If you want a carpenter who's professional, punctual, meticulous, unobtrusive, artistic (and is good with happy little dogs), hire Tom. We hired him to build custom wainscoting along one wall of our living room, running up the steps into the hallway, as well as paint the wainscoting, wall and our kitchen. We are beyond thrilled with Tom's work. Every edge and corner is precise, and finished product is really beautiful. We have some more home improvements in mind, and we'll be calling Tom first.

Ardmoor was the first to return my call and the first to get onsite to provide an estimate. Their price was very competitive. The window was ready and installed several days earlier than they said it would be and the quality of the window and installation were great! I would certainly call them for future repairs.

The project was a non-typical home addition. As the contractor, Dan Barrett shared his years of experience when recommending project plan alterations that resulted in improving the original design plans. Throughout the entire process, the construction site was cleaned up at the end of each day and materials were kept covered and protected from the weather. The combination of a team of skilled craftsmen, the full use of quality materials and solid attention to detail resulted in a very strong and beautiful finish. Barrett Custom Carpentry, LLC provided professional workmanship, continuous communication with the client and their prompt and polite service provided a pleasurable experience Barrett Custom Carpentry, LLC is an ideal contractor to work with.

We worked with Kevin when he lead and worked on several simultaneous projects in my home that included a completely renovated sunroom, master bathroom, walk-in closet, as well as built a deck and swapped a sliding glass door for a window. We are thrilled with his work. Kevin is seasoned, talented, and fine carpenter. Aside from his exemplary work, he is a good person, the kind you want on your team. He is very easy going, kind, honest, direct, and graceful in stressful situations. He successfully managed a multi-room project with several subcontractors, some with difficult personalities. It is an added bonus that he is excellent with children and pets. We are very happy that we worked with Kevin on this project. His work was excellent and we genuinely enjoyed getting to know him. We highly recommend that you give him the opportunity to work with you on your projects. We look forward to working with him again on our future projects. Should you have any questions regarding Kevin Moss, please do not hesitate to contact me

Our old house had some serious problems ... rotting windowsills and creaky stairs. Carpenter Tom Simons came when he said he would, did more than we could have expected (including removing an air conditioner that was precariously tilted), used ingenuity to deal with problems and charged a reasonable fee.

We had Bob come in and redo our living room floor. I have never seen a more organized and motivated group of carpenters. They got the job done quickly and it is still beautiful. We were so happy with the floor that we have had them back to redo the front door and put aluminum corners up on the outside of the house too! This was just such a fantastic experience I don't care who says not to mix business with family. Its a much better atmosphere when you treat everyone you do business with like they are family. We will definitely be coming back to Bob for our next project.

I highly recommend Lyle for any carpentry and home repairs. Jane Monahan

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.
