did an excellent job that far exceeded our expectations. I did not think that a back porch could be beautiful.

remodling built our porch that is eye pleasing as well as an oasis that has added additional living space for our family to enjoy!! We had a tv, surround sound, and a ceiling fan installed too.. Bill

"Everything went extremely well, they accomplished the work within the timeframe promised at the price that was promised, and the finished product is just fantastic. Everyone who worked on this job was extremely nice and professional.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is very pleasant to deal with as a contractor. He remains in contact giving job updates and strives to make sure that the finished product is exactly what you want. If any questions or concerns came up during the construction, I would send an e-mail to
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and usually heard back from him within the hour. The quality of the work they did is also excellent. My father spent all of his working years in the construction field, and after he viewed our finished patio and sunroom (inside and out), he said he could find no flaws in the workmanship.

"They did a good job on the post and rail fence install. The clean up could have been better, but for the price I would consider them for installing manufactured fencing in the future.
The deck floor and stair treads was more diffcult then they anticipated, but did a fair job for the price, quality of materials was poor, probably my fault for not questioning the grade of material. .
The custom fencing made to match exsiting fence around pool had a price that I thought was low, and I should have known better since I had built the 100 ft of fence around the pool. The quality of the fit of the balisters and rails was terriable at best. The young worker, I do not believe, ever had a saw or square in his hand before. I would not consider using them for custom fence work.

"I verified that the contractor was registered as a Pennsylvania Home Improvement contractor. When i called and left a message, he promptly responded to my call and when I asked if I could have references, he offered to let me come see the large decking project he was working on. It was beautiful and I had an opportunity to talk with the homeowner. I gave him my address, and he came to see my project within a couple days. We discussed possible ways to correct the improper construction of the original deck.

He explained what materials he would use or recommend and why, and was open to my comments about the way he would go about the job and provided honest feedback about my ideas.

When
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
provided the estimate, it was not as detailed as I would have liked, but I trusted him (and he proved trustworthy) to do the job properly and as he had said. Rather than have him submit another written estimate, I simply confirmed verbally what we had talked about. We agreed upon a start date, based on another job he was working on, and he kept me informed about a change which allowed him to do my deck sooner than planned. Once he started the job, he arrived promptly in the morning and worked all day unless he had to pick up materials. Also, he let us know if he would not be coming.

Though the job site was not cleaned up as neatly as I would have liked at the end of each day, when the job was completed, the site was left clean and neat. This might be upsetting to some people, but because of his skill and work ethic, it was a small inconvenience to me - not worth being concerned about in the whole scheme of the project.

I paid a 10% deposit - to ascertain the project was scheduled. The day he started, I paid for materials. The balance was paid when the job was completed.

If you are looking for someone to install a deck, wood or vinyl, and want great workmanship, I recommend you at talk with
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Fisher. His estimate fell in the midrange of all the proposals I received, and I am pretty certain his workmanship is as good or better as any other contractor i talked with. I now have a totally maintenance free deck which is such a cosmetic improvement on my house (which has vinyl siding) compared to the wood deck i previously had. He has my permission to use me as a reference.

"Being a retired homicide
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and a psychologist I admit I tend to be skeptical at times of skilled trade work, mechanics etc. Well thanks to
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
I will no longer be skeptical as he did an oustanding job on building a deck that also took care of structural defect with steps on exisiting home. Their craftsmenship is excellent as was their service and price. I was referred to them via a neighbor. We live in a community where single homes are all about 40 years old.

has worked on numerous homes from my deck to neighbors roofing, replacement windows, finished basements and he has developed an excellent rapport and reputation. I would suggest to anyone. save yourself aggravation from other contractors and go right to

