Mike visited our house and magically solved all our problems in two times! He fixed the gate of the fence which was not leveled; replaced the hose stand; replaced the downspout which was clogged; and fixed 2 doors. His knowledge, work and self organization are above any expectations! Mike works very fast, neat, masterly and accurately! He explains all his actions, has great communication skills, and understands customer's needs!! I will need to install the porch handrails. Mike proposed several options for their installation to save money and make the entrance porch safe and beautiful. I and my husband are very happy that we found such a thinking and creative handyman! Thank you very much, Mike!

We hired Mike to update our screened in porch. Our porch did not have any rails and was in need of all new screens and a new door. We then had porch and outside deck restained. Mike power washed all before adding rails, screens and staining. Quality of work is very good. Mike gave us a reasonable quote and completed the job when he said he would. Nice, polite, quiet and clean! After completion and paying, we had an issue with the screened door. Mike came right back and fixed it. We have more projects for him. We will definitely use him. Highly recommended.

My experience working with Chuck of Barnes Sklare was nothing short of exceptional. Courteous, and professional from quote to completion, Chuck and his team put my mind at ease with the detailed renderings, and the high quality of workmanship. The final product matched the renderings exactly, and the project was completed within 2% of the quote. As this is my first home, and this was the first time I've ever worked with a contractor for such a large (at least in my mind) undertaking, I can honestly say that I was a little nervous. After all, you never know what you don't know, that's how you learn. However, after working with Barnes Sklare for this 2 story porch/deck rebuild, my concerns were put to rest; these guys know what they’re doing. I'm happy to report that I'll be looking forward to working with this contractor in the future.

We had to have our front porch torn up and the foundation under the porch repaired, with the porch eventually rebuilt. Tim and his team were quick to respond, provided a written quote that they stuck to, and performed extremely quality work. They were able to work with my schedule and were truly pleasant to work with!

Robert repaired some rotted wood on a screen porch and installed bead board. He did an excellent job. He was very professional in his work and communication about when he would arrive and how long the repair would take. Very pleased with the work and would use him again without worry.

I had a great experience with Anthony and his team. They sanded and finished my hardwood floors, tiled a porch, made screens for the porch and did just about anything else we could find for them to do. The job took about a week. He always explained what they were going to do and what it would cost. The job was in Akron and he came done and gave me an estimate within a day of my contacting him. I have had a great deal of work done on my home lately and he was by far the most reliable.

I purchased a home in the West Park neighborhood of Cleveland. The house and garage were condemned and scheduled to be torn down by the city. The house was a detriment to this beautiful neighborhood. Mike and his crew at MK Design Build redesigned and rebuilt the entire home. They had to replace all of the plumbing, wiring, interior walls, roof, front porch, back porch, doors, windows, and refinish the hardwood floors. MK Design Build finished this house ahead of schedule and under budget. Now this is the best looking house on the street. When the crew at MK design build refinished the house it looked and smelled brand-new. Sadly, the garage was too far gone to rebuild so Mike and his crew demolished it and hauled every piece of it away. The next project I have planned is to have MK Design Build rebuild the garage for me and we're going to turn it into a man cave! Can't wait, super job Mike.

Justin has done many jobs inside and outside of my home. Each service that he has performed has been exceptional; from floor tile to backsplash tiling to front porch railings, just to name a few. I continue to recommend him highly and will continue to use him myself because of the quality of his work.

Tim was quick to respond to my request and able to start on the bathroom repairs that afternoon. Along with the bathroom floor and toilet replacement, he redid the flooring and railing on my front porch, replaced my side door and arranged for someone to redo the tuckpointing on my porch steps. The quotes were very reasonable and his work is great.

I needed a porch removed and replaced, The upstairs bathroom plumbing needed to be fixed, the interior walls needed to be painted,and the electrical work as well. My friend had me refrered me to Mr.Thompson. He had kindly came out and looked at my house and we discussed what needs to be done and how its going to be done. He filled out a contract with me saying he will be there at a certain time and when the job will be completed and how the job will be done. He had followed every word on the contract. Mr Thompson had kept me updated with all his work. I am very satisfied with 1~way construction work and I had even refered him to some of my friends as well. If i have any other work in the future I will difintely call Mr.Thompson from 1~way contruction. If you need any work done give him a call (216) 456 4336.

        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.
