Furniture Repair

Paul was so great! He was attentive, easy to work with and helped with fixing my item that I needed repairing - if there’s anything that you need fixed, definitely book him for your next craftsman service

Finish Carpentry

Humberto did a great job installing an interior door and frame for us. I got several other quotes for this work, but they were all much more expensive and the contractors were much less responsive. Within just a few days of contacting Paul, they came to site to do the work. I appreciated Humberto’s work quality, including needing to go back to the hardware store early in the day so he could match my existing trim better than what he had on hand, and his professionalism. He worked with a mask on and cleaned up with a shopvac after he was done. You’d never know any contractor had been on site! Paul stopped by later in the day to make sure the project was progressing well and I’ll probably hire them to do more work in our house. Very pleased with the process and the work product!

Furniture Refinishing

Exceptional work Paul completed on 2 high value furniture pieces that required detailed repair. It took precise work to ensure the beauty of these 2 items was maintained post completion of needed repair due to prior accidental damage. Was very impressed with Paul's work and will definitely recommend him to others seeking the same and use him again for like projects.

Furniture Repair

Our mover broke the leg on our dining room table where it attaches to the table. Paul responded promptly to our inquiry. He got the repaired leg back to us on the day promised, and he did a superb job of reconstructing the leg -- first class workmanship. The price he charged was reasonable; more than fair. Paul knew that the table had real significance to us and undoubtedly knew that we would have paid more, but I suspect that taking advantage of his clients' vulnerabilities is not Paul's style.

Paul was a huge help restoring a damaged dining room table! He was up front with the estimate and time frame. He was able to take the table from our home and bring it back. The work looks great and it was well worth the value to have a treasured family piece looking so great!

  • 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.
