Removal went according to plan. New installation had problems. After four years deck rails have begun to splinter - railings are breaking apart. Stairs which were poorly constructed have begun to separate and are hazardous to use. Called them several times leaving messages as to problem asking for someone to look at problem - no return call. Finally called and left message that I would be willing ...

Did not go so well all in all deck looks pretty good but service after the fact really sucks. About 30 or so spindles were split out due to them using a nail gun on them and several of the decking boards were not even nailed down. Called kip and he finally came out and said the spindles were just the wood splitting and any blind man can see that it was due to the nail gun. He said he would come ou...

The work done was professional and the workers were prompt and did quality work. They also cleaned up the worksite after the project was complete. On the down side, the owner kept postponing the start of the project and was not responsive to phone calls. Because it was not a huge project it was to be worked in between other projects.

They worked with our home builder to obtain a variance permit and attended the county zoning meeting. A week bef...

Kip and his team did the original deck when we first built our house. We had them come back to last November to re-do a large part of the deck as it needed redoing. They did a great job. However Kip told us to wait over the winter to stain the deck. This we did. Over the winter all the wood warped and started to bow. We tried to call Kip to have him come and look at it. He said he would come out b...
