I highly recommend
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Fisher and his team at RJ Fisher Construction.
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is extremely talented but most importantly, he says what he can do and then does it. He has a great crew and the finished product is first rate. I worked with RJ Fisher to build a house 10 years ago. They did all of the carpentry, much of the tile work, and several other parts of the job. All of the work was completed
efficiently and with extremely high quality. Other subcontractors on the job praised the work that
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
’s team did. As with all projects of this size, issues came up but
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was great to work with and we remained friends through the entire project and afterwards.
When I called
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to build a deck for us this spring, he was here the next day to look at the site and gave me a hand drawn plan and
price quote before he left. If you have ever tried to get work done at your house, you probably know how hard it is to get a call back in a timely manner, much less a quote. He had several great suggestions to make the deck prettier and more usable. He gave me a start date and said it would take a week and a half to complete – he was on target for both.
During deck construction
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
’s team was here on time and cleaned up before leaving each day. They worked swiftly and were friendly to my family, our dog, and the neighbors. The finished product is beautiful and low maintenance with the composite decking, rail and lighting systems
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
suggested. There are many unexpected extras that enhance the finished product. We were doing a bunch of landscaping at the same time and the owner of the landscape company said he had never seen nicer workmanship on a deck.
Once again, a pleasure to work with
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
!

I love my new Trex deck!
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his crew really worked hard in the summer heat to get this done. The day after demo they returned to bore new post holes. When the machine blew a hydraulic line the guys dug the remaining holes by hand! It was 94 degrees that day. It took just a few days to do the framing and deck. The crew was meticulous making sure everything was measured and fitted correctly. It looks beautiful and the screws are
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
so you can walk on it in bare feet without getting snagged. Solar lights were added as a final touch to give it a nice glow at night. I highly recommend
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. Hopefully I can have them build me a garage next since they do more than just decks.

I looked at four different roofing companies. I chose
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
because they sounded like they knew what they were doing and the price was comparable to the lowest bidder. I also chose them because they didn't try to sell me additional services I didn't want. One salesman from a different company kept explaining that they charged more because they had more overhead. Not a good way to sell people. By the time I met with the
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
people I knew what to ask and they gave me good answers.
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's crew was efficient, friendly, and on time. It took a day longer than we originally thought (due to rain, I believe) but they worked very hard to finish the roof up as quickly as possible.
The crew cleaned up each evening and cleaned up entirely, including searching for metal in the yard, before they left. In spite of having to remove shingles, they did no damage to my garden. I most appreciated how nice the guys were who worked on the roof. They worked steadily and respectfully answered any questions I had.

This whole process makes me wonder if Angie's List posted the review dated April 2014 without verifying anything since
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
has been out of business for a long time. It makes me wonder about the veracity of other reviews posted. Also the Ratings selections at the top of the Review section do not allow a person to select NA for Overall Rating when there is nothing but a phone call to review about the provider.
Mr.
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
sounded professional and was courteous on the phone. No other information is available.

Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
came to our property, looked at the jobs that needed to be done... and did the unusual and very professional thing. He told me that his company was the wrong provider for the work we needed to have done and told me exactly the type of professional we needed. On one job - repairing entrance doors - he told me that his company would be too expensive for the
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
nature of the work and that we could save money by going to a different type of company. He was more concerned that our work get done properly and at a fair price than making business for himself by selling us services that we didn't need! Isn't that the way we want all service providers to behave?? :-)))

I signed his initial proposal/contract and paid him 1/2 of the initial contract value on 9/27/2013 for the larger deck only and was told construction would begin in about 10 days. As it became late October and it hadn't been started and weather turned cold and the job would require concrete, I informed him I didn't want my old deck removed unless he'd finish the new one before winter stopped construction. We agreed that I would be first on the list in the spring. Finally in early June they arrived and tore down the old deck and nothing more happened for weeks. Finally about June 20 the framing was being done and I agreed to have them also do the smaller deck. The smaller deck was removed and replaced within about 2 days and they poured concrete and began constructing the frame for the larger deck. I informedhim on Tuesday, June 24th that I would be out of town until the weekend. He assurend me that they would be done with the next no later than noon Thursday and asked if I would leave the payment for the remainder as he'd need that to purchase materials for another job before I returned. I told him I'd leave the check but he wasn't to cash it until the deck was done. I came home on Saturday and the deck wasn't close to done and the check had been cashed. When they got there the following week, and cut the siding from the house, they cut an additional foot of siding so he now wanted extra as we'd have to go to 20' to cover the cut out siding. We agreed on some additional payment as I did feel there would be benefit to a slightly larger deck.
I left town again for a week and when I returned, the posts had been cut too short for the required height of the railing so an additional side rail was installed at that level and it was patched together to add an additional board 9" above to meet requirements for the railing height. Finally after figuring out what we'd need to do to make the deck look halfway decent by extending the posts and covering the 4x4 post and extension with cedar (for which he wanted payment for the idditional cedar required to cover their mistake) they finished the job on

Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
did a great job re-building our retaining wall. He explained thoroughly what would be involved, approximately how long it would take and how much it would cost. He provided a written estimate with detailed cost. When he was done he cleaned up the site and left the area looking nice. We get compliments from our neighbors all the time regarding the wall.
We had initially contacted
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
about repairing the wall in the late fall/early winter. He suggested we wait until the freeze/thaw of winter passed so there wouldn't be any freeze/thaw during the installation. We appreciated his suggestion to wait until after winter and the early, rainy part of spring in order to do the job correctly. We felt it demonstrated a lot of character to make sure the job was done correctly, even if it meant he wouldn't get paid for several months.
We know

does indoor work as well including kitchens, etc. We would definitely use him again in the future.

Our experience with
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Builders during the entire course of this project was exceptional. Up front,
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
covered every design and construction detail with us and made sure the final product was going to be exactly what we had in mind. Once the design was completed, he guided our permit through the city staff....no small task since City of
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is currently backlogged with many new construction permits. Once
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's work was done,
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
stepped in with his outstanding crew who made the design a reality. The quality of construction was terrific and there was clearly a commitment to making sure every detail was correct. They were on-time every day, worked their tails off every day and then left the site completely clean every night. We were consulted by the crew throughout the project whenever a question arose about exactly how we wanted the finished product to look.
It should be noted that the cost of service shown in this review does not include the french doors or the ceiling fan. We purchased each of these ourselves and provided them to the crew onsite. We were able to use
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's standing contractor's discount with a local building materials supplier for the
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
French Door unit.....this was a significant cost savings.
We now have a beautiful balcony off of the back of our house that looks like original construction due to how well the trim, architecture and colors are matched. The old balcony was in terrible shape, unsightly compared to the rest of the house and bordering on unsafe due to the condition of the wood. We found the price to be excellent given the exceptional quality of the construction and clear commitment to customer service shown by
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
as well as all onsite employees. We honestly could not be happier with not only the final product, but how the whole project progressed.

I signed a contract with owner
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
on 5/3/2014, with assurances that the entire project would be completed within a month. We had been impressed with his professional website and he was very personable and knowledgeable. He talked a great game. We have had multiple problems on this project. A dispute between the contractor and a sub-contractor almost caused a
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to be placed on my property. Other workers not doing their assigned tasks to standard, or actually causing damage to work that had been previously done. He says he is a perfectionist and will fix everything. We'll see if that actually happens. As I write this, it is 8/19/2014, and it has been 15-1/2 weeks since this project started. All I have sitting in my backyard is the shell and the roof for all the appliances. The roof has started to sag, the grout is missing in spots, some of the joints on the carpentry is not even joined properly and looks like a 3rd grader did it. One of the fascia boards is curved inward and very noticeable. None of the appliances have been installed, no electrical, plumbing only partly done, no ceiling fan, etc. I literally have a poorly constructed shell and roof, with no appliances installed. I have received one excuse after another from Mr.
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. I make repeated phone calls and text messages, and he rarely answers them. He does not provide updates on what work he has done, and what work is to be accomplished next. It got to the point that I was requesting daily information on what had been accomplished that day regarding my project and he is still not providing that information. I ask when my smoker/grill will be done, and I keep getting told, "probably next week." Then I get another excuse, and another delay, and it has been going like this for months. He keeps telling me, "You are the priority and I am working as fast as I can." Then I find out he has been working on somebody else's project and didn't even start actual construction on my smoker until approximately 7/21/2014. Remember, I signed the contract on 5/3/2014!!!! I spoke with Mr.
Fort Dodge Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
last night and asked him when the smoker would be ready and when would my appliances be emplaced. His answer was, "I should be finished with the pit next week." Here we go again, another week delay. Of all the contractors I have hired over the years, for multiple projects on my previous and current home, this has been the absolute worst experience. No professionalism, lack of communication, poor quality, doesn't meet deadlines, and excuse after excuse after excuse.
