“It was certainly a pleasure hiring Top Shelf Carpentry to undertake works in my roof for my home renovations that were to take place. After some discussions with Craig describing the plans we had in mind, he was very elaborate in his description on what needed to be done to get us past the first stage. During the works, Craig and his apprentice, Jayden were very polite and mindful that we were still going about our daily lives. After some hurdles emerged, Craig persevered to accomplish the end result we were after. I was very happy when I told Craig of further works we have coming up, that he would make himself available (with notice) to help with completing our dream home.” 

Jeremy, Ferntree Gully 

“From the very first meeting we found Top Shelf Carpentry to be very professional in every way. Craig and Jayden have been prompt, courteous, informative and competent in all aspects of our project. We are very pleased with the outcome as it has exceeded our expectations, thanks to Craig’s experience and suggestions. We have enjoyed having Craig and Jayden on site as they have been a pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend them to others.”

Jill & Gary, Frankston

“Thanks Top Shelf Carpentry for our new ‘family-together’ space, ‘work out’ space, ‘timeout/alone-time’ space, ‘study’ space, ‘anything-we-like’ space……we can’t thank you enough!”

Chris & Monique, Narre Warren South

“Completed my pergola well under the time frame they allowed. Excellent workmanship. Our pergola turned out better than I could have imagined. I can’t speak highly enough of Craig and Jayden. Fantastic job!” 

Pauline, Devon Meadows

“We were forced to replace our old (rotting) decking & chose Top Shelf Carpentry (Craig).  The decking is approx 4m above ground over our driveway on an elevated block, quite a challenge.  Craig carried out the work efficiently and promptly considering the adverse weather conditions at the time, he has done a great job we are very pleased with our new decking and there have been many good comments from neighbours.  Craig is very friendly and hard working, and he is professional with a great attitude.  We highly recommend Top Shelf Carpentry and Craig will be the first person we will contact next time we require more carpentry.  Thank you Craig for a job well done.”

Mr & Mrs. J, Frankston

” Top Shelf Carpentry were great to deal with; very friendly, were willing to spend time with us to get all the details exactly how we wanted and did a great job constructing our pergola at a good price. We will recommend them to anyone seeking a new pergola” 

Glen & Nay, Berwick

“We were delighted with every aspect of working with Top Shelf; from the initial quote right through to the finished job – we could not have been happier! We can’t speak highly enough about the whole process, and especially the “bloody hard work” that went in to making this happen pre Xmas as promised. Craig was even able to make some pointed suggestions at various stages of planning, that proved to be invaluable – giving us a fantastic outcome that we would not have achieved otherwise. Promises made were promises delivered, how RARE is this in today’s business world! Especially when dealing with “tradies”. The transformation of our back yard is remarkable, and our friends have all commented on the exceptional build quality of the structures. We are keen to get Top Shelf back to complete other works that we are now planning”. 

David & Rachel, Cranbourne South

“We would recommend Craig and Top Shelf Carpentry to EVERYONE.Professional, great pride in workmanship, tidy, friendly, punctual, FAST and very competitive.We needed to get a 6m x 5m Deck and Pergola built in the space of two weeks, with very little notice.  Craig had built the front doors to our house extension – which turned out amazing – so we decided to ask him for a quote and now I’m glad we did.He had all the raw material delivered on the Tuesday and he single-handedly built it from scratch – 5 days later, we were sitting on our new deck and verandah.He organised all the council permits and paperwork. It was the most hassle-free major project I have ever seen.We won’t be considering anyone else for future carpentry work.” 

Eddie & Tash, Wantirna

“From the moment we met Craig, we felt confident that he knew what we wanted…..and he did. The workmanship is superb and we are thrilled with the end result. We were also impressed with the way all rubbish was cleared away and the site was left clean and tidy each day. It was refreshing to deal with a tradesman who kept us informed of the progress and was punctual and reliable. We won’t hesitate to recommend Top Shelf Carpentry to anyone who needs a builder.” 

Ron & Karen, Skye

“ Top Shelf Carpentry provided us with excellent quality work, service and pricing with our double story extension.  From the very beginning Craig was very friendly, helpful, always took the time to answer our questions and kept us in the loop every step of the way.  As owner builders, Craig worked with and alongside us all the way which made our owner builder experience easy and satisfying.  We highly recommend Top Shelf Carpentry to anyone requiring their services.” 

Rob & Cheryl, Ferntree Gully

“Your friendly and efficient service were brilliant. Thank you Craig for your time, effort and craftmanship. It was great working with someone who could quote on a decking project, personally follow it until completion and provide great communication from start to finish. I really appreciate your follow up emails and advice regarding deck care and maintenance. Thank you Liv for your excellent and prompt communication. I will happily recommend you to family and friends.” 

Carl & Mel, Narre Warren South

“We were looking make some improvements to our outdoor entertaining area, but didn’t quite know what we wanted.  Craig provided some great advice, and promptly delivered a quote which was very reasonable.  Apart from the quality of the work his knowledge and ideas were invaluable.  We were so happy with the finished product we have asked Craig to complete some additional work for us.” 

Gareth & Fiona, Kilsyth

” We are very happy with the deck and pergola that Craig build in 8 days.  It looks fantastic!  His workmanship and punctuality was of the highest standard and he communicated very well.  He kept me well informed with the progress of the work.  We highly recommend Craig and would definitely use him again.”
