I highly recommend Song. He is personable, knowledgeable and very professional. We had a custom table that got damaged and legs became very unstable. Song presented two options for the fix. He did a great job and I am pleased with the results. My experience with Gravity NW was a 10. Hire this guy.

I had the best experience I've ever had with contractors using John with A&C . I had a highly technical and complex request, which was to build a custom treehouse. John showed up and shared his vision, which totally mapped to mine and extended beyond! Brian and his crew came over to execute that vision, and literally went above and beyond. Brian made himself available to me at all times, and was always willing to explain anything I didn't understand. This was definitely an iterative process, and both of us had to be really flexible. Brian was open to my ideas and even took a call from me on a Sunday!! In addition, they left the job site clean and ready for us to use the treehouse. John stayed in touch with me throughout the project, and made sure I was happy the whole way through. I would highly recommend John and Brian with A&C. It doesn't get much better!

Daniel installed a backsplash in my kitchen. First, he bid the job by making time in his schedule to see the project site. I was pleased with the bid as it was very competitive. Daniel worked around my schedule, and when it came time to start the project, he was prompt and reliable. Daniel was thorough in cleaning up once the job was complete. The quality of his work was wonderful and I now have a beautiful custom designed backsplash!

THANK YOU GUYS!! Viktor, you and Alex did an outstanding job refinishing our floors. I was skeptical if they would turn out like you thought but low and behold they did. Two very long days of work showed how dedicated this company is for excellent work. Very trustworthy, showed up when they said they would, and cleaned up. Will hire again when we need any wood work done in our home. Again thanks!

Wish I could give a higher star rating, and yes I am a REAL CUSTOMER. These gentlemen were so very helpful, overboard in looking for and fixing my bad and many issues. Sometimes you always worry about "getting taken" by providers like this, and that's if they even show up in the first place. But I am always pleased with Thumbtack and the people they choose to provide us customers with, I definitely was not disappointed this time either. Rise Solutions is going to be my go to plumbing company should the need arise or if someone asks me for a reference or referral!

Progressive Brushworks owner, Duane, is a true master painter and carpenter. My girlfriend had heard about Duane & his work from a co-worker so we decided to hire him to paint our entire interior and then he performed miscellaneous other repairs around the house. It was nice to hire 1 contractor to perform many different tasks. He was easy to talk to and dependable. I will hire Duane again. If your looking for an interior painter with superior skills, give Progressive Brushworks a call.

Today it's very hard to fine professional craftsmen in this trade. Now I found one Ed Reinstein. Ed repaired a dining chair leg that snaped and looked as if it could not be repaired. Ed fixed that chair and I could not tell that the leg had been damaged I was very impressed by the work he does. By the way Ed quoted the cost to repair the chair, and the time frame and that never changed. He is a man of his word. Very talented Man. Thanks Ed.

Steve and his crew did a wonderful job of making our vision for our kitchen a reality. We kept our existing cabinetry and hired DNA to update our kitchen, including removing a pocket door and half wall to open up our 1966 daylight ranch upstairs floor plan. Great attention to detail was appreciated in doing our remodel. The tile work was done beautifully and care was taken to keep our home clean throughout the project. We have just hired them again to remodel 2 bathrooms. Many thanks to Steve and his team for helping us update and customize our home.

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 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.

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.

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.
