Default Creative Finish Carpentry---WOW

Ok. I read all the time about good work, great work and not so great work.

Creative Finish Carpentry JUST left our house about an hour ago, and all we can say is "WOW". They are awesome, professional, neat and we highly recommend them as many of you do.

We had our entire home done with the 6-1/4" crown molding and it looks awesome.

Thanks Mario and team for all you do!

I had Creative Finish install beautiful crown throughout my 3,200 sq ft home the afternoon of my house closing in May. It went exactly as it was supposed to--they had 2 crews and finished by dinner time, installed and painted. Timing was critical because i had painters scheduled next day (for walls, not crown)...

My initial contact was remotely, via email and phone. They came out when i arrived in town (pre-closing) to make sure of the crown size and to address areas that were problematic (above the front door where less space for crown).... It added so much to our beautiful home. I would highly recommend them. If you want the job done in one day, it is a no brainer.

So you painted after the crown installed? We want to do this but I thought it would be paint first?

Thumbs up

We used Creative Finish Carpentry to install crown moulding and like all the others here we were well satisfied. It took a little less than four hours to do the entire job, in a Lantana 3 bedroom 2 bath house. They did everything but the closets.

Default Painting after the trim is installed

The trim is always caulked and painted first so when the walls are painted you have a very crisp line. Creative Carpentry does very fine trim, its always a pleasure to paint after pros.

I have also had our house watcher try to contact them and they are also extremely slow in responding to her. I have worked with other contractors remotely and have had none of the problems I seem to be having with Creative.

I want to get the molding installed before we have our furniture moved in next month. I would think that it would be to their benefit to do the work in a vacant house, but I guess they do not really want the job.
Can anyone recommend an alternative contractor?
Try phone call. They responded asap and completed excellent job.

Another happy customer. Creative Finish Carpentry did a great job installing molding around walls/ceilings and tray ceilings, as well as framing some doorways. Great job!

They arrived at my home (a 1600 sq ft Jasmine) and started work at 9:15am yesterday. They were finished and out the door at 1:30pm. It was a most amazing process! It would have taken a month to get that work done where I come from and have cost three times the price (or more). They have this process down to a science! Mario was very thorough and made sure I was happy with everything before he took the check. They guarantee their work for 5 years. What could be better?

Mark me......another VERY satisfied customer!

Smile Skillful Finish Carpentry

Yesterday Creative Carpentry installed crown moulding, baseboards, and built an elegant frame for the large doorway in our remodeled lanai. They did a spectacular job, their work has transformed our house.

Mario is a magician, trust me he can do anything.

This is the second job they did for us and I can say without fear of contradiction their work is the highest quality possible.

We have another big job in mind and they will be the only company we call.

We are another extremely satisfied customer, thanks to the fine work done by Creative Carpentry! They recently installed crown molding throughout our entire home. Their crew was friendly, professional, and meticulous. We would recommend them to anyone!!

They have done work in our home twice now, crown molding, chair rails, trim. They are excellent. Call them, don't email. Ask for Chris to come out and give you a free quote. They know by your home design name how much crown molding is. If you want extra stuff like we did they have to come and look. They bring a large crew, just stand back and be amazed. They did our Lantana model including the bathrooms in 4 hours. Looks beautiful. They will come back and do any touch ups to the caulk as things settle over time too. They are great!!!!

Had my crown molding installed January 14 by Creative. Mario and his team did a fantastic job. Absolutely perfect said my retired home builder other half. Price was also perfect. Place was left spotless. They really appreciated that I had the AC on for them. Thanks again Mario

I also used Creative Finish Carpentry for crown molding five years ago in our house. Mario did all the measurements and installation. His crew did the cutting. Excellent finish including painting in one day. Our neighbors used another company with great results but they were there for four days.
