The entire experience with Charlie Wells was excellent from the moment of initial contact to completion of the project.  I decided to first contact him after doing my research on Angie's List.  I went to his Website one evening and contacted him via email and included my phone number expecting a call the next day or so.  Within the hour I received a call and we set up a visit for him to do an esti...

Job took one week from tear down to completion. Charles and his crew cleaned up each night and removed all trash. He was happy to answer any questions and explain any recommendations fully. I encourage anyone to get a estimate and use him for any decking needs. He also includes a 5 year guarantee with his work.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
 Charles and his crew removed a failing treated pine deck and stairway from the roof on the back of our garage. Replaced it with a treated pine floor and cedar posts and rails. Stairways were 18 steps to the first landing 8ft x 8ft. (apartment entry) then a 4 step to a 20 x 24 ft. deck. Since it was built on a flat rubber roof he also recoated and sealed it (included in price total).

Charles was extremely knowledgable and professional.  On the first meeting to get an estimate, he was punctual and gave me several options with "ball park" figures.  He also gave his recommendations.  This gave me all of the information I needed to make a decision.  I received a written estimate the next day and I scheduled the job. A few days later I wanted to add more to the scope of work.  Agai...

Charles Wells was great from start to finish.  He came out and gave me a bid within a couple of days of my first phone call and started and completed the project the following week.  During his first visit he explained the process in detail, telling me exactly what to expect and exactly how long it would take.  He arrived early every day and worked diligently and proficiently to completion.  I was...

Look no further...Charlie is the man.  After interviewing a dozen deck companies over a three-month period, I felt uneasy about cost/value/expectations of all the others. Our patience paid off...thank God I found Deck the House. Charlie shoots straight and gives professional/logical/cost-effective advice about your outdoor living space. His price quotes are simple and all-inclusive. His carpentry ...

I contacted Mr. Wells on July 2nd and made an appointment with him to come and look at my fence and deck and give me and estimate. The appointment was for July 7th at 2:30 pm but he arrived at 2:15 so I was already impressed as I had contacted other contractors who never showed up. Mr. Wells and I discussed what needed to be done and he made a few suggestions and said that he would work up a propo...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Charles torn down my old fences and deck and built a new deck (468 sq. ft.) and fence (106 ft). He had a really big task ahead of him as my yard had a lot of hidden rocks so it was difficult to sink posts into.

Charles was very prompt in responding to our phone inquires and arrived promptly to begin the job. He was easy to talk to and had ideas to make the deck more visually  pleasing.  His ideas improved our sight lines when sitting on the deck. He finished the complete job in one day, and the area is beautiful again!  It was a very messy job with much sawdust, nails and boards.  At the conclusion of th...

Really exceptional contractor and deck builder.  Charles added an elevated deck to the back of our existing concreted patio.  He was extremely professional during all contacts in person and on the phone.  The deck we wanted was a fairly small project, but he treated it as if it was as important to him as it was to us. I provided the basic design and Charles suggested some changes that made the pro...

After contacting Charles, on 4/21, for a request for proposal he set up a date and time to do this. He arrived on schedule, spent about half an hour discussing our vision and he proposed what the could do based on the terrain and design we had in mind. He said that he would formally send us a proposal with all the dimensions and costs associated with it via email that same day. I received that ema...
