Chris Hernandez designed and built a beautiful cedar deck for us. He and his partner Ted removed the old, rotting deck, secured all permits and arranged relevant inspections (the inspector said ours was one of the best decks he'd seen), removed the old posts and set new ones to code, and built the exact deck we wanted with a gate and lovely railings. They also added underlayment and a drainage system to keep the patio below the deck dry. They were wonderful to work with, cleaned up beautifully, and were willing to accommodate our schedule, including a two-week delay when a robin built her nest under the old deck and I didn't want her disturbed until the babies had flown away. Chris came back after the cedar had "cured" for several weeks and added a seal coat to the wood surfaces and expanded the step into the three-season porch to make it safer for disabled persons. Both my husband and I are super pleased with the work we had done and especially liked the fact that there were no subcontractors involved: Chris and Ted did all of the work themselves, from beginning to end; they are courteous, professional, hard-working young men. The price was exactly what Chris said it would be and included everything: materials, disposal, permit, labor, etc.
