We could tell from his easy and pleasant demeanor, as well as the fair quote to complete the job, that he would be good to work with. Bernie and his crew got to work shortly thereafter and their attention to detail did not go unnoticed. They were a very trustworthy group to have working in our home â€“ often when we were not there. We are very pleased with the end result and appreciate the meticulous job that they did. We would recommend Bernie and the â€œDrew Crewâ€ to anyone who wants to renovate or build.

the team conducted a major and complicated construction project for us. We are overjoyed with the final product which has, as a result of RC’s good management and fine craftsmanship, greatly exceeded our expectations.
Our project involved building a new 1100 sq. ft. construction and basement crawl space, a complete gut and remodel of our existing 800 sq. ft. home, and connecting the two in an architecturally complicated manner. We hired RC based on their outstanding references, the good rapport which we immediately felt with them and because they put a considerable effort into carefully gathering the information necessary for a robust estimate of the overall cost for the project.
Throughout the process of having our new home built we were very happy in our dealings with RC. They were always direct, honest, fair and timely in consulting with us when things did not go exactly as planned. They were available to us throughout the duration and made sure to involve us in important decisions while not overwhelming us with details of the construction.
Now that the project is complete, we rest assured that no corners were cut and that considerable care was put into every aspect of the project. The attention to detail in the finishing is especially superb. We resoundly recommend RC for all of these reasons and because of their fine character which we have grown to know and trust.

Renowned Carpentry was hired to renovate the basement of our new home in the summer of 2012. Bernie and his team undertook first class work and did not quit until everyting we asked for was completed to our satisfaction. As a result, we hired him to complete several other projects in the home including building custom cabinets in our garage, building a deck, installing an awning, building a custom wine rack in our wine cellar, pantry and installing crown moulding.
We would highly recommend Bernie and Renowned Carpentry to anyone considering a renovation and we will certainly use him again for any of our future projects. Bernie was professional in his approach to providing an accurate scope of work and contract price for all of projects. He ran his projects very well in coordinating his trades and meeting the schedules. He was a wealth of knowledge and provided us with several helpful ideas and suggestions for our projects. He and his crew also take the time to clean up at the end of each day which made the renovations much easier. We would recommend Bernie to others without hesitation.

Taking on a major renovation/construction project, we were very concerned about finding the right contractor. Bernie’s experience in approaching such a project was evident, and helped put us at ease. The whole team was extremely efficient, flexible, professional and pleasant. Working with Renowned Carpentry, we always felt that the construction of our home was in good hands, with a contractor who had our best interests at heart. Bernie kept lines of communication open, to ensure that each step met our expectations, and also to suggest changes or alternatives where advisable. With the benefit of his expertise, the end product turned out better than we could have anticipated. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to go with Renowned Carpentry, and we recommend them wholeheartedly.
