Reviews in Fort Lauderdale to Building a Pergola

My saga with Roger and Knock on Wood (KOW) Pergolas began last January, not 2018, but 2017. When selecting a company to build my pergola, I tried my best to do my research and to try and find a legitimate and honest company. KOW wasn't the cheapest by far, but at the time they had a few good online reviews. I wasn't looking for the cheapest, I wanted to find someone to get the job done right. In an effort to be transparent with this review, I've created a Google Drive and shared the link below that contains every single text between myself and Roger along with pictures of what they left me with, for people to judge for themselves and make up their own mind regarding my authenticity. If you take the time to read through my google drive, I suspect most of you will come to the same realization that I did, I was too complacent with Roger and should have held him and KOW accountable much sooner. You'll see that things went south from the very beginning, I should've realized that I was facing an uphill battle when it took him two months to get my plans made up, another 2 months after that to start building. Maybe I should've realized that I was in trouble when he laid the foundation for a 14x28 instead of a 16x28 pergola, which is clearly stated in his text in pic 2228 on the Google folder and on the invoice I shared, or maybe I should've realized when he asked me to front him more money (his text in pic 2240 in the Google folder) because he was short on cash, or when he tried to get away with using PT2 lumber, when the invoice in the Google drive clearly states PT1 lumber and now I have support columns peeling or cracking, or when I paid him in June of 2017 for the work he had subcontracted to Swank to build the footers of my pergola, and didn't pay Swank till mid-December, and he only paid Swank after I found out that Shannon had threatened to lien my property (texts pic 2262, 2264, 2254, 2288 in the Google folder) or maybe I should've realized when he installed the roof and I had a waterfall inside my pergola every time it rained. All along the way it was excuse after excuse from Roger, newborn baby, crashed truck, surgeries, etc... But in the end, he didn't deliver what her promised. He tells me in his final text that I wasn't reasonable, but let my evidence show whether I was reasonable or not. If anything, I think I was too complacent to KOW's nonsense that transcribed over the past 20 months. You judge for yourself and determine if you want to hire Roger and KOW, I personally wouldn't let them hang a picture frame in my house, much less trust them with building anything of scale. I tried cutting a deal with him, build me a privacy wall with lumber that doesn't warp and touch up the paint on the Pergola, but he replied that I was being unreasonable in my request (texts pic 2283-2290 in the Google folder). In the end, Roger and KOW chose to walk away and leave me a with a poorly built pergola that is defective at every angle or corner you look at. From this point forward, I would caution any new positive reviews that pop up after this one, unless these new positive reviews demonstrate an invoice or authentic payments made to KOW. Considering all the pictures of pergolas they frequently post on Facebook and Instagram, I would have expected more positive reviews, that should've been red flag #1. I would also suspect the majority of existing positive reviews are friends and family of KOW. [*** Link removed ***]

Everything about our experience with Dynamic Colors was professional and top-notch. Anthony was honest and professional during the bid walk-through, advising that we didn't need all of the work done yet that we thought we did (saving us money and costing him money). The quote he provided was competitive to others we had received, and I really went with Dynamic because Anthony struck me as trustworthy and reliable. My instincts were correct. The communication leading up to and during the project was excellent, and the work ended up being very high quality. We are extremely pleased!

The Grove Handyman
Overall, Roger is a true professional with wide knowledge of how to best address and resolve the issues in the best manner possible. Since the first day we met he was very punctual in explaining to me the work and providing me with a fair quote a few days later. He has an excellent team to backup his promise on quality and timely service. Highly recommend and will definitely use him again.

Florida Standard Roofing Inc
We are new homeowners and new to South Florida. Having been warned about finding contractors who are honest, professional and thorough, we were nervous about having this work done. From first contact with Daniel, I felt at ease and knew he would do a good job for a fair price. In fact, several other local contractors were willing to quote us for full fascia replacement (as we initially thought that is what needed to be done) for the entire perimeter of the house. Daniel explained to us that as our cement tile roof is already 22 years old, we should just repair the fascias that are rotten and do the rest when we replace the roof. This lowered our costs and proved to us that Florida Standard works with full integrity and knows that by being honest and professional, we will call on them when the roof does need replacing. The work included removing two rows of tile, replacing the underlay and installing new flashing with the new fascia board. The workers were on time, courteous and cleaned up the area at the end of the day. When working on an older roof, there were some small snags but they were able to come up with what we hope will be proper solutions and Daniel explained everything so we understood what was happening. Would not hesitate to recommend them and they will be our go-to roofing contractors going forward.

Apex Contractors Inc
Since we have purchased our first home back in 2010, we have been using Apex Contractors for all of our home projects. They have beautified our bathroom, bedrooms, living areas, and backyard. Their pricing is fair and they complete each project to beyond our expectations. I wouldn't think of hiring anyone else and recommend them to all my friends and family. If you want a quality, professional job every time, this is the company you want working for you!

Sergio's Koi Pond & Waterfall
I have hired Sergio for several landscaping projects over the last 6 years with amazing results. I first used him to fabricate a waterfall and stream, coral rock wall and pergola in my backyard and had stunning results. For my most recent project, Sergio designed a beautiful concrete deck for my dog's section of the backyard. Prior to constructing the backyard, Sergio did a total clean-up by removing the old mulch and gravel and replacing it with new mulch. As always, Sergio's price was reasonable and the results were fantastic. Sergio is very professional, reliable and meticulous with his work. This project was completed within the timeframe promised. I would recommend Sergio to anyone without hesitation.
