Originally, we thought that most of the vertical wood could be kept. However, once the horizontal surfaces were removed it was apparent that a good bit of the vertical surfaces (not the underlying structure) were also not in good shape.

added a large structural beam to add support, replaced the wood that needed refurbishing, painted it and laid new composite. We decided to slightly alter some of the design in the process. Essentially, I got a brand new deck and it's fabulous and...

kept it to the original amount of money.
This is a terrific company. The owner,
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, is excellent at communicating with the client. He contacted me immediately when I sent my initial request through Angie's List. He was open and straightforward in our original conversations and communicated constantly on the progress of the project asking questions of anything that needed resolution and letting me know how things were going. He is very responsiveness to the client's taste and ideas but is also a problem solver in his own right when need-be. The work was well done. He pays attention to detail and, at the end of the project, everything was left spotless. He even put all the deck furniture back on the deck for me because it was too heavy for me to do.
The price is fair. The work is professional and was done in a very timely fashion. Once the materials were available and delivered they worked through until the project was done. I would recommend this company highly for building or refurbishing a deck.

was my project manager and he did a wonderful job. Every time I had a question or concern he went way out of his way to make sure I was happy. The siding was complete 7 days after they started and at the beginning they told me it could take up to 10 days so the guys were extremely hard workers. I couldnt have asked for a better contractor than

My kitchen was almost finished being remodeled, I just needed the crown molding on the cabinets and the wrap and trim around the windows. They were already partly done from another carpenter who had started the jobs and then vanished. Neon from Custom Quality Finishes came out and took a look, he was in a terrible position of being asked to fix and finish someone else's work. Neon is very professional and a genius with trim (as well as a perfectionist), and managed to get both areas finished and looking great with the materials at hand. I just wish I would have had him do the job from the beginning, I would certainly hire him again for trim/fine carpentry work.

gave me everything I wanted and the price was fair.Excellent...could not be more satisfied.

built a very well constructed shed. More load bearing supports than needed which is overkill but now I know it wont fall in a hurricane. The final product was absolutely perfect and the price was reasonable. 3/4 plywood for the floors and used some sturdy siding material. I would certainly use them again and refer them in the future. Thanks

I cannot say enough good things about
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his team. My story with
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
begins early August. My wife was heading out of town with a girl friend to go on a cruise, and I had it in my head to try to surprise her with a new deck. This meant coordinating getting our old deck torn down and a new one rebuilt in a week time span. She was leaving on Sept 5 in the morning and would return Sept 14 at 11:45 pm.
I figured I would be able to get a few bids and choose the appropriate company to work for. Well, let me tell you what, I contacted half a dozen places and only a few of them got back to me. Some were booked up for the rest of the summer, some couldn’t coordinate a day to come over and look at the deck, and two showed up and gave a bid off the top of their head and said they would get back to me with something in writing but never did.
When I reached
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
(the owner of the company), he listened to my story and loved what I was doing for my wife. He took the time to not only drop by and do the measurements and get back to me with something in writing, but also worked with me regarding the costs and getting it within our budget range (I had to get a loan from a credit union to afford the deck), getting an a/c unit which was hiding underneath the old deck moved to a new location, and working with the city regarding permits and inspections. We were able to coordinate the time for his team come by an hour after my wife left for the airport.
By the time I got home that first day my deck was completely torn down. Now my deck isn’t small, it extends from one end of my house to the other. Yet it was all down in a matter of hours. My

and I hauled it away to save on costs. To our surprise we discovered a beat up concrete patio underneath which had to go.
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
offered me a wonderful deal
on getting it demolished and hauled away. I decided to do it myself to save on costs (I did get a loan after all) and
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
’s crew took pity on me and allowed me the use of their tools to break up the concrete. Let me tell you, my back is still thanking them.
A couple of other complications came up during the project, namely needing new footings for the area underneath the covered section of the deck. Apparently the previous owners hand built their deck using wood that wasn’t built for decks, decided to be creative by having an a/c unit under the deck with a vent on top to allow air flow, put in footings that weren’t cemented in, and painted the deck rather than stain it (painting apparently causes moisture to be trapped in the wood). I’m not even going to go on about what else we discovered around the 3 season porch which the deck wrapped around.
Thankfully, between
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
(the project manager for my deck) and
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, we were able to work around the various issues as they came up. They even called ahead to the city inspectors to work out times for them to do the site visit to ensure everything would be done before my wife got back. It was amazing to come home each day and see more and more of the deck being put up. It
was one less thing for me to worry about and allowed me to focus on other projects I wanted done inside the house.
They were done Friday with two days to spare. If my wife had came home at a decent hour I would have loved to have had

and the crew over to watch her reaction. It was priceless. Thanks again for your hard work

Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was amazing (is amazing). I can't remember the exact cost of the remodel but it was fairly priced (I changed a few things so not sure of exact cost) He pulled out an old bathtub and shower and we replaced the area with a beautiful walk in tile shower that I just love! There were a couple of minor issues afterwards, which is to be expected on this kind of job. Everything was taken care of in a timely fashion and I've never been made to feel as though I was a nuisance. (Although I might have been a little bit).
Subsequently I've called
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
back for a couple other things and he is always willing to help. Some things were minor and I wasn't charged and other things he's done were very reasonably priced.

Our experience with
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was fantastic.
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was extremely accommodating, personable, professional and knowledgable. It was very refreshing to have someone we could trust doing the work who was honest, hardworking and obviously loves what he does for a living. He raved about his employee who was here working as well, how nice is that?... to hear someone appreciating his employee. Our yard, patio and drive, everywhere they worked was protected during work times and clean when they left. we've never, overall, been this pleased with a contractor of any kind, words can't say how pleased we are.

Bill came out to house to look at a recently finished renovation and came up with a great solution to the drop off from back door to ground level. The designs he put together were both wonderful - he listened to our desire to create a space that was functional, fit the space appropriately and within our budget. There were a few delays during the construction of the paver patio and arbor; however, they were not the fault of Covenant - rain and the landscaper delayed the project. Covenant's portion of the backyard was finished in a timely manner, his team was professional and courtesy, and the end result was exactly what we pictured. I would recommend their services to anyone interested in a great design, high quality work at appropriate prices.

I've used
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
all summer to keep my lawn looking nice and neat. Any time I've needed my lawn taken care of, Pat has been quick, thorough, and affordable. He's always friendly and willing to answer questions and even offer advice on how to keep my lawn looking nice (good times to fertilize, weed & feed, good brands to use, etc.). He offers up good tips to take care of my lawn without coming off like he's just trying to upsell me into new services.
we've used him for aerating the lawn as well.

I believe is a good guy.... whether business is just too good, I am not sure, but recent responsiveness was terrible.

quoted work on replacing boards and shoring up older deck.
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
always wants half down, and that is for the whole job not just materials, at least on work he has quoted and done in the past for us. On this $2000 job had to give him $1000 upfront. Labors he said were going to come out next day to start tearing up old boards never showed up. Was a beautiful day. No call or nothing from
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to reschedule, and at least a heads up, when someone would be out to start job. Then when pursuing after a week, it become excuses of it was wet, supposed to rain.... or other times just no response at all. Finally we just asked for money back, after 3 weeks. Yes,
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
eventually sent the $1000 back, in two weeks....but why quote the job.... if you just can't get to it??? Also
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
had installed paneling in our basement last year. Just recently contacted him about this, as we were having issues after less than a year.... and that I also wanted a quote on some additional work in basement....no response back one way or other. So as said,
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
seems to be a good guy, just be careful with the time of year, his follow up, and some of the quality of work, long term.
