Two years ago, we were selling our house, and there were holes in the screen in our screened-in porch. Since
's company was the only company in the screening category in Angie's List (though there were others in "screen repair"), I had him come out to give us an estimate. He told me that he wasn't sure it would be cost effective for us to put in their product if we were going to sell the house. "This looks more like a handyman job to me," he said. Indeed we went with a handyman and saved ourselves a lot of money.
Thus, he seemed pretty honest, and I think it would be good to give him a
if you were upgrading your porch. For holes in the screen, do what he says, and hire a handyman.

We have owned several homes and used countless contractors over the past 25
years and
and his crew are among
the absolute best we have ever hired. The quality and workmanship put into our 900 square foot deck
is simply amazing.
not only met our expectations, but he greatly exceeded them by
being responsive and amenable to our many design modifications. The speed and
efficiency in building this additional living space onto our home is just
remarkable. If you are interested in quality work at a reasonable price I strongly urge you to sit
down with
, share your vision and become amazed with his knowledge and
ability to do exactly what you have in mind. Do yourself and family a favor and
treat yourself to a true old fashioned company that delivers on its commitment
to satisfy every customer.

We needed to expand our home as my mother had suddenly became ill and need to move in with us. We interviewed many contractors before meeting with
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, the owner, of
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. We told him what we needed the house to look like when the construction would be complete not knowing if it could be accomplished as the prior contractors we interviewed just didn't understand our "vision". After speaking with
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
for about 10 minutes,
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
a picture for my husband and I reflecting what he though "our vision" was.... he understood!! It was exactly what we wanted: a space that could be used for my mother now and be repurposed as family space at a later time.

seemed to be as excited about the project as we were. The following week we met with
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his architect,
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. They took measurements, pictures, and we discussed the project again to make sure we were all on the same page. The initial plans were completed in one week. As a matter off fact, the architect completed two sets of plans, one with our vision and one with our vision improved. We all met again to discuss the project, the plans and decided on a plan the combined the two visions. After out final approval,
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
submitted the plans to my town and obtained all the permits in less than 2 weeks. As a matter of fact, I found out later that the plans needed some kind of revision on them before they could be accepted.
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his architect took care the issue and didn't tell me about it until it was already resolved.
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
went over the contract with my husband and I, making sure we understood everything. While we were signing the contract,
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told us that they would be starting to excavate the foundation in 3 days.
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
even had samples with him so that we can start selecting roofing and siding materials.
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told my husband and I that he was committed to our project and expected to complete it within 4-6 weeks. He said that a project like ours should typically take 90 days but since he wanted my seriously ill mother to move in to her new space sooner than later, he and his team would be concentrating on our project.
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
informed us that he would need to disconnect and relocate our central air conditioning unit before they started excavating. He made sure that the unit was moved, drained and up and running all in the same day as he wanted us to be as comfortable as possible.
We are currently one week into the project and everything has been going very smoothly.
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
has made the entire process from our initial meeting until this point as painless and easy as possible. My husband and I had our first meeting with
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
the end of May 2014 and construction started 7 weeks later! I would recommend his company to everyone and I would definitely use them again.

TJ did a good job of removing two old deck posts and putting up three new ones. He was professional and a pleasure to work with. If i have any other projects, TJ will be my first call.

We had spoken to and gotten quotes from several other contractors but were impressed with
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's professionalism and willing to listen to what we wanted as well as suggesting options such as types of different railing systems he could use. The deck was a single level 20 feet by 20 feet with several sets of steps and columns and a build-in bench. We initially contacted him at the beginning of May and he provided a quote soon after. Being a little cautious, we requested several changes and clarifications to the proposal over the next couple of weeks until we were sure the proposal was detailed enough to represent what we wanted. There was a small miscommunication early in the process but otherwise, each of our request was answered very quickly and clearly. He was very responsive and accommodating each time. I will also say that he did not look to add to the price every time we asked for details on these minor changes to the construction. This is probably high season for deck building but I never had a problem contacting
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
or his assistant through the proposal process and we settled on the design by mid-May. He told us from the start that his current backlog was about 4-6 weeks and he would start the job in late-June. We were fine with that timing and did not feel the need to push to do it any sooner. (Note: Suggest to anyone who's planning a reasonably sized deck realize that your township may require not only a building permit but likely two on-site inspections -- one for footings and another for the framing before the deck is installed). Timing for the entire project including using 2 or 4 men at varying times: demolition of the old deck, footings (delayed due to high water table requiring a second inspection), framing, decking, railing and installing a built-in bench was completed in less than 4 weeks (no week-end or
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
4th holiday work). I was impressed with the workmanship of the people he used for the construction. His lead carpenter,
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was very good at what he does and seems to really enjoy his work. We left it to him to build a bench/table we wanted with some ideas we had and he exceeded our expectations with the final design. It was well thought out and very sturdy. All the workers were very pleasant and cleaned-up the area at the end of each day. In terms a price, he gave us a very competitive proposal that we were happy with and worked within our budget. Besides the price, the main reason we picked him was his attitude and willingness to listen. We were very happy with the end result and the price we paid. He only requested a small adjustment when we agreed to a small change in the construction. The work was done with a high level of professionalism and is whole team was very interested in keep the customer happy. There are a few comments to know when using
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
: His deck drawings were not the most exact which caused some of the early delay to ensure we got what we wanted. He also manages the project and ensures everything is progressing although he is not on site the entire time, (but not really needed). Overall I would have no problem recommending
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
for a deck project. Thanks again to
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
.
(Note: There is another contractor named
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
who also does decking. Make sure you get the right one)

from
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was easy to work with and typically responded int e reasonable time frame. The only real delay was trying to nail down an installation date (all the deck builders are really busy thus time of year). As it was new construction I told them I wanted to get them in before the sprinklers and sod went in to avoid them trampling the new sod but could not hold off getting the sprinklers and sod any longer. Once I gave them dates for the sprinkler and sod installation the hustled to get the deck installed before ahead of the sod. Their initial crew arrived on a Wednesday to dig the post holes and
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
down the plastic and rock that would be under the deck. Thursday was the post hole inspection. They started the installation on Friday and finished up on Saturday. There was only one small issue I had where there was a downspout where the deck was going. When I asked their plan for that downspout the installers indicated they planned on cutting a hole in the deck to run it through. As the downspout was next to a corner of the house I told them to simply remove the bottom portion and I would re-route it off the side of the house so they would not need to cut a hole in my brand new deck. I simply wish they would have asked what I wanted to do about the downspout, but I also was not home, except for 30 minutes, during any of the installation so they would have needed to call me about it. I was home when the inspector came by after the installation. The city inspector said they were the best builder he deals with and that I chose well when selecting the deck contractor.
Overall I'm very pleased with the work they performed. The price was slightly less than what I was quoted form a few other contractors for trex composite decking yet I got fully synthetic decking instead (less potential issues with full synthetic vs composite).

I only actually spoke to
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
twice. I had to continually hound him to get a response. When I did speak to him he consistently missed followup dates.
Northfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
indicated he was extremely busy but indicated he did want to quote on the project. The only reason I continued to contact them was due to their high rating on angieslist but eventually I decided that the lack of response and communication was simply to much of a red flag.

It all went really well and incredibly smoothly. Their timeline worked like clockwork - they would finish one step and be on to the next. They made a suggestion at the beginning about adding a window system which would increase our ability to use the room and we are so glad we did. When they said they would do something, they did it. When people were supposed to show up, they always did.
