Sample Reviews


We had originally received a quote in 2013 but could not go forward because of another project we had to do first. We contacted them in the spring and told them we were ready to move forward on a new deck but wanted to add a gazebo. They came out promptly and measured and got us a new quote within a few days. We looked it over and signed it within a few weeks. They gave us an estimated date and told us they needed a
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
of survey to get the permit and that is where we ran into the glitch. I could not find a current
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
of survey! We had to hire someone to come out and do a new one which took forever. Of course, once we got it Lake County wouldn't accept because it did not have the well measured out. Once we got past the issues with the
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
they got the approvals quickly and kept us informed on dates. They started within a few days of our original discussed date. They were there at 7 am every morning, worked until it started to rain and would come back as soon as it stopped. They cleaned up every day before they left and were always available to answer questions. When we had an issue we emailed the office and got a response immediately. Most of my communication was through email so I could get immediate responses. They finished on time and we thrilled. It was painless, professional and they sent us a gift basket when they were done. I can honestly say I have never had a project go so well. My husband never had to call anyone with an issue.

So SUNCRAFTERS has asked to be removed from Angie's List....no wonder....We tore down our old deck ourselves after approving the drawings with
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. That was in May. We could never get him to commit to a start date. What we agreed to was June 21st. The project started the 2nd week in
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. Several days no one showed up. no calls to us. and if we called most of the time it took several calls to get a response.
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
actually told me not to call him every day. I was not calling him every day but I was returning his call because he asked me to leave a check for him to pick up another installment. We were not behind in paying. I told him I was upset because we did not pass inspection on 3 things. He said no big deal and then proceeded to blame my husband for us not passing. We wanted the stairs moved to the front of the deck instead of the side and my husband had discussed it with
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and the person doing the work.
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told my husband no problem just tell the worker the next day and he would do it. Then when it did not pass
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
said he did not approve anything. Materials were shorted on the workers. One day they had a bobcat come to smooth out where the deck would go but they did not put anything on the grass like wood and it tore our grass up. It took us weeks to bring it back to look halfway decent. They brought more materials later and put some on the grass and did not show up again and that grass is shoot for the rest of this year. Workers were pulled to start other jobs so more days of no shows. We were promised that once they started it would take 3 weeks unless there was bad weather...we have had great weather and no shows. Here we are at mid September and our job is not done and no clue when or if they are coming back to finish it. They still need to finish the electrical installation of lights and fan. Install storm door. Install screens and windows. I took the advertising out of our yard that was put there without being asked...I figure if they are not working there why should I advertise for them. Our deck is elevated so we have to block off all the sides so our dog grandchildren and guests do not fall or get injured. It has been 2 weeks with nothing being done except the gutters were put on.
- Rebecca N.

Project went very well. Friendly representative (
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
). Easy open discussion of materials and size. Work started on time. Finished in about 1 week. Very happy with new deck. All materials from old deck removed. Yard left clean and neat.

- joseph L.

Bottom line: I am very pleased with the deck and fence, the project manager, and the crew. Atlantic did the job within their estimated time frame, the only change order was one I initiated for additional lights, the crew was top notch, and the project manager did an excellent job to keep me up to date on the next steps each day. They weren't the cheapest estimate, but the other company who had the best presentation has gotten very poor reviews since we got their estimate and actually walked away from one of my neighbor's jobs after they failed inspection. Atlantic was the right choice and I would hire them without reservation in the future.
Long story:
I will say that there were some early delays in getting the project started. Some were due to my scheduling, and some were due to Atlantic. My dealings with the owner were by email only after my initial estimate which was thorough. I did not receive return phone calls, and did not get my plans back until right before they were scheduled to break ground. Going into the actual start of the project, I was to be honest, a bit leery and did not have the best of feelings about this job. Two days before the job started, the project manager,
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
called me up. At this point, everything changed.
From that point on, my only dealings were with
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and the crew
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
by Calemerio. The crew are not Atlantic employees, but they are the same 3 guys that came every day for the next three weeks and did every single bit of the work.
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
set up a time to meet with me at my house, went over the plans with me and showed me how everything was going to be laid out. When we were done, the crew arrived to have a meeting with him as well. They began the work the next day and encountered significant challenges with the large boulders and rocks in my backyard. They worked incredibly hard in very hot conditions and used every tool imaginable to dig the holes for the footings the required depth for the county. While they were waiting for that inspection, they began doing as much framing as they could. These guys never stopped working, took almost no breaks, were courteous, and kept a very clean job site. I received daily email updates or phone calls from
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and he stopped by every single day to check on the crew.
We passed every county inspection on the first shot and when I discovered some minor issues during the building process, they were corrected the very next day. They were able to construct a very large deck with three major sections in a very nice herringbone design using a composite material with a contrasting border. The steps were custom wrap around, so everything had to be made specific for this deck.
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
ensured my deck was finished and my yard cleaned up before a party I was having so that my guests would not be stepping over debris waiting to be cleaned up. The crew was diligent to count every single board that was delivered to make sure they weren't shorted and when I wanted more lights in the stairs, had them delivered and installed without any delay.
The fence is pretty standard - 6 foot scalloped privacy, but
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and the crew were very careful to discuss everything with me for the gate placement and they knocked the fence out in less than 3 days including digging all the posts and making the custom gates. These guys even offered to help me carry a grill up onto my deck on their lunch break.
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is a total asset to Atlantic. I understand that Calemerio and his crew were new to working with Atlantic, but their experience in carpentry and construction was very apparent.
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and Calemerio exhibited the right level of communication with me, the homeowner, and professional judgement that didn't require my approval.
As with any company like this, they tell you upfront that they do not do landscaping, so expect some trampled and dead grass and some dirt piles when they are finished. However, every scrap of material was removed from my property.
There has been one final set of adjustments needed to the gate hardware, and they haven't asked for the final 10% payment until I've reviewed it and walked through the fence with them to close out the project.
My experience started out a bit uneasy, but once I met with my project manager, everything went off without a hitch. I'd hire them again without question.

