Mr. Pullen's name originally came up when I searched for someone to build a ramp off the end of my deck. I subsequently decided to hire him to pour the concrete footing, alter the porch railing to make a gate, and rotate a storm door for the vertical platform lift I chose to install instead of the ramp. The jobs were done just today. Mr. Pullen arrived promptly at 9 am, as he said he would. He displayed an excellent understanding of what I needed to have done, and he and his crew executed my requests. They appeared to have a good working relationship with each other, and they seemed to enjoy the work. One of them was even kind enough to interrupt himself while working on the storm door to help me insert a leaf into my dining room table. I'm visually impaired, and the concrete is still wet at the time of the submission of this review, but from a distance, it would be difficult, I think, to know that the porch railing has been transformed into a gate. The door closes and latches as easily as it it did in its original position. He showed me how he rerouted a downspout to accommodate for the footing he poured. And I'm assured that the concrete will be dry enough for the lift to be anchored to it at the end of this week. He will be back to remove the 2x4's and do some other clean-up work to the footing. Overall, I'm satisfied with my experience with Mr. Pullen to this point. I have some other jobs I need to have done, and I'm willing to consider him for those as well. Many thanks, sir.

Zuniga Construction has done two different jobs for us and we were thrilled with the results. The first one was removing and replacing a door and door facing. There is absolutely no evidence that the door/facing were replaced. The second job was 2 days of replacing facia on our roof. Sergio explained the process and materials used and it looks perfect! They are also very professional - providing an estimate (which was accurate) before the job was accepted and a printed receipt upon payment. My voicemail messages were returned promptly and Sergio was always on time. The one time he was delayed, he called to let us know. We really appreciate their punctuality, given our experience with previous contractors. We HIGHLY recommend Zuniga Construction!

I am thrilled with the work done by Premium Painting of NC. Within two days of completion, I received complements and requests for additional information about Premium Painting from several neighbors. Also, they do much, much more than paint. They painted the exposed wood on my vinyl sided house, repaired a rain rotted windowsill and power washed my house, driveway, and patio. They arrived on-time as promised prepared with commercial grade equipment and supplies. They power washed my siding, exposed wood, windows, and three porches. The next day they returned again on-time and, using name brand tape and plastic, covered my window glass, scraped, sanded, primed, and painted with a high quality, oil based paint, which they provided. They were friendly but professional, quiet, and clean. They moved and then moved back the many pieces of furniture on my porches. They listened whenever I commented and answered if I had questions. Initially, I had only intended to have the power washing done. However, I was so happy with that work as well as the men's work and attitude, I decided to have the other work done too. Plus the price was right -- extemely reasonable. They exceeded my expectations, especially when repairing the windowsill. My house is 90 years old. Most of the parts cannot be found nowadays. But they replaced the sill with a 2x8 piece of lumber, which is just the same as the original. They did this without me asking. They took no shortcuts. I am certain that I will be calling upon Premium Painting to do more work in and around my house in the future as will a few of my neighbors.

Replace porch railing/banister in two days. They were on time with no delays. Both knowledgable and open to suggestions their ideas given to the finished work was an asset to the value of the home. Extra effort was given to an unforseen problem at no additional cost. Work was neat and well organized. I plan to use them for future home improvements.

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.
