John did a great job mounting our TV above our corner fireplace. He also helped troubleshoot an electrical problem with an exterior outlet. In addition, I had John install lattice work around the base of our porch. He was very courteous, neat and organized. We will have him back to do some other projects.

I worked with John directly to replace my front porch flooring and rotted joist. He was quick to provide a quote and stuck to his number, while still remaining flexible to the project's needs. His crew was timely, efficient and friendly. We are thrilled with the finished product, I highly recommend Service One for your carpentry needs.

Chris did an excellent job installing our porch ceiling fan. We had a sleeping baby upstairs and he was very mindful of this which was well appreciated. He was also very responsive, punctual, and efficient with his time. You could also tell that he has a wealth of experience. All around positive experience.

I would highly recommend Rae's Masonry for a project at your home or business.  When I called about an estimate,  Mr. Rae personally came to my home to assist me in designing my project, which consisted of repairing/replacing the bricks and slate on my front porch; building new steps and a walkway; and putting cobblestone pavers aside my driveway.  His estimate was very reasonable; which helped me stay within my project budget.  My neighbors were impressed by the craftsmanship and speed of his workers' performance. The brick masons were professional and and courteous by keeping the onsite materials organized and cleaned up their work area. They used quality materials that will keep my home looking beautiful for years to come. Masonry construction may be a lost art form to some,  but i believe it adds a classic, authentic feel to a home. Masonry unequivocally is the best choice for any home because it never goes out of style.  When I visited Shade and Wise Brick Company to choose my bricks, the representatives spoke highly of my contractor and said that Rae's Masonry would do a great job on my project. This gave me an extra comfort that this company would do a great job! Give Rae's Masonry a chance to turn your vision into reality!

After changing dates because of the rainy weather his crew showed up and went directly to work. They worked quickly and constantly until my porch was repaired. I will be using them again and will recommend to others.

Jorge has completed numerous projects for me as I update and renovate my home. He is prompt, courteous, has assistance from his wife and son, is trustworthy, reasonable, and efficient. Most importantly he is honest. He first assesses the project, then sends a written estimate via email, gives a starting date, and cleans up after he completes each task. He buys the materials and brings them to the job. He saves me worry and time. He has completed the following projects for me: 1. Repaired drywall where I had had a water leak and painted the ceiling. 2. Painted all of my wood trim and turned it white. (Totally changed the brightness of the rooms). Has painted 5 rooms. 3. Removed wall paper and painted walls in a 2 story foyer. (his wife Monica cuts paint like no one I have ever known). 4. Removed and painted shutters and rebuilt several to avoid the cost of having custom wooden shutters made. (Very impressive work) 5. Removed a set of brick steps and replaced with new, "fake" wood steps, installed a railing. Rebuilt steps in my garage and installed a handrail. 6. Removed chipped paint and touched up white trim on the exterior ( house has 20 windows on the front). 7. Hung a double rear door that was custom made and has windows above it. 8. Built columns, hung a swing, painted porch ceiling... I have probably forgotten some projects. He has a wonderful work ethic and is pleasant. I could include photos, but I do not know how to do that!

Diane and her crew are extremely professional, friendly and responsive. It was a pleasure working with them. This job started out as a window replacement, but Diane recommended that she reglaze the existing wooden windows rather than replace with vinyl. In addition to reglazing the windows, Diane was able to complete many other items around the house including painting doors, trim, windows, ceilings, porch posts, and stair railings. They also were able to powerwash the house, porch, and walkway! Diane's crew has committed to returning in about a month or so to complete work cleaning up the windows once the glazing has fully set. Other than that, everything is done and looks great. Diane and her crew were punctual, flexible, and enjoyable to work with. I will look to them in the future.

I was very impressed with the work Brian did for me. He installed an attic fan, repaired a ceiling with water damage and made repairs to my front porch. I am extremely satisfied with his work and his ethics. I will be asking him to do other things soon. Brian was always on time and came to my home when he said he would.

Kevin from Priority Home Works did a fantastic job. We needed him to repair woodwork at the edge of the roof where it meets the supports for the front porch. The rot​ had set in. He made the repair and even matched the paint. We were so pleased we had him come in and do more repairs, a decorative beam had fallen from the ceiling in the family room, and there was more rot along the fascia. Again he took care of business. I have recommended him to everybody I know that need a woodworking contractor.

We had an existing deck converted to a screened porch. The plan was exactly what we were looking for and was executed very well. David was superb in giving our project his personal attention, and made sure that everything was done to our satisfaction. I recommend Richmond Rebuilders highly and will not hesitate to engage them again!

      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.
