“I met Dustin Wake about 2 years ago through a friend that had used him for some work on their house. I had a really bad experience with another carpenter who installed 38 replacement windows and 4 exterior doors for me all 2 years later not working properly. Dustin took the time to explain to me what was done wrong in the instillation process and how he could remedy them all in the most cost effective way possible rather than fully replace them. He went to work on all of them and fixed them all and I can say 2 years later they all still run perfectly. Least to say when I needed new windows in my own home I had Dustin install them. He has also done various handyman work throughout these 2 years on my units and home he has always been a pleasure to work with and also my tenants all love him. I highly recommend Wakes Carpentry to anyone looking for reliable Carpenter.”


“I have known Tom Wake for over thirty years. I highly recommend him for any work any that needs to be done. As a company we recommend Wakes Carpentry for jobs big and small throughout the seacoast area. I find them to be very reasonable and capable.”


“I hired Dustin roughly three years ago to figure out why my gazebo was falling apart. Dustin discovered no joist hangers were used on the frame and due to it be low to the ground figured the builder just decided not to do them. Dustin took a shovel out and began to dig around every joist which there were a lot as it is the shape of a octagon and installed the hangers after fixing everything. We picked a composite decking to replace the old decking and he also installed that. Everything looks perfect and we can enjoy our gazebo again. Anyone looking for a company that cares about their craft and customers should consider Wakes Carpentry.”


“I first met Tom in 1991 when he and his brother Dan built my parent’s home in Hampton. The quality of the craftsmanship, expertise, and relationship he had with my parents from the beginning to end of the project speaks volumes as my mom was beyond a perfectionist, and the home today, remains as beautiful as the day they moved in. Tom’s kindness, knowledge, and vision for quality and the aesthetics is truly what stands out; as time and changes in the industry march on, Tom’s eye for all of that, combined with his values, trustworthiness and integrity are what make him and his company stand out. On the personal side of things, I am proud and honored most of all that aside from the fact that Tom is the first person I would choose (and have recommended to family, friends, etc.) to build my home or addition, that after working together for many years from 1991-1996, he and his family and I remain “family” and close, together for all of the milestones in life. That alone is a gift and testament to the kind of man Tom Wake is. I am, on so many levels, honored to give this testimonial.”


Just after buying a house on the seacoast last April, I started the process of trying to find subcontractors to help with the renovations. Tom was the first carpenter/builder who actually called me back and showed up when he said he would to see the house and discuss my plans. After preparing the initial estimate, Tom came back to the house to review and discuss it in detail. It didn’t take long for me to feel comfortable with Tom and his commitment to the project. He started the work when he said he would and we maintained a very good working relationship during the process. I would be happy to show our renovations to any prospective clients.


Wakes Carpentry just completed a 3 month renovation of our home. We took an old attached garage and made it into a Master Bedroom Suite with bath, walk in closet and laundry area. It came out magnificent and better than I imagined. They also replaced many windows, repaired roofing problems, ceilings, doors, crown molding, base boards and new siding for the entire home. We had a new Heating and Air conditioner with 3 zones installed and a new water heater. The work went on and on. But the one thing that can be said is that all sub contractor’s that Tom uses are excellent and we passed every inspection with Town of Hampton. The relationship was such that Tom listened to our needs and concerns and performed the tasks of this total remodel in an exemplary manner. We are very pleased in the way the whole project was handled. We recommend Wakes Carpentry for you home repairs or remodels. We want to Thank all the people who worked for us and for your excellent work. My home is beautiful and no longer a Handy Man style home. It is as professionally done as if it was built new
