I have an older house and none of the bedroom doors closed properly. After getting a quote, we hired Walter and he started work two days later. He was very professional and fixed every door perfectly. We will hire him for future projects around our house. I highly recommend him for any carpentry projects you have at your house.

We hired G & M Carpentry to paint our second bedroom. The painter arrived right on time and worked quickly and efficiently. He was very sweet and polite. We loved the finished product. Extremely satisfied and will use them again in the future.

When I began my search for a professional who did carpentry there were two crucial things that I was looking for. The first was someone who had photos of their professional work and reviews from previous customers. After receiving three responses for my project Kezo Maintenance Management (Jim) stood out as he met those criteria’s. Jim initially installed two slab doors, one for a bedroom and the other for my bathroom. Jim did a great job and based on that I inquired if he was able to work on other projects that I needed throughout my apartment. Jim was able to give great feedback on all of the materials that I needed for the next project. Furthermore all of his suggestions was tailored to the needs of my apartment space and color schemes. Some of the things that Jim worked on was installing a vanity, medicine cabinet, towel rack, and shower rod in my bathroom. In addition to installing sliding doors for my hallway closet and another slab door for another closet. For my kitchen Jim installed my new faucet, and wall tiles. Jim was extremely professional and on time each day. I would most definitely hire Jim in the future for future home improvement projects.

As contractor, I am very demanding. But for this time, I left this work to Global Housing Corp. They made an amazing job with my house. I checked all details and I recognized the excellent work made by them. Electrical, plumbing, carpentry are renovated totally. Of course, I have to recommend this service for who want to change its house. They provided the best service. You won’t regret to hire them.

Tom's team did an outstanding job at painting very high contemporary ceiling rooms. Patched ceiling cracks and smoothed out ceiling issues from previous non-TNS work. He did creative carpentry work to fix problems with a hall corner wall, hole in bath wall and deck board that had rot. Fixed kitchen cabinet drawer that did not work. Great communication and execution. Hard workers, that were very accommodating of my schedule and my dogs. Great experience

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.

David at Lazarus Paint and Carpentry was wonderful to work with. I had to reschedule a couple times and he was very flexible regarding my availability. He seems to be a perfectionist so needless to say I'm very happy with his work and will definitely be calling upon him and/or his company again in the future.

Carmine was a professional. Easy to communicate with, punctual, the quality of work was perfect and the price was fair. I will definitely hire him next time we need carpentry done in our house. He built us a built in bookcase that covers a pipe and it turned out exactly as we had envisioned.

We had complete wall painting plus building two large wall-to-wall library shelvings in a 3 bedroom apartment in Bronxville. The work was done quite professionally and according to our specific instructions. Mr Luis and his co-workers were prompt, very pleasant and trustworthy, and careful regarding their working areas and carpentry space; neat and clean. The cost was reasonable. For our future fixes we will most likely go back to them.

I highly recommend Carlos for any home improvement project that you need-----whether it is large or small. He is a meticulous craftsman and general contractor, and has done beautiful carpentry, wonderful tile work and lovely bathroom renovations including sinks, faucets, vanities and granite counter tops. My favorite renovation involved my kitchen. He removed all existing cabinets and appliances, and installed an excuisite kitchen which included cabinets, sink and faucet, appliances, painting and tile.. I know when I contract Carlos to do a job, he will be a pleasure to work with, and the job will be done neatly and impeccably, in a reasonable time frame, and with a fair price. I am very fussy, so I know you will be thrilled with any project that you give him..

John was really great at communicating back and forth with me through thumbtack and I felt assured that I had picked the right professional. He arrived right on time at the time we arranged, maybe even a little earlier. He was very patient with us as the shed wasn’t exactly paint ready and he went above and beyond to bring our shed back to life by replacing a few rotted boards and even rebuilding both entire doors. His painting was very neat and we are very happy with the outcome. We are saving Johns number for future projects! Definitely choose him for your carpentry and paint jobs. A+++

There is no job too big or too small for Henry and his team. They did a great job on my front door, and saved me money on the project. He did such a great job that I hired him to renovate my master bathroom, introducing a double vanity and installing medicine cabinets throughout the house. He also installed new flooring in my foyer, and performed carpentry throughout the house on wooden counters and molding. Henry also solved a plumbing problem after a plumber i had hired failed to do so, and also performed follow up remediation on the carpet that had been affected. I will definitely be calling Henry first for my next construction project.

I needed a new front door. He was able to buy a standard door and customize it to fit the frame of my doorway. He was responsive and professional, and the quality of his work was excellent work at a good price. I would definitely work with him again for other house projects.

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.
