Custom Cabinet Building
Built-in Linen closet.
We hired Mike to build a floor to ceiling linen closet. I had specific design instructions and look in mind. He was easy to work with and the finished product is what I wanted. He needed to tweak one of the door corners but promptly fixed it and we are happy with our new cabinet!

Custom Cabinet Building
Mike remodeled our home office. He replaced old paneling and bookshelves with wainscot, coffered ceilings, and wall to wall book shelves. He did a fabulous job. Very easy to work with and his work is high quality.
We are very happy with a banquette-style storage bench Mike built in our dining area earlier this year. He paid great attention to detail, including all the angles, caulking, making the bench flush with the walls, and went out of his way to communicate and explain each step and decision of the design and construction process. He did the work on schedule, without any messes or clean up required on our part, and stuck to his estimate. We would highly recommend him for any project.
I wanted to finish turning my bedroom into a master suite by adding a closet and dresser. I spoke to two closet design companies and they were unable to come up with a solution that met my needs and fit the space. Mike at Integrity Finishes was able to design, build and install something that completely met my needs. It looks great and its well built. Equally as important; he promptly returned my emails and calls, the work was completed on schedule and the final price matched the quote. Ill definitely use Mike for future projects.

Should have use a drop cloth, permanent scratches on the our floors now. Is a good carpenter who built a well constructed cabinet. Sink and cabinet installation could have been installed with more care.. molding is not fitted well. Caulking was not completed well.. had to have someone else finish it. I may sound picky but it is my bathroom and my dollar. He is a great carpenter.

I did not get a call to take care of these issues. I would have tried to resolve these issues.

Trim or Molding Installation
Mike attached some IKEA PAX system closet frames together for me and filled the gaps between the units and the walls at both ends to make it look flush and more like custom closets. After sending some photos, we were able to discuss and schedule an appointment quickly. He supplied all necessary hardware and just asked for me to pick up the trim pieces from Home Depot to save myself money. It only took him a couple of hours and was well worth the cost, my closet looks great!

Mike did great work. I have a difficult work schedule which made scheduling work with other handymen challenging, but Mike made it happen. He did some dry wall work and tile work in my bathroom and it looks great.

Mike listened to what we wanted and ensured the finished product met our expectations. The work was completed within the timeframe we needed and we would definitely use him again or recommend him to a friend.

Mike has a fantastic eye for detail. He's helped me with two projects and both have successes. He's quick to get estimates together and is clear in his communication about expectations. He listens to any idea I may have and doesn't hesitate to tell me if it's feasible or not, always offering alternate suggestions which have been spot on every time.
The condominium he just "beautified" for us listed and was under contract in less than 24 hours!

Mike built two drawers for me for an already-existing built-in. When we first talked, he asked good detailed questions that gave me confidence that he knew what he was doing! He was easy to work with, responded to e-mails/phone calls quickly, and was always on-time when we had to meet. I'm not very experienced so he gave me some helpful tips on installing everything. I especially appreciated that he helped me make some minor fixes when things didn't fit the first time around (based on my measurements).
We called Mike on a Sunday and he was out the same day to look at what we needed and start work on the estimate. Mike involved us in every decision and had valuable recommendations (based on his years of experience with similar projects) about light placement, paint selection, etc to make sure we got what we wanted. We're very happy with the finished product and will call Mike first if we have additional projects.

My experience with Mike Howell was amazing. From the minute I contacted him to come to have a look at my closet to the moment we contracted him and he finished he was extraordinary. I would definitely refer him to anyone I know. Excellent job, amazing craftsmanship. thanks a bunch!

Mike did a great job completing a variety of jobs on a house I was getting ready to sell. I was very satisfied with all the work and will hire Mike again if I have more work that needs to be done.
Mike, gave me a timely quote, showed up on time and showed up everyday until the job was 100% finished. Three things that most contractors do not do. The workmanship was excellent and im already set on hiring him again for my next project. He also informed me along the way of potential issues and cost increases so that I wouldn't be surprised at the end by anything. everything went smoothly though, and I couldn't be happier.
Extremely easy to work with and does what he says he will do with outstanding workmanship. The name 'Integrity' is very fitting.

Michael repaired 2 pairs of French doors at my home. He saved me over $5000.00, as I thought both doors needed to be replaced. He checked both doors, told me replacement was not necessary, that both doors could be repaired at a fraction of replacement cost. This has been a very rainy summer and both doors were leaking. He returned after I contacted him a second time to correct the upstairs doors as they were still leaking. After his final correction, both doors are water tight. Mike was quick with a very fair estimate, the repair, and made adjustments as needed. He was very cordial, professional, knowledgeable about the needed repairs; letting me know exactly what he planned to do.

I think Mike Howell could build and fix anything - his mind is always working and he enjoys the challenge - he did an excellent job with my closets (he added shelves in 3 closets that had 10' ceilings),a laundry cabinet in the laundry room and the most wonderful job on pull out drawers in my bathroom and kitchen. He painted everything to exactly the color of my walls. He thinks of everything - I appreciated his ideas and his WORK,
I needed Mike to repair some water damage to exterior cabinet doors. Quality, excellent.
Very much on time, Mike showed up on time and returned on time. It was nice that he takes cabinet doors to his work shop, and not constantly kneeling down to repair problem. As all other contractors wanted to do.
I believe therefore the quality of workmanship is much better.
Time wise, about a week, but this was discussed in advance. Mike had doors repaired and in back in place by deadline. All went well.
Would, I use Mike again? Absolutely!

Carpentry and Woodworking
*At our first meeting with Mike it quickly became obvious that he was very
knowledgeable and experienced. He was thorough in his questions and
measurements and was pleasant and easy to work with. The final product and
installation exceeded our expectations. *
Mike built some bookshelves for us in a bedroom and they are PERFECT. The details and level of precision show that he's clearly a master of his craft. He is focused on customer service and takes the time to clearly explain what he's doing. Great experience. Highly recommended.

We needed a very detailed cabinet to match an existing credenza.
Mike did a VERY fine job.
I would highly recommend him to anyone needing customized work.
Mike is a real tradesman. Performs quality & timely work! Qualified to perform many different items. A contractor to be trusted for sure, has done work for me for over 20 years.
