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.

GAFCO. why have I not used you before. My Bad! House trim was showing some rot and the paint job, that another company did 2 years ago was wearing fast. GAFCO fixed everything. They were so professional and made our needs top priority. 1 week and done. I am truly amazed every time I come home. It's like a new home. Thank you GAFCO really made our Christmas bright! Once you have found GAFCO your done! Don't worry about it.

I have a rental home in Seattle, but I live out of town, so I really needed a reliable handyman that I could trust. I had The Handyman Seattle come by and fix my broken floodlights. Juan Soto was very friendly and straight forward. He came across as a guy you could trust and not some salesman trying to make a buck. He fixed the light for a fair price and gave me a good quote to fix my porch metal roof. I will definitely use him again.

My wife and I hired Jim and his crew at Emerald City Construction Services to replace our Porch/Deck. He came August 20 to look and gave estimate.We are waiting for another Company to come and look at it and give estimate.The company did not show up.I called Jim on friday August 22 that he got the project. He said he will call me when he is not busy to give a real estimate. The next day,We got the estimate via E-mail which we approved. August 25, he send a one man wrecking crew for the deck. He did the dismantling by himself, very carefully not to break the newly installed glass window on the den. We appreciated that very much. Also, another crew delivered the materials that will be used for the deck. The next day, they started building our new deck. The job was in Renton and Emerald City Construction is from Edmonds. That was a long commute. We appreciated the work they did on my porch. The cemented part of our porch is sinking. They raised it up about 3 inches to level it with the front door. That was beyond of what they did. The work was done and finished in a couple of days. Also, they did a very good job cleaning and removing the debris. They did a very good job building our DECK and PORCH.They are real professional of what they do. We are very satisfied with the OUTCOME. Thank you very much JIM and EMERALD CITY CONSTRUCTION SERVICES. Roger and Alma Manuel

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
