Peter is sloppy and unscrupulous. He took shortcuts whenever he could, many of which we discovered long after the renovation was over (eg. painting over accidental scratches in the cabinetry, which we discovered when it yellowed over time, instead of coming clean about the damage so we could replace it immediately; mismatched cuts to wood trims; insetting a sink into a wood counter, which nulled our guarantee because sinks aren't supposed to be inset into wood counters, as we've learned). He made design choices that couldn't be undone without bothering to consult us first. His attitude was arrogant at every turn. Worse, he wouldn't correct some mistakes until we signed a contract for Carpe Diem to renovate our basement, too. We finally gave up. This company was recommended to us by a friend, but I wish we had done our due diligence. We could have saved ourselves some stress – and gotten a better built kitchen.
