    Overall, I am very pleased with the service Jeff from Southern Door and Trim provided. The quality of the work was fantastic on my crown molding throughout my home. Jeff was very professional and it was impressive how quick he was to respond to all my questions and concerns. The work was done in a total of two days and we couldn't be happier with the final product. Thank you again for such a pleasant experience. We highly recommend Southern Door and Trim!

    Jeff was very professional and always on time to our meetings. He spent time going over the designs and layouts and always gave me the impression that he genuinely cared about the quality of his work. He was never in a hurry to leave or rush off to do something else. I gave him the keys to my property and he spent a day and a half to finish the installation, painting, and trimming of the breakfast room seating area and the arch wine shelf. My experience with Jeff was excellent and I look forward to doing business with him again in the future.

    Definitely recommend!
    We hired Jeff to install crown molding in our home after he did a great job at my parents’ house. He came out quickly and was able to complete the project same day. Would definitely recommend.

    HIGHLY Recommend
    Jeff did an amazing job for us!! We had all new trim, crown and door/window casing replaced throughout our entire home. Jeff is truly a master at his craft!! He is a perfectionist and it showed in his work. He often worked while we were at work and had no reservations about leaving him in our home. He is trustworthy and very professional. Always cleaned up his work area at the end of every day. I can not recommend him highly enough. We found him on Thumbtack and have no regrets. Thank you Jeff of Southern Door and Trim for transforming our home and giving us some great ideas!!!!!

    Great carpenter
    Jeff Lane was wonderful to work with and very professional. He gave us a very reasonable quote and performed the work in a timely manner. He installed crown molding throughout the first floor, added a coffered ceiling to the office and wainscoting in the foyer plus more. My husband and I are thrilled with the work he did and plan on hiring him again for more work in the future. We highly recommend him!

    Irresponsible and work without warranty!
    I hired Jeff to help me with my stairs and my upstairs quarter rounds. He showed up seemed very responsible and finished the job in a day and walked out with my Payment promising that his work has warranty and will come back fix whatever if it isn't right. Apparently, that was a LIE. Three of the stairs are not glued down correctly and now it is already moving around and making noise when we walk on it. I tried to text him and call him to get him to come back to fix it, but couldn't even find him. It went directly to voicemail and he never contacted me back either. I guess sometimes you cant just hire someone based on good reviews and they have their friends and family write them for you. DO NOT hire him to work for you because you don't know if you are going to get what you are going to pay for. Hope this review help someone.

    Buyer Beware
    Jeff had reached out to me when I submitted a project for a built-in desk for my living room. We arranged a time to meet and he came to my home, saw the space, I gave him a picture of what I was hoping for, he gave me a reasonable quote, and told me he'd be in touch later that day with a plan for the project. I told him this project was a Christmas gift for my husband and although I knew it wouldn't be completed in time, I was still hoping to give a picture of Jeff's plan to my husband on Christmas Day. The day after I met with Jeff, he hadn't contacted me, so I messaged him just to ask if he had anything ready. He did not respond to this message so I tried one last time to no avail. Unfortunately, the wonderful gift idea I had planned to surprise my husband with on Christmas did not happen and I was utterly disappointed. I don't like to leave a bad review for someone who seemed so nice, but I just wish he had not led me on; had he just told me that the project was not worth his time or that he was unable to do it at this time, I would have been understanding. I write this review to warn future potential customers of Jeff's lack of communication and follow through and ultimately, of my disappointment.

    Hired to do lattice work on the crawlspace of my historic home. Was extremely timely in coming out and giving me a very fair bid. Showed up when he said he would and got the work done in an efficient manner. Lattice looks great, is in line with Historic District requirements and built to last. Highly recommend for your wood needs!

    Jeff was very professional and repaired our baseboards in a quick and orderly manner. You barely even noticed he was here and when he left it looked as if he had never been here at all, no mess left behind. Baseboards looked brand new. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

    Overall a great job! Jeff responded quickly and was able to fit us into our tight time frame and his busy schedule to install crown moulding in our guest bedroom. Jeff knocked it out in no time, and the job looks wonderful! Wee would highly recommend Jeff for anyone looking for quality crown moulding at a fair price. We will definitely be using Jeff when the rest of the house is ready for more crown moulding!

    Jeff did a great job, he installed crown molding, chair rail and wainscot in my kitchen and living room. The crown and chair is perfectly flush and the wainscot was cut perfectly, even around difficult windows. He was honest and very reasonably priced and I will use him in the future for sure. I've already received so many comments on how great everything looks.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Is not really necessary in this field but I do stay up to date on all of the latest products available through different suppliers that I do business with.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My brother in law was doing finish carpentry and hired me as a helper. I always liked building things so I guess it was a good fit.
What types of customers have you worked with?
My biggest request is crown molding followed by baseboard, doorway casings, and custom staircases.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Recently I had built a custom cypress double gate for a repeat customer of mine. It was to be built to match a pergola that I had built for them a year earlier. Both of them were firsts and both came out just the way we had all wanted them to.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you aren't sure of what you want don't be afraid to ask questions.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There are a lot of shady contractors out there. Please do your research on who you hire and bring into your home. If you're unsure of them, there is nothing wrong with asking for references.
