I’m not happy with end product. Patio was smaller than agreed which I noticed after the pour. It was of a higher elevation than we agreed. It did not have a contrasting color that I asked for. It looks cheap. I’m doing the project, a significant portion of my lawn was destroyed, a tree was damaged and several plants were also damaged. Careful car didn’t seem to be taken - instead, big machinery wa...

We hear you about the project we just finished. We never said there wouldn't be traffic to your yard during construction. In fact you signed a contract that states this. We don't go out of our way to destroy our customers property in fact we we take great caution not to do so. We even put the project on hold because of the rain because we didn't want to destroy your property and as you can see fro...

Our new deck looks terrific! We had an old, elevated wooden deck that was likely over 20 years old. We solicited multiple quotes from various deck builders, but Building Character won our business because of their product offering, extensive planning and design service, their competitive pricing, and their personal touch. We had a fairly large deck that spanned the entire house and we wanted a new...

I couldn't be happier with my new deck and pergola. From the initial quote through project completion, Building Character was easy to work with and provided frequent, clear communication. They helped manage my budget by discussing options and trade offs. The crew was extremely organized, efficient, courteous, and professional, and they kept the job site very clean. They completed the job in just 3...

Jared, Jennifer & the building crew, who consisted mainly of Tim and Josh, did an outstanding job. The workmanship is top notch & some neighbors have already inquired about who built it. We made some changes along the way during construction, all of which were no problem for them. We are very happy with our Fiberon deck so far & look forward to enjoying it for many years go come.

We don’t paint concrete porches nor do we build window flower boxes is the reasons we never sent a proposal. If we would have known that before setting a appointment for estimate. We try to obtain as much information from our costumers before even setting a appointment. We do apologize for inconvenience and look forward to any future projects you may have.

My wife and I needed to have our deck updated. We didn’t need anything structurally changed, just replace the decaying wood with composite material. We also had a small side porch that was falling away from the house that we wanted to replace. We had 4 estimators come out and provide us with estimates and recommendations. Some were too expensive or recommended work that we just didn’t need to have...
