    5.0 Joseph K. Woburn, MA

    Emmett replaced 7 interior doors for me, he was always on time with his schedule, he is by far the neatest contractor I have ever had, would definitely hire him again if I need a door carpenter , & I have already referred Emmett to family member that needs new doors at their house. He is a very personable & a pleasure to have working at my house. Debbie Kelley

    5.0 Jim E. Lexington, MA

    Emmet was great - quality of work, speed, value. He also took on additional tasks we had and did great with these jobs. Very personable and a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend him without reservation.

    5.0 Don S. Melrose, MA

    Emmett does outstanding work. He also started on time and finished early. I live in an old quirky home and Excel was completely prepared with contingencies as necessary. Highly recommend.

    5.0 Emir R. Lexington, MA

    Emmett is the best. Professional, kind and great quality work. Heads and shoulders above the rest

    5.0 Paul S. Boston, MA

    Emmett was a extremely helpful and knowledgeable about our door issue. He not only helped me source the hardware, he worked with a manufacturer to make a custom piece. He installed on time and did the work efficiently! Highly recommend Emmett.

    5.0 Elizabeth G. Melrose, MA

    Great work ethic, helpful and honest. They aim to please.

    5.0 Ailen L. Dorchester, MA

    Don't bother looking anywhere else. Emmett was incredibly thoughtful, professional, and communicative throughout the entire process. These qualities are hard to find in one package. Generally, you have to pick two of the three. I'm a real estate investor, and in this line of business, people keep their contractors to themselves. But I don't think it's fair to do that to Emmett - he did right by me by doing a truly difficult cabinet install with a smile. Oh, and he also advised on several other aspects of our project. Emmett prides himself on his work and won't take short cuts. Hire him. If you're still reading this, you're wasting your time. Call him! He has my repeat business, I won't go anywhere else.

    5.0 Sabrina S. Boston, MA

    Really friendly and hardworking guy, answered all communication very promptly. He was more than willing to fix more than I had originally asked for, which was above and beyond what I had originally asked of him. Would recommend him to anyone!

    5.0 Allison D. Melrose, MA

    Emmett was very communicative and very prompt.

    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.
