New deck build

Our deck was built at the same time as our house, in 1994. 26 years ago. We noticed a slight lean on one corner of our 12x12 deck. I took a shovel and dug down to check the 4x4 corner post. It was rotting under the ground surface as the original deck builder didn’t use concrete forms. The deck was not safe!
Time for a new deck.
We did our research on Homestars and reviewed many contractors. Time after time we noticed fantastic reviews about PTR Carpentry Inc. My wife and I were hoping PTR would be able to do our deck project even though we live an hour north of Toronto.
We sent Paul, the owner, a detailed description of our old deck and what we would like for a new deck. We wanted a much larger deck for entertaining and relaxing.
We received a confirmation email back from Paul abd he said he would review our timeline, our allotted budget and his upcoming schedule. I mentioned that I would demolish the old deck and get the deck post holes dug and poured with concrete, if he could fit us in.
Paul called my number and told me he wanted to alter our deck plans to make it a deck to be proud of. Instead of one large, 16x28 foot deck, Paul drew up a schematic for a 2 tier deck! The upper deck from the patio doors would have an area for a bbq, a table for 6 to eat at, plus a deck box to house the chair cushions. The lower tier would be 1 step down and have plenty of room for a lounge, entertaining area. Gravity chairs, cantilever umbrella plus a propane fire bowl for evening fires. All on the same original 16x28 foot print!
We budgeted $9000 and his quote was well under that. We hired him.
Paul ordered all the lumber and necessary materials. It was delivered a few days before the big build. Paul and his employee, Steve, arrived at 7:30am Saturday morning. His large van had every tool you could think of for building and renovations.
They worked all day and had lunch and dinner at our house. They didn’t take off for hours at a time. They had a job to do and were totally professional the entire time. Extreme polite to my wife and 2 kids plus Paul answered every question, no matter how silly it may seem. Paul made us feel so comfortable and we relaxed after a few chats.
They called it a day at 7pm and left for home. The entire area was left clean and tidy. No nails, screws or scrap wood all over the yard. This was important because we own 2 small dogs that love the backyard. No issues at all.
Paul and Steve returned the following day at 8am. They worked like a well oiled machine. Again, Paul explained what they were doing. We made sure to let them work and only check on them every few hours. By mid-afternoon, Paul knocked on our door. The deck was fully completed!
We walked outside and were blown away. A 2 tier deck just as Paul had drawn up. It was beyond our expectations and It truly was a masterful job. Paul and Steve cleaned up all the scraps and made the backyard look as if they weren’t even there the past 2 days.
My wife and I highly recommend PTR Carpentry Inc. as the one and only choice you will ever need for new build or renovation work. Paul is a professional. A man true to his word. A man proud of the work he does. That’s evident because his employee, Steve, has the same work ethic and professionalism Paul has.
Thank you Paul. You made our backyard something we can brag about. You’re the best of...for a reason. There is no comparison.

Complete House New build

Paul and his crew have framed two new build houses in Burlington over the recent months for our company and their attention to detail and communication have been outstanding.
I would recommend them for any contractor or homeowner looking for a professional team who can produce an excellent product.

Building through a pandemic

Paul and his crew were a pleasure to work with. True professionals. They framed a 4000sqft house for us, up in Milton. During the build the Covid-19 pandemic broke out. They worked in a safe manner, adhering to the recommended safety protocol. Until the provincial shutdown caused the lumber yard to shut down for two weeks (not because they were forced too, but for the safety and well being of their employees), with our truss package sitting on a truck. Paul and his guys were very understanding and accommodating through this delay that no one could have seen coming. And the day we could get our materials and trusses delivered to site, they were back and working hard to get the job done and back on track. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking for a great framer, they will exceed your expectations.

Small, but technical, framing job

We had a shared wall (townhome) that needed framing between two staircases, it was a bit of a challenge given that it changed substrate part way up (poured concrete then blocks). The concrete/block was very uneven where the two different materials met and actually rippled an S-shape across the length of the wall. Having a staircase above and below posed additional challenges. Paul did a terrific job creating a straight and flat surface from which we can now hang drywall. We were especially pleased with his prompt attention, timeliness, skill and professionalism. Would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.

Framing /Renovation

We hired PTR Carpentry to do a variety of framing jobs in a house we were renovating. Not only was this job finished in one day, the work was superb in every way!! Paul, CEO, leads his company with a perfectionistic work standard!! This company does all the things, that you hate about contractors, RIGHT. They are reliable, responsive, punctual, with an exemplary work ethic that goes "above and beyond"!!! They even absorbed minor changes into the job, and as an added bonus.... cleaned up when they are done!!!
Would definitely recommend!!!!

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!

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.
