Woodworking reviews in Providence


This was a large upmarket residential renovation totaling well over $100,000. The general contractor,
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job. The project took approximately 4 months from start to finish. It was directly managed by company owner
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
. This man was extremely detail and quality oriented and his expert crew worked hard to meet his (and our) expectations to make sure every aspect of the project was done right. If, on the rare occasion it wasn't done right, it was done over. We provided most of the design and high-end finish materials on the interior, while
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
provided all of the labor and structural materials necessary. This arrangement worked well for both of us. Other than holidays and weekends the crew showed up virtually every workday for 4 months straight. Unbelievable! We are not new to home renovation and have seen the good, the bad and the ugly of the general contracting world. We were prepared to struggle with such a large renovation, but
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
came thru as one of the most professional operations I have ever observed. When the rare problem came up, it always came with a solution attached. Since we were living in the house with 3 noisy dogs during the entire project, consideration on everybody's part was essential. The crew almost always took adequate time out at the end of each work day to clean up the site understanding it was somebody's home. My experience has not always been good in this regard. Since time is money in the contracting world, the daily clean-up often gets the short shrift. Not with this company. The only part of the huge project not done by
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was the new heating system, otherwise he did everything necessary to take a very dated and worn 1972 colonial (needing EVERYTHING) and make its interior shine like 2014. We could have hired a less expensive contractor (be aware
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
is not the cheap seats), and some of the extras were a little more expensive than expected. But value is always the intersection of price and quality. In this case, we achieved the highest value we could have ever expected. Thank you Angie's List!!

They did a great job. Always on time.
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was always in contact. When it turned out we needed more work done,
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
gave us a reasonable estimate.
The project became much costlier than we expected but that was due to
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
's commitment to doing the work right.
I highly recommend.

Work began in early summer. It started with the siding and progressed steadily. The workers were exceedingly prompt, neat, safety conscious and very courteous. Then the work on the cornice began with the same work ethic. The porch followed and again the workers showed pride in their work, kept us informed of any concerns and/or delays and were very accommodating to our traffic patterns. The porch looks absolutely beautiful with mahogany decking and banister trim. The interior work coincided with the porch work and involved rolling carpets. Each evening the carpets would be unrolled after a thorough vacuuming was done. Constant attention was made to disrupt normal household routines as little as possible.
The general contractor,

, oversaw the job regularly, was available easily by phone, offered general and specific advice and made us feel the pride he took in this work. His suggestions were always helpful and right on target. It was a pleasure working with him.

Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
is fantastic. He was on time, on schedule, and on budget. He checked in regularly, went above and beyond what was expected, and delivered a great finished project. His crew was polite, non invasive, and kept a very clean worksite. He worked on our house for 8 weeks total, with probably 5-10 days lost to rain. They would normally be at our house from 8am until 6pm or so, and then on Saturdays from 9-5, although there were definitely days where they were working until closer to 8pm to try and get something finished up. Most of the time it was just
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and 1 or 2 other guys, but a few times he had a larger crew on site (like during the actual painting). Progress came along steadily, and he was always in touch with updates. He is very friendly and chatty, and very easy to get along with. I really can't say enough good things about him and his work. We were actually sad to see him go. I would happily recommend him to friends or family.

I found out about
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
via a "Big Deal" via Angie's List. I contacted
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
shortly after getting the deal, and we discussed what I needed to get done. He's easy to work with and responds to your call/emails. He did a great job installing the baseboard, and fabricating custom pieces to trim out a window in my kitchen, even running out to pick up supplies when I bought the wrong size material. I highly recommend
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and would use him again.

It went very well overall.
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
is a meticulous worker. He usually works by himself on smaller projects and wants to get it done right. The whole process took about 2 weeks. He offered his advice when I asked for it, compared notes on what I liked and wanted, and was able to find less expensive products of the same things I found in store--often of greater quality. It took a little bit longer than some contractors but he got it done right for a great price. He was honest and clear about his work and his charges were fantastic comparatively.
- Chase S.

Herb was punctual and everything went smoothly, start to finish. We appreciated his attentiveness to detail. He walked us through the entire process and we are very happy with the results. We will not hesitate to contact Herb again.

Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
surpassed all my expectations. I had a very small budget, and he was very patient with my need to do some of the work to save money and my delay in being able to buy the tile. He kept his good nature when I changed the shower fixture after he'd already plumbed for the first one (it was a completely different kind and required a different plumb), and also when I changed the toilet after he'd already installed the first one. He helped me out in other ways too-- I probably can't even remember them all. One example: I had a
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to get an almost new washer/dryer from craigslist at a great price but didn't have a truck or any manpower to help and it was a now or never deal. For $50 bucks,
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
drove me to get the appliances, loaded them in his pickup, brought them to my duplex, trucked them into the basement and hooked them both up for me. This in the middle of my tile install. He has shown a remarkable willingness to shift gears quickly and affably.

I can only hope he'll be around to be my handyman forever. I've hired many, many contractors over the years, have fired a few too, wanted to fire even more but didn't dare because I'd learned the downside of that, and the truth is that I am not at all easily satisfied.

This time I have to say I couldn't be more satisfied. Thanks

Originally purchased home as foreclosure, the previous owner performed lots of poorly done work that needed to be removed and redone. Joyvanni restored the dinign room for free and I liked it so I had him do the rest of the house. A picture is worth 1000 words so I'll upload some pics.

While we were unfortunately not able to hire

-- the scope of the project changed significantly, through no fault of his own -- I was completely, positively impressed by his courtesy, responsiveness, professionalism, and punctuality.
