Recent Review: EXCELLENT!!! "The Deck" - Hal did a great job on everything. He took out our old deck and added a 45' x 30' deck off of our kitchen that goes 1/2 way around our above ground pool. Some would say, it's just a deck but we know better. This thing is AWESOME and has become the centerpiece of our home. Hal added a 21'x24' roof over part of the deck which perfectly integrated with our existing roof and looks as if it were part of the original house. But that's not all, Hal added what he calls the Florida treatment inside of the covered area, 2 fans, some electrical outlets, superb finishing work and wallah, our own paradise right outside our kitchen doors. To simply say it looks great is an understatement. The roof and decking is as solid as granite. Hal used 6"x6"s on all the posts which makes it just scream class and stability. To top off the deck Hal added world-class railings and framed in the lattice work underneath along with hinging the sides so we also now have more storage space than ever!!! "The Fence" - Hal ripped out our old chain-link and wood fence then replaced it with a piece-by-piece built fence along with a 16' drive through gate and 2 large man-doors which are all super solid and extremely well built which was our requirement in this wind-tunnel we live in and to keep our 2 large-breed dogs in. It's a fence, it looks great and works as planned. But the review does not end there. Since the fence was built we had a tree fall on it and a small tornado. A large wild cherry tree fell squarely on the fence, the fence was soo solid that it literally held the tree up while only losing a few pickets. It saved our pool. That's old world craftsmanship there! Hal came back and had it fixed in under an hour. The tornado was a different story. The tornado hit across the street and took out 30 large trees then jumped over the house and took out another 8 trees in both our neighbors yards. We did not even lose a fence picket. Maybe it was a miracle but I think it was just good craftsmanship on Hal's part. "The Porch" - Hall added 6' onto our existing front porch along with all new decking and rails which match our back deck. It look great. "The Lean-to" - Hal added a 24'x12" lean-to onto our existing shed. It has a tin roof to match the shed and looks just as it it was supposed to be there. Very solid and very well-built. It to survived the tornado which because of it's length off of the shed (12') really surprised me. Again, that is really only due to solid craftsmanship. Overall, Hal is very meticulous and somewhat of a perfectionist. He is a 1 man show so it takes a little longer but the quality of work is well worth the wait. Hal was even very (EXTREMELY) patient, careful and friendly with our 2 large-breed St. Bernard/Great Pyrenees mix dogs. They can be a handful at times but Hal was very understanding. So if you have pets just know that Hal will take care of them as if they were his own while he is working with you. YES, we would use Hal again and YES we highly recommend Hal to all of our friends and family. PS.. I have not figured out how to upload pics to this site but if you want to see pics of the work just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send some right over. We don't mind sharing as we are very proud of our new additions to our home.
