Deck Building reviews in Washington

Never had direct contact with principle provider. Incomplete work on first visit then called and returned. Those providing service did not indicate when leaving or whether satisfactory. Found that drain clogged at bottom of outside stairs to basement but wasn't informed and as a result incomplete work. Felt that principle should have reviewed work. Felt that price was excessive. Live and learn. Had not adequately checked references before having work done.

We decided to use
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, even though he was the most expensive estimate, because he was very thorough with the details of our project. He was also very eager to start the work. From the very beginning we started to feel like we were bothering him with our additional questions or when something changed the project start date. We were one week late in getting our backyard ready for the fence as a dumpster we ordered to remove some debris and dirt never showed up. It also rained for 3 days straight and delayed the project. Both of these events
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to a very unprofessional phone call from
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
indicating he was dropping the wood off no matter what and this project needed to get going because he was losing time to work on other projects.
When we wanted to deviate slightly from the original design,
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
called it "off contract" and would get very stressed out. These deviations saved
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
money and some of them were out of our control. For example, he brought the wrong size of wood as we asked for an 8 ft fence and they brought 6 ft panels. We needed to lower the number of stairs to be installed based on the grade of the backyard; this actually saved
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
money because it was less work and less wood. He did not like the changes, said WE were difficult to work with.
I want to note that his subcontractors
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
were extremely professional, polite and punctual.
At the end of the project,
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's team left the extra wood and concrete on the sidewalk, which we repeatedly warned him would get stolen and that we could get fined for dumping. It rained and the concrete bags and debris turned into a soggy mess that we cleaned up. We called to tell
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
once again that someone needed to pick the wood up and he sent us a 5 page email telling us to "f" off and then asked us to tape the final check to our backdoor so he could pick it up. Really?!?!?
Here are some excerpts:
I found managing your project to be challenging. There seemed to be a lot of deviation from what we contracted for. I wanted to see that we made you happy...and went out of my way, as did
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, to work with you on things that were not detailed on the contract. That's a two-way street. I am now working on my twentieth contract, with another 30 or so proposals out there. I rely on these working documents to convey to me what the customer is expecting from me when I go to manage and install the project. There is no way I am going to have any sort of recall other than what I have put into my contract. And I know my contracts are very detailed...it's one of the reasons I land so much business. I would bet my contract was more detailed than many of the others you received. And if it wasn't detailed to your liking, I never heard of it. Every customer thinks there project is the most important one out there and they really don't give a D...about anyone else's project but their own. And most don't like excuses.
This is the City. It's not the 'burbs. The challenges of working in the City are 100-fold more challenging than in the 'burbs. It's easier for the lumber yard to get in and out in the 'burbs, there's more space, there's more storage, there's more co-existence and less theft, and so on, and so on.
So, yes, I would like to pick up the check tomorrow...and not meet you in the City on a Friday night after 5:00pm. I firmly believe everything I have done and conveyed has demonstrated what type of contractor I am and the service we attempted to provide to you. I would like to think our actions have given you no pause. I will look to copy and paste your gate concerns to
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and see that he follows up with you via phone call so we can see that this is addressed. He would be better equipped to discuss these concerns.
The fence looks good but there are some kinks that we are still not happy about. It is leaning in certain areas and the gate hardware is cheap and the gates wont latch.

and Patio provided detailed specifications for a
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to encompass an outdoor kitchen. The team worked with us to develop the appropriate materials and allotted space. Since this was our first experience building this type of structure, we really required the assistance of an experienced professional to help guide us in the right direction.
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was the perfect person to do so. He helped us transform our vision of a functional area to an even more beautiful space than we could have imagined. I highly recommend
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and Patio for any of your outdoor beautification projects. You will certainly be pleased with their work.

Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
arrived promptly and listened intently to my needs and my ideas. He took the ideas that I had and did not try to sell me more or tell me why what I wanted wouldn't work. In fact, he tried to work around some of the difficulties of what I wanted and find a way to make them work. He got back with me promptly with that estimate. Right after that, we found out from our
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
that we could indeed install a fence and that turned out to be a more cost effective solution for us, so I called
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
back and asked if he could give me an estimate for a fence instead. He was as prompt and efficient as before and got me an estimate quickly. We ended up not doing the bathroom project because it was too far out of our budget right now, but we would have chosen
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
had we been able to move forward with it. As far as the fence went, we did end up choosing another company because their price was a bit less and they were able to fit us in quite a bit sooner, but it was a tough decision. I was impressed all the way by
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and once we are in the position to move forward with the bathroom project and the deck, which we still want to do later, I won't need to call 3 different companies, I will be calling
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
.

was great--he responded promptly with a detailed price that he stuck to, and
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
--who actually built the deck--did a beautiful job that was above and beyond with many little touches that we wouldn't have thought of. Both approached the project with intelligence and sensitivity to our needs--in short, they listened and delivered a great, safe place for our children to play as if building the deck for themselves.

He was prompt, professional, and did it in a timely manner. He replaced the wood with treated wood and the deck looks great!

***UNLICENSED CONTRACTOR*** I contacted
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
& Son before purchasing their "$699 General Contractor for Two Days.'' I asked them specifically if they were MHIC Licensed and the individual named
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told me that yes they were licensed. I needed work performed in my new Silver Spring, MD condo. The condo association screens all contractors prior to allowing work to begin.
Before purchasing the coupon, I handed all information to my Condo Association and I was later contacted informing and informed that
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and Son is not a Maryland Home Improvement Commission licensed contractor. I decided to verify this myself by going online to the State of Maryland DLLR Home Improvement Public Query. I conducted a licence
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and discovered that they in fact were not licensed. I post this with the hopes that they will not try to scam others as they tried to scam me. If these folks conducted any type of work that resulted in a mishap, they would be very little one could do.

Professional. The installers were on time and cleaned up well. Very easy to work with. I'm also very happy with the finished product - the dry snap was installed just before a very rainy day and it was great to be able to run from the car to the deck and open the door without getting soaked. Looking forward to using the space in the warmer weather, too. I would definitely call them again.

and his team were terrific! We had a deck that was falling apart and
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's team replaced it with a fabulous screened in porch and recommended and designed the perfect side porch for a grill and a few chairs. The team was terrific to deal with and the craftsmanship is top notch. We are thrilled with the end result and would recommend Ace highly to any of our friends or family. great job!

From start to finish the experience working with
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his team was outstanding. They showed up right on time for the estimate, provided drawings to help me obtain permits (I expedited my own permits on this one as the DC homeowners center is faster / easier for fences, etc), and worked quickly to complete the job in the timeline they stated. What really impressed me though was the quality of the workmanship. Small details such as smoothing and rounding the edges of boards, laying the decking diagonally as opposed to simply perpendicular to the joists, etc was unexpected and impressive. I will be building roof decks on my property in the coming year and after this experience will definitely be looking to
Washington Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his team to do that work.
