The job went very well. The crew was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job. Once work was started the work was finished in a timely manner.

I had originally contacted MD Deck and Shed for a quote in April and at the time selected a different contractor. Prior contractor did not work out so I called MD Deck and Shed again. I worked with
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and once we agreed on pricing I submitted the plans to my homeowners association for approval. After providing MD Deck and Shed with my homeowners association approval, MD Deck provided me with an estimated start date and the work began on time. The lead project person assigned to my project was
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and he was fantastic - I would request
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
if at all possible (at this point
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
drops out of the picture). Both
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his partner (I think it was
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
) arrived on time every day for the two week project. They told me what was planned for the day and answered any questions I had for them. I left for work and if
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
needed me for anything he texted or called.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was professional and informative and on more than one occasion he mentioned that their job was to make the customer happy. The work was completed timely and I am extremely pleased with the final product. Many of my neighbors used the same contractor (the one I had originally signed with) and comparing my finished porch/deck to others in the neighborhood, I feel like I have a better quality product than most of my neighbors.

did a great job. He is thorough, knowledgeable and good natured. His recommendations for low maintenance materials were right on. The new deck is beautiful.

was very professional and accurate with his quote. He designed a deck to compliment our home and backyard. We were extremely please with the design, installation and pricing. I am also pleased to find out he will stand behind his product. We had a few boards split and was very pleased with the prompt response and expediency to correct the issue. My husband and I highly recommend
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his family.

There were many variables to consider due to the uncertainty of costs and whether all of our ideas would fit into our budget.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
asked for a week to provide an estimate which seemed reasonable. Pictures of deck design and materials were sent to him to assist in the process. A week after the initial consultation an e-mail was received stating that the estimate was almost complete and should be ready the following day. It is now seven weeks later and there has been no further company-initiated communication.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
(because he answered the NCD line) were each contacted separately requesting an update.
The F rating is due to the company's lack of reliability and responsibility to follow through on their word which undermines confidence in their potential. Valuable time in the prime season for deck-building and use was lost. Since many reviews were positive we were willing to wait-and-see. Communication of disinterest in a project is a consumer expectation so that timely alternate plans can be made and this was not provided.
If a
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
rectangular deck with few options is what is desired this may be the company for you. If a custom designed deck with unique features is desired, a company that specializes in custom design is likely a better fit. We have been fortunate to find the latter and will report on this experience once the work is complete.

Mr.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
responded to initial phone calls and was very prompt in showing up in June, 2014. He indicated that this was a perfect opportunity because he was between jobs.
Owner paid 1/2 down and the removal work began. It took approximately a week to remove old tile, then another week for prep work of surface and another week for laying new tile.
After laying the tile, Mr.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
requested more money of the agreed amount, in order to finish the job (not including selected stairs/railing). Owner paid remaining amount with understanding that the job would be completed.
Mr.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
did not return or contact owner after that payment.
The remains of the patio were left in owner's yard for 6 weeks while owner attempted to contact Mr.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. After those 6 weeks, he did return to carry off tile removal/installation waste. He did not continue work on the other items agreed upon.
When Mr.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
finally returned owner's phone call, he said that he was doing installation jobs for Home Depot and that, basically, those jobs took precedence over owner's jobs. He told owner that he would contact owner when he became available, still commenting that he would finish the job (edging work, stairs with new tile and new stairs/railing with new concrete pad).
It is now September 21, 2014 - almost 12 weeks since initiation of the project. Mr.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
has never returned further phone calls or emails. Project is still unfinished and no indication when it might be completed.

I had a poor experience with this contractor and would not recommend using them. They have no regard for others time and apparently don't want new customers. If they are this bad with time management for providing an estimate. I would not like to see how they are once they have your money.

First let me say that
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is the nicest guy - the epitome of a professional gentleman. It is obvious that he knows his trade, he believes in doing the job right, and seemed extremely in tune with our needs for the project. The problem we had was in his responsiveness.
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's first visit to our house in August was not by appointment, but rather when he could get there, so when he did come to our house I wasn't home; however I told him how to get in the backyard. During our conversations, I made it clear we were under a time crunch to get the stairs installed (even if the rest of the deck had to wait). He said they had 6 or 7 jobs already paid for that they still had to get to but he'd see what he could do. After a week and a half I called him to see if he had a proposal, and he told me he hadn't put anything together yet but wanted to come out again and discuss it with us, so we set the Sept 6th appointment. On the 6th we had more in depth discussions about what we wanted, he took measurements, and again said that they had so many jobs already paid for... So we discussed our (now more urgent) need to get the stairs in. About 4-5 days later I called to see where he was with the proposal and he said it wouldn't be until the following Tuesday before he'd get all the info from his supplier for the quote. That would have been the 16th of September. It's now the 21st and I still haven't heard back from him. I don't know how I could have been more clear that our project needed to be done ASAP, yet it's now been more than a month since
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
first saw the project and I still don't have a quote. If he was so busy that he couldn't take the job he should have told me right from the beginning when I told him our need to get this done quickly. The only reason I've hung on so long is because we really liked
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and felt like his work would be top notch at a reasonable price, but I'm giving up. Now I've lost more than a month tying to find a deck person at this point. We're very dissapointed.

I want to start by saying that I am very happy with the workmanship and materials used; they did an excellent job.
We are out of town owners of the property and I was very concerned that I would not be able to be present when the work was done. I was told I would have the name of my 'supervisor' and contact informaton on the Thursday before work was to begin. The work was going to begin the day after Labor Day and that may have contributed to some of this; but I was never called. I finally called their office on Friday to ask what was going on. I was told the work would begin on Tuesday and that I would get a call when the workers arrived at my home. I finally called at about 9 AM on Tuesday and the office said that I was supposed to get a call when they arrived at the home, but I did not get a call. They told me my supervisor was
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and they gave me his phone number. I called him and he was not at the house yet. I asked him to keep me appraised of the job during the day. Again I got no call. Throughout the project if I had not called I would have no information on the progress. I arrived at the property on Thursday night so I could pay them on Friday morning. I met
Farmington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
early Friday morning and told him I was not happy that he did not keep me updated on the progression of the job -- especially since I made that known to everyone I spoke to that I was concerned I was an out of town owner and could not be present. He said he understood and was sorry.
The work was spot on, and the area around the house was cleaned up. I have no complaints regarding the workmanship and from this perspective, I would use them again. I'd have to think about the lack of communication though; I was disappointed from that perspective.
