Review by in Milwaukee, WI
My cabinets and counter tops look fantastic! My thanks go out to the entire team at NuWood (from quote through install and follow-up) for their professional service and expertise. NuWood delivered precisely what I asked for, including a custom nick-nack shelf and under sink drawer. Tim's suggested changes added great value to the project. I highly recommend NuWood!

I had a hard time finding someone to do a cabinet with wood counter. They did a wonderful job. What I liked the best is that easy to communicate with. They email, text answer all questions. When they say they will be there they are not late, they show up as promised.

Our experience with NuWood was excellent and we would highly recommend them. We had new kitchen cabinet soft-close doors, drawers and hardware installed. From the initial appointment to the last, we received exceptional service, care and workmanship in a timely manner and at a competitive price. They went the extra mile to match our existing kitchen style and stain color. We could not be happier with NuWood and all the wonderful people who helped us transform our kitchen.

Review by in Muskego, WI
Nu-Wood SAVED us! I was looking for someone to do the impossible, and Nu-Wood over exceeded our expectations! We had a 'small' kitchen fire a few years ago. We've been cleaning, repairing, cleaning more, repairing more, and we are finally on the home stretch. We had gotten the to-do list down to just a few things left to do, when I found Nu-Wood, to 'fix' the singed sides of the two cabinets that flank the stove. After replacing the 'melted' range hood (which cost us originally $1600) we were left with the ugliest mess. The people who installed the new range hood, suggested (probably while laughing at us) putting stainless steel panels on the sides of the cabinets, but I said "No Way!" I was toying with the idea of replacing cabinets, but the cost was too much. Someone turned me on to the idea of putting formica on the sides, and that is when I found Nu-Wood! I emailed them with my strange challenge, and they gladly met it, and said "We CAN do that!" I was shocked to get their response, because the responses I got before theirs were quite negative. After hearing a "yes" I started to dream happy dreams, and scheduled the appointment for them to come look at the mess. The techs were wonderful, and I was so overjoyed, I threw a couple other small challenges at them, and they smiled and nodded, saying "Sure! We can fix that too!" They restained a false door front so it matches the kitchen cabinets (unlike our failed attempt) made me a custom piece for the ceiling, which is where our pot rack once hung, and replaced the laminate end cap on our counter top, which was attacked by a beer bottle wielding enemy, who is no longer a friend, after he used our brand new counter top as a beer bottle opener, years ago. They gave me back my kitchen! I would of bear hugged them, but they probably would of run out the door, screaming if I did that, but I will admit, my tears of joy were real! I can't say enough about them!

Review by in New Berlin, WI
We started working with Chris in May but he seemed to drop the ball several times. After meeting with him and discussing the job I had to e-mail him a week or two later for the quote. Chris also did not seem to listen or remember what was discussed very well. Mark did the install and he did a beautiful job so I am happy with the work but not with the communication to set up the job.

Review by in Milwaukee, WI
Working with Nu-Wood has by far been one of the best contractor/service provider experiences that I have ever had in my life. From start to finish, they were extremely professional and accommodating to the budgetary needs of my project. With that being said, they truly are a company that puts the customers needs first, which something proving to be more the exception to the norm in the modern era. All-in-all, Chris and his team did a fantastic job, and I will ONLY contract with Nu-Wood for all of my future custom wood working needs. If you have any doubt, don't, as Nu-Wood will do right by both you and your project. Matt

  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.

  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.
