Backyard Fence

Project was completed on time and on budget. Workmanship is superb. Tom and Tom arrived on schedule each morning. Close attention was paid to every detail of construction. They were also meticulous about cleaning up at the end of each day and on completion of the job. I am very pleased with the new fence and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Front walkway + deck stairs.

I am very happy and satisfied with both jobs that Tom and Tommy completed for me last month and would not hesitate to use them again (if I decide to replace my backyard fence next year...hopefully!). They were very helpful/informative, and their years of experience certainly made me feel very confident.
I had what we thought was a "flagstone" front walkway that was cracked/heaving and had become a hazard. We initially thought the stones could be re-used / re-laid, but that turned out not to be possible. There was no way to know this until they actually got into taking apart the concrete/stones. Tom contacted me right away with a solution and verrry reasonable quote to switch and now go with inter-locking stones. This would now also have to include hauling away the old concrete/stones. He and Tommy had already researched possible colour choices & availability. I met them first thing the next morning to make the decision - then was on my way to work! Painless! I wasn't stuck looking at hundreds of different colours and styles. It turned out beautifully! and I'm very happy with the choice we all made. It's certainly a great improvement to the house's overall curb-appeal! They will also be back to check on the walkway and re-sand between the stones where needed.
The other job was to replace the treads on my deck steps. This was a "last minute add on" to the original job but Tom was very accommodating and had no problem including this request. The stairs look amazing! Soooo happy to have straight cuts, square corners, and solid steps!! (Those steps had bothered me for years.) Their attention to detail is excellent!
Tom's years of experience/skill in both jobs were certainly demonstrated! He was very easy to work with and took time to answer and explain any questions/concerns I had. The jobs were done quickly and the clean-up was excellent, which is much appreciated!
Thanks very much.

back steps and gate

I was most pleased by the initial service offered by the company. There were a few bumps along the way, yet they were eventually smoothed out. I would recommend this company to people seeking a carpenter who is experienced.

Garage siding repair and painting

Tom and his helper were working on a deck project across the street from me and boy was I lucky to find them. They did an excellent job repairing the back of our garage; Tom's workmanship is top-notch and he kept me up-to-date and informed about the project throughout the job. Both are professional and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. I will definitely call Tom for my next job.

Fence repair

This is the 2nd job that Tom has done for us. As before we were very happy with his work. He was very knowledgable , professional and our fence is beautiful. He and Tom junior are very hard workers and no time is waisted. Tom is an excellent carpenter and we will be using him again. Both Toms and their team are a pleasure to work with. The place was spic and span when they left.

We do enjoy working at your beautiful home, and do hope you can now enjoy much more life out of that older fence that adorns your nice property. I wish you both the very best and thank you again so much.

Front stairs & repair walkway

This is the second job I've hired Thomas to do for me. Our front stairs were collapsing, and in need of replacement. Thomas gave a competitive quote; but it wasn't his price, but his quality of work on the previous job (gate door) that had me select him for the job.

As with any outdoor job, the start date is always contingent on weather. With such a wet spring, Thomas was always mindful to keep me appraised, with plenty of advanced notice, of any changes to the start date.

He and his assistant Tommy did a splendid job -- the job site was kept tidy, and even with a family emergency to attend to, the job was completed exactly on time.

I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend Thomas to anyone looking for the highest quality work at a very fair price.

Fencing

Tom had built a deck and fence for us at another property several years ago, and we were very happy with the work and how the fence and deck have aged with no wobbling or decay. When we needed fencing built in a difficult situation (lots of concrete, different grading, etc) we knew he was our go to guy. Tom's pricing is very competitive and he always ensures all the little details are taken care of, and they leave the site immaculate. We are exceptionally happy with the work he has just completed, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends or family, and will call on him for all our fence & deck needs - he does an awesome job!

Deck, fencing and stonework

Tom came highly recommended from a good friend and so we had the opportunity to have a careful look at Tom's work on their project. I was quite impressed with his workmanship and attention to detail. I had an idea of what I wanted for my backyard project which was a combination of a new large deck, fencing, patio stonework and gardens for the entire backyard. Needless to say when Tom reviewed our design thoughts, a process began of some excellent collaborative thinking and we were pleased with the final design which was really superb. Tom was also quite patient with some minor changes that we kept making during the project itself. Once the work started, Tom and his team worked very hard through some hot summer days and it was a delight to see the project take shape. There were a number of little adjustments/improvements that Tom made along the way that were quite appreciated and a couple of our own that Tom implemented painlessly! Tom was very meticulous on costing, the price was very good and any changes were always in writing, understood and fairly priced. It was very nice to have no surprises on cost. There were some extras which we had not anticipated and Tom undertook without any additional cost and that was much appreciated. When all was done the whole came together beautifully, and we have received many accolades both as to the design and craftsmanship. We recommend Tom very highly and are planning our 2014 projects for Tom now! Thank you Tom to you and your team for our fabulous backyard.

Thank you very kindly Louise for this glowing review of our good service. And it was a pleasure serving you at your lovely home in Forest Hill. I really enjoyed helping you with the backyard design done last fall and completed to receive this kind review. And now I am also as happy to say that also now this spring 2014 the front yard shines just as much, with us returning and completing it for you just last month despite some horrendous spring weather I am so proud of the final results throughout!

At RC, Custom Exterior Woodworking Such as Deck and Fence and Landscaping is our SPECIALTY and we pride ourselves on a service level that's unmatched, so I am so glad you enjoyed having us there and taking the time to note our good service and quality of installations.

And I do hope you have a wonderful spring, summer and fall 2014 season to enjoy it all Louise!

Thank you again so much....and here's wishing you and your family the very best!

Pergola ,deck, and walkway

Tom was very knowledgeable and helpful in giving creative and practical ideas to enhance our garden project. He totally kept us informed on what and when he would be doing our project. Although ours was a small project of replacing a pergola, flower boxes, deck boards, and enlarging a brick walkway, he treated it very professionally and gave it as much attention and concern as if it was a large project. The work was beautifully done with much concern for detail. He added extra touches at no extra cost. His team, Collin and Tom jr. were very hard working and also very knowledgeable and helpful. All three are perfectionists and we would highly recommend them.

Fence

Tom and his crew were quick, friendly and thorough and we couldn't be happier with the work they did. The fence looks terrific and we'll definitely be hiring them for more projects in the future.
