4th 2013 I sent
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
a deposit for the installation of cabinets and the installation of a window. The deposit was in the amount of $1212.00. I confirmed by email that the lead time for the window was 3 weeks and the work would be completed by August 12th at the latest, but it could be sooner. After
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
failed to complete the work by the 12th, he finally completed the installation of the cabinets (but not all of the trim) on September 9th. There were many emails and phone calls regarding the window. Finally, I told
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to refund the money to me and he agreed. The refund would be the difference between the deposit and the cost of the cabinet installation ($1212.00 - $624.00 = $588.00). On October 18th
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told me the money

owes me would be refunded and the check would be mailed ASAP. After almost 2 months, I have not received the check and he has not responded to my emails.

We met with them and described what we wanted. They sent information on much it would cost and when they would start working. They showed up to start when they said they would with a very friendly and caring crew. Each day the same people showed up, they worked efficiently and did a beautiful job. We really got to know the crew and could see they took great pride in their work!! It was an excellent experience.

Overall we are very satisfied with how the deck turned out. The workers were friendly and courteous, and all of the work was completed within the scheduled time frame. They also did a good job cleaning up the work site. Any issues that arose during this process were quickly resolved to our satisfaction, by

and
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Funk. We would use this contractor again in the future.

In a phone conversation with
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
several days after accepting the bid, he refused to honor the Angie's List special, informing me that that work wasn't being done by
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, but by him individually. I asked if he was insured, licensed and bonded, which he was not. I reminded him the bid was from
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, which he denied, coming as a complete shock to me. I spoke to
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
the next day, certain this was a miscommunication, and was met with
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and an invitation to have
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
do the fence and deck...for $3,000-$4,000 more than the agreed upon bid. When I reminded
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
the bid had been delivered to me with
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
address, phone, and fax printed on the proposal, in an
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
envelope, after meeting with him as the owner of
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and with
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
as an employee of
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, he refused to honor it, saying I'd asked them to do work without a permit (?!?), which made no sense. What homeowner would take that risk?

* * * UPDATE * * *

The provider's response is riddled with inaccuracies, confirming my wise decision to walk away from
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
:

(a) He claims no bid was provided, yet I have his written bid on file, on company letterhead, in a company envelope (am happy to provide it, should anyone like a copy).

(b) He accepted the job; it was only when I questioned the new, higher price the truth about a non-licensed individual doing the work began to surface.

(c) I told him other contractors informed me this type of work required no permit; I did *not* tell him he was prevented from confirming such with the city (something I would expect any legitimate contrator to do) or circumventing the law. Why would I have raised the question if it was something I hoped to hide?

(d)
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
happily agreed to do the work. It wasn't until after I refused to pay an additional $3,000-$4,000 above the written quote to have the work done by someone licensed, bonded, and insured that he "refused to do this job."

(e)
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's claim that I'm "mixing [them] up with other contractors" is a long-reaching attempt to discredit the fact I provided this review with a written bid and meticulous notes in hand. Hopefully, this review helped other homeowners avoid property and legal risks stemming from unlicensed, uninsured, unbonded work or deceptive bait-and-switch pricing.

Thank heavens I trusted my instincts and walked away.

Funk and their crews put in long hours and always kept the yard clean while they worked. The work was done in a timely fashion and they were very responsive to our wishes. They were very friendly, nice guys and hard workers. I would not hesitate to call them again for any future work we need.

After nearly two weeks of phone tag around the holiday time,
Golden Valley Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
came out the day after we spoke. He was running a few minutes late, but we appreciated him calling us to let us know. When he did arrive, he seemed very professional, polished and knowledgable. His bid was quite a bit more than the two other bids we received, which would prevent us from calling him in the future.

Very courteous team put in our deck footings in one day. They even ran into problems with a concrete slab buried more than 3 feet underground from an old deck that they had to jackhammer to get through. They only charged a few dollars more for this than their original estimate. They were extremely quick and easy to work with.

They are just amazing. I've never had any problems with their work or clean-up. They came out a couple times to fix a drainage problem and they come immediately and are just wonderful. I have never worked with anyone who was so willing to work with my schedule and budget. They are just amazing to do that for me. They are perfectly willing to work with what you've got. They are very accommodating.
