Dock Building reviews in Hollywood

Real People ~ Real Reviews ~ Real Results

  • Thaler construction built us a new dock. Our dock was falling in the water so I decided to call. Mike the owner came out gave us a very fair estimate and was on time. I highly recommend this company. They are very professional. We had them put down composit decking and all new supports. They used all stainless steel hardware which was a plus. Many other company's that I had called said they use galvanized steel. I feel that this dock was built to last a life time.

  • I had the wonderful pleasure of working with Joe at South Florida Dock and Seawall. He as well as his staff was nothing but respectful during the entire time. His workers showed up after I left for work and generally was gone upon my arrival home. They cleaned up every evening before departing and left everything nice and neat. Joe updated me on the progress and made regularly visits overseeing the work. My dock had tot collapsed and other companies did not show the patience and understanding he did. His price was more than reasonable for the work performed. I was really impressed when he gave me options and allowed me to make the choice as to which I preferred and which one would fit my budget. Upon completion of the job Joe contacted me and wanted to make sure I was happy with the work. I contacted numerous companies and was getting frustrated and felt good service and good customer services didn't exist. Joe proved me wrong.

  • I hired Morisson builders based on a referral and overall reviews on Angies list. The owner Mike came out to meet with my husband and I in June, he seemed very professional. They were hired to expand and rebuild a wooden dock, including an aluminum fence around the deck, the price was $20,000. The job was estimated to take approx 2-3 weeks. They started on May 12, the deck/dock went up without any problems, in fact I was originally pleased with all the contractors, they were neat and organized and had completed the deck on May 24th. I had paid them $15,000 at this point. As per contract the last installment of $5000 was due at time of completion. The only thing left to finalize the job was to install the aluminum railing and have city inspections. We had chosen aluminum rather than wood for it's low maitenance. At the time of the original meeting I explained to Mike I wanted the same color aluminum fence as my existing fence. He assured me it would match, be powdercoated and would in fact be better quality than what I already had. On May 24th I e-mailed Cheryl inquiring when the railing was to be installed, she told me apparently there were issues with the aluminum. On July 14th (7 weeks had gone by) the owner Mike called my husband and asked if we could do him a "personal favor" and pay him half of the balance ($2500). At this point it seemed extremely unprofessional and I explained no, the job was originally to be completed in 2-3 weeks, here we are 8 weeks later and it is not completed. I informed him I was abiding his contract and the remaining $5000 would be paid when the job was completed. More time went by, no fence. Finally the first week of Aug the fence was installed. As they were installing it I noticed it was scratched everywhere, if you even touched the fence the paint would peel off, every spot where they had put a screw in was chipping. It was extremely low quality and not what we were told we were getting, it was spray painted, not powdercoated. We immediately contacted Mike and informed him of the problem. He told us over the phone he knew the paint job was bad he just wanted the inspection to pass and he would remove the fence after it passed inspection and have it sandblasted and powdercoated and then re-installed. I informed both Mike and Cheryl as of Aug 15th we would be out of town for 6 weeks, I was hoping to wrap this project up prior to leaving, and was not going to make the final payment until I was able to inspect the quality of the fence. They were well aware of this and said they would have it re-installed prior to me leaving. On aug 10th they showed up to re-install the fence. As they were installing it we noticed the color was a completely different color, it did not match up to our existing fence, on closer inspection they had powdercoated over the top of the spray paint and never sandblasted it, also the color was pastel green and it should have been a hunter green. The installers agreed the color was completely wrong and said they had mentioned this to Cheryl and Mike but they were told to install it anyways. We called Mike, he showed up an hour later with his railing sub-contractor Tim. We explained to him the job was of poor quality, he had promised us it would be sandblasted than powdercoated and the reason we had chosen this product was for low maitenance. Mike went completely wild, saying the job was (profanity) etc etc, screaming and carrying on like a lunatic, throwing color charts at me and swearing nonstop, Tim had kept telling him to calm down. Fortunately we live in a gated community because we had to call security to escort him off our property as he was throwing pieces of aluminum all over the place and making a scene. Tim then tried to control the situation and agreed to remove the fence again and install what we had actually paid for and was originally told we were getting. He said Mike knew the fence was low quality but wanted the inspection to pass so he could get paid. Tim said he would do his best to finish it prior to us leaving. At this point everyone knew we were not going to make the final payment until we returned home. (BTW Nobody from Morisson called, e-mailed or apologized about the incident.) Aug 15th rolls around we are in our car about to leave for 6 weeks we get a call from Tim saying he is there to install the new fence. Fine, we agreed to let the gatehouse let him in. Next day, he needs to come in again, fine we let him in even though we weren't there. Numerous times, I'd say at leat 2 or 3 other times we granted him access to work on the fence while we were out of town. We happened to come home for 3 days the first week of Sept, fence still was not complete, we called Tim, he said he would be over to finish by the time we left again. Of course, he calls us the day we are leaving and wants to come in, fine we let him in to finish. Cheryl calls me and asks if Mike can have access to my property to take photos of the railing, I explained since we had to call security the last time he was on my property, there was no way he was allowed on my property, especially when I am not there. On Sept 10th I receive a threatening e-mail from Cheryl saying Morisson builders is putting a lien on my property because we have not allowed Tim access to work on the fence. I informed her the gatehouse keeps a log of who enters the property and would be happy to get her a copy of the amount of days he has spent at my house. Meanwhile they knew well in advance we were leaving for 6 weeks, they were not going to get paid until we inspected the fence, nobody was even suposed to be working at our property when we were gone, we were so fed up with the process so we allowed them access when we weren't home and the fence STILL wasn't done and now THEY are putting a lien on my property!!! We returned home on Oct 3rd, I sent Cheryl an e-mail, I am home, when is Tim coming to do the final touch ups on the fence, no response, tues Oct 5th, I sent another e-mail, no response. Wenesday I get a call from Tim, he comes by and apologizes to me for lying to Morrison builders ,he apparently kept telling them I was not giving him access and could not get in to work on the gate. Finally on Oct 6th, 5 months later, the job is finished, they apparently released the lien which I still need to research. I would NEVER refer them or recommend them at all. The lack of unprofessionalism, lying, frustration etc that we have had to deal with is absurd. In this day and age companies like this should be out of business.
