This may be a good company for roofing, but I think it was a mistake to use them for my porch build. When he first came to estimate the job it started as a great experience. Nick was helpful and thourough through this process. He also made it very easy to make the decision to do the job because after sending him picture of what we were thinking he had a friend draw up the design for us. We only had to pick from a couple of designs and we saved time on this part of the process. Another really good thing about this company was that I had multiple jobs going on at once and he was very helpful in planning their work to fit around my other contractors. My concerns started on the first day of the job. I had asked Nick specifically during the initial estimate if his company had done many jobs similar to this and he reassured me that they had and mine would be no problem. The part he didn't tell me was that his company wasn't even doing the work, he had contracted the job out to another company. I should have stopped the job right then, but let them get started. This other company was nice, but not very professional it many ways. Mostly small things, like leaving garbage over the job site every day. But then other things like reports from my neighbors of unconventional ways of tearing down the old porch with debris falling against the house and windows, complaining about the company that had hired them, and one of them always on his phone. But I was willing to look over these things, as it appeared they were doing a good job. This was until they said the job was "done" They left the porch in a very unfinished state. They didn't caulk any of the seams, there are nail holes and many imperfections in their work. The columns had nicks and gouges in them. The lines on the porch itself are not straight. There are gaps and imperfections, boards on the exterior of the house were cracked, lines were not sanded smoothly, wavy edges. etc. There are exposed staple holes in the wood ceiling that were never filled. And after only having the porch 3 months, gaps between boards are getting larger! I contacted Nick and let him know I would not make payment till these things were fixed. The contractor came out and did a few repairs, but did not resolve all of the issues I had outlined. Unfortunately, I was out of time because the painters were ready to start. I had to pay them additional money to complete the caulking that should have been done as part of completing the job. I was out of time to give them more chances to do the work as they had promised. I did pay them for the job, but also send a note outlining our continued issues to the owner. The check was cashed, but never got a response from the email. The porch looks nice from a distance, but when looking up close it makes me a little sick to think about. I wish I wouldn't have been swayed by Nick's early on attempts to make this process easy for us and instead went with a contractor that has more experience in this type of work.

Work went well....the sanding was done well but it seemed that they had not done this type of work that often....once the old finish was off, the crew stained the deck and railings and the deck looks like new

I met with
Madison Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
on this in the Spring and he seemed to understand exactly what I wanted, took all his measurements and promptly sent me an estimate. We agreed there was no hurry with this job, since I didn't want the windows in over the summer anyway. I contacted him in the Fall to remind him of the job. He answered my call promptly, obtained his materials and scheduled the job at a time convenient to my schedule. The man who came out to do the job was polite, a hard and careful worker, and did a great job cutting all the plexiglass pieces to fit my irregularly shaped window openings. He obtained the screen/storm door I wanted instead of the one

had gotten, and installed it - had to make some adjustments to the door frame as it was not perfectly square - when he was finished the door fit perfectly. High quality materials. Good job. It all took 2 or 3 days, and the area was cleaned up meticulously.

is highly knowledgeable and a good communicator. He came to my house and discussed the pros and cons of various deck options: placement, size, materials, stairs, gates, etc. He's thorough and careful. His proposal was detailed and provided what I requested. Unfortunately I then decided to sell the house soon and thus cancelled the deck plans; had I continued with the deck I would have contracted with

. I was very pleased with his professionalism and expertise.

was excellent - he showed up punctually and he did a great job. Best of all, he kept the cost down to something reasonable. Since Fix"Ems charges by the hour, he did the original repair then went on to do some additonal repairs on the screening, while keeping it down to an hour of time. Very reasonable and very professional - I would recommend them to anyone that needs "odd jobs" done around the home.

were great!!
Madison Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
not only came out multiple times before the project began to talk it over with us and give us an estimate, but also brought samples of everything for us to see. He also providing us with many options that we hadn't even considered, but ending up being exactly what we were looking for. We had a massive project, including adding a brand new roof on our very tall and steep house, adding 3 skylights, adding all new gutters on the house and garage, and replacing the flat roof on our covered porch.

and his crew did an amazing job installing the skylights, two in the attic, and one in a lofted bedroom. They lined up the windows perfectly and they look great and bring in so much light.
Madison Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
also told us about installing skylights with solar panels which operate with remote controls and allowed us to qualify for a tax rebate!
All in all, we are extremely happy with the final product.

When we call Bill he gets back to us promptly. He is professional and courteous. The work we contract him to do has always been done in a timely fashion, and done very well. He is good at what he does and is honest and ethical. He has always treated us very fairly. The friends and family I have referred him to have also been pleased with his work and working with him. We trust him.

grappled with the building and electrical problems and met the inspectors' demands with patience and determination. We have had him for several other projects and his standards far exceed ours.

It was great. As the handyman started I ran and got some needed supplies to complete the job (that I hadn't thought of). He was able to complete what I wanted and was able to stay an extra hour (with my approval) to complete the job, so it was not left un-done.
