Refreshing that a contractor confirmed appointment the day before and arrived when scheduled. Frank did a great job installing my porcelain tile wall liner. He was very meticulous and neat.

David installed a handrail for the concrete steps leading into the garage. He was very responsive to my needs, efficient and did a beautiful job. He was extremely pleasant and I will definitely hire him in the future.

Leo built 3 custom closets for us and exposed our brick fireplace-even installed a mantle for us. Everything was completed professionally and in a timely manner. He and his workers only needed one extra day to complete all of the work but everything is quality work.

Earnest and his crew are awesome! I had them take down two massive trees that were hanging over my house and they did a fantastic job, cleaned up perfectly, and the value was great. They did such a great job and are so easy to work with that I hired them to do a full tear out of an old concrete and flagstone patio and walkway after the trees came down. Earnest and his crew worked so hard to make sure we were happy with the work I would hire him again in a second to do a variety of home improvement work!

Did a great job with my patio and carport given the ground work that needed done before the concrete was laid. This was a massive undertaking for me and I thought a Brian was really responsive. I had lots of coordination needed to be done between services for the backyard project and he answered all questions and patiently helped me to understand the total job. The time of the year proved to make this project slightly more difficult but everything was able to be completed before the holiday season which was really impressive. The end result quality was top rate

I hired Ryan to work on shrubs, remove two large loads of furniture and junk, and power wash my entire house and front porch. Ryan mentioned he is a former member of the U.S. Air Force and that would explain a lot about his strong work ethic and high standards of excellence for the work he does. Ryan has attention to detail and treats your property like his own. In my view, he is completely trustworthy and he has honor and integrity. His prices are fair and reasonable. Due to his exemplary work, I've re-hired him to remove two large trees from my yard. As a former military veteran myself, you help our community by hiring a veteran like Ryan. He recently got his new business off the ground and I'm very pleased to have been one of his first customers. Do yourself a favor and hire Ryan.

I hired R.K. Concrete & Contracting to install a concrete patio, steps, and a pathway to our deck steps. I was extremely happy with the results and will be calling them back for our future concrete work! Rob and his guys were really pleasant and professional and they were onsite at my house every day until the job was done. Also, Rob designed the layout to include curves in the concrete instead of everything being squared off. This was a great idea and made the results stand out even more. I also had them clear out an area of thick brush in our back yard. Again, very reasonable pricing and excellent work.

I can’t say enough good things about Ron as a contractor and as a person. He’s honest, kind and professional. He impressed me from start to finish. I hired him initially to build a pergola over my garage. He impressed me with outstanding craftsmanship, and completed the job on time and beyond my expectations. He was quick to respond to any questions I had. It turned out beautifully and has added tremendous curb appeal to our home. His work is not only excellent, but affordable. He will be the first person I will call for any future home projects.

Justin added a wooden soundproof ceiling including adding 16' joists, 7/16" OSB and fiberglass insulation over 650 sq ft of my interior office drop ceiling that was the only barrier between the office and the noisy fabrication shop. He was on time, and precise with his material list requirements. He checked in with me at the end of each day and updated me on the progress as well as any issues and recommendations to make the job better. He is a stickler for perfection and is extremely efficient in his execution of the work. You will not go wrong hiring Ellenberger Construction. I hire many contractors and he stands out at the top.

Josh and his crew did an excellent job building the retaining wall on our driveway, as well as, the small deck addition to our rear deck. It was quite a large undertaking and we appreciated his open communication when issues came up, and his solutions to work within our budget. He completed the jobs on time, and kept a clean job site while the work was underway

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.
