"What a fabulous craftsman! His work is excellent, his prices are reasonable, he returns telephone calls and comes when he says he will. He makes wonderful suggestions," and you wouldn't have known my kitchen was being redone - no dust anywhere! He'll be coming back in the spring to replace my deck.

"We interviewed four contractors. The estimates were very close monetarily. We selected
because they said that the work could be done within" a few weeks. The work was done quickly and for the exact amount estimated.

We called 3 highly rated dock builders to get a price on building us a dock. The first company was very fast in replying but were trying to get us to build a fancy expensive dock even though we told them that was not what we were looking for - something more

and cost efficient. All the people at

totally understood our needs and provided us with a much more

dock that was far better priced with choice of natural wood or composite. They understood that timing was not an issue but price was. Thus, we accepted a better price with the knowledge that they would get to us when they could. Everything worked out great. the dock was actually above my expectations and we had extra pilings done in case we wanted them to install a lift later. Very glad we chose

Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
is a great communicator who answered my questions and made me feel secure that they would handle the job efficiently and effectively. It was easy as could be, I wasn't even home they came, they completed the work and called me to let me know it was complete. I came down, inspected.... it was perfect!

We were able to get a hold of
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
with no issues for quotes and to sign the contract and make our initial deposit and then never saw him again. Our contract stated he would submit the permit within 15 days which took months and then when the county required engineering drawings, nothing was ever resubmitted. It has been over six months of very little communication and no permit or any pilings/building for our dock. I can not emphasize enough to NOT use this contractor and to look elsewhere. He is not licensed and there is a good

you will never actually get your dock built which is a shame.

I guess
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
is doing well...too busy to return phone calls from serious buyers. I was looking for a quote for a double jet ski lift and contacted
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
. They rebuilt my dock 4 years ago so as a returning customer I would have thought they would be responsive. I spoke to someone in their office and they took my phone number. No one ever called me back. In fact, out of 5 dock/lift building companies, only 2 called me back. The work was done by another company.

From our first contact,
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
were professional and friendly. They responded immediately to our request for a quote and set up a time to meet us.
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out and discussed different options with us on how to site the lift on our dock since we already have a boat lift. He explained the advantages of changing to a 4 pole system. We purchased a 10,000 pound boat lift that is set up to hold two jetskis. If in the future, if we decide we want to use it as a boat lift instead, it will be an easy conversion.
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
quote was about $750 less than the only other quote we received...and his quote was for a higher rated lift (Pateco 10,000 lbs.). We contacted 5 companies for quotes and only 2 responded. The work was completed in less than 2 days.
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
also went over and above expectations when he greased our existing boat lift because it was making noise. We are very happy to have completed this project with no hassle, at a decent price, and a better product than what we had anticipated.

gets two thumbs up from us!

They were very unresponsive and non-committal regarding start and completion date. (gave them the ok and deposit 4 months prior to completion date) In retrospect the price i paid was on the high side. On the positive side, the work performed, as supervised by

, was excellent!

I specifically asked the sales person
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
whether their company did the work themselves because I didn't want it subbed out. Installer showed up and told me he'd worked for Superior Doors for 15 years. This was a lie.
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
later told me that yes ...the installer was a sub and no they hadn't mentioned this to me even though I had specifically requested that no sub-contractor be used on my job. The installer did a very sloppy job of installing the doors. You could see daylight under both doors when shut which kind of defeats the purpose of purchasing doors with R-17. He made a mess of my siding and caulk and did not re-caulk when he was done. When I later asked
Detroit Dock Building Contractors Provider Name Locked
about this he told me they weren't allowed to re-caulk when they removed your existing caulk......because why???? The installer unplugged my water pump (needs a ladder to plug and unplug) and gave me attitude when I asked him to plug it back in because he had to get his ladder out of the truck. He dinged up my siding and chipped paint off of it during the install. He left a huge mess in the driveway including lots of staples and nails to drive over even though I asked him to clean up his mess and he said he would. He deprogrammed both garage door openers and didn't bother to reprogram them so that I couldn't use my remotes. After he left and I discovered neither of the remotes worked I called Superior and was told that I'd need to wait 5 days for someone to come out to reprogram them. Are you kidding me! I hope the doors hold up without problems. I had to wait an additional two weeks for someone from Superior to come out to adjust the doors so that they closed all the way. I have zero confidence in this company.

Easy to work with and great communication throughout process.
Best bid of 3 quotes. Timely response to all requests.
I asked to have the lift installed ASAP and was shocked how quickly the permits, installation and boat setup were completed. All done in just a few weeks. Pilings were placed perfectly just an inch away from the from the dock for easy boat access.
If you need a boat lift AMC is the place to go!
