I had HW construction out to build our deck on our front porch. We have a large area on the front of our house that wraps around with a railing and pillars. It all needed to be demolished and replaced. After interviewing several contractor the choice was clear. We choose HW Construction for several reasons. They met with us and were right on time. Hugh was very knowledgeable and had a quote to us the very next day. Once on the job they were there everyday until completion and the deck and railing turned out absolutely amazing. HW Construction communicated with us through out the process and the job turned out perfect. I would highly recommend using them

Bruce arrived on time with all the pieces he had prefabricated and within a short time the rails were installed. Subsequently we discovered that one rail could not deal with lateral force in the way we had hoped. We consulted with Bruce and came up with an alternative. Bruce returned a couple of days later and made the necessary changes at no cost to us.During all of this Bruce was thoroughly professional, he was easy to deal with and did good tidy work.

I have filed an complaint against Brock Heath from Heath Stairworks with the State Licensing Board against and BBB. I hired him for a handrail installation in our home. I stated from the very beginning that I did not want any red tones in the stain and I have it in writing. I even met with him to choose the color, a walnut shade. The day the railing was installed I was at work and my husband was able to work from home so someone would be there. The installer, Russ, showed up with the wrong post and after my husband told him he didn't like it, he called Brock. A few minutes later, Brock called my husband and tried to convince him to keep it but my husband said no. Russ then left for a few hours to get the one I had chosen. Later that day, before applying the stain he showed it to my husband. My husband said it was very dark and had reddish tones so Russ said he would lighten it. After that, he showed my husband a stain sample and insisted that after lightening it, he had gotten the color I had chosen with Brock. No alternative was offered. My husband, who, was not involved in the decision making process and was only home to open the door, was under the impression that they were professionals and had picked everything out with me, agreed. I got home around 7.00 pm and Russ was still there. Since he showed up with the wrong post and took almost 2 hours to get a new one, got off to a late start and was still there. When I saw the railing, my first reaction was that I loved it. Russ did a good job. I asked about the color and he said that the wood had taken the stain that way and to see how it looked the next day once it was dried. I sent Brock an email saying that we were happy with the work Russ had done. The next morning when I got up I realized that the stain was red!! I immediately took pictures and sent them to Brock. On my way to work I called him and what I encountered was unbelievable. Brock said that the color I picked out was Mahogany. I told him that there was NO way I would pick that color because it has red tones and that I picked a walnut shade. The conversation only got worse from there. Brock blamed me and threatened to put a lien on my property and send me to collections if I didn't pay him. At that point, all I wanted to know was what my options were to fix it. Brock offered nothing and was a complete BULLY sending me several threatening emails. When I asked him why he had shown me stain samples with red tones when I had indicated in writing that I didn't want, his answer was that "It is not Heath Stairworks' responsibility to interpret "red" the same way you do" I am beyond appalled with Brock's behavior. I tried to reach an agreement with him and even offered to split the cost to have it re-stained and his answer was no. We have just paid a lot of money for something we are not happy with and have been blamed, threatened and bullied by Brock Heath. I'm sure that there are many great handrail installers out there, please keep our story in mind when considering Heath Stairworks.

I can't recommend Dawson and her husbands highly enough. I am a single, professional woman who is pretty handy around the house, but there are some jobs that are beyond my skill level, or that I just don't have the time to do. I lucked into finding Hire My Husband online and I could not be happier. Dawson walked through the house with me and let me make a "honey do" list of all the things I wanted repaired/installed. She gave me a budget and we prioritized the order in which I wanted everything done and to make it most cost effective. Everyone who worked on my house was punctual, trustworthy, knowledgeable and professional. Anyone who needs help around the house, large or small jobs, should hire Hire My Husband.

MOORE CONSTRUCTION QUALITY FENCES & DECKS

Stan did an excellent job dealing with all my questions and requests for price quotes to evaluate different options. After reviewing all the samples and pricing we decided on Trex composite decking using hidden fasteners and 2x6 cedar hand rails. Stan started work on schedule about one week after we had signed the contract. After the work had started I had forgotten to request an additional 3ft by 4 ft section be added to connect the deck to some existing stone steps . Stan was able to extend the deck to accommodate the request without charging for the additional labor or materials. The installation took about 4 days and everything looked great.

