About


Need some attentive, reliable Raleigh carpenters for a home improvement project?


Old Raleigh Carpentry, LLC is here to serve! Founded in late 2014 by old Broughton High School friends, Robert Chew and Derek DeBank, Old Raleigh Carpentry, LLC is a boutique design/build company focused on custom carpentry projects, remodeling and home renovations. We have a passion for older, vintage houses and embrace the challenges they present in a renovation.

Between us, we have over 40 years of carpentry know-how, which we’ll use to calculate and accomplish your remodeling goals. We handle jobs of all sizes, but mainly smaller residential projects –  from wood rot remediation, to custom built-ins, to interior trim carpentry – yet can also handle limited corporate projects. Despite our many years of experience, our prices are fair and competitive. With our nimble 2-man crew you’re guaranteed our undivided attention until your project is finished.

(We only work one job at a time – there’s a premium for such personalized service.)
