Cesar was very professional and built my complicated bed, set of drawers, desk, and living room couch from ikea. He was much faster and more efficient than the builder that my friend hired. His price was very fair especially for his work.

Eagle Home improvements did a fantastic job repairing a pipe that burst due to faulty labor from my home builder. They showed me the damage, repaired it quickly, and ensured I knew how to properly shut off the water in the future. I will definitely use them again in the future. They were easy to work with and communicated clearly through Thumbtack throughout the process. I wish every service provider were as easy to work with as Eagle Home.

I hired Lee to install crown molding throughout the living room in my condo. His communication from start to finish was amazing. They arrived early in the morning and got to work right away. They did an amazing job on the crown mold installation. Painting, caulking etc. I would def recommend them to anybody looking for a carpenter and I will def use his services again when needed!

Gio was awesome. He was great at communicating when I submitted my request for an estimate, came out to the house to give an estimate quickly, and his estimate was accurate (no surprise charges). The work was done quickly and was done very well. Gio checked with us on important decisions and adjusted based on our feedback. We are thrilled with the new Trex decking and they also pressure washed and sealed the rest of the wood parts of the deck and it looks brand new. We would definitely work with gios builders again for future work we have planned for our house (kitchen renovation in a couple of years) and anything else that comes up.

Nicodemo Blanco (Nico) has been my painter in two large Potomac homes for over twenty years. His knowledge in the field of painting is extensive. His work is impeccable. Nico has helped me with various carpentry and handyman projects as well. He is always cheerful and goes above and beyond to complete a job to the highest standards. His paint prep. and painting is second to none; his work ethic is A+. I am a fastidious homeowner requiring anyone working in my home to be clean and top notch. I couldn't ask for a greater painter than Nico. He leaves my home neat and beautiful. I highly recommend Nico.

I am an Architect and have worked with Saul on several projects. Throughout my years of practice I have worked with and around many Contractors, my experience with Saul is he is honest, sincere and straight forward with customers. These are admirable qualities in a builder, I say this because a straight forward and sincere builder excepts the risk of a not so forthright Contractor coming behind them and telling a customer what may not be a proper and professional assessment. Saul excepts this risk knowing it's the right thing to do.

Very please with my experience. Stephen was very patient and took his time installing the door. The precision of doing it right the first time was extremely important to him. I plan in the future to use him for four additional projects since I will be moving into a bigger home with my family. We spoke as he was installing the door, and decided to make him our permanent contractor. I recommend his services! Crazy how my neighbors also endorsed his work only seeing the replaced door that he installed the same day.

I wanted to finish a large basement with a gym and dance room. Daniel and his Black Diamond team are all professional craftsmen and completed the entire basement beyond my expectations. Communication is excellent, walking you through the daily activities, inspecting the work, and making sure you know what the plan is for the next day. Would definitely use Black Diamond again.

Al sent us a carpenter - Mark - who was great. He was very proficient in his work - and worked basically unnoticed by us - with very little noise and almost no disturbance. He was able to quickly adjust to small difficulties (due to the backing of our cabinets), and finished his job quicker than expected. All around great experience - and would be happy to go with them again. Thanks again, to both Al and Mark!

Look no further. Juan is one of the best painters I've ever met. From the beginning of my search Juan's work and professionalism stood out among the others. As soon as I saw Juans portfolio online, I knew he was the right one for me. He is more than a painter. He's a carpenter, a handyman, and so much more. After all, that's really what folks need in a good painter. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Juan was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. When he was running late for his appointment, he called to let me know. Once reviewing my project, he allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Juan is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. He finished his job ahead of schedule and completed other tasks I asked if he could do. I am very pleased with the final results. He painted the entire interior of my home and kept a keen eye for fine detail throughout. I highly recommend Juan and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a painter, you now know who to call.

