Introduction: In my business, quality is the most important thing. There's no substitute for quality. Clients expect a quality job. But if getting the lowest price you can find is your first concern, you should remember, you get what you pay for. I deliver a top-quality job, every time. I can't work any other way. My reputation for quality and excellence is as important to me as the work itself. And if you read my client's reviews, you'll see just how true that is. I love the work that I do and so do my clients. That's what it's all about for me. If the client is happy, I'm happy. I go the extra mile for my clients and I guarantee my work. That means that if anything goes wrong or if something breaks or just isn't right, I will make it right. I stand by my work. I have over 40 years of experience in a wide range of construction, renovations, installations and additions. Specializing in kitchen and bathroom remodeling, tile, custom cabinetry, built-ins, decks, garages, etc., so my knowledge of construction is over a broad spectrum. However, over the last several years it has become necessary for me to cut back on the specific services that I offer. I will "occasionally" take on a bathroom renovation project if it makes sense from a financial and esthetic standpoint for my business but for the most part, I am only offering specialty woodworking. Custom-built Cabinetry, Bookcases, Mantels, Wainscotting, and Built-Ins. I no longer offer top to bottom renovations or remodeling. For jobs like that, you should consult with a General Contractor. I do custom woodworking, and that is all.

Custom Cabinet Building

My husband & I highly recommend Chris and CMK Custom Carpentry and Renovations for renovation work. He delivers on what he promises - for us - beautiful pantry cabinets that will stand the test of time. Bonus - materials he uses - NON-TOXIC, as his competitors proposed wood-like products that cause cancer.

General Carpentry

We don't typically write reviews but we just couldn't have asked for more from Chris Kehoe. We had two projects, a custom kitchen counter/cabinet and a tricky stairwell. Both required creativity but needed to fit the style of the home. Chris delivered excellent work, was warm and easy to work with and was very fair in his pricing. This is your guy!

General Carpentry

Chris was a pleasure to work with. He built us a custom cabinet for the laundry room, installed beadboard in the bathroom and turned an old dresser into a sink console. He was so helpful throughout the process by recommending resources for everything I was looking for. He was right there with me during the struggle of trying to find the right size, shape, style sink for the dresser. His work was high quality; he was always on time; and did what he said he'd do. We will definitely hire him again for any future needs.

Thank you, Tracy. It was a pleasure for me as well. It's always a pleasure working with folks who have great ideas, know what they want and can visualize the end result. It makes my job a lot easier. I look forward to working with you and Brian again, anytime. 😄👍

Bathroom Remodel

The best thing that could have happened to us was when the original contractor I hired was a no show because thats how I came upon Chris. He is a true professional in every way. He just doesn't do the job, he does it right. He takes true pride in every aspect of his work. His work values are outstanding and we couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend him. Not only is the quality of is work outstanding, he goes above and beyond and he is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet.

Wendy, thank you so much. It makes me happy knowing you are happy. That's the best part of my job. It was such a pleasure working with you and Randy and I hope we get a chance to do another project again soon. Enjoy your new bathroom. 🙂

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Each job is different. Some contractors use a "per square foot" rate that they charge for a remodel or renovation but whatever that number is, it is bound to change and it will only go up. There are all sorts of items that are not included in that number and I think it creates false expectations for the client when they are given a number and then they start seeing it go up and up. I don't like to do that. I first meet with a potential client to discuss the scope of the project. I do my inspection of the job site, do my measurements, discuss the type and cost of materials to be used and then put together a detailed estimate of materials, time and labor required to do the job, then submit it to the client for their approval.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    There is no "typical process". I do whatever best serves the client.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have over 40 years of professional experience in all areas of construction and renovations.
