Joe was very friendly and responsive. He started the job and stayed on task until it was finished. He estimated the time it would take to complete the job exactly to the day. My kitchen cabinets came out beautifully so much more than I anticipated.

Cabinet Refinishing and Repair

Joe was a lifesaver for me on my property in saddle river NJ. He is more than a carpenter. He is highly skilled and passionate about his craft. I had numerous contractors come in the tell me my kitchen cabinets all needed to be replaced, in other words, a huge 50-60k+ project. Joe was the first guy that came in and listened to my needs, i wanted the ruined bottom cabinets fixed to match the upper cabinets, without spending an arm and a leg. He ended up rebuilding my lower cabinets from scratch and replacing them all, got them to match the color of the wood on the uppers perfectly, installed hardware, etc. He saved me a huge amount of money, and made my kitchen look new again. He is a straight shooter and will tell you the truth no matter what. I also have a wooden front door, that is 8 ft high and almost 5 feet wide... the door was damaged and i thought it was beyond repair. Every contractor told me i had to spend 10-15k to replace the door... Joe took that project on too, maybe one he wishes he never did because of how difficult it was, but he kept at it, and made sure i was satisfied... my door looks brand new, check out the before and after. and again he saved me loads of money in a tough time(covid 19 and just purchased a new home). Joes brother Anthony is great too. Both awesome guys that know their stuff down to every detail, and they are a pleasure to deal with. I can go on but the bottom line is Joe and anthony are the best, dont hesitate. Call them, hire them, whatever price they quote you is fair and worth it. Will call them again without hesitation on my next project.

We hired a bum contractor to build custom cabinets for our kitchen and he left us with the job incomplete. Joe came in to finish the job and really saved us. He helped us problem solve due to the subpar work of the previous contractor and our cabinetry came out looking great. He is honest, professional, and an overall nice guy. I would highly recommend him to others and would use him again.

Cabinet Refinishing and Repair

Our kitchen cabinets were in great shape but needed touch ups. I was unable to find someone to match the color of the cabinets and be willing to come into New York City to take on a relatively small job. Joe was able to match the color and did an excellent, professional job and now our kitchen looks brand new. I would highly recommend Joe Dente. Joe communicates well and charges a fair price for very high quality work.
