This craftsman is just Amazing! He goes above and beyond what you expect. He is very efficient, works hard all day, and cleans up before leaving. I recommend him very highly to everyone I talk to about our kitchen.

Scott is a top-of-the-line craftsman. His attention to detail and high-quality work surpasses anyone I've ever used before. I highly recommend him for all your handyman and remodeling needs.

Ryan AHandyman Services and Interior Remodeling

Scott is seriously a master craftsman. I had him out to replace 20+ feet of siding on my house to prepare for painting. There were a few things he had to work around that an unskilled person would have had to hire out before they could fix it. Scott, however, came up with fixes that saved me money and look fantastic! Would not hesitate to hire him again for any future projects!
