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!!

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!

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.

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.

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.

I initially contacted Shawn for a small job, but after meeting him I and discussing some other bigger projects I was preparing to do, I ended up hiring for all the repair and remodeling work I needed. Shawn and his team replaced the roof, demolished and rebuilt a wrap-around front porch entirely, put in a new paver patio and underground pvc drain pipes, and replaced all the gutters and downspouts. Shawn also built a custom cabinet door in the kitchen. Everything was well done, and any changes or modifications I asked for were done without hesitation. Shawn is an honest and down to earth guy, and is able to handle all types of home remodeling needs. He is always available to answer any questions, and responded to any issues or changes I asked for right away. You feel like you have a friend working with you, and not just a businessman. This shows in the great job Shawn and is team does. I would certainly hire Shawn again for future work.

KJ did a great job painting 3 rooms and a hallway in our house that we are getting ready to put on the market. His bid was very reasonable and he stuck to it and during the course of the work he identified a few small things to add on to the project that helped with the overall impact and it did not feel like he was trying to "sell more." His team was very diligent and professional -- we've worked with other painters in the past. And we look forward to having him do work on our new house soon.

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.

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.

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

Chris was very professional and competent. He built two small porches in my backyard with pressure treated wood. Both came out better than I expected. I'm already using Chris for another job. I would recommend.

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.
