Chris finished installing our new kitchen cabinets and appliances after my husband got tired of doing it. It was a lot of detail work. Four layers of crown molding, two custom made panels, heavy and complicated appliances, etc. Chris and his assistant Matt were wonderful. We have been remodeling our house for over five years and Chris is the most reliable person we have hired for any project. He always showed up on time and worked hard all day. He is meticulous and has an eye for detail. He is friendly and professional. You feel comfortable having him in your home. Chris does not hurry through projects and he is not the cheapest carpenter. However, he will do the job right the first time and he'll show up for work every day, which is rare in the field. We hit many stumbling blocks with our kitchen but Chris was able to make custom cabinets and overcome every obstacle we encountered. I would highly recommend him to anyone! – Meghan, Philadelphia PA

Great Work! My closet had old plaster walls on the inside that were crumbling and getting debris all over my clothes. I had enough when my suit was pretty much un-wearable one morning that I really needed it. I found The Master's Hand online not knowing what to expect and unsure if he would be willing to work such a small job. Chris came by the evening that I contacted him to give an estimate. His price was fair and he was available the next day to get started. The job itself may not have been a big project but he did a wonderful job of putting in new drywall and a hanging bar with shelf. He was on time, clean and courteous. As bigger projects come up I will certainly give The Master's Hand a call. – Erik, Philadelphia PA

Chris made an excellent radiator cover for us. Gave us some options, came and looked at our space, built it on time, installed it, and it looks great. He left a clean work space. And he was nice to our 5 year old daughter. – Dom, Philadelphia PA

Chris hung an old restored wood door and repaired molding around the door for us. Everything went well. Chris showed up when he said he would. Was very pleasant. Worked slowly and carefully, which was appropriate in this type of work. Professional work throughout. – Richard, Philadelphia PA

Chris installed two interior doors and on exterior door for us. He immediately returned my call, gave me an estimate within 24h and completed the work within two weeks. The doors were not square and challenging to install, but Chris did a great job. – John, Philadelphia PA

My front door is big, with beautiful wood detail, but over the years it has expanded and often had to be pushed extra hard to close (especially with humid weather). While I wanted to fix the problem, I really didn't want to bother the door for fear that it might be mishandled. I told Chris about the problem, and he came up with an alternate idea--sand down the frame at the side of the door and the marble beneath the door. The plan worked perfectly. My door now opens and closes nicely and is in perfect condition! – Sharon, Philadelphia PA

Chris replaced an outside door with great skill, resulting in a tight and insulated exterior door. Then he worked with me to design a custom "storm door" for this tricky doorway which is on the 2nd floor, opening to a narrow balcony. He recommended French doors, which he went on to customize for size and function, including screens and glass inserts. He installed everything for a good looking, sturdy and functional custom door. His website shows some of his interior work. I have hired Chris for 3 separate carpentry projects in my house. He is always a pleasure to do business with because he is professional, responsible, and a nice person. Chris likes to help homeowners solve problems by being creative with structural ideas. – Anne, Philadelphia PA

  • Chris was a great contractor to work with. He was friendly and professional. All communication was documented in print, especially when plans or costs were involved. The work was excellent. Many people have commented on the quality of the mantle. Per report, he worked well with the company who does fireplace installation. I felt very comfortable having Chris work in our house. He cleaned up before he left every day. He was respectful and even jumped in to the rescue when Our new puppy ran out of the house. --- Stephanie, Phila PA

  • ​I searched for a long time to find a person to install wainscoting in my living room. Chris is serious and professional yet friendly. He provided me with a detailed estimate after our initial meeting . The end result was beautiful! ---Jean, Philadelphia, PA

  • I have only positive remarks for The Master's Hand, Chris, and his assistant, Matt. By far, the best contractor we have ever hired. Extremely professional, precise, expert work, neat, timely, organized, and trustworthy! The trim and shadowboxing work is beautiful! ---Diana, West Chester, PA
