Excellent workmanship. Good quality and clean removal of old decking and replacement with new decking and railing. The gate was replaced with a heavier gate that needed to be supported with a wheel. Be sure to discuss this before installation. Deck looks great after two years, easy to clean. Would definitely recommend Freeborne Decking.

Great. Jon was extremely helpful and the job went quickly with no issues. Everything was handled from permits to final close out with excellent results. I would strongly recommend them for any deck work.

We had our old wood deck replaced with composite decking. My inquiry was responded to within a day and we had our estimate date set. Tom was our design consultant and he explained all our options, took measurements and gave us an estimate. Within a day, I received an email with a 3-D rendering of our project, with all the details. On the day of installation, the crew arrived at 7am right on schedule! They immediately began removing and clearing the old deck and hauled it all away. Within 20 minutes it was completely gone and they began construction on the new deck. By 12:30 pm, the new deck was complete! The crew was fantastic, professional and cleaned up after themselves. The new deck is beautiful and we couldn't be happier with the whole process!

We recently had a new deck installed by John Byrnes of Distinctive Decks. John was a great help in planning out the deck and provided a complete and easily understood estimate of the work to be done. He and his crew worked diligently and professionally with the end result being a beautifully constructed deck. John was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him.

Deck Guardians was really responsive and professional even before the work began. We got four price quotes before choosing a deck builder because ours was a large deck, lots of materials and labor. Deck Guardians was the most reasonable and was transparent about the cost of materials -vs- labor. There were a lot of "moving pieces" with my job because we had a pool install, hardscaping, electrical and plumbing. Deck Guardians worked well with our other contractors to make sure they were not interfering with each other's work. The crew that did the work were real craftsmen with a great eye for detail. They communicated with me every day regarding the status of the project and didn't hesitate to ask me about how I wanted certain details. They went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the way the deck looked. I'm very pleased with how the project turned out. I'm confident that Deck Guardians will honor their warranty should that ever come up. I heartily recommend them for any new or resurfacing deck project!

My wife and I have been looking for several years to have our second story 15-year old wood deck replaced with a new Trex deck. We finally found the right combination of price, product selection, and service with John and his crew at Distinctive Decks here in NY. The job could not have gone any smoother and more professionally. John took the time to answer all of our questions and offered helpful tidbits on design layout, function, and color choices. His crew was courteous, respective of our yard, and did a fantastic job from start to finish. We selected the Trex Transcend line and simply could not be happier with how the deck turned out. Gone are the days of sanding, staining, and dealing with loose/splintered wood deck boards. Now we have a beautiful outdoor space that we can actually enjoy without all the associated maintenance headaches of wood, and John and his team are to thank for that. If you are in the market for a new deck, either to replace an existing deck or have a new one installed from the jump, save your time searching for a reliable contractor. Look no further than Distinctive Decks in NY. Make John and his team your ONLY choice for a decking specialist you will not be disappointed in.

They are extremely professional but they are just expensive. They are like over the top with decks. They don’t just build a wood deck, they also have like I-beams and all kinds of stuff. They don’t use things similar as other deck builders. They put themselves in a unique situation where you’re not building it with wood but with bricks and steel. You can’t compare it to anything. They are automated. They have a great computer system where you can go online to do deck plans. They are very high end.

I chose Decks Unique for the job because they were recommended by my Son-in-Law and had great reviews on Angie's List. All the employees of Decks Unique were very professional starting with the salesman Kevin Fitzpatrick. Kevin took the time to answer all my questions and made recommendations that defenately resulted in a better job. Their crew arrived on time and worked non-stop to remove the existing deck and cart away all the debris in one day. The second day the owner of Decks Unique, Louis Pagnutti, was on site working side by side with his crew installing the new deck, I was very impressed by that.

We were very pleased with Freeborne Decking. Gary was response to all of our calls and questions. The materials and workmanship were excellent. The deck builders were very focused and paid attention to every details (despite very cold weather conditions). They were neat and cleaned-up each day before leaving. We look forward to using our new deck this spring, summer and fall.

I met with Eric at the old deck to discuss the configuration of the new deck. He made several key suggestions that made an important difference on the final result. He prepared a contract describing work to be done, the cost, completion date, and scheduled progress payments. All of these commitments were met. All permits were managed by the group. There were no surprises. Most of the construction work was done by Frank. He went to several building supply companies to find pressed lumber without defects. He corrected some defects in the attachment of the previous deck to the house. He is obviously very experienced. He did an outstanding job. Frank said building decks is his first love. If you saw this deck you would believe it.
Recent Review: The 35 year old deck began falling apart - separating from the house at the ledger board and tilting. By November 2018, we realized it we could not be on it. We got quotes from 5 different contractors, and Carmine gave us a good price on a replacement - larger than the old one with Fiberon decking and PVC rail. He was up front about about not being able to start the work until July when we gave him the deposit in January - a commitment he honored by completing the deck by August 1. The deck he was building is the "top level" of "bi level" deck (the bottom level, much larger, was still in decent shape.) He made a pitch to rebuild both decks, but respected our wishes (and limited budget!) by restricting his proposal to just the top one, even though it meant removing a portion and refinishing the edges of the old lower deck. He developed a solution for the stairs that works today (from new top deck down to old bottom deck) but can be easily adapted in the future when the lower deck is replaced (hopefully, 2 yrs from now!) I would highly recommend Carmine and his crew at Just Decks to anyone in the market for a deck. We're very happy with the deck, and with Carmine's
Recent Review: Mel did a fabulous job on our new deck from start to finish. There were no problems at all. He arrived early each day working until dark finishing the job when he said he would. The craftsmanship shows attention to detail. We would not hesitate to recommend Mel or to hire him again.
Recent Review: I was looking for someone to redo my deck and was visiting friends in a nearby town when I saw a deck being built next door, I walked over and was impressed with the quality of the work. I spoke To Alex Vetlov the owner and he made an appt. for an estimate. He gave me the estimate, which I thought was an excellent price, so we signed a contract. Alex was busy at the time, but stated that he could start in about 2 weeks, and that it would take a week. Alex contacted me the day before and showed up on time, and completed the entire job in a week. He and his team always showed up on time, and the work was on budget, with all debris hauled away and the yard left pristine. I could not be more pleased. I would highly recommend Alex Vetlov Construction.
Recent Review: The jobs went very well. They were there through the entire process and helping with the approvals and permit process. Started the work on time and worked all through the job, sometimes 7 days per week. Extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The work and quality is excellent. Goes above and beyond what is required. I won't use anyone else but Dave Breuter, Breuter Home Improvements. I highly recommend them for all your needs, Small jobs up to major construction.
Recent Review: Mike and Eddie took apart our old wood deck and rebuilt it with Trex composite decking. The new deck came out even more beautiful than my wife and I anticipated! They did such a beautiful, professional job! They were meticulous with every detail. We love it and are so happy we found them to do our job!
