I LOVE THIS COMPANY!

Taking on the job of being the General Contractor to build a new home from the ground up was overwhelming for me until I was referred to Paul Richardson, owner of PTR Carpentry. Right from the start, he offered to help me with advise and referrals to other trades throughout this process. Paul and his crew were always on time, respectful of myself and other trades on site and worked in harmony throughout the day. The site was always left clean and swept at the end of their day. I’m nearing the end of the construction and am still in contact with Paul. Every trade that’s worked in my house has commented on what a great job the carpenters have done, everything is built beautifully and level. I honestly don’t know if I could have come this far without Paul and his team. Their expertise and experience has been priceless. I will always recommend PTR Carpentry Inc. Thanks guys!

I am always happy to help customers whenever possible. The service that we offer goes well beyond the framing part of the project. Whether it's a referral that you need or some advice along the way, you can always find me on the end of an email, message or phone call.
If there is anything else that you need please do not hesitate to reach out, Paul.

Very professional
The whole crew worked very hard and fast.
Many good ideas, things I would never of thought of.
No short cuts taken, attention to detail was great.
On time and delivered outstanding results.
Cleaned up everything.
I would recommend Paul and his team to everyone.
You get what you pay for, I’ve learned the hard way in the past. Always hire the experts. Paul is at the top when it comes to framing.

New Build Two Storey Home in Etobicoke, Ontario

This is my second new build home with PTR Carpentry.
Excellent work, reliable crew, ahead of schedule and on budget.

Paul also acted as my project manager during excavation, forming and roofing stages of the project. He worked well with other trades, attended all building inspections.

Highly recommend Paul for his honesty, professional work ethics and will be using him again for my next project.

Our “go to team”

Paul and is team are our exclusive framing crew for all our projects. Everyone on the PTR team is very knowledgeable and always have a clean and safe sites. Paul demonstrates a scalable scope of work, from a basement interior frame- to 4000+ sqft custom houses. PTR is very fair priced, and treats your relationship more as a partner rather than sub trade or crew for higher. He’s always looking down the road of how his guys can help make it easier for the next trade to come in. When Paul and team are on site, I know I’m going to have the job done right, on time and under budget. I would and do recommend PTR to all over our friends and family you are in the need for his skillsets.

Basement Framing

I found PTR Carpentry and Paul (owner) on Homestars. He was quick to respond to my call and meet at my house to quote on the framing of my basement. I am managing the project myself and had many questions which Paul answered with ease due to experience. His price was great, work was great, workers he brought to my place were kind and respectful of my property and they left the job site very clean. A few days later, I realized a few more areas which required framing and called Paul. He sent Ryan in to take care of the extra items within a few days. I will have already recommended Paul to a neighbour of mine and will continue to refer him due to his professionalism and talent.

Framing for a New House

Paul and his team did a great job framing my new build house. They provided advice, gave me a lot of logistical support, arranged for the supply of materials and delivered a high quality job that impressed many of the subsequent subcontractors. Paul and his team were professional, personable and easy to deal with. I received feedback from my neighbours that the team was polite and courteous. I am happy that I engaged PTR for the project and recommend them highly, especially for projects where the GC is in need of a full service framer (as in my case).

New Construction Framing

After comparing quotes with several Framing companies from Home Star, we selected PTR Carpentry Inc to frame our new house in High Park which has tight space limitations posing construction challenges relating to delivery & storage of materials & equipment.

We selected PTR Carpentry based on their clear & detailed contract, reasonable price, excellent communication, and coincidentally our foundation contractor also recommended PTR as well.

Paul was extremely professional and provided a detailed quote in a reasonable time and after we signed the contract, Paul has always been quick to respond to all of my questions in a friendly and helpful manner throughout the entire engagement. The workers were friendly and professional and kept the construction site tidy.

The engagement process was smooth and we passed framing inspection with no issues on first try with the inspector & our structural engineer both complimenting on the quality & experience of the framing work.

We are extremely satisfied with PTR Carpentry and have no reservation to highly recommend this company.

Reframing of two bedrooms and laundry room

This is the fourth time that we have had been so fortunate to have been able to lean on Paul and his PTR team during our renovations of a hundred year old home. As always, his efficiency, care, and knowledge added immeasurably to the end product. Over the past six years PTR has rebuilt most of our house as we have redone the house in stages. Working with an old house is never easy, but Paul understands the challenges and is brilliant in finding solutions to problems that arise from sloping floor, sagging joists, and skewed walls. Again, as we experienced before with PTR, the quality of their work was excellent and the speed of completion truly impressive. That is an astounding combination--quality and efficiency--but comes from Paul's extensive experience, deep knowledge, and care--he meticulously plans out everything he is going to do on the job site the night before. When his team starts working they are unstoppable and the job site always highly organized and clean as his teams works with choreographed precision. We are so grateful to have had been able to work with a company so professional at every level and feel blessed to now live in a house PRT rebuilt--knowing that in a hundred years from now it will still be standing without any sloping, sagging, or skewing. All I can say for someone looking for a professional framer, may you have the same wonderful opportunity.
