Ragini Parekh says, "This is the third time I am using GMATT builders for renovation, and this is the largest and most extensive renovation I have done to date. I am extremely happy with the work that I have received on all three of my renovations with GMATT builders. The first renovation that I had with GMAT builder was at my previous house, it was a roof replacement. The second renovation that I had with him was the installation of a very large picture window at my first house. Both jobs were done within the time frame that Mr Gomez had advised, and they were done very well.For my most recent renovation, which was the extension of the back of the house, with an addition of approximately 350 ft, plus a new kitchen, plus a new laundry room, shower, and a new pressure treated deck that is approximately 360 ft. After getting bids from multiple contractors, I once again contacted Mr Gomez for a bid. His bid was competitive with the range that had been proposed to me, and having worked with him over a time frame of 20 years gave me the confidence to go ahead with him on this job, the largest job to date.His work is excellent. The building of a crawl space, new exterior walls, roof, finished walls and floor, installation of porcelain tile floors, installation of the shower, installation of a skylight as well as several windows and two doors, the installation of my cabinetry, including the crown molding on the cabinetry, installation of the lighting, and last but not least of all the installation of a 4,000 lb steel beam to hold up the entire second floor of my house have all been done very nicely. Mr Gomez is on the site almost every single day, And he does much of the work himself, along with his employees. I find that he brings the same employees time and again, so I feel confident in knowing that he has trained and supervised them well, and is not the type of contractor who has a part-time crew working for him intermittently, which is one of those things that we are told to watch out for. I felt very confident leaving him at the home to do the work while I went to work myself, knowing that the work would be done properly.Mr Gomez is receptive to my inquiries, and answers all of my questions very patiently. He addressed all of my concerns. I have been very happy with the overall work. I did have some issues with my heat, some heat loss, some issues with the tile work and the trim work that were noticed after the completion of the job, and he has been very attentive to taking care of all of those needs.If ever I need to have another small or a large renovation done, I would not hesitate to contact Mr Gomez again. I have been using him for several smaller jobs over the last 20 years as well, not including these three larger jobs, and have always had a positive experience with him.Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Please take a look at my finished kitchen.Thank you Javier! You rock!"See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.
