We were exceeding pleased with the work that EBRR Property Maintenance Services performed for us - a new driveway, walkway and garden wall. We also worked with Ed Bilo, he and the entire work staff were extremely professional, attentive to our ideas and a source of excellent advice. We will certainly use them for a variety of other lawn issues that we have in mind.

Great craftsmanship, professional, and easy to communicate with. Worked with my schedule to complete the project according to my timeline. My bed was put together perfectly, and headboard mounted into masonry. I find a common theme amongst contractors in that they don't clean up after themselves, leaving saw dust and waste materials for the home owner to clean. While I did have to do some fine tuning in the cleaning department, Trenton did at least attempt to clean up the area by picking up and disposing of the larger waste pieces. I would definitely hire him again.

Tim worked on various installations and assemblies, like assembling a stepping stool, wooden futon, and installing towel racks and curtain rods, etc. He is a hard worker and seems to have endless energy. I have been very happy with the above mentioned work, and found that he was willing to go the extra mile to deal with problems encountered along the way, e.g. a weird plastic piece appearing on what was supposed to be a bronze metal towel rack, so he did nifty things to hide the plastic. However, more recently, an assignment he had happily accepted--to build two side tables and a coat rack--had to be aborted. Unfortunately that was after lots and lots of time had passed, I wished he had called it off or not accepted the assignment in the first place unless he could see it through, so that I could have had the items done by someone else long ago, as I was desperate to get several home improvement things out of the way. The side tables--which are pretty--were done for the most part but not fully (I still need to find another woodworker to do the unfinished business) and the coat rack was not done at all. Somehow his heart was simply not in it anymore, but would have been better to just straightforwardly cancel a job rather than dragging things out. This is why I am giving 4 instead of 5 stars. He did feel bad about how things went with these three pieces and therefore didn't charge me for one of the side tables.

Antonio was wonderful. He was clean, efficient, and very knowledgeable. He installed a new kitchen faucet and repaired a fence gate. I would definitely hire him again.

I was delighted by my experience working with Ordonez. He installed a marble backsplash in my kitchen. His price was competitive but it was his conscientiousness, thoroughness, and commitment to excellence that impressed me the most. I’ve worked with many home contractors, and this is one of the best. Fully recommend!

We've hired many contractors on Thumbtack for various projects. David stands out head and shoulders above everyone else. He is the hardest working contractor I've ever worked with. He completed an interior door installation that had very specific and odd requirements. His problem solving skills, craftsmanship and attention to detail are meticulous. I will be hiring him again without hesitation. He cleaned up after the project and left my house cleaner than it was before he came over. Thank you so much David, it was great meeting you and I look forward to using your services again!

Last Spring, Brandon Contractor LLC completed several projects in my home with excellent quality and customer service! I had recently purchased a foreclosure and was looking for a reliable contractor to complete a few projects. Mr. Vega and I met so that I could share my vision for the projects that I wanted completed - a small window cut in the wall above the kitchen sinking looking into the living room, refinishing the front door, backsplash in the kitchen and painting the upstair hallway and stairway. We met to pick out materials and I was allowed to provide my input as well as receive suggestions from Mr. Vega that would improve the overall job. When the work begun, a possible concern was noted by Mr. Vega and his team with plumbing. It was addressed immediately. All of the projects were completed in a timely manner and I am extremely satisfied with the outcome! The team was professional, courteous and the pricing was great! I often receive complements from visitors to my home and I plan to use the company again in the near future to spruce up my patio. I highly recommend Brandon Contractor LLC for any of your home improvement projects!

We hired Patrick to built a custom banister-to-wall baby gate in our house. The project offered some unique challenges, but Patrick did a great job fleshing out the details and working through the project with me over email and over the phone. We are incredibly pleased with the result and highly recommend him.

Stephen replaced a wood piece of my son's bed that had split. He used oak wood that is stronger then the piece he replaced. He did it onsite in about 75 mins and was professional and quick. Thanks!

Henry did a fabulous job tiling our fireplace with marble herringbone mosaic tiles and we couldn't be happier with the finished product. Henry took care of lots of little details and carpentry to get everything just right, he's really quite the artist. I would highly recommend his services, he does outstanding work for a very fair price. We can't wait to have him back to do more jobs around our house.

Had a great experience using J-Team for a utility sink repair (that fell from the wall and broke the drain pipe). I received a very reasonable preliminary quote through Thumbtack and his subsequent complimentary visit to assess the work matched that price. The work turned out to be a little trickier and longer than anticipated but it gone done very well. I liked it so much I've already asked for quotes for additional things I need done in the house (from bathroom caulking to a kitchen backsplash installation). Jaime is a great guy and I recommend him!

"Wow", would describe the work by GWS. I begin with their promptness-they said they'd be at my house at 7:30am, they were knocking at 7:20am. Second, their quickness-I was promised a 2-day job, the entire 13x14 dining room was tiled and grouted in 1 day! Lastly, their attention to detail-they were able to evenly match the new tile with the existing tile in the adjoining room, despite roadblocks that popped up. I would definitely use them again. Pride in their work results in customer satisfaction!

GET Home Improvement and Cleaning LLC completed both inside and outside the house projects. Inside the house, GET Home demoed, framed, drywalled, sistered a joist brace, painted, completed the trim, installed hardwood railing, doors, and corrected the toilet connection. In all three county inspections (framing, pre-conseal, final), Arlington county inspectors reviewed and passed GET’s interior work in the first inspection. Outside the house, GET Home power washed the large patio, stripped and painted a wooden front porch cover and cleaned the property. Overall, I was very satisfied with GET Home’s work and professionalism.

Cesar and his team gutted our entire bathroom, retiled the tub area and floor, and replaced all the fixtures, medicine cabinet, lighting, etc. They also installed a new fan and recessed lighting in the tub area and primed and painted the bathroom. The bath now looks like something out of House Beautiful. This was BY FAR the easiest reno we've ever done. Cesar and his assistant provided the labor and he gave us a very detailed list of everything we would need to purchase. He recommended a tub and ceiling fan and told us how to order large items from Home Depot so they would be in the "pro area" for his pickup. We investigated granite counter tops and picked out the slab and sink we wanted but Cesar saved us a fortune by picking up the counter top from the fabricator and installing it himself - perfectly. The job was more difficult because the opening for the vanity was a non-standard 47 1/2 inches and vanities come in 48 inches, but they completed everything flawlessly. Cesar and his team arrived at exactly 8 AM every morning and were immaculate about cleaning and bagging refuse. We received estimates from companies who do all the buying and installing and they were $5000-7000 more! Even the all-labor estimates were higher. Cesar did an amazing job, was totally reliable, and saved us a fortune.

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.