- Christopher T.

The project went as planned. They finished on time and exactly on budget. The addition was on the side of our house and
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
took extra care not to trash our grass/yard and fence.
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
responds to calls right away and is easy to work with. We got started a few weeks later than expected but once we got started his crews were at the house almost every day. Project took about 10 weeks and the finsihed results are beautiful. The quality of work is excellent and I would recommend
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to anyone considering a construction project or home addition.
- Holly M.

Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was good at returning calls and getting out soon to give me the initial estimate. It took a little time to get the estimate back; but he started quickly once we agreed to work together. Excellent attention to detail and communication while working and always asks questions to make sure he's doing exactly what you want. They finished the job in a timely manner and even work fairly late into the evening on the final day just so they'd have everything done. I will use
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
again in the future and would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of a general contractor.
- Jeremy M.

The quality of the work is fantastic.
Poor communication. I had to leave several voice messages and sent several emails in attempts to communicate with the owners regrading the project. It could take weeks until I received a response. The only time I received a prompt response was when they wanted to receive final payment.
Poor clean up during and after the project. They left soda cans and other trash items throughout the project which we cleaned up. Plus, we ended up paying for and removing all the old, discarded boards with nails and other deck scraps from our yard. Thank goodness for Philco.
Poor scheduling. Somehow we were taking off the schedule (no idea why), and had to wait several weeks to get back on the schedule. Due to the length of time that it took for them to finish the deck work, we cancelled the staining part of the project since winter approached. We began negotiations and the project at the end of September.
Due to the lack of communication, I would not use their services again which is disappointing since we were extremely satisfied with the quality of work
- Jessica E.

FANTASTIC!!!! The quality of construction is high, great personalities, and custom touches that make my deck unique and personal. Love it, we will continue to use them.
- Gerald K.

This is an older deck and wanted to refurbish. Replaced the rotted wood, then painted/stained the entire deck and
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. Work was done promptly - a few scheduling issues, but nothing major. The painters had some issues with paint, but very quick to fix everything. Clean-up was so-so. All in all, did what I wanted, though paint/stain will need to be done again soon.

We solicited the services of the top three dock builders on Lake
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. I affectionately call them the Lake
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Mafia because they are all priced in the same range and they all build very good docks, which made the choice difficult. We selected
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. Why? The owner
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
clearly listened to our ideas, did not tell us that we "can't do this and can't do that" and then offered several great design options. In the end, he designed a dock that is extremely functional, fit our requirements and looks absolutely awesome. What really made the difference? The owner listened and delivered the product we wanted. Despite some of the design challenges.
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
found the solutions.
The finishing work and attention to detail. Drive around the lake and look at docks, then look at a
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Dock. There is difference. What are they? Trim along the roof lines. Rubber bumper and corner systems not typically seen on the lake that give smooth lines and a neat appearance, not to mention the protection they offer your boat. Amazing flip down cleats which give the dock a finish that I have never seen before. Excellent, no strike that, fantastic after the construction follow up (maybe not timely due to work loads, but great nonetheless). We had two call backs on items that needed "fine tuning" There was no argument, there was none of the usual "that is what happens when a dock settles etc". The team came out to the site, made adjustments, then came back unannounced a week later to make sure the changes made were what we wanted and if anything else needed to be done. I can't tell you how pleasing it was to have that kind of service. To be clear, we are happy customers. We do not have an affiliation with the company nor an interest in it. We are taking the time to write this review because
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
took the time to take care of us. It is that
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. Negatives if any: Yes, a minor one.
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his team are busy and the summertime brings the stress of everybody wanting their dock built now. The construction as stated above was perfect and the dock in my opinion is a literally a show piece. However, it took much longer to construct than we had planned. We had a family event planned and the dock was about 75% complete and this was a disappointment. However, when I mentioned this to
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
he understood the dilemma and sent a crew out to our home to get the dock "functional" in time for the party. Was it perfect, nearly. Was it functional and made the event a success.......yes. Who in this current climate would go that far to make sure you are happy? You just don't see service like that these days. Advice: If you are going to build a dock, you have some great choices on the lake. If you value service, a work with you attitude and don't mind a little more time getting it constructed, then
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is an excellent choice. The crews do not cut corners, they are well experienced, very personal and will do whatever it takes to make sure you are happy. If you are not sure of the design aspects,
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
can offer you some creative solutions. Miscellaneous:
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, owner of
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was introduced to me via another firm on the lake that closed its doors. He specialized in lifts, lift designs and dock building. Hence the name Water
Tahoe City Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. In the construction of our dock we wanted "clean lines" and functionality. Because of the company's access to various lift solutions, we had the option of installing "Sunlifts" via a solar powered system. This added feature was in addition to the cost of the dock but gave the project a very neat and clean finish. It also provided us with many more options than we thought possible. We are grateful for the results and truly enjoyed working with the
