Scott (Evanston, Il) Thomas re-did our staircases. The finished product is beyond our wildest dreams. They are unique and gorgeous. Thomas is not only an outstanding carpenter but is an artist. It is so nice to work with someone who truly takes pride in his work. He took care of our house during the construction as if it was his own house -- at the end of every day the house was spotless. Everything was done precisely and you can tell from the finished product that he didn't take any short cuts. He even worked over the weekend and holiday because we were staying in a hotel with our young daughter. I cannot sing enough of his praises and would highly recommend him to anyone.
Brandy (Chicago) We had an ugly fireplace surround that needed replacing. We provided Carpentry+You with a picture of a fireplace mantel and asked to recreate it in an effort to give our tiny (gas/wood burning) fireplace a make over so that it went from an embarrassment to show piece. The mantel we wanted was very elaborate and not something that could be bought off the shelf. He came out and measured and provided us an estimate while also providing recommendations for the hearth. Our mantel is a work of art. The material is the highest quality, the detail is impeccable (difficult to describe) but spot on. Thomas is passionate about what he does and it shows.
Karen (Glencoe, Il) Carpentry+You, built the most beautiful mantle for our new fireplace. He was excellent to work with in both helping us through the design process and delivering on time. He was meticulous with every detail and showed a passion for ensuring we were happy with the the final product. The quality of the craftsmanship and the attention to its installation were unlike any I've seen. I've already referred Thomas to multiple friends and would continue to do so. I highly, highly recommend Carpentry + You for any custom carpentry needs. We have continued to use them for other projects as well.
Jill (Park Ridge, Il) Carpentry+You, installed crown molding and wainscoting in my dining room. The whole project went great. Thomas is a true craftsman and committed to his work. I was referred by a friend and am so glad. His attention to detail on both the molding and wainscoting were incredible. Throughout the process, Thomas was able to make suggestions to the design that really made a difference in the outcome. The project was completed in 2 days. Thomas was neat and very thorough in his clean up when he left. Most of my house does NOT have crown molding but after this experience I am now hooked and will definitely have Thomas come back again as I work on the rest of my rooms. Even my painter commented on Thomas's work and attention to detail when he came to paint.
Travis (Wauconda, Il) I had Carpentry+You to give me a quote and once we came to an agreement, work started a few days later. You can tell that Thomas takes very great pride in his work and really loves what he does. The materials he uses are great and very high quality. It took a few days to install the new trim work, took the time to make everything perfect and to sand each miter. Thomas was always on time and did a great job keeping dust confined and cleaning up every day. The room now looks beautiful! It has really added much character to the room and gives it a more elegant feel. I will be using Thomas for my next project!
Mitch (Northbrook, Il) We hired Carpentry+You to do some upgrades to the home we recently purchased. He was very profession in his initial meeting and consultation with us. He has an eye for high quality and luxury designs. Thomas made several recommendations on how we'd what i thought was an "OK" entryway and create a luxurious entrance to our home. He completed a beautiful wainscoting and crown molding in our entryway and dining room. He upgraded/installed stair balusters to a wonderful antigue bronze finish. We also have a second-phase project planned as we install built-in's in our family room and completely redesign our mudroom with build-ins and storage cubbies. The craftsmanship is second to none. If you want high-end carpentry, design, and superb delivery, then Thomas is the person to hire.
