Craig did two bathroom projects for us. There were several things we really liked about his services. First, quotes were quickly provided and thorough (there were no surprises). His craftsmanship was excellent and it was evident from the beginning that he takes pride in ensuring a quality project. He can't stand poorly done work and took it upon himself to "fix" a number of issues from work that had been done previously. It was also convenient that Craig is skilled at various trades including electrical and plumbing - meaninng he was a one stop shop for all of the work that we required. Craig was easy to work with and I would gladly recommend his services.
Craig is pleasant and easy to deal with. He works collaboratively with the client to develop a plan for the project. He was punctual, dependable and responded quickly when there was a glitch.
We hired Craig's Carpentry recommended to us by a friend to finish half of our basement and make it useful for our kids to play ping-pong and watch TV/play games with friends. Us and Craig agreed on the layout of the basement floor plan and finish to be done (drywall installed and finished/painted, laminate floor, doors installed, and all the other details that are required with such work) and Craig delivered exactly as we agreed. After all the work was done the basement looked very nice and we had friends complimenting us.
It is my goal to give my clients the best experience possible when I am doing renovations for them. As I am a late arrival to Trusted Pros, I was attempting to obtain new reviews quickly and didn't realize how fast time flys. It it unrealistic to expect clients that I did work for over 4.5 years ago to remember their experience in enough detail to obtain a 5/5 rating. I apologize to Nela for requesting the review but thank her for taking the time to do it. I will attempt to keep my requests for reviews from past clients to more recent jobs so the experience is more fresh in their minds and in turn make the review a more relevant representation of my business today.
