Initially, we were very torn between hiring
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's Construction and another reputable deck company because of cost. Both presentations were comparable and both were able to provide the deck that we requested. We were drawn to
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's Construction because
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
had some very innovative ideas for the deck that the other company didn't suggest. His ideas were creative and smart and he also made some product suggestions that addressed safety concerns we hadn't even thought of; our deck is large and very high. Even though the other company included everything we requested in the deck plans, it was very generic and boring.
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was very approachable about discussing our budget and negotiating a price. Thanks to suggestions from
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, we were able to change out some materials without sacrificing safety or appearance and scale back the size slightly without losing useable space and bring the plans within our budget.
The installation took just slightly longer than anticipated but that was attributable mostly to the Township over an error in the permitting process.
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's Construction was excellent with their communication and status updates throughout the entire build.
The look and style of our deck is exactly what we wanted and more. We have no plans to build any more decks on our property but we are definitely considering using
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's Construction for interior work and landscaping.

The provider provided an estimate, but insisted that permits and inspections were not needed. Based on what the other contractors who provided estimates told us, I called the Township. Permits were required, as were two inspections. Additionally,

was the only one of four contractors who wasn't going to anchor the deck to the joists in the basement.

was much less costly, but I had no confidence in them after the misinformation about the permits and inspections. Therefore we went with a much more expensive estimate and it turned out to be a very smart move as all permits, inspections and unforeseen circumstances were covered.

From start to finish the project was ahead of schedule. Crew was pleasant and rolled well with the few unseen circumstances like a dryer vent that needed moving and a misunderstanding about railings for the step. They responded beautifully in both cases and there were no added charges. We are very pleased.

The project went well overall. From the date of the first contact on May 27, 2011, to the first meeting with
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
on June 8, 2011, to the receipt of the first proposal on June 22, I found that the communication with the company was positive. When I had questions that needed clarification,
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and the crew were always able to answer my questions and explain the options. An amended proposal was prepared on
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
28, 2011, and I confirmed then for an October 2011 build. The project was scheduled for 10/5-6, but had to be pushed back to start October 10th. Demolition of the porch and the foundation began on Monday, October 10, 2011. That afternoon
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and the crew dug and prepped the footer for the new foundation. At 9 pm
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
returned with cement block solids. On Tuesday,
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
the mason arrived early to
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
the blocks and completed three walls by the afternoon. On Wednesday, October 12, the mason and assistant returned to apply a parge coat of stucco to the exterior walls. On Thursday, I received a call from the secretary
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, saying that they wanted to let the masonry cure a few days before doing the new porch floor. There was some confusion about their receiving my check payment which I had mailed. Subsequent checks were either delivered by hand to the office, or given to the crew at the time requested and stated in the proposal. The week of October 17 was the most stressful for me, because I had to be out of town on a business trip. I had hoped that the project would be completed before I left on the trip, but that did not work out. While I was away, the
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
crew did framing and joists on the porch, removed temporary supports, reinstalled the roof support posts, framed the cement walk and steps, and put the porch deck in place. They poured cement for the walk and new steps down to the garage. They put the existing railings in place. The week of October 24 I discussed with
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
the railings, the things I noticed that needed attention or remedy, and discussed paint colors with
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. He was prompt about replying to my calls or email questions. I provided lunch for the crew on that Monday, and noted that they did a good job of rebuilding the railings, painting, preparing the steps and grading the ground and spreading the remaining stones. On October 31, final painting and finishing details to the porch railings, balusters, smoothing out rough scrapes to the railings, and checking the door clearance for access to the storage room under the porch. There were some delays during the week of November 7th, due to schedule conflicts and rain. On Wednesday
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
added an additional coat of paint, and then dropped off an extension cord on Friday morning in preparation for finishing the carpentry adjustments on Saturday. On Tuesday, November 15,
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was finishing the project and told me to make a list of the areas of concern, the "completion list" which I sent to him via email on November 19. On November 23 I observed evidence of attention to the areas I had identified, however the underside of the lower railing was still unpainted.
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
addressed the issue of erosion of loosened dirt and rain water spilling into the drain area near the garage door. On Friday, November 25, 2011,
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
came to do finishing touch-ups and covering nail holes with silicone. I gave
Reading Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
the final payment for the completion of the project.
