We had Mark take out a window and cut a doorway into the house and install a storm door and entry door. Mark is very precise and a master carpenter! He also added an outlet in a complex spot of the house and was meticulous and solved an electrical issue that was there from the last electrician. Plus he added a wall in the kitchen. Last but not least, he installed an 8-foot awning which came with incomplete instructions. We couldn't be more happy with his artistry and attention to detail. The finished project is beautiful.

My husband and I could not be happier with the work Jude and Brian did on our window and door trim! We recently purchased a new house and wanted some of our doors and ALL of our windows trimmed out in the craftsman style. We had no idea how to do it ourselves so one day I decided to do a search for carpenters in the Cincinnati area. After doing some research, I came across JLH Finish Carpentry and Paint, amongst others. We received some quotes from other carpenters in the area, but after meeting Brian and Jude, we knew they were the perfect team to install our new door and window trim! They were so awesome!!! From our first meeting, we knew they would be so easy to work with and we felt like they listened to everything we were wanting! Jude even made sketches right then and there to show us different options. The next meeting they brought us some samples of their creations. It was EXACTLY what we wanted and MORE! We were so excited! Once they got started, things moved quickly and smoothly. We really could not be happier with the end results! We just look at our trim and cannot believe it's our house! Now we can't wait for them to do the trim on the rest of our doors and our baseboards! (and hopefully one day crown molding!) Their skills, professionalism, work ethic, customer service, friendliness, likability and the amazing end result make them a team we would highly recommend!!! So far, only two friends have seen our new trim and BOTH asked for their business card! I have a feeling that we're going to need more cards to hand out! We were so nervous about hiring a carpenter from just searching online, but we're so glad we did!!! We feel like we found the best kept secret in Cincinnati!

We purchased 3 fiberglass self hung doors to replace the exterior doors to our home from Home Depot. The purchase included the price for installation and installation materials. We were very fortunate that Home Depot assigned Travis Anderson to do the installs. We have been involved in a number of construction improvements to our home over the years involving numerous contractors and carpenters. Travis Anderson is the only one we can honestly say we had a very satisfactory experience with. He is the consummate professional. Not only was his craftsmanship in the installation of doors and frames superb, he went out of his way to stay in constant contact with us to keep us informed up the status of our door orders and kept his word in showing up timely on the installation dates agreed to. Travis is top notch in our book.

    Let me start this off by saying, if you have most any exterior or interior home projects in the works Matt Carpenter Construction is the way to go! Matt put a large deck on the back of our home and we are beyond pleased with the results. The guy was great to deal with, was quick and very competitively priced. He does fantastic work and we are beyond pleased with the way it turned out. We've already got a new project in the works with him as we speak.

    I've had Byron in my home on several occasions. Byron has put up blinds, yard work and has performed other odds and ins to include painting. He's always on time and extremely courteous with a very fair price for the work he performs.

    I hired Rich to tear down my existing deck and rebuild a pressure treated wood deck. This job was in the winter, Dec of 2016. Rich tore the deck down and had the flooring replaced within a couple days, so that I could take my dog out into the back yard. He then rebuilt the railing system, which is very strudy. He also custom made the steps by hand and had them up all in a matter of hours. He has great vision and is a excellent carpenter. He created ideas on how to do things that I would have never thought of. He takes great pride in his work and does a excellent job at a reasonable price. I have also used Rich to repair a loose and leaking gutter and other small jobs around the house. He has the know how and skills to do just about anything. If you are looking for a great carpenter who does excellent work, Rich is your man!!

    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.

    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.

    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.
