Steve has been helping us with some long-needed home repair work. He has re-screened our porch, replaced our corner boards on the home, cleaned out our gutters (up three stories in the back, and then hopped across the roof!!!), replaced the downspouts, replaced some clapboards, and is currently replacing sills and window trim on all of our windows. His work has been outstanding, and he is the nicest gentleman, always polite, knowledgable, and helpful with providing cost-saving pointers. I have already been recommending him to others, and am looking forward to having him back to do some interior work for us in the Fall.

Very professional and knowledgeable. I chose Weathertite because I needed my gutters cleaned (3 years with no cleaning) and they also did some carpentry to fix a section of my porch that had rotted due to the gutters not draining. Rainwater now flows freely and porch is fixed. They also said they would be able to do a couple other small projects I need done as well.

Erik and Joe (?) did good work install my gutters and down spouts on my sun porch. They removed existing wood gutters and took them away. No surprises. Would definitely consider using them again for other services.

I feel lucky to have found Artem. He did a great job of replacing all of the railings on my 1st and 2nd story porches. He was very organized and neat. Each day my backyard was picked up and tidy. The quality of his work is great and his price was reasonable. I would hire him again, and would feel very comfortable recommending him to friends, family or neighbors.

Billy responded to my request for a quote within a half hour of submitting my request last Sunday and was on our front porch that afternoon. He gave us a fair quote, and he was back the next afternoon to repair a fence knocked down by one of the winter storms. He did an excellent job, and we would gladly hire him again in the future. Thanks, Billy!

Eduardo tore down the existing front porches on my two family home, and rebuilt them. Eduardo was extremely attentive to my need to get the work on my porches done before winter set in. He finished the work on time, and he was always responsive to my questions and concerns. The price quoted was fair, somewhere in the middle of other quotes I received from other contractors, but he didn't charge me more when there were some unexpected add-on costs, and I really appreciated that. The quality of the work is excellent, and I look forward to hiring him again on other large projects that I need done.

My experience with Troy was a great one! I hired Troy for some exterior staining that I needed done. Working with Troy was a pleasure. Contractors that are as courteous, professional, and efficient as him are a rarity! Troy showed up when he said he would, completed the project when he said he would, and charged me what he said he would. His price was exceptional - especially given the caliber of work that he performed! Troy restored an old garage, deck, and awning for me. They "POP" like new. He listened to my vision for the project - and delivered exactly what I wanted - it's PERFECT! As a professional plumber, I have been on many of Troy's bathroom remodel jobs. I must say that his jobs are extremely organized, timely, and of course - beautiful! I have seen many remodels by many different contractors, and I can confidently say that Troy is one of the best! I am very impressed with the quality of work that I've personally seen Troy deliver. I enthusiastically recommend Troy, as both a customer and a professional contractor. for any and all remodeling needs!

Lathan was wonderful to work with! He reframed a door for me on the inside and out. The house is 100 years old with detailed molding. He went above and beyond to find matching molding for the door. It came out perfect!! I also bought a porch swing only to find out there was no beam in my porch ceiling to hang it from. Lathan did a fabulous job removing a tongue and groove ceiling to install a beam and replace the ceiling after. He was fantastic about answering questions, scheduling, and overall a great and personable guy who I feel lucky to have met to help with the million and one things needed around the house. Thank you Lathan for the great job! -Kathy

I was preparing my house for sale and I needed a number of repairs made to boost my sale price. I hired Mr. Paolino to rebuild and paint my front porch, repair my concrete walkway and assess and repair my roof and my chimney. All of these projects were completed on budget and within my tight time frame. They were in and out and left my property clean for my showings.

My wife and I hired Heraldo to demolish an old covered back porch and replace it with an open deck, as well as a quick remodel of our existing front porch structure. We agreed on a VERY fair price. Heraldo agreed to start on a Friday morning. He arrived on time each of the 5 days that he worked at my house, was neat and clean in his work, meticulous to the smaller details, and responsive to any questions we had along the way. He is an extremely hard worker, working full days on both Saturday and Sunday, and had the whole project done and cleaned up by Tuesday afternoon. Just 5 days to completely do the whole project. Heraldo's work is top quality, and I would highly recommend him. If you are considering hiring him, he is a great choice.

Alex was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was one of the first contractors to reach out to me once I posted my job, and was always responsive and punctual. He met me out the same week I posted the job, gave me an estimate within a few days, and started the job the next week. He completely repainted the exterior of my two-family house, repaired the porch columns, rebuilt the stair railings and replaced one of the exterior doors. Even after he was all paid and the job was done, Alex realized the lock on the door wasn't working properly and made sure it was replaced and perfect before calling the job "done". That's the mark of a true professional! I will definitely be calling Alex in the future for any carpentry/painting needs.

Sean and Kaitlin showed up on time and quickly got right to work clearing out a foot of snow from my super narrow/annoying driveway and my front and back porch and walks. They were quick, courteous and professional and really did a fantastic job for what I consider a fair price. As I'm still recovering from a lower back injury, I was worried I wouldn't be able to take care of this all myself so I'm super thankful to have had the help. Have a ton of other odds and ends things to do around the house and Brophy Builders will be my first call for that and any other snow removal needs! Thanks guys!

Barry Gordon did work on my house to convert an old porch into an office space which is a valuable component to our home business. He was able to make solid recommendations regarding the project building approach and material choices. His communication skills allow him to explain the project through in an easy to understand manner. He is a man of sterling character, which reflects in his honesty, sense of humor, and work ethic, and I would recommend him as an excellent choice.

DL Painting LLC responded quickly to my request. I was able to explain that we had a fairly tight budget and they were willing to work within that. They were honest about the time frame for the job, came on time, and were easy to deal with. We hired them to paint the trim, porches, and all exposed wood on a 4 story house in order to get lead certification. They were very respectful at the worksite (the job was for a non-profit org that works with youth) and were also respectful to our neighbors. They were trustworthy. We left them with the keys for the building and they took care of everything. They were very easy to work with, I asked them to paint our doors and they had no problem adding the extra tasks. They also were great about cleaning up after themselves and even the neighbors commented on it. The building looks amazing! We would recommend them without any reservation!! (note, for some reason I can't star the subcategories, but I'd give them 5 stars in each one!)

Contacted Arthur about replacing a tub with a shower system. From the start he was great, suggesting things to do that would save on the budget. He was really good working around supplier issues and making sure I was in the loop the whole way. I ended up having him also replace porch stairs that were past their prime and install a storm door as well. Arthur did a great job with a the projects and I would definitely contact him in the future for other jobs.

I have known Tony for approximately 15 years. During that time he has built a deck, a porch, recreated a sunroom, tiled a backsplash and multiple floors, painted various structures/rooms, built a greenhouse and most recently a custom fence with gate. He works when he says he will and always hits the agreed-upon budget. I look forward to many more years of trusted improvements to my home.

Joseph is straightforward and diligent in his approach. He communicated well and kept us apprised of everything throughout. He has a talented crew of tradespeople and earned our trust such that we hired him for a second project to remodel our kitchen as soon as he was finished our first project of repairing our porch and roof from a fallen tree. Thank you, Joseph. Job(s) well done!

Brett McNamara was a true professional, meeting every need we had in a timely manner. We had a deadline to meet, and he finished several jobs on time and within budget, doing superb work. We are going to hire him to maintain our properties as the needs arise. Not only did he install gutters 3 stories high, he roofed the porch, installed vents, and completed several interior jobs to our satisfaction. He was always punctual and honest, a man you can trust to do the job properly.

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.
