The crew with Tim, Cheryl and the other guys (sorry, didn't get the names!) were fantastic! Always willing to talk about the project and to make sure we were getting e...

After struggling with the maintenance of a cedar deck for many years; scraping for paint prep, the tedious painting of spindles and railing, staining deck boards and eventually seeing the start of rotting deck boards - we decided it was time to look at "no maintenance" deck options. We contacted 3 contractors for quotes and design ideas. Jim Funk at Outdoor Solutions got back to us very timely and...

We had a wonderful experience working with Jim and Christy. It was a joy to have Chris working on the deck, too. We replaced an existing wood deck...no expansion. It looks wonderful as does the new railing with added lighting. Couldn't be more pleased.

We received four estimates/quotes from four different contractors/companies, to replace our 25 year old deck with composite decking. Jim and Outdoor Solutions were by far the easiest to work with and the most knowledgeable. Their quote was middle of the pack but they excelled in their knowledge, experience and willingness to work with us. Mike conducted the estimate, and he was also the daily on-s...

The job went great. Excellent crew. They were able to lift up the porch and remove old wood without taking structure apart. Could not have asked for better workers. It looks beautiful and we are very happy. Would not hesitate to hire them again.

I left my name, address, phone number and what we wanted with several contractors. Outdoor Solutions had an answering machine on during the day. I never received a call back, although I received calls back from the other contractors. It is my personal opinion that if you don't bother returning my phone call, for whatever reason, then I really don't want to give you my tens of thousands of dollars....

Thanks for the review [Member Name Removed]. I do think if you tried to call back and actually talk to someone you would of had a much better result.It would of been better than leaving a negative review within a few days of your call.His review should state there was no work completed. He lied. Jim Funk Owner-Outdoor Solutions Inc.
