was patient in listening to my needs, wants and desires. He provided detailed estimates for his suggested work and then responded to my revisions in a timely fashion. The work was scheduled and completed on time, or early in the case of our basement storage room to our satisfaction.
's team completed the work and they were courteous, clean and professional.
followed up as the work was being completed and stopped personally to check and make sure we were happy. I believe you get what you pay for and in this case,
's service in addition to the work added up to a great value. I would highly recommend

Woodworking reviews in River Forest


We first contacted
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to make two windows for the attic of our 1919 home. We had numerous opinions and expensive quotes on building these two new odd shaped windows. I found
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
on Angie's List and sent him (along with a few others) a detailed description of what needed to be done. He was quick to reply, set an appointment and presented us with an extremely good bid, $400. It took several weeks for
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to begin the job because he already had committed to a job out of town. But, upon his return, as he promised, he came and took the old windows out and within 48 hours two new windows were in. They fit great and look great. We were so happy that we have since hired
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to build a shelf in a closet, install bathroom hardware. One of the light fixtures was not the right size for the area. Once he realized it, he called me at work and discussed the issue with me. He takes pride in what he does and does an excellent job of keeping you informed of the progress.

Colm is a gifted carpenter with a wonderful combination of skill, common sense, precision, and humanity. My wife and I so enjoy his presence, as well as appreciate the quality of his workmanship, that we cannot conceive of using another carpenter, whether for rough or finish work.

I contracted Premier in the middle of December,
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
suggested a couple different vendors where I could purchase plumbing fixtures & tiles since I am not a hardware type person. He told me exactly what I needed to buy. I purchased everything and he picked it up. He furnished all green board,

rock, mortar. They changed all my water lines to copper.

was extremely professional he informed me of every detail. It was great. The project went exactly how Premier said it would. I was really impressed. My bathroom is gorgeous. His workers were very professional the showed up when they said they would & they cleaned up daily. My cabinets which I purchased from KDA were installed perfectly. The carpenters cuts on the crown molding and baseboard perfect. No caulking! GREAT JOB. I would refer this company to anyone. THANK YOU ANGIE'S LIST

Excellent experience from start to finish. Friendly and professional from the first estimate, to making changes as the work progressed. Did everything we asked, and we are very pleased with how the work improved the overall look of our home. We have received lots of compliments!

did a beautiful job on my pocket door. The work was perfect - nice design, beautifully fitted woodwork, painted to match the existing walls. He is much in demand, so I had to wait a bit before he was able to start, and the price he quoted was a little higher than I was hoping to spend, but I would definitely hire him again.

(foreman) and his crew were wonderful. They arrived every morning between 7-7:30am and got right to work. They didn't have loud music or talk much... just got right down to business. They did a fabulous job of scraping away old paint and primed those areas. They then used three different colors of paint to paint the house using

paint. We opted for the one-coat option which turned out really well. We have all sorts of detailed molding near the roofline and
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was precise and the house looks wonderful. The quality of workmanship was top-notch and I was very pleased. They also did some carpentry work replacing rotted planks. There was some confusion on who would supply the wood so it took longer (carpenter had to wait until someone brought the wood) than I anticipated to complete that aspect of work. In retrospect I should have clarified that first so we could have proceeded more quickly. I had three other quotes to do the work; two a bit more expensive and one a lot less. I think they were the right choice. I certainly felt that I received a quality product for what I paid for and the service was excellent. Everyone from
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to the foreman to
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
(president) who provided the quote were professional and personable. I would definitely recommend using them and hope to have them back when we paint the interior of the home.

Two workmen arrived on time and went straight to work. The shutters look great. The workers even cleaned up some vine that was extending into the gutter. Very friendly, hard-working men.

and his crew were great. We received a competitive, detailed estimate, and the work started and finished reasonably close to the timeline estimated. Throughout the process, the crew was courteous an respectful of our
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and children who were home all day, cleaning up after themselves each day. The couple of minor issues that inevitably arise in these rehabs were addressed promptly once I brought them to
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
's attention, which is the ultimate show of professionalism.
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was also flexible with a few small design/work changes and didn't nickel and dime us for them which I very much appreciated.
Things were going so well with the bathrooms that I asked
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to bid on installing some wainscoting for a hallway and chair rails in the dining room, and also on installing some wood floors in a foyer. We used a different guy for the floors, but did use
River Forest Carpenters Provider Name Locked
's carpenter for the wainscot and rails. The guy was totally old school and obviously knew what he was doing, cutting the boards on site and installing them all in one day. He was very proud, and made sure to point out his quality craftsmanship. We get tons of compliments on the wainscot, which an appraiser recently thought was original to our 85 yr-old house!
We have another bath that needs updating, and J &K will be the first call to bid.
