In April of 2020, this past customer of ours contacted us asking to remove their old deck, and to create a new outdoor living space in their back yard. After many rounds of designs we came up with a plan. DECK: The new deck consists of using Azek materials from their Arbor Collection (Island Oak Color), white Premier Railing in white, with cap sleeves that wrap around certain sections of the deck. SITTING WALL: There is a new sitting wall in Rivercrest bluff in color, topped off with a ledgestone coping unit. STONE WALKWAY / FIRE PLACE AREA: We installed a new 16 foot circle patio with a UniLock gas fireplace in the center and stone walkways throughout the back yard.

Dino and his team built us a beautiful screened porch and fixed a decade long drainage issue on the side of our home. I would highly recommend them. They cover a wide range of skills, so you don't need to hire multiple contractors for your outdoor projects.

DM Outdoor living was contracted to remove an old deck and replace it with a new composite deck and the final quality of the work was outstanding. During the installation process I noticed an error that deviated from the design. Worse still, this error wasn't noticed until after the composite decking was laid. I pointed out the error & the complexity to resolve is to Dino and his reply was "we wil...

As with most projects, we started out getting multiple bids. Of the 4 bids that we got, Dino was the ONLY one that talked with us about the structure stability of the house when adding a deck on the upper level. He really made us comfortable & secure in our decision to go with him. We could not have been happier with the outcome! Dino & his crew did a great job! Would definitely recommend DM to ot...

I had various estimates to repair or replace my old deck and went a considerable way toward doing it myself. I finally had several estimates to fully replace the old deck with high quality Timbertech / Azek materials. D&M came in with most favorable pricing and impressed me as honest and reliable people. Dino took a look at the layout of the old deck and very quickly proposed a reconfiguration wit...

D&M Outdoor Living Spaces designed and built our deck in 2002 and it still looks fantastic!! We use it for as many days a year as weather permits. I recommend them highly and have continued to use them for other projects, including the expansion of the deck to a third level about 8 years ago.

The quality of the new deck was fantastic. Even the inspector marveled at the craftsmanship. Our only quibble was that the yard was left a bit of a mess with screws and nails. We weren't home most of the time the work was being done, however, and it is always hard communicating purely through email/phone. While we don't plan to have a new deck installed for a long time, we would definitely hire Di...

Dino and his crew were great. They came to demolish part of our old deck early on so plumbing work could be done. They worked with the village to finally get permits and permission from the association and built a beautiful deck that met with their approval. When we moved and needed some landscape work done, we immediately thought of Dino and called. We are looking forward to working with him now ...
