My husband and I want to re-do the walls, ceiling and trimwork in our bonus room and also put in some built-in shelves and recessed lighting. Can anyone recommend a good contractor? Or tell us who to avoid?
We just finished our basement and added a screened porch and the trim carpenters our builder used were incredible. We hired them back after the job was finished because they made our basement much nicer than our main house! Call Bill Piebenga at 522-3656. Here are some photos, hopefully good enough quality to show their ability. These guys normally trim out $1-3M homes but the economy is tough so they are doing lesser jobs like my house these days!
Built-in cabinets to hide our water main valve and nicely trimmed room withi crown and wall molding:
TIG Pine ceiling with crown and flush mount heaters nicely trimmed:
Built in corner shelving to hide concrete foundation sticking into room and also nice trim and crown and cove trim:
Nice 1" thick lattice to hide ugly underside of old deck and stairs:
I used a father/son team both named Rick Andrews, phone #919-528-6514, or 919-323-5215.
I have received feedback from other people to whom I've recommended him and they have all been very happy and satisfied with the results. He's going to be coming back soon to do some closet work for me along with more wainscoting and possibly a coffered ceiling so obviously I've been extremely happy and proud to show off his work.
They were not only reasonably priced but cleaned up after themselves, came on time and were honest and pleasant to work with. If you'd like some pictures of their work, let me know and I'd be happy to send them to your email address. I'd definitely recommend getting an estimate from them before you decide. They came in 2k less than other contractors for the same work and materials.
RDUbiker, nice trim work! And I have that blue in one of my rooms
I'm not giving you my opinion until we get some real furniture in there - wife picked it out. I trust her, but it's VERY blue!