From start to finish, Justin and Ian were a pleasure to work with. They are extremely professional and have a wealth of expertise. They were able to provide us with valuable feedback regarding materials and construction. They helped us work with the City when we made changes to our plans. We had other contractors on the job site and they did an excellent job working and communicating with them. Justin and Ian were very flexible in meeting our needs. Their customer service is superior and they genuinely care about their customers. We will definitely be using them again!

I am very happy with the results. I discussed what I wanted with Fuzzy and was very specific about the materials I wanted used in building the new porch - pressure treated wood and redwood - he did exactly as I requested and did a great job. He built an extremely sturdy front porch, widened the stairs and made them less steep, adding an additional step so that the stairs are easier to ascend and descend. He built easy-to-grasp handrails and painted the entire porch as agreed in three coats of non-slip, water-resistant paint in the agreed upon color that matches the house exterior. It did take about a month between the time that we agreed to the project for it to come up in his work rotation - but that is normal with contractors - you have to wait your turn. And it was definitely worth the wait!!! Once the project started it was done in three days. The employees were very polite, friendly and well-mannered, they arrived timely and cleaned up after themselves every day, leaving the driveway and surrounding area immaculate. About a month after the job was completed, the state inspectors arrive and it passed without question - they told us that Fuzzy had done a terrific job. We already knew that, but it was nice to have it confirmed by another professional! I will be hiring Fuzzy again in the future to do other work on my mobile home.

Extremely well, Robert can do just about everything. Our house threw a lot of curveballs at him and each time he hit it out of the park. Listen to him closely when he makes suggestions or recommendations, he is usually right. I would trust him with any situation like having a good friend look after your home for you. Our home went from neglected mid century to our magazine cover quality forever home.

Recent Review: It is difficult to find craftsmen these days and this group of people are all top notch. Their work was exceptional, they were always on time, they cleaned up (yeah) and they were all excellent communicators - from the sales staff to the office staff to the installers. We originally had carpeted stairs from the main floor to our media room. After ripping up the carpet, we discovered that the stairs had been poorly installed and we decided it was important to replace the stairs and do the job right. We explored several options and decided to hire DRS Stairs to replace the stairs with tiger wood. They ripped out the old stairs and custom built a complete replacement, with paint grade risers and solid tiger wood treads. They replaced the railing and post with cherry and the balusters are paint grade. Because one of our walls was not true, the installer had to make a few on-site changes. Being a perfectionist, his changes ended up actually improving our original design. We used DRS Stairs on this job for stairs; however, we have a planned master bath remodel and, becauseDRS are also a general contractor, we intend to solicit a bid from them for that project, too. If I could give them an A+, that would be our score for DRS Stairs.

Recent Review: .I had about 900 sq. ft. of redwood deck and 200 ft. of handrails that badly needed cleaning and refinishing. I found Summit Deck Doctor on Angie's List, and checked out their website. They had prices clearly stated there so I could calculate the approximate cost (actually, there was one error on the price list which threw my calculation off, but it has since been corrected). The owner, Rupert, came to make a quotation. He measured and inspected my decks, and made several useful recommendations. I decided to have the decks done, but only the handrail top caps, to save money. The vertical slats and posts of the handrail don't take as much abuse from the sun as horizontal surfaces, so I thought I could pressure wash and stain them myself. They arrived on schedule and went right to work. Their pressure washer is industrial strength and did the job well and quickly. They also washed the underside of my decks and applied fungicide all over. Because parts of my decks are 12 ft. above ground, they couldn't do a thorough job washing that part, but made their best effort. Rupert explained all that before I signed the contract. Sporadic rainfall caused one or two days delay in applying the stain, but Rupert called every day to check with me, and they came to do the staining as soon as conditions permitted. The job was completed on time, and looks really good. The wood had gotten grey and weathered, and now looks like redwood again. One plank was replaced with new redwood, so I can compare the refinished wood with the new. It's not exactly the same, but close. Overall, I am very pleased with the results. One piece of advice: staining the verticals on the handrails was VERY tedious. Doing the top caps is the easy part, because they are flat and easy to reach. The caps are probably less than 10% of the total handrail effort. So if you can afford it, have Rupert do the entire handrail. But if you want to save money and can handle a paintbrush, negotiate a price for the pressure wash and fungicide application of the handrails, and stain them yourself. He doesn't have a price listed for that, but I'm sure he will try to accommodate you. Rupert and his crew (Michael) are friendly, conscientious and easy to work with. And there's no BS sales pitch. I highly recommend them.
