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
, 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
, especially
's crew, to anyone.
Thanks,

at DAL was a good guy. He answered any calls and returned any calls very promptly even when he knew that we weren't happy with their work. He even came back to help when we had a future problem (due to their low quality work). However, the quality of their work was not good. The front door that they replaced still doesn't close correctly and the finish on the inside of the building looks like it was done by an amateur. And, they never re-hooked the building intercom correctly. Again,
was great and the owners of DAL should pay him a lot better. But, very poor quality construction. Would love to do business with
in the future if he worked for a company that did good work. Actually, I would be surprised if he still works there.

Deck Building reviews in Chicago

I don't typically write reviews, but my experience has been so TERRIBLE, that I feel strongly others should we warned about this company. We contracted with them to replace our old balconies and were told at the outset that the work would take 1-2 weeks. We are now moving on to week 5, and the company still has not completed its work (I can't really comment on quality, as it still is not done). They subcontracted the work on the stairs to another vendor, which has been a no-show. In the meantime, we can't go outside and the doors are bolted shut because the balconies are an unfinished hazard. Calls to the company go unheeded; and when I do talk to someone, I get the equivalent of a shoulder shrug. They have actually told me it is not their problem. Who says that? BOTTOM LINE: This company provides unbelievably bad service; they make promises to get your business that they can't or won't keep. Avoid the headache and stay away.

First of all, enough of the reviews where no work was performed. Come on people, I had no trouble getting a quick estimate. Its the busy season, they are probably a little slow since they are the best in the city. And asking for quotes for building a deck not in code...really?
I called

after another major competitor (on Angie's List) was super slow in getting back to me, meaning months and months. I wanted a detailed proposal so I could present it to my neighbors for approval. Our deck was very shaky and dangerous and was 50 years old.

the manager promptly met with me and during his walk through provided many more details that were left out by the competitor. Things like how electric will be handled (they moved it for us), warranty (full year), sealant (free

's weatherproofing), the scope of the work, and realistic time frame. In the end, the quote was about the same as the other company but I negotiated a little off.
My wife and I were having a baby and tons of things on our mind, so we wanted this done especially since baby's room off back of building where work was to be done.

got what he needed to start work from the city in a few weeks (maybe less??) and was ready to send a four man crew in early May. I could not believe he could pull this together so quick. Of course, we had tons of questions as the work was performed, and
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
always answered his phone immediately. We had some delays for rain but ultimately the job took 3 weeks all in, and was done before our baby was born to our delight.
The deck looked fantastic and felt solid as they only use the best wood. All to code and passed city inspection with flying colors. There were a few minor adjustments needed right after work was done and they were handled right away.
We could not be more happy with

1. Call and left a voicemail, received a call back within the day, the receptionist on the phone seemed confused as she thought we spoke earier and scheduled an appt. Which I had to explain that this is the 1st time I'm talking with her. Appt and time frame was scheduled.
2. Day of the appt - I called
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
1/2 hour into my scheduled time frame and was told that he should be there within the time frame. The hour comes and goes - I call back and now I'm told that he came by and saw the space and will be sending me a quote within 24 hours. I asked how does he know what I want since we have never talked about the scope of the project.
3. 72 hours later - i received the proposal and he quoted the pricing on my replacing my existing deck vs what I was looking to do. I wanted to remove my exisiting deck and replace it with a large deck (13x17). He missed the opportunity for a larger project.
Needless to say - I will not be using them as i found the entire process with this company unprofessional. How do you provide a quote when you haven't spoken to the homeowner about the scope of work - is my only question.

when we remodeled two of our exterior decks.

and his crew followed the plans and specifications to a tee and performed the work with a high degree of skill, workmanship and attention to detail. The final product was absolutely beautiful. They constructed custom flower beds, benches and a built- in structure for an oddly located hot tub. We were so pleased with

Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is very knowledgeable in construction matters and pointed out to us that the plans created by someone else, contained errors. The cabinets specified for the rooms were too wide, the towel closet was too big, the floor needed additional shoring and the electrical plans were wrong. Instead of proceeding with the work he took the time to consult with us and make sure that the project was completed correctly and within reasonable time limits. He has the best cabinet makers, tile guys, dry wall and painters that we have ever encountered. They are craftsmen but charged a reasonable and fair price for high quality finishes. Now, whenever we need anything done at our house, we call

. He has flood proofed our house, painted our house, installed a new gas grill, repaired cabinets (old ones), installed a wine cooling system with cabinets and counter tops (really beautiful) , replaced all of the doors and hardware in our entire house and is in the process of installing new outdoor lighting.

Porch Builders were fantastic. We had been looking to replace our garage deck for sometime and finally decided to make it happen.

came out promptly to assess the scope and turned around a very fair quote rather quickly. When we gave the green light, the guys started the next day! Unheard of, if you ask me.
The job was completed in about two days and

Again,
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Brothers solve problems. When one owns a building that is over 100 years old, there are always surprises. Often times, the surprises are not pleasant - especially plumbing. The repair of our windows was amazing. We had other estimates that were off the charts and we wanted to preserve our windows.
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Brothers were great. Our tenants appreciated their workmanship and their courtesy. We appreciate their professionalism, responsiveness and quality of work.
We highly highly recommend them

Getting an estimate was like pulling teeth. After numerous emails back and forth, I finally scheduled a day to meet with the estimator, but he never bothered to show up or contact me to reschedule. They apparently came out to look at the house the next week and I was finally given an estimate about 7 days after first initiating contact w/ them. Their web site says they provide estimates within 24 hours, so I had hoped for better service.
While the pricing was competitive, my follow up questions after receiving the quote were never answered. Ultimately I was fed up with the lack of communication and went with another provider.

First, the final product is a massive three-story porch complex that seems sound and passed the city inspection. It is a vast improvement on the old structure and it generally looks pretty good. So, the major objective was accomplished. Also, communication during the process was generally good.

's crew worked in January and February of 2014, two of the coldest and snowiest months on record. Unsurprisingly, the project took a little longer than expected. No big deal. However, I was a bit disappointed in the overall lack of attention to detail. The work was just a little rough around the edges. Maybe this was due to the freezing conditions.
Chicago Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
addressed some of the issues, but I was surprised to have to point out some of the problems. And my biggest gripe is the condition in which our yard was left following the work. I retrieved over 150 screws, broken saw blades, nails, etc., not to mention a window's worth of broken glass. And I gathered most of this only after someone had supposedly come to clean up. I realize it was a big job and the mini glacier in our back yard made an immediate clean up impossible.... but come on. That warrants a few demerits.
