Why Choose Us?

Craftsman Direct is locally owned and operated since 2005
Craftsman Direct is a family-owned and locally operated home improvement contractor which is not nationally franchised. However, we do have two offices: one in the Triangle and one in the Triad. We have been in business for over 15 years in the Triangle.

One Person to Oversee your Project from Beginning to End
No more managing multiple sub-contractors on your own. We do that for you. Our Project Manager's, Doug in the Triad, or Kevin, Randy or Shane in the Triangle will personally visit your home and give the FREE estimate, supervise the project, and handle all details of the project from beginning to end, to ensure the complete customer satisfaction.

FREE, Detailed, and Professional Estimates
Doug, Kevin, Randy or Shane, will estimate at our customer's convenience. There are no "middle-men", estimators, or salespeople. Each contract will detail the scope of work and will specify the exact products/materials that will be used. NO down-payment is ever required.

Quality Work
Most of our repair teams have been working with the company for 5+ years. Each repair team is personally guided and trained by our Project Managers. Each project will be completed in the contracted time frame and will be monitored by either Doug, Kevin, Randy or Shane from beginning to final clean up. There will also be a final walkthrough with the customer to ensure complete satisfaction.

Licensed, Fully Insured, and Workers Compensation Certified
Many local companies do not carry insurance to protect customers against damage done to their home. We also respect our employees and ensure they are protected. Other companies see this as a way to cut overhead and minimize operational costs. We do not believe in cutting corners whatsoever.

A+ Rating With The Better Business Bureau - 9 Years No Complaint!
Craftsman Direct has an excellent and impeccable record with the BBB. Take a look at our BBB profile.

This is the second time I've used Craftsman Direct for handyman work. I had my deck sanded and stained, exterior power washed, and front porch cement re-painted (plus huge crack removed). After working with these guys a second time, I can confidently say they do not cut corners...

I cannot say enough good things about this company. After [another contractor] screwed up our back door install TWICE...[Craftsman Direct] came in...and we finally have a beautiful door that works. They were on time, courteous, and professional.
