It’s hard to believe, but it has been 5 years since we first starting working with Jeff Rollings and Westwood Fine Carpentry. We first met Jeff through a mutual acquaintance, who highly recommended him. In 2006 we asked Jeff to complete the trim work in our newly finished basement. It was quickly evident that Jeff did remarkable work. His attention to detail and precision were greatly appreciated. Even after he was finished we took notice of the intricate touches he added without being asked, just simple embellishments that made a whole world difference.
When it came time to add built-ins to our family room, we called Jeff. We had a specific design in mind and we knew he could make it perfect. After working together on some of the details and many improvements added by Jeff’s experience and knowledge, we had a final design. Over the course of week, Jeff and his crew meticulously created what we had envisioned. Beyond their skill and expertise was also a politeness that I have not seen in other contractors. Jeff was on-time and treated our home like it was his own, continually ensuring it was kept clean. The result was exactly what we hoped for. To this day we are complimented on how beautiful it is.
Many years (and one new child) later, we have run out of space. Knowing it would be a big job and could potentially lead to renovating our whole home, we decided to building an addition and create our dream kitchen/dining room. Before we began we did our due diligence and researched renovation companies, large and small. The large companies were expensive and impersonal, even using the wrong name during correspondence! The small companies were questionable at best. Of course we called Jeff. It didn’t take long before we remembered why we love him so much. Jeff immediately offered new and inspiring ideas (without cost!) as well as cautions that can only come with years of experience. Over the last 6 months, in collaboration with Jeff, we have planned and designed our dream. He has not been shy about sharing his trade secrets, or his vast network of skilled trades to help us get quality workmanship at reasonable prices. Throughout the process Jeff has been wonderful. He has always been available when we needed him and would always make time to come by, often in the late hours of the evening.
We are excited to say we will be breaking ground in August of 2011 and look forward to seeing our dreams come true. We know Jeff will make it spectacular. For anyone looking for an honest, quality, skilled contractor, look no further.
