I am Joseph Fratto , owner of Woods by Designs. I have been in the building trades since 1979 and have over 30 years experience in all facets of the construction industry. I was introduced to tools and job sites at a very early age and have been in it ever since. At the age of 22 I was introduced and taught by a retired gentleman who was employed at Ethan Allen Furniture on the aspects of making furniture. I listened and learned a great deal and I've put those skills to use today. I was a resident in Florida from 1979 -1993 working carpentry and drywall through out the state. In 1993 I joined the Carpenters Union Local 87 in Minniapolis MN and worked there for the past 18 years. There I was proud to have par-taken in several high profile projects . General Mills Headquarters, IDS Towers, The Guthrie Theater, Mr Kenvin Garmetts residence. Randy Moss Residance and Mayo Clinic Rochester just to name a few. My projects have been recognized by HGTV, DIY ,Craftsman Craftsman Club of America. Handyman Magazine, Rockler, DeWalt and a few others.
In 2011 I decided it was time to return to the Sunshine State, warmer climate and to be a lot closer to my Parents . Once here I ,seen some off the works being performed and decided to get Woods-by-Designs started here. Fair pricing, quality work and excellent work ethic.
With my experience in working in many areas of the U.S. I learned that each regions decor and styles are different and people in different parts of the region like different things. I provide all carpentry services for Homeowners and Contractors for all their interior needs. What ever your carpentry needs are I can accomplish it. Residential or Commercial. .My Shop is located in the Holiday Tarpon Springs area and I will be serving the Tampa Bay area, looking forward to hearing from you for all your needs.

Work Description: Repair flaws made by original contractor to wooden deck.Comments: As a long time homeowner, we have dealth with many contractors/tradesmen over the years. By far, 'WOODS-BY-DESIGNS' ranks as one of the very best that we have used. We only wish that Joe and his company had been known to us over the past years. Joe has my personal endorsement and will gladly recommend him.
