Jim was very responsive and very flexible in scheduling this small job. Brandon did excellent work, and the aluminum railing looks great and will be much less maintenance than the previous wood railing.

Since we were working on the neighbors job on [Member Information Removed] point we decided we would do a simple re-rail with Westbury Tuscany aluminum railing. We value all referals and were happy to fit this client in on Lake Minnewashta. I grew up on this lake so it's always a honor to work on a property this close to my original stomping grounds.

Outdoor Solutions is a great company! We highly recommend them. The owner, Jim, is a great guy. Very kind and honest. They have been in business for a long time and I know why! Our builder, Chris, did an excellent job and was so nice to have at our house. We are very happy with our beautiful deck and look forward to spending a lot of time on it for many years.

This family choose us because we had more vision than the competition. Instead of redecking this project we tore it down and turned it 90 degrees. They trusted my opinion and agreed to follow my suggestions. After years of having there old deck and happy with it they realized the new design gave them much better sight lines because they did not have to look down the huge gaps between the decking a...

Super happy with this job and with this customer. We installed AZEK Vintage Mahogany on a 300 square Foot redo. Totally change the whole appearance of this house. We were able to incorporate a trap door over a coal loading area. Westbury Tuscany series made this deck a charm to look at. I would not be surprised if we had many referrals in the weeks and months to come. Thank you for choosing outdoo...

Working with Outdoor Solutions and Chris specifically was fantastic. Professionalism, curtesy, and most of all, final product all were beyond my expectations. Good, fair price (not the cheapest, but far from most expensive of all the estimates I received). I would definitely recommend and hire again!

Outdoor Solutions completed a new 21’ x 16’ deck project with maintenance free decking and aluminum railing (with drink rail) at our home. The project included a new stairway from the deck to our backyard and an under-decking system for water drainage to keep our underneath patio space dry. Jim was very helpful in providing input to design decisions and recommending products to be used in the proj...

Another great project from design to implementation. Our son Mike Funk with Stonewood Hardscapes did an amazing job on the rock stairs and patio and walkway bringing the back yard to the front of the house. We did an amazing deck with a galvanized sheet metal under decking system. We wrapped the support posts with AZEK PVC wraps. It was a well coordinated project from start to finish. We are trill...

My experience with Jim, the owner, and his crew of Chris, Cory and Mark was A+. Jim helped guide me with the solution that best fit my needs and budget.

Jim and his crew were all professional, courteous, respectful and absolutely wonderful to work with. I would definitely ...

We are continually blessed with some of the nicest folks we have ever met. The homeowner and the inspector were top shelf. We removed an old Redwood deck and were able to work with the inspector not to have to drill new footings into an existing concrete patio. The homeowner did not want to replace her patio and we were able to help with that. She now has a wonderful TREX deck with a Westbury Alum...

I usually do not write reviews, especially if they are not good reviews. However, I was not pleased with the work from Outdoor solutions and think it is important to pass this information on to the next customer. The work we had done was several years ago at our old home. We had this company build a large deck, remove tree stumps and do landscaping of the back yard around an existing pool. They al...

This review came out of the blue after 7 years. I’m unsure as to the motive for something coming out so long after the work we did on your project. Your project was completed and signed off by the city inspectors and no problems were noted. If it was a personality conflict that should be addressed to us at the company in a timely Manner, as would most clients. To imply that Jim “pulled on your hea...

The project went smoothly and was accomplished in a reasonable amount of time. Our builders, Derek and Ethan had to deal with difficult terrain and problems in getting materials to the site (As I've learned was common this summer). They overcame these challenges and built us a deck to be proud of. While the old deck detracted from the appearance of our house, our new deck is an asset! We are very ...

Great review from a great family. These folks came out to the shop in Prior Lake and bought a deck in St. Paul. They were great to deal with.

The process went very smoothly, and the new deck is fantastic. Jim was super helpful answering my questions about various materials choices during the planning process, and Chris and his crew did an excellent job on the construction. They also accomodated some last minute design changes from me, including coming back several weeks later to install a gate that I requested after the project had begu...

Were so glad that we were able to fit this project in.2020 has been a challenging year with our record sales and the distributors running out of decking. We were fortunate enough to pick some popular colors and buy in quantity and have them at our 5 acre shop.These folks benefited from that. That's what you get when you hire a company that has been in business 23 years as of 2020. I wish we would ...
