“I highly recommend Empire Carpentry! They are highly skilled and wonderful to work with as well as being experts in the trade.”


​Mary Spitzmiller, Owner of Deines Custom Door, Inc.

“When my 1897 home in Old Town burned, Empire Carpentry was the clear choice to hire to restore it to its original state. They are the front-runners in historical restoration.


Kendra Melson, Fort Collins, Colorado

“Kevin and Terry are great guys. I could not have done the project without them.”


​Jim Burrill, Sherman Hill Technical

“I have been meaning for the longest time to write Empire a thank-you note for your work on our home this past summer. One good thing about being procrastinators, we are more certain than ever that we made the right decision in choosing you for our remodel. We love it more and more each day — and now that the cold temperatures are here, we can objectively say that our heating bill has dropped by almost 50% with our new doors, windows, and thick insulation layer under the stucco.

But I want to mention some other things about the process and the workmanship. Most of all, we both appreciate the quality of the work — every time the doors close, there's that gratifying vacuum seal. The windows are beautiful and plumb, and there may be a classier bathroom somewhere in Fort Collins, but I've never had such an elegant one. It makes me happy each time I take a shower. Your insistence on the highest quality work was evident early-on: whenever we (or you) were not satisfied with anything, from the plumber's replacement of the spigot to the operation of the bathroom fan to the texture of the paint, there was never a need to justify or prove that something needed fixing — you saw what we saw and immediately rectified it. Amazing — always responsive, always courteous, always professional — during those times when larger unforeseen complications arose, when we needed a mediator, or we were stressed about staying within our limited budget. I've never worked with a contractor who returns phone calls so promptly and who stops by every day, always making it clear that your satisfaction is his highest priority. As a result, we got what we'd hoped for, and more.

“I had a dream to move a house 11 miles from Loveland to Ft. Collins. Kevin Murray helped me find the right resources and then negotiated with the City of Ft. Collins to make it a reality. They worked exactly the way I wanted and allowed me to do things that I could do myself. Highly recommended, if you have an old house or a remodel, Kevin and Terry will help you at costs that are reasonable."

“I wanted to thank the entire team for being so professional and easy to work with on the project. I appreciate that initial quote was the eventual amount billed as I know that when working on older homes, things are never as they seem. This was such a low stress and enjoyable experience for me as I love the outcome and know the windows will last another 100 years."
