Recent Review: Team built a great new front porch using Azek materials that included new porch posts and new lighting. We are very pleased with the entire process. It is such a great improvement to our home.
Recent Review: Project went well. Looks like good workmanship. Will be able to tell better after the first heavy rain to see if everything drains correctly (which was the problem I was having). The only additional feedback is around consultation on the project. With the vented soffits, the gable vents should be closed off for the ridge vent to work properly. This was not highlighted. Similar situation happened on another project I had them do where the did not highlight additional considerations connected with the work they were doing. So great on the project that they are working on, but needs improvement on giving the homeowner a holistic view of all that should be done.

Recent Review: This company does excellent work. They arrive when they say they will,do excellent work and clean-up everyday at the end of the workday. There was some hidden problems with the original construction and Jake Esh , the supervisor, offered some excellent solutions to solve the problems. The bid for the work done was also better than any other I received. I would highly recommend this company.
Recent Review: From start to finish our experience with Keystone Custom Decks was perfect. Their website is stellar and packed with really good information, their Sales Rep was friendly and helpful and they really did an amazing job all around. After getting a feel for what you want for your project they put together a really awesome 3-D video of what the project will look like to help you visualize it better and, once completed, our new deck/screened porch looks exactly like it did in the video. The workmen on the project were extremely polite and professional, they were on time every single day and worked hard throughout the day. Every aspect of the project went very smoothly and they dealt with weather delays without skipping a day at our project once weather allowed them to get back on the build. All of the subcontractors they brought in were equally professional and managed directly by the Keystone Project Manager and/or his crew. Our project involved replacing an existing deck with a new deck and adding on a screened porch. We had no idea how to tie the roofline from the new porch to our roof, but Keystone's designers came up with a perfect design. Their Project Manager on site worked with us throughout the build to address any concerns or preferences we might have and worked out really good solutions to any of the challenges our property presented. They were very knowledgeable about all details of the project. This was a big project for us and outside our comfort zone, as we have heard all of the horror stories about contractor work, but Keystone Custom Decks put those fears to rest almost immediately. We would work with them without hesitation if we had another project to complete. We highly recommend them.

Recent Review: After seeing their product at the Minneapolis Home & Garden show we were convinced that this was the right product for our porch improvement work. The guys from EZ-Screen brought samples to our home to help us select frame color and installation method. They took careful measurements of all of the window and door openings and put our order in motion. A few weeks later our windows and door were delivered. We did this work at the same time we had some exterior siding work done by another contractor. We arranged to have that contractor do the actual installation of the EZ-Screen product. The rep from EZ-Screen came out to our site when the installation started to ensure that our contractor understood how to properly install the windows and door. Everything went smoothly and contractor commented on how easy the windows went in. After three full seasons of use we still enjoy the product and we're pleased that we chose this as part of our porch renovation. It has added several additional months to our porch usage in our short Minnesota summer seasons. I highly recommend this product for any new screen porch or porch renovation job!
Recent Review: Richard showed up promptly at the promised time and got right to work with redoing our porch. About an hour or so into the job, some rain came along and made completing the work impossible for the day -- he was out the very next morning to finish the job. Porch looks good as new! We've got a few more tasks around the house that need doing and we'll definitely be giving Richard a call to help us out some more.
Recent Review: Joe, and his team, did an outstanding job building my deck and Screened in porch. The craftsmanship was of excellent quality and the finished product came out better than expected. Joe wss great to work with and had a lot of great ideas.
They finished in reasonable time frame. Cleaned up all debree and removed it from the premises using their own brooms and bags.

Excellent job. Shed at 34 years old, looks like new. Porch and picket fence were power washed and painted, both features have been approved by the lady of the house, which is very good, indeed

The porch is wonderful. I like Rick very much. He is very very accommodating, he didn't ask for payment until after the job was done. He had to order a new door for us, and everything went fine.

Brian and his team are master craftsmen. He communicates regularly as to timelines and costs. Great clean up when job is done, too! Getting ready for more projects as our house was built in 1863 and always needs something! Great experience!

They responded immediately, came in with a good bid and showed up on time. (actually early!) They were able to schedule the job quickly. The crew was extremely competent and professional and the job went very smoothly. I will make Piselli Construction my "go to" source from now on. Thank you, Tom, for a job well done and painlessly executed. And for patiently assuring me about the materials when I had questions. Overall, it was the best (by far) experience I have had with a contractor. I will recommend you highly to anyone who asks me for a source.

Crew was fast, efficient, courteous to us and the neighbors. Made sure everything was cleaned up making repeated passes to assure all nails and debris was removed. Couldn’t be happier with the completed work. Jeff was pleasant, knowledgeable and explained up front everything we needed. There was no upsale!

No real plan. He was flying by the seat of his pants. Raised the height of porch so that the wrought iron railing had to be raised (for an additional charge) Fitted out the porch so there was a three inch intermediate step from the landing to the porch which was fixed with an additional charge. Changed the agreement for the rear deck without asking me first. More additional charges. Left a large hole on the exterior door un-caulked, leading to water damage to the new door and frame. The carpentry on the two supports was so bad that both of them need a lot of attention less than a year from installation. I've had to spend hours and hours trying to fix the poor workmanship. Easily the worst experience I've ever had with any contractor.

This small project was a very pleasant experience and exceeded my expectations. Was able to keep it under budget and completed in 1.5 days. They were able to work with us hiring last minute needing rushed. The work would never reflect that though. Norm took care of all the details so I didn't have to stress about getting it done from materials to getting done to VA specifications. Will definitly use again.

I had found G&B Construction on Angie's List by their great reviews. After hiring them I see why they got such great reviews. I had George come out to give me an estimate on extending the concrete slab I currently have in my back yard. His quote was the best one I received for equal work. While he was here, I ask for a quote to remove and re-pour the front porch that we had to cut for a sewer line replacement. His quote was so much cheaper than all other I had received, that I decided to add it to the project. The crew showed up exactly when they said they would and went straight to work. They made such good progress, that they decided that they would do the pour on the same day, instead of the next day. The pour went quickly and they finished the job with the great expertise I expected. One person on the crew came back the next day to do some final touch ups on the edges and he also put my flower bed back so it does not even look like they were here. He also brought some top soil to fill in the gap in front of my new patio. In the future, when I have my asphalt drive replaced with concrete, I will definitely hire them again.

We were so happy with the work Dixie just did in our kitchen that we asked Joey and his team to come back and build a new front porch for us. I am still trying to figure out if there is anything these guys can't do. The old brick entrance was badly deteriorating. I asked Joey his opinion and he suggested we look at using the no maintenance composite decking material (similar to TREX, but of a higher quality). He also suggested a supplier he knew who had good prices on this material. To keep cost down, we decided on a standard 8'x4' porch that would give us a little more room than we currently had. Joey showed up with one of his staff the day we decided (a very humid one at that) and got to work taking apart the old brick and cement entrance. They then built the frame of the new porch and before we knew it, we had beautiful, new, and maintenance free front porch. We are surprised how big of an aesthetic difference the new porch makes. Joey found a little deterioration from water where our siding met the old entrance and sealed it off for us. Additional, he laid the decking in a way which allowed him to seal the connection and place some nice-looking white trim along the seam, so he could minimize any further water damage. They even went as far as to bring white lattice with them, without me asking, to finish off the look of the porch and spread mulch around the bottom so there was no space where you could see underneath. I am attaching before and after pictures for reference, but the really don't do justice to what bad shape the steps where in before and how great the new porch looks now. Thanks again to Dixie for a wonderful job! It is so refreshing to find a contractor that truly believes in doing quality work at a fair price!!