Dennis is the first contractor I have worked with that actually called me back. He is very prompt and very professional. His crew was very respectful of my property and cleaned up the job site at the end of each day. Eugene is one of the best carpenters I have had the pleasure to work with and the deck he built for us is the envy of the neighborhood.

John does great work! He made two cabinets and a molding for our house that fit perfectly in the rooms. They look great and were completed when he said they would be. I highly recommend John as an excellent carpenter and cabinet maker.

After interviewing several builders, my wife and I selected Winthorpe Design & Build based on previous projects. Scott and his staff were attentive during the pre-construction phase, the building phase and remain so many months after the project was completed. Krag (Designer/Estimator was very close to being on budget (after several changes we had made) and in the end Winthorpe’s craftsmanship exceeded our expectations. We have received numerous complements about our home and are happy when people drop by and ask "who built your home?". I would hire his firm again but that won't be necessary, my wife & I are living in our dream house with the security that it was well designed and built. We had a few questions after moving in and Krag came out to walk through (again) to explain how some of the high tech items we wanted worked (media room,security system and the whole house stereo, lights and window shades (all wireless and that are controlled by our tablets & phones ).

God dings contracting was perfect for our family's needs. Mike and his wife Janeane were very professional and went above and beyond to make sure the best quality work was put into finishing our basement. They did not cut any corners and even did parts of the work themselves, instead of contracting out, in order to meet our budget. They walked us through every single step and decision and ensured that we fully understood everything. When complications in the project arose, like permit/code issues or insufficiencies in the original builders work, Mike did everything possible to make the necessary adjustments in the most cost effective ways. He even went down to the county with my husband to work out permit issues. And most importantly, I never had to worry about leaving them in our home with workers going in and out; they made sure we were comfortable with all aspects of the job. I couldn't be more pleased with the work that they did on our home.

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 you tip cabinet installers?

In general, home service providers such as electricians, plumbers and contractors are professionals who don’t expect tips. They expect to do a job for you for the specific price they quoted. Of course, they may appreciate a tip for a job particularly well done or for which they’ve gone beyond what’s normally expected, such as completing the project early or under budget. Even better than a tip, it’s always appropriate to leave a positive review online after a good experience.

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.

How much is custom cabinetry?

Custom cabinets can be built for any room, including bedroom closets and built-in armoires. Measured carefully and built precisely, custom cabinetry can increase storage and beautify any room. The national average for building custom cabinets ranges from $500 to $1,200 per linear foot. The cost is highly variable because there are so many styles, colors, glazes and other options. In general, the linear footage of the cabinets, the materials used to build them, and the cost of the labor will determine the cost. Solid wood costs more than plywood and wood veneer, and costs vary among different types of wood; maple and cherry cabinets are more expensive than pine. Glass-front cabinets can cost more, as can decorative hinges, handles and door pulls, which can cost $2-$45 each; choose carefully to stay within your budget and pull off the exact look you’re going for. Some carpenters also charge for installation, on average $100 per cabinet box. Additional molding and trim, such as crown molding at the ceiling, cost an average of $70 per 8-foot section, and adding finished ends to exposed cabinets averages $100-$200.

How much does it cost to have kitchen cabinets installed?

In any kitchen, the cabinets are the main focus, so you want to make sure new or replacement cabinets are installed correctly. A professional carpenter can properly, securely mount new cabinets to the wall; the national average cost for this service is $7,725, although the cost varies widely depending on the type of cabinets, their material and their size, and the accessories you add. A typical fee is $70 per linear foot to remove existing cabinets and assemble and install new ones; the cost is less if you do the demolition and removal yourself. Stock cabinets are the least expensive to have installed, ranging from $75 to $400 each; semi-custom cabinets range from $150 to $900 each; and custom cabinets cost from $500 to $1,400 each. Wood cabinets are more expensive than those made from plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and finished with a laminate. Wood cabinets range in cost from $80 to $160 per linear foot. Laminate-finished cabinets cost $35 to $75 per linear foot, on average.
