Recent Review: I want to say that I'm hesitant to provide Conrad and his team with a great review. You might say that I'm selfish in that I don't want him to be so busy that I have a hard time booking him for his next project!! That said, I know how hard it can be to find responsive and professional quality carpenters and I'm sure you feel the same. I will attest that McGrath Carpentry meets these criteria and then some. So, as far as I'm concerned, there is no need to look any further if want the job done right. Our house is like many others in Maine. Old, drafty, and has a huge thirst for oil. We opted to call Conrad for a bid on the items mentioned above. First and foremost, we wanted to button-up our house to make it more comfortable (this is unfortunate news for the Dead River Oil Company because this is probably going to result in downsizing). Additionally, we wanted to replace the worn out look that the house previously had (the pressed cardboard siding was deteriorating and the and quot;roll-onand quot; roof was pretty ugly). Anyway, over the course of the just over a month long installation process we had regular meetings with Conrad to ensure that everything was being installed correctly and was up to specification. Like many homeowners, the more construction work you do on your place the more bad stuff you find beneath the surface (such as fire damage, lack of insulation, tar paper in certain places) that end up resulting in additional decision points and budget action items. But we resolved these issues one step at a time and ended up with a quality product. Conrad also kept us up to speed on our budget so that we didn't break the bank too badly. Ultimately this resulted in us not being able to finish everything we wanted to (such as porch steps, and trim in certain places) but we hit all of the major areas and can easily come back to finish some of these additional items over time. I think the most memorable moment was when Conrad and his team were trying to install insulation/roofing/siding on the back corner of the house that had a hornet's nest in the siding (we discovered it just before the project started). While we were in the process of having a pest removal company remove the next, Conrad and his staff continued to work as best they could in the area. Let's say that the hornets weren't very pleased with the renovations. Thankfully no one was stung too badly! We're glad we called McGrath Carpentry for our project. They really restored our old farmhouse back to it's original glory! I wouldn't hesitate to give him a call if you have any exterior/interior renovations you want to have done in your home.
