I first want to say Ed and his team were top notch from start to finish on my project. I initially had a 1500 square foot shed that was attached to my porch and once Ed's crew got finished I had them complete another demolition project at my residence over in Delaware. Not only did Ed take make sure that I was satisfied through every phase of the project, but he also out on site every day to ensure my utmost satisfaction. Whether it was the superb customer service or effectiveness to complete both projects, make sure you hire EBRR Logistics and Renovations for all your junk/debris removal needs!

Tim was great to work with - he was diligent and hard-working. He repaired our iron porch railing in two evenings, even working into the dark and rain!

I was really pleased with the overall experience with Baiza on my screened porch repair. From the owner to all of the workers on the job, everyone was extremely courteous and treated my home respectfully. The job site was keep clean every day; and when complete, you couldn't even tell that some minor construction took place. There weren't any issues for working around all the inclement weather or my changing work schedule. I wanted to be on-site as much as possible to give input; and they were happy to receive it. I would definitely have Baiza do the work on my next project.

Mr. Burch was polite, skilled, hard-working and great at responding to messages. He fixed cracked mortar on my front porch, back patio and retaining wall, and did a good job. (Actually, he did more than I asked him.) I feel I got great value for money. I would (and will) definitely hire him again.

To say Paul and his friend are amazing is an understatement. Paul solved a toilet clog that had been ongoing for 2 years & we had 2 plumbers before who could not fix it. He was able to remove a towel (accidentally flushed in) that had been stuck deep in the drain for 2 years. Really thankful to the team for fixing a toilet that had been unusable for 2 years. Their charges were very reasonable. Additionally, they also assembled/fixed our porch screen door that had been left partially assembled by a contractor before. The Langway Brothers are amazing. Would recommend them for any job.

Patrick installed a lattice shed under my porch and did an amazing job. His work was so good my neighbors hired him to do work at their house while he was here. His price was very fair and he was very gracious and kind to my wife and kids even bringing the kids a balloon one day. I have been disappointed in the past by handyman but I will definitely be using Patrick again.

GAN Construction was very responsive with the quote for our painting job. Gilberto's estimator showed up at the agreed time and did a thorough walk through of our painting project. We wanted all the trim (rake boards, soffits, porch ceiling, etc.) painted as well as the front door. It was very easy to schedule the work and Gilberto's painting staff showed up at the appointed time and worked very hard to complete the project in 2 days as quoted. We are very pleased with the high quality paint job as well as Gilberto's responsiveness to any questions. The painters also cleaned up very well and everything looks great!

We hired Christian and 5th Gen to do a full gut of our kitchen including opening up a wall to our dining room, plus some work to better integrate the former sleeping porch at the back of the house. From the initial meeting, Christian seemed genuinely interested in our project and in being a good thought partner for us, and that continued throughout the project. 5th Gen is a small, family operation with all of the associated pros and cons. They are helpful, friendly, responsive, and genuinely invested. With limited capacity, it can be hard to nail down a start date, or someone gets sick and hard to reach for a day or two. As they so often do, our scope expanded in the course of the project (along with our budget), but in the end we are SO happy with our kitchen and dining area. Hector, our foreman, was great to work with, and supportive of every crazy question or idea we came up with. If anything, he let us add too much without reigning us in. If your budget is firm, we would recommend pushing for regular timeline and budget updates to ensure you stay on track -- we would have benefited from some earlier communication on that front. All fair and worth it, but would have appreciated more warning. The team seemed to take this feedback very seriously when it was provided, and seems ready to make the adjustments. If a small, flexible operation you can really work with is what you want, 5th Gen is a great choice.

I hired Joseph for several small jobs around my house. Jobs included patching drywall in two rooms, repairing a porch, staining a deck, and inspecting a possible leak from the roof. He was on-site each day and made sure that everything got done to my satisfaction. He's definitely committed to making sure his clients are happy with his work, and I'll be using him again.

Jesus was great! After another company tried to upsell me on expensive work to my front porch that I didn't want or need, "Master Handyman" Jesus Paredes gave me honest information on what repairs I actually needed and offered excellent work at a fair price. The work took less time than expected, and Jesus left me the unused materials so I could return them to Home Depot for a refund, so the project wound up costing less than the original estimate. I will certainly call Master Handyman for future projects -- they do carpentry, painting, electrical, plumbing, drywall, pressure washing and more -- and I would recommend them without hesitation.

D&D repaired my front porch and steps that was crumbling and "off pitch". Darold and his team power washed my concrete and leveled off my porch. They provided the best value of the estimates I received and were usually very responsive. They are knowledgeable and have a lot of experience in the industry. I had a bit of a hard time getting the work scheduled but all in all, very happy with the finished product and appreciate the effort. Thanks!

Greg with Phoenix Design Build Group did an excellent job on our porch project. He communicated in a timely, professional, and effective way any necessary updates. He paid attention to detail and did an excellent job replacing our porch and beam column. We will use him again for our next project.

The folks at GET Home Improvement were great. Very responsive and brought someone out to do the job (in my case, deck staining and re-painting my front porch) within 2 days of doing a site visit. The folks who came to do the work even offered to take care of a landscaping issue I’ve been having which was much appreciated! So I really got 2 jobs done at once, all of which were of good quality. I recommend working with GET for any of your home needs, as they seem to be a jack of all trades.

We hired Steve to replace our deck (~380 sq ft) and build a screened in porch on most of it. His crew did a fantastic job and were very nice. Worked long hours to complete the job on time. Every detail was accounted for including little touches for molding. Highly recommend.

Kellye and Emilio were great! They removed and re-poured a concrete patio that was riddled with cracks. New patio looks great, they were fast, very professional, and great a great price. I'm already planing my next project with Emilio and cant wait to work with them again!

Steve and his crew were fantastic to work with. They replaced the posts on my porch and I couldn't be happier with the work. Steve is truly a great guy to work with. My wife and I are first time home buyers and he took the time to explain what his plan was from start to finish. Not only that, but he even saved us money by only fixing things that needed to be repaired. I can't say enough good things about my experience with Fairway Construction. They will be the first people I call the next time I need work done on my house.

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.
