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.

Jackie did a great job creating a hinged door for a plywood access panel. He also helped me to move some rather heavy furniture. He was friendly, on time, easy to work with. Definitely would hire again.

He did a great job and very quick. Very responsive to questions or changes that come up throughout the project. He designed and installed storage in the back of my RV and should have charged more. My family and I are impressed and pleased with the outcome. Thank you! People are finding out about his work and his schedule is getting full. Don't wait too long or you might not be able to get this guy to do your project!

Kurt was contracted to transform a 1300 sq ft unfinished basement into an apartment. This was a complete build out that included a large bedroom, walk-in closet, full bath, great room, kitchenette and storage closets. Kurt was prompt, courteous and had excellent attention-to-detail stills. He coordinated electrical, plumbing, dry wall, ceiling and floor installation. He was on the job working side-by-side with carpenters and always there to give direction and to confer when needed. I highly recommend Kurt when considering any home improvement or building related need.

    I called Andrew Smith construction to help with a kitchen/den remodel I was doing. He did an amazing job on the crown molding and cabinet refinishing for both of these rooms and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a skilled carpenter.

    The first time I met Jason, he gave me a new perspective on my work project that was even better than what I had in mind. The day he came to complete the project, he arrived on time and set to work at once. He was very friendly and worked very efficiently and meticulously. The finished job looks great and I am very pleased with the work he did. I would highly recommend him to any one who needs a very reliable and able carpenter.

    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.

    Rolando did a great job -- next day service, very methodical and he went to 3 different Lowe's to get the type of flooring I needed. Good price, let himself in the house, did excellent work was clean and loves the Lord -- need I say more?

    I handle nationwide installs across the country and I needed a carpenter for over night work in a high end project. NuWorld Design went above and beyond expectations and I will continue to use them for future projects in their area.

    Paul has built a ramp, a dock, re-roofed my home, built several out-buildings, and re-modeled some of my properties for me. He also builds houses from the ground up, decks, and handicap ramps, with no job too small or too large. He did my projects in half the time he said he would and did it accurately. He’s an excellent carpenter and stands behind what he says. If he runs into something he will come back to fix it and explain the issue and the solution. He is honest to the bone and always shows up on time or early, and can build anything. He is an artist with a piece of lumber. He works very fast and is very accurate with his work and estimates. He also has good morals and ethics.

    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.
