I didn't know anything about this company before I hired them to replace gutters on a rental house for us in Franklin. They were very responsive! They matched the color of the new gutter to the house very well. They also added gutter guard. We were so happy that we asked them to add gutters on our log cabin in the same county. We weren't knowing what to expect since it is rustic with a metal roof. They did a beautiful job on it as well! It blends right in and was placed perfectly. I would recommend this company to anyone!

Very thorough job, asked a lot of questions to ensure my satisfaction. Did a beautiful striped wall in my nursery, in addition to the rest of my house. Highly recommended!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to hire John to mow my lawn due to the size of my back gate. I was able to hire him to do a refresher on the mulch in my front yard. He was very professional and kept in contact with me through the process. There were many days of rain that caused a need to reschedule, but as soon as it cleared he showed up and got to work.

Chris did an excellent job installing a new travertine floor in my sunroom. The job was fairly involved in that he had to remove an old tile floor and level the concrete slab subfloor before installing the new stone flooring. The job took a little longer than expected due to weather factors and scheduling, but was completed reasonably quickly considering the scope of the project. The quality of Chris's work was excellent and it was a pleasure to work with him.

Steve is the best! I had a big project of needing someone to come hang drapery rods and wall mounts for my TV's and Steve responded to my request. He came and installed everything and did a wonderful job. He was so nice and cleaned up after himself. We have several other projects and will for sure be reaching out to Steve for help. He was very professional and you won't regret hiring him.

Greg was very responsive to my initial inquiry, came out right away to take a look at what I needed and on that first visit even helped with a potential safety issue with some of my materials. I needed a 12X24 cedar pavilion assembled and Greg and his team did a great job getting it in the air and finishing it out. He kept me informed throughout the project and did a good job working around some poor weather that slowed us down. Greg is very knowledgeable and has a strong can-do attitude that kept coming though. I won't hesitate to use him again. A great experience!

JAZ construction tiled my kitchen backsplash recently and did a great job. Jose was very responsive and excellent to communicate with. He took a look at the job on Friday and was tiling Tuesday morning and stayed until the job was complete. The tile was more complex than just a subway and it came out great! I will definitely be calling JAZ again for my bathroom remodel and highly recommend them.

Multiple woodworking jobs. Wood-rot replacement. Garage door replacement. We are so pleased with his abilities and reliability that we have asked him to design and build a pergola for us. Al is perhaps the most reliable contractor we have ever used. I would hire him for any major renovation.

Originally hired for just paint, when walls were completed I couldn’t help but to start wanting more of my house transformed. Although I changed the length of the scope of work and was also indecisive about choosing out the details, Shane was extremely patient with me requesting more projects and completing them as timely as he could. I wanted high quality work, not a rushed job. Very meticulous and even worked throughout the weekends and holidays to get the job done. From hiring him to just paint walls, I hired him to complete most of my renovation: Painting, hardwood, tiles, kitchen, door handles, deck stain, pressure washing, down to the wiring. I highly recommend for good quality work. I’ve attached some before and after photos. Went from a home with a “90’s feel to a modernized contemporary feel. The pictures speak for its self.

Thumbtack wouldn't let me choose more than three highlights for this project, but if I could I would include them all. Matt installed new baseboards and crafted a custom step for our bonus room. I couldn't be happier with the end result. The room was a challenge due to some odd corners and uneven flooring, but Matt was relentless in his efforts to make the final product absolutely perfect. He was very communicative throughout the process, checking in to make sure he was on track with our needs and making sure not to go over budget. The custom step, made out of beautiful elm, turned out amazing, and it is clear that Matt is a true craftsman with an eye for detail and design. Besides doing incredible quality work, Matt is also very professional and responsive, and a genuinely thoughtful person. It was a relief to find someone in Nashville who is so dependable and easy to work with, and I look forward to hiring Matt again.

If you want a participant in the design of your outdoor living space, George is your man. I met with multiple landscapers during the idea phase and got a lot of "yeah, we can do that." One meeting with George and he sized up the environment, heard what I was looking for functionally, and then we collaborated to put a design down on paper. Not everyone will build an architectural drawing for you. George partners with great specialists, including Craig Blackmer from Titan Landscaping. Our project included a pergola, double-sided privacy fencing, flagstone patio, raised beds, sod, sunken firepit, and subterranean drainage. George and Craig saw it through start to finish. We'll worth the investment!

Chris just completed my kitchen remodel last week and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. So beautiful and sleek. My friends came over and they were in awe of my new kitchen. Everything was done from top to bottom (New Electrical Lighting, Plumbing, Painting, Tile Backsplash, Granite Countertops, Cabinets & New Flooring). I am a local sheriff and I did my homework on this contractor. While I understood he had few bad clients in the past, the positive reviews outweighed the negative ones plus he had references which I also checked them out. Not only those items I also looked into his previous projects. I realized that not every contractor is perfect and that we all make mistakes in life. The important thing that stood out about him was his professionalism and his approach to the project with every details. He took photos of the whole progress as well as documenting every work he performed. To me, this means that he took every consideration in making sure I was happy with the progress. I ended up having him redo the ENTIRE main level in my house. New stairwell with hardwood treads and white risers also upgraded my handrail with new stain to match the hardwood flooring and steps. Chris is somebody you should consider hiring to do the work. He knows just about everything from a design standpoint to trade work. He has a design software to make kitchen 3D drawings and he sells 3 different brands of cabinets. I ended up going with Homecrest due to more viable options they offered at a reasonable price. He also do all the installation of new cabinets. You get 3 in 1 service for a decent price. I went to Home Depot and Lowe's to get quotes and they charge almost 10% to 15% more than Chris' price.I was able to get 2 lazy susans, spice rack, pull out drawers with utensil cans, soft close drawers and doors, food panty with pull-out drawers that also feature soft close, wine cabinet to store wine glasses underneath as well as wine for stocking purpose. All of the options I wanted Chris was able to stay under budget. I could not be more pleased with my new kitchen. It looks like something you'd see in a magazine. I showed Chris some photos that I found on Houzz and he was able to accomplish that by making my kitchen look super beautiful. Beside his work, he is a very nice gentleman. I'm a widow and have 3 young children. My husband passed away at age 43. Chris took great care of us all during his time working on my house. I will hire him back to remodel upstairs in a year or two when I save up more money. He is someone you can also trust to do all these things. We both became good friends afterward. I have attached few photos of my new kitchen. Please consider him for any of your projects. Thank you, K. Jam

Tom is a kind, hardworking, thorough contractor. He helped us turn our once weird, shed roof porch into an amazing screened room that we will use throughout the year. He noticeably put a lot of thought and effort into making our porch better than I could have imagined. I would recommend Tom to anyone and hope to use him for future projects.

Landon has done multiple jobs for me - 2-3 years ago he update my house with new wood doors in all rooms, replaced all the trim and did wainscoat in dining room, replaced my front and back door, built me 2 decks. He came in spent time with me and my ideas gave me suggestions, showed me pictures (because I'm visual) - he cared - I changed my mind - he adjusted - very fair and if I had questions he was there to answer them.... Now to current- we moved (yes he increase the sell of my home about $8,000) - We had him do multiple things in our new home - built-in bookcases for my study, again wainscoat and cedar beams in dining room, cedar beams in my great room, did custom closets in all.. And will be using him to build me a deck off my outdoor living soon. I would highly recommend him, you don't find many custom trim people that take pride in their own work -- if he didn't like the way it looked he removed it and did it till he was satisfied, not me. hopefully I will be able to upload pics after I submit... Call him -- well worth it

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.
