5.0 R. wells P. Rensselaer, NY

Quality work, fair price, very reliable

5.0 Bill W. Glenmont, NY

Brian is an excellent carpenter and handyman. He is personable, a good listener and excellent at pointing out solutions we had not considered. Brian took on 3 outdoor carpentry projects. His work is precise and the work quality is impeccable. He was always on time, cleaned up the work areas, and never raised his price. We are so pleased with his work, we offered him a much larger project for 2024. We highly recommend Brian Kopf and look forward to working with him in the future. Five stars!

5.0 Rich H. Clifton Park, NY

Brian is very professional and courteous and is able to do multiple types of work. He moved a pantry cabinet that I was unable to budge which involved cutting the vinyl plank floor and removing and reinstalling the molding. It was only an hour and a half job but Iâ m extremely pleased as Iâ ll now be able to fit a new larger refrigerator in the space between the cabinet and countertop. I highly recommend Brian.

5.0 Darlene F. Schenectady, NY

Brian was very friendly. He did a great job. He built 3 storage dressers for me and fixed a piece of siding. He was on time and was prepared with all the tools he needed. Iâ d call him again the next time a project comes up . I am very happy with the work he did for me

5.0 Kathleen A. Albany, NY

Brian was great. He purchased the storm door, picked it up from the store, took down our old storm door, disposed of it, did a beautiful job installing the new storm door, and cleaned everything up.

5.0 Michael C. Latham, NY

Brian called the day before to confirm. On the day of the job, he arrived on time. He started the job immediatley and finished the job on time with perfect results. He truly is quite experieinced in puttting in baseboard as well as I am sure in other aspects of carpentry. I highly recommend him

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
