Just completed a fantastic Trex Transcend deck on our townhome. Told by my neighbor we were the envy of the neighborhood the first day it was completed. I solicited 4 bids and Builders came in well below the other three, enough for me to make several inquiries to try to understand the delta. In the end, I felt complete trust in Dave so I went with him and Builders. This was our first major home project so I was a bit nervous and probably overly thorough, but Dave was patient and provided great explanations. One of the other companies said they could attach directly to the house without the need for rear posts into the patio, but Dave gave me a clear reason why that would not pass code. He even honored a request my neighbor had to install a privacy fence that was non-standard.
The true test of a good contractor is when they accept responsibility for an issue that was related to their work. That happened here–I ended up needing an emergency furnace inspection that ultimately was caused by the non-completion of the intake/exhaust while the deck was being built. Dave covered the cost I incurred. Definitely highly recommended. I plan to use for all my future deck/fence/patio work.
