I interviewed 25 contractors for my project. From the beginning, 8 Inch Nails was straight with me. They were able to retain the look of my 1920s home, and matched the details perfectly. They treated me like I knew what I was talking about, were courteous, arrived on time, and always left the work site clean. Josh is very honest and stuck to his bid while delivering everything I was looking for. I love my little house, and love it even more with the work 8 Inch Nails did!

Josh has done a lot of work for us inside and out. His work is top quality and pricing is very competitive, and he has great interpersonal skills. I felt really good about the first project and will always use 8 Inch Nails. I’m not even going to bid out our other work. I’ll give it to 8 Inch Nails because we trust them.

Our home (built in 1906) needed a new garage. The work 8 Inch Nails did to match the era and style of the home was amazing. There was a level of detail and craftsmanship we really didn’t think could be delivered on. Josh and his team have a very high level of skill, really listen to your needs and come up with solutions to make it work. Josh is very detail oriented, courteous and willing to take care of all the legwork with permits and such. We trust him a great deal.

Eight Inch Nails Construction did an extensive renovation of the exterior of our home in the summer of 2009. This included replacement of siding, windows and trim appropriate for a 1915 home (including the removal of lead paint), installation of a water table at the base of the exterior of the home, insulation on the sidewalls around the house, and repairs to facia boards at several locations.

Our experience with Josh and his company was superb. From the beginning he was very patient and helpful in thinking through the different possibilities. We own a 1915 home in NE Portland that had aluminum siding on it since the early 1970’s. He answered every question or inquiry promptly and completely. When the actual work started, we were continually impressed with the high quality of his work, his attention to detail, and his good nature. Josh was always very conscientious and courteous. On occasion when we pointed something out to him, he was very responsive.

We have lived in our home for over 10 years now and have done several significant remodels or renovations. Josh and his company stand out as one of the best contractors we have dealt with. It was also great that he stuck to his bid and completed the project on time and on budget. Furthermore, Josh communicated well with us and kept us updated on the status of the project.

We would highly recommend Eight Inch Nails Construction to anyone considering doing home remodeling that requires carpentry work or just a good general contractor. Without a doubt we will call Josh again whenever we have such needs arise again.