"IF YOU ARE HERE CHECKING OUT THIS PERSON'S REPUTATION, THEN YOU OBVIOUSLY CARE ABOUT WHO YOU HIRE.
DO NOT HIRE THIS PERSON.
The business is basically one person.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. He has a friend that usually works with him, when he is able to find him. I saw him the first week. After that never saw him again. Honestly, I had NO problem with his helper. Actually, the work the helper did far outweighed the work that
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
did.
The "sub-contracting" that is done is for one of his friends that does work.
At one point, there was the main roofer with a helper, and there was
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. doing the main painting with his friend that was scraping for preparation. The first day that all the guys were there I had to pay
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
1/2 the money up front. He was the one that got the money for the roofer. That was requested to be cash. He also was given a check of over $1,500. TEN minutes later he made a call and left. Not long later he arrived back.
The roofer did work VERY hard. I had 4
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
of shingles on that garage. It was terrible. The front porch wasn't much better either. He said he was covered in big black ants from the rotted wood. I had to say that both of the roofs DO look fantastic. The roofer also put on a new gutter in the front of the house and it is very nicely done.
One morning when the roofer gave
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
's painter a ride to the house, I ended up calling
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and he was soaking in a bathtub. He had fallen a couple of feet down his ladder the day before and got banged up.
Other days he would leave early or go somewhere and come back. When the painting work got held up because the roofer was the one replacing wood around the windows
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
just didn't come around. There was plenty he could do.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is listed as "painting and home improvements". I'm not sure what home improvements he does because he didn't help the roofer when the roofer needed help and he didn't help him do any wood replacement around the windows either. No caulking was done around the new wooded windows, touch ups weren't done yet either. He wanted to wait until the roofer was completely done.
To this day, the job is still not done.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
got mad at me because it was going on the end of the second week and STILL I was waiting for the job to be done and the job was completely paid for at that point for over a week!! I snapped and ended up yelling at
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
over the phone because I just wanted the job done for God's sake!! See, at that point he was paid. No money coming in....no work going out. While
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was there he complained about 2 other jobs he had been on that he had to go back to. I know he did go back to the one but the other one he didn't because when he called the man told him that his daughter cut herself or something. That made
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
mad and
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
said he didn't plan on going back.
All the guys left my door open constantly. The electrical outlet was inside and the screen door didn't have spring to it. They just ignored that and left it wide open. One day when the roofer was there alone I stopped and the front door was propped all the way open. The back door was also. He had opened the front door and put the jam in the screen door so he could carry his wood out. It was open all day, feet from the
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
of a main road with woods across the street with critters.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
also knew that I had to have someone arrested because they got caught stealing from my garage but he didn't care I guess. He sub-contracted him out but never came to check on anything that he was doing. He'd call him once in awhile but that's it. The last day the roofer was on the job he papered and shingled the
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
of the roof on the left side right on top of wood that should have been replaced. When I stood at the garage door and looked up you could see it plain as day.
Right when it started raining during Hurricane
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, which was more than a week after the paint was done, the entire house started to bubble and the paint was coming off. I called him and told him. It ended up he would not talk with me and told my husband he was not going to do any more to the house.
I did research and found out from a reputable company that looked at the paint cans
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
left, that the paint had been watered down.
While
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was "mixing" the paint can he told me this was how it was to be done for the priming.
He was told by the paint company to use a masonry primer. Yes, he did use the correct primer. But he was to use the primer in the straight form out of the can.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
mixed about 1/3 paint to not even 1/3 primer and the rest......water from my hose. And he only used ONE coat of THAT!!
When you paint asbestos shingles, which is highly recommended to seal in the fibers...you need to be very careful to NOT have paint runs on them. If you see runs, you need to get a brush or roller and cut it in so it doesn't run. I've got runs all over my house. It goes down the side of the house, then down the concrete wall at the bottom and then went onto the concrete porch and formed a puddle. I did get a company to look at it that is a reputable painter and as soon as he saw it he could tell the paint was thinned out.
Also,
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
did not spread plastic down on the ground as you are required to do.
At one point I told
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
that all I wanted was a
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
of paint and for him to stay off my property. He called me back and said we could work it out and told me to call back on a Sunday. I had my husband call instead and
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told him that it was either faulty paint or it was because we didn't have enough insulation in our walls. (He dug deep for that one I think)
