Deck Building Reviews in Portland


ripped out the old deck which was constructed improperly (actually, everything that could have been done wrong was) so I know I had a tall order with the type of demo that had to be done before we could even move forward with designing a new deck. I really didn't know what to do as far as choosing a type of wood, the proper length, railing type etc. I decided the decisions were best left to the experts so I asked
to just figure it all out for me. This turned out to be the best decision I could have ever made.
was very, very careful in selecting the wood and a perfectionist in executing his design plan. He placed the pieces that had the most beautiful grain on the exposed railing area as well as chose beautifully grained pieces for the deck. His work is absolutely meticulous. He is truly an artist and master of his craft. I am in love with my new deck!!! I've had a couple people stop by this week and both were "wowed" by the deck & railing. Decks are not usually a topic of discussion so that should give you an idea of how beautifully he can construct. I had a few bids before choosing
and I'm so, so thrilled I went with them. The price & quality of work just can't be beat!!!! I will absolutely be using this company for future projects as well as recommending them to friends. I really appreciate
's top notch quality work which definitely stands out.

did not send out a crew; sent out a retired carpenter that had worked on commercial for 40 years; he admitted he had not worked on residential; I was told by owner,
, that I would have trained new hire (3 weeks) and a seasoned employee; I got the retired carpenter that told me he had been with
for 5 days;the only other person was someone from a temp agency that had no experience... the first day the carpenter,
, showed up at noon, alone, on June 12th giving you all the details would take a book;
had told me prior to starting it was a 2 day job, 3 at the most; the work was started June 12....
was here yesterday, June 29th, to finish work and correct problems.... I am beyond disappointed; I was in the home building business for over 40 years and have always believed that honesty was key...I did not receive that...the work was at the best , mediocre or less....

, with Empire, was able to schedule out work quickly, showed up on the scheduled date and was able to finish the demo and construction in four days, except for the installation of the railing which was custom

's workman like approach to the job from the moment I met him. I made a change in the design while they were installing the sub-struture. The change added 8 sq. ft. to the size of the deck. He made the change without additional charge.
The site was difficult in that there was no street frontage. Access was through my neighbor's yard, with their permission.

and his crew copleted the project without damaging anything in my yard or my neighore's and left both properties in their pre-project condition other then the new deck which we're very happy with.

is a very thorough and dependable guy. Friendly and easy-going, but with a high standard to all his work. Everything he builds is rock solid. We hire him again and again. And with so many kids in our house he has his work cut out for him.

Wow! I was impressed with
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his crew throughout the entire process. Everything was a pleasant experience from my initial call to schedule a time for an estimate, through to the high quality of the work being completed in a timely manner by a hard-working and punctual crew.

's bid was actually the highest of the three bids that I received; however, he was the most detail-oriented in his explanation of his refinishing process. He was also the most invested in addressing any questions or concerns I had about the project and offered the most thorough process proposed. Ultimately, we decided to hire
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
for the job because of his experience and the professionalism that he exhibited. I was confident he would get the job done right. He supplied a clear contract of what work was to be performed, as well as all of the required CCB forms. Everything was transparent and above board. You'd be surprised how often these things are overlooked and/or ignored by contractors, at least in my experience. It was nice that it was all routine procedure with
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. I never had to ask, and his license number was listed clearly and right on his contract for reference. (I've had unfortunate experiences in the past with other contractors who did not have clear contracts and/or were evasive when I pursued a written agreement. In the end expectations were not met due to miscommunication and empty promises. I've learned my lesson.)

consistently kept me up-to-date with the plan for starting each step of the project, and continually checked-in via phone, email, and stopping by while the project was in process. At one point early on in the washing stage,
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, who worked on our project from start to finish, cleaned our railroad ties a second time when he heard I wasn't sure if they had been done yet. In fact, when
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
saw that I had several unstained cedar screens in our landscape that I hadn't included in the estimate (it was not in our budget for the current project), he offered to have his guys clean and ultimately stain them for me for no additional charge! These guys are a gem. Seriously. They also provided entertainment for my 1 and 3 year old for the several days they were here. Both of my kids were totally engaged with all of the hubbub taking place on our property and the crew was friendly while still focused on the task at hand. The final product is beautiful and brings a smile to my face every time I look out the window. The clear coat product that was used gives the wood a

to it, as if someone waxed the entire deck.

