We hired John to install a dog door. He did a great job, was very nice, cleaned up before he left, and we paid exactly what he had quoted us in the beginning. My partner and I are very happy with his work, and have already hired him to do other things around the house.

I highly recommend BabaBrown. Joseph does quality work with attention to detail. I hired him to widen a door with a pocket, which was not possible. His recommendation of a sliding style door was spot on. The end result was stunning. I consequently hired him to install bamboo flooring in the master bedroom, closet and hallway, and paint the rooms. He also removed carpet from the staircase, finished the steps and installed a runner. All of these tasks were done in a timely, professional manner. If you own a home, you'll need BabaBrown.

Julio Guevara and his team did an outstanding job removing the stain on my concrete pad and steps. He showed up when he said he would, cleaned up the area very well when he finished, and was very professional throughout the whole process. The stain was caused by a wood stainer/sealer which had soaked up very well into the porous concrete. He was able to remove most of it without requiring major repairs and did it within 4 hours. The team even removed smaller stains that had been left behind by the neighboor's dog throughout the sidewalk!

I had Davis come work on turning our stairs into drawers with plans we found online. He was more than willing to figure out exactly what we wanted as far as function, look and sturdiness (a kid, dog and husband) that would last with the abuse they would see. He did such wonderful work that I had him build us a custom wine cabinet and custom island (pull out dog food bin, push out dog food server, plate racks, cubby for built in microwave, etc.) for our kitchen we were also remodeling. He does wonderful work that is really top notch, I will be keeping him around for all the projects we will have in the future.

The job was to install wainscoting and crown molding. Mike came to the house to measure and discuss the project. After talking about my initial thoughts on the project, Mike discussed with me some obstacles with the way I wanted the wainscoting. He put a lot of thought into the job and helped me come up with a solution that I liked much better. He is very professional, thorough, detail-oriented and extremely communicative. His team is wonderful and very talented. I trusted their judgement when it came to aesthetic decisions, it is clear they are experienced and care about the craftsmanship. I would recommend Mike and his team to anyone!

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.
