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 am writing to highly recommend the services of carpenter Boris Reynolds, who built from the scratch very complicated book cases with build in computer desk. The unit was designed by my wife and Boris showed the full understanding of the project blueprint. During the project he demonstrated the real attention to the details, gave us suggestions and valuable recommendations that we accepted. Boris made all unit in his shop, updated me almost every day with project pictures and did not hesitate to come several times to my place (160 miles one way). Boris was punctual, polite to me and my wife and cleaned up the working area at the end of every day, We are very satisfied with the quality of the work Boris performed and highly recommend him for any carpentry project because I am confident he will bring the same professional and personal skills to future homeowner's project.

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!

GBT Construction Mr. Mark Allen is the owner of this company. The wife and I decided to expand our deck. I called and asked Mark to come for a estimate of the project. He arrived when he said he would on time and looked the situation over. Much to my surprise after inspection of the old smaller deck he noticed that it was unsafe and should be reinforced for safety (and Code compliance),for expansion because it was shaky. I was pleased with his knowledge and appreciated him bringing this to my attention. My wife and I accepted his advice to demolish down to the frame and awarded him the job. He and a helper arrived on time to start the deconstruction of my old deck and the project was under way. His worker, Tim did an excellent job of bringing the deck down to the frame which he had said was reusable. The following day A carpenter, Ken showed up and started the construction. When they returned the they continued and finished the deck. I am glad We hired Mark for the job. Ken and Tim worked steady to repair and extended our new deck to our satisfaction. I complement thrse two. It looks great, very sturdy and a nice addition to our home. I must say Mark's price was very reasonable, his coordinating coordinating with me both on yhe phone and in person, dropping by now and again to spend time with his men was admirable. That shows me a good repore with his employes and also cares for the progress of his commitment to his customers. We thank all involved for such a great job and I highly recommend Mark's company to all, and I will call him when I need a contractor in the future. Thanks Mark, Ken and Tim.

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.
