Nolan came to our house and mounted our 46 inch tv to the wall over our fireplace. As he was installing the wall mount, he explained every step he was doing so we would understand. His work performance was excellent and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking his services.

Stephen's work of installing a heavy wood door with custom trim and ironwork into a old home was fantastic. He was friendly, asked for my preferences as he worked, and did a great job.

Serghei did an amazing job installing a drop rod on my fence, into my stone pavers. He even went the extra mile to ensure the fence gate was more secure and level. Quick response and very precise work. The fence is so straight and secure now - the last windstorm really beat it up, so I’m very happy it will be able to stand through the next windstorm. :)

Gary is a great guy. He is very knowledgeable and has a great attitude and work ethic. He has the ability to change things up if needed or desired as the work progresses to make sure the customer is getting exactly what they want. Gary built a large deck with a partial roof and exposed trellis with benches and privacy walls for us. He made quick work of it and it looks great. We would recommend Hartloff Property Restoration for your next project. Jeff and Toni Bradshaw

We have used several Pro.com contractors as we prepare our home for sale. Triple Power addressed some dry-rot in cedar siding and an interior closet floor and subfloor. They were professional and the finish in both cases exceeded our expectations.

Mejia’s pulled my chips out of the fire. I had originally planned to partially rebuild my deck myself with the help of my brother. Then I decided to replace the whole thing and it soon became obvious that we were way out of our league. Several days before a truck was scheduled to drop off a huge load of prefinnished clear cedar decking, and with no deck structure in sight, in just the nick of time I learned about Thumbtack and posted the project. Mejia responded immediately and came to work the very next day! Not only did they come exactly on time as agreed, but they came completely skilled, chalked full of energy and with a kick ass work ethic to match. They ‘nailed’ it literally and figuratively. I couldn’t have been happier, and they accomplished it all for a fair price. They deserve more than five stars on all counts and yes, these guys come highly recommended.

Hired Ricardo and RCC to install an Irrigation system and a Paver Patio. The team was professional and punctual. Ricardo kept to the timeline for completion and was on budget. I couldn't be happier with the work and end result. I would most definitely hire Ricardo and his team again for my future projects. Highly recommend him to friends and family for his quality of work and professionalism.

We had Erik rebuild our deck and front porch. After having issues with previous contractors, Erik and his crew were a breath of fresh air. We enjoyed working with everyone, Paco and Mike were always on time and a pleasure to be around. Erik was always on site to ensure things were running smoothly. We appreciate the quick communication and timely manner in which everything was done. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we would recommend Gafco to everyone!

Kellie is a treasure. I first hired him for an interior paint job [which was outstanding] and as we became acquainted - he's a very friendly, engaging man - further discovered his talent as both handyman and craftsperson, who's since assembled furniture for me & created a temporary, yet very attractive bay window treatment out of canvas drop cloths, which I'll likely have made into pleated curtains to compliment the dark wood mini blinds I'm waiting to arrive and will have him install. Lastly, we also discussed an idea for him to craft a trapezoid shaped bay window seating area with drawers for storage, topped with a thick pad & throw pillows. I would highly recommend him, for not only is he capable, his pricing is more than fair.

Michael and Ryan did an amazing job on our back yard, building an amazing deck on an uneven yard. They took their time building the deck the correct way instead of rushing through to meet the timeline and move on to their next project. We knew they were busy yet they took time working diligently and creating a space exactly the way we wanted. We are one happy customer and would hire them again for other projects.

My husband and I couldn't have imagined how wonderful the job TJ and Marvin did for us!! We hired them to - pretty much gut our backyard and deck - remodeling everything for us. They treated or job as if it was their own home. It was so much more than what we hoped for. I would - in a heartbeat - recommend them to anyone. The beautiful work they did for us will be enjoyed for years to come. They leveled our backyard, planted new sod, installed all new fencing, built patio with a fire pit. They tore down and built a new, enlarged deck that wraps around the side of our house. They took out our bedroom window and installed sliding doors to the new deck which looks out onto a beautiful wetland. They installed a new ceiling fan. When we moved into our house 5 years ago, our furnace was in one of our bathrooms. Due to the design of the bathroom, there was no way to cover the opening to the furnace - leaving it an eye sore. They took our the door to the bathroom and installed a smaller door - leaving them room to install a beautiful - barn door style door - closing the opening to the furnace. In the future, any remodeling to our home will be easy, all we'll do is call TJ and Marvin!! If I could, I'd give them 6 plus stars!!

Zackary is amazing. He is responsive, patient, professional, kind, quick and extremely knowledgeable. We referred him to friends, and plan on using him again soon. Better than 5 stars. The work is great. He repaired a large arbor for us over our porch. Thanks, Zack!

David did excellent work doing a custom metal rail for my deck as well as a side gate. David works fast (the slower part is the powder coating). Be very specific, give pictures, and measure everything! Very happy. Now I just need to get my boards put in the empty rails.

We had a large job that included taking out many plants and small trees, moving several plants, adding a great deal of "good" soil, constructing raised beds, an arbor, a large paver patio, walkways, gravel, lighting, bringing in a variety of new treees and bushes. All done with very limited access. The bid was fair, the quality was excellent; Gil and his sons and Eduardo were a joy to work with. They followed our initial plans, but were willing to give suggestions for improvements. We agreed with almost all, and the few we didn't agree with Gil accepted with grace. The job took nearly four weeks, they were always on time and kept us informed throughout the process of what would happen next. I would highly recommend them. Every day I look at my new backyard and absolutely LOVE it. Thanks Gil for a great exerience.

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.
