Jorge quickly got in touch with me, did the work quickly and efficiently, and the deck, driveway and porch all look pristine now. The price was reasonable. I would recommend his work. BTW, knowing some Spanish would help, too.

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.

Gordy was exceptional! He removed a 150 foot long fence and hauled it away in less than a days work. His communication and professionalism were excellent and his price was fair. I also appreciate him telling us what he can and cannot do, I know I can call him for our next project and he'll only accept what he knows is in his skill set. I'm very grateful to have him in my corner. I'm abundantly grateful and you will love working with him.

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!

Excellent. Albert repaired and painted my porch he did more than what I expected, on time, reasonable and completed all big and little details needed. Albert very patient honest and clean. He is proud of his work, he noticed that wrong screws were used previously for the deck all were rusting. Voluntarily he decided to take them off and replaced with the correct ones and he didn't have to do that. I will hire him again and again. Thank you Albert

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.

Cliff was great to work with. We are a church with a limited budget, so Cliff worked with us to reduce costs by reusing some of the old materials. His estimate and final invoice were fair without surprises. Good quality work and materials. He started and completed the project (rebuilding ADA ramp, porch and handrails) in the time frame he agreed to. He kept the worksite clean and was courteous to our tenants which includes a pre school. The kids like Cliff. We will certainly use Cliff again. UCC Bethany Church, Beacon Hill Seattle

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.

Pete’s our first call when we need home improvements. We’ve hired Pete again and again to make improvements to our home. We’ve hired him to remodel our main bathroom, remodel our home office, shift interior doorways, install new picture windows, rebuild our front porch and stairs and a good portion of the west side of our home, build our patio arbor, execute an earthquake retrofit, install an attic floor, and replace exterior siding. He’s an industrious guy who gets things done and he’s a creative problem solver with a great personality. We think that if you hire him once, you will find that you will hire him again and again, just as we do. Give him a call!

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.
