David came out to review the work that I was unhappy about. He told me that I bought the wrong size attic staircase and gave me a recommendation. What concern me was that his workers went ahead and installed the wrong attic staircase without informing me that I should get a different one. Once installed, it looked terrible. It was difficult to open and was wobbly. I went out and bought the recommended attic staircase and David had his workers return. It was installed properly and looks fine.

The old basement staircase in one of my rentals had given way and I called Andrew. Since it was an emergency, he was able to squeeze me into his schedule and the stairs are now solid and safe.

Dave was recommended to us by Cox Hardwood Flooring. Cox refinished some of our floors and installed new oak flooring in other areas. They indicated they do not replace old stair treads and recommended Dave. He came out quickly after our initial phone contact, gave us an estimate and did an excellent job. He replaced our 100 year old stairs with new oak treads and trim, which we will stain to match the floors, and he also replaced all other old wood on the staircase as necessary. We would highly recommend Dave and we will not hesitate to use him in the future for any other interior carpentry we might need.

I learned very quickly that if I wanted something done right (even the first time!) that I had hired the right individual. Before rebuilding the staircase, Regi leveled the floor (via a very small crawl space). The staircase and all subsequent projects have gone beautifully. He did one room of hardwood floors and, from watching him, I learned the skill and put down the remaining floors. The current project is perfect (the re-roofing of the garage). The garage is a very old structure and he put a lot of prep work into leveling the roof structure and putting down new ply board before putting on the shingles. He will be the one I hire to reconstruct the upstairs of my old home, which will become a master bedroom and bath, along with a reading room at the top of the stairs.

It went beautifully!! Dave showed up at the exact time he said he would each day, and went right to work. After tearing out the old carpeting, and removing old treads and risers, he hauled it out into his truck. He did a wonderful job rebuilding the steps, and cleaned up after himself each day; vacuum-sweeping and wiping down floors which left them spotless! He was careful and respectful of my home, and he had a great personality! I would highly recommend him for any carpentry work!! I also met him at a building supply store to pick out my new handrails. He was there before me, and I appreciated that he was on time there too. If you want a great job, done right, by someone who cares, CALL DAVE LEFEVERS! He does the work himself and you can tell that he knows what he is doing. My old steps squeeked terribly, but not my new steps ~ not one squeek!! As you can tell; my husband and I are very happy with Dave's work :) :)

From the first time I called Dave to get an estimate on doing this project to his call checking up on the handrail he installed on the outside steps, this was a great project. My 97 year old mother lives with my family and I needed a second set of handrails installed on the right side of the staircase as well as around the newell post of the staircase so my mother has something to hold onto when getting up the stairs. We already had handrails on the left side of each flight of stairs that we had installed awhile ago but they were not the right type of railing and had proved to be unstable. When i called Dave for an estimate he was on vacation but asked if he could call me back when he got home. He did exactly that, came for an estimate as scheduled, and knew exactly what I wanted done. We agreed on the cost and he committed to coming back and doing the work the following Monday. He arrived as promised but due to a stomach virus he had gotten from his grandson, he asked if it was okay that he started work the following day. He arrived the next day promptly at 8:00 and worked steady until finished with installing the handrails. They look great, even unfinished and best yet, they make it much easier for my mother to get up and down the stairs! Dave came back a few days later and installed the railing on the outside stairs and nailed down all the treads on our interior stairs. He generally does not do exterior work but he agreed to install the railing so it was easier for my mother to get up and down the front stairs. It looks great and it is wonderful to have for my mother's use and safety Dave is great to work with, professional in his dealings with us, prompt and timely in his communications,scheduling, and arriving to work. He is extremely attentive to all the details homeowners look for in a good contractor such as quality, cleanliness and fairness. Dave is an excellent carpenter and craftsman. We appreciated that he regularly checked with us throughout the project to ensure we were satisfied with what he was planning on doing. Both my husband and I enjoyed working with Dave and wouldn't hesitate to have him into our home to complete another carpentry project.

Crew rebuilt a staircase that was tricky to maneuver due to uneven risers/treads & poor support beams but what they built was more difficult to maneuver than the original. We spoke with Eric and he agreed to fix the work - but the rework was not much better than the original. While we were happy to have Crew respond so quickly to our concerns, we were still not satisfied with the final product -not much different than what we started w/ plus the carpentry work was poor (uneven cuts, screws not pre-drilled so now many boards are splitting, etc). We now see that this was a tricky project, but really wish they would have consulted with us & shared their concerns before moving forward. We would not have taken on this project if we would have realized that we d be spending this $$ to get something only slightly better. Crew likely took a hit on the time/mat. that it cost for re-work, but we still feel like we paid too much for the final product, given the quality of the design/workmanship.

Steve called when he was on his way and arrived at my house on time. He and his helper looked at what needed to be done, made a materials list, and then left for the home improvement store. About forty five minutes later they returned with materials. Steve's helper went to work tearing out the old stairs while Steve began measuring and cutting the new lumber into steps. Although he was working with an existing structure, Steve didn't have any problem in working with everything being a little out of square. He made everything fit and look good. Neither men took breaks while they were at my house. They didn't make or receive a bunch of cell phone calls. They actually wanted to get the job done so they could move on to another. When they finished, both men cleaned up, swept, and hauled away all debris. My staircase is now attractive, sturdy, and ready for winter.
