We had a porch cover added on to our house. We are extremely happy with how quick the project went from start to finish. Very happy with the look and quality of the project. Albert and his crew showed up when they said they would, and did great work. We could not be happier with the way this project and the under taking of it ended up. It was money well spent. I highly recommend Albert and his crew for any projects that might arise. Great Job Albert,we look forward to using you again in the future!

I will definitely be a repeat customer. Brian was fantastic! I had three electrical projects I wanted completed, garage door electrical button, ceiling fan installed in back porch ceiling and electrical receptacle box installed in back yard for a fountain. Brian was on time, efficient, meticulous and cleaned up the project areas. Could I ask for more…he also had a fair price. Thanks Brian, now on to my next list of projects.

Working with Rusty Hammer Construction has been a real pleasure. Let me tell you about my job. A full bathroom remodel was needed but I only wanted to contract for the shower and floor. I was going to complete the remainder of the bathroom myself. Brendon showed up on time and was able to give us a quote for the job requested. He listened to our ideas without interruptions and offered great suggestions when we asked for them. Because of his experience, we were able to make better decisions on the choices we wanted. The job was quoted to take 5 days which was right on track. This is because he knows what he is doing and he shows up on time. While on the job, he was very focused on the job and didn't waste any time. Very impressed with his work ethic and trusted him without supervision. Five days later, we ended up with a great bathroom and he exceeded my expectations. The quote he provided was right on with no changes or surprises. My wife and I are looking forward to using him again in the near future for bedroom floors, porch construction and other various projects I need help with. I consider myself handy, but he puts a whole new level to "handyman". Thank you for making our bathroom prefect. Bill P. S. Our dog misses you. :)

We had a concrete slab pored in our back yard. We're going to use it as our porch area. The slab looks great with no flaws. Workers were very knowledgeable. We will definitely use them in the future.

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.
