Dear Johnny Pearl + Cabbagetown Carpentry

I have waited long enough to write this thank you but because of the previous experience with contractors we wanted to make sure that our "fix" worked. And it does! Our basement is beautiful, warm and most importantly dry! The rains for the past two years have solely tried your work but the work has beaten the weather. I appreciate that basements are very difficult when it comes to water.. and I am grateful the we avoided the $100.000 expense of ripping up the drive to coat the exterior walls of the house.

Of course the rest of the basement is beautiful- we knew the calibre of your work before you started. I was most pleased that the renovation plans we came up with matched our budget- and the challenges that were faced ( drains, heating supply) were met with a variety of solutions of which I was part of solving.

I am very happy with the work, timing, the cost.

Feel free to pass along my name and number if someone has any questions or wants a referral

Best Regards

We are thrilled with the outstanding high quality of work Cabbagetown Carpentry provided us. The extensive redesign of our house has converted our east end home into a classy,original, and disability-friendly home for us to enjoy for life. We now have our oasis in the city. We will forever be grateful to Johnny and crew for the happiness the new look of our house has given us.

We are very pleased with our front porch renovation. It seemed to me that not very many contractors wanted to do renovations on old porches, but Johnny Pearl did not shy away from this dirty job. He knows these old houses- and related challenges- very well.

First of all, he responded quickly when I emailed Cabbagetown Carpentry about the project. That alone gave me me a very good impression! Wee discussed the scope of the Job in person the next day, and Johnny got us a quote the next week. Once we were ready to start on the project, Johnny and his team got right to it.

It was great to witness progress everyday. The guys were meticulous and left a clean job site at the end of each day. Johnny consulted with us thought the project to ensure we where happy, and to get decisions on options. We received lots of compliments from friends and passer-by, even before the job was completed! Johnny also inspired two neighbours to get the fronts of their houses fixed up. You Don't see that everyday.

The porch looks great, thanks to Johnny Pearl and his very capable team! I am sure we will hire them in the future.

Last year we had our kitchen completely gutted and renovated and we had used Johnny Pearl, Cabbagetown Carpentry before on other jobs, so we called Johnny and everything went so smoothly, as always with him. He is prompt, honest and reliable, something hard to find in contractors these days. We highly recommend both Johnny and his crew. Speaking of his crew he has the best plumber and electrician I have had the pleasure to meet.