Our project took roughly two half-days of washing (the second half day was due to the additional washing of our railroad ties and screens), and two and a half days of stripping and staining.

were with us for the entire project and did a wonderful job. You definitely get what you paid for and in this case, sometimes even more than what you paid for. If you are looking for a contractor who will communicate clearly throughout the course of your project, and who has a crew who is punctual, hard-working, and produces high quality results, look no further. We are planning to continue using this company for the yearly maintenance on our cedar deck. . .and hopefully, some future painting of our home. Thank you

Ed replaced my front steps and porch which were badly deteriorated. He was very helpful and knowledgeable in the planning phase and his execution was swift and done exactly on schedule. His craftsmanship is absolutely outstanding. It is a pleasure to drive home each day and enjoy his handiwork. Not only would I use him again, I plan to have him replace my deck in back. A+ and a very strong recommendation.

I bought a big deal and indicated several dates that worked for us. We got one call back saying those dates didn't work and could we provide another date., and were given the option of two dates. I called and left a message saying that both dates were good for us, and they could pick whichever worked from them. I never heard from them again. We still have not received this service which we have already paid for,

I requested to have an estimator out as soon as feasible, because I live in an
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and they wanted to have my application for fencing by the end of the week. The person with whom I spoke over the phone was able to make an appointment in the same week for 10:00AM. 10:00AM came as I was organizing my pictures of various fencing styles to share with the estimator. He called at 10:00 to verify my address, which I confirmed, and then he informed me that he will be "a little late", 20 minutes. When I told him that was very late, he immediately became defensive by saying that's the result of squeezing me into his schedule. Now, I can understand making room for a new client, but I cannot tolerate the arrogance that I should accept tardiness because someone "squeezed" me into his schedule. If the he did not have enough time in his schedule, then it needs to be said upfront. My time is just as valuable to his and I would prefer to schedule another company which did have enough leeway to show up on time. He then left a message, which I got 15 minutes after the rude conversation. He said that I should re-schedule an appointment for another time, since it was obviously inconvenient for us both. That message was left AFTER I was expecting him to come late, not expecting him to have a NOW SHOW!

For his arrogance and ego, he has lost not only my business, but also the businesses from the homeowners in my neighborhood association.

This is the first time I've had a less than positive experience with an Angie's List Deal. I purchased the deal on April 8. The provider didn't contact me until about April 15. We arranged for the pressure washing to take place on 4/22 between 8 and 10 am. On 4/22, I received a call at 10:30 am that the team was "behind schedule". I agreed to have them come out between 3:00 and 4:00 PM that afternoon. At 2:30 PM, I received a call from
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
indicating that they would not be able to make it that day and wanted to reschedule for May 9. I let him know that all of the items on my deck were in my yard and delaying until May 9 was not acceptable and was very disappointed given that this was my first experience with the company. He apologized and told me he would upgrade me to a free stain (which I appreciated). We rescheduled the pressure wash for Saturday, April 26 between 3 and 4 PM and I asked him to confirm with a call to my mobile phone on Saturday by noon. On Saturday, 4/26, he left a message on my mobile phone that we were confirmed and that they would arrive between 3 and 4 (closer to 3:00) to complete the pressure washing. I was out at a family outing and arrived home at 2:40 PM.
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
had left a message on my home phone that they had been at the house and knocked on the door and no one was home, so they left. I called
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and let him know that I was home well before 3:00. He called back and let me know that the team was doing a job in
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
City and they were on their way there but would be back before 4:00. The team (
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and one other team member) arrived at 3:45.
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
indicated that the two of them would start the pressure washing but he would have to leave to handle another job and the other team member (
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
) would complete the job and
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
would pick up the equipment that evening. The team did a very nice job power washing both decks. At 8:30 PM I noticed that the equipment still had not been picked up so I called
Portland Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. He indicated that he had just arrived home and had forgotten to pick up the equipment and would pick it up the next day (which he did).
There are additional logistical challenges that I could detail here, but the staining job was finally completed on May 12. The stain job was very well done and definitely improved the the look of the two decks. Unfortunately, I would not use the company again as the punctuality, communication and logistics proved to be more challenging (and frustrating) than I would expect from an Angie's List deal provider.

My client is a disabled young woman who uses an electric wheelchair. He came out on time, and of the three bids, his was the best price and the most detailed. He described what the handrails would look like, where the platform would be, how long it would take to build, what type of weather conditions we would need etc. He allowed the family to do some demo to reduce the overall cost. He was a very good person to work with and was very patient through a lot of bureaucratic red tape. I strongly recommend him. The ramp came out beautifully.
