I called Mike because our house only had one gutter above the porch. He came out within a couple of days and gave me a bid for not only the entire house but the garage as well. We booked him within a couple of days and had our brand new gutters hung within a week. Mike was fast and friendly. He walked me through the process and made suggestions when needed. He performed the work quickly and our new gutters are kickin like a chicken!

I wasn't home but everything looked good. I just wish they took the gutter clean out with them or put them the trash rather than leave a bag by front porch. Not a big deal though.

Very pleased with Steve's ability to rebuild and restore the front porch of our home built in the 1920s. He used quality materials and craftsmanship to recreate the look that we wanted on the front of our house. We would definitely hire Steve again.

Gafco did a great job on my roof. They gave a competitive quote and had the roof done within a week of my first call and had the job completed in one day. They cleaned up afterwords.

Excellent. Albert repaired and painted my porch he did more than what I expected, on time, reasonable and completed all big and little details needed. Albert very patient honest and clean. He is proud of his work, he noticed that wrong screws were used previously for the deck all were rusting. Voluntarily he decided to take them off and replaced with the correct ones and he didn't have to do that. I will hire him again and again. Thank you Albert

The stairs leading to our second story porch were swaying when we walked on them and needed other repairs, so we hired Kenny to do the work. He gave a very reasonable bid and started the work right away. He fixed our stairs and added supports, so now they are very sturdy and safe! He also fixed the rain gutter on our front porch, so water will travel down the pipe and not over the side of the house! We are very happy with his work, professionalism and attention to detail.

JW builders did a great job with my backyard porch. Removed the old rotted wood and left the cross beams (not rotted) still intact. Josh also added on to my deck for a hot tub

We are very happy with the work Mr. Smith did on our house. We hired him for two projects: a closed in porch and a walk-in stone tile shower. Both projects were completed on time and with good results. The shower is very beautiful. Family and friends that come to visit say its gorgeous and they love taking a shower in it. Mr. Smith does excellent work and is a very friendly and professional contractor. We would definitely recommend him. Charity

John was an absolute pleasure to work with. While it took some time to wait for him to get to my project, it was worth the wait! I explained the ideas I had for remodeling my front porch, siding and gable. John and his assistant, Mike, went above and beyond my expectations to turn my dreams into reality. They took a keen interest in guiding me to understand what my ideas would look like and suggesting better alternatives on many occasions. They worked my remodel as they would have on their own homes. The one thing John could have done better was provide me with quotes that included taxes. This caused a wrinkle at the end of the project. Despite this, I would highly recommend him.

There's more work out there than people to do it, and Gary and his crew are scrambling. It's not how things all go right (never happens), it's how you deal with the inevitable "hidden bummers" (supplier gives you 15 instead of the 25 items you ordered, you guess wrong what's under the roof you can't see until you get it off, etc..) that determines the outcome. This is a 45 year old house, several owners before me, and numerous repairs and additions (including mine over the 30 years I've owned it), so there were a few surprises. I liked Gary when he first came out - hit it off well, and his was the lowest bid. What was a 4-5 day estimate took 4 1/2, including a crew-split in the middle to do some emergency work near by. In the end it looks better than I expected, the 50-ft long porch I built was ripped up and re-raftered to code, clean up was thorough at the end of every day and at completion. I've done some construction work in my day, and being retired, I was there through it all - the job was done right, and by the deadline we were under. I'm pleased with the results, the quality of materials, and working with his crew under pressure. Since Gary was taking pictures at the end, I think he was too. They take pride in their work. I've got a snaky addition and reroof on the garage scheduled next spring, and once I finish the "blueprints" so I can submit for a permit I'll be calling Gary for a bid.

We contracted with Devon to prepare our house to be listed for sale in an aggressive time line, and he did an outstanding job. We could not be happier with the results. He listened to what we wanted, offered advice on how to save time and costs without sacrificing quality, and did whatever it took to get the job done on time. With the help of one or two other guys, Devon was able to remodel two bathrooms, retile the entryway, rebuild part of our porch, install carpet, paint many rooms and the garage, and many many other little things. The amount he accomplished in a short time frame is simply amazing. My only regret is that we didn't find Devon four years ago when we started this remodel project! Devon has my complete confidence and I recommend him to anybody looking for a quality handyman who can tackle just about any project.

Chris was great. Came out fast for the estimate and got to our project the next week. He was very nice to work with and I feel he did a great job on our porch cover. I would recommend him and would use him again for another project.

I highly recommend Pete for your construction projects. I have hired him three times now, and have been impressed with his results each time. First project was a remodel of my master bedroom. Had a column in the middle of the room and the outer half of the room featured an old hot tub that hadn't worked in years. He was able to restructure the ceiling joist so that the column would be eliminated and it literally doubled the size of the room. In addition, he added an additional closet which he was able to match perfectly to the existing one! Additional indirect lighting was needed to complete the project and he accomplished it beautifully! I'm sooo proud of this room. It's quite beautiful! The second project was to provide a handrail to my front porch. He designed and installed a beautiful system that was not only the handrail but a guardrail that went up to the side of the house. He incorporated the design so nicely, it looks like it was always part of the house. He integrated it into the original design of the house and was masterful with the design. The third project was to re-roof my house in November. Despite weather conditions, he was able to do a great job - within budget and ahead of his projected deadline. He's such a conscientious and hard worker - I'm so glad I found him! He has a good eye for design, is very reasonably priced, and has an incredible work ethic. What more could one ask for? I will continue to use his services, and I recommend him highly to you too. You will be glad you hired him - I sure was!

Doug has done 2 jobs for us. Last year he built a beautiful, craftsman style front porch roof for us. It is exactly what I described. About 2 weeks ago he painted our interior, did a great professional job. Honest, neat & a hard worker.

Bryan built our chain link fence a couple years ago, turned out beautiful...just what we wanted. He also built from his own plan a awesome chicken coop for me. The "girls" love it! He later did a porch roof and some indoor remodeling for us and our neighbors, some wrought iron. He was always on time and professional, finishing in a timely manner. I'll be hiring him again when I find more that needs doing!

Dave is a very hard worker. We are very pleased with his skills. Shows up on time doesn't leave until the job is finished. Ability to work on a number of different projects. Excellent painting skills. He also rebuilt our deck and refinished our front porch. He regularly works in our yard and does a great job. Pay attention to details and follows instructions well. Able to work on his own or with others. Trustworthy and reliable.

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.
