One of the Good Ones

After being burned by bad contractors in the past, we probably had close to 20 different companies come to quote on our project - so let me save you all that trouble and time right now - we ultimately picked Niall for a reason (price, timeline, his genuine attitude and straight-shooting personality) and we were not disappointed!

We opened up our front enclosed porch and insulated it, added a new front and a new rear door, re-floored the entire house, completely gutted and renovated the kitchen, added a new staircase, painted, smoothed out the upstairs ceiling, and added built-in cabinetry, closets, and an entertainment unit.

It really pays to have your general contractor be a skilled carpenter himself - which showed throughout the many little (and big!) details in the finished product. Niall custom-matched our old baseboard moulding by making it all himself! He also added things we never discussed in our original scope of work, small quality of life improvements throughout the house, which he simply added and never charged extra for: new door stoppers, new electrical outlets in our basement that saved us from having to continue using extension cords, and new motion-sensing LED lighting in all the closets, for example.

Niall was responsive and communicative throughout the project, was transparent about our budget, and finished the project on time based on his original estimate.

Niall, Billy, and all his sub-trades (floorers, painters, electricians, and his preferred kitchen contractor) did excellent work, were responsive and open to correcting minor issues to my high and exacting standards, and more importantly, Niall built-in plenty of time ahead of the project to make sure all the necessary suppliers could deliver on time even during COVID, lockdowns, and manufacturer/wood shortages.

I've already recommended Carpentry At Its Best to friends and would hire Niall again for any future work in our house.
