  • Reef Builders - Key Largo, FL

    This letter is in reference to the quality and dedication that Barbara Scott has shown from Craftsmen in Wood for the numerous projects that we have completed together in Key Largo, FL. The selection and quality of the doors are excellent as well as their stain work and finishing. Barbara spends many hours making sure that each opening is measured correctly and confirms the jamb widths and door swings are correctly noted so that there are no problems during installation. Every order comes crated and delivered to your front door on time and on budget. I highly recommend using Craftsmen in WOod for any custom project that requires the standards that I have been accustomed to receiving from CIW and Barbara.

  • Steward Construction - Arroyo Grade, CA

    The knotty alder distressed doors ordered for my home last year, arrived in a perfect package that allowed me to store them on sight without damage. Each door and jam fit perfectly and we were able to install them without issue. We did have a problem with a steel pocket door system, that was addressed by the sales team and customer service team in record time. The parts were rebuilt by the Company, shipped as fast as possible and we did not slip the schedule a single day.
