About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I can do more. I make furniture and a place to put it (Home Improvement Contractor). I am a finish carpenter but also do tile, flooring installation and repair, light plumbing, light electrical, etc. I grew up the son of a home builder and stared learning the trade at 14 - even to the point where I designed some of dad's houses.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The variety and collaborating with the customer. I love that WOW feeling that comes at the end of the job. "You mean one guy did all this?"

    Paul was professional, on time and did a great job on the glass tile installation. He is very attention to detail oriented and it shows. I would hire him again.
