Recent Review: My wood condo deck was a couple years late for maintenance; I contracted with the company to get it back to good condition. The assigned workman was punctual and professional, did conscientious work, and was friendly to boot. When the job was completed, the deck looked 100% improved. I was very satisfied with the work.
Recent Review: Excellent. These guys are total pros. Offered up a couple of options, and didn't pressure me to take the most expensive option (just wasn't in the budget). They clearly explained the nature of the work needed to be done and provided great guidance on a couple issues (PVC v. wood for some facia boards / stair risers). There were changes in scope due to some unforseen issues, but they were completely reasonable in pricing out the extras. And then the quality - just really nice work with attention to detail that a makes a proud homeowner even prouder.

Recent Review: REALLY BAD experience unfortunately with this company and the owner. The selling point was that it would be a great work product done efficiently. My family was told it would be a 3-4 week deck; we were told at least 4 separate times that the deck would be completed by a certain date. The number of promises made and broken are staggering. Five months later the deck has not been completed. Finally we had to go with a different contractor and figure out a way to get some of our money back (70% of contract was paid already). We were made promises right up until the end which were not honored. Some of the excuses made were ridiculous considering that the deck was not completed at 5 times longer than we were told it was going to take. I was told I couldn't even get the materials (decking, railings, etc) that I had paid for. The craftsmanship of what was done was very disappointing (posts not at 90 degrees where appropriate, unlevel portions of stairs/deck, removed portions of exterior of the house that did not need removal, weird joints of decking materials, etc). We have to redo many things, and complete half of the decking, exterior of house, railings, cables, etc.
Recent Review: Fantastic !!!!! I contacted Decked Out Design to build a new deck. Scott from Decked Out Design contacted me, set up an appointment for a visit to discuss my deck project. Scott arrived on time for our appointment, we discussed my ideas of floor material and railings, Scott entered all the information into his program and showed me a deck design including a gate to keep my dogs safely on the deck. It was exactly what I had envisioned the deck would look like, great job Scott. Next step was for his builder to contact me to visit the site and set a start date. Jim (the builder) contacted me and came out to go over the details of the deck project and set a date. Jim and his crew arrived as scheduled, on time and ready to tackle the demolition of my old deck and ready to give me a new deck. Jim and his crew displayed professional workmanship and had the utmost respect for my property. Jim informed me daily on the progress of the deck, and kept Scott updated as well. Jim went over some ideas he had for the gate, he proposed a self closing gate so the dogs would not follow me off the deck. Turned out to be great and exactly what I needed. The project was always on tract as it was outlined from the beginning and completed as promised. Jim and his crew are a compliment to Decked Out Design, focusing on detail and customer satisfaction. Thank you so much for a beautiful new deck !! I highly recommend Decked Out Design to anyone needing to replace, repair or upgrade a deck.

We hired Durable Remodeling to replace our older wood deck with a new Azek deck. Dean was wonderful to work with; very knowledgeable about what we needed, and very personable. I received quotes from 6 different companies. Durable was right in the middle pricewise. The guys who did the work were friendly and efficient and there workmanship was excellent. Would hire them again in a minute.

Great! We had them remove the old wood deck and stairs and replace them with engineered wood and PVC covered boards. We added lighting on the stairs and deck as well

I've used Angie's list to find other contractors including roofing and masonry. Mr. Handyman is the first that required me to pay for them just to come and provide me with an estimate of the project. I've had nearly 15 contractors provide me estimates through Angie's List and this is the first that wanted me to pay upfront and no work was going to be done. I would stay away from a company like this that's just looking to gauge you for money.

He quoted the deck. His price was very competitive and better than some New Hampshire contractors were pushing. He finished the deck on time as promised.

Overall, very happy with the entire experience. Karl was very easy to work with. Very flexible. We decided on a small change half-way thru the project that required a permit modification and a delay for Karl in his work schedule however he was happy to build us a deck that was exactly what we were looking for, even if a late change in the design set him back for other jobs. We are planning a full kitchen remodel in the winter and Karl is the first person we plan to call.

MJM was excellent. Extremely professional and vert responsive. I had them remove the current top layer of wood on my deck and lay down trex. They took their time and every cut was precise. I couldn’t say enough good things about their work. I already have them providing another quote for an additional project. Highly Recommend!!!!!!

Victory Construction did an excellent job tearing down a decrepit deck on the back of our house and building a new one. Kevin and team were easy to deal with, worked quickly and built a high-quality product. Despite insanely hot temperatures during the week of construction, they consistently made progress and finished on time. The entire project took about a week. We were impressed and would certainly hire them again.

Kent came the week before to look over the job, gave me an approximate cost, and the time he thought it would take. He showed up on time, and worked until the job was done. He got the job done in less time than he had estimated, and charged accordinglly. He did an excellent job, and we're very pleased with his work.

We love the new deck! We got other offers for a new deck and the quotes were all within range of each other. (We gave an 'A' for price for that reason.) For us the one thing that set Archadeck apart from the others was the design service. Working with Mark was easy (he was very accomodating to our schedule) and we were able to come up with a design that worked within our budget. Jim and Rick were equally easy to work with...Jim went over all the details and answered our many questions...Rick had the deck completed within a week and a half as quoted. The weather had turned rather cold but Rick showed up every morning on time to complete the deck!
