"First some background - Collins Custom Construction is cleaning up another contractors mess. My mother was left with a complete disaster from her previous contractor who did shoddy and incomplete work. I met with Daniel, the owner, and discussed the various issues and projects that need to be repaired or completed. Daniel was very understanding. He took the time to listen to my concerns for my mothers home. I was anxious to get this mess cleaned up and give my mom her peace-of-mind and a clean safe home. Daniel gave me a thoughtful, fair, professional and itemized quote. The work started in earnest with a crew of three moving seamlessly from area to area. I had purchased the materials and had them available so the work could continue with ease. Daniel and his crew did an excellent job attempting to deal with the problem areas in flooring. Initially flooring was going to be the biggest issue. More background - the project as a whole encompassed all trades, from plumbing and electrical to casework and general carpentry, to tiling and painting. Every room in my moms home was touched by either Daniel or his crew. Back to the work, the new floors look great, I am very pleased with the work around and problem solving to make the floors look great in spite of the previous contractors work. The walls were primed in the bathroom and kitchen. All the cabinet doors were removed and thoroughly sanded, primed and are at this posting being painted, new hardware will be installed after painting. Baseboards have ostensibly been layed throughout the home with just a few small areas still needing trim. A new walk in tiled shower has been plumbed and the tile, seat and grout is in as is some of the trim. The best review I could ever write is to say I would recommend Collins Custom Construction to family and friends. The workmanship to date has been exceptional. Daniel has been very responsive with my concerns and/or questions. He has been attentive, fair, reasonable and very invested in making sure my mom was happy with the end product. As of this posting I am extremely pleased with the overall quality of the work. More upon completion of the work. This is a final project review. I am thrilled. More importantly my mother is thrilled. The kitchen turned out better than we hoped. The cabinets were in really bad shape. We could not afford new cabinets, Daniel worked very hard to make the cabinets look as close to new as possible. They are white and bright and give my mother's home a fresh look. The floors turned out great. The new shower is beautiful. The tiling in the shower looks terrific, beautifully done. The crew worked late into the evening to meet the deadline. I appreciated the team's follow thru to the end of the project. All in all my mother is beyond happy. I have recommended Collins Custom Construction to neighbors. Collins started and finished strong."

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.
