Jason and his son did a great job re-grouting the tile in my bathroom and installing ceiling fans in two rooms. Communication and scheduling was easy. He was knowledgeable and his pricing was within my budget. I'd recommend him to anyone! Thank you!!

Sebastian was very prompt and professional. He was asked to silicone toilets and a backsplash. I thought that the backsplash turned out well. His workmanship on the toilets however was quite crude - not at all what I had expected or seen of other jobs and hard to fix once that silicone was laid down (see photo). I also had to supply painter's tape - not something which was communicated beforehand and something that I hasten to think buyers should need to know else they can expect worse results. I have contacted The Service Guys in the hopes of having at least one toilet re-siliconed (where I have already cut away some of the excess silicone that missed the gap, making it an easy touch up). I will update if that happens.

Joseph did an excellent job installing a wall lamp above the bed. He was courteous, friendly and efficient. He checked with me during the installation to make sure the lamp was being installed to my specifications. He even texted me to let me know there was a delay on the subway and that he might be a little late. In a city where finding a good handyman is often challenging, Joseph is a find! I will definitely call on him again when I'm in need of the kinds of services he provides.

Greivin constucted a custom garden box that had a bit of complexity because it had to hide an unsightly platform on my patio. It was excellent work and as importantly he was consistently communicating with me and my wife and very good at setting expectations and following through as promised.

I had Pete power wash my rooftop terrace, consisting of cedar decking and concrete pavers . He washed the cedar decking and built in planters by hand. Thoroughly removing all mildew, algae and grim without harming the wood. He used a pressure washer on the concrete pavers which he brought to the job. He did a great job! Fast and clean. It looks great! I would recommend him for similar work. Very pleasant to work with.

Our experience with Valdemir was excellent. He came to estimate our job and we set up a day for the work. We had him install a very intricate, heavy mahogany wall unit - all pieces (15) hang off the wall. He did a perfect job, a true craftsman. Every one who has seen the work is amazed at how great it looks. In addition he was on time, polite, professional and left the work area cleaner than he found it on arrival. A gem.

Jim was nothing short of amazing. I had a bit of a unique task which required improvisation, the right tools, and creativity given the small amount of supplies we had to work with. The end result was a higher wooden staircase railing which was exactly what I needed. Not only were his skills exceptional, but he also was extremely responsive, punctual, and was VERY fair with his pricing. It's hard finding someone you can trust to get the job done well and I've found that with Jim. Will absolutely use him again for whatever else I need and will recommend to my friends as well.

Arturo was prompt, courteous and on time. He called to confirm before he came by. He was prepared for our meeting. Once we settled on the job he completed the work promptly and on time, even though it was a holiday weekend! He came by to install the swing set seat and awning. The set looks beautiful. We are very happy with the workmanship and materials and would definitely hire Arturo again!

We contacted Global Housing with a painting project of our 2 floor home. In addition to the walls and ceilings, the painting project included various types of stubborn wood trim\moldings and doors that were previously stained. Additionally, making the project a bit more challenging was that we were already moved into the home with our furnishings and had new wood flooring previously installed. James was very responsive from the initial contact and throughout the project. Anytime there was a concern raised by us he quickly responded and handled the concern with ease. The painters themselves were extremely polite and professional. They were careful with covering the flooring and furnishings and really went above and beyond with the quality of the work and even in recommendations. Upon the completion of the project, James reassured us and encouraged us to not hesitate to contact him should we see something that we were not happy with or if something was inadvertently overlooked. We would wholeheartedly recommend Global Housing Contractors and would work with them again without hesitation. Mr. & Mrs. Rios Roselle, NJ

I take cre of veterans in my home.. wheelhouse converted a screen portch into a large bedroom and full luxury bathroom. We are extremely pleased with the result.. I constantly get compliments on the quality of the workmanship. They took 100+ year old house and made the addition look like it has always been there.. they even matched the siding that I had installed six years ago.. they framed, installed windows and doors interior and exterior french doors. As well as a full custom shower vanity and high velocity fush toilet.. in addition they built 2 custom decks with stairs and railings.. the lightning they installed looks so up to date that I am going to have them install it in other rooms in my house.. They are also going to remodel another half bath and convert my kitchen/dining room to an open concept look.. if you get a chance you should really us these guys. They are small but good and affordable... Wheelhouse rocks!!!

Waldy did a great job on my total renovation, everything from floors to wall repair, kitchen cabinets, appliances, molding, electrical, plumbing, you name it. He maintains high standards and is very understanding, always working with a customer to make changes and achieve the desired result. Couldn't give a higher recommendation, have already and will continue to refer friends and family to him.

Wayne and his crew spent weeks at our new house working on renovations. We started by hiring them for a simple paint job (and by simple I mean the interior of an entire 2,400 square foot house). We were so thrilled with the work that had been done that we hired Wayne for other renovations - floor installation, kitchen backsplash installation, and picture frame molding installation in the dining room.

We hired KI Renovations for a tiling project in our basement. It was not a straightforward job as the tiling only needed to be replaced around the perimeter after a french drain installation. KI Renovations did a great job overall, providing good value and finishing in only 1 1/2 days. Klarens and his team were professional and nice to work with. We would definitely hire them again.

I am so glad I hired Dave to do my kitchen cabinets and counter top. I have an older home, and a dated kitchen that needed updating. Dave knew when we interviewed him exactly what we needed. I interviewed 4 other contractors and they were driving me crazy with having to get my own, electrician, plumber, sheet rocker, cabinets, sink, everything. Dave has all his own people he likes to work with, and we only had to pick out tile for the backsplash, and the counter top. He even took care of getting the cabinets after bring over a few samples, that we were able to pick from. Being it's an older house, he did run into some problems, and had to do some extra work, which we were totally prepared for. It has happened before. But Dave handled it professionally and quickly, never getting mad that it was going to take some extra time. Dave worked on our kitchen as if it was his own. His attention to detail is amazing, and everything is done right the first time. I would hire Dave again in a minute for anything else I need done. I'm glad I found him on Thumbtack.

Our wood pergola had collasped on one side in our back yard. We had a plan a large outdoor party for around 100 people and needed the perguola to be repaired quickly. We called Molina's Construction corp and they showed up two hours later to assess the damage. The following day they were onsite and started the repair. They finished the job in three days and it looks great. We really appreciate the responsiveness and craftmanship Molina's Construction provided and would use them again in the future.

We highly recommend Meticulous Building and Maintenance. Robert and Kyle were wonderful to work with from start to finish. They are a family business that really cares about their customers and ensuring they are getting exactly what they want. They are professional, punctual, excellent craftsmanship, detail oriented and a pleasure to work with. They even made my two daughters feel special by always talking to them and bringing special treats. We will be using them for all our future projects!

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.
