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!

We were looking for a carpenter do do a fix up for our 2 bathrooms thinking we just needed a little wall job. When he looked behind walls he had to remove 3 tile walls they were full of rotted wood full of ants. In back bathroom he took the floor up and installed wood tile flooring and replaced wall. In big bathroom he re hung new tile complete with shampoo holder with special waterproofing the boards beneath. He did an excellent job and very quickly. I would recommend him to all my family and friends. He is Cuban so he has a cute accent and great personality he will be welcome in our home forever.

Ramey has done a few jobs for me and has done great work each time. The first he put new trim in my master bedroom/bath, and also in my daughter's room. The work was perfect with great attention to detail. This past summer Ramey built a paver patio off of my deck surrounded by bench seating. He also build steps leading from the deck down to the patio for easy access. We use this new area often when the weather permits and frequently have friends and family over and the extra patio space was a great addition. I will definitely be having more work done by Alpha & Omega and would highly recommend to anyone who needs a general contractor!

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 had I.B.S. Builders come out to my house in Fife to do some demo work on my old shiplap siding and install windows and also water seal the outside of my home to prep for siders to come. They did a outstanding job, there bid was lower than the 5 other bids I had gotten and the work was done within a two days, and it was a lot of work. They also did cleaned up better than I've ever had. Overall 5 stars, I was very pleased with the results. Clean work guys!

    Nate is very contientious, on time, and tidies up at the end of the day. Professional in every aspect! Communication, billing, and on-sight presence were superior. He got the work done on our agreed to schedule. While he and his crew were painting the entire two and a half story older home, Nate listened to what I said, and either gave a sound reason for the way things were done, or went right to work to make it right. I would hire him again, and recommend him to the highest degree. Next time I will call him for my repair work and painting. He started working as a guy I hired to paint the house and at the end we shook hands like friends.

    They very efficiently replaced our roof, including much of the plywood. They were very professional and completed the job in a timely manner. Everything was cleaned up and looked fantastic. We have had numerous complements on how nice the roof looks.

    Geof has come to my rescue a few times after purchasing my fixer upper in the Eastside. He never hesitated and knew all the needed resources to get the job done. When I finally got to the point of a fun project, I called on Geof again to build and install a barn door between the dining area and kitchen. Being a 1937 home and things have certainly settled, Geof made it work! I have attached a pic for reference. Geof is truly a master carpenter! I would trust him with any project even if you're not quite sure what you want - he has great vision and the ability to provide many ideas to choose from! Can't go wrong hiring this company!

    About

    The mindset that I have, "if this were my home what would I want", makes my approach different. I pay attention to details, am thorough, honest, courteous and clean up after myself so the home owner doesn't have to. Seeing in the customer's eyes and hearing the exclamations of delight is the best part of my job.

    About

    I got my carpentry start as a shipwright apprentice at an all wood construction boatyard, and I like to bring that knowledge and those fine skills together with a knowhow and understanding of modern residential building techniques I love making custom millwork, or designing a creative way to use space. Custom cabinets and trim are my favorite types of projects, but I can do it all, from framing to finish!

    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.

    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.

    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.
