Tom was both responsive to and flexible with me regarding my project. Because I ended up providing the paint for the job (the cost of which had been included in his estimate), he graciously helped me with a small repair job unrelated to the project he was hired for, and called it square. He was thoughtful about what it would take to get the job done, beyond simply constructing the shelves he was contracted for—ensuring we'd be able to get the pre-built shelves up our narrow staircase before committing to build them in one piece; noting where trim would have to be altered, finding out of we had remnants of that trim on-hand to complete the job with (fortunately, we did) rather than just assuming we didn't and purchasing new as-close-as-he-could-find-to-matching materials; adding a central row of shelf supports at my request when I expressed concern about the potential bowing of the long, thin shelves over time due to the weight I expected the shelves to carry; working carefully within a somewhat confined space to avoid causing peripheral damage. The installation was prompt and professional. I'm no expert in the average price of hiring a personal contractor for a small job, but his price seemed fair, and workmanship commendable.May 17, 2017Verified
Tom did a great job. He was pleasant, arrived on time and cleaned up each day. I would use his services again, and would recommend him to others needing carpentry work done.Feb 28, 2017Verified
My experience with Simons Carpentry was outstanding! Tom built a fabulous closet for my basement room. It is a work of art! He also built a new screen door for my front porch and solved a long standing problem by fixing the way it opens and closes! In addition, he built a new backing to my armoire. Tom is courteous, hard-working, and a pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend Tom for any carpentry work!Nov 2, 2016Verified
Tom did a great job with our crown moulding. Very professional and accessible. I'd recommend him to anyone.Nov 21, 2015Verified
We hired Tom to turn a walk in closer into a built in bookcase and he did an excellent job. The final product was exactly what we had envisioned and he was able to bring that to life in a professional and efficient manner. I definitely plan to use Simons Carpentry again in the future.Nov 3, 2015Verified
