Greivin is a very reliable, honest and responsive contractor who did a great job at repainting our house. I offered him the job after he submitted the best bid among 4 contractors to paint my 1340 sq feet house in Hoboken. My walls were painted in dark colors with different rooms having different colors and we were shifting to all white - he did a great job that needed four coats and also agreed to repair our wooden floor in a small corner for no extra cost. He has done a great and timely job - in a condo building, he did the job with no disturbance to neighbors. Highly recommended.

The shelves and wardrobes which we needed to be disassembled/assembled and fixed were all settled in an excellent way. Very precise work and great working mentality. Thanks a lot again for your outstanding work. Should we need a carpenter again we would definitely get back to you!!

Glenn Scelza is a godsend. My old friend desperately needed help of a good carpenter to come and assess the benign neglect on the front of her antique home. Garage doors needed to be installed post haste, but the garage door company needed the repairs to be made first. I posted on Thumbtack and Glenn responded immediately. Glenn arrived and I could tell right away what a nice guy he is and is a seasoned carpenter/contractor. He assessed the project with a trained eye and zeroed in on what was good in terms of the construction and what looked bad to us, was very doable indeed.. He was very resourceful and made use of what could remain and shopped locally which I loved, for lumber, gutters, leaders and even found the novelty clapboard pieces to match the 1940's facade. He was very fair and open about what things would cost along with his craftsmanship which was worth every penny. I appreciate he could even work with us so late in the season even as winter weather set in. He will be present right after the holiday weekend to connect with the garage door people. When those vintage looking doors are installed the place will regain its curb appeal once again, thanks to Glenn. This guy is a keeper and I can see why is highly recommended! I add my recommendation to Thumbtack as well as our neighbors in the community. I look forward in working with Glenn on future projects. Thanks Glenn! Norm Peekskill, NY

We had an awesome experience with Zoltan. He was on time and got everything done with our cabinet in an excellent way. His experience as a carpenter is also a plus - so he's not just good with assembly, mounting, etc. but he also thinks right & creatively with the steps/work that he does. I will certainly recommend Zoltan to family & friends and use his help/services again in the future. Nice job!

Dan is the man. Whereas I am sure he tires of hearing that, it is accurate. He is a clever carpenter, polite gentleman and fastidious worker. He is capable of handling large projects, but also does not shun the simple request. I really appreciated his prompt communication and his fair estimations. I would highly recommend Dan and will certainly enlist him again.

We interviewed about 5 different carpenters for our custom built-in bookcase with cabinets, and hired Mauricio because of the quality of his work and professionalism. He was always quick to respond to questions and made great suggestions. He completely got what we wanted aesthetically and the final product is gorgeous. I've already recommended him to a few friends.

I met Hugo through a referral so I had never met him before. He was very professional and I could tell immediately that he really cared about his craft. He took his time and really thought areas of the project through. Over the nearly 2 month project I got to know him well. He was an excellent carpenter, responsible, reliable, trustworthy and creative. I would absolutely recommend him and will definitely be calling him again in the near future for more projects.

Pierre did a an extremely professional and thorough job of completely remodeling our cottage bathroom. This involved replacing everything down to the wall studs - installing the insulation, new dry wall, wiring, tiling walls and floor, putting in new bath tub, building a cabinet and sink stand from scratch, redoing a closet, putting in a new door, connecting the plumbing and installing all fittings, mirror, towel racks ... the works. Pierre did all of the purchasing of materials, she worked closely with us on finding the tiles and colors we liked and worked on the place while we were overseas. The new bathroom looks gorgeous and gives some class to the cottage. My wife and I found Pierre to be an all round builder, carpenter, re-modeler with a thorough knowledge of codes and proper procedures. Plus she has good taste. Pierre is totally trustworthy and easy to work with, very relaxed working with a range of people across different culture and we would strongly recommend her - you won't regret it.

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

I am a interior designer in New York. I hired Innovators to renovate a one bedroom for a client in a top co-op building in NYC. The building had strict guidelines for any alterations. Edward and his crew were very careful to follow the building regulations and rules which is very important when working on many of the buildings in NY. Innovators has a great pull of skilled workmen and sub contractors. Many of his workers are multi-skilled and professional. We are at the end of the renovations and are please with the outcome. We will use Innovators again in future projects. Giselle Ulmo Giselle Ulmo Design

If I could get Steve 10 stars, I would. He took on the job of making me a small radiator cover for my bathroom, where other handyman/carpenters would not. It's like they couldn't be bothered. But this job didn't bother Steve at all. He gave us a price, and measured, came back and made a template, and the next week it was done and installed. It's perfection. Rounded edges, straight lines, and stained a good color. I would call him again anytime.

Olman and his team were very easy to work with. His estimates were always very concise and easy to relate to. His pricing was very competitive and the quality of work was normally very good. The team arrived when he/they said they would and they always tried hard to execute the job with customer(my) satisfaction in mind. Any small 'fix ups' were dealt with very quickly to request. I would have no hesitation in recommending this team (and already have) to anyone who asked for a reference.

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.
