“They live up to their name – they are true craftsmen. You only have to step inside the porch and look up to the beautiful ceiling. It truly is a work of art".
Michael Shetter, Fairfeild Harbour NC
To say Coastal Craftsmen did an outstanding job is an understatement. The house was damaged in Hurricane Irene and was vacant for 4 years before we purchased it. FEMA raised the house 9 feet turning a cute house to UGLY. Coastal Craftsmen came in, listened to our ideas and turned our vision into a home. They added a front porch, expanded the rear deck, put on a new roof, replaced all the windows, and took a small crawl space, raised the roof, and turned it into a 600 sqft loft. Inside they refaced and replaced the fireplace, removed a wall to create an open floor plan, put in a new kitchen, new upstairs bath, remodeled the down stairs bath. Re-designed the HVAC, updated the wiring, replaced the plumbing, installed hardwood floors throughout and painted. In addition the Coastal Craftsmen staff were great. They go out of their way to keep the job site clean. THEY LISTENED to us, made suggestions ... then did what was needed and did it ON TIME. If you choose Coastal Craftsmen you will not be disappointed.

“Excellent experience from Britt to all of his employees. Felt we were getting the “best.” We were so impressed with the precise workmanship and how clean every day ended with debris taken from the yard and not left behind. On time workers, etc. and best of all our beautiful kitchen that I love to cook in daily. Also, Britt made it possible to have a double oven installed in a retro-fitted masonry wall. My husband and I are so happy with the kitchen – we will highly recommend Coastal Craftsmen to others.”

"They always called before a worker came, always informed me of schedule changes. There were no unpleasant surprises. I felt comfortable with all the various workers in my home and they each cleaned up before leaving. If Coastal Craftsmen said they would do something, they did it and did it well. I highly recommend Coastal Craftsmen. They showed respect for my home and for being in my space. They were very accommodating in working with glitches with my insurance company. Their work is topnotch. It was such a pleasant experience working with them that I hated to see it end!”

“Britt and his crew will do big and small projects and do them well. I have contacted him with a follow-up punch list and it was resolved quickly instead of just taking the check and moving on. I believe Britt and Coastal Craftsmen are the best people to use for home renovations in the New Bern area because they can be counted on to do what they say they will and do it well.”
Kathleen Bissonette, New Bern NC
We were very pleased with this company which finished our room over our garage. Brit was knowledgeable and helpful with planning and choices to be made. Jeff, project manager, was fantastic. He gave us daily updates and consulted with us frequently. Every member of the construction crew were very polite and helpful. They were surprisingly quiet and undisruptive. The work was of high quality and completed within estimated timeline. They left the job clean and beautiful .

Can't say enough positive things about Coastal Craftsmen! We had the entire main floor of our home remodeled. It was a several month project, but worth every painful minute-and every dollar! Britt took our vision and made it reality. We've now lived in it for several months and couldn't be happier. We smile when we come downstairs in the morning, looking at our beautiful home, that is now open, light and bright.
Thanks to Britt and everyone who worked with us!

“They took an architect’s basic drawing and coupled it with their creative vision to create one of the finest screened-in porches in New Bern.”
P. Jones, New Bern NC
"I found the workmen employed by Coastal Craftsmen to be very skilled at what they do. They were very professional in my presence, but as we got to know each other, they also exhibited a fantastic sense of humor, concern for me as an individual and most importantly a sense of ownership of the project. As I came to know them, I felt confident I could leave home for an appointment. Net-net, I trusted them explicitly. When I again contracted Coastal Craftsmen to redo my kitchen, which was a complete “gut and redo” except for appliances, I gave them a deadline of three weeks because I had to host an Easter luncheon. They finished on the day they said they would be done! How awesome is that in this day and age”

"I can’t believe the great job you have done on the trim. Unbelievable! What a difference in craftsmanship… really impressive!"
Anne M., Oriental NC
"Britt Warren and Coastal Craftsmen did a very extensive interior renovation of our home in Oriental in 2012 -- basically gutted everything, including taking down several walls, tearing out the floors, the bathrooms, and the entire kitchen. I am a very picky client with particular ideas about configuration and finishes, and a stickler for detail. Britt welcomed my direct involvement and was extremely responsive to my requests, offering good suggestions when it was impossible to do exactly what I wanted. His cost estimate was very detailed and well explained -- when I asked for changes, our communication was excellent and there were absolutely no surprises. As the general contractor, he set high expectations for his subs and monitored their performance closely. When something was not up to his high standards, he ensured it was re-done and checked for quality. The portfolio of subcontractors he uses is outstanding, especially Mindy Faraci from Creekside Cabinets in New Bern -- she is an expert in kitchen design with an eye for getting the most from small spaces. Britt's crew was on time every day, worked very hard, and kept the job site as tidy as possible. Completely trustworthy and dependable, they ensured the safety of my home and possessions during the whole process. The result is spectacular -- even more beautiful and functional than I had imagined! I highly recommend Britt Warren and Coastal Craftsmen, and will call on them again myself in the future.”
Susan Collyar, New Bern NC
We were fortunate to obtain a recommendation to contact the people at Coastal Craftsmen when discussing a home project of a room addition. I can not say enough about how much we enjoyed the entire experience and the folks that work with this outstanding company. Everyone was very professional and hard working. Someone was in contact every day either by phone or in person. Discussion was ongoing regarding any changes in plans. At the end of each work day, crew went out of their way to clean area. Excess supplies and debris always taken care of. The entire project went much faster then we anticipated and worked stayed on target. So very happy with our new room and would highly recommended Coastal Craftsmen! Thanks Britt, Jeff , Johnny and your crew!!
Fred Jupitz, New Bern NC
Britt came highly recommended, and we were not disappointed with the quality of workmanship. Their attention to detail made it a very pleasant experience in our kitchen remodel. Our remodeling included kitchen expansion, hardwood floors throughout the entire house, created a powder room...
We had the pleasure of working with Jeff, project manager, and their kitchen designer, Mindy.
