Colossians 3: 23-24

Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord

rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord

you will receive the reward of the inheritance.

It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.

[1Peter 4:10-11]








Now among the Lawrenceville, GA carpenters & serving the Atlanta Metro Area and surrounding communities with exceptional customer service, dependability, and integrity and centrally located in Lawrenceville.  I will also be affiliated with my brother Gary Gervais Talbot owner and sole proprietor of

Excellence in Carpentry  located in Suwanee. Gary was awarded the Angie's List "Super Service Award" in 2013 & 2016 and continues to provide Excellence in Carpentry. As one of your Lawrenceville Carpenters, I'm excited to provide my services to the local community.

                  I started my venture into carpentry 34 years ago, and over those years I've acquired a wealth of knowledge in not only the new construction aspect of building, but also gained knowledge in commercial work, extensive remodeling, and materials sales. Carpentry has always been a passion for me, and a desire for excellence in workmanship is "second nature". `

                  Feel free to explore the hundreds of pictures found on my website, which will show mostly "before", "during" and "after" pictures of most all my projects. Whether it's having done kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, composite decking, screened in porches, siding, minor to major rot repairs, storm doors, entry doors, replacement windows, new construction windows, patio doors, basement remodeling, attic remodeling, custom window seats, custom shelving or something as simple as replacing a door knob, the goal has always been to please the customer from start to finish.

                  My work area will generally cover a 20 to 30 mile radius outside of Lawrenceville. Which will include the following areas and surround communities: East of Atlanta, Alpharetta, Auburn, Braselton, Buford, Chamblee, Cumming, Dacula, Dunwoody, Duluth, Flowery Branch, Gainesville, Johns Creek, Lilburn, Monroe, Norcross, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Snellville, Sugar Hill,  & Suwanee,

  Mark Moncino [Angie's List Review]

We have used Crossworks Carpentry now, for 4-5 projects (and in the process of adding a 6th job) .... and we could not be happier with the responsiveness, the professionalism, the pricing, and the outcomes -- a TRUE carpenter! the work is just excellent

Description of work:

custom kitchen cabinet addition and cedar deck banister replacement



  Angela Robinson [Angie's List Review]

Mike showed up when he said he would, and put in a full days work each day. He was reliable, professional and very personable. We added a few additional work items to the project and he proved to be very flexible and able to accommodate us with ease. We appreciate his attention to detail and his desire to make sure the customer is satisfied upon completion of the job. We would definitely hire Mike again and plan to hire him next year for the second phase of our upstairs floor project.

Description of work:

We have used Mike before to renovate our kitchen. We were so happy with his work that we decided to hire him again to renovate our stairs. This was part one of a bigger project to renovate the entire second floor, and we wanted to start with our creaky stairs.



  Marjorie Rosen  [Angie's List Review]

It is gorgeous, well-built, peaceful... We love it! It is sturdy and well done. Mike is a perfectionist which we greatly appreciate!

Description of work:

Mike designed a porch to be built.



  Cathy Kosmanski [Angie's List Review]

Very happy with finished projects!

Description of work:

I had several specialty carpentry projects to be done, including installing ship lap on a feature wall. Mike orders, picks up, and brings materials to project. Things go great from set up to clean up, and work is plumb, square, caulked and nicely finished. Price is a little above average, but so is the work.



  Richard Trinkwalder [Angie's List Review]

Fantastic, while looking for a GC for a basement, I found Mike with Crossworks. He provided sound advice and guidance through the process to where I hired all the subs and let Mike take care of the carpentry. Even his general carpentry work building walls and other build outs looked like finished work with tight joints. Mike took a lot of pride in his work, and our finished basement shows. I would recommend Mike for any carpentry job.


  Clarice Booth  [Angie's List Review]

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Mike Gervais of CrossWorks Carpentry. Mike Gervais's knowledge and attention to detail is exceptional. His carpentry skills and the quality of his craftsmanship is unquestionably of high quality. In working with Mike on this project, it's apparent that he holds himself to a very high professional standard. He has the innate ability to listen to a client, grasp what they are attempting to communicate, and then execute it flawlessly. I found his work ethics to be impeccable. He was punctual, self accountable, and maintained detailed records. The project was on time and within budget. I would be honored to collaborate with him in future projects. I would, without hesitation, recommend Mike Gervais of CrossWorks Carpentry to anyone within range of his serves area.


  Lou Anne Purnell [Angie's List Review]

Wow, Mike is spectacular. He replaced the decking with Trex (I'll never have to paint it again) and the 
posts are now poly (they won't rot ever). I have gotten loads of compliments and feel so much better 
about my home. Wonderful craftsmanship and service, excellent in all aspects!

Have you found yourself staring at a rotted door frame or perhaps that unsightly trim up high every day as you arrive home from work? You know it needs attention but who would take on such a small task and how much does it actually cost? Well, whether it involves the rotted base of your door frame, window sills, or just any exterior trim in general that needs a little touch up without having to replace an entire door or window...I can help! I always provide free estimates and I'd be more than happy to take away any eye sore. Give me a call!  770-714-0275
