Saint Louis Carpenters Reviews

"We were very disappointed by the overall workmanship of this company. We had used them 10 years ago to remodel the kitchen with no issues but this time we were disappointed by the work. We bought a new tub and they added a water jet control to the foot of the tub rather than within reach when sitting in the tub. The hole to move the control had to be removed and patched. They sent out a company to repair the tub but rushed the job and added plumbing before the surface was ready and ended up cracking the tub when they added the faucets and handles for the tub. We had to call them back out to again repair the crack. When the plumbing was added for the tub they cut away the tub supports to make room for the plumbing - they did not fix this - they covered it up with the onyx that surrounded the tub instead. They told me that the supprt for the tub was placed underneath the tub - but we could see allthe way to the other wall with no support being added. They sent out one guy to do the work when clearly carrying the tub, bathroom cabinet fixtures, etc. would take 2 people. My husband actually helped the contractor with carrying the stuff in the house. We priced the fixtures, tub, toilet and Onyx shower with another company and found that the

up was twice the cost of what we would have paid if we would have picked it out at another company - they matched some of the prices when we brought it to their attention. Their explantaion on this was that if they weren't installing it the fixtures they would have charged us less. The doorways that they put in were split and then repaired with wood putty- they weren't a very high quality product and required us to add more wood putty and then sand them ourselves to get a smooth finish. We also have plaster walls and the finish that they leftwqas just flat drywall. They suggested that we add sand to the paint to try and match our other walls as a solution. The onyx around the tub is not
level where the corners come together - their explanation was that in an older home they can't promise that this would be level. The drywall around the inside of the window was poorly done- really noticeable after we painted it.

"Mr.
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was given a list of many things I needed fixed around my house. He took the list and that was the end of my driections. He explored the best prices for items needed, purchased the necessary items and completed the projects. He washed the siding on my house, cleaned the patio and fence and stained all the exposed wood. He hand brushed the stain and everything looked like new. He painted the post for my mailbox. Painted an exterior and interior door. He firgured out the cause and fixed the rattling of my garage door. He completed lancscaping projects which included the rebuilding of a stone structure and working an area in my yard that refused to grow grass and laid sod. I have use Mr.
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
several times over the years including the remodeling of my business offices and there is very little he can't do. I would recommend him and have recommended him highly to everyone who has needed this type of service.

"I am very glad I went with
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
recommendation about the posts. His work was excellent and he kept me informed all along the way. He not only replaced the old posts, he built the new ones with a finished base collar and a top detail that really added to the finished look of my porch. I was a little concerned about the top detail initially, since I worried that birds would build nests there as I have problems with birds nesting under the ceiling area of the front porch. But
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and I came to a solution that addressed all my concerns and still gave the top detail on the posts a very good look. This required some extra work by
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
, and added a little to the cost. I appreciated that
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
listened to my concerns, and talked with me so we could come to an agreement that turned out to be more than satisfactory. Also, I was really impressed with how thoroughly
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
cleaned up the work area each day. The painting also was done in an excellent fashion, and all work was completed in the timeframe estimated.
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was friendly and professional, as was the painter

Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
also presented good ideas for other work that I have been considering. I will definitely call

for any future work.

"This was the third time I hired a
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
in connection with getting my former home ready for sale.I wanted to advertise my home as having a city occupancy permit as a selling point for prospective buyers. A city building inspector found two defects that needed to be corrected to get the occupancy permit. I needed a railing for the stairs to the second floor. That was the easy one. The difficult one was the replacing of a missing wall under my kitchen sink. Over ten years ago a plumbing company had knocked out the wall under the sink to make it easy run new pipes from the basement to the sink. I was replacing all of my plumbing at the time. I did not think anything of it at the time because it was not visible. It turns out this was a major violation. The inspector said that most fires start in basements. The lack of a wall would allow smoke to travel easily to the rest of the house. To put in the wall under the sink would require the installer to work through small doors under the sink and past the existing plumbing. Or, tear out the sink to do it easily and install a new sink. That would require tearing out the paneling around the sink and since that matched the paneling going around the entire kitchen, all the paneling in the kitchen would have to be replaced. This I did not want to do.
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
did a fantastic job of working through the small doors on the front of the sink, around the pipes and filling in the wall piece by piece. He saved me from expensive remodeling. The reinspection resulted in the occupancy permit which helped to sell the house quickly.

