“Friendly and polite, dilligent and thorough, attention to fine detail, flexible, strong communication skills, and most importantly, excellent workmanship. This is the best description I can give for A2Z Carpentry and Ivan Jimenez.

The jobs Ivan was contracted for included: replacement of doors, repairs to skirtings and doorjambs, installation of picture rails, fixing of fanlights, installation of a flyscreen, and general repairs to existing woodworks to an old Federation-style house.

Additionally, although this was out of scope, Ivan was more than happy to project manage the repair and replacement of some damaged leadlights of our front door and entrance.

Seeing Ivan at work, it is evident he has pride in his workmanship and he enjoys what he is doing. If/when I have any future need for carpentry work, I would have no hesitation to give the job to Ivan and A2Z Carpentry.
Ivan, it was a pleasure to do business with you and an honour to have met you!!

(PS – my family kinda miss seeing you around here!!)”

Anthony (Chief Executive - Imagine)

“We were very impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship provided by Jorge and his father. We received a number of quotes for our carpentry work but decided to go with Jorge even though his quote was a little more than some of the others. The reason we did this was because we were impressed with the time and effort that he took to understand what we were looking for and seemed to know exactly how to achieve this. I’m glad we did! We are very pleased with the quality, professionalism and workmanship of our new office door, window and skirting. We will be using them again in the future and highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality carpentry.”

“I employed Ivan to repair the upper side wall of my house extension. I found his work to be excellent, with real attention to detail. He was punctual, explained the process as he worked and kept to the agreed budget. I would definitely employ him again.”

Mark Verhoeven (Managing Director - Glider Pty Ltd)

“As the owner and proprietor of GLIDER PTY LTD – 197 Victoria Street, Potts Point Sydney NSW 2010, I have no hesitation in recommending the absolute first-rate service of a highly competent carpenter.

From the first moment I spoke with Ivan, he made an excellent first impression. From liaising over the phone through to organizing a time to meet, he made sure he followed through with a thorough series of steps.

He arrived earlier to the destination then I did, and when I arrived he had already set up and arranged a quote for the job I had barely spoken about. To me this was something that not many other carpenters would offer, obviously surpassing the common misconception of the day to day carpenter in Australia.

With-in a few hours, Ivan had carefully hung the doors I needed, and made sure that it was done down to a tee. I was almost telling him its ok ! You can leave it like that, but he insisted to perfect the job !

A true craftsman.

Friendly, understanding & a down right pleasure to have around.

Thanks Ivan ! Hopefully we will be seeing you soon. Please drop by for a coffee and lunch, its on the house!”

Ross Young ( Chief Executive - Sydney Catchment Authority)

“Ivan has worked at my apartment four times over the last three months. Ivan’s workmanship is excellent and methodical with a good eye for detail.

He offers suggestions which either saves money or adds to a superior outcomes.

I have found Ivan to reliable and honest and he has never let me down.

I would not hesitate to use Ivan again as he is a trustworthy and thoroughly professional tradesman.”

Edwin and Renee

“Ivan had recently carried out extensive repairs and renovation for our house including replacing water damaged battens and reinforcing the ceiling of the deck before laying out covering, and putting up an extension for a new laundry and storage space.

We found Ivan as someone we could trust to seek practical and cost-effective advice on all sorts of carpentry jobs for our house. We are so pleased with his friendly attitude and attention to detail and would certainly recommend him to our families and friends.”


“I needed a few big jobs done around the house so I sought the services of A2Z Carpentry. I couldn’t be happier with the quality finish.

1. Deck and Pergola: This is now a feature of the house.

2. Restoring old single garage/shed: Sheeting it up both inside and outside, installing new french door. Another superb job.

3. Attic ladder and floor space: Another tough job which turned out to be very cost effective for us. Great finish.

From my experience Jorge takes great pride in his work. Treats it as if it was his own. Very Meticulous. No shortcuts taken. Courteous and punctual. Always approachable. Glad I have found a tradesman that I can rely on. Thanks A2Z. Thanks Jorge.”

Elisabeth Wicks (Cromer Wicks - Solicitors)

“I employed Ivan to make some skirtings for a circular staircase. They had never been put into the house because it was too difficult for the original builders. Two other carpenters had come to inspect and made it clear that they could not (or would not) do it.

Ivan sourced some special skirting material and brought it from overseas. The job was done on time and with great attention to detail. He is polite, courteous and reliable.

I would highly recommend him for any type of carpentry work as I found him a meticulous tradesman and highly competent.

I would be happy to confirm my recommendation verbally if that is required.”
