Mike brings a lot of energy and a positive attitude to his work. He called ahead to confirm he was on his way, and soon showed up ready to get to work with his assistant. We had a long list of trim carpentry bits and pieces, left-overs at the end of a long reno. A large transom window trim had been refused by several other carpenters. We waited almost 9 months to find someone willing to tackle this project. Mike was up for the challenge and did an excellent job of cutting the two badly formed trim arcs to make one good one. The baseboard work around some steps is excellent.
Old damaged stair stringers were given a whole new lease on life by assistant Mauro, with thin stock wood covering 65 years of dents and thick paint.
Mike also installed some door handles for us, and paid careful attention to casing work in our crawl space even though it is hidden out of sight. He is very willing to discuss options and keeps client satisfaction a top priority. Quality clearly is genuinely important to this hard working young professional.
At the end of the day, a few small items were left. Mike gave his word that he would return, so we paid in full. (His quote was half the price of another quote we had). The next day Mike was back to complete everything as promised, and to adjust one handle from the day before, which was slightly misaligned.
His communication and carpentry skills are great, and he is a very pleasant person to have in the house. One of the best trades we have worked with in our 2 year reno process.
