We will definitely be recommending you to our friends and we will be calling you ourselves in the future. Thank you very much and we wish your company huge success, you deserve it.”

“My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Derrick and Eric of Thomas Philips Woodworking for several projects on our 1908 farmhouse. We did interview several companies for the kitchen renovation and found that Derrick and Eric were the most willing to work with our budget rather than simply tell us what we could afford. They were great at listening to what we wanted as well as guiding us through the process of design. Every step of our renovation was on time and without issue. I truly felt that I did not need to worry about any of the projects that Derrick and Eric were involved in as their attention to detail, experience and perfectionism showed in every part of their work. Our kitchen turned out exactly as we pictured, and it is definitely the crowning feature of our home. I would recommend Thomas Philips Woodworking to anyone embarking on a renovation or home improvement project. Rest assured you will have a smooth, stress free experience. We look forward to working with Derrick and Eric on future projects for our home, definitely more shoe shelves!”

Dear Eric & Derrick;

Thank you so much for the excellent cabinetry work that you completed at our house. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is evident throughout. Your kitchen design suggestions have created a much more functional and spacious workspace and the bathroom cabinets now accommodate additional features that we wouldn’t have thought to put in ourselves. You were both fun to work with, professional, and accommodating to our renovation timelines and budget. We are very happy with the finished product and the service we received along the way. We have already recommended you to others.

“Our kitchen renovation was a complete overhaul of the original 32 year old space. Eric and Derrick helped us plan the new kitchen, including modern space-saving ideas in their design suggestions. We had seen a kitchen they’d done for a friend, and were so confident, we left town while they got on with it. We kept track by phone and email, and it worked out great. They lined up the electrician, drywaller and plumber, too. When we inevitably said, “While you’re here…,” they ran with it, making improvements to adjoining rooms. They showed up when they said they would and their work was stunning. This Thomas Philips kitchen has breathed new life into our house, and increased it’s value. Not that we’re going anywhere. Not with this new kitchen to enjoy!”

“My husband and I hired Derrick and Eric and their crew to build our kitchen cabinets and couldn’t be more pleased. The design they came up with is beautiful and reflects our taste and fits so well with our 1912 home. They listened to our needs and had some great ideas for us. We are a little bit picky and wanted to paint the doors ourselves for a desired “brush stroke” look. They had no issues with that and didn’t try to tell us what to do. We have been recommending them to family and friends and have had nothing but sincere compliments on the project from everyone who sees it including other trades working on our renovation. Their enthusiasm for quality, their efficiency and ceativity as well as their reliability makes them an easy choice for our next reno.”
