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!

Tech Construction recently remodeled our kitchen and we are so happy that we chose to work with this excellent team and group of contractors. They were a pleasure to have in our home, very neat, paid attention to detail and communicated well throughout every step of the remodel. The remodel was quick, too, and seamless for each component of the cabinets, plumbing, electrical and appliance installation. We've worked with many firms over the years and Tech Construction LLC far exceeds the quality of work, level of professionalism and skills of each carpenter. It was such a wonderful experience. They also sound proofed our ceilngs in the kitchen and breakfast room. They had the experience and expertise to know these advanced skills and truly got it right. Thank you, GIovanni, Benny and Ricardo. We miss you already, but see your smiles and dedication in our kitchen daily.

We simply cannot emphasize enough what a pleasure it has been working with Negassi. As a Master Carpenter, not only is he a wizard with all things wood, he is creative and has tremendous problem solving skills - something that was absolutely critical in the massive remodel and build-out of our 90-year old home! We have found Negassi to be completely customer-focused and professional at all times. His work quality, honesty, and reliability are unquestioned and uncompromised. Out of the dozens of difference trades-people we had working on our home, Negassi stands out as a shining example to others.

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.

David provided excellent service and craftsmanship in the delivery of our Media Room/Closet remodel. From the custom ladder to the closet loft, to the custom built banquette/window seat, David delivered a quality product. A solid finish carpenter, he installed a pocket door with hardware and all of the trim. He helped me with all of the low-voltage speaker wiring, installed all of the speaker brackets and worked with the electrician to coordinate his work.

I have had the pleasure of hiring Irish Red Construction for several different projects. I found Geof to be both friendly and professional. His work was always done at the highest level. When appropriate he offered alternative methods or ideas to maximize the budget or to add a more creative flair. I highly recommend Red Irish for any project. You won’t regret it.

I had some 'qualified handyman' start a bathroom/ kitchen remodel at my home, and was left with an inoperable bathroom and a faulty kitchen . Frank Madden came highly recommended from a neighbor that had used his services to replace their floors expertly, and he stepped in and turned my nightmare remodel into a pleasant experience. His work was of the highest quality and his rates were almost a steal for the workmanship I recieved. Any projects I have in the future, Frank will be the one I call.

Very Professional and knowledgeable, the same with his fellow carpenter. Employed on a time and material basis. He gave me a timeline to coinside with our needs for completion. Thus far all is well, but I think the hourly wage is a little high. Once finished I will see if it fits my budget of $4500.

I have hired Rex to do a few different repairs around my home, he has always done a great job. He does things RIGHT, and he does them right the first time! He is also very honest and very fair about how much he charges for the work he does. If you need some kind of repair/remodel work done around your home and you want it to get done right and not have to worry about it for another 10 or 20 years, Rex is the guy to call. If it seems like he takes a bit longer than other people you have hired to do similar work, just be patient. Have a look at the job he has done when he is finished. You will see a difference between him and those "other guys." His attention to detail, knowledge, and his willingness to go the extra mile even if it cuts into his bottom line to do so make Rex a rare gem of a carpenter and handyman. For those who want it done quick and cheap, keep looking. For those who want superior workmanship for very fair prices and understand that measuring twice so as to only cut once and waste nothing takes a bit more time but ultimately yields excellent results, Rex is your guy. Personally, I would never call anyone else as long as Rex is willing to take the job.

Ed was fantastic - skilled at all aspects of carpentry from framing to finish work. I also found him to be reliable, honest, and on schedule. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a carpenter or small general contractor and plan on using him again.

    We have an old house. More than 100 years old kind of a house. 10 years we have struggled to get jobs done or things fixed with highly recommended plumbers, electricians, and carpenters. Then we met Christine. She gets the job done. She fixed our boiler furnace. Three different companies we have had come in and try to get it fixed. She fixed it in a day. And it has never worked this good. All the others told us to get a new system. Sometimes the old is still good and just needs GREAT expertise to get it fixed. She is a master electrician. And her attention to detail is out standing. She gets the work done. And FAST. We owe our house to her. We now come home to a warm house with lights and heat. You won't regret having her expertise with a new project, fix it job, or complete gut and rebuild. She did our kitchen. Our lives have been tranformed.

    Scott at LS Carpentry worked on a tricky project on our houseboat, putting in an over-sized window and building a number of cabinets. He is an incredibly skilled carpenter who works independently to provide an absolutely excellent product. He is smart, fair, and honest. He comes with my highest recommendation.

    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 you tip cabinet installers?

    In general, home service providers such as electricians, plumbers and contractors are professionals who don’t expect tips. They expect to do a job for you for the specific price they quoted. Of course, they may appreciate a tip for a job particularly well done or for which they’ve gone beyond what’s normally expected, such as completing the project early or under budget. Even better than a tip, it’s always appropriate to leave a positive review online after a good experience.

    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 is custom cabinetry?

    Custom cabinets can be built for any room, including bedroom closets and built-in armoires. Measured carefully and built precisely, custom cabinetry can increase storage and beautify any room. The national average for building custom cabinets ranges from $500 to $1,200 per linear foot. The cost is highly variable because there are so many styles, colors, glazes and other options. In general, the linear footage of the cabinets, the materials used to build them, and the cost of the labor will determine the cost. Solid wood costs more than plywood and wood veneer, and costs vary among different types of wood; maple and cherry cabinets are more expensive than pine. Glass-front cabinets can cost more, as can decorative hinges, handles and door pulls, which can cost $2-$45 each; choose carefully to stay within your budget and pull off the exact look you’re going for. Some carpenters also charge for installation, on average $100 per cabinet box. Additional molding and trim, such as crown molding at the ceiling, cost an average of $70 per 8-foot section, and adding finished ends to exposed cabinets averages $100-$200.

    How much does it cost to have kitchen cabinets installed?

    In any kitchen, the cabinets are the main focus, so you want to make sure new or replacement cabinets are installed correctly. A professional carpenter can properly, securely mount new cabinets to the wall; the national average cost for this service is $7,725, although the cost varies widely depending on the type of cabinets, their material and their size, and the accessories you add. A typical fee is $70 per linear foot to remove existing cabinets and assemble and install new ones; the cost is less if you do the demolition and removal yourself. Stock cabinets are the least expensive to have installed, ranging from $75 to $400 each; semi-custom cabinets range from $150 to $900 each; and custom cabinets cost from $500 to $1,400 each. Wood cabinets are more expensive than those made from plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and finished with a laminate. Wood cabinets range in cost from $80 to $160 per linear foot. Laminate-finished cabinets cost $35 to $75 per linear foot, on average.
