Crippen Woodworks recently replaced my 23 yr. old deck. Charlie came out to quote the job and gave me several great ideas on improving the existing structure and totally changing the look of the deck itself. My friends can't believe how good it looks and how strong it feels. Charlie and his crews are very professional to work with and I feel the value I got for the price I paid is exceptional. This is the company you want to build or rebuild your deck.

We had just fired a popular contractor for failure to deliver when we found Charlie Crippen. We had designed our own kitchen remodel in a vintage-style for our 100 year-old home and were practically gutting the space--including moving walls, replacing floor structure. It was essential that with so many changes, the new space and materials still comport with the old house. We needed a contractor with a higher skill set and true craftsmanship for success--and Crippen was the perfect choice. Even with all the custom details such as exposed hinges, inset doors and drawers, built-ins, custom millwork, wainscotting, pocket doors, vintage hardware, historic glass, architectural salvage -- nothing routine - Charlie stayed on schedule, on budget, and delivered quality work. Over the 8-week process, Charlie and his team of talented carpenters and cabinet-makers (Jarred, Edgar, Gordon) worked efficiently, neatly, and always with respect for our home. We enjoyed working with Crippen Woodworks and wouldn't hesitate to call them for another project or recommend them.

Charlie Crippen is the best contractor we've ever used! The work is top quality, was finished on time and within budget. He worked with my husband and me on every detail. Sometimes recommending, based on his experience, but never imposing his views and never trying to talk us into more expensive options. He and his superb crew built a 16' X 24' screened room with wood burning fireplace attached to our house. Each day before the crew left the area was cleaned and swept. His outstanding carpenters cut and fit huge cedar beams together using complex angles perfectly. All wires from the several overhead fixtures were hidden, and after several torrential rains the room has never leaked. Charlie attends to and anticipates every detail, nothing is overlooked, including matching a 12' wall with cedar boards so each piece matches the one next to it. We cannot recommend him highly enough; he and his entire crew are very professional and courteous. We are extremely happy with our new 3 season room. Should we ever need another contractor he would be the only one we'd call.

I highly, highly recommend Crippen Woodworks. Charlie and his crew are true craftsmen who pay the highest attention to detail. They did an amazing job in my home. When they were finished, they left everything cleaner than when they arrived. They were prompt, there were no hidden costs, and they were polite. If you are looking for a top quality job, then call Charlie.

I had everything done from building a new pergola outside in an outdoor kitchen, to rebuilding my deck, built new railings on the deck, rebuilt my front porch with new columns, rebuilt and refinished my pool house, stained all the wood outside, built custom cabinets in my bedroom, built a custom window seat in my bedroom, built custom kitchen cabinets, built custom cabinet in living room, built a custom mantel in my living room, did some regular carpentry repair on my house inside and out, built a outdoor storage barn, you name it they've worked on it. It was an excellent experience overall. They do beautiful top quality work. An extremely kind, courteous, honest, and reliable company. Always very professional. On several occasions he took an idea I had and completely created over and above exactly what I had in my minds eye. In return the most excellent, beautiful pieces of work were created He is very, very talented and I would trust him to build anything for me and know it would turn out phenomenal. He is an upstanding individual with a quality company.

I've worked with Crippen Woodworks on numerous projects. I'd refer them to my boss's boss. Mr. Crippen does what he says he is going to do, when he says he is going to do it for the price he said he would do it for. He is also very good at picking out talent from a large pool of people needing work. They also think very highly of him and seem to have tremendous loyalty.

We have used Crippen Woodworks for many years for trim, mantels, bookshelves, cabinets, and decks. Everytime we are so happy with the quality, the great design, and the value of the work. This company stands behind every project that they undertake.
