Our decks are BEAUTIFUL, Ohio monsoon season and all. Two previous estimates from
other companies were more expensive and less for the money. Removed a 19-yr. old
wooden deck and unusable wooden steps for patio enc.

and his team of
installers were the best, even giving us a way to take our dogs outside once the wooden deck was removed and the huge
puddles moved in. Project was not completed in agreed time frame due to our exceptionally rainy May-
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and an
exceptionally packed schedule. Despite the weather and a color change by us, we believe any setbacks were a result
of the 'legman/scheduler' not always providing the installers with the most detailed instructions. Easy to
remedy, but just stretched the completion out further. Hardest working guys you could ask for with a classy-looking
result.

began the job on the day and time agreed to. He and a second worker carefully removed all of the existing redwood deck boards from the portion of my deck I had agreed to repair. They were careful to preserve all boards by prying them up from underneath (after removing the first board in the middle). They then inspected all removed boards for rot and fungus growth and other structural damage and sorted them into a still good, possibly good, and likely bad piles. I was asked to review each board in each pile to confirm which boards I wanted to re-use. They did a great job of categorizing the removed deck boards as I agreed with their judgement.
After removing and sorting all of the old deck boards, they then removed all of the old, rotten/deterioriated wood support structure that was causing "squishy" boards, causing nails to stick-up, and causing a generally uneven and uncomfortable deck surface. They then removed years worth of leave litter and rotten wood debris from the exposed concrete surface. Next, they built an entirely new and extremely solid support structure out of pressure treated 4x4 posts. This support structure was leveled and reinforced so thoroughly that I could just tell it would last for 30 years or so.
They then properly spaced each board onto the newly-built support structure while using new deck screws to secure each. The whole job took 4 days but only because they took so much care and attention to detail in the work they did. The rebuilt portion of my deck is so solid and tight that I feel sure it will last for another 30 years. They will be returning to stain the old and new wood to ensure that the deck is protected for years to come from the elements, foot traffic, and lawn furniture. I wouldn't have rewarded them with the staining job if they didn't earn my praise on the carpentry/rebuild job. I would recommend

for your repair job. The alternative to repairing half my deck was to pay 4 times what I paid for repair. I feel like I did the right thing with Summit.

was present and working for the entire 5 day project. I couldn't be happier with the craftsmanship and look of the deck. Not only that, but they were at the low-end of the price range compared to the 4 other estimates I recieved.

I contacted the company through their website and the owner called a day or 2 later to set up an appointment to come look at the project. He even followed up when I was late on getting back to him. He showed up on time and had samples of numerous decking options. He provided guidance on what materials might work best and alternatives to fit our budget.

was responsive in providing updated quotes when we changed materials. Ended up going with a different contractor who was approximately 10% less expensive and material to be used was a step up (from capped composite to Azek PVC). I would however recommend this company when getting bids for a new deck; we did go with another company but I think
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
would have done a good job as well and their price was competitive.

Overall this project went well. We are thrilled with the quality and look of our new deck. There were a couple of hiccups, but they weren't severe and they were handled quickly and professionally.
We had been planning this project for several years, but it wasn't until we abandoned the idea of a new patio and went to a deck that everything came together the way we wanted.
We solicited bids from several contractors, but only
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
seemed interested in our business.
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
worked with us to refine our initial plan, and suggested several tweaks that helped us get better value and usability from our new deck.
It was important to us to have one contractor to handle the bulk of the work- removing the old patio, grading and landscaping as well as the deck itself.
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was able to easily accommodate that.
Access to our property is over a public right-of-way and the only way to get a bobcat in there is over our neighbor's driveway. We took care of communication with the neighbor and were concerned about how this might go. We needn't have worried. Not only was the operator careful to minimize his impact, he actually did some grading on the neighbor's gravel driveway after he finished and left it better than when he started. They were very grateful and even gave us a very nice bottle of wine as a thank you.
There was a mix-up with the city permit, but
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
handled it quickly and we only lost 3 days to the problem. The city inspector commented several times about the high quality of the materials and workmanship.
In the weeks since the project completed, we have used our new deck more than we ever used our old cracked patio and we look forward to many more years of use. It has been a great experience and working with
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was a pleasure. I would definitely recommend
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and would hire them again without hesitation.

Timely, professional, and quality work. The job estimate in time and
money was right on and the deck is beautiful. We love it and can hardly
wait to show it off to family and friends. Forget the urban legends
about unreliable builders, this is a first class group that ONLY does
first class work.
My initial call for an estimate was answered almost the day it was placed.
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
gave us design ideas (his were better than ours)
and a realistic start date. The crew was on time EVERY day and we were provided a time line for each step.
I am so glad I called
Homer Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and if I have another project they will be the only call I make.

was very personable. He spent a lot of time answering all of my wife's questions. She had a lot. We received quotes from 4 companies. His quote was right in line with the others. 12 months 0% financing is a great option. We were out of the country when most of the work was being done.

text and emailed us pictures of the progress. My wife actually made several mid course changes via text!!! Some were major changes, like expanding the deck. I was really amazed when we got home and everything was completed, just as we requested !!!l His team is very punctual and hard working (the days we were there). They seemed to work very well as a team. Very efficient. We have already referred this company to friends.
