Everything went well beyond expectations. Initially I requested a couple of quotes and went with Deck Specialists both due to the quote provided as well as the confidence that I was given that they would get the job done correctly and they understood what it was that I was looking for.
I had initially planned on doing the work around mid to late May and had told
I would call him when ready. My tax money came in earlier than expected and I called
to let him know. He was very accommodating and we had a date set to start for basically the week after I called him. Start date was for Monday 3/3.
I took the day off on Monday to make sure I was there for any questions and such as well as to provide the first half of the payment. It was a very poor weather day, it was freezing and raining, I thought for sure I would be receiving a call to let me know he would not make it and was worried about taking another day off. That was not the case,
and his crew showed up right when expected Monday morning. Given the weather they did not work long that day but they did get all the materials unloaded and I was able to get everything done with them that needed to be done.
Tuesday was even worse, it froze over night, schools were canceled and it was a miserable day.
On Wednesday the guys came out and by the time I got home from work the deck was framed, the hot tub was moved and they were much further along than I expected.
On Thursday I stopped home for lunch and again they were moving right along.
indicated they should be finished that day. I came home that night after work and they were very close to done. It started to sleet and freezing rain but they stayed until about 6pm in the bad weather to finish the job up.
was out there pressure washing the dirt and mess while it was freezing down rain.
Overall the job was better than expected, it looks great and was done very quickly and to my satisfaction. We have gained so much room on our existing deck and now the hot tub actually looks good rather than a sore thumb sticking out.
's workers were all hard working, professional and friendly.
I will likely have them back again in the future for a possible
addition to the deck.

is great. He listens well, is confident, and honest. He admits he's not the cheapest, but will tell you why. His crew is fairly experienced, but there was one guy on the crew who was brand-new. I understand that he has to manage labor costs and not everyone can be a 15+ year journeyman carpenter.
will tell you that they fully understand the details and requirements of installing
, where he thinks others are not as competent and detail-oriented. It seemed like a sound argument to me.
tried hard to get us to consider using vinyl siding instead of
(it's cheaper, and a quicker install), but we liked the look of
much better.
Price-wise, I think it was fair. I got him to come down somewhat from his initial quote; he told me a few times that he wasn't making much money on my job. I have no idea. I'm certain I could've gotten a cheaper contractor, but I feel I got a good value here.
All of the work was to be done outside (although they needed access to the inside to do the windows). The weather did not cooperate in the late winter/early spring of 2013, so it took them a while to finish the work. But, strangely to me, when there was good weather, they did not show up early and stay late to try to meet their schedule. Perhaps they did not stay late because they didn't want to disturb us after the kids got home - if so, that was thoughtful...I'm just not sure.
Finished product has been great so far, with one possible exception (below). I can tell where the experienced guys did the caulking vs the inexperienced guys. They took care of our yard, and there were no problems with them being inside.
The only potential problem is that there is some rain water dripping down from one of the soffits from time to time, like it's not being caught by the gutter or something. I called and asked them to come take a look, but they did not make it out. I haven't followed up again. There have been quite a few nails that are laying around the house that I've had to pick up - I wish they would've used a big magnet to try to get more of those up.
Overall, the house looks great, the windows slide nicely and have much better features (he recommends/uses a smaller and cheaper window manufacturer than a
or
or other big brand name). I am happy and would recommend
.
was recommended to me by a contractor friend of mine who subs out this kind of work.

They are more expensive than most providers, but they proved the value proposition was there with competitive comparisons ,material cutaways, glass efficiency demonstration, and a very good warranty. Their installers were top notch , pleasant and professional people, who worked hard and kept the construction site well organized.. The bottom line they quoted the job, and delivered exactly what was promised.

was very responsive to our needs; he was very patient with the whirlwind of activity during our closing process- some of the repairs on the list were not clear, and he was more than willing to work with us. He did a good job on everything.

Honestly, this is the most unprofessional business I have ever encountered. We met with the owner's son in mid-September to obtain an estimate. We were very encouraged by what he had to say, telling us that they could do everything that we requested and could get it done within our time frame. He then told us that he would have his father come by to look at the project and get his opinion as they worked together but told us we could expect an estimate within 3-4 days. After that time had passed and we called (three times before getting a response - no one ever answers the phone, always a machine) we just assumed that the father had come out after the third message as he left his business card in our mailbox; however, that was the only action taken after those three calls. No one ever returned our call. After waiting another week, we called again. This time, the father called my husband, and it was clear that the son and the father did not communicate at all. The father just spoke about redoing our deck which we told the son was not something we wanted to do at this time. He seemed to know nothing about the discussion with his son about repairing and remodeling our porch. He then told us that they do not repair roofs and gave us the name and number of another person to call for that part of the project.

told us that he would come out again and look at our porch, but this never happened. We called two more times to inquire about it and received no response whatsoever. We were prepared to spend tens of thousands of dollars on this project, but clearly this company does not need the business. We are happily going with another company that returns calls and provided a timely estimate. All in all, it was a huge waste of time and extremely frustrating.

arrived ontime for a quote, measured up and looked at the existing structure. He determined that the understructure was still good and we just had to replace all the wood on top as well as the two sets of stairs and the bench that runs around the deck. This was not the lowest bid but it was certainly competitive and I felt good about going with him.
His crew showed up two weeks later - as promised - and took the old deck off. I believe that he had allowed 1-2 days for this part of the job and it was actually much harder than anticipated and took 3 days as the old deck was cedar The carpentry crew then took over and put the new deck down. Both crews were very professional and very pleasant as well.
All in all this was a very good experience and I would recommend Deck Specialists to anyone. They did everything they said they would do and the price was good.

After we heard from
Greensboro Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, all went well. We had purchased the job as an Angie's List special deal for a good price. The credit card payment went through fine, but we had not heard from
Greensboro Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Service. I kept checking messages on Angie's List and there were none. Angie's List sent an email to ask if we had heard form the provider (No) and followed up with a phone call. Then we heard from
Greensboro Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and he explained that he was far out of town with a family medical emergency. Then we scheduled the job and he came as promised. He was a little late as he got lost finding our house, but he called us and got directions. He did a careful job and the result was better than we had expected. I was happy that he asked if we wanted additional work done, but did not pressure us.

I asked Mr.
Greensboro Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
if he could fix some problems in my small home in order for me to turn it into a rental property. (I was a single mom and had purchased a 2-bedroom house before I remarried and we moved into my husband's house.) Mr.
Greensboro Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
offered a free estimate that was easy to understand, thorough and reasonably priced. Mr.
Greensboro Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
even helped me work out an agreeable payment plan (

Mr.
Greensboro Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
began work in February of 2011 and the house was ready to rent mid-March. I was able to get my house rented for more than my original rent rate by April 1st! The response was overwhelming! Several couples who were interested in renting the house said it was one of the most beautiful rentals they had seen. I had 2 renters in line in case the first couple did not qualify!
Mr.
Greensboro Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
did a really quality job bringing out period details (the house was built in 1947) in his choices of neutral paints for the walls and moulding, painstakingly repairing and cleaning the mozaic tile floor (tiny, square tiles in an intricate black and white pattern) in the bathroom, and fine-tuning the landscaping to help the boxwoods and pre-established garden stand out along the main walk.
You always hope you can find a "service provider" that will treat your project with care and detail. I know I have a hard time choosing someone from a list in the yellow pages, internet searches, etc. that I can trust to do the whole job, a good job, not overcharge me, and someone you can count on. I have complete faith in Mr.
