More Than Carpenters

More Than Carpenters provides basic home repairs and maintenance to qualified homeowners serving the elderly, single parents and the physically and financially challenged in our local communities. More Than Carpenters is not an emergency repair service nor can we accept projects with tight deadlines. We are a network of skilled, semi-skilled and general laborers serving as volunteers and can only accept and schedule projects based on the availability of our servants and the skill levels required. MTC does not purchase the materials for your project. We simply provide the labor. If the homeowner is not financially able to purchase the materials, we can refer the homeowner to agencies that may be able to assist with the purchase.
