Juan did an incredible job! He is very professional and provides quality service. I always worry about the quality of service, especially when it comes to construction in my home, however I could tell Juan knows what he is doing and he doesn't take short cuts. He does the job thoroughly and EFFICIENTLY. I got two ceiling fans installed on my patio, beforehand I joked with my husband that I don't want the fans to wobble since they drop down, but they are sturdy and steadfast, as Juan put them on high as soon as he finished and I've had them going all day. I read the reviews before I booked JLD Services and I want to tell you to go ahead and book if you want great handiwork that you will be satisfied with. 😃

4 posts installed on front porch. They were efficient and detailed. Only mother nature interfered with this job.

Added a porch covering, overall product turned out very nice. Ruben and Vicky were very easy to work with. Any changes that needed to be made along the way were not an issue. I would recommend them to friends who might need their services in the future.

Excellent and professional work. Danny repaired and painted several areas of our home. While he painted the porch he noticed the job wouldn't look right if he didn't also paint the front door to match. I appreciated him doing the extra to bring it all together. I will be calling him for future repairs.

He installed a backyard porch cover with roof that matched the rest of the house. It was less expensive then other quotes I received. over all the job was done great, as if I asked the house to be built with it.

Lynn completely remade my back porch. He replaced and stained the floor, took the railings off, repainted and replaced them, repaired a leak in the metal roof, enclosed the ceiling rafters with Hardi Plank, and hung two ceiling fans (which involved electrical connections). Weather didn't cooperate, so it took a little longer than anticipated, but was still done well in advance of when I needed it. He even stained my wooden picnic table when he did the floor. It looks beautiful. I have gotten so many compliments.

I needed my old leaking patio cover removed and a new one built to prevent water from flowing off the house into the back door area. Ero's Landscaping did a great job in removing the old structure quickly. After some weather and communication delays, the new structure was built in several days and does a great job in covering my back porch area and diverting rainwater away from the house. And especially it does not leak!! Working with Ero's Landscaping was friendly and easy. They built what I requested and left it open for me to add more at a later date if I want it. I only gave them a 4 star due to the weather delays, which really was out of their hands. Overall they did a very good job. I'd recommend them to others and plan to use them again myself in the future.

Artitectural Homes is a professional company that delivers as expected. Prices are transparent and are not inflated. Workmanship is good. Michael is very attentive and extremely patient with the client. He is also a straight shooter and recognizes when to step in to advise of any cautions or considerations. Michael's long standing, knowledge, and good relationship with the City of West U is a major plus because it facilitates getting the job done. Other contractors in the past have shied away from working in West U due to the complexity of the permit structure which can be bogging at times. Michael is also very creative and always presents credible, efficient and low cost alternatives to the table. I would hire Artitectural homes in a heartbeat. I will let Michael speak for himself and add pictures as appropriate for the work he did for me. We started with a plan to improve the front porch landscape and face lift of my home and expanded into a complete landscape remodel including back yard, patio deck, lighting, drainage, fencing. Scope expanded into a new bathroom design and installation, installation of skylights, kitchen door remodel, and a new garage door. Michael was very respectful and cordial throughout the entire job and I am sure I made him pull some hairs when I redid designs in the middle of the job. It was all for the good of the betterment of the property and at the end we both walked away very satisfied with the work done.

Joshua did a outstanding job on everything I asked him to do. He painted the outside of my house and did the trim. When he was done with the painting I had him put a tin roof cover over my back porch. I had been waiting ten years for that cover. He did a great job! Very reasonable. He also put Sheetrock up on a room that was a shell. I won't hesitate to call him to do more work as I need it. Thanks Joshua! Great job!

I just purchased an old Victorian built in 1900 and as can be imagined needs a lot of remodeling and replacing of deteriorated wood. I could not be more pleased with what JWH Texas Builders has done for me and my goals to invest in a home that has integrity in it's structure and charm to bring forward. My experience with Wade and Jeff was beyond a typical remodeler's efforts to get the job done and get paid. I have the utmost respect for the skills and design talent that these two brought to my project. Water-damaged beams were replaced around the entire house. The house was perfectly level when that portion was completed, allowing then for the total replacement of the very large porch with reclaimed planks (which they acquired from a collector and traveled many miles round-trip) in order for it to look like the original and to fit perfectly, again retaining integrity of materials. Hardiplank was used to replace much of the exterior damage due to many years of neglect, and it is a beautiful and practical compromise. My home required not only the front porch to be repaired, including soffit above, but a need for three other porches. We choose to do a large deck in the back and small porches for easy access as well. I look forward to having JWH return to remodel my kitchen, taking full advantage of their years of design and cabinet-making experience that is a hallmark of their successful trade. Most sincerely, Deborah D.

    I personally know Shawn and he has done so much work for me at my house. He landscaped front and back yard, put up very nice outdoor light fixtures on porch and garage, installed a security system where I could view my home from my iPhone. Removed carpet and installed hardwood floors. Removed old countertops and installed new Formica in kitchen and bath. Installed new lighting in bathrooms and installed new sinks and fixtures. However, his biggest job was remodeling my garage into a man cave. Everytime I need something done, I say, better call Shawn!!

    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.
