We've been using ACAC for many projects, big and small, for going on twenty years. Marty is the best! Very knowledgeable, personable and easy to work with. A perfectionist, he never considers a job complete until it's perfect. Honest, reasonable, reliable and friendly.

Last year we met and contracted A Cut Above Carpentry to do a full kitchen remodel. (Their estimate and timeline were very reasonable.) Because of delays in appliance deliveries (ordered by us not the contractor), we had to reschedule 3 times. A Cut Above was understanding and accommodating. When our project finally began, we quickly saw we had made the right choice. Marcy, the office manager, was professional, fantastic at communicating all steps, costs and information on the remodel and just checking in on the progress. Marty, the contractor, was committed as much to our vision as we were. He was prompt, efficient, pleasant and generous with information, questions and suggestions. His work is excellent and you can see his skill and experience everywhere. It can always be a challenge working on an older home (ours was built in 1958), and you never know what you may find. As we progressed and unexpected conditions came up, Marty would always have a solution. He discussed each one with us, presenting the pros and cons of each solution, along with his thoughts on the best way to proceed. His ability to troubleshoot and solve each and every challenge that came his way is an asset, and my number one reason why I would recommend A Cut Above Carpentry. Our new kitchen is everything we dreamed it could be and we canâ t thank A Cut Above enough for their care in getting it accomplished. A Cut Above Carpentry is now our go to contractor/carpenter for any and all home projects.

This company is great to work with! A Cut Above Carpentry is responsive, treats us like were their only customer, and I have yet to have a repair or project they couldn't help with. They've helped us on at least 1/2 dozen different service calls for repairing our rental property and our home. We have had indoor repairs completed [from painting, to tile work, to replacing electrical fixtures] and outdoor repairs [they repaired rotten wood at the windows, replaced roof shingles and trim, repaired my deck, and fixed a water leak]. If they had not discovered the leak and located the source of it we would have had major damage in the Living Room. They repaired a problematic door that my home had for years which may seem like a small issue but I had previously paid other licensed handymen and professional carpenters who had "tried" to fix it on at least 4 different occasions. After having those others come back again and again I had given up. Marty offered to give it a shot and I told him that I did not want to pay to repair it again since I had already paid others hundreds of dollars to fix it in the past. A Cut Above Carpentry was able to fix it when they were there for another repair and did so at no charge! It has now been more than 5 years without a re-occurrence. [In the past the problem popped back up within 2 - 3 months]. My only regret is that in hindsight I wish I had paid them something for that repair since they were the only ones who could fix it right, the first time. These guys are great, there is no detail overlooked from the initial phone call to the repairs to the final billing and the follow up. They even gave me the tax form, and the paperwork to support it, to apply for a energy credit when we had our insulation upgraded - another thing we didn't know we needed. When fixing the water leak from a roof vent they discovered that we had little to no insulation in the attic! The fact that they let me know without pressuring me to fix it immediately gave me the feeling that they had genuine concern for my home, rather than just how much money they could make off of me and my old house. As usual they gave me a reasonable estimate and we had the work done within two weeks (not because they couldn't do it right away but because we had to save for the unexpected repairs). They explained that they took credit cards which was a lifesaver because we determined with winter coming it was very important to do ASAP. So glad we did since it turned out to be one of the coldest winters in years and we made it through with a lower heating bill than the year before. They completed the job in no time - under budget - and left my hallway cleaner than before they began. They are always on time, communicate well, have fair prices, and excellent customer service. Everyone I have worked with is pleasant, professional, and always seem to enjoy their work. I appreciate the accurate estimates so that there are no surprises when the final bi

Cut Above Carpentry framed and installed an exhaust fan (minus the electrical work) above my garage. They worked with me to fit me into their schedule. They arrived on time for the estimate, and to complete the project. They called ahead-of-time to confirm their arrival time. The carpenters were polite and professional. They completed the job quickly, explained the work that was done, and cleaned up afterwards. Overall, a top-notch company. I can't highly recommend them enough!

5.0 Frederick, MD

They built a deck for me and did outstanding work! I love my new, composite deck, it's beautiful and allows me to enjoy my peaceful view of the woods again! I can't say enough about this company, the office and the quality of customer service is outstanding, great communication. The work is top notch quality, even the little things weren't overlooked. Keep up the good work, and if you need a deck, or anything, call A Cut Above Carpentry!