He then told my husband that he was going to get the paint company to come out and look at it. This was during the heavy rains of
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. He called back and said it would have to wait until the rain stopped. We never heard from him again. When my husband called back after 1 1/2 weeks
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
said he should have known he wasn't going to come back or call. My husband made an offer to him for him to pay us $2,500 and we'd call it even. We, by then, had gotten yet another estimate to now FIX what
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
had done to my house. The damage was $4,885.00.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
said he'd call back with an answer. He called back in a few minutes and told Ed that he wasn't going to give us any money back. He told my husband because besides that, "you aren't even supposed to paint asbestos". Unfortunately,
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
doesn't know how to use a computer. If he had, he would have found on Google on many sites that "not only are you able to paint asbestos...it is highly recommended". When
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told my husband you shouldn't paint asbestos my husband then asked him, "then why did YOU paint it". I don't think
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
had much of an answer.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
told my husband to "do what you
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
do".
So...here I am. I have now sent him a certified letter for signature and this was on my list to do second. The Post Office tried to deliver my peice of mail at 9:15 this morning. Just like I figured he'd do....he either didn't answer the door or he was sleeping from his stooper and didn't hear it. If they can't get him to claim it in 15 days it will get returned to me. Needless to say, I am already preparing my next step. Why wait until the 15 days are up. Unfortunately right now I can't tell you what I am going to do next because he does have access to this site when his girlfriend pulls it up for him.
So,
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is then telling me that it is fair for me to pay a total of over $9,000.00 to have a not even 700 square foot house's exterior painted. This is even with some of the sides not done due to me wanting to stone it later. And I told him I'd paint the posts.
How can he honestly think that this is MY fault? I wish he would tell me. How did I make the paint not stick?
I seriously think that he has done this type of thing to so many people and they just let him get away with it. They don't know how to go through the process and don't know what to do. I feel sorry for all those people.
You see....in the last year and a half I have lost both my parents, both my in laws and my only brother.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
has lost his parents recently too. That's why we hit it off and that's why I thought we were ok. When
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was painting I cried because I was so happy for this to be done. I saw my Daddy sweat working on that house for 43 years and I wanted to fix it up nice to sell it. I wanted peace of mind. Instead I got set up.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was really nice to me the whole time acting like he knew what he was doing. He talks about himself alot because I think he's trying to convince himself that he's a good worker. He was nice to me as long as the money was coming in. I bought the crew lunch and gatorade for a week and spent my own money of over $250.00. What a sucker I was. They must have went home and laughed every single night.
No more. I now can't trust anyone anymore. He has ruined any trust I ever had and there ARE good contractors out there. Unfortunately for him he isn't one of them.
The whole time he was there he complained about money and being broke and not having jobs. I don't think he gets it. When you do a GOOD job for someone is when THEY will tell people. AND AT THE SAME TIME......when you do a BAD job for someone is when THEY will tell people too.
I'm truly confused why he wonders why he's not getting any calls!!
GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL.
A good painter is listed here on Angie's List. Last time I checked they had 9 rated A reports. In fact, I spoke to their paint supplier and they are VERY highly recommended and do a fantastic job. PLUS.....they don't take ANY money until the job is completely done. F, 1st in name.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
got paid the whole amount because he had to cry the blues to me about paying his employes and then I'm not sure why he blew the rest.
Thanks for listening. I will update when I have any news. You can check back with me or even email me at: wendyed2@verizon.net
Thank you!!!

Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
arrived on time on the morning of the 5th and worked straight through the day...they were hardworking and some of the most pleasant people I have ever met. The majority of the new deck was done on the first day; on the morning of the 6th they again arrived when they said they would and completed all but a few finishing touches which
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
came back on Saturday morning to finish...we were amazed at the quality and workmanship of our new deck; it is beautiful and exactly what we wanted and once they got started with the project, they stayed until it was finished which is not the way most contractors work. We are VERY happy customers and would use Keystone again in a heartbeat! They pay attention to every detail and do quality work!

He was timely and arrived when he said he would, finished what he said he would within the projected timeframe. I would recommend him to anyone and would definitely call him again for decking, railing or porch work.

was very helpful in guiding us to design changes that improved the looks of the deck and kept costs in line. He also explained what he was doing to bring the deck up to current building code.
He brought his polite teenage children to help him during construction. He is great at details and readily accepted any suggestions we had. He beat his original time estimate of three weeks by several days.
Harrisburg Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was right on top of any call backs we had.
.
He put all the time we needed into defining what was to be built and that helped greatly in us being totally satisfied with our gorgeous
new deck. And no more pressure washing or splinters !
don't let this smaller size firm slip under your radar !
