We are an online homeowner consultation business helping people nationwide make informed decisions about their contracting, real estate, and home-related concerns.
Why We Consult
For many Americans, houses and property represent the single largest financial investment of their lives. And yet, modern homeowners have a nearly unprecedented lack of access to honest, reliable information about that investment.
HONEST CARPENTER CONSULTING offers a solution to this problem.
Our trade expert consultants can serve as an informed, impartial source for answers to home-related questions, giving clients the information they need to make important decisions confidently and wisely.
How We Consult
HONEST CARPENTER consultations take the form of 25-minute PHONE OR VIDEO CHATS between clients and experts.
Our current rate is: $60 PER CONSULTATION.
PLEASE NOTE: Whether consulting by phone or video, clients will always be best served by providing several photos to our experts through the booking process before the call, as well as any relevant documents (estimates, home inspection reports, etc…)
What we do and do not consult on
Are you concerned that you have a potentially critical problem in your home? Honest Carpenter consultants can offer an informed, impartial opinion on the situation before you approach contractors, thereby helping you identify and avoid predatory repair schemes.

Estimate and Proposal Analysis
Good contracting projects begin with good estimates and proposals. Our experts can analyze the construction elements of your project estimates (focusing on scope of work, time frame and cost) and help identify vague or disconcerting language and fees.
