Comments: Christian is the best carpenter we have ever worked with. He estimated job then completed our renovation on time and on budget. The walls he put up are perfect and expertly finished with clean and sharp seams even in corners. The added bonus was how neatly he works and cleans the work site every day when he leaves! He has creative skills and made us a simple elegant new mantle for the fireplace. He was able to handle minor complications that cropped up. We will absolutely hire Christian again when we have another renovation project.

Comments: Christian was very professional. He was on time and ready to go. The job entailed cutting Sheetrock and repair/ replace framing around the garage door opening to accept a new garage door. The work was top quality work and neat looking when completed. The job was completed and everything was picked up and cleaned in the estimated frame.

Comments: Christian does absolutely top quality work. He replaced my two exterior doors with skill, clearly knowledgeable about his craft, and with an incredible attention to detail. He encountered numerous challenges along the way, including completely rotted framing that, unlike previous carpenters, he actually replaced rather than mask over. The end result is a job that is not only looks great, but I have every confidence that it was done right. Christian is a true professional -- top in his class.

Comments: I hired Christian to replace decaying wood trim around my three garage doors with new PVC trim. He also installed two new doors in my garage area. He was prompt, personable, and professional. Both jobs were completed in just a few days. The work area was left super clean. Christian is a skilled and experienced one man operation. I would recommend him to anyone for their future carpentry needs.

Comments: Christian was presented with a challenge in replacing the front door to our house. He presented the problem to me and we had a discussion as to the possible fixes. When he was finished, the door was plumb and level in an otherwise crooked opening. The trim work was top notch. Christian's experience as a trim carpenter is clearly evident. He cleaned up every day and vacuum half the house. He will be my go to carpenter moving forward.

Comments: I'm not sure about how much we were charged if it was a good value or not but it was lower than other quotes we have received and it was not work we would have been able to do ourselves. Very, very satisfied with the work product.

Comments: Christian called me right away. He came to do the estimate when he said he was coming. I had an email estimate the same day. Work was scheduled 2 days later. Christian came on time, did quality work and was a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely hire Christian for all our carpentry work.

Comments: It's easy to tell when someone loves what he does. It shows in their effort and superior outcomes. Christian is a master at craft. He works with care about what he is doing and doesn't cut corners. He is professional. He keeps his appointments, is on time, gets back to his customer as expected, works with the customer to ensure the project details are understood, organized, efficient and leaves the job site every day only after cleaning up any debris. March 2018 my project: enclose 2 existing bedroom entries and refashion as closets. Create new bedroom doorway, repair hallway walls ceiling and floors affected. Start to finish 2 weeks. Completed on the target day despite weather interruptions. The attention to detail and pride of workmanship shows through. Letting go of hard earned cash is never easy but you will be glad to do so when he completes your project. Simply the best. No one else will be on my contact list for carpentry. He did in 2 weeks what no other carpenter or contractor would or could do in over a year my trying to hire. Thank you Christian! And thank you Home Advisor!

Comments: He took on a set of stairs that were built in the 1800's and did a spectacular job, so much so that I have rehired him again to come back and do my hallway. He is very,very neat, clean and prompt. I am extremely happy with him and pleased. I did not think he would be able to do the stairs and they look beautiful!

Comments: Christian was one of the best that I hired and the quote was good too. Very polite and nice guy. Will definitely hire him for future work as well.

Comments: Christian was terrific. He returned my initial call very quickly, we connected and then he followed up with me when I didn't call back. He was conscientious, diligent, prompt and provided his own ideas for doing the work, which were better than what I initially wanted. He was also very responsive to my needs on the project and it came out better than I expected. His price was very reasonable. I look forward to hiring him again and would not hesitate to recommend him. J.O.S.

Additionally, he went to great lengths to be sure the that he left the work area clean and neat before departing. In total, we are delighted with the result. We highly recommend him.