"We were incredibly pleased with the work performed by
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
. They were easy to work with from our early planning stages to the completion of the job. They coordinated with the subcontractors for painting and electrical, and were very easy to work with. When you're going through a major remodel in a home that you're still living in, life changes while the work is being completed. The guys at
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
made this as painless as possible. They cleaned up each night before leaving. They put up plastic barriers to reduce the spread of dust, etc. to other parts of the house. Somehow, despite gutting the kitchen, they managed to keep our
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and refrigerator plugged in and operable throughout the process. We ended up adding a few things to their overall project, and they were accommodating and basically stayed on schedule despite the extra work. For example, we realized that while we were having the ceiling repainted, our 1980-era skylights were actually leaking and would ruin the repainting that was being done.
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
quickly provided a quote for also replacing the skylights, went and picked up new, insulated skylights and it was completed right away. They listened closely to our goals and wishes, but weren't afraid to steer us in the right direction as the experts in this area. As a result, the end product was everything we had hoped for and more! We couldn't be any happier with our experience with
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked

also caulked and painted the entire doorway area. A very professional guy and we will use him again for future jobs.

"Our experience with
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and Wood Works consists only of an enormously unprofessional interaction during a bid. The company consists of a husband and wife duo,
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
, who we learned about through word of mouth and an article on the online Woodworking Network. They seem to be very well respected for their craft, which is what we were looking for on our stair project. What we quickly learned is that they are highly unprofessional, condescending, and aggressive.
The first sign that things might be off began when my wife called to schedule the bid. My wife found
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to be rude and condescending -- without knowing anything about us,
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
suggested that we were a naive young couple that had no idea what we were getting into with a historic rehab. That may have been the case eight years ago, but we are on the home stretch of a nearly full gut rehab, and we have done the vast majority of the work ourselves. Nonetheless, we were excited to have them come bid our project because they seem to be talented. We figured that talent sometimes comes with eccentricity, which we can handle in stride.
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
came to our house to bid the stair project (one new stair and one restoration) on 10/19/13. Although they still had an
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
of condescension and bickered with one another like an old married couple, which they are, the bid visit was pretty normal until
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
asked me about my work. I told him where I worked. He further pried asking what I do. I shared that I work in sustainability and said nothing more. I make a point of not being preachy about the work that I do because I know how politicized aspects of sustainability have become. Without skipping a beat,
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
asked if I said "disdainability." I laughed it off and kept the focus on the stairs. They then asked my wife what she does. When she shared that she works in public health they rolled their eyes and chuckled in an odd way. Not wanting to read into their reactions, we kept the focus on the topic at hand: stairs, banisters, and spindles.
Without any provocation from me,
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
asked if I believed that global warming was caused by human activity while making
clear that he did not believe so. Taken aback that a contractor would be starting a political debate while bidding a project, I responded that yes I do and so does 97% of the climate science community (NASA's Climate Change website has extensive documentation on this topic). Nonetheless, I told
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
I had no interest in having the discussion and unambiguously told him I wanted to stay focused on the stairs. He persisted and essentially asked me to prove 30 years of climate science to him on the spot. We invited them to our house to bid a project, not to have a debate and certainly not scoff at our careers and question the fundamentals of our work or our knowledge. At this point, both my wife and I were again clear that we wanted to keep our relationship professional and not discuss the topic
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was now pushing on us.
Regardless of your perspective on this particular topic, I hope you will agree that contentious topics (religion, politics, etc.) have no place in professional interactions.
At this point,
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
had the good sense to head towards the door and call to
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
that it was time to go. Like a fixated zealot,
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
persisted on the topic despite our many requests to focus on stairs and continued asking me to prove that climate change is real and caused by human activity. At this point, I began to herd
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
towards the door and told him that I had a feeling based on our conversation thus far that there is nothing I could do to change his mind. Now at the front door, but still inside the house,
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
got right up in my face and accused me of calling him stupid, when I simply said that I did not think I could change his mind. With
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
still inside my house, getting closer to my face and continuing to accuse me of calling him stupid, I somehow managed to herd him over the threshold, told him to forget the job, and slammed the door in a cloud of disbelief at what had just unfolded.
In my career and throughout my 8-year home rehab, I am certain that I have worked with many people who have different perspectives and beliefs than I. We all do every day. Yet, the vast majority of the time, all of us in the work force have the professionalism to focus on our commonalities and forge strong, productive, and often wonderful working relationships despite the differences that exist.
The antagonism and lack of professionalism we experienced with
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
of
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and Wood Works is unparalleled in my working life. It felt like
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
came to my house to pick a fight, not bid a job. Despite our repeated attempts to direct the conversation back to the bid,
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
seemed intent on insulting us and starting a conflict. No one, regardless how skilled, has any right to treat clients or prospective clients the way
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and
Saint Louis Carpenters Provider Name Locked
treated my wife and I.
We are fortunate to live in a world full of skilled people. We strongly encourage you to avoid this company and give your business to talented folks who will treat you with the basic level of respect that we all deserve.
