We love the new built-ins. Craftsmanship is quite good and the installation team was a pleasure to work with. However it took much longer than original expectations. Bret did the original visit and proposal in August. Offered nice design suggestions. Contract signed / deposit Sep 8. Expectation set as 8 weeks to complete. Actual completion Jan 15. Firm did not communicate progress when the origina...

I used Bret's carpentry for install of crown moldings on my main floor and it went very well. Then, last year they came out to look at my basement and provide me with quotes for stairway remodeling, custom bar installation and more. I did let them know that it would be several months before I was ready to move forward- other items needed to be completed first. January 16th I advised them I was rea...

Bret stopped in to review our project. We wanted a mantel installed. He was prompt and friendly during the initial meeting. However, he promised us a quote which we never received and he has not responded to our messages or voicemails.

Initial contact was responsive and prompt. FREE estimate was offered after work was reviewed and measured. Follow-up, detailed estimate was sent via email. This was considered a very fair price for the work to be done. Contact was later made by the craftsman who would be performing the work. An agreed upon time and date was established within one week of contact. Craftsman showed up as promised re...

Thank you (Member name removed) for your wonderful review! We're very happy that you're pleased with our work!


Excellent craftmanship. A little high on the price to paint it, so we painted it ourselves

We did not end up using him because we did not do the project but he was really good. I got the quote pretty much the day after I contacted him so he was on time. It was a lot of work that he was going to do and he was very professional. He provided me with a lot of great ideas. I would definitely recommend him to other members. He was less expensive than the other companies that we had quote the job and he brought a book out to show me everything that he has done. We had some ideas and he gave us some ideas, so he was very collaborative. He was very responsive. He called me right back and scheduled the appointment. He showed up on time when he said that he was going to be there. He was also very personable.

Description of Work
I got a quote from Bret's Carpentry Inc. last year for doing a bunch of stuff like trim work, crown moldings, the decorative moldings on the walls because it got wet, building an exposed beam in our ceiling and everything else.

He was very nice and showed up when he was supposed to. Compared to some other companies that I call, he seems to be more knowledgeable and willing to do it. You can actually buy the crown moulding from them and a lot of places are willing to install it. I bought it along with my actual cabinet, so when you had it, there was no taking it back some one of it not exactly. Actually, I do not think that there was anything they put it on gutter. They did a good job.
