I was looking for a contractor to make a patio out back of my home. By using thumbtack Snyder Concrete and Polebarns responded immediately. Mr. Snyder came on a Sunday to view the project. They began work on a Tuesday and the project was finished on Thursday. They kept up informed every step of the way. It didn't matter if it was 8 at night or 6 in the morning Mr. Snyder made himself available for questions. As for the patio.......it's the most beautiful piece of concrete I've ever seen. It is above the expectations wr had for the patio and we owe that to Snyder concrete and Polebarns. I would definitely recommend their services as quality and reliable. We will use them again for future projects. OH YEAH......best part......they do more than just concrete and polebarns. Give them a call and I bet they can help you with your next project.

Great work, fair prices, professional service! What a great experience! I had a leak in my rubber roof. They showed up for the estimate and work promptly and even when running a few minutes late, I was notified. While they were on the roof, they didn't just do the job, they looked for any other issues and made recommendations. I have already had them clean the gutters, do maintenance on my shingle roof and a small tile repair project. I will definitely use them again.

Michael removed a deck and patio for us. This was all done within 24 hours of our first meeting. If you want prompt and thorough service, hire Michael. You won't be sorry. We'll be calling him again for future projects.

We hired Goggin Floor Installation and More to tear off an old two level deck and replace it with a new one level wooden deck with vinyl railing and a new stairway to the back yard. I think it was THE hottest week when the guys started the project and I felt bad for them out there working in that heat. They persevered and at the end of two weeks our deck was finished. They built us a very sturdy deck, treated lumber, and we are happy with the final results. Dave even came back and fixed a few small issues that we had talked to him about to make us happy with the completed job, which impressed us. Thanks Dave.

We had light fixtures and a ceiling fan installed, they look fantastic. He also let us know before installing the ceiling fan that it was not working properly and was able to let us go and get a replacement and still install the same day. Would definitely recommend.

Nothing but good things to say about Balco Landscapes! I had just completed two projects with separate big name contractors and the experiences were both horrible. Had I not been on home on several occasions, the work these other contractors did would have been done wrong and not to spec. So I was a bit uneasy when I realized that due to my work schedule, I would not be home for the entirety of the landscaping project with Balco. But, Balco Landscapes showed up every day, on time, and did the work they quoted. The work itself is stunning! The installed 2 flagstone patios over concrete base, a separate stacked stone retaining wall, and landscaped a garden bed horribly overgrown with weeds and planted agreed upon plants. Also planted a dogwood in the very back of the yard. Balco also pulled the necessary permits from Baltimore City (which in itself is no easy task). They quoted 2 weeks to complete the project and they finished in 1 week and 3 days. Harry and his team were nothing but courteous and professional from the moment they showed up in person to discuss design and requirements, through to the project's completion. The morning after the day in which it looked as though everything had been completed, I spoke directly with Harry to make sure they were done so I could finalize payment. Indeed they were... but Harry was already on his way to my house to shore up a joint line in one of the patios that "he wasn't happy with." I didn't ask him to do it... i didn't even recognize what he was talking about... but he came out on his own to take care of it. That is owning your workmanship. And that is respect for the homeowner. This is how working with contractors should always be!! They are already my decided choice for some additional work I'll have done in a few months. If you have landscaping needs, you'll be in good hands with Balco! A+ across the board.

We used C.I.R. Construction for several projects and would highly recommend Rick. He remodeled our bathroom, built a beautiful deck on our house, and replaced the roof. The quality of the work was always exemplary and the service was great. I've also seen Rick's work in many other settings in work he's done for others and as a former employee, so my experience with his work is extensive. There is not much he can't do, and do well.

I recently hired Johnson Exteriors to replace my roof. Nate was by far one of the most knowledgeable people I've received an estimate from. He was really on top of making sure we were happy and that we selected the roof that was right for us. I'd recommend this company to anyone looking for a quality contractor that really cares about their customers wants and needs.

R Fultz Home Remodeling has completed two jobs for me. I had them install a slider, which is shown in the first picture. I also had R Fultz Home Remodeling install flooring, trim, and a new light which are pictured in the other photo. They did an outstanding job on both. They will absolutely be used by me in the future. I would also highly recommend them to those around me.

Bob responded quickly to our needs, he was able to quote the job and start within a few days. Bob's custom trim work was the finishing touch needed to help complete our newly renovated livingroom and kitchen. I recommend using Bob for you next project.

I am buying my first house and needed my electrical system checked out and a few questions awnsered. I called Chris' Custums to come out and check these things for me. I explained everything on the phone i was looking for to be checked out and my timeline to have it completed. We setup the date and he came out to my soon to be house and was very professional and well prepared. He comfirmed my questioning on my service size and had also found some things i didnt know about. He gave me a quote to have the work completed and was very quick and percise on timeline to complete the job. He made everything very clear and awnsered all questions i had keeping me in the loop. I would deffinately recommend  Chris’ Custom Construction & Electrical Services LLC for all your household needs! Quick, prompt, accurate, strait forward, and friendly this guy is deffinately worth the time!

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.
