Mike has done quite a few projects around the house for us starting with a minor repair of our front steps which needed some mortar work to enclosing our porch which was previously only screened in. We asked Mike to give us some ideas and we decided to do a partial enclosure with storm windows. Mike did all the woodwork and framing to make it a 3 season room, installed fan, painted---basically did it all. Quality of work was excellent and mike is a pleasure to work with. if he says he's showing up, he'll be there. more importantly, mike goes above and beyond fixing little things he sees without additional charge. great quality, great price, great guy. in fact, he also helped us in a somewhat emergency situation when we found water leaking behind our kitchen wall. Mike came right over to assess the problem and fixed it in a timely manner. you wont be disappointed

I had a BIG powerwashing job: 2story home, white pvc fencing with moss and mold along with trex decking and belgian blue pavers on the front porch. The job was done with great attention to detail and care. The outcome is majestic: gleaming white soffits, pavers like new as well as sealed and sanded, decking fresh and house aglow! A FULL day of work for 2 guys that brought their equipment, set up, did the job and were courteous and gracious. I would recommend 100%. Now, I hired them for painting. An excellent value and easy electronic payment. These are the guys for any job! Even my neighbor came out and hired them too. You will be as impressed as I am. Stunning!!

Luis was a fantastic find! He is professionalism, knowledgeable, creative and a good value. He did an amazing job with the fence and made the yard a completely enclosed fortress for my puppy, and came up with a very creative solution for replacing very old Custom railings on my 115 year old house with a modern, sturdy and safe replacement that looks like the original porch railings! Can’t say enough good things about him. Definitely hire him. Hurley recommended. Bonus: he’s a super nice, friendly guy too!

Tom was very prompt and professional. His crew were nice, competent and tidy. His price was appropriate. He communicated in a timely way. Tom was able to assist in design ideas. I hired him for 2 paint jobs and ended up having him return for interior porcelain tiling and a brick porch repair. I highly recommend TNS.

Carlos and his team were prompt, efficient and professional. They painted our wood siding and front and back porches, including a complicated Victorian gingerbread-style porch. They also repaired some rotted window sills and added missing trim. I appreciated Carlos' clear communication throughout the project, and attention to detail. And our house looks fantastic!

I initially contacted Shawn for a small job, but after meeting him I and discussing some other bigger projects I was preparing to do, I ended up hiring for all the repair and remodeling work I needed. Shawn and his team replaced the roof, demolished and rebuilt a wrap-around front porch entirely, put in a new paver patio and underground pvc drain pipes, and replaced all the gutters and downspouts. Shawn also built a custom cabinet door in the kitchen. Everything was well done, and any changes or modifications I asked for were done without hesitation. Shawn is an honest and down to earth guy, and is able to handle all types of home remodeling needs. He is always available to answer any questions, and responded to any issues or changes I asked for right away. You feel like you have a friend working with you, and not just a businessman. This shows in the great job Shawn and is team does. I would certainly hire Shawn again for future work.

I am very happy with the work done on my house and would recommend All Remodeling without hesitation. We had a big job... new siding, gutters, new front porch, re-framing porch roof and extending the overhang, new columns and railing, (2) new stairs and a installing a new font door with sidelights. They were super courteous and conscientious and always willing to do all those extra little things you don't think of or can foresee. Their pricing is very reasonable and Rick and Manual are an absolute pleasure to work with.

Kamil was great to deal with . He was very responsive , punctual but most importantly he is one of the most honest decent tradesman I have ever worked with. Even after he was paid we called him back to look at how certain areas of our porch had dried. He agreed that it should have another coat of stain which he promptly put on and refused to take any further payment. The final product is great. It was a good value as well. We will definitely have Kamil and his company back to do further work at our house.

I highly recommend Vivax for any home remodel or work project. Vitaliy has gone above and beyond on a recent home project which included total gut renovations of 2 bathrooms, rebuilding an enclosed screened in porch, painting and drainage/foundation remediation. His workers did a meticulous and great job by paying close attention to the details. His carpenters did a fantastic job rebuilding cabinetry and showed many years of experience and excellent craftsmanship. They were also very professional and reliable. My family and I are very pleased with their work product and are enjoying our 'new' bathrooms and porch. Jamal Davis

Replaced wooden steps to my front porch and painted the railings. I'm very satisfied with the end result. The workmen put in extra effort to replace hard to reach planks to make sure the surfaces were level and safe. The work was completed promptly at a reasonable cost.

I received a response from Richard immediately. We set up a time the next morning (because it was already after 5pm when I sent the request through Thumbtack) for him to pick up the window frame, replace the glass, and install the window. He kept me informed along the way because I was at work when he replaced the window (on my front porch). I also needed assistance finding a replacement frame for another window. Although, he didn't have the replacement frame he found a shop that did have what I needed. Richard was very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend him to a friend and use his company for any future projects.

Sal, Luis and the rest of Jason's crew did a great job repairing the sagging roof and tilting walls of my detached garage as well as repairing the structural issues with - and staining/sealing - both my front porch and back deck. Their prep and cleanup were efficient and thoughtful. They even moved all the heavy furniture out of and back in my garage the day they repaired it! I will definitely use Liberty again for my future major home projects.

Very very thorough with everything! Good job!

    Hey these guys did a great job repairing my old porch. I didn't think it was salvageable. And the price was very fair. I got other quotes that were $500 to $1,000 higher. that do the right job at a great price

    Juan and his team did an amazing job with our front porch. He swapped out the weathered wood floor to a composite material. We ordered our materials per Juan’s suggestion and he picked everything up for us. His Calculations of how much we would need were just right, so we did not have any waste! He also scrapped and painted out front porch posts and railings and got them looking fresh and new again. He hauled away all of our old decking materials and kept the projected area neat and clean. Juan took the time to make sure everything was exact and level, even adding extra support at the base of our porch posts. As promised at the start of our project, Juan was in and out in 2 days! We will definitely call Juan for future projects on our home.

    This is a genuine review. Eric and his crew did a fabulous job in completely updating our 107 year old porch with new T&G ipe flooring, railings and balusters. Not an easy job but they made it look easy They also reinforced the floor joists after realizing it was necessary. Couldn't have asked for a better contractor. Very knowledgeable due to his years of experience, honest and up front about any details, and easy to communicate with. He and his crew tackled the project right away, putting in full days, and were fast and meticulous in completing it. We were very happy with the finished product--it was beyond our expectations. And his estimate was very reasonable. I would definitely hire him again for any remodeling or home construction project. I didn't know of him before he contacted me through Thumbtack, but we were very pleasantly surprised with whom we got after having to deal with contractors on previous jobs that gave us the run around or cut corners etc. can't highly recommend him enough.

    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.
