Bennington Deck Building Articles
We got three bids to replace this deck, and went with
A big crew of seven or eight guys showed up on the first day to tear down the old deck, and everything was gone by the middle of the day. Big 6" X 6" supports were concreted in.
The second day a smaller three-man crew showed up to begin framing. The joists were complete and part of the high deck had flooring by the end of the day. While his crew was working on the high deck,
The third day a two-man crew finished out the high deck with the rest of the flooring and rails.
The fourth (last) day, a two-man crew built the stairs from the high deck down to the back yard, complete with handrails. The last part of the day they cleaned everything up.
The deck looks great and seems to be very well built. All the lumber except the joists and supports was routered on the corners to make it look nicer. All boards were fastened with wood screws. Small details, like mismatches where the new deck didn't align with the house where the old deck was fastened, were trimmed out to look nice. Deck corners were trimmed with mitered boards and look really good.

I am delighted with my new deck and railing and recommend
Our$30K+ outdoor kitchen and living area project included extending the concrete slab, removing the existing roof, framing, electrical work, and masonry. All work was performed in the cheapest manner possible using the cheapest materials with no supervision or regard to standard construction codes leaving us with an outdoor area full of code violations and hazards. Concrete slab foundation was not properly poured or reinforced resulting in cracks in the foundation and city code violations. Roof flashing was improperly installed without the use of roofing grade caulking, proper cut-in stone installation, or counter flashing. The wrong gauge wire was used for ceiling fans, electrical wire was not in conduits, and outside electric boxes were not weatherproof. Concrete slab foundation slops abnormally and masonry settings are already cracking.
