I had an urgent need to have a handicapped ramp built at my garage door steps. I have a foot injury and cannot walk up the steps to my house to get in or out. This was serious and dangerous, situation. Adam responded quickly to my carpenter request within 2 hours and rearranged his entire day to accommodate me the next business morning. He helped me out in a very bad bind. Now I feel much safer. God bless you, Adam for your kindness and willingness to get the job done. Thanks again.

Ken Edwards, with Workman Contracting, returned my calls, showed up as scheduled, and provided ample time to discuss my roofing job. He, and his carpenter, Vince, were very nice and exceptionally patient as I gathered information from my inspector and discussed plan options. His first estimate was fair and reasonable. Because the job ended up needing more work than I had planned on to accomplish my purposes, Ken's final bid was also fair and reasonable, but over my current budget. For now, I've put off hiring, only due to my budget. And here's something very special, when I explained this to Ken, he was very gracious and understanding and wished me luck. I would definitely hire Workman Contacting once my project needs and budget align better. I thank Ken and Vince for their time and valuable input!

Brad Hubbard is the epitome of what you expect in a service provider! I had been looking for a carpenter/woodworker to build a blanket chest for extra storage. Most of the contacts provided never returned my call. I found Brad through an internet search. I received a response within a day. Brad listened to what I wanted, provided designs and a very reasonable timeframe for the finished product all around my schedule. Thanks to Brad - so love my blanket chest!!

After multiple bad experiences with other contractors from this Thumbtack site, I’ve FINALLY found one that I could trust and do the job he said he would do. I was very pleased to work with Bart and his team. They were all so professional and worked hard on building me my 15x25 ft front deck. I plan to hire them again down the road to enclose it. Thank you guys! “I LOVE IT!!!” ~Crystal

    I had some wood rot on the siding of my house and had Doug replace it. I also had the interior walls of a sunroom taken off to treat for carpenter bees and had him put the walls back up, and fix some leaks in the chimney where water was leaking in. The work was done quickly and professionally. I definitely recommend Doug to anyone looking to do work on their house of any type or size.

          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.
