Woodworking reviews in Saint Paul
The second job was to rip out carpeted stairs and install new railings/balusters in a completely different style. The final product looks amazing- we get lots of compliments on the gorgeous stairs and craftsman-style spindles and railings. This was no "kit" project that simply involved picking up factory pieces from a big box store and putting them together. Rather it was a custom design and beautifully executed. The design inspiration was our
There were some nail pops in the sheetrock but that's a risk with any renovation project-- and they were easily repaired. If getting your job done quickly is a priority, you should be very clear about that when you get bids and expect to have some tradeoffs for speed-- With the stair project, we had some delays that couldn't be helped due the winter weather, illness, structural surprises that pop up in a 1939 home, etc but it was well worth the wait. (The structural surprise was that our stairs turned out to be missing a stringer under the treads, so that was a slight cost increase above the original bid, but a very reasonable one.) We could have gone a cheaper, quicker route by having a bigger company send in a whirlwind crew to simply install a premade stair kit but then we would have average humdrum stairs that look like everyone else's. My dad is an old-school carpenter and he was impressed with their work, too. I would enthusiastically recommend them for any project where your top priority is quality of design and execution.
While merchant, to be fair, provided excellent assistance in designing the Ikea kitchen and accompanied us there to help shop and order, and did a good job with an on schedule installation, problems arose in terms of his standing behind his work and following through on commitments that he had made. He had actually volunteered to come back to help us replace two drawer fronts that were defective, once we purchased the necessary replacements. That was back in November 2013. Despite multiple phone calls + emails, and promises "to come when I get a
We would have been very happy to pay his fee if the work would have been provided in a timely way. We were also uncomfortable that he threw some items in our dumpster that he knew where not supposed to be placed there according to the contract with the dumpster provider (and covered them). That is not professional.
Used great quality materials and helped me to pick things that went well with everything else. Chose some very interesting woods for the cupboards in the kitchen...and had the cupboards custom made.
When they built the garage, again, it all came together just as he said it would. They worked on it until it was done and worked very hard to make sure water issues would be addressed.
I highly recommend this builder. The owner really has an eye for construction and knows how to do things right the first time.
If you want quality work, this is the contractor for you.

I was impressed with the transparency of the contract and the meticulous documentation of modifications to the project's scope as we went along. I had access to the precise cost of each component of the renovation. This was a refreshing contrast to a past experience with another contractor (different house), where costs seemed
