I was extremely satisfied with the 2 men handling my back yard clean up project. They were friendly, came with smiles, showed professionalism and came when they said they would. The job was a good value and I will be hiring them again for some inside carpentry and small project work in the near future.

Valdemir was extremely professional and proficient at the job. He was nice enough to go out to the hardware store and get all the things that were missing. He also ensured the materials he used were suitable and seemed to be very knowledgeable.

Matt detached 2 bathroom sink faucets before stone counters were installed and returned to install new faucets which I had chosen at the store. The faucets didn't fit and Matt shopped for me quite a distance away at Lowe's. He sent me photos on my cell phone and chose perfect faucets. My friends have all remarked on the beautiful faucets. He almost didn't charge me for his shopping expedition but I insisted on paying him for the time and effort he took. The plumbing was excellent and he worked with me on the scheduling -- the stone counter installation date was changed 3 times. Matt cheerfully went with the flow. He was very good with my dog and cats as well. He is definitely my plumber.

Herson Lopez and his team executed three projects simultaneously for us: re-roofing our house, a complete exterior paint job, and the re-building of our front porch. Their work was excellent, and the end results look terrific. More importantly, though, was the fact that all the work was completed on-time and on-budget. In addition, Herson was personally involved in project oversight, and he took the time to communicate with us on a regular basis as work progressed. I highly recommend Herson, and I will gladly rely on him for future work!

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.

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.

Glenn built a beautiful deck for our family. The wood is Ipe and Cedar, difficult material to work with, but Glenn knew what he was doing. A real pro. He takes his work very seriously and always asked us for our opinions before doing something. He was totally great about making sure we were happy with the final results and made any change we requested. He also showed up every day and early to get a head start on the work and finished on time. I would hire Glenn again to do any other carpentry or home project I have.

I’m very impressed with their work! They made our old, falling apart deck look like new. Their prices were reasonable and their work impeccable. I would definitely recommend this company to others and use their services for carpentry and painting again.

Deuel is one of the most “Professional” Contractors I’ve encountered in a very long time. We hired him to restore the Canopy for entrance to our home – he did such an amazing, and exact detailed job; we hired him to complete the finishings of our new custom designed driveway. He produced another master-price painting job; adding exceptional finishings to our custom designed divider/planter wall and finished off with painting Front & Garage Door. I’m very particular about detail, organization, finishings and clean-up… Deuel nails it. We’re so impressed with his “Craftsmanship” we’re planning to use him exclusively for an addition we are adding to our home… he’s an excellent Carpenter/Painter/Handyman/Contractor and only time will expose his limitless expertise…we highly recommend Deuel!

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+++

I would like to highly recommend the general contractor who handled my townhouse’s third remodeling and renovation project, Mr. Mario Bissessar, owner and principal of City Line Interiors, Inc. The job project went extremely smoothly and was completed in a highly professional, efficient manner; I am very pleased with both the process and the beautiful results. The project was multi-faceted, complicated -as any remodeling entails- including a lot of details, involving multiple building sectors such as plumbing, electrical, HVAC, windows, tiling and paintings, metal work, having to respect landmark rules and blending with the existing structure. The crew led by Mario was very cohesive, punctual, talented, productive, flexible and friendly. His team is fluent in English (with a variety of charming Caribbean accents). Mario is very responsive, an excellent communicator and a great team leader. He was there every day, not only overseeing the work but very much hands-on, with precious skills, including carpentry. Mario also contributed great design ideas and judicious trouble-shooting solutions. Of course, I made several last minute changes or additions, which inflated the original budget but the corresponding charges were well itemized, justified and very reasonable. The payment schedule was without surprises and always well timed. It does not hurt that Mario is also an IT wizard…. All his subcontractors (electricity, plumbing, HVAC and metal work) were fantastic: they delivered diligently on the promised dates. It makes a big difference when subcontractors are well coordinated; they obviously knew and respected each other well, and were happy to work with Mario Bissessar.

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.
