Recent Review: They were great. Kurt was very thorough and responsive. His workers were very good about cleaning up the space every day. They were a pleasure to have in my home. We are very pleased with the work.
Recent Review: Howard gave me valuable information, did not push any particular wood, took me to see a deck he had built a few years ago. Howard's approach was friendly, professional and down to earth. I trust he will do what he has promised

Recent Review: I called to make an appointment for an estimate, and PJ advised me to simply email him my preliminary measurements, as well as photos of my existing 2 decks. 24 hours later, I received an email from PJ, with estimates for demolition, carting away of debris, and construction of 2 new decks - he gave me prices for wood, and 3 different grades of composite. When I confirmed that I wanted to proceed with the job, PJ came to my home to take his own measurements, show me samples of the different material choices, and firm up his price (which was exactly the same as the original estimate). PJ and his crew did a fantastic job - from demolition, to new construction, to cleanup. The teamwork of this crew was wonderful to watch - each man had his own task to complete, yet seemed to always know, simply by instinct, when another team member needed assistance for a task. Our new decks were built solid - PJ is a master craftsman, and a perfectionist - my wife and I are absolutely thrilled with the final results.
Recent Review: Precision Decks Inc. is owned and operated by Dave Nixon. He is an Irish carpenter who specializes in Decks and outdoor environments. I engaged him to remove and replace both my existing wooden deck and wooden fence in the backyard of my brownstone apartment on W 90th St, Upper West Side Manhattan. The existing deck was replaced with a much nicer, better designed deck made of Ipe wood, a Brazilian hardwood. It has a reddish tint and looks great. Never wears out and zero maintenance. The work on the deck went so well, and Dave Nixon was so easy to work with that I asked him to replace the existing wooden fence which surrounded the back yard. Workmanship was excellent, and more importantly Dave Nixon was punctual, easy to communicate with, fair, and honest about the deck design and overall pricing. I had discussed this project with several other contractors, but Precision Decks (Dave Nixon) impressed me with how much he knew about deck design and construction, plus his prices was very competitive. Throughout the project Dave Nixon had several excellent recommendations on small changes to make. Very happy that I went with them. Will definitely pursue follow-up work in the future. Deck and fence look absolutely terrific and really improved the appearance and usefullness of my existing backyard, which is of course a rarity in Manhattan anyway, so you want to really enjoy it. Highly recommended.
Recent Review: 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!
Recent Review: 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.
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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
