Complete condo renovation

The designer introduced me to Niall whom she had worked with before and highly recommended. His team helped me with a full condo renovation in the summer of 2019 that included a complete bathroom and kitchen renovation, new paint throughout the whole unit and all light fixtures. Niall was very responsible and a pleasure to work with. His team can always give me a big good surprise each time I got back to see the progress (I need to move out during the renovation). Able to see how nice my condo can be. They always made sure everything was cleaned up before they left each day. I remembered one time Niall showing me what wrong with my counter table when trying to use the granite from the bathroom. End up we changed our plan and to buy a new one instead. I could not complete the renovation and made my condo be my dream home without Niall team. Thank you Niall and your team!

Carpentry At Its Best

We selected Carpentry At Its Best on the strength of our neighbours' recommendation. They had a kitchen reno done by Carpentry At Its Best, showed us the final result and told us about their experience.

The owner, Niall, contracted to do two major renovations in our house. One was a complete redo of our kitchen, dining room and upstairs hall, and the other was to renovate our basement, including the rec room, bathroom (adding a shower), wet bar, foyer, hallway, closets, etc. Both projects involved a complete gutting of the respective spaces; ceilings, walls and floors, running new copper wiring to replace the outdated aluminum wiring and correcting the shoddy plumbing that was original to the house. The first thing to know about Niall’s handling of our very large project was that it was completed within the originally stated timelines and on budget. This was despite the several glitches and problems that appeared, as they inevitably do in old houses and projects of this size. The second thing to know is that the work was top rate. It was very clear from the beginning that Niall took great pride in the quality of his work and that of his workers. He even had a worker redo a specific finishing task because he was not satisfied with it.

Before any work was done, Niall spent extensive time going over what we wanted. He listened very carefully to our requests and concerns and was always forthright regarding the complications that may be involved.

We were out of our home for 10 weeks. Niall offered us a weekly walk-through to review what was done and what the next steps would be. He was always on time, and every commitment for a meeting was met. Several different tradesmen came through our house and every single one of them was professional and courteous. We felt very comfortable in leaving our home in the hands of these fine workers.

We are delighted with our new kitchen, dining room, halls, bathroom, rec room etc. Below are some before and after pictures of the kitchen, and several shots of the basement. We heartily recommend Carpentry At Its Best. We look forward to Niall’s return in the spring to build our back deck.

Major structural repair of 3-storey home

Niall helped us retro-fit a ridge beam to the 3rd floor of our house.

The job was highly complicated, as the home was already fully finished and he was able to design a plan to make the structural corrections while minimising disturbance to existing finishing. The job involved demo, structural work and then dry walling and re-finishing.

His best skill is organisation, planning and thoroughness. He put us in contact with his engineer and the two worked together to find an elegant solution to our issue.

The job was not easy and multiple contractors passed on it.
His rates are more than fair and he was thoughtful and respectful with our budget and he actually finished on time.

Under the stairs closet

Niall and his team built a new under-the-stairs closet in our basement in an area that was previously just wasted space. They did a fantastic job -- the project stayed on budget and was done within a reasonable time frame and professionally.

Staircase refinishing, new railing, drywall, plaster, mouldings

Niall and his team did an amazing job on my staircase and hallway project. I wanted my pre-finished hardwood flooring installed on my staircase and was having a hard time finding someone who was willing to take the time to do the detailed work it would require. Niall's team was superb. Unlike other companies, he did not try to persuade me to install stair treads because it would be faster and easier. In fact, he reassured me that the install was not only possible, but that it would not be a problem at all.

The team was lovely to work with. They take great pride in their work and making sure it's done to specification and full satisfaction. I would not hesitate to hire Carpentry at its Best again.

Fixed leaking balcony door

We needed help with a leaking balcony door and water damaged wall after discovering an ant colony had set up home in the wall. Niall responded in a timely fashion, thoroughly investigated the source of the leak, considered potential options for repair, and was open to all questions and concerns. His team delivered quality and reliable service in a very timely fashion. Highly recommend their services!

Stellar Deck and Fence build

My old deck was falling apart, and Niall and his crew were quick and thorough in their rebuild. I also had a new fence built that attaches to the new deck. The finished product is far sturdier and better looking than I would have ever expected. I’m looking forward to working with them again on other projects and would definitely recommend!

Pictures below: before, the red paint was covering the rotten wood; after, yet to be varnished.

Double Door Replacement

Niall and his team demonstrated attention to detail and professionalism throughout the entire process of replacing our balcony doors and the surrounding frame that was rotting. Niall answered all of our questions patiently and ensured that we were fully satisfied with the completed work. He completed the job in a timely manner and accommodated us into his busy schedule. We will be recommending Niall to all of our friends and family.

Thanks again,

J&C

Garage door framing

I had a small (half day) job to be done. Niall and his partner did a great job. Came when he said they would. Measured it out precisely. Did a first class job and cleaned up afterward. The charges were reasonable. Would use him again. Highly recommend him.
