I called
and left a message - he got back to me the next day. I had to wait a few days for him to actually complete the work because he's busy - not necessarily a bad thing.
I wasn't at the house, but based on text messages, he spent 3-4 hours working - and, as stated, some work was under the house. Because of that, I. couldn't check out 2 items, but the 2 jobs that were above ground looked fine.

We hired
because we own an older home, and knew that the Goves had done historical restoration work in Old Wethersfield, plus, friends there had recommended them. After talking to
, I became convinced that the Goves were the right ones for the job because they would be meticulous about preserving the period style and materials to the extent possible, and they would also be scrupulous about making sure all the work was up to code.
were extremely conscientious about supervising and doing the work personally, keeping us informed as to what they were doing, and alerting us to any potential problems that might crop up. It was difficult to coordinate the work of all the subcontractors especially since their respective parts of the job had to be done in a certain order. All of the work was done with admirable precision and care. The plumber was especially good, maybe the best I have ever seen. I especially liked that there was no swearing, no foul talk, no loud radios, no barechested sweaty guys. The entire crew was polite and professional. In fact, I had to spend many days at home preparing lessons and correcting papers, and the work never interfered with my own work, though with just about any other contractor, it would have been a major distraction.
is "the civilized contractor."
was ingenious about finding parts and fixtures that would preserve the period style, such as door knobs, handles, or stops, and molding salvaged from what had been dismantled. I was particularly impressed that when the job was done, and I had trouble with the dryer not venting,
came over personally to take a look, even though it was unlikely that his part of the work was at fault; rather, it was almost certainly a problem with the appliance itself, which had been modified by service providers from the department store that sold us the dryer so that it would vent out the side instead of the back. Indeed it was the dryer, but
found the problem and showed me how to fix it, even though the appliance itself was not his responsibility, and furthermore he charged me nothing for the visit. It is true that
costs a bit more, but in the long run, you will probably save money because the work will not have to be done again, as is often the case with mediocre contractors who are, moreover, often careless about making sure their work is up to code, causing problems later on. But
was great working with the city inspector, and kept him informed the entire time, so that the final inspection went off without a hitch. The new room is so beautifully done, and so much in conformity with the historical style of the house, that I have trouble remembering what it looked like before the renovation. It is true that the work ended up costing more than originally estimated, but that was because we ourselves made changes three times to the original order, asking additional work to be done. That, and some special circumstances such as delays in delivery of the custom-made double doors on which all the other work depended, did cause the job to take longer than anticipated, but I will gladly trade a few delays to get work done as splendidly as they did it. The Goves truly take pride in the quality of the work they do, and are impatient with sloppy craftsmanship. It is not just carpentry, but art!

I put the job out to bid to 3 contractors.

estimated the labor. He did not use allowances for the fixtures in his estimates instead saying that I should select what I wanted and control that cost. (I liked that as the other contractors' allowances were not transparent.)

buys the fixtures using his discount. So together we created the final estimate. He asked that I select all the fixtures and the materials all be ready before he started work so that the project could be as short as possible. The final cost was close to original estimate. Most of the increase came from selection of fixtures. The labor increases were all understandable—some from the tile “matching” process and some from the electrical repairs.

I was introduced to

’s subcontractors were excellent and they were very nice folks. The tile installer was very meticulous and “matched” the grain of the pattern in the tile as I asked him. Everyone came as scheduled. The work proceeded straight through until we hit a snag with the granite. The granite guy cut the granite without allowing us to

found a new granite supplier within 2 days and we started over on the granite at no extra cost to me. If we had not had this interruption the work would have been completed in about 4 weeks.

All workers came when they were scheduled. Since I work from home they honored my request to be quiet. Dropcloths were put down to cover the floors to the bathroom and each day they were taken up and the path was swept clean. In the entire project I never heard one curse word from anyone.

-cross beams for our kitchen ceiling. He came right out and took all the needed measurements. Within two days he was on-site with all the materials and completed the installation that day. It looks great! He is a fantastic master carpenter/builder and has three associate degrees in Applied Science (Carpentry, Cabinetry and Building construction technology). As a U.S. Navy veteran, he always provides discounts for veterans.

I uncovered a weakness in the framing design of my old house that needed to be addressed.

We wanted to build a mudroom with bench and shelves for our children. We considered purchasing the bench and shelves separately and putting them up ourselves. In the end, we decided to go with Mr

despite the higher price. We were not disappointed.
In two days, Mr

built a fantastic mudroom that transformed our entryway. One of the challenges in the project was that the wall had a radiator vent right in the middle but that was handled masterfully with a removable grill. Overall we are very pleased with the result.

Hancock Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was amazing. He responded to our request for a consultation within 24 hours. Provided us with better and less expensive alternative to our original ideas and carried out the plan flawlessly. He called us with the bid for the work the same day we had the consultation and completed the work that week. He not only did the work he bid but did his best to correct errors that previous contractors made on our woodwork that would impact the final product of his work.

displayed extraordinary professionalism. We will definitely be hiring him again.
