Carpentry and Professional References

To Whom It May Concern:

Steven Knisley has worked for me at my house and is a honest and hardworking person, and does excellent work.  Some of the jobs he has done include ceiling tile, shelving, bathroom and shower tile, drywall, baseboards and installing doors.  I would have Steven work for me again and I recommend him to anyone.  The cost of the contracting work was fair and the craftsmanship was outstanding.

Please feel free to contact me at 780-432-6186 if you have any questions.

Yours truly,

Kellie Freeborn

Hi my name is Nicole and I hired Steve to help me build a 2 x 4 frost wall in my basement. I was so impressed and comfortable working with him that I hired him to help with the finishing of my house. Steve and I worked together and he taught me about carpentry along the way. He made sure to explain why we were doing each step. Steve always kept my budget in mind.

Work Steve did for me:

– 2 x 4 frost wall in basement

– Installed  room doors, closet doors, closet shelving

– Created shelving

Re: Steven Knisley

I am writing this Letter of Reference for the above, as I have had Steve to my residence numerous times. Our 1975 house looked worn and I never believed would look decent again. Steve came in with ideas that I never thought could make such a difference. He was patient as I didn’t know what I wanted . I was surprised in the difference between him and other painters I had had. I felt safe with him in the house, had  no worries about leaving him in the house alone. I am still raving to my friends what a good job he did, my old worn house looks new again. I also had Steve landscape my front yard. I told him what I wanted, went to work, when I came home the job was done exactly as I requested.I plan on having Steve again this summer for on going renovations.
