Steve is an excellent carpenter and has many other skills as well. He recently put in a small, cast iron wood stove in my kitchen. He made what I thought was going to be a long and painful project go efficiently and smoothly. Included an exterior chimney that meant cutting a hole through the wall. Steve did a beautiful job, and I am so pleased.

Water damage in the living room was the job. It took a while because of type of job to be done. The carpenter and painter were great. Thomas explained things in a way you could understand. Quality of work excellent. Only promble I had was not being informed or called about time. Infact, I have hired Amore Builders to do a few more jobs.

Adam stood out among a group of people I interviewed for a mold/water issue within my garage (caused by improper exterior flashing and carpenter ants). He stuck to his timeline, did not over promise & kept a clean workspace; in addition to being fairly priced and transparent. Adam was honest and responsive to my questions prior, during and after the repairs were completed. He even met with the insurance adjuster when I could not. Adam certainly went the extra mile, and I look forward to working with him again.

I needed the exposed wood from my roof covered because carpenter bees were tearing it up. I wanted it to be white and metal. Butchy, gave me a way better price than another company and the work was superb. He did it all in a day and my house looks great.

Jay was detailed, hard working, willing to work hard at whatever task I put in front of him. After just a few days of working with Jay I felt confident enough in his character to leave him in my home for hours. Jay is a good and honest man. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a top notch carpenter.

I found Phil to be an excellent carpenter to do the work I needed around my house. We had a number of tasks requiring more expertise than I was capable of doing on my own. He was always very punctual, communicated clearly, explained what was required to do the work, very professional in the quality of his work, and completed the projects within the time line established and was very reasonable with his rates. He comes fully equipped with tools and experience to tackle any problem we had. He was patient answering my questions and listened well when I had them. It is obvious he enjoys what he does and takes pride in his work. I will definitely hire him again if the need arises. I recommend him without any reservations.

Jerry is a superb master carpenter, a jack of all trades, and a great construction site supervisor. We have hired him repeatedly for both residential and commercial projects. Because we know Jerry we have taken on some projects we never would have otherwise. He's that good!

Chip is a "master" of many skills. In working on our 1800's house, he has brought it up to code, as well as kept its original integrity/flavor. He enjoys challenges and pays attention to details. We are very proud of all the work he has done on our home, both inside and out.

Often I read these reviews and assume they are biased. We'll let me say upfront that I am Kevin's brother. However, being in the construction field I would never vouch for someone I didn't feel was qualified to do a job. Being much younger than Kevin I worked for him in my 20's and learned a lot of basics from him. He doesn't cut corners, he doesn't cob it together. He does great work in all phases of construction. It's rare to find someone talented enough to not only frame and run block but also be a finish carpenter. I can do many things but I'm not sure I can do any of them as well as Kevin. Kevin told me once "any asshole can frame a house".. and that's the truth.. but I want someone who's going to do it right.. and that's Kevin Conley

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.
