Review by in Plainfield, IL
We are sorry this is so late. The job was done Sept 2014. We wanted to wait to give a review but not this long. But by waiting this long i can honestly say that they did a fantastic job. They took a kitchen that did not function well at all and worked with us to create a kitchen that is just fabulous. Not just the look but in the way that it now functions. We can not think of a single thing we would change or do differently. Sean does excellent work. Im not sure you can find better if you tried. His ideas and the working in of our ideas have been great. People see our kitchen and they are just amazed. Remodeling your kitchen is a really big pain as you have no stove, sink or appliances for awhile but they really helped make it not so bad. It was all worth it. We also had a few issues with the house that we found and they did great in handling these problems. This was our 3rd project with them and we would love to have them back someday when the next project arrives. We have bathrooms next. Again, I apologize for this being so late. We love our new kitchen!!

Project: Build or Replace a Deck or Non-Masonry Porch
Very well done job.
5.0   |  
These folks were top-notch in their attention to detail and to the quality of their work. Having never had a deck before, these folks were extremely patient with my questions and concerns and always made me feel confident with regards to the project at hand. Everyday I returned from work, I found a very clean work-site and wonderful progress being made on our beautiful deck. Love the results and am so glad we went with the folks at Artisan Custom Carpentry!

Review by in North Aurora, IL
When it came time to update a second floor smaller bathroom, our first call was to Artisan because we were so pleased with the other projects they've done at our home. As with any remodeling project, there are always surprises and challenges once the demo is done, and this time was no exception. But the Artisan team came through again and the result is a fresh and functional bathroom with all of our ideas and wishes incorporated. Another job well done.

Excellent work securing my household with new door and repairing the rest. I plan to use them again as needed. Would recommend Larry and his crew.

Beautiful workmanship. Worked through problems with a difficult building inspector so the project took a little longer to complete, but well worth the wait. We will never need to replace this deck -- it's built to last & looks great.

Review by in Aurora, IL
We used Artisan Custom Carpentry to build a Pergola on our back patio. Larry did a great job in helping us in the design and was excellent in his communications throughout the entire process. The quality of the work was top notch. Sean and the team went out of their way to deliver beyond the contract, including routing and sanding the beams and fixing a large crack in our back patio, without prior discussion. I would highly recommend this team for any work you are looking to do. They are humble, honest and informative.

The deck design is fantastic! Sean offered ideas as we went along which made the deck even better than the original plans. They designed a waterfall as a privacy screen and it is definitely the focal point of the deck. We get lots of compliments from people walking past the house. I would definitely recommend them!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
