Slava is extremely professional and did an amazing job wiring and installing under cabinet lighting, removing granite backsplash, and installing glass tile backsplash. He was prompt, courteous and his prices are very fair. I will definitely call him again for future projects!

We were wanting to rebuild our stairs to create a pantry underneath. We needed help building the stringers and we did the rest of the work. Fred did a great job cutting them and his price was reasonable. He said we could contact him if we had any problems with the installation. We did run into an issue and ended up calling him, he was there to help us.

I called David on Monday and he started work that Friday. I had already called Hercules Fences and Chesapeake Fences - neither company called me back. David's prices were reasonable - especially since he was building the fence, not using premade pickets. The wood he used was weather treated. We found a couple pickets that we didn't like for cosmetic reasons, and David replaced them no questions asked. He made sure that the gates opened smoothly and didn't drag on the ground. He said that if there was ever anything broken over the years to just call him and he will replace the broken piece at cost. Over all a very professional guy. The fence looks great and we couldn't be happier. We are using him again to work on our pergola.

They just finished my patio and fence installation. I will definitely be hiring them again for future projects. Hemi was so polite and courteous. My patio looks amazing and the fence is awesome. They also gave me a good price on both the patio and the fence. They cleaned up after themselves as well. Very professional.

When I hired Bordeaux Construction I was surprised they could get to my driveway as quick as they did. It was a very large 2 car drive way and they had to use a Bobcat to dig it out to set the forms. There was minimal damage to the yard. The following day they poured the concrete. They are a professional crew and got the job done very fast. They also had to take down some fencing and re- install it afterwards. My yard went from grass and dirt to concrete in almost 48 hours. Simply amazing I saved over $500.00 over the other estimates I received.The price was excellent and the work virtually flawless. I would recommend them for any concrete work. They also do many other things around the house as well. You cannot go wrong with this company. I also check with the licensing board and the better business bureau they have no complaints in 13 years of business. Thumbs up.

Don called me soon after I posted my project(s). He wasn't available immediately for an urgent plumbing issue, so he had one of his subcontractors call me. Long story short, "TJ" came out with "Will" within hours of my contact with Don. They not only fixed the issue, they did it for less than half of what my plumber was going to charge me for JUST work on the pipes, which had to be accessed through an exterior wall. TJ and Will were professional, knowledgeable, and experienced, and also patient with my questions while they completed the work. Additionally, TJ purchased upgraded products to complete the project, to ensure my pipes would be protected from weather-related future issues. I have never seen such thorough work. When they finished, they cleaned the entire section of siding on the house, AND the brick patio next to it. It looked better when they finished than it did before they started. They were the best contractors I have ever had work on any project in any home I have ever owned, and am a convinced major fan of both Don, who had sympathy for the difficulty I was having finding someone and his sending out these two, and TJ and Will for doing a spectacular job.

Ennis enterprises replaced my 20 year old wood fence with a vinyl fence. He was on time, and did a great job. He worked with me in the decision making process as I was undecided with what I wanted to put up. Recommend him for your fencing needs

We hired DUCK to do several projects in our home. They included finishing some baseboards, creating framework/cover for a bathtub pump, adding a railing to our stairwell, fixing a shower leaking from the second to the first floor, and re-working our upstairs book shelf to be able to hinge outward and add a nice framework to it. We are pleased with the results and feel that we definitely got what we envisioned. We'd hire again. Thank you!

Brandon and team did an amazing job on a challenging fence installation. Brandon was polite, knowledgeable and patient with me as I explored (and explored and explored) various fence options before finding one that I was happy with and that met my budget. In addition to building a custom fence for a picky customer, the team had to contend with concrete-like soil, mosquito infestation, poison ivy and crazy downpours... and yet, they never complained-- not one of them. When we ran into a rainy spell, I felt sure that the project would be delayed, but nope... they pitched a couple of tents and kept going. Customer service like that is rare. I'd hire them again for sure!

Overall I am satisfied with the outcome of the flooring, however the customer experience portion left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I was getting bamboo flooring installed and had several questions about things suggested by the manufacturer and that I had read online (i.e. acclimation time.) I found Mr. Moore to be very condescending and rude. Everytime I asked a question about the flooring and the things I had read, he rolled his eyes, talked down to me, and made me very uncomfortable. He seemed to be very irritated throughout the job. I have no complaints about the workmanship, but people skills and customer appreciation could use improvement.

Jessica was fantastic - great communication, on time for estimate. Contractor showed up on time - job estimated at 3 days, took 4 (day 1 - 4 hours, day 2 -7 hours, day 3 - 6 hours, day 4 -3 hours). Thought they could have worked longer on day 1 and would have finished on time. Weather prevented them from finishing on the 3rd day. (Jessica supposed to provide me with extra tile and grout - still waiting, but confident I will get it). Overall good experience.

Tim has done housework and yard work for us. He is trustworthy, timely, and hard working. He wants to make the customer happy. I have even asked him to do additional work after he was done with the original work, and he was more than happy to help. For an older couple, this is a huge thing for us. We will use Tim again! You will be very satisfied with his work. And he is very reasonable in pricing! Happy Hardy family

Outstanding work ethic and ability to communicate details of work required as to cost, quality and customer satisfaction. A small roofing job to start with but additional roof repair was needed to complete which was accomplished on time at a minimum additional cost.

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.
