Jose was wonderful! He came on time and was done quickly and at the price quoted to me. They cleaned my gutters and roof and were sure to clear my driveway, sidewalk, and decks after they finished. Will definitely hire them again next time!

Joe and his team replaced ~85% of an old deck (12'x27') and created an addition to that same deck (~12'x17') and it looks amazing! We had several pictures of what we were looking for and Joe made some great suggestions as well. Once we selected the design, we had the quote quickly and a date established. It was a week long job and, God love 'em, it rained pretty much the entire time but Joe and his team continued to work. The deck looks amazing - and, unlike many builders, Joe makes sure that all the extra details are done....trimming around the bench base, angling the cuts on the bench and matching the bar area to match, framing out the lattice and putting on a nice access door with hardware (not just screwing it into the base). His price was so much better than what I'd been given by 2 other builders - which indicates to me that he's incredibly fair. A co-worker recommended Joe and I'm so glad that he did - I've recommended him to 2 other co-workers who also need something done at their house. He will definitely be our 'go-to' guy for future work :-)

Eduardo installed Bermuda and a step stone patio on my property. Eduardo was professional and went above and beyond my expectations for the sod installation. I was very pleased with the attention he gave the sod after installation to ensure that it was growing properly. I have recommended Eduardo to two friends who are in the process of getting sod laid. I will also hire him for future services. -Tremauri E.

Mr. Sawyer was referred to me by a neighbor who had used him previously to do some work at her house. I noticed how nice their house looked after he was done and decided to hire him to power wash and fix up my porch deck. He arrived on time and was polite and professional. He carefully listened to what I wanted done and we decided together that he would replace some damaged boards on the deck and restore and restain the rest. He went right to work powerwashing that day and came back the next day to do the deck. Everything looked great when he was done. The house was bright and clean and the deck looked brand new! I really was pleasantly surprised and believe he charged me a fair price for all the work that he did. I definitely will be calling him back to powerwash again and any other home improvement jobs I might have.

We hired Rob to repair the deck on our rental property. We needed the flooring and railing completely replaced. Rob's work was just beautiful--including routed edges, diagonal seamless board flooring and stylish railings. The work looks very professional. The job was completed in just a couple of days. We couldn't be happier. We will definitely hire Rob for future work and highly recommend him.

I hired Mr. Byrd and his crew to do some interior painting, pressure wash house and decks, and repair rotten door frame. His initial response for a price quote and scheduling was very good and he underbid another home repair contractor and that was good. Overall Mr. Byrd and his crew did a very nice job on the interior painting on walls which were badly stained by cigarette smoke over the years. However, I should have known better than to go to work and leave a check expecting the work to be completed, but I didn't really have a choice that day. The back door frame that was repaired badly needed a second coat of paint. Also, when pressure washing the front deck floor they chipped the paint of the bottom of the deck rails. I called Mr. Byrd and told him about this. He told me that he would come back early the next week. That's been 2 weeks ago and I've not heard anything else from him. I have a realtor coming in to look at the house next week so I guess I'll have to make these corrections myself. Although these are small things, I feel he should make it right since he's been paid for the job. Mr. Byrd has come back to correct the issues that were pending. Apparently, he thought that someone in his crew had come back to do this, but they had not done so. Everything looks very good now.

I needed some exterior maintenance done on my rental house in NC. I happen to be in a different state, and could not be present, so I was a little anxious about this, especially since I have tenants living there. The work included some tree trimming, new roof vent system, pressure washing and staining of the entire house, and some minor trim replaced. Mr. Ursini gave me an initial estimate for a good portion of the work and I sent him a deposit. He completed the work in a timely manner and communicated with me about the state of things and what was needed. He also sent me pictures, before and after, and it was almost as good as being there. After the initial round of work, I decided to use them to complete an entire stain job on the cypress siding and decks. I was very pleased with the quality of work and it was evident that Ron really wanted to do a good job for me. I will use them again in the future.

A pleasant experience having a sliding patio door fixed. He arrived exactly on time, intelligently diagnosed the issue and completed the job without a hitch. He even went farther and replaced and installed a lock on the door, which was an issue we didn't even consider. He just took initiative and did it. We had been using a plank of wood to hold it shut. Got a really good honest, hardworking vibe from this guy. We will absolutely be going to him with future jobs.

Perry didn't an excellent job with our under deck patio project! He was very responsive, through and stayed within my budget. He worked to fit us in between projects and made sure we were satisfied before he left. We will be hiring Perry for another project soon!! Thanks Perry!

We wanted an enclosed deck built to replace the existing one. From start to finish Manuel demonstrated a willingness and commitment to make sure we were satisfied with the quality of the job. As part of his business practice he gave an honest and very fair cost estimate and made adjustments to accommodate our budget. At the completion of the project I referred Manuel to a friend who is interested in having a similar project completed at his home. We will also have Manuel come back in less than two months to complete another project which will include rebuilding the brick steps leading to the front door.

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.
