Material Choices: Wood, Metal, or Vinyl – Your Call

Choosing the material for your New Orleans patio covers is like picking the right outfit for your space. With Rick’s Carpentry, you can choose between wood, aluminum, or vinyl. Wood adds a classic touch, aluminum brings durability, and vinyl is all about low maintenance.

I needed a laundry room door replaced and Rick came out to my home expeditiously to assess the situation and to give me a quote. The price was very reasonable and in fact was the same as his estimate; no surprises there. Rick and his associate, Chris, came out early to my home and got to work immediately. The old door and frame were removed without issue and the new door and frame professionally installed. Both Rick and Chris were very collaborative and kept me informed as to the progress. The door looks fantastic and will no doubt increase the overall value of the home. As a bonus, the old door and all the old trim were taken away and the laundry room cleaned up better than it was when they first arrived. Honest, professional, collaborative: it all adds up to great value. I appreciate having a contractor who does quality work on time and in a most friendly, collaborative manner. I would recommend Rick's Carpentry LLC to anyone who needs carpentry work done.

Professional experience from start to finish. Showed up exactly on time and got to work replacing my front door. Work quality was excellent as well, and made sure I saw everything working properly before departing. Will use again for any future jobs.

Rick and Chris were a pleasure to work with and I would absolutely hire them again for any carpentry needs at my home. Rick showed up on time for an initial walkthrough and promptly delivered a reasonable, itemized estimate. He and his workers showed up a week later (as scheduled and on time each day) and did a great job replacing a privacy fence and gate, deck, and adjusting some of our home’s doors. Overall a great experience and would highly recommend.

Rick is professional, responsive and stands behind his work. He installed doors for me at 2 different properties and each time he showed up when he said he would; did a great job and left the work site clean. His prices are fair and his work is great. I highly recommend him

We had 2 older wooden decks that needed replacement. Rick and his people came in and very quickly built 2 new Trex porches that are fantastic. I should have paid them a bonus.
