Scott was a pleasure to work with. His biggest concern from beginning to end was that we got a porch built to our satisfaction. It was. In spades. He kept us in the loop at every stage of the project. Asking what we wanted and offering suggestions. Very helpful. Would not hesitate to hire him again. Thanks Scott.

I had all the original windows from when my house was built in 1964 replaced with new windows. Alfonso did a great job! He installed them quickly and left no trace of a mess. He worked with my limited budget. I feel like he really went above and beyond when my windows proved difficult to remove. I especially liked that he was considerate of my animals. I will definitely hire him again.

Thanks to Greg and his crew, Scott & Tom, when this batty PNW weather permits, we've been enjoying our bucolic back yard atop a fantastic deck for just about a year. The previous owners left behind a deathtrap excuse of a porch, so when as a 1st time home owner never having contracted work before I began the search, was rather overwhelmed. Greg was the *only* one to answer my 'thumbtack' inquiry and despite the distance from town, traveled out to assess and bid on the admittedly modest project. I can really thank his Second, Scott, for moving it forward, as it was on his insistence that what I envisaged could come in on budget with some tweaks. Working quickly and efficiently, this glorious addition was ready in a matter of days. Clearly the group compliments one another and gets down to business producing grand construction. However, there was some confusion as to the final product due to a rather ambiguous contract and miscommunication. I think G took a hit in making it right: no doubt his pride of workmanship could not allow for a cheap and tacky remedy to the issue. Guests both new and old were wowed by such a dramatic (and safe!) change to the backside of the home. And with good reason, we couldn't be happier with what they built and would recommend such talents.

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.
