I got a referral from an interior designer to contact Eric – He came to take an over view of my huge mess & tiny closet areas – he totally changed my life as going from a 2 bedroom to a very small 1 bedroom was a big adjustment – not only was the result great but my favorite was when I called him to ask a question after he was done and he was very nice about wanting to help – that seems to be unusual these days – I was delighted and would recommend him highly!
I was referred to Eric by my real estate agent. I had just moved from a 2100 square foot house to a 585 square foot condo. The walk in closet was spacious, but with only closet maid wire shelving, the space needed to be utilized more efficiently. It was important to me to really take advantage of space for storage and to have it also look nice. Eric was very patient in discussing ideas with me and helping me get a visual of how the finished product would look. He did make a couple minor mistakes, but went the extra mile to get it right, even coming back free of charge to move my hanging bars to where I had originally wanted them. If you want something super custom, I’d definitely recommend Eric the Closet Guy. I know I got much better quality for much less money than I would have going with one of the big closet chains. This is definitely a niche market!
We had just purchased a home in Mercer Island and were at the tail end of an exhausting remodel. We realized that something still needed to be done about the wire shelving closet situation in our kids rooms, so we searched Craigslist and came across Eric’s ad. We were looking for quality closets at an affordable price, and we wanted to avoid the high-pressure sales of the corporate closet people. We found Eric to be responsive, service-oriented, knowledgeable, polite, and professional. He installed 4 amazing custom closet systems in our home with exacting measure. Eric is a true “old-world” craftsman in my opinion; he is meticulous in his work and it is evident that he genuinely cares about the customer, and the final product. Eric went out of his way to be sure he met our timeline expectations, and he even called several days after the installation to be sure we remained satisfied. Eric far exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend his services.
Our experience with Eric was very good: we wanted to have cabinets for our laundry, and he was able to design a solution that had competitive price, looked good, and has lasted very well (6 months so far, zero problems). Everything went well including timeline, budget, communication; he went above and beyond our expectations.
This in contrast with 2 alternatives, bigger companies we had worked with earlier: one that was close to a catastrophe (with astronomical separate installation cost; blocking of crawl space access despite having pointed it out to company etc etc), and another one that worked ok with cabinetry but was much delayed and slightly over budget.
So: not only is Eric very good at what he does, he is much better than all other options we had tried before.
My Wife and I contacted Eric a few weeks ago after meeting with two other closet companies. He first talked with us about the outcome we wanted showing us pictures from his hundreds of jobs to help us imagine how things might turn out. We were particularly impressed with the built in dressers he builds. The other two companies didn’t have anything close. And his drawers were works of art. Based on the answers to the questions he asked he quickly work out a very impressive design that included built in drawers. Elaborate shoe shelving in an elegant textured wood grain. The price was very reasonable, but I would warn that drawers do ad allot to the cost. A few weeks later he called to schedule an install date. He arrived on time. Things went very smoothly and no mess to contend with. The end result was spectacular. I do not believe I could get this kind of detail from anyone else. We would be glade to recommend Eric to anyone.
Eric did 3 different closets for me. The masterpiece was a large empty space that I had created as an extra master bedroom closet. It was a blank palette and Eric transformed it into a thing of beauty. What I wanted was challenging, but he delivered, with a few shared laughs along the way. It is a beautiful cabinet-look closet now! I love that his drawers are built as dovetail boxes and that the large cabinet enclosures do not hang on the walls (they sit on the ground instead; much more stable). Hard to find that with other big-name vendors. The other two closets were done with lower-end materials but still high quality, and all at a fair price. I would recommend Eric to anyone. He has great attention to detail and with a background in remodeling he is knowledgeable on the necessary construction concepts and application.
We have a large laundry/mudroom area that had been begging for a built in storage system for year, but having been through a large remodel a few years ago, I was hesitant to initiate a new project in our house. While searching the internet for ideas however, I found Eric The Closet Guy’s website. I realized immediately that he would be able to build a system that was both functional and beautiful. We called him and he came out within days, returned with diagrams and an estimate within a week, and installed the whole thing within a month or so. It looks amazing and is extremely well built. I would not hesitate to use him again. Not only does he do high quality work but he is honest, prompt and very professional.
