Excellent work! Explained what needed to be done to rebuild the wood stairs, including presenting different possible options before being able to see full extent of damage. Price matched the estimate. Work performed on time in accordance with proposed options. Would not hesitate to hire them again for other work.

John was very knowledgeable on what had to be done. He used his ingenuity to ensure the repair would be workable as well as look nice. I would definitely use him again should the need arise. I have added his name to my A-List of contractors and will recommend him to all!

Tanglewood is fantastic! They are reasonable and very honest. I hired them to repair the loose railings on my stairway and because they did such a fantastic job, I asked them to do some work on my kitchen cabinets too. Also had some electrical work done. A good all-around company to know. I would use them again and certainly would recommend them to all my friends and family.

Project: Hire a Handyman
John was wonderful. He replaced the vent connector for my dryer duct. He showed up on time and finished the job in a reasonable amount of time. I am very pleased with his work and would definitely hire him again.

Rarely today does one find a service that is both outstanding and priced reasonably. Tanglewood Carpentry was it! John is truly a master carpenter, professional, kept the appointment on time, and is just a pleasant person. We recommend him to anyone!

The one to hire. He explains and draws everything beforehand to see if that is exactly what you want. He notices other features in house and matches to new project.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  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.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  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.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
