Replaced wood floor of upper deck. Good craftsmanship and attention to detail. Prompt. Worked 13 hours through yesterday's rain showers to get the job done before our expected big storms.

Joe was great. He did great work, was very friendly and super up front about costs. He took all the time needed to get the work done even though it took longer than anticipated. Would definitely recommend and we will be using him to rebuild a deck in the future.

TX Modern built one of the prettiest decks with railing I have ever seen for a very reasonable price. I would definitely hire them again. I showed them a magazine picture and they built it in less than 1 day.

Cris Melchor of Hawk Custom Work did an excellent, professional job on deck and railing repair. Cris is a very hard worker with extremely high energy and he finished the work within the deadline we requested. He is cheerful and very agreeable to work with. I felt that his expertise for everything I asked him to do was very high. Cris is a winner. I will certainly contract with him again.

Erwin and helper both worked hard in the hot sun all day to complete the project. They showed expertise and kept me informed of the details. My project was the replacement of a rotted staircase on the end of my deck. The replacement quality is so much better that I expect the stair case to last twice as long as the original. Cost, start and finish time were as advertised. I would recommend the company without hesitation.

Marco and his guys do great work. I hired them to build a fence & refurbish an entire deck. The work was done on budget & on time. Since that first job, I've had them back for a plumbing issue that required sheet rock replacement. Their most recent project for us was a complete redesign and landscaping of our entire back yard. We are very pleased with the results. Marco & his crew are great!

Elizabeth is absolutely wonderful. She is a delight and has an excellent eye. She is very detail oriented and treats your project like it was her own home. Elizabeth power washed our house and painted our deck. Now it looks like we have a new deck and new siding on our house. She is my new go to handy ma'am for all my house projects. Hire her! You won't regret it!

I would like to share that I thought my fence built in 2006 was pretty much ready to be tossed, but I called Bud Goff (he does fences/decks/home repair), and he did an amazing job of adding MANY, MANY more years of life to my fence. He powerwashed it and my driveway (which turned out to be super dirty), he repaired broken posts, broken pickets, added a middle third rail for support and stained/sealed it. All of this for a fraction of the cost of a new fence. Really fair prices. He even caulked up some open seams on the side of my house to be nice. He came out the day after I called him, gave me a quote and finished the project quickly. He arrived early each day of the project. His phone number is 512-939-1182, in case you need it.

Bill is a gem. He built our 18x16ft deck in a little over a week so that we could use it for our baby shower. The deck was well priced and turned out beautiful and well-constructed. Bill is professional and a genuinely nice guy - someone you can trust. I've already given his contact information to people I know looking to build a deck - I'd definitely recommend him!

Excellent service from Wayne at Solutions for Construction and Septic. He was prompt, showed up when he said he would, communicated via text, did a fabulous job on the deck stairway project, the bill was exactly what he bid it as, and was very reasonable. I have hired him again for another project.

I asked Jared from Cajun Stain and Steal to clean and stain over 200 linear feet of a six foot privacy fence and he did a wonderful job. He gave me the best deal of the three estimates I gathered, was very responsive with communications, was always on time, and worked around my schedule to ensure everything was done to my satisfaction. He also wouldn't accept any payment until I was fully satisfied. I have dealt with a lot of contractors since I have fully remodeled my 50-year-old house and Jared is right up there at the top of the list. I would gladly do business with him again in the future. Definitely give him a call if you're considering fence or deck work!

Paradise Decks was completely awesome! This was not a simple deck. We had to work with easement restrictions and have HOA and city code approval with designs submitted. From Christina who met us for the initial sketches through Jamie who worked through many phone calls to design the deck and Rick who managed the whole process and had great design ideas. Ignacio and his install crew were absolute craftsmen and professionals who extended one extra day to modify a completed end of the deck to make one more design change. Rick handled this entire process for one very fair price. When it's time to replace that crumbling deck your builder put in just few years ago, this is the company you want to contact.

I know it's a bit long but I'd figure i will share my experience with Miki. So my wife wanted me to build a deck for our mobile home. First off, I'm no carpenter and second, I wouldn't know where to start.. I contacted several referrals and they came and did an estimate. Miki reached out to me. Came and though he quoted me a bit higher than most handyman. I'd figure I'd give him a chance. he took the time to explain the process from start to finish. Not only that. He believes in doing the work right the first time. He took his time with no shortcuts. Him and his partner finished building the deck in 1 weekend I have to say I had my doubts at first. I mean I was paying a little extra but I'll be the first to tell you, itwas worth every penny and then some. plain and simple I was impressed... The quality that miki put into it and the result of the finished deck was amazing! Miki is my new go to guy who I will refer any chance I get.

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.
