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.

Jarrod did a wonderful job mounting our TV over the fireplace and framed up the niche perfectly. He was very thorough and efficient in his job. Would definitely recommend him.

Ernesto and his team completed a cedar wood fence for our backyard recently (see pics). He offered a fair price for the project and worked hard with his team of 2 to get everything completed on time. The best part of the service is that he listens to the customer and provides service based on request.. Quality of work and materials provided is top notch. Moreover, his crew did some minor works like cleaning the roof of pine needles at no additional cost. Would highly recommend!

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.

These guys are great. Very professional and they do outstanding work. They painted my cabinets and did a beautiful job. They are also very conscientious of protecting your home to prevent paint from getting on other surfaces. I will definitely hire them again.

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!!

Cliff Taylor from Taylor Made Construction has done numberous jobs on the house I own with my sister. It started with a new roof and gutters,and has continued thru additional jobs including the remodel of the downstairs into a separate apartment, which included adding a full kitchen, dining room, extra bedroom and closet space. He fixed the water leakage problem we had in the basement by adding a new drainfield in our yard along the side of the house, which he later covered with a new sidewalk. It's so nice to walk from the back of the house to the front without walking thru the wet grass. He enclosed and finished our back porch with screen doors so we no longer get all the dirt and leaves blowing in from all directions and added fans to keep it cool in the summer. On top of that he added a new deck off the porch all enclosed by a fence. We now have a very nice private deck for the bbq, set up with chairs for watching the sunset. He also helped us with security by putting up motion sensor lights and cameras all along our property. I am so amazed by all his work. Top of the line, done quickly and efficiently. When he worked on our roof, there was never any nails or garbage left around the house, he always worked without interupting us and was very concise and clear about the cost and time needed to complete the job. The downstairs was turned from a single bedroom, living space and unfinished basement into a complete apartment. We now have a full kitchen, two bedroom, one bath rentable living space which adds a ton of value to our house. And the best part about all the work is that is looks like it was always that way. You can't tell a remodel even happened. He even fixed our hot tub!! I would highly recommend Cliff Taylor for any job, large or small. I have already recommended him to my family and he has done great work for them as well.

JW Builders provided a prompt response and was able to come out to give me a quote the same day I posted on Thumbtack. Then when I called to schedule the work, Josh and his crew came out and removed the old fencing and posts, and even finished the new fence installation the same day! The fence looks great, and I have had several compliments from my neighbors and friends. It also contains my dogs, which is what I wanted. I would recommend JW Builders, straightforward, affordable, and quality work. Thanks!!

A+++ Levi (the bearded face of Left Coast), Jason and Bryan are what quality is all about. From install of new 14x14 aggregate concrete pad to final assembly of the wood gazebo, wonderful work. I'm going to turn to these guys on future projects, and when they get so busy because their reputation spreads, I'll wait the time necessary for them to return.

Brian and his partner Michael did an excellent job for our patio cover. We are loving our patio so much. The cover provides shed and allow full sunlight as well as the roof is made of transparent polycorbonated plastic. We like the roof design a lot. It looks awesome when we look up. Brian did a good job in all professional way from bid to finish the work. I recommend Crafts Construction for any kind of quality home improvement projects.

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.

Great workmanship and skills in installing crown moldings in my livingroom, den, hallway, and my 3 bathrooms. They also designed and installed moldings around two interior entryways; greatly improved the architectural visual impact and aesthetics. These guys did whatever it took to make us happy. Thank you for the great customer service! Fred

Paul and his team was able to fix the corner-structure on my home caused by a truck impact, which is a huge relief. The front of the house now has natural stone fascia and sills adding more curb appeal and nosey slow drivers (opposite of normal). The inside of the damaged room needed flooring replaced and drywall repaired/replaced along with external vinyl siding salvage and transfer. The project really came together and looks great. The stone work and repairs Paul's team did is very appreciated and I recommend with high confidence for future projects. Thanks Paul & Co I look forward to the future projects with Pro-Custom Contracting when timing is right. Thanks again!

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.
