Everything went well. I am pleased with the work and the fast response to my little complaints. Complaints: they pieced the facing on the bottom step instead of giving me a full board; the handicap rail installed was not steady enough; a nail pierced the plastic covering on one of the rails.
They replaced the facing; they installed metal railings, which are really sturdy; they sanded and painted the nail pierce. Everything is to my satisfaction. The carpenter was wonderful--old school European. Would definitely use them again.

Worked with DAL on a basic design (dimensions, type of wood, type of spindles, skirting, etc.) and they ran with it from there.
Showed up on first day of construction, took down the old staircase, dug for the concrete piers, poured it and got the basic framing done. Efficient, no

around, totally professional.
Next day it was the decking and rails and soon thereafter the stairs and spindles and skirting.
All the carpentry was top-notch, as was daily clean-up. The crew couldn't have been nicer or more professional.

, who oversaw the project, was accessible and explained everything.
Oh, and the price was right.
Love the results. Couldn't be happier with DAL. Look forward to using them in the future.

I really wanted to like
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
.
My initial experience with
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was very positive. The job was scoped in a reasonable amount of time, price wasn't bad, and work began very quickly after the contract was signed.
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was very responsive, courteous, and professional throughout the whole process.
However,
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and the crew that did the work didn't seem to be in sync with
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, and were unreliable.
Although I appreciated the work starting as soon as it did,
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told me they'd start the following week. No big deal, but it'd be nice to know when things are actually happening.
I also felt like I had to stay on top of them to follow my architect's specifications, which ultimately were not followed in some cases. However, the work has been described as "sufficient," and I'm hoping that since these guys do this kind of work all the time that they made the right sizing and materials choices. I'm suspicious of the bolts used to fasten the beams to the posts (treated lumber) as well - I'm not sure if all of them are galvanized. Nonetheless, I will be keeping a sharp eye on things.
Hopefully I don't have to try and get them back out to fix anything as I can't imagine it'd go smoothly.
Lastly, two electrical junction boxes that were removed to do the work were never reconnected, which I was told would be done several times on specific days. It never happened, and they have my money, which was a dumb move on my part. I've given up and will do the work myself. Again, not the biggest issue as I do electrical work all the time (and I trust myself to do it the right way), but it's just another case of not doing what you said you'd do, when you said you'd do it.
I don't mind when schedules change, that's just how business works sometimes. But to say you're going to show up at a certain time, or do certain work, and you just don't without informing the customer directly and you make me chase you, that's just bad business.

Initial condition of the deck wood was neglected; very dry and grey.

Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
did a very good job power washing and prepping the wood for the staining. The wash really breathed new life into the wood and made it look healthy again. The suggested stain looks great and appears to be holding up just fine. We did encounter some rain delays during the project, but the job was completed in an acceptable time frame.
The guys who came out were very timely, friendly, and able to answer all my questions (and share knowledge) as you'd expect from professional.
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
also very honest, motivated to please the customer, and driven to grow his business.
The only reason I went with a B on the quality of the work were:
1. There were some noticeable fan
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
where you could tell the power wash didn't quite get to the
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
of the wood.
2. As stated before, the wood was neglected and dry and I had to request a few areas be covered again as the wood really sucked up the stain and you could tell the color was slightly off from the surrounding areas. There were NO complaints at all from from the crew that some areas needed additional more stain after a few days.
I recommend
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
for quality work, staying on budget, accurate quote, honesty, and professionalism.

I selected
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, owner of
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, for an estimate to remove and replace my two story wooden back porch and attached roofing because of his Angie's List rating by his customers, and the number and quality of the reviews he has received over the last several years. I hired
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
because of the quality of work
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
has done for his customer's in my area. Not knowing what to expect, I knew the City of Chicago has very strict porch construction guidelines. I printed and read all 57 pages before meeting with
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
for the estimate. He was very professional and patient. He knew the city's laws and answered all of the questions I had from my research. He was thorough in explaining the construction process and made specific recommendations on caring for the structure upon completion of the job. Upon removal of the structure, masonry work on the back wall of the building was needed to ensure proper support of the porch. It was an additional and unexpected expense, but I was very happy that
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
brought it to my attention and made certain that I understood the importance of fixing the issue before proceeding with building the porch. It was a small price to pay for safety. We passed the city inspection. His crew is a reflection of
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. They were polite and respectful. They worked quietly and cleaned the construction area each day.
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
quickly made minor adjustments that I requested on the finishing. I highly recommend
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. I have received so many compliments from neighbors and strangers passing by on the beauty of my porch.

These guys are the best. They did a full rebuild of our outdoor space. It went from worst on the block to best in show. True artisans.

We would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to replace their deck! The workers are very knowledgeable, cleanly and punctual. They replaced an existing deck and in doing so sealed cracks underneath our limestone sills. Our roof was inspected for any abnormalities and once determined that we wouldn't need to replace our roof they installed a new deck. Upon sealing underneath the window sills, we haven't noticed further leaking. They are honest and work quickly. We certainly had other quotes but they were so reasonable that we did not look elsewhere.

Great Job. We bought the restoration deal on Angie's list. They contacted me within 2 business days to schedule and the work was completed within 2 weeks. This was a second story deck of an apartment building, which would normally have required coordination with the tenant to access it. But
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, the project lead, made sure his guys brought along a 20' extension ladder that enabled his workers to access without any involvement from me or the tenant. I would recommend
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked

Thanks,
