Sean and his team are reliable, work fast and are very professional. He was very attentive and did a great job in building a beautiful, quality pergola and deck for us, within our very short time-frame. He took our ideas and created a vision that was exactly what we wanted and more. My husband and I would definitely recommend Twin City Fence & Construction!

Our experience could not have been any better! From the initial meeting we knew Lightning was the right fit for us and we had already met with several Contractors prior and had more scheduled to meet that we actually canceled right after our meeting to get started with Lightning right away. Billy was our Project Man and before we even hired them he gave us a 3D color design that was exactly what we imagined. He even said to keep it if we went with another contractor so that they could do it exactly how we wanted it! He was the only one who provided us with a detailed design, schedule, and proposal breakdown and he did so without charging us a penny! I was sceptical initially as the other contractors were pushy, the other quotes were vague, hard to understand, and they were reluctant to explain which is why meeting with Lightning and seeing the 3D Rendering which they explained in detail to us was such a relief. I never imagined the finish product would be even better than the 3D rendering either, but when he knocked on my door to ask me to take a look on the final day, I felt like I was seeing my husband dream and my dream together for the first time even though I had been there the whole time! We started out just getting a new composite patio even though they gave us a proposal for everything, but we ended up using them for our entire outdoor space after the patio turned out perfect and better than the picture. We did a full outdoor kitchen with a brick pizza oven, grill, sink, and refrigerator, a huge travertine patio with a covered pergola and mosquito screen, several ceiling fans and power outlets, a fire pit with built in seating, a water feature with a waterfall and coy pond, and in-ground spa and could not be more pleased with everything. My husband is even wanting to get them to come back to do our indoor kitchen counters in the same concrete after seeing Billy's custom job with the outdoor countertop and bartop and we have very nice marble in there already Ha! They even mounted and installed my husband's misting system and televisions at no charge and told me "they couldn't deliver an unfinished product to us that we could not use and relax with right away." I was speechless to say the least. The only thing we are unhappy about is not having more work for that young man and his team as my husband and I haven't had such an exciting experience at home in years. If you are considering any outdoor improvements or projects you need to email me as this review does not do Lightning and our experience with them justice at all. It is very apparent that they do this because they love it as they treated our dream as if it was their own! My email is mkmizer1957@gmail.com. If you are hiring Lightning then be sure to ask for Billy as he really is an incredibly talented young man and took such good care of us, our property, and made our dream a reality! Thank you Lightning and Thank you Billy for such a wonderful job well done! Sincerely, Mr. & Mrs. James Edward & Mary Katherine Mizer MKMizer1957@gmail.com

From the beginning of my project I was a newb and contacted about 10 contractors before selecting Paverock! I chose Paverock because Ken took the time to explain the various materials used in making patios and what would best meet my needs (i.e., design, yard and finances)! No one else did that. Their website is professional and helpful. Ken was professional from the beginning and was very patient with all of my questions and what felt like nagging to me on my part. He told me once my project began it would take only a week, and it took only a week! The guys doing the work were nice and left the yard as neat as possible each day when leaving; a large tarp covered the space to prevent the rain from filling it before work began, etc. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with the design he came up with for me and all of the work! I am now having him complete a pergola for me and hopefully some additional work in the near future (e.g., front porch/walk)! When you choose Paverock you'll have a beautiful addition to your home that you'll be proud of for years!

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.
