Dave and Jack did a great job preparing and painting the front of our home. That is the south facing side which get beat down by the sun, and it required quite a bit of work. Dave and Jack removed all the shutters, power washed the siding, scraped, and applied two coats of stain and paint to the siding, and trim. The paint color match with the other three sides is perfect, and the house looks great again. He also did some carpentry repairs to rotting and damaged wood trim and our deck. Dave and Jack worked hard and enthusiastically, and took great pride in their work. Everything was completed in a professional and timely manner. If you need this type of work done, I would highly recommend Dave's Painting and Handy Service.

John was a pleasure to work with. His master carpenter, Dave was easy to work with and helped to repair a badly rotted screen porch. I hope to hire them to repair my roof this summer.

Some say, "A good man is hard to find." Only, in John Phair, "Tim," I found a skilled, very hard-working carpenter with a lot of integrity. John fixed a set of heavy bi-folding kitchen doors for me; doors that two previous carpenters did not repair properly. What is more, John told me that if any problems with the doors recur, he would repair them free of charge. That is what I call integrity.

He was punctual, professional, and in constant communication with us. His crew was also phenomenal and we were pleased with their quality of work. We would highly recommend Mark to anyone who needs a dependable carpenter.

Thu 8:49 AM Jeff was the first to respond to my request on Thumbtack for a carpenter in the Rockport MA area. He was easy to communicate with and was prompt in any meeting time or email communications we needed. The estimate was clear and we felt reasonable. The work, wood rot replacement, & patio paver repair looks great. I will hire him again to work at my house.

Bruce Montville did a fine job, competent and was very pleasant. Expensive, but so were all the other bid's I received. Bruce was also the first available. I just think small carpenter jobs have become too expensive. The hourly rate surpasses teachers, nurses and other similar professions. There really is no alternative if you need to have work done in your home.

I had many little jobs that needed to get done capped off by a complete bathroom renovation. Jim was reliable, complete, fairly priced, clean, and an excellent communicator as I was not present for any part of the job. He went out of his way many times to pick up product that was not at the local Lowes or Home Depot. I was also impressed with Jim's many skills. He is an all around great carpenter, painter, plumber, and electrician. I would highly recommend him for any job that you might have (big or small). I will be keeping his contact information close by for when I need him again. Rob, Manchester NH

John is a craftsman and a professional. We needed two exterior and three apartment doors replaced to better insulate our apartment from sound and the cold. He did the legwork to find out which doors best fit our needs and our budget. Our front door is not regulation size. He quickly came up with a solution that everyone in our condo association was happy with. The installation process was quick and he thoughtfully cleaned up the sawdust and removed the old doors for us. We would recommend John to our friends looking for a carpenter.

Steve is not only a skilled carpenter - he is a talented artist. I had a very difficult cabinetry job to do because this job had been botched up by another carpenter. Steve did an amazing job and I was personally impressed by his incredible skill level and his dedication to perfection. I would highly recommend him and would definitely use him again. Thank you, Steve!

Byron Cunha did a great job adding a second egress to my multi-family home. He took the time to talk to me about the project requirements and explained how things would be done in a way that made me feel confident that I would get a good finished product. He always got back to me when I had questions and he was able to work with me when requirements had to change. Byron's team made sure I was satisfied with the result before closing the project. Definitely a good crew to work with.

Charlie is a finish carpenter as well as a General Contractor with architectural design talent. Over the past 2 years, he has completely renovated a large gutted loft condo and our 3500 sq ft home in West Medford. People cannot say enough about the wonderful job that he and his small crew accomplished. Neither can we, because we know that some of the situations both homes presented were extremely difficult. He converted a high-end Poggenpohl kitchen to fit the space in our condo, & the whole condo is done in granite and marble, including floors, and full of subtle amenities. And the upgrades he made to our Medford house caused it to sell at a great price right away. He can do anything with wood - did I say that before?? The cherry medicine and bathrrom cabinets & Jacuzzi surround are just gorgeous, and once done, we had to be pried from our house. And on top of that, he is a first class guy - you'll love him, as we did.

Adrian Silver painted our living room and kitchen/dining room. The painters and carpenters were very professional and incredibly thorough. I would use them again and plan to in the future. Highest recommendation.

Being a single mom, I have never felt so lucky to have found Josh, he was reliable, honest and a great carpenter/landscaper. The first project he did was a walkway and steps. It came out better than I imagined. He also did some work on the inside of the house when I was at work. His attention to detail/my vision was unlike anyone that has done work for me. He is pleasant to deal with and never once did I feel that he was not doing the work in a timely manner. I had a contractor last year that redid my interior stairs and I was paying him hourly I was not happy how slow this man was and when I confronted him he threatened to leave. This has never been the case with Josh he goes above and beyond and anyone would be lucky to have him, you would be very happy with the outcome, I know I have been.

Matt has been my go to carpenter since we had him put an addition on our house in 2006. We added a 2 car garage with bed room office and bathroom above , and attached it to a split level house so some outside the box thinking and construction was required. Matt listened to what we wanted, added his carpentry expertise and we are very pleased with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any constriction project his skills are many and his years of experience make his work top notch!

      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.
