Darrell was able to get a crew together and accommodate three projects in one afternoon, which included raising a bowing glass slider, aligning my main entry door, as well as repairing all the rollers on a glass shower door. I'd probably say they came well over-prepared since they were done with all project in around 4 hours. His entire staff was very courteous, clean, and professional. At multiple times during the work, they checked in with me for concerns/questions. I can't say one way or another if his quote was reasonable or in the vicinity of others. All that matters is that I needed to get the job done ASAP as I was moving in to a new home, a storm was coming, and the repairs needed to get done - and Darrell and team came through. Many thanks to Darrell, Tiger, Armando, Drew, and Tyrone.

Darrell and his crew did a fantastic job replacing both my front and back doors, including adding new security doors. Construction was quick, communication was excellent, and the work was top notch. I would highly recommend Darrell to any of my friends.

Andy and the team were flawless in their execution. I threw them a couple of curveballs with regard to mounting a speaker and also asked they tighten up some areas of the existing cabinetry (not under the contract). They handled it all with no exceptions. New cabinet fits perfectly and matches all of the other cabinets. I will b hiring Andy and VAC in the future as they really are craftsmen.

I can't say enough good things about my experience working with Master Craft and Design. My husband and I moved into our home 3 years ago and have worked with our fair share of carpenters, and handy men. I'm not easy to please and none of them made me want to work with them again in the future. However, our experience with Eddie and his team has been the opposite. Eddie came to give us a quote and was patient and enthusiastic. He gave us an opportunity to tell him what we wanted, but he still offered details and direction towards ways to get creative. We loved that! He took our budget well into consideration and we hired him immediately. Once he started working, we were even further impressed. We worked with Eddie for about a month and the ENTIRE TIME he was on time, flexible, energetic, friendly, patient and approachable. He would check in with us constantly as the work progressed, and didn't get frustrated once if we needed something fixed or if he had to make another trip to home depot! He also threw in many little freebies along the way. Eddie and his crew were sweet and trustworthy, We have dogs and small children and they never made us feel that we were in their way or bothersome. The craftsmanship is outstanding. Our house was nice before but now it has that "wow factor". We kept adding ideas as the time went on and he was able to balance it all (along with other jobs and offers) and get it done in a timely manner. We received wainscoting through most of our main areas, including accent walls on our stairway, crown throughout the house and a complete fireplace demo and remodel with built in shelving and a new mantle. GORGEOUS, it's all so bold and classic. The house feels more cohesive now. I would be happy to show pictures of my home or offer more information about Master Craft in the future. They did an excellent job. Eddie is our go-to from here on out!

We contracted Master Craft and Design to build our window casings and were so impressed by the quality that we contracted Master Craft again for custom wainscoting in our foyer and dining room. I am beyond pleased with the results and can't wait to have more work done by MCD. Everyone who comes into our home compliments his handiwork. Edward Ringmeier is a true craftsman!

Manuel was very responsive and did a really great job! He installed an entire set of pre assembled kitchen cabinets for us for a reasonable price and was able to customize a drawer cabinet to convert to a base sink cabinet. He also did it in less than a day! Really appreciated the quality and speed of his work. Would definitely recommend him as the best carpenter I have worked with

Sam L.

Manuel did a great job. Excellent communication and follow thru. The cost of the labor and equipment was more than fair. The vinyl siding work lead to conversations about repairs needed within our home and we decided to go with G-Lez Builders for the basement work. EXCELLENT job on the flooring and stairs - Excellent.

Chris is great carpenter! Not only does he come on time but he picked up the materials so he could start on time and finish on time. Many contractors won't do that. His work was great and he and his colleague cleaned up after and put the garbage into bags to be thrown away. I would hire him in a second! His price was reasonable also. The main thing is you can hire without any worry if you have never used him before. Thanks Thumbtack for introducing me to someone of such great quality work.

Thomas was a amazing carpenter, and does a amazing job. He is a carpenter that does quality work and actually has pride in his work. He and his helped are excellent and if i could give more than 5 stars on here I would. Thomas and Jay were the best company I have delt with. They cleaned up after them selves, moved back all the furniture, but most important they did quality work. This guy is the real deal, anyone looking for a carpenter , call this guy. U won't regret it, I am a very picky guy as far as work, quality and really couldn't find anything to complain about. Amazing job. He installed 550 feet of crown molding, first floor 5 1/4 and second floor 4 1/4 , painted all trimming, chalked it and nail holes, and did some of the best work of a carpenter. We are also hiring him to build and install the mud room storage. If anyone wants to talk to me about his quality of work or this review, feel free 7738419230.

