Customer Testimonials


  J. B. Carpentry was highly recommended by multiple sources when we were looking for a carpenter to build the stairs for our new house. Jim was great to work with as we were finalizing the design and choosing the stair parts. His advice was extremely helpful. The stairs and balcony are beautifully and skillfully constructed. We could not be more pleased with the result.

  Jim's main aim seems to be doing what the customer wants. If one doesn't have a detailed plan, Jim happily makes a plan himself. However, if there is something specific you want, he will do everything possible to make your plan work. In the following areas we give Jim a 10 out of 10: provides professional guidance, trustworthy, adaptable to customer's ideas, very dependable, excellent communication skills, very nice guy, easy to talk to, outstanding carpentry skills, upfront about the costs, no suprises.
  Jim redid some stairs for us that someone else had very badly bungled. The stairs are now perfect. He redid some of our new kitchen cabinets that hadn't come together to our liking. The original installer left us "hanging," but Jim fixed our problems perfectly. He designed a column for us that far exceeded what we thought we could have. He built a covered deck for us that we wish was on the front of our house instead of the back because it far exceeds our expectations.
  We absolutely, strongly, happily recommend J.B. Carpentry!

  Jim works carefully and methodically. I have 8 children and about a dozen of their friends over to our house every single day. The boards are straight, perfectly aligned and sturdy. After 2.5 years, not one single board is loose or rail wiggles, and the stairs look beautiful! I would definitely recommend Jim as well as hire him to do whatever carpentry is needed.

  Jim was recommended to us by a local flooring company to replace a large portion of our existing staircase. The quality of his work was second to none. He was extremely professional, considerate, efficient, and tidy. He gave us good, knowledgeable advice and was able to retain some of the original design, saving us money. The end result is a beautiful staircase that we are very proud to have in our home. We will not hesitate to utilize Jim for any carpentry work we may need in the future.
