Unfinished attic space turned into a walk-in closet

Frist rate guy. Honest, articulate, courteous...takes care around the house, shows up on time, and is realistic with his time and cost estimates. He did exactly what we asked him to, and would hire him back in a heartbeat. Great no-nonsense guy.

Main Floor Renevation

Check out these before and after pictures of Paul’s work. This was a big project for me where I gutted the entire main floor of the house. While working through this project Paul had great recommendations and advice on best practices which were greatly appreciated. Paul was very accommodating in creating a schedule that met both our needs. Paul’s quote was fair and honest, he treated the home with respect, was patient with all my questions and was very professional and a pleasure to hire.

I would definitely recommend Paul for any job. Thanks for all the great work!

Stairs Built

Paul the English Carpenter is a reliable and trustworthy tradesperson. He shows up when he says, does what he tells you he will do and is reasonably priced. From my limited experience with tradespeople this seems to be out of the ordinary.

I had some stairs at the back of my home that were in desperate need of repair and Paul came and built it as we discussed within a day. It was certainly a tricky job that other contractors or tradespeople didn't want to tackle.

I will have Paul come in again to work on other projects around the house.

Creation and installation of staircase to basement

Having recently moved into an older Toronto home, we have numerous projects with which we need the help of a talented and reliable carpenter. I truly believe we have found such an individual in Paul, the English Carpenter.

The first project involved making and installing a staircase to the basement, which was previously inaccessible. From our first interaction on the phone, Paul was always highly professional, keeping to his promise with appointment dates and times. His quote was highly competitive and provided in a timely fashion.

The staircase Paul built is beautiful - it is a shame it does not take a more prominent position in the house for all to see ! Paul consulted with us at every step of the process, informing us of our options and giving us guidance. His knowledge of codes is excellent and techinical expertise brilliant.

We are delighted with the final product and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the English Carpenter. Indeed, he is coming back for many more projects in our home.

installing baseboards

Paul installed new baseboards in my foyer and kitchen. It was a tricky job because of my uneven walls, but the end result is fantastic. I'd absolutely recommend Paul because his work is terrific, and he's very professional. I'm completely satisfied with his work, so I'd certainly hire him again.

3rd floor dormer addition, Main floor kitchen addition, Basement frami

I have been using Paul for a major renovation for many months now. He has been very accomodating to my needs and always proffessional. What started out as a simple framing job has turned into a full on addition to the rear of the house and a third floor addition. Paul has followed through on anything asked of him and his quotes are always reasonable. Most importantly, Paul answers his phone and shows up when he says he will. I have been dealing with a lot of trades people, and to find this quality in someone is absolutely key to not losing your mind in a renovation or new construction. I will post more upon completion, but so far I would no qualms whatsoever in recommending Paul the English Carpenter to anyone, including some friends who have also posted positive reviews here. That does say something. Call him, you will not be disappointed.

Framing

We moved into an older balloon frame home that needed to be supported in many spots on the main floor and basement. Paul completed every part of this projection beyond our satisfaction. Even the highly compromised areas were tackled with skill and precision. There was much discussion regarding all aspects of the work so we felt involved every step of the way.

We feel much better about what's behind the drywall.

Looking forward to using him again on the second floor projects.

Basement Renovation

Paul was recommeneded to us by a friend and was punctual and informative from the start.
We already had plans drawn up by an architect and Paul worked to them in order to finish our empty basement.
The Majority of the work was done by Paul apart from the electrical and plumbing which he introduced us to his preferred sub contractors who worked well alongside Paul and gave good practical advice and got the job done well.
The renovation process went as smoothly as possible and we were kept up to date on the progress and changes as they happened.
I would definately recommend this contractor and would use him again anytime due to his skills, attitude and knowlegde.

Door refitting/replacement

From initial contact, to completion of the job, Paul was an absolute professional. He called me back the next day after my initial reach out to him about my job.

When he came over to look at the job and provide an estimate, he arrived on time and on the day he said he would. He took the time to properly look at the work that needed to be done (measured all 8 doors, all 8 frames, etc...). He took the time to answer questions I had. He was also very, very kind to my 3-year-old twins - answering 3-year-old twin-type questions.

After getting an estimate from Paul, it was agreed that he would do the job. Again, he came on the day he said he would and at the time he said he would. He also finished the job within the time he had estimated and within budget.

Paul was an absolute pro, did the job he said he would, and exceeded my expectations. As the subject line says, I wouldn't hesitate to use Paul again in the future. He was great.
