Description of work: "They tore down my 10-foot-by-10-foot deck and constructed one that's 10 feet by 14 feet."

Member comments: "Vince Shala was very quick to respond to my request for an estimate. The deck design was based from a photo I copied from an Internet site. I specified Brazilian IPE decking and clear cedar railing with IPE railing cap. The railing (but not cap) was painted.

"The craftsmanship is first-rate. It was a pleasure working with Vince. I'm a very meticulous person and looked over their shoulders during the work. However, Vince seemed to take my picky nature as a challenge to surpass my highest expectations — which he did."
