    So nice and easy to deal with Alan! Would always follow through and the quality of his work is amazing


    Alan was fast and efficient and exceeded my expectations. Thank you

    5.0 Maureen H. San Francisco, CA

    I highly recommend Alan. Not only did he do an excellent job of installing my new, unfinished slab mahogany 3/4 lite exterior door between my kitchen and dining room and installing my clear crystal glass interior mortise door knob on the door, but he also did an excellent job of staining and clear coating the door. I am so happy and pleased with the beautiful results! I was very fortunate that Alan has the skills and experience to complete my door project. Some of the companies that I called only install doors. I am grateful that I didnâ t have to hire 2 different people- one to install the door, one to stain the door. Alanâ s carpentry, craftsmanship and staining skills are outstanding. He pays attention to detail and puts a lot of care in his work. On Friday, 5/10/19, I originally made an online appointment to see Alan on Monday, 5/13/19. However, on Friday, 5/10/19, when I tried to call Alan, I was so lucky to reach him and he was able to come out right away to look at my door! I was so happy that Alan was able to install my door on the following Wednesday, 5/15/19! Before installing the door, Alan placed the door on a table on the sidewalk in front of my house. He sanded and planed the door at that location so that there would be no wood dust in the house. He carefully measured and checked before installing the door, the door knob, mortise lock and hinges. After Alan installed the door, he cleaned the sidewalk and inside work area. At a later date, Alan returned to remove the door and he took it with him to stain. First, he removed the door hardware and left that in the house. After Alan was finished applying 1 coat of Old Masters Oil Based Wood Conditioner Clear 50104 and 5 coats of Varathane Ultimate Polyurethane Water Based Interior Crystal Clear Satin, sanding between coats with 150-160 fine grit sandpaper and wiping the dust off the door, he arranged a convenient time to return to re-install the door and door hardware. Alan is very pleasant, helpful, accommodating, approachable, trustworthy and easy to work with. As a senior with a limited budget, I really appreciated that Alan was willing to work with me to meet my budget. Also, he graciously helped me by filling in 2 holes in my wood floor where the new door was installed. It was truly a pleasure meeting Alan. I will hire him again for future carpentry projects and I will definitely recommend him to family and friends. Alan, many thanks for a job well done!


    He was very responsive and finished the job very well when we wanted it done and cleaned up afterward--very happy with his work.

    5.0 Jacqueline T. San Francisco, CA

    Alan was prompt, courteous and super helpful in walking me through process of replacing my old front door. He was fast to respond to the Home Advisor request form, competitively priced, came by to check door prior to the work and was able to schedule and complete the work in a week! He was on time and fast. I would use him again for other door related projects and def recommend his services.

    5.0 Barbara S. San Francisco, CA

    Alan was amazing— above and beyond quality of work!

    5.0 Amber L. San Francisco, CA

    Alan was prompt, reasonable, and easy to communicate with. He did the work faster than I had planned and made it very easy for me as I ran my business. I'd hire him again in a second!

    5.0 Maxwell C. San Francisco, CA

    Very professional in skill and service, and was spot on with his time estimate. Very happy.

    5.0 Edward A. San Francisco, CA

    Alan is a pro. Arrived early. Cut door to size when issue came up and installed bi-fold door confidently. When asked for better slide to open and close door, Alan adjusted and fixed right away. We recommend Alan highly.

    5.0 Donald D. San Francisco, CA

    We need a door installed that we bought right away. They did such a good job that we hired them again to install another door we needed. I will certainly contact them again for our door needs in the future in our commercial building.
