About Schmidt Custom Carpentry

Kevin and I wish to thank you very much for all of your hard work and dedication during our recent renovation. We are very happy with the results! It is more than we had envisioned and we can’t wait to show it off.

When we started the planning of this project last August the focus was a new kitchen and so we started hunting for a kitchen cabinet supplier. When we decided upon Paragon Kitchens it was Georgina who recommended you as a contractor, which was the best referral we could have hoped for. For the longest time we looked at our project as a kitchen renovation with Schmidt Custom Carpentry working behind the scenes to ensure things were prepared for when the kitchen cabinets/countertops were installed. How wrong we were! We soon realized our project was a home renovation that Schmidt Custom Carpentry was responsible for and the kitchen cabinets/countertops, which were really one small aspect of the renovation, were supplied by Paragon Kitchens. We give you all the credit for how great this project went from day one until its recent completion and for how great it looks.

Your attention to detail, quality work, willingness to work with change, fantastic communication skills and top notch customer service sets you apart from any other contractor or supplier. We appreciate you being there on those days when other contractors were installing aspects of our kitchen and things were not going so well. Your advice and guidance was very much appreciated. When we are ready for the next project in our home you will be the first person we will call. It was a real pleasure working with you!

We have enclosed a little something to show you our sincerest appreciation for a job well done. It is something from one business owner to another for those days when customers/suppliers seem to drive you crazy! Our best to you in the future!

To Whom It May Concern,

I have utilized the services of Schmidt Custom Carpentry twice in the past three years. In 2003, Paul replaced the carpet on our main stairway and landings with oak hardwood and trim. Most recently in May 2006, Paul installed oak hardwood in the upstairs hallway along with four door frames, doors and trim.

I have been extremely pleased both with Paul’s professionalism and the high quality of workmanship. From the first visit and follow-up quote, to the installation and completion of the project, Paul strictly adhered to the timelines that we had agreed upon. Throughout the project Paul was in constant communication with us if any possible options arose and what the implications concerning cost might be.

Before the project began I was also given the opportunity to save money by doing some of the work myself such as removing the old carpet and underlay, tearing out the old doors and frames and finishing all the new wood. This was negotiated before the original estimate was presented to us.

My wife was very pleased with the daily cleanup of the work site which made the normal disruption of the renovation that much easier to accommodate. I found Paul’s prices for, QUALITY WORK, quite acceptable. I have already recommended Schmidt Carpentry to my brother-in-law and to friends of my wife and they were also very pleased with his work. I would therefore not hesitate to further recommend Paul for any type of carpentry work you may be contemplating.

To whom it may concern:

Paul Schmidt has done work in my home and at my office. Both are older homes and he was able to give me the luxury of “brand new” quality without losing the feel and character of the beautiful old homes. Specifically, Paul has replaced / repaired old stairways, completely renovated a bathroom and he designed / built a beautiful cabin with cement flooring as a poolside cabana. Paul not only does great work but he adds value with his knowledge and suggestions. I highly recommend Paul and feel that his customers should feel lucky that they have him working on their project.

Please note that I have had several other carpenters work on my properties with only 50% success rate. Paul has done three projects for me... all were fulfilled with complete satisfaction.

Kind Regards

To whom it may concern:

We recently contracted Schmidt Custom Carpentry to add a walkout door and deck to our house. The work was finished in a very professional manner, and Mr. Schmidt was very responsive to our needs. He also helped us mediate a problem with the door manufacturer, and made the necessary repairs with no additional charges. We would have no hesitation in making use of his services in the future, and in recommending him to others.

Dear Paul Schmidt:

We are very pleased with the carpentry jobs you have completed in our home. We will be contacting you regarding a renovation job in our master bedroom. WE would like to create a large closet with plenty of storage. We’ll need advice on design.

To Whom it May Concern.

My wife and I had decided to undertake a complete renovation of our kitchen, a daunting experience. The supplier had recommended Paul Schmidt as the construction contractor about whom we had confirmed his excellent work history with previous work projects.

During his work on our house he was eager to keep us informed with the work and make valid suggestions for improvements, in addition he interceded with the supplier to make sure that they kept to their schedule also. The scheduling of the sub contractors was excellent and we were kept informed all along.

In total the workmanship and timing resulted in a new kitchen of which we are very proud and we would have no hesitation in using Paul for any future projects or recommending others to do so.

Dear Paul,

My husband and I would like to express our appreciation for the excellent work you did on our new bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Your design and material suggestions made the finished project much nicer than we had even hoped for. Everyone who has seen the renovation has commented on the standard and quality of workmanship.

We also appreciate the time and trouble taken by you and your subcontractors to clean up every day and to minimize the disruption to our household. There were no delays and the project was completed exactly on time, as you promised.

We would not hesitate to recommend Schmidt Custom Carpentry to anyone, and in fact have already done so. Please feel free to use our name and phone number as a contact for references. We wish you and your family all the best for the 2007.
