From the first time I called Dave to get an estimate on doing this project to his call checking up on the handrail he installed on the outside steps, this was a great project. My 97 year old mother lives with my family and I needed a second set of handrails installed on the right side of the staircase as well as around the newell post of the staircase so my mother has something to hold onto when getting up the stairs. We already had handrails on the left side of each flight of stairs that we had installed awhile ago but they were not the right type of railing and had proved to be unstable. When i called Dave for an estimate he was on vacation but asked if he could call me back when he got home. He did exactly that, came for an estimate as scheduled, and knew exactly what I wanted done. We agreed on the cost and he committed to coming back and doing the work the following Monday. He arrived as promised but due to a stomach virus he had gotten from his grandson, he asked if it was okay that he started work the following day. He arrived the next day promptly at 8:00 and worked steady until finished with installing the handrails. They look great, even unfinished and best yet, they make it much easier for my mother to get up and down the stairs! Dave came back a few days later and installed the railing on the outside stairs and nailed down all the treads on our interior stairs. He generally does not do exterior work but he agreed to install the railing so it was easier for my mother to get up and down the front stairs. It looks great and it is wonderful to have for my mother's use and safety Dave is great to work with, professional in his dealings with us, prompt and timely in his communications,scheduling, and arriving to work. He is extremely attentive to all the details homeowners look for in a good contractor such as quality, cleanliness and fairness. Dave is an excellent carpenter and craftsman. We appreciated that he regularly checked with us throughout the project to ensure we were satisfied with what he was planning on doing. Both my husband and I enjoyed working with Dave and wouldn't hesitate to have him into our home to complete another carpentry project.
