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 nearly 10 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 (add their pictures) 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.

Numerous Satisfied Customers
Don't just take our word for it - see what our satisfied customers have been saying on Angie's List - Google+ - BBB - Houzz - Yelp and our Website.

Reliability, Dependability, and Our Commitment to Excellence
Being a local family-owned business, the ability to communicate with our customers is key. We are available to answer any questions after hours and on weekends. Bottom line, our customers come first.

You have my word on it!

From the first call the owner Lee was polite and responded quickly....After calling at least 10 Angies List A companies he was the only response that did not say my job was too small to bother. The work was done very well.... I can't say enough good about them!!!
