Paul is very professional and experienced. He was on time, communicated clearly on the project and was flexible and communicative. We collaborated on a closet remodel but I will definitely be calling Paul again for other projects.Apr 26, 2017Verified
I needed numerous larger and smaller repairs done on a beautiful rental condo (the new tenants were already in). I was in a bind, knowing these days it's hard to get what you pay for, let alone someone who is trustworthy and respectable. Fortunately, I found Paul. From our first phone call to the end of the job, Paul was outstanding. He accommodated my schedule and showed up on time. All doors now work perfectly and look great (painted and all). The bathroom installations are excellent, and the drywall repair is excellent too. What's more, he offered and provided creative improvements/solutions, both functionally and aesthetically- a big bonus! This guy knows his stuff. Very mindful in his prep and clean-up too, and he got the job done in almost half the time I thought it would take. I am very satisfied.Sep 16, 2017Verified
The Yankee Craftsman has worked for me for several years providing high quality craftsmanship and design in the various properties i've owned. He has always met or exceeded my expectations, and i highly recommend him. Some of the work he has completed for me includes bathroom renovations, custom tiled showers, hardwood stairs and flooring, and concrete countertops. It is very convenient having a trustworthy craftsman that can handle most of the work i need done.Feb 16, 2017
A little hard to get in touch with over the holiday weekend, but once I was able to communicate with him, he was friendly, on time, and got the job done well for the amount he quoted me. Would hire again.Sep 16, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My rate runs around $85/hr for most of the work I do. I generally work on a time and materials basis, while providing a budget to insure my clients know what the job will cost. Every job is different, and there are variables such as site access, environmental conditions that affect the time it takes in addition to the actual work. These are real costs that must be considered.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?To meet with a client to really understand what they want. . Few jobs are truly as simple as they appear, so it is important I see the work to provide a client the benefit of my experience, to expose the unexpected before we start. This allows for a very predictable outcome.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have formal training in design, engineering and project management, with over 40 years of hands-on experience in so many aspects of restoration and repair. Nearly every project brings some sort of new technique, so the learning process never really stops.
