Greivin was punctual, courteous, and knowledgable. He was also able to advise me as needed and completed the requested task in an efficient and timely manner. I'm confident in recommending him for painting jobs, but am aware of his broader skill set and plan to hire him for future carpentry and odd jobs.

Robert was the really best chose since he got all the pending works we needed done. We were originally looking for someone to work for backsplash tile in our small kitchen. However we ended up asking him the following works and he did such a great job in two days in a row including overtime to complete our requested works. 1. Backsplash tile application 2. Fixing a window blind to metal facing 3. Hanging a heavy lighting fixtures 4. Making closet shelve 5. Replacing electrical outlets 6. Replacing toilet tank accessories Basically he is a carpenter but he could do plumbing and electrical work as well. We really appreciate what he did for our place.

I recently had a tree come down in my yard. I called Dave and he made himself available to remove the tree as quickly and efficiently as possible. He is professional and talented. He was able to dice the tree, the branches, and brush and remove it off my yard with ease. It would have taken me a week to do what he did in a day and a half, and that's saying alot because I'm a builder and carpenter . I work around people like Dave everyday and he is without a doubt a top notch worker but even more important a top notch guy.

Brian's restored our broken antique rocking chair to its original condition for less than half of his repair estimate. He also fixed a variety of small (yet annoying) issues in the apartment which other carpenters were unable to fix. Has enthusiam for his work, a wide range of skills and a gentle manner. There's no categorical rating that would be high enough to encapsulate the quality of his work, or the pleasure and ease of working with him.

Felix, the owner, and his crew, met my expectations and I am a very picky customer. They arrived on-time and stayed beyond 5pm to get the job done. Felix was eager to satisfy and made sure that I was completely happy. I had Hardy Plank and AZECK material installed on my back porch. I then hired him to close an exterior door and put up crown molding. Very detailed!! I highly recommend this contractor. His prices cannot be beat, trust me! I’ve been thru several carpenters who are only interested in ripping you off. Felix is more than reasonable.

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.

Craig came to look at my fireplace the day after we first spoke. He measured, asked what i wanted done, and explained what he could do. He then came back to measure more exact and created the fireplace frame at his own home. He came back to bring the frame over, and installed it. Craig was reasonably priced and did beautiful work. We are beyond thrilled with the look of our fireplace now! (I haven’t decided what color to paint the frame, but he also offered to paint it for me.) Next time I need ANYTHING done, he’s the carpenter I’ll call! Thanks Craig!

I recently hired Dave, to install a floor and to refinish a dining room. Dave's work is amazing! He suggested different ideas for the room, and CONSULTED with me before doing it(I've had problems with other carpenter just taking upon themselves to do things that u did not authorize and got charged for it) YOU WILL NOT have that problem with Dave he is an honest and hardworking guy! The floor,paint,and materil i purchasd was very expensive & I was concerned about it not coming out perfect. However, he came to my home did an excellent job. He was extremely neat & the room came out absolutely perfect.

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

Rafal is FANTASTIC, and after our wonderful experience, we highly recommend him for your woodworking and home improvement project needs. We found Rafal via Thumbtack and hired him after meeting with him to discuss a crown molding project in our historic colonial home. Rafal's attention to detail was phenomenal, and we really appreciated his process: he listened to what we wanted to do, made some recommendations for what he thought would work best, and incorporated all of our feedback into the project. The crown molding that Rafal put up in our home came out beautifully, and the project was completed on time and on budget. Also, Rafal took care to sweep / vaccum / tidy work areas after he finished working each day. We liked Rafal's work and work ethic so much, that within a week of finishing our first project, we hired him for two additional projects: replacing the shoe molding throughout our house and converting an existing washroom / laundry / closet to a different configuration with some upgrades. We have been extremely pleased with ALL of the work and the attention to detail that Rafal has. We look forward to hiring him for our kitchen renovation when funds permit!!

Luis Rolon refinished our basement. We added a full bath, a bedroom and play area. He did the framing and drywall and painting as well as other carpenter work, and the basement looks beautiful. He also made a window seat for us upstairs and it looks like it fits in perfectly.

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

    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.
