Keith was extremely professional, considerate and timely. He always responded promptly to messages and let us know up front what to expect. He is very personable and a true craftsman. Our fence looks fantastic and the double gates on both sides are just what we wanted. Keith does excellent work and we highly recommend him. Look no further and hire him now. 😊

I am very pleased with the exterior stair rails and banister that Greg built and installed on my home. They are well made and will last for years. Greg is very personable and easy to work with. He is an excellent carpenter and designer. He came when he said he would and left the area spotless. I have another project for him as soon as he can get to it.

When first meeting Steve Rohr, I was impressed with his patience and time going over my job, ways we might reduce some costs and how he would approach the project. He is both repairing and renovating my townhouse, including laying new floors and refinishing others. He also is painting the entire interior. He is an impressive painter, a capable carpenter and a terrific handyman. Moreover, he is sensitive to working around my schedule. I highly recommend Steve Rohr. His extensive experience in major construction - and his enjoyment of smaller jobs - create the perfect combination of a general contractor with knowledge, expertise and top customer service. His bid also beat out that of another qualified contractor. Steve is the ultimate professional - and an honest, decent businessman . Hire him!

David and Vicki Barrett and their son have helped us with numerous home renovation projects over the years. They have always been extremely professional and even more importantly very trustworthy. We have had some bad experiences with contractors in the past, and the Barretts have restored our faith in honest, qualified, and capable contractors. The quality of their work is exceptional, and they are always a pleasure to work with. David is a master carpenter - He has built us beautiful custom cabinetry in our family room, powder room, and room over our garage. His work has held up extremely well to the rigors of daily family life! An added bonus - both David and Vicki are very personable and flexible and so we always look forward to working with them when it comes time to start the next renovation project. We would highly recommend David Barrett and Son for any of your home renovation/ building needs!

I've just completed a second story remodel of my home, with nearly every room comprised of built-in cabinetry. I'm pleased to say that our expectations were surpassed, much due to master carpenter Boris Reynolds. Boris has a talent for matching my "custom" needs with design ideas that resulted in fabulous cabinetry. He designed with the use of his computer which showed us exactly how the finished cabinetry would look. When he found design flaws, he would resolve those problems and present only solutions to me, which were always perfect! His eye for detail is unsurpassed. He completed projects on his projected time table and for the price he quoted, and his communication skills are excellent. He even stepped up to complete "problem" projects that previous cabinet makers had created. Boris is extremely professional, conscientious, reliable and easy to work with. Thank you Boris!

Ric has helped me with household jobs many times over the last 12 years. He has always been professional, courteous, and competent at whatever he does. He has helped with repairs of every variety recently replacing damaged wood on the side of the house, repairing ceilings after water leaks, and putting up fence boards after tree damage. But in addition to this he is a talented carpenter and has built and installed a wall of bookshelves in my home. Also redid the kitchen cabinets and laid wood flooring in the kitchen. His work is outstanding!

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.
