Hands down one of the best contractors we have ever had the pleasure of working with. He assisted our family with a fireplace mantel and shelving project. Dunstan Forsythe was kind, patient, and professional throughout the whole process from start to finish. He was able to take our vision and turn it into a reality exceeding our expectations in every way. He possesses an incredible knowledge base and was able to provide assistance and advice to us as we made important decisions about our project. He was punctual for each meeting and was able to turn our project around in no time. Expert craftsmanship all around. The mantel and shelving that he built for us has completely transformed our living room and we couldn't be more grateful to have met such an amazing artist. I absolutely recommend Dunstan to anyone who is looking for the best of the best and will certainly be calling on his expertise for future projects.See more

We hired Felix and his team of Zenith Creations to give a completely fresh look to our whole house. We are very happy with an excellent job Felix and his team did for our house. We have a two story house with a full basement; on the second floor we have 4 bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and hallway with a closet; on the first floor we have formal living room, dining room, big kitchen area, family room, utility room, foyer, and a powder room. Here is a short description of our project: 1. Paint the ENTIRE inside of house – all the walls, all the ceilings, door frames, baseboards including all the closets and pantries. 2. Replace all the doors and bi-fold doors with a new hardware. 3. Replace carpet in all the 4 bedrooms, hallway, and staircase. 4. Remove paneling in the family room. 5. Replace carpet in the living room, dining room, and family room with a hardwood floor and custom stain it so that it would match with the previously installed and stained hardwood in the kitchen, foyer, and the powder room. 6. Replace all the electrical outlets with a new white color outlets and plates. 7. Caulking and grouting in the two upstairs bathrooms. 8. Replace exhaust fan in the hallway bathroom. 9. Paint outside shutters. 10.Seal cracks on the basement walls. I talked with 8 contractors over two months and selected Felix of Zenith Creations for the entire project. Felix provided a detailed line item based quote with a reasonable price. Felix was extremely helpful from beginning to the end. During the evaluation period he answered every question I asked in detail in writing; he came to our house 4-5 times to give us assurance and clarification; he prepared a wood sample with a custom stain to show me how it would look. Felix would send me links for materials and showed me the best and cheapest options for buying materials. Felix is honest and does not want to make extra money on materials that you need for your project. There was another challenge; my wife was in wheelchair. Felix had to plan the sequence of the project very thoroughly in detail. He planned first to complete the painting and replacing carpet upstairs, moved our bed and other necessities upstairs, completed all the work downstairs, and then moved us back downstairs. Felix and all the members of his team are very courteous, punctual, and hard working. They took care of our house as if it was their house; they took care of us as if we were their family members. Felix is highly skilled, very smart, intelligent, and experienced. There were several unexpected problems and he figured out solutions for each of them in a cost effective way. Felix and his team paid attention to details and did an exceptional quality job for our entire project. At the end they completely cleaned our house. I have recommended Felix to my friends and relatives. I would definitely hire him again. I recommend strongly that if you are considering any renovation for your house at least talk to Felix and get his input and quote for your project. What do you have to lose? Why not have an honest, professional, punctual, intelligent, and hardworking Zenith Creations team on your side?See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.
