Crystal Lake Deck Builders Reviews

"Both my wife and I fell in love with
Crystal Lake Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. She was great to talk to and and responsive to our design ideas. After some back and forth we came up with a design that we loved. Then came the price. Over $40,000.00!!
We had to pay extra for how we wanted the facia board. How we wanted the stair treads, how I wanted flashing on floor joists, and on and on.
After we got over the sticker shock, we decided to move forward, but I had alot of questions and I wanted things done a certain way, as I have 20 years experience. Which seemed to be a problem almost from the start. From placing a sign right in the middle of our week old sod to the fasteners used and the type of flashing used and removing the drainage tile. Everything was an argument and a debate.
Several things that we asked them not to do, were done anyway. Then we get the response of "do you just want us to stop? I can call them right now and have them stop." I heard that phrase about 4 times over the course of the project.
This summer, we had some

boards warp because they were only fastened with nails and a 6x6 post twist. We called to have it serviced. After 3 weeks

finally called us back on a Saturday and said he had someone coming out on Monday. My wife told him we weren't in town and we didn't want any work done while we were away. Well

didn't "hear her."
I spoke to him again reinforcing the desire NOT to have work done while we were away. He said he was at least going to have his carpenter look at at. Apparently he didn't hear me either.
The workers showed up and started replacing things and set off the alarm. Pulling both of us off our jobs. The police were called too. So my wife called

and then I had to call

. To only get the response "that was not my understanding, do you just want us to stop? I can call them right now and have them stop." I client shouldn't have to have her husband call a vendor because he won't listen to her.
If you are the average homeowner and know nothing about construction, then no problem. But my wife and I have painstakingly spent hundreds of thousands of dollars restoring our craftsman house, most of which by us personally. We thought we invested in our house by trusting

to build a quality deck and

which equaled he cost of a new car to only get hassles and arguments. Both me and my wife absolutely hate dealing with

. After this warranty work is done, I will do the rest myself. It's

's way or no way, and it doesn't feel good.
I really hate writing things like this and all of this could have been fixed. If they didn't want to do things the way we requested, they shouldn't have taken the job. Prov 16:18

"Overall, my experience with
Crystal Lake Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was great! The estimate I received was the amount I paid; and I felt the work I had done for that amount was very fair. As far as I could tell, the worker,
Crystal Lake Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, was the son of the business owner and I always knew who I was dealing with when I called or stopped in on the job site. The wood moulding that
Crystal Lake Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
stained and installed has become our favorite part of our September 2009 remodel project.
"They did a wonderful job and were professional and did excellent work. The crew showed up on time and worked hard during the day. I would recommend them to anyone, and would hire them again. Where we had an old, ugly deck we now have a great looking, shiny new deck.
"From the moment I received their phone number, I received excellent service. I saw their ad on facebook and decided to give them a call. I called on the weekend and thought I would talk to a machine but I actually was connected to an actual person and they gave me a tentative quote on the phone and they set an appointment to come and estimate the work for that Monday . I was so impressed with the professionalism of the workers and how quick it was to get an actual quote. Their quote was very comparable to others but the quality of work is so much better then others. From the moment they walked into my house I knew I made the right decision. They were very respectful, they were clean, they told me exactly what they were going to do and how much. No
