“Last year, I hired Pete’s Custom Carpentry to build a new bedroom onto my house. Pete guided me through the process: from the room design to choosing bathroom cabinets and fixtures. The most important part of the process was herding and directing the many sub-contractors. This is always the most challenging part of construction and Pete did it with humor, kindness and knowledge. He was and is a pleasure to work with. The room turned out beautiful and it met my high expectations.” Sharon S.
"You and your team helped my family to purchase and install 5 rooms of Wood flooring for our new home at Princeton Junction, NJ. The work was done neatly and promptly. The final result is a floor installed with care and perfection. We would recommend our family and friends without hesitation!" Jeff and Diane B.
"We are very pleased with the kitchen remodeling and the large addition you added onto our home in 2004. You and your crew did a great job in every aspect of this project. We had a few architectural adjustments which you worked out with my sister, who designed the addition, and everything came together well. Years later when there was an issue with some ceiling joint tape coming off it was quickly repaired and has not been a problem since. We never thought twice about leaving you in charge of our home. You and your crew were always neat, prompt and reliable. We've recommended you to a number of people over the years and will continue to do so." Cathy & Bob W.
"I just wanted to drop you a line and say THANK YOU for our new bathroom. We are really enjoying it! I know it was a long road to get it done, but your professionalism and attention to detail were so worth the wait! I appreciate that you performed the work with a focus on minimal interruption to the rest of the house, paid attention to every detail and even did nice things like hanging the picture on our wall in the foyer (the right way!!!), replacing our light in the laundry room and so many other little things that you really didn’t have to do. It was a comfort knowing that whatever happened, you would take care of it. It is so hard to find trustworthy contractors and you are one of the few! The bathroom is beautiful and built so solidly I think it would survive a tornado!" Frank & Margie P
"Pete has done many jobs for us over the past 5 years and we find him to be a true crafts person, meticulous and highly skilled at his work. Our first encounter with Pete was when we decided to gut our bathroom and do a complete renovation. Our plumber recommended Pete. We found him personable and very anxious to please. He listened with intent to what we wanted and made some helpful suggestions of things we didn't think of. His estimate was COMPLETELY itemized so we knew what the deal was, we so appreciated that over our last contractor. Over the weeks that followed he was here when promised, and did an amazing tile job. The bathroom is small but it looks like something you see in a magazine...with his input we have a bathroom we love. He just completed a siding job on our older home, along with windows and trim...this old house looks new again. We love the new Pella windows he installed along with the wide interior moldings that he suggested would truly set off the beauty of the windows...he was so on target. He did extra needed framing to make sure the energy efficiency we were expecting from these windows will truly be there. We already feel a difference in the interior temperatures on those warm days, the house is staying amazingly cool. With this early indicator, we are anticipating lower heating bills come winter! A previous contractor did a renovation for us of a porch, conversion to a heated/cooled 4 seasons room. It looked lovely, but then after 3 years we found water seeping in and mold forming on the walls during some heavy rain patterns. Pete came over and did an evaluation of what was happening. The previous contractor never took the steps to level the floor like he should have and take other precautions so water was coming in and soaking the rug and walls. He did a fabulous job of fixing what the other contractor should have taken steps to correct the first time. That guy was too busy looking at the next job to do the right thing for us. We have come to trust Pete. He is honest and really tries to do his best for his customers. We get personalized attention and always responds to our calls answering our questions or coming back to see what we are referring to. After the first job he did for us, we felt confident enough in him and his helper to give him a key to our home to work unsupervised by us. My wife says we can not move to Florida when we retire as we will lose the best contractor we have ever had!" Carol & Woody E.
"I cannot tell you how many times I sat down to draft you a thank you note and kept getting pulled away! So since ¾ of my client base is vacationing I have a few minutes to clear my head. So firstly, I want to tell you that we are so IMPRESSED with our kitchen. We absolutely LOVE it, the kids love it (and teenagers are usually oblivious) and every single person that steps into our house is dumbfounded. Our kitchen as you know is the heart of our house and the first room people head into from our foyer so it truly is the showcase for the rest of the house. And FINALLY after 10 years we now can say the house has lived up to its potential. I am totally not an artistic, creative person so your patience in working with us during our many adventures with tile and granite selection was superb. I never thought I would enjoy washing dishes but I am absolutely in love with my new sink. I could never have imagined how real full length cabinets would change the entire look of the kitchen. Our island is the best and our contrasting colors with the cabinetry really looks great. However, why we had delayed for years in renovating our kitchen was I could never find a contractor that I felt I could trust and would meet the standards of workmanship I expected. When we saw our friends’ kitchens we knew you were the one for us! True work ethic is invaluable today and your team’s craftsmanship, promptness and diligence was unquestionable. And amazingly you kept us within our budget! Thank you so much for bringing our house back to life. We love socializing even more now and are superbly satisfied with our new kitchen. Call us anytime for referrals!" Gina and Eddie D.
