Douglas was amazing in helping us hang this extremely challenging mirror. I really love how he takes special care when working in your home. He wore shoe coverings and had a large throw down to protect my area rug where he was working. His communication is top notch. Highly recommend him to all my family, friends and community.

After having our house leveled several doors would not longer close. Some of these were pretty severely misaligned. We had received one quote that was way out of line, so we contacted Douglas, based on finding his company mentioned in a facebook post as someone recommended by another to do door repairs. Douglas is a very conscientious worker who is very efficient and knows the tricks of his trade. Al five doors were repaired for a fraction of the cost of the other quote we received. We would not hesitate to hire Douglas again.

Gregory O, April 2024 on Google Reviews

Douglas is a real find. He is very skilled at carpentry and wood work. He has done some cabinet work that was amazing for us and some complicated fence work. He is on time, careful, clean. And great to work with. Like I said, a real find.

Ellen G, April 2024 on Google Reviews

We hired Action Craftworks LLC for various repairs around the house and exterior deck. Douglas approached the projects thoughtfully and professionally, working out the best and most cost-effective solutions. He took the time to communicate the plan, the cost, and detailed documentation of the work done. The repairs were high quality, timely, and often below quoted prices. I would absolutely recommend and hire Action Craftworks again for any future home repair needs.
