"Full disclosure-i did not use Taskabee Hive (or any other company) to take care of my lawn. I ended up mowing it myself, as I had a small area to mow, and I borrowed a mower to do it (mine was broken). My 5-star review is strictly for my overall interaction with Taskabee Hive. The owner responded to me at 6am (I submitted an inquiry at 2am!). Unfortunately, I did not see his response until much later in the day. He gave me an estimate based on my description of the lawn. I described the job as a small back yard area with a patch of very overgrown weeds. I thought the estimate was high, as the back yard is literally just a strip/path of grass in either side of a concrete walkway. I explained this to the owner. He offered a discount, and suggested I send photos so he could give a closer estimate of the rate for the job. He stated that he wanted to do what he could to help me out. He stated that if I could get back with him immediately, he would have the job done today; otherwise by late afternoon the following day. Unfortunately, when I later saw his response, my neighbor had offered his mower, and I’d already cut the grass. I know this post is long. But I value good customer service , and I want to be fair and honest. Taskabee Hive did not do any work for me. But the owner’s punctual responses, his willingness to do all he could to help me, and to negotiate or offer me the best rates he could—these virtues warrant a great rating for customer service. Many companies and individuals miss the mark for that these days."

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.
