We had a railing on the front porch that rusted at the bottoms and fell off and Michael was able to re-bolt it into the concrete and make it look good. He also replaced the light on the front porch. He came out for an estimate the day after inquiring about this little project and came back the next day to finish it. Very timely, quality for cost, and very professional! Will use again for future projects.

My project (front porch and kitchen renovation) initially started with another local General Contractor. In the beginning the Contractor (owner of the company) seemed reasonable and nice. His bid was within my budget and we started work. But soon I realized what I had gotten myself into. It wasn't pretty. He turned out to be spread very thin (coming from his employee) very rude and unprofessional and the 3 weeks project (based on his initial plan) soon got extended to 2 and half months resulting in me having to eat out for 2 and half weeks because the kitchen was non functional. I had to reach out to Thumbtack for help. I fired those guys who charged me almost the full amount for a terrible job. Royal Home came to my rescue and saved the day. Roy (the owner) was very understanding of my problems and challenges from the beginning. He was very clear in the timeline and followed through as planned. His staff are very polite and very professional. I will highly recommend Roy and his team and I look forward to using them for my basement remodeling soon.

Kurt put up a porch swing for us. He did a great job and was fairly priced. He was also very flexible with our schedules. I recommend!

We have had several jobs done by the Avila Bros! They finished my basement kitchen & bathroom for our daycare, installed our wooden fence outside, knock out a wall to up open up our kitchen space, installed laminate flooring for the bottom of our stairs entry way, & built a half wall. We use them for anything we need done and they always impress me with their quality work!

Travis did a fantastic job installing steps and railings to our front porch. He was in constant communication with us throughout the process. We have even hired him to do more projects throughout our house! A great find!

Late in 2006 we purchsed a smaller house and thanks to our realator, we were introduced to Nelson and Sons. The home we purchased was in need of extensive work to make it safe, comfortable and beautified. Before we moved in, all the floors were replaced, carpeting some rooms, congolumn in kitchen and wood in the living room. This was accomplished perfectly for us and we could move in our furniture. There were also areas in the basement that needed repair - this too was done very well. The trim work on the ceilings and wainscoating are beautiful. After we moved in, we had the attached garage converted to a large dining room. It was a massive effort that he accomplished with apparent ease with his skills with woodwork, and all the necessary things to accomplish for a raised floor. After this, we needed a porch for our back door. Cement was poured, columns were added for the elongted roof of our porch. A beautiful place for morning coffee when weather/temperatures permit. We also decided we needed a garage. The 2 car garage is remarkably sturdy with an attic and very well built.. Travis worked the better part of a year for us. He was always punctual at work. His initiative, suggestions and high quality of work was appreciated by us. His special touch for a project were improvements that exceeded our expectations. During his time working here he detected several problem areas. Thanks to him our home is now safer and more comfortable. He also remodeled our bathroom and also cut a small window for this windowless bathroom, which now is very attractive for a bathroom. Another project was remodeling our kitchen - - new sink, fixtures, cubbards and dishwasher were installed. My wife was exceptionally pleased as it was remodeled exactly as she wished. Throughout it was a pleasure to have Travis working on our home. He is honest and trustworthy. We gave him a set of house keys so he could work when we were out of town a few days. A couple years after all this, we decided we needed a front porch. I showed him a photo of a portico on a Louisiana Plantation and told him we wanted one like that. He replicated the photo perfectly and now we have a very attractive portico with 2 large white columns. We have received numerous compliments on the beauty of our portico. My wife and I are tetired and this our retirement home. We now live in comfort, safety and beauty - - - and a special comfort knowing we can call on Nelson and Sons whom we can trust when we need work done or an inspection.

Dan Knipe and his crew Jacob and Josh were able to really help me. These carpenters have wonderful teamwork. Also, I was quoted a very reasonable price too. I found Dan through "Thumbtack", and he came to my house with his crew to rebuild my back porch. My back porch was very rotten underneath and was in much worse shape than expected. It had to be completely re-built and a replacement wooden screen-door hung. Dan had to make hand-crafted stringers for the stairs, since an already pre-made stringer did not fit. That took a lot of time, with measuring and sawing. Thanks to these great guys, my back porch is solid, safe, and looks good. I was so relieved. I felt safe too since Dan is connected to "Thumbtack" as a recommendation. I am definitely going to ask Dan, Jacob, and Josh for more work on the house as soon as we get good weather in the spring. Everything was completely effective and a pleasant experience. Doesn't get better than that.

    I enthusiastically recommend Robert Goodding, who has done consistently outstanding work for me. In addition to all the interior painting in my house, he stained my deck, fence, and screened-in porch inside and out, and refinished my 40-year old kitchen cabinets to better-than-new condition. He is meticulous and precise, and for the quality of his work, his prices are more than reasonable. Robert Sklenar 5541 Woodburn Dr Knoxville

    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.
