Recent Review: Frontier Deck Builders did an outstanding job building a deck on our new construction home. We wanted a maintenance free deck, and they helped us choose a product that not only is maintenance free, but looks like wood. The work was done quickly, efficiently, and on time.

Recent Review: Deck quality is outstanding. It looks like a new deck. Price was fair. I had 3 deck guys come out for quotes . Deck Armor and another contractor were both around $4K. Another quoted $11K. Went with Jim based on price and Angie's List reviews. He provided an Angie's List discount as well. The only negatives are that I had some issues on overall communication during the project. Deck Armor has a full schedule, so I had to wait over a month before work began. Also had a few issues with clean-up afterward, but Jim resolved everything.
Recent Review: My deck had shaky railings, loose connection’s, several warped boards along with rot, cracks, splinters, nails that had become unloose and were also corroded - not to mention the color due to the mold. I made my attempts with power washing but finally left it alone and phoned “Deck of America”, which was a recommendation from a friend. Two young gentlemen from “Deck of America” came out and spoke with me and my son and gave an evaluation. I shared my concerns about safety and they measured and made suggestions from my vision to the actual concept of what could be accomplished. They shared pictures from prior work they had completed and I immediately signed a contract with them because “Deck of America” prices were significantly cheaper than the other companies I requested quotes from. When I returned home, after the first day I was so pleased with the difference just the power wash made!!! The next day they made sure that no boards were causing an issue by replacing the damaged ones as well as the corroded nails and they gave me safe seating. They were quite meticulous and created a totally different atmosphere than before. Every step of the process was calculated – they worked so well together. The materials needed were brought in, their plans were set and they worked tirelessly from the time they arrived until the time they left. I had already decided I wanted a two-tone color - and the end results were amazing!!! If I didn’t know any better, I would think they had built an entirely new deck; it was just that great!! All I could do was keep staring at the results. “Deck of America” is fantastic!!! At the walk through more was shared about the process of refurbishing our deck providing insight into architectural considerations that worked with our home and landscape. They were very pleasant and knowledgeable; it’s great to know that there are companies that still take pride in their work; they also did a great job cleaning up before they left. We were told not to use the deck for two days and after that it was open for family – safe and all! I was so very impressed with their professionalism and would highly recommend Petra and Alex for any job in the future. We LOVE the new deck and thanks to their creative concept our deck turned out better than we could have hoped. We constantly receive compliments and do not hesitate to recommend “Deck of America” to all my family, friends and neighbors! Thank you “Deck of America”!! Emily E. Glenn Dale, Maryland
Recent Review: Tom and his team did a fantastic job over the two days that I worked with them. During the biding process and after I hired him, Tom was very responsive and answered all of my questions thoroughly. Tom and his team showed up on time both days and were extremely pleasant to work with. They also did a great job power washing and sealing the ipe wood decks. The decks look like new; I am very pleased. I plan to use Tom and his team for yearly deck maintenance going forward.

Recent Review: Charlie spent a lot of time discussing with us the materials and design of the deck. He had lots of photos to show us of his work. He gave good, practical advice about which premium materials were worth the money and where less expensive materials could be used. He was knowledgeable about the newer materials as well as the pros/cons of newer and more traditional materials. He designed a really nice deck based on our selection of materials and budget. Rather than a regular rectangular deck, he designed something with a lot more visual interest and flair. His price was great compared to other companies we looked at. The construction went well. The only hitch was that they had to dig further down to find rock than expected, and as a result, there was a change in price. The deck was made with a newer Trex material. The electrician installed LED lighting on the stairs and outlets on the deck and below the deck. The deck passed inspection easily.
Recent Review: Deck builders was able to start sooner than expected. The crew arrived on time, tore down the old deck, and began on the new deck. It took about a week from start to finish. The crew did a fantastic job, cleaned up the debris and gave us a beautiful deck.
Every aspect of the process was handled in a very timely manner; the estimate, the drawing up of plans, securing the permit, beginning the construction and finally completing the deck before the estimated finish date. The deck builder, Skip, kept me informed of the work schedule and consulted me as needed regarding decisions about aspects of the deck/ stair construction. The workmanship of the deck is of a high quality and I am very pleased with the outcome. All of the Steadfast Construction staff that I dealt with through the whole process were professional and knowledgeable. My new deck looks great!

The completed project is great, I love my new deck, and I am a hard person to please, the neighbors stop by and really like the new and fresh look that it now provides. only a couple issue with the completed project, but that's only because I didn't build it myself. Overall I am pleased and I would recommend these guys in the future. Todd was very responsive and stayed incontact with me (a most) and his work crew is awesome.

Jose was punctual, hard-working, and professional. Took 3 days to build a 12x12 raised deck. Last week during 5.8 earthquake.townhouse moved and shook, but not the deck. Passed both state inspection and Fairfax county inspection.

The design of the deck was fantastic, and much more interesting and creative than anything other deck companies were offering. The price was great, and the workers were diligent and respectful at all times. Due to some circumstances out of their control (delays with HOA approval, permit issues, worker illness, the derecho storm) the completion date was pushed back a few weeks from the original estimate. But we are 100% satisfied with the final product and would highly recommend Dream Builders to anyone looking for a great deck-builder.

Project went very well. One area was not done to my liking and they quickly removed it and reinstalled at no additional cost. New deck is beautiful. One railing board has come loose and they are living up to their guarantee and servicing that next week.

I got quotes from three builders for the demolition of my old wood deck, to be replaced by a new one using Timbertech/Azek decking materials. Tom was by far the most reasonable and had top-notch reviews. You aren't paying for a large pricey showroom with him. You are getting quality workmanship at a reasonable price. The process went smoothly from start to finish and I would highly recommend.

Our old deck was removed, and a new pressure-treated pine deck was installed. We worked with Dave Corbin, and he was very professional and knowledgeable in the industry. He provided various options and took the time to understand our preferences and needs. When we were faced with some challenges, he even provided additional creative options. We went another route that required a lengthy permit process, and he was very accommodating and responsive throughout. We are very happy with our new deck! I would definitely recommend working with this company.

Exterior Works did a great job on a new deck for my townhouse. Arafat, the business owner, came out and gave an estimate a month or two ago. He was the most personable of all the people I had come out to give estimates and also came in with the lowest price. The communication was quick and they took care of process of getting HOA approval, permits, etc. with little to no effort required from me. The deck looks great!

The best contractor I have ever worked with, hands down. Robert was extremely responsive and very helpful with suggestions in the deck design. His no-pressure approach made it very easy to work with him. His price for the complete project was very reasonable, especially given the quality provided. His crew is top notch, polite, and clearly are pros at building decks. The deck was started much sooner than originally estimated, and within 5 days was done. They left the construction area spotless, removing all debris and "fixing" my yard where needed. A ++