We hired Todd to install crown molding in three rooms on our first floor. He was quick to respond, stuck to his original price, and completed the project on schedule. Todd is a hard worker who is detail oriented and it shows in his professional workmanship. We would hire him again and recommend him to others.

I wrote my own scope for the work to be done and Curtis was the only contractor that took the additional time to make sure my scope was correct. Basically I did the removal of my 16 year old carpet and padding from my loft and stairs. Removed the staples and cleaned the bare plywood floors. Submitted to Thumbtack for bid and got back 5 estimates. Curtis was not the lowest nor the highest but his comments let me know he knew what he was doing. I am so glad he took the additional time to suggest to me additional things I missed. I am a contractor myself and I have installed wood floors, but I could not do the job Curtis did for my loft and stairs. He did a wonderful job and I will definitely use him again to do work in my home. Very professional, very neat.

I worked with Zurek Construction on my kitchen remodel--Matthew and Wojciech--and they were outstanding! I have an old house with sloping floors and odd angles, and they were able to custom cut moldings and shelves to work with my unique space. They also worked with me to fit in cabinets that I had purchased myself, and to come up with a good, working design for the kitchen. They were punctual, hardworking and affordable, and are just great carpenters! I am grateful for their great work and will hire them again!

We initially contracted with Tom to remodel two bathrooms and install tile floor throughout our downstairs family room, hall and son's downstairs bedroom. Tom was doing such a great job so we began to trust his work the more we saw getting done. We then also asked him to remove wood paneling, install drywall, paint our entire lower level, add can lighting and install solid core doors throughout our house. We are thrilled with the finished product. He works faster alone then other contractors do with entire crews! Great work at a reasonable price.

They did an amazing job on refinishing my hardwoods! They were in pretty bad shape..I was beyond pleased with the finished product. Our job took longer than expected to complete (due to flooring conditions) they were very patient with the situation. I would highly recommend this company to anyone and will be using them in the future. In fact, we've already hired them for anther project. Very thankful for their hard work!

We had Taylor Hardwood Floors refinish a deck, do some interior wood finishing (including fixing laminate flooring that was installed improperly), and a daunting soffit and fascia project that they absolutely RESCUED by MAGIC! And by magic I mean he's a highly skilled carpenter. So while they are fabulous at hardwood floors, they are also great at ANYTHING construction related. Highly recommend!

Extremely happy with everything about Brian. He was responsive, prompt (came same day), quoted the most reasonable price and dependable. I had an issue with my Badger 100 garbage disposal and Brian beat all other quotes out of the water, while not jeopardizing his expertise and workmanship. He installed a new disposal and was very competitively price but most importantly, asked about my issue and recommended a higher model. I've had issues with Badger 100 in the past - they don't last and I'm very meticulous about what goes down the drain. I've worked with tradesmen/carpenters/construction companies in the past and knew the labor involved was not extensive. Brian was honest, personable and I'd highly recommend him for any project you have. He's versed in many capacities. In fact, I would refer him to anyone looking for services. Watch out for companies that want to charge you over $150-$250 for a small project. Research your issue and get a quote from K7. So glad I found him on Thumbtack!!! Highly recommend.

The guys at K7 Construction are fantastic. Very professional, respectful and they do great work! I am a life-long Naperville resident and have recommended these guys to a number of friends and family. They replaced my water-heater on extremely short notice, installed a junction box and ceiling fan along with hiding my messy tv cable wires behind my walls. Any job, big or small, these guys have a customer for life.

I would recommend them for your housing projects. I have a couple other things I will be using them for....thanks Brian and Brad for a great job today... roof looks great and two of my neighbors even said so!!!

I am extremely happy with the work Lorenzo has done; he does outstanding work. Lorenzo has completed several projects for me. I hired Lorenzo to refinish my basement. He transformed the space from a damp and dingy space into a warm and welcoming entertainment space for my family. We now spend more time in the basement than any other part of the house. I am so happy with the work that Lorenzo did that I hired him to do several other smaller jobs. Lorenzo has replaced a toilet that was leaking. He fixed my electoral wiring that another handyman incorrectly installed. He installed a new exterior door. I would highly recommend Lorenzo, as he does great quality work and he is up front about the cost.

Christopher remodeled our bathroom inn April of this year, he came highly recommended by a family friend who had hired Rayson Remodeling to install hardwood flooring throughout their entire first floor. He was extremely knowledgeable upon first meeting him for the initial estimate and gave us a fair proposal in comparison to other contractors who also bid the job. He was very punctual and worked long hours untill the job was completed. If i can say one thing about Christopher it is that he is a very meticulous carpenter and never sacrificed quality for time or money. Thanks again Christopher.
