Went very well Ian took care of our stairs and made them look nice with staining and finishing too. They are much safer to walk on now.

I have read some of the fantastic reviews here, but I feel like my husband and I dealt with a totally different person on our project! Nice guy, but this job with Ian was a disaster from the beginning. First, he always seemed to be in a rush to get things done and was extremely loud, yelling, cursing and literally screaming at his assistant while doing the work. Totally unprofessional and embarras...

As I was finishing my transaction at a hardware store, this dude put his things on the register while I was still being helped, and then cursed me out when my gift card needed to be manually entered by the cashier. He then told the manager who offered to take him in “ya coulda done that 10 minutes ago”. British accent, real pleasant guy. Shouldn’t wear your company’s merchandise if you’re gonna be...

Beautiful. Ian is professional and more importantly punctual and gets the job done. Ian was very attentive to what I wanted done and followed my specifications with some added tweaks. End result exceeded my expectations! Ian is already working on some quotes for additional work I want to do in my condo. I expect to have him back here soon. Best Carpentry is your Best Choice.

Ian came out on the agreed upon date and began building and installing the rails. It was great to see a master carpenter at work. With his critical eye, he made sure that each angle was perfect , that the railing was level and secure. He then stained the entire railing as part of the price. It looks great. A few days later as we were dusting we noticed that one of the wood posts was cracked slight...

Could not be happier with Ian's workmanship and the final product we received. We have an older home with steam radiators that were fitted in tight spaces throughout the home and therefore never covered. With a toddler on the way we knew we needed a solution, options online were not feasible due to the tight spaces/sizes. Ian came, took all relevant measurements, returned a quote promptly, and sch...

Ian and his crew did a great job. I hired him to remove built-ins in my bedroom and also to hang a new exterior door. He removed the built-ins, cut and installed new baseboard molding, repaired the wall and painted it so it looked as good as new. Ian hung the exterior door and added extra weather stripping to account for the door jam being half an inch wider at the bottom than at the top. This is ...

Ian and his partner worked diligently and were unfailingly polite and very punctual. The worst squeaks were dealt with. Many smaller squeaks remain. It may be a function of the age of the oak floor (82 years) or the original workmanship when the floor was laid although I have been in older homes in my area that do not have this problem. I do not regret spending the money to find out if the issue c...
