Removed the old deck and built a new Trex deck approx 300sq ft with railings for about $13,500. The crew was on time and very organised. Very professional and exquisite craftsmenship.

Bob and his crew installed a Trex deck and Rainescape drainage system at our townhouse in the Spring of 2018. They demoed our existing deck and replaced with a new deck in a larger footprint.
