We have a beautiful enclosed porch!! Thank you, Nick! This is the first time I hired Nick and am so happy I did. We had a deck that we wanted to enclose. Even though we had some ideas, Nick is very knowledgeable and offered great advice thruout the project; especially with the EZbreeze windows. He is very professional,communication was plentiful with Nick and Kim, and the workmanship was well beyond our expectation! If you want a contractor who arrives as promised, takes pride in his work, gives a fair and reasonable quote, then completes work quickly and efficently please call Nick. Both Nick and his wife, Kim, are an absolute pleasure to work with.

Repair siding and porch railing. Mr. Blake was prompt, professional and considerate. He looked at the work, told me what needed to be done and quoted a very fair price. He also told me when he would complete he work. He was a man of his word and I do not hesitate to recommend him. I plan to use his service in the future. Thank you Mr. Blake

Jose was great to work with. He did an excellent job and we ended up using him for about eight different projects. He replaced a roof on a rental property which including him removing and replacing facia boarding, extending the roof ridge and adding a front porch. It turned out excellent. He also helped us expand our back deck for a hot tub. His work is excellent, he is honest and friendly. I would certainly recommend him!

The driveway and the patio look really clean now. I guess the front porch could have gotten cleaner though. The price was very reasonable. Did have to use my own water. A lot of water. I would recommend the technician to others. Overall a good job.

Amazing - a hard-working gentleman, with a million dollar smile and personality. Mr. Gordon built a beautiful wood front porch for us and could not have worked harder or better if he tried. I will use his talents again - no doubt about it. Great Job Dennis!!!

I had RWB Contracting to do an addition on my deck. It was a 12x16 addition. He was able to transition the old deck to the new deck with two steps that was the width of the existing deck that also can be used as seats. I also had him install a chain link fence in my back yard to contain my five fogs which was 100x200 with a double gate and a single gate. Also he installed a sidewalk for me 4x16 and matched up to my front porch perfect. After installing the sidewalk I have this big hill that had stepping stones in it leading down to the sidewalk I asked what could be done there so we didn't break our necks trying to walk down it he suggested to install railroad ties leading down. I had him install that as well he benched the ties into the existing hill and the steps are solid and excellent footing. I had this work done 3 years ago and it is still in excellent shape the sidewalk had no cracks in it. I was very pleased with Ricky and his staff I had all this work done all at one time and he was done in one weekend. He built the deck and had the fencing up had the steps in and had the sidewalk prepped ready to pour all in one day. The next day he poured the sidewalk and was gone.

When we couldn’t find front porch railings we liked at the big box stores, we turned to Thumbtack. We had a really clear vision of what we wanted. Something simple and classic, easy to clean and a wide top to put things on while juggling for keys. Of all of the estimates we got, Jorge and his father were the only ones to talk about perspective and what would look best from a distance and close up. We talked about how they would be welded together and attached. They noticed a potential problem with the alignment because of the way our porch was built but quickly came up with a couple of possible solutions. They had the materials and finished we wanted. No one else came up with the whole package for the right price. They are truly artists who take pride in their work. I highly recommend them!

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

To prepare our house for sale, we hired Westlake, based on a recommendation from a close friend, to work on several paint projects to help improve the appearance of our home. We are so glad we chose them. Projects varied from bedroom walls to front porch railings and columns to closet doors to touch up paint on ceilings and trim work. All prep was done by Westlake making it so easy for us. We didn't have to do anything but answer the door to let them in. All the painters were exceptionally polite and respectful. They paid special attention to cleaning everything up when they were finished and put all the moved furniture back in the right spots, so when they left, it was if they were never here except the house - inside and out - looked so much better with the new coats of paint! The quality of their work was impressive, so much that we have already asked them to come back to do more projects starting next week. We highly recomment Pat Healy and his company, Westlake Painting & Drywalk.

I have hired Harrington's Remodeling & Construction on many occasions to do work at my home & my mother's home. He has remodeled 4 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, built a deck, built a porch, & much more for me. Robert, the owner, is very professional. He cares about customer satisfaction & quality of work which is becoming more & more valuable. He is very informative in the entire process from quotes to final touches. He does beautiful high quality work at the best prices I have found. I would highly recommend Harringtons Remodeling & Construction for any of your needs. I truly don't think you will find a more qualified & honest company who delivers exactly what is promised.

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.
