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!

I wanted a platform deck to attach to an existing staircase from my backdoor. I was looking to keep costs down as much as possible and Ron was able to accommodate. He offered a few options on how to accomplish this and I'm glad he suggested different options. The job was a little bigger than initially though (again, this was a little more complicated from the start) but at the end of it, I have an amazing deck that I can cherish with my friends and family. It was approximately 225 sq ft deck with stairs on two sides and took approx 4 days to build. I'll definitely contact Ron in the future for anything I can't handle. Ron's strengths are communication, options, flexibility, and quality work. He wants to make sure the customer is happy. Thanks Ron!

This was without a doubt one of the best experiences I've had with a contractor. I had work done to remove a large fallen tree branch and repair of the fence that it crashed through, as well as deck repair including replacing a rotting deck post. Jaime got back to me almost immediately after my thumbtack request, came out the next day for an estimate, and completed all the work a few days after that. He was very easy to work with and he even fixed a few other things I noticed while he was there working. I would highly recommend him for your job.

Mr. Sawyer power washed my house, deck, and screened porch today. He was prompt, professional, and very detailed orientated in his work. I had a lot of mold on the back of the house, and he cleaned it to perfection. He took his time and continued to clean the whole house until it was totally cleaned by his standards as well as mine. He was extremely polite and his work ethics were impeccable. I will refer him to my friends and surely ask that he return again.

Rob was extremely polite and came out and got our job done quickly. He put up our fence and built our new deck in 4 days! After he built the deck we didn't like where we told him to put the stairs and he came out and moved them for us. We highly recommend working with Rob and his team.

We had the exterior of our house painted and the deck stained. Brandon let me know in advance when to expect his crew, about any changes or delays due to weather, and let me know after he did some more research that the more expensive deck stain I was considering having them use was probably not going to hold up as well as expected and convinced me to go with a more economical option. They did a great job.

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.

Dan was prompt and clear in communication, reasonably priced, and did a great job on our much needed deck repairs. Additionally, the turnaround on this project was much faster than I had hoped for. I couldn't ask for anything more. I highly recommend him and will likely use his services again.

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!

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.
