I called and spoke to Brian, the contractor, on a Monday about a custom mailbox that I needed to be constructed on my house. He came out the next day and properly told me how much time he needed to find all the components and the custom paint in order to comply with the home owners association regulations. The job was done in less time than estimated, his craftsmanship was impressive and he was very diligent. The final cost of the mailbox was reasonable and cost effective compared to the rest of contractors in the area. I rate this contractor 5 stars. I will l hire them for future work and recommend him to my neighbors.

David & his team at JDM did a phenomenal job remodeling our bathroom on a budget. They gutted the original builders bathroom where there had been a leak in the shower behind the tile. They installed all new fixtures, including new vanity, new exhaust fan, new toilet, new sink/top, new vanity light, primed and color change the walls and ceiling. The tile work is FaNtAsTiC with custom niche in the shower. Their design suggestions regarding the tile, tile trim, and appointments helped us receive a much nicer bathroom than ANY of the other contractors we spoke to would have done for the budget... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Chris refinished a very old table and 6 chairs that belonged to my great grandmother. The finished table was stunning and I was amazed. He made it easy by picking up and delivering the furniture. It was a positive experience. I would recommend Tilley Woodworking.

Matt did a great job on building a custom pergola with very short notice. He was easy to work with, and I’ve already received several compliments from people about how nice it looks. Would recommend him, and would use his services again.

Really appreciated all the work done at my house last month by Steamatic/GTC. We had exterior painting done that needed to be finished since its been about 3 years. Lots if scraping and holes filled due to woodpeckers and snow damage. House looks great now. We picked out custom paint to accent the stonework up front which was included in the price. Bo negotiated a good price we could afford and it took about 2 weeks for the guys to finish. Although it was raining some of the days they still came out and did what they could and covered up any parts that could be damaged by rain. Nice job-

I needed a clean up with landscaping for a move out. Quite a bit of work was required including laying of mulch. Price was extremely fair and job done was excellent. I would hire TNT again.

Trent and Jacob are amazing!! They do great work for a great value. I ended up having them do more than I expected. They are all around great handymen/carpenters. They pretty much did it all from tile on the kitchen floor to drywall to a new door frame and a roof! Love these guys. I am having them come back to do the rest of my house when I am ready. Highly recommend!

Over the years I've had Brad do a number of jobs, ranging from antique restoration to building custom pieces with beautiful inlay and special features; a music cabinet, bookshelves and a jewelry box. He is a fine artist and craftsman. Jude F.

I was very impressed with this company! I had different work done on both my homes over the last couple years. The first home had damage from a hail storm and I was required to get 3 estimates. I contacted Buckshot for an estimate and they came out that day. They were so helpful in working with my insurance company and getting several things covered that the inspector initially missed. They are very knowledgeable about claims and working with insurance. The insurance company took a while to settle the claim but my rep kept me updated on everything. They completed the roof and did some siding work, which turned out great!! On my second home I had some missing siding. They came out right away and were able to match the siding color even though the home is 13 years old. They took extra time to go through several sample colors and work with me on making sure I was satisfied with everything. The work was done right away and looks amazing! I would never use another company to do any exterior work on my home!!

I have heard 'bounce is code'. Which means a floor may feel solid and be built to code but still moves as it is walked on. I have been in several of ABC's custom built homes and NEVER felt the floors flex. Even after they are 20 years old. It is great to know a well built home can be purchased from the guy who actually built it.

Ed and his team did an amazing job building out our cement basement into a completely finished area including large bedroom, bath, family room and kitchenette area! Their bid and actual figures for the 1200 sq ft build-out were spot on and they exceed their own timeline, start to finish in 29 days! Ed is a very trustworthy person and he was on site almost every day which was great to see, and if he wasn't on site then we communicated by phone. You don't see or hear about experiences like this too often these days but for new Wisconsinites like our family from the west coast we couldn't have picked a better person, leader, and contractor to work with! I have recommended and referred Ed and his team to several of my neighbors as well as co-workers which says a lot. He's upfront, honest and will tell you whether or not something is possible to accommodate which is exactly what I expected, of which he delivered. All said and done, an awesome job was completed in a timely manner with cost almost to a tee. How can you go wrong in a situation like this? The answer is that you can't. Thank you and your team, Ed, for a GREAT job! Justin and family

        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.
