Deck Refacing, Garbage Box, Planter and Gate

Best experience (by far) that we have had with a contractor! We really can’t say enough good things about Thomas and Tom! They never failed to exceed our expectations and they are really great guys too. Every day they arrived on time, they worked hard and were meticulous when it came to cleaning up. In fact, they left the job site cleaner than when they arrived. Their workmanship was outstanding with every fine detail thought through and executed to perfection. They also did lots of little extras and fine touches because they felt it would make something look or function better, and these they did at no charge or at cost, because they cared about the final product and how it would work for us. At the time the project was finished we were already contemplating what else we could get them to work on. What a relief to find a contractor that is so knowledgeable and that you can rely on for outstanding workmanship and timely results. We would highly recommended Thomas and Tom! And, our dog loved them too!

EV & PW Thank you so much! It is so nice to see that our hard work and our good service is noticed. In today's tough times, we fight hard enough to 'convince strangers' that we are the right, best and only choice for fence and deck and fine carpentry all priced fairly. And this today makes us the exception. And when we do get these jobs, we do make darn sure that the client is rewarded by their decision, in service that frankly, many don't expect to be of such high calibre and that we are so proud to deliver to each and every job. So thank you for noticing and then taking the time to write such a glowing review we really do appreciate it. Enjoy it all and do please have a great balance of summer and a big hug to Abe the dog for us also! All Best, from I and the apprentice we thank you again. Please keep our number on file if you ever need us again or to refer us: 416 522 2017 or now see us on the web at www.rawlinsoncarpentry.com.

Deck

We are very grateful to Rawlinson Carpentry for building our deck, having had 4 quotes prior to speaking with RC we were happy to find that they offered competitive pricing, but offered us higher quality service and materials. The knowledge RC staff was able to share with us was extremely valuable and left us feeling at ease with them working on such an important aspect of our home.

From the beginning RC was helpful, upfront, and paid great attention to detail. RC staff was polite and always extremely professional to work with.

The deck RC provided us was beautiful and matched the fences they had made for us wonderfully. Having had a few guests over in the recent weeks since the deck has been completed has warranted many compliments.

I will most definitely be referring Rawlinson Carpentry to any family/ friends in need of similar services! 10/10 all around!!

Porch -Over

The concrete porch at the front of my house had become a real eyesore and a safety hazard : gaping cracks, holes etc.
I wanted a wooden replacement and found Thomas on Homestars.
He and his apprentice Tom came out on the weekend and we discussed options. I was impressed with his knowledge, creative suggestions, lovely portfolio and honesty ( eg: pricing). Next, he sent a detailed estimate and I saw no reason to receive another as his
seemed very reasonable. So, I booked a date. The plan was to first remove/ haul the stairs and repair the rest. Next, would be built : a slightly larger porch over ( 7' X 9' 3" ) , enclosed stairs , skirting all around and a retaining "tie" to the road. When the project commenced, Thomas and Tom always arrived on time, worked tirelessly, kept the work site tidy and even threw in some "freebies" along the way ( eg : I love the pie-shaped ledge !).
Now I have a solid, level and stunning porch that has not only enhanced the curb appeal but is so inviting that I am on the hunt for some more outdoor furniture. ( I had never sat out there before...too "cold" /cramped). Thanks to Thomas and Tom for rejuvenating my home with this wonderful new addition. I hope to retain them both for some more work here in the Fall. ( P.S. My dog Sammi misses all of their attention !)
their "pats " as well ! )

porch re-build and fence repair

I found Rawlinson Carpentry on Homestars and feel so lucky and very grateful to have done so. While Tom and Thomas encouraged me to seek further quotes, I was so impressed with their experience, professionalism, attention to detail and sympathy towards the architecture of my 116-year old home, I booked them as soon as I could and didn't call anyone else!
Tom and Thomas are reliable, communicate with you every step of the way, leave the place neat and tidy each day (who am I kidding; they left it TIDIER than when it was before they arrived!) and the quality of their work is outstanding. They also kindly offered to take a few items that I had cluttering up my back yard along with some of the work debris that they were taking to the dump. I had a rotting porch and a falling down fence and they left me with a gorgeous, strong, new porch that suits my house beautifully and fixed a back fence that now looks sturdy and new. They will be back soon to paint the porch too.
I have fallen back in love with my house thanks to the two amazing, very personable men and their highly-skilled, fairly-priced, work. Thank you, Rawlinson Carpentry! A++++++++

Awesome fence !!!

