Mike has done quite a few projects around the house for us starting with a minor repair of our front steps which needed some mortar work to enclosing our porch which was previously only screened in. We asked Mike to give us some ideas and we decided to do a partial enclosure with storm windows. Mike did all the woodwork and framing to make it a 3 season room, installed fan, painted---basically did it all. Quality of work was excellent and mike is a pleasure to work with. if he says he's showing up, he'll be there. more importantly, mike goes above and beyond fixing little things he sees without additional charge. great quality, great price, great guy. in fact, he also helped us in a somewhat emergency situation when we found water leaking behind our kitchen wall. Mike came right over to assess the problem and fixed it in a timely manner. you wont be disappointed

I had a BIG powerwashing job: 2story home, white pvc fencing with moss and mold along with trex decking and belgian blue pavers on the front porch. The job was done with great attention to detail and care. The outcome is majestic: gleaming white soffits, pavers like new as well as sealed and sanded, decking fresh and house aglow! A FULL day of work for 2 guys that brought their equipment, set up, did the job and were courteous and gracious. I would recommend 100%. Now, I hired them for painting. An excellent value and easy electronic payment. These are the guys for any job! Even my neighbor came out and hired them too. You will be as impressed as I am. Stunning!!

Luis was a fantastic find! He is professionalism, knowledgeable, creative and a good value. He did an amazing job with the fence and made the yard a completely enclosed fortress for my puppy, and came up with a very creative solution for replacing very old Custom railings on my 115 year old house with a modern, sturdy and safe replacement that looks like the original porch railings! Can’t say enough good things about him. Definitely hire him. Hurley recommended. Bonus: he’s a super nice, friendly guy too!

Ted was great to work with, responsive, and flexible. He brought with him an excellent mason as well to recreate our front porch and retaining wall. We are pleased and hope to use him for other home improvement projects in the future.

Tony took the time to inspect our front porch steps, detail what needed to be replaced and what was still in good shape (saving us money), and chat with us about his business and what services he offers. He was friendly and professional - and he's dog-friendly! He replaced the rotted steps on our front porch and brought the old railings up to code, making sure they are very sturdy for my elderly mom who has two hip replacements and needs to be super careful. He did not contract this work out - he completed the entire project himself in one day. We promptly hired him again for another job.

Tom was very prompt and professional. His crew were nice, competent and tidy. His price was appropriate. He communicated in a timely way. Tom was able to assist in design ideas. I hired him for 2 paint jobs and ended up having him return for interior porcelain tiling and a brick porch repair. I highly recommend TNS.

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.

I am very happy with the work done on my house and would recommend All Remodeling without hesitation. We had a big job... new siding, gutters, new front porch, re-framing porch roof and extending the overhang, new columns and railing, (2) new stairs and a installing a new font door with sidelights. They were super courteous and conscientious and always willing to do all those extra little things you don't think of or can foresee. Their pricing is very reasonable and Rick and Manual are an absolute pleasure to work with.

Excellent job on my driveway and concrete repairs! Aduke and his crew were meticulous, fast, and very professional. They paid close attention to details and were thorough in their workmanship. There were no cutting corners with these guys! They were very conscientious, neat, and they left my home and yard clean asterward. I feel that I received a good value for the cost. I will hire them again for any project I have in the future. I recommend them highly!

I received a response from Richard immediately. We set up a time the next morning (because it was already after 5pm when I sent the request through Thumbtack) for him to pick up the window frame, replace the glass, and install the window. He kept me informed along the way because I was at work when he replaced the window (on my front porch). I also needed assistance finding a replacement frame for another window. Although, he didn't have the replacement frame he found a shop that did have what I needed. Richard was very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend him to a friend and use his company for any future projects.

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

Replaced wooden steps to my front porch and painted the railings. I'm very satisfied with the end result. The workmen put in extra effort to replace hard to reach planks to make sure the surfaces were level and safe. The work was completed promptly at a reasonable cost.

I hired Bruce to strip/paint an awning over my back porch, paint the trim around the back door, and replace an outdoor lighting fixture. He’s great. Bruce is a really nice guy and easy to talk to. Scheduling and communication pre-project was a breeze. Pricing was excellent. He showed up early and took care of this project quickly, neatly, and the workmanship is top notch. I am more than happy with the final product. I will definitely hire Bruce Sewell of S&B Handyman Service again and I would highly recommend you do the same.

Hey these guys did a great job repairing my old porch. I didn't think it was salvageable. And the price was very fair. I got other quotes that were $500 to $1,000 higher. that do the right job at a great price

I’ve used CzechMate for many of my home repairs and projects. From fixing my porch banister, assembling pre-fab furniture, hanging a TV and even welding our kitchen stools, CzechMate has always supplied professional quality work at a fair price. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

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.
