    We had the entire interior of our house renovated. It was the best decision we made to go with ES Carpentry. From start to finish Ed was there to make sure everything was done right. When we first met, the idea of remodeling the whole house was a little overwhelming Ed made it simple and had great ideas. The kitchen by far came out the best, from the cabinets & countertops people can't stop talking about it. The two bathrooms are fantastic as well, my wife wanted a spa theme and Ed came through with the space we had. The painters didn't just paint, they fixed all the existing walls and ceiling and made them look brand new. The new wood floors blended so well with the existing oak floors. The complete remodeling of the basement turned out beautiful. The only hiccup was the timeline but it couldn't be helped due to Covid19. The scope & size of this project just couldn't go to any contractor. ES Carpentry was the first estimate and after seven other quotes later we felt the most comfortable with our decision to go with Ed. Definitely what we wanted, top quality work well done.

    Ed and his crews did a great job. Ed came up with so many ideas on how to remodel my basement, which is what I needed. His initial visit which I expected to be 15 minutes, lasted for 21/2 hours as he analyzed the duct work, wiring, etc. I started out just wanting a non- load bearing wall removed, but after Ed told me the various ways I could improve the lighting and general appearance, I was sold on his ideas. The work was completed in exactly the timeframe Ed had given. My basement and laundry room now look great. The knotty Pine paneling has been painted white with new dry wall installed above it. The laundry room was entirely dry walled with a new storage closet built. In summary, Edâ s work and ideas were spot on.

    Ed told my husband and me to leave our Chicago apartment to him and his crew while we returned to our Arizona home. "Trust your contractor," he said. We did and Ed completed the rehab of our vintage kitchen just as we had planned...on time with no detail left for us to finish up. We are very pleased with the workmanship, quality of materials, and attention to the finest points. We recommend ES Carpentry without hesitation. Nice job, Ed!

    What I liked most about ES Carpentry was the ability to accommodate what I wanted to my budget. Ed explained each process and gave me different options to work with. He developed a clear contract that guided me through the project and which made both sides accountable. I knew exactly what to expect and what was expected of me. Ed and the persons who came to work were very respectful towards my family and my house. He introduced each person and described the job they would be doing. I strongly appreciate his work and I would highly recommend ES Carpentry to anyone. I also hope to work with him in the future.

    Ed and his team were awesome to work with! I got several quotes before deciding to go with Ed and what won me over is the amount of time he spent explaining things, working up the quote and evaluating the work that needed to be done. Of all the people I met with before deciding to work with Ed, he also seemed to be the most honest and straightforward shooter. Ed was also accommodating when I asked for more time to allow me to do the demo of my basement, and he put work aside to allow a waterproofing company to do their work before he began his... he was also very courteous and patient each time we asked questions (which was many) and he spent time explaining everything. I never felt like Ed was trying to sell me on something I did not need. I m already planning to hire Ed again on the next project. I m happy with the end results of the remodel and service Ed provided! Thanks Ed!!

    ES Carpentry is a great company. They did a bathroom remodel on an old, small bathroom and it turned out so much better than I expected. Ed and Drew are very professional and explain every detail of the job . They provided me with a written plan and a budget so I didn’t spend more than I anticipated. Ed stopped by at least weekly and checked on he progress of he job. His team of professional plumbers, electricians, tile and carpenters were all excellent. I would highly recommend them.
