Jason was wonderful, he responded to my request quickly and was able to repair my faucet the same day. He arrived on time and even cleaned up afterwards. All professional handymen should be like him, a real gem.

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.

Rick is awesome. He came over and just helped work through a whole bunch of custom problems that I needed taken care of. He also creatively helped me with an Ikea hack that made my desk way more useful and better looking. Will be calling on him again shortly. He was on time, polite, neat and reasonably priced.

Working with Jim was a great experience. He was very communicative and responsive and went out of his way to do a great job on custom shelving we wanted made. The work product was awesome. He also just seemed like a good guy and was a pleasure to deal with. We hope to have another reason to work with Jim again.

Arturo reglued and reupholstered 8 antique chairs, which were very unstable and in a couple cases broken (we had the pieces). He and his crew did a great job on them all, and in a timely way. I highly recommend him.

My experience with contractors, including this company, is that you have to have patience. When a job has multiple areas of concentration (electrical, plumbing, carpentry, etc.), there may be different people doing each service; which means that everything is dependent upon each person doing their service in a timely manner, otherwise possible delays. Also, most contractors have multiple job sites where their people are rotated where needed. Since no one can predict a problem will occur, this also causes delays in getting a project completed. All of this is the nature of the job. As I mentioned before, try to have patience. Renovation projects can be frustrating and sometimes upsetting; but if everything is done correctly with minimal errors, the most important thing is that you are happy with the skills provided and the quality of the work completed.

We had a great experience with Corniel Construction. We had an unusual project - adding a shower to an existing tub-only configuration. It's an older home with plaster walls so we wanted an external solution versus breaking open the walls. Waldy was able to create, build, and install a cost-effective custom solution that met all of our needs, including a very sturdy surround shower curtain rod. The shower works great, and we don't have to worry about moisture getting on the non-moisture proof walls. Waldy and his partner were able to do all this in one day, and on short notice. They cleaned up after themselves and were extremely friendly, courteous, hard-working, and professional. We recommend them highly! Thanks again, Waldy!

Got a brand new roof installed, it looks very nice and was done quickly (took just 2 days). The workers who did the roof were nice guys and worked very hard in tremendous heat. I have no complaints about the work done. However, the manager Edison... that is a different story. I am not going to leave a bad review ONLY because I feel bad for the workers and don't want them to lose their source of income by not being hired again. It is not their fault that they have a horrible boss. Edison truly needs to re-think his interaction with customers and maybe take some courses on effective communication, responsiveness, anger management, and honesty. When I originally wrote this review in Word, it was about 2.5 pages, but I decided to be the bigger person and just let it go. Edison - I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you can treat future customers better than you treated me.

Mario was the project manager for the gut renovation of my townhouse. He is very professional, manages his own staff and subcontractors well and is a skilled carpenter. He is always considerate and does whatever is necessary to make sure the job is done correctly. I highly recommend him. Jane Sanders, Architect

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.
