Roof tear off and replacement of plywood. Replacement of 3 skylights on enclosed porch. JV did offered a good price, was in regular contact on status, and completed the work when he said he was going to. That's all you can ask for. He also allowed me to buy the skylights myself so I didn't have to pay a markup on them, and he helped me ensure I had the right measurements. You can't ask for much better.

George followed through from beginning to end and did what he said he would when he said he would do it. Very, very satisfied with the pruning of barberries, hollies, viburnum and some other tree trimming. Very fairly priced, too. Don't hesitate to call him. George

I had a great experience working with Brian's Custom Remodeling. In addition to painting every square inch of the ceilings, walls and trim of my entire home, Brian graciously took on the numerous other projects I asked him to complete while he was in my home painting. He was great at communicating project status, providing options, and taking initiative to fix problems so I didn't have to. I'll absolutely hire Brian again.

I hired Justin Krocke, owner of NEED A HAND to build a patio in front of my house. Justin took the time to speak with me on several occasions in person, over the phone and via text to discuss a variety of ideas for the final design. This experience was all new to me so Justin explained the process to me so the end result would be exactly what I wanted. I can say with 200% certainity, I now have a gorgeous patio beyond my imagination!! I am extremely grateful that he presented so many great design and material suggestions and continuously stressed he was only interested in building what “I” would be totally happy with when it was finished. The patio came out beautifully – much more than I had originally pictured in my head. Justin and his crew are all very professional, personable, extremely efficient, dependable and dedicated to the work they perform. I’ve had numerous people compliment my new patio and ask for Justin’s information. I strongly recommended they contact Justin for any projects they needed done because he is exceptionally talented and quite versatile to handle a wide range of projects. I am confident Justin will be my “GO TO GUY” when I “NEED A HAND”. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Justin Krocke, NEED A HAND, and his entire team.

We need someone for multiple projects that were long overdue. Randy did a great job on the built in upstairs by the window and the mudroom bench, and he exceeded my expectations in the laundry room. However, we originally requested a quote to include the replacement of our fire door and multiple closet doors, and despite much back and forth, these were not done (but for a couple of doors that do not look great downstairs). We spent far more than we planned for projects that remain undone. He never returned to repair the mudroom trim he removed and somehow our radiant floor in the mudroom was damaged during the bench or door installation.

We hired SPB to do a patio in our backyard. Even though Sean ran in to many problems along the way (because of our land) he was able to create a beautiful patio. We were very pleased with his and his crew's work and would definitely hire them again!

We were in desperate need of a total bathroom remodel (complete tear out of drywall, tub, etc.). BatesRestoration came in and saved us from a huge disaster. They did a great job on the drywall and installing the new tub and all the fixtures. Thank you (and my husband thanks you for saving him from having to do it!).

We hired Tim to install a marble backsplash in our kitchen. I called Tim and explained how we were short on time and needed the work done asap. He came by, gave a very fair quote and started the prep work the same day. The final product looks incredible, we couldn't be more happy. Working with Tim was a pleasure, he is friendly, professional, dependable, and explains the work he will be doing to ensure it is exactly what the customer wants. I would not hesitate to hire Tim for another job in the future!

Dave did an excellent job on our master bath - I love it! He added so much functionality by removing a wall which allowed us to have two vanities. The shower is huge and the tile work is beautiful. We would definitely hire Finger Lakes Custom Renovations again.

I specialize in drywall and overall home remodeling, especially basement finishing and remodeling. I have over 15 years of experience in the business, and I am a perfectionist in everything that I do. There is no project that is too big or too small. I work with house flippers on a regular basis to turn run-down homes and those that just need a little TLC into something beautiful. Most of the growth of my business has been through word of mouth as I have established a good reputation in the Rochester area. My prices are reasonable, and I can create custom projects to accommodate your budget. I am trustworthy and fully insured.


I offer interior painting, minor repairs and some carpentry. I have over 25 years of experience working on remodels and new builds. I have basic knowledge of stick-building structures.

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.
