Install a TV mounting frame on stone fireplace front wall, I would highly recommend Arbor Beam - Custom Building Improvement. Lloyd Byler was excellent. Great communication/feedback about the job and options available and a first class finish, all at a very competitive price. The job was completed quickly and looks great. A very genuine person, will definitely use again. Gerry Brown

I have a gorgeous pergola for the wife and picnic tables for myself (with Ice chests built in). Heard about the business from a friend in Boerne and he was willing to travel to Houston to do the work. Everything is beautiful and the wood, high quality took him 2 1/2 days. I have had them in for 3 months now and still no issues. Will be ordering 2 more tables and an Ice chest for the summer!

This was a great experience, and we will hire him again. Great skills, able to do all sorts of works and knowledgeable. Geno was on time, cheerful, tidy, and generous with his time and attention to detail. We had him do things as diverse as check a roof, build a custom cedar gate and arbor on-site, replace the mexchanism on a broken toilet, and repair some table lights with faulty wiring. A+ experience on all accounts, highly recommend.

When we were looking to install a custom quarter circle patio cover/arbor in our yard, Chris French came recommended by the team that repaired our backyard fence. Chris was prompt and helpful in returning my phone calls, and came out one evening to spend over an hour walking our yard and describing the materials and scope of the project. He quoted a very reasonable price when compared with other quotes I had received. He worked with our painter to have the wood for the arbor stained prior to installation. There was a delay in obtaining a custom part, which I don't think was Chris' fault, and he kept me informed of progress in preparing for our job. His team did a great job with installation and the arbor is gorgeous. We are very happy with French's Custom Outdoor Concepts.

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.