Tom and Thomas did an outstanding job at doing our fence for the backyard. They were very polite and always communicated with us and really explained everything thoroughly so there were no surprises. They always came in early and left the place clean and tidy. Their price was also very competitive and their work was fabulous!! They really went above and beyond with doing many other things and throwing in some extra freebies. Overall we would rate them A+++++ !!!
Thank you Tom and Thomas , it's really been a pleasure and you really created our backyard into a paradise and made all our neighbors jealous!!! I would highly recommend them to everyone! Thank you so much and definitely we will be in touch and calling you back for our next projects!!

1920's porch restoration

There are not many carpenters that would take on a job to repair, salvage and restore the design elements of my original 1920's front porch, but Tom was happy to oblige. I appreciated his integrity - he will follow through on EVERYTHING that he promises and then some! Please pick Tom if you want an absolute thorough, meticulous, detail oriented job. He takes unparalleled pride in his work and will go to great lengths to make sure you are happy. He communicates with you often to ensure that you are informed of what is happening with the work and gently reminds you when he is scheduled to arrive at your home. He leaves the job just as he arrives: clean and tidy. A++ Thank you!

Backyard fencing, gates and planters

Rawlinson Carpentry (RC) just completed my backyard project which included fence work, new gates and large planters. I couldn't be happier with the work that was done, with them as people, and with the price.
RC was one of a number of fence builders that I contacted in 2016 but it was too late in the season and everyone was booked. But I remembered my phone conversation with RC and being impressed by their friendliness and confidence in the quality of their work and pricing. So I naturally contacted them very early in 2017 along with 2 other companies for quotes. And it turned out my impression was accurate - their price was the lowest and they spent the most time with me thoroughly explaining the work in detail.
As the work was being completed, they were true gentlemen, respectful and professional. They kept me informed throughout the job and made sure I knew what was being done before it was done. Every day they left my backyard spotless. That is what I call pride in workmanship.

Joan, Thank you so much for this detailed and great review of 'the difference' we try to make at R.C.
And to hear also that we were the lowest priced quote is also fabulous to see that we work very hard and count on experience, to make sure our quotes are the most competitive in our fields, whilst making sure the customer is constantly informed, and treated with proper service, which is lacking today with so many others. Thank you so much and enjoy the yard makeover Joan and have a wonderful summer!

Rooftop deck

Had the pleasure of hiring Tom and Tom to do a rooftop deck project. Tom clearly communicated timelines, the design and construction of the deck and answered all of our questions in a timely fashion. Kept the worksite clean and was courteous throughout the project, and most importantly, very happy with the end-product so far.

Would definitely hire Tom again for future projects.

Repaired upper deck, built a new lower deck and a shed

Tom and Tom did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend them for your deck project. I received 3 quotes and Tom's quote was very competitive but what stood out the most was Tom's knowledge and attention to details as evidenced by his detailed itemized quote. During the project Tom would keep us up to date on progress as well as consult with us when design changes were needed or requested. The arrived promptly and left a very clean site.
Again, I would highly recommend Rawlinson Carpentry!

Gina (and the boys) It was a True pleasure to serve you guys! And we were proud to 'turn your backyard around' and bring in some real workmanship and quality deck work with repairs to the old improperly built existing upper deck, the all new Sienna lower deck, and the custom shed built for less than what most kits are priced at! So that now you can enjoy the yard of your dreams for years to come. Please do tell all about us.....family, friends and co-workers and on behalf of Tom the apprentice and I, here's wishing you, Carvell and Zachary all the very best and please do stay in touch!
