Castleberry Carpentry guys were prompt, professional, and true to their word. They showed up each morning early, worked long days, and came everyday until the project was done. LeBron and Joel were knowledgeable and gave good recommendations. They were very respectful of my belongings. Anything they had to move while working was moved carefully and items were kept together how they found them. I came home to find my bed relocated and maded exactly as I left it. The flooring / baseboards they installed came out great. Castleberry’s is the best contractor I have ever hired!West Seattle
Lebron and his assistant arrived on time and got to work. They are meticulous and have great attention to detail. The doors were installed without hiccup. They look great. I wouldn’t hesitate to call Lebron for door installations again. They only surprise was that he wanted a $150 delivery fee due to he and his assistant getting caught in traffic. Because he also inspected the doors at the dealer and found a defect that he had them repair I thought it was fair to pay.Burien WA
Working with LeBron was fantastic. He was very responsive, took time in the evening to squeeze us in after another job, was prompt, and demonstrated great expertise and professionalism. The insight he provided and work that he did for us was top notch. We will not look to another carpenter for our future needs in the area.
Mr. Castleberry showed up at the appointed times, did the work in a professional manner, taught the helpers about the work and had the worksite cleaned up in a couple of hours.
Kenmore WACastleberrys Carpentry repaired a set of firewall doors at my church. Over the years the frame and doors had sagged enough to strike each other when being closed and were difficult to reopen. Mr. Castleberry came twice, once to examine the doors to determine what was necessary and schedule the repairs, the second to do the work. He executed the plan described at the first meeting with the result that the doors, while not in new condition (over 20 years old), now function very well.
Kenmore WALabor cost was reasonable for journeymen standard and exactly as stated on their business description. The job estimate was plainly written and there were no surprises. They were a great team. They came on time, did the job excellently, and cleaned up well. They had to work for 2 days to replace all 5 doors, so I gave them the key to the property. They are a family of journeymen builders who are insured, licensed and bonded. I’ve verified their information with the State and checked for customer ratings from different websites prior to hiring. I find them to be pleasantly serious, hard-working, meticulous and trustworthy people. They do run a tight schedule, but as the need arises, they will be re-hired for our property management needs. Bottomline: no headaches, good price, decent, honest people, first-rate job, and no regrets.
West SeattleThe fence is next to 2 very large pine trees. He dug 2 deep trenches, poured concrete and set the posts to attach to the concrete above ground. He also reinforced the 2 posts with a 2nd post because we’ve had problems with this fence before. He was able to re-use the actual fence boards, saving us money. I expect this fence to remain standing for a very very long time. He’s very meticulous about his work and he cuts no corners. I’m so glad I found him and I’d highly recommend him to anyone for any carpentry project.
MagnoliaIf you need any carpentry or remodel work done, Lebron Castleberry is without a doubt the finest of craftsmen and one of the most professional, thorough, friendly and helpful contractors I have ever worked with.

Description Of Work:Mr. Castleberry installed doors in our house and had to remove some floor moulding as well.Comments:Mr. Castleberry was an exceptional person to have in our home and to have working on our doors. He was professional from start to finish and was very careful to be sure that his work was finished completely and perfectly. The vendor ordered incorrect doors and parts and would not take the blame for their errors, instead they blamed Mr. Castleberry when he had nothing to do with ordering he doors. He was extremely professional about the vendor issues and made sure that our doors were completed to 100% satisfaction, and would not compromise on mediocre installation, even spending extra amounts of his own time making sure the doors were absolutely perfect. He made multiple trips to the vendor to amend the errors made by this vendor and handled it both professionally and punctually.

Even after the insert was done, he continues to check the doors and frame to make sure all angles are perfect and leveled.

Description Of Work:Our second story fireplace was separating from the inside surround, causing us to believe that it could fall through the pop out.
LeBron removed the siding, supporting the firebox, and inspected all that was inside the structure. He added support joists through the garage which supports the pop out, jacked the firebox to be sure it was secure, level and safe. He then reframed the underside of the pop out, put everything back together, caulked, painted and left everything better than it ever was.Comments:My husband is on a job assignment out of the country. He was here when we met with LeBron to discuss our concerns but had to leave before the job was scheduled. They discussed was would be done and my husbands expectations, but as past projects have fallen short when he is gone, and I am in charge, I was skeptical.
LeBron was here when he said he would be, called if there were any delays, and cleaned up before he left daily. He would explain things to me as he and his co-worker progressed, ask if I had other concerns and I was never uncomfortable having them at my home.
The work was completed in a very timely manner, unlike past experiences we have had with other contractors . His finishing work has set a new standard for us. I honestly keep looking around for other things we need done, so I can call him back.

He demolished the old deck as well.Comments:The whole process took a little longer than we expected due to weather problems and materials coming from out of state but, with it being the middle of winter, it wasn’t a big deal.

He lived about 35 miles away in Red Bank. He made an appt to come up, and he showed up right when he said he would (Which with others I have dealt with, they did not show or even call). He seemed knowledgeable, entergetic, looked at everything and made notes, and I told him what I thought was a fair price. He left, went home and studied his notes, and called me back and said he would to the job. He showed up everytime he was supposed to, and his work was very good. The deck was built w/6″ posts, and he even got the concrete tube forms and poured concrete around the base of each post 12″above the ground to give even the concrete work and nice finished look. I would have no hesitation to hire him again.

It required raising the roof in the back and on one side, putting in dormer windows, 2 sliding doors, decking, concrete, hardy-board siding, metal roofing, and working with an existing structure that was made neither plumb nor square. It required imagination and creativity and working with a woman who knew what she wanted.Comments:It’s so adorable I want to pinch its cheaks. Wonderful job! LaBron is a good listener and he is in a terminally good mood. I had a lot of fun with the process of thinking this through, and he surprised me with making rafter tails that match the house!
