Wayne and L&K Construction did an amazing job! Not only was this difficult job constructed well, it was done ahead of schedule. Wayne is not only an expert carpenter but he has a great eye for design. I will definitely use him again for future design/build projects.

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.

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

Our house was in serious need of painting and many areas in need of repair due to rotted wood, squirrels, carpenter bees, etc. It was a mess! Bill and his crew spent days fixing these issues, often working well after dark to get the job done. While the job took longer than expected he worked tirelessly to get things done. His hard work and attention to detail were greatly appreciated. Bill did an excellent job and has brought our house back to its original glory!

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!

    Not many carpenters show up when you want a wrap -around deck at your summer cottage using a wood hard -as -iron called Ipe . No staining or repair needed for like 50 years. Easy for you; impossible for most carpenters. Every board has to be buttoned to the next using special drill equipment - in this case along boards stretching 10’ x 25’ in one direction then 5’ x 25’ in the next. Lots of drilling; lots of buttons. Furlong took this on late fall/ early winter, freezing temperatures, fierce winds off the ocean, the usual shipment problems yet finished the job on time. The deck is spectacular and maintenance free. (Indoors to warm up, he re-installed a folding door in the cottage that was slipping off its track. No charge.) If you need detailed perfection Darrin Furlong’s your guy: the possible and impossible – no problem.

    "Gary and Dickie are extremely skilled carpenters and great to work with, too. My husband and I bought a large, timber-frame house attached to a 200+ year-old home that had been damaged greatly in a fire. We hired a special fire restoration company to take care of the smoke, but after a few days it became apparent that they were actually damaging the logs. Gary and Dickie took over and got rid of all of the smoke and char, using acid, grinders, and sanders. They replaced many of the floors and some of the beams. Probably the greatest challenge was the staircase. Dickie designed and constructed a new beautiful oak staircase, truly a masterpiece! On the old side, these guys repaired everything they could, and restored/replaced things in such a way that they “fit” with the old look and feel of the place. I would highly recommend this duo for any construction project and particularly for restoration." Barbara and Doug Southard Bradford, NH

    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.
