I found Deck Specialist on Angie's List and we contacted them plus two others. They had the best price for the work we wanted done. Marlon and his crew started on 8/6/12, They took down the existing deck and removed shrubs to make room for the new front porch and ramp that day. They started with replacing the back deck first. They installed stairs that went from the back deck down to yard. When they got the back deck and stairs pretty much done, they began on the front. The side deck was the last to work on. They worked for two weeks (with the exception of two days, which we were told about). They completed the front porch and ramp today, 8/25, and gave the whole deck the finishing touches. A gate was also installed at the top of the ramp. Our new deck looks wonderful and is so sturdy. We are so pleased. Marlon also repaired a few loose shingles on our roof and reset a fence post that had come loose from the concrete. Their work is outstanding along with their professionalism, work ethic, and friendliness! They have our highest recommendation!
