Stephen did a great job hanging a new front door at our home. He was on-time, professional and very experienced in all areas of construction. We have since hired him for other finished carpentry work around our home and are beyond impressed. From the beginning, Stephen set out realistic timelines for the work and has followed through on everything and more. You won't be disappointed!

We could not be happier with Marvin and his work! We hired him for 3 projects: 1) Install bath fan - completed perfectly and with ease! 2) Complete assembly of a sit/stand desk - also completed perfectly and with ease. 3) The major project, fixing a wood rot problem at our front door threshold. We live in a Manufactured Home and they built it with a horrible design at the front door/bay window area. This took the skills of an artist, metal worker and carpenter. We cannot believe we found 1 person with all those skills! He had to design the whole thing and it was VERY complicated and unusual. We could not be happier with the result. No more water problems! We will be hiring Marvin for MANY more projects!

Bob is amazing!! I'm hesitant to review him because I want him to remain a hidden gem so we can have him all to ourselves! His workmanship is top notch - my husband has almost OCD levels of perfectionism, and Bob has him beat. If you hire Bob, you won't get shoddy work or work that doesn't quite look right; he takes the time to make sure everything is p.e.r.f.e.c.t. - He treats your house like it's his house. Also when weird little issues crop up (as they do in the middle of any construction job), Bob has the experience and the one random niche tool that will fix it straight away! Unlike many others you might hire who are a jack of all trades and master of none, Bob is a jack of all trades and a master of most. To top it all off his rates are extremely reasonable and he is very responsive. We will be using Bob for all of our house projects!!

My wife and I are very happy with the the very large deck job that Steve just completed. He finished the job in a timely fashion and always left the work site neat during construction. His carpentry ability is in a word is "superb!" Our job had some unanticipated intricacies that Steve took in stride and worked out a solution. We ended up with a beautiful deck that I am sure that we will enjoy for years to come. We found that Steve is also fair and a man of his word. We highly recommend anyone hiring him.

Art responded to my request for help with a leaky toilet. It had been installed improperly during the construction of my new house, and the construction plumbers had come back to fix it, but were incompetent! Art came out and at my request installed a flange extender kit which solved the problem of the original flange being installed too low. He was very professional and got the job done. He cleaned up after the project, and after the caulking dried, no leaks. I will ask Art to work on projects at my home as needed in the future. Thanks, Art!

Cedo was great to work with and did an excellent job tiling floors, building / tiling a custom shower and adding old bricks masonry onto an interior wall. He is extremely professional and goes to great lengths to make sure the work is as perfect as possible given the construction site conditions. My remodel turned out to be challenging because of the walls not being straight and the brick wall being very time consuming, but he was very gracious about any unforeseen obstacles and worked extremely hard to get the project finished. He was a very valuable thought partner each step of the way, and I ended up extending the original scope to include installing a backsplash, doors and trim. The end result looks spectacular and i would hire him again in a heartbeat!

We loved working with John on our remodel. He does great work, is very responsive and really takes pride in the finished result. As all construction projects do, we had a couple hiccups that John found creative solutions to, ensuring we were happy with the final result. And, we are! He brought my vision to life and even had a hand in the design process when building our kitchen (which has some funky angles).

LNB Construction installed a new shower stall in my basement bathroom. I received my proposal on the evening that I met with Jose and his business partner, Jose. They were able to get a crew out right away to replace my leaking shower stall. The job turned out great. I had a complicated situation due to a very un-level floor. There was some rot in the wall behind the existing shower and the drain also had to be moved. I thought Jose was fair on the change order for the unforeseen work. Due to the different shape of the shower, there was some of the concrete floor that showed. They took some vinyl flooring from under the dryer and patched the area in front of the shower. I am very happy with the way the whole project turned out. They were very neat and clean. Floors were all covered and protected with heavy paper. They also worked around the needs of my tenants who work nights and need to sleep in. I have them providing a quote for some other work I need done.

The team from Motso Construction was professional and courteous throughout our bathroom remodel. They did great work and our bathroom project looks awesome. Vlad was was very detailed and provided great communication from start to finish. We could not be at the house during the day and Vlad sent us pictures each step of the way, before and after work was completed so that we knew what was happening.

I would definitely recommend Brian and his team at Craftsman Construction. I now come home everyday to my dream Kitchen! I have worked with other contractors in the past and I have to admit- we were a little scared to undergo such a big project, but from our first meeting to the very end Brian made us feel very much at ease. The quality workmanship, professionalism, and time on the project was awesome. Brian was able to see our vision and make it into a reality. His experience was also a big help in directing us on ideas that would add to our homes resale value but also stay within our budget. Aside from their customer service, the quality and finish work once the project was complete blew me away. We couldn't be happier! Thank you Brian!!

We needed to hire an experienced and skilled carpenter to help us finish our bathroom remodel. Stefanie, a long time journeywoman carpenter, teamed up with our family to complete this project. She also repaired our bamboo floor and finished baseboards and molding installations. We are very happy with our new bathroom and trim work. We will definitely hire More Than A Hammer again.

I hired BDK to replace a portion of my fence and complete finish work in my new home. They were great communicators and worked with my schedule. My husband can be 'picky' and was pleased with the quality of work. I will be calling them for future work we need done. Thanks again for the hard work!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do construction project managers do?

Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

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.

How do I find out if a contractor is licensed?

It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront.

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 does a project manager charge per hour?

You may choose to hire a construction project manager for your residential or commercial project. For the hands-on homeowner who wants to be involved in home construction but isn’t comfortable hiring subcontractors, a construction project manager can oversee these relationships and supervise labor. Typically, construction project managers charge a fee that is a flat percentage of the total construction project cost. This may range from 10 percent to 15 percent, depending on the company and the services they provide. This means a $30,000 home remodel project would have a construction project management fee of $3,000-$4,500. Hiring a construction project manager generally precludes the markup on subcontractor labor charged by a general contractor. The drawback to this choice is that, unlike a general contractor, the construction project manager won’t be financially responsible for the work of the subcontractors. For larger projects, you may hire a construction project manager who will also hire a general contractor. This provides the benefits of the general contractor along with the management services of the project manager, who will be on board from the beginning. The construction project manager will be involved in the design phase and work with the architects and the building crew, facilitating a smoother overall process.
