    Laffey asked for photos of the room where I needed work. I sent the photos the next day. After a week I haven't heard back. I finally decided on another contractor after never receiving a quote from Laffey.

    He came out to review my project and said he would have a quote for me the next day. I have not heard back from him since. I have called and left 3 messages trying to reach him. That was 2 weeks ago. I hope everything is ok with him.

    I found Brendan thru He did crown molding in my living room and dining room, new trim along with door casings in the rooms and halls. It looks amazing and he really took his time and made sure everything was done right. He took care of everything and relieved us of most of the stress that comes alone with remoldeling. We will be using Laffey Carpentry again in the near future. I highly recommend him. Amy

    Brendan Laffey has worked for me for several years on various projects. He has done everything from small repairs to the full remodeling of my baths. Not only is he a master carpenter, he can do anything related to construction! His vast knowledge combined with his absolute demand for perfection in his work makes him truly one of a kind. He has assisted me through 4 nightmare remodels that I have done on older homes and has never been anything other than professional, kind, patient and unbelievably exceptional at everything he does.

    Brendan has done a number of jobs on our house both large and small and we have been thrilled with the results every time. He is a gifted carpenter who always comes up with brilliant design solutions for whatever you are trying to accomplish. It's like getting a top-notch architect, engineer and carpenter all in one. This has proven invaluable to us on several occasions. Beyond that he is an extremely nice and trustworthy person. He is the only person I have ever asked to do a job without asking the cost. I knew whatever he said at the end would be fair and it always was. If you are looking for superior quality work at a reasonable price without having to stress over it, Brendan is your man. I can't recommend him highly enough.

    I once introduced Brendan to another contractor as the 2nd best carpenter that I knew, my father was number 1. My father has since passed away.

    Brendan has done a number of jobs at my home, including replacing a front door, installing a new toilet and kitchen faucet. All of these jobs were done right the first time, at a fair price. In short, Brendan is one of the only contractors on the planet that I trust.

    I would highly recommend Laffey Carpentry for numerous reasons. They were on time, professional at all times, " the pricing was right" and the finished product was absolutley marvelous. I still to this day look our our remodeled fire place and think I am so glad we decided to use Laffey Carpentry.

    Brendan Laffey has done work for many members of our family, ranging from general contractor, laying floors, plumbing, carpentry, etc.. Brendan's work is of the highest quality for sure, but add timeliness, neatness, honesty and good old fashioned common sense-you are not going to get anyone better. His is one of the few Carpenters/Contractors that my husband and I will give a blanket reference for any job. He treats every job as if it was his own home (which he redid and is beautiful).

    I have had Laffey Carpentry do quite a few things at my house including putting on a new front door and screen door, updating my bathroom, and restoring some woodwork. I have been extremely happy with the results and have felt that the price was always more than fair. I was referred by a friend who told me that Laffey Carpentry is the best and I agree with him wholeheartedly! Good luck finding someone who is as nice, friendly, and honest that does such a quality job as them!!!
