Marty Klein installed crown moldings in our home's bedrooms and baths; the work came out the way one would expect a professional carpenter's work to come out--exceptionally nice. If you need a pro carpenter Marty Klein has very fair prices and very fine work--recommended!

Greivin constucted a custom garden box that had a bit of complexity because it had to hide an unsightly platform on my patio. It was excellent work and as importantly he was consistently communicating with me and my wife and very good at setting expectations and following through as promised.

I recently had a tree come down in my yard. I called Dave and he made himself available to remove the tree as quickly and efficiently as possible. He is professional and talented. He was able to dice the tree, the branches, and brush and remove it off my yard with ease. It would have taken me a week to do what he did in a day and a half, and that's saying alot because I'm a builder and carpenter . I work around people like Dave everyday and he is without a doubt a top notch worker but even more important a top notch guy.

It’s been a pleasure meeting Juan. He was really easy to communicate with, resourceful, very knowledgeable and really fast in his work. Very reasonable in his pricing too. I will be definitely scheduling him for more projects in the coming months. Such a pleasant surprise in a plethora of mediocre handymen!

I hired Bob (A&B Home Expert) to do a challenging fence repair right after a snow/sleet storm. This just wasn't a regular repair because it was on a slop, snow had built up and then became a frozen sheet of ice and the fallen section pulled down the post. Bob came the day after I was contacted so that was a big plus because I have a dog that could have run away threw the fallen section. Bob completed the job with expertise! Did a fantastic job in a very timely fashion. I would strongly recommend him to anyone! I will be using Bob on future projects! As a side note, Thumbtack is a great way to make contact with local contractors. I had a great experience using Thumbtack!

Thorough, high quality, attention to detail, friendly, timely and excellently priced...these are just some of the qualities of Thiago Pelisson and his team! I was searching for a contractor to power wash and paint/stain house, decks and porch for my mother. She is not accustomed to hiring and as a widow and senior citizen, she was anxious about the finding/hiring process. Her house has cedar shingles, many damaged due to weather & woodpeckers! I contacted Thiago and he promptly got back to me to set up time to meet my mom & see the house to provide an estimate. My mom was SO impressed! Thiago was friendly and took time to take thorough look at the home. He listened to my mom, answered questions and gave her a great sense of comfort and confidence. He provided a detailed quote that including carpenter work, power washing, and materials at excellent price. His team arrived and they were all friendly, efficient, hard working and quality work! The prep work they did on the house to ensure paint didn't get on windows, doors, even the doorbell went WAY beyond expectations! Attention to detail was incredible - every nook was covered. Thiago came to the home twice during the project (approximately 4 days for all phases) to ensure quality. He even had carpenter return to fix area on chimney that she didn't even know had rotted - and he didn't jack up the price to have it done. The house looks great and it was a relief to trust Thiago and his crew. I've recommended him to friends, as has my mom and will hire him again without hesitation!

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.

Felix, the owner, and his crew, met my expectations and I am a very picky customer. They arrived on-time and stayed beyond 5pm to get the job done. Felix was eager to satisfy and made sure that I was completely happy. I had Hardy Plank and AZECK material installed on my back porch. I then hired him to close an exterior door and put up crown molding. Very detailed!! I highly recommend this contractor. His prices cannot be beat, trust me! I’ve been thru several carpenters who are only interested in ripping you off. Felix is more than reasonable.

Joe's articulate, specialty, creative craftsmanship has made my house a home. With all of my intracasies, attention to detail and extensive out-of-the-box projects, Joe has always been patient and fun to work with. He takes the time to look at every angle & corner and provide guidance & advice in areas I never even thought to look. His meticulous nature and well thought-out mindset is why I would never trust another carpenter to touch my home. I've been partnering with Joe for 4 years now and have made numerous recommendations for him, and half my block has used his services to unbelievable satisfaction. I highly recommend Joe to anyone, and still have a laundry list of projects for him to complete!

I recently hired Dave, to install a floor and to refinish a dining room. Dave's work is amazing! He suggested different ideas for the room, and CONSULTED with me before doing it(I've had problems with other carpenter just taking upon themselves to do things that u did not authorize and got charged for it) YOU WILL NOT have that problem with Dave he is an honest and hardworking guy! The floor,paint,and materil i purchasd was very expensive & I was concerned about it not coming out perfect. However, he came to my home did an excellent job. He was extremely neat & the room came out absolutely perfect.

I highly recommend Vivax for any home remodel or work project. Vitaliy has gone above and beyond on a recent home project which included total gut renovations of 2 bathrooms, rebuilding an enclosed screened in porch, painting and drainage/foundation remediation. His workers did a meticulous and great job by paying close attention to the details. His carpenters did a fantastic job rebuilding cabinetry and showed many years of experience and excellent craftsmanship. They were also very professional and reliable. My family and I are very pleased with their work product and are enjoying our 'new' bathrooms and porch. Jamal Davis

Luis Rolon refinished our basement. We added a full bath, a bedroom and play area. He did the framing and drywall and painting as well as other carpenter work, and the basement looks beautiful. He also made a window seat for us upstairs and it looks like it fits in perfectly.

I am a interior designer in New York. I hired Innovators to renovate a one bedroom for a client in a top co-op building in NYC. The building had strict guidelines for any alterations. Edward and his crew were very careful to follow the building regulations and rules which is very important when working on many of the buildings in NY. Innovators has a great pull of skilled workmen and sub contractors. Many of his workers are multi-skilled and professional. We are at the end of the renovations and are please with the outcome. We will use Innovators again in future projects. Giselle Ulmo Giselle Ulmo Design

With a recent move, I needed a lot of help with my townhouse including carpentry, plumbing, light electric, landscaping, installation of large TV and appliances, design and build of a garage gym. Deuel went above and beyond and brought to my attention potential enhancements/improvements I didn’t think of. He took care of all of it and did a great job! I highly recommend him!

    Saulo was recommended to me for repair jobs. He and a co-worker framed, erected wall board, added trim and painted to box in and cover up recently installed a/c ducts in a 1927 house (framing of the ducts pictured). The final product looks great and completely blends into the room. They also repaired a minor wall damage and painted a office space. Saulo also replaced a rotting front door saddle. They did an excellent job and kept the work space clean. Saulo was professional, on time, prompt in getting back to us and fairly priced. Quality work is hard to find. I would hire him again.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
