I highly recommend Bob from Renovation Pro. He did an excellent job and gave a fair price. You can see the before and after photos. This tile was extremely heavy and required many individual cuts. I wanted a contractor that was local and experienced, that's Bob!!

I enjoyed dealing with Jeff, he was professional, on time and offered a fair price for the job. I am pleased with his work as well. I will have him come back and do some more jobs. Despite the bad weather conditions, it rained and sleeted the day he began the job. He persevered until conditions made him stop for safety's sake. He came back the next morning with a heater to help combat the cold. He did a good jod installing a storm door on the front and back door, which included some extra carpentry work. I highly recommend J&J Woodworking.

Bruce is a great professional to work with. Extremely punctual, and very reliable. Bruce completed trim work for a 1,200 sq. ft. great room with cathedral ceilings. Not many carpenters can do the type of intricate detail work Bruce can. Bruce also prepped (conditioned, stained, and polyurethane coat) over two hundred 16 foot long pine tongue and groove boards (for the great room ceiling installation). Would definitely recommend, and in fact, we're using Bruce for many more remodeling projects at our home.

I hired Countryside Home Tech initially just to do several built in bookshelves in my home office and some custom wainscoting in my foyer and a custom accent wall in my dining room, however after visiting his website to see his work and speaking with him in person, my wife and I decided to also reface our kitchen cabinets from a dark wood to a creamy white with a slight brown accent. I first have to say that everyone that worked in my house with Bob was professional, neat, respectful and just an overall pleasure to have in your home. The work of the carpenters that did the custom bookshelves and wainscoting was impeccable, precise and most of all they were diligent, efficient and quick. Bob literally transformed the entire 1st floor of our house with his attention to detail, craftsmanship and perfection, and I am so very appreciative and thankful for the outstanding work that he did. I received about 7 estimates from different contractors before hiring Bob and I now know that we made the right choice. Thank you Bob! I WILL definitely hire Bob again for more projects down the road.

Eric and his crew at Inkwood were great to work with. We had a kitchen remodel that involved removing load bearing walls and installing a steel I beam, as well as framing a new mudroom and laundry room. They showed up on time, worked hard, completed the project ahead of the estimated time frame, and followed through with any questions or concerns. They also made sure the job site was tidy at the end of each day, and ensured a solid barrier was in place between the work site and living quarters to keep the dust out. The job was permitted and passed inspection with no problems. We would definitely recommend them for any carpentry work, and will likely hire them again in the future. Thank you Inkwood!

I hired Shane to pressure wash my house, porch and the fences around my property after a friend of mine recommended him. I appreciated that he was not in a hurry and spent time on detail. The pressure washing revealed some wood rot on my trim. I was surprised and grateful that Shane turned out to be a talented Carpenter as well as a skilled Pressure Washer. After a quick trip to Lowes for some trim pieces and a little bit of paint, my home looks very much like it did the year we moved in. I recommend Shane to my neighbors and friends without reservation and I have taken the time to write this to recommend him to you. David

Mr. Collingwood built a garage addition on to my house this last spring. The work was done in a fast, proffesional manner. Mr. Collingwood kept us informed about the process every step of the way and within the original budget as outlined by Mr. Collingwood. After that Mr. Collingwood did a job for my neighbor building a deck and the neighbor was also quite pleased. We both have no problem reccomending Collingwood Sawdust Builders for any carpentry work you may need.

Yerif did an excellent good job installing my crown molding and wainscoting. It only took him three days to complete the entire project including tearing down sheetrock and adding railings. I am very glad that I hired him to do the work and I would definitely hire him again for any other projects I may have.

Good job on the 500-LP rack he custom built for me with wood. I drew up the design and he embellished it with some good ideas and implemented it. The wood staining job was ok, but the build quality was good. Thanks Dan.

Mr. Carpenter has completed several handyman services for me over time such as changing a garbage disposal, putting lights in closet, door repair, etc. He has always been professional and reasonable in pricing. I would highly recommend him.

Amazing carpenters. Pictures do not do justice of the work done on our home, arbors and custom gazebo (which is a must see). They turned our average home into a home straight off a southern plantation with all the details. The goal was to have people actually believe the home was the original house on this old farm we bought. The columns, panelled porch ceilings and crown are stunning. Strangers have no idea the house is only 5 years old! We will never use any one but A Royal Touch Custom Woodworking.

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.
