TrueGrain is the best of the best! Not only is their work impeccable but their service and eye for detail unparalleled. If you are looking for quality at a reasonable price shop no further. This is the guy!
John and his super friendly & totally pro crew (which included his shop teacher from high school!) just installed cabinets for our kitchen and laundry. They could not have done a better job. We wanted to keep with the quality and vintage look of our 1926 Spanish house and they matched perfectly with modern day conveniences like self-closing drawers and pull-out pantries. When a drawer wasn’t opening smoothly, they came out the next day to tweak. This is the kind of craftsmanship and service that deserves true shout-outs.
I had a great experience with John/TrueGrain. I moved into a new home and wanted to extend the existing (new) kitchen cabinets all the way up to the ceiling. I first contacted the original cabinetry installers but decided against using them because they seemed very unreliable in delivering what they promised; it doesn’t matter whether it’s something as simple as returning a phone call or providing a written estimate in the timeline that was promised, when there is no follow through that’s a big red flag for me.
I came across TrueGrain on Yelp, as I generally prefer to support local small businesses. John was friendly and showed up on time for our estimate appointment. What I wanted was fairly straightforward, and he provided a written quote that evening. It wasn’t the least expensive estimate that I got, but I thought the pricing was fair and more importantly I was impressed with his professionalism. I chose to go with John’s bid, he came back to take more precise measurements, and it was simply a matter of waiting a few weeks for the new cabinets.
Installation took most of the day, with John and one other worker. Again, both were friendly and respectful, and actually took time to take off shoes at the door, not trek dirt in the house, and actually clean up after themselves. I like to keep a clean house, which John seemed to respect and appreciate–he said that he likes to keep his office/workshop the same way!
Overall, very happy with my cabinets and would use John again for another project in the future.
TrueGrain just finished my custom entertainment center for my media room. AMAZING! They delivered the most gorgeous product! Great communication, exact to the rendering he furnished, and detailed all the way to the hardware. I would HIGHLY recommend TrueGrain to anyone looking for quality craftsmanship, attention to detail, and exceeding your expectations!
