Many Handy Projects

Shan was very quick in her response and came the next day. She is very personable, has a high standard for herself and did several small projects for us. The main ones she completed was a repair on a kitchen drawer track issue, flooring gap, and closet related problems. We will definitely use Red's again!

Knockdown ceiling, Painting, New baseboard paint and install

Shannon did knockdown texturing on our main floor. This also included ceiling repair from the installation of potlights. Fantastic job, completed on time and as quoted. We were so happy with the service, we had our main floor and stairwell painted a few months later, including replacing some trim work. Again we were completely satisfied with the attention to detail that was taken. Our final home renovation a few months later included replacing our existing baseboards with new ones which included painting and installing them. We would highly recommend Shannon. All questions were answered and explained which made us
more comfortable with the work being done. Pricing was very reasonable.

Bathroom remodeling

Red's Carpentry and Fine Finishes renovated our main bathroom. They were considerate of our wants, needs, and budget, making excellent recommendations for a walk-in shower to replace an aging, rusting bathtub. This suits our wish to 'age in place'. The project, from concept to completion, was well planned and executed, even working around a restoration project in progress in another part of the house. See photos, attached, of the finished project and the 'before' shot. We are VERY happy with the finished product, and do not hesitate to recommend Red's Carpentry and Fine Finishes.

Ceiling repair and paint, kitchen cabinetry, stained glass installation

I cannot say enough about Shannon and her team. I had initially contacted Red’s for a quote to have the ceilings repaired and painted, and new pot lighting installed. At our initial meeting, I also mentioned a few other odds and ends jobs I was looking for someone to finish off for me, and she didn’t hesitate to take on the work, even tho they were considered “challenges” by other companies I’d been in touch with. In fact, she actually came by 2 days later on the weekend and fixed the front door that I had been told was impossible to adjust.

I have a half finished cabinet that I wanted to have finished to match the others in the kitchen, and she did not disappoint! I also have 9 stained glass window panes that needed to be installed, and even tho she said it was not something she had done before, agreed to take it on as well. The finished product would suggest differently. I am so pleased with the final result of both woodworking projects. Both have far exceeded my hopes! On top of it all, I put a short time frame on the woodwork portion of the job, and again, she took it all in stride. She tirelessly worked long hours and weekends, during to coldest part of January to get the woodworking part of the job done within my time crunch.

As she was working on the ceilings, she noticed a “bulge” in the ceiling beneath the upstairs bathroom. Sure enough, the old plumbing had a leak. Shannon didn’t hesitate to take on responsibility of overseeing the repairs to the plumbing, as I was away, and re-do the repairs to the ceiling. She did an incredible job on the crooked, bumpy ceilings of this 100+ year old house! The entire house was left in pristine condition, and her initial quote was what I paid, even tho she went far, far above and beyond what was agreed upon.

I can’t thank you enough Shannon for your professionalism, patience, and perseverance. You handled all of the challenges and changes with calmness, confidence, and just the right amount of humour to put me completely at ease! I will be in touch with you soon for the next project to complete on my list, and will most definitely recommend you to friends and family!

Basement drywall

I have worked in the trades, have friends in the trades and hired numerous trades over numerous renovations; and I am always amazed at how awful the experience usually is. They don't show up, they show up late, the cut corners, they complain and up-charge, or make assumptions and do things that don't account for the job in it's entirety just their part in it; and on and on. None of the things you would think to look for change this either 100 stars or non, most expensive or least expensive. For example before I found Shannon at Red's, I had several quotes for the job the most expensive of which was almost $8000.00 and was highly rated here on homestars - that was more that 4x the price of any other quote (5 quotes); others with the highest ratings cancelled day of or no showed.

Thank god I found Shannon! Her quoted cost was great even though as we went on it was clear she probably should have asked for more but instead of complaining she simply said "a deal's a deal" and put in a ton of hours and hard work. Her communication was great she kept me informed via text how each day was going, connected regarding any issues which arose immediately and asked about things that may impact other pieces of the job down the road. I refer to those as the business skills and she was a great business to work with. Regarding her skilled work, she showed up on time ready to go each day. In line with the communication she would be in touch to ask questions to ensure that I had time to consider things I admittedly had forgotten to think about. She put in long days, kept the house clean, cleaned once she left and the final product was great. I also did initially expect her to prime the entire project which she did.

Thanks so much you made the job smooth and professional - which is what should be the expectation.

Thanks for the 10 stars, Duncan! You're right--the tight space was challenging, but we took our time and got it right :) Your new barn door looks great!
