Guy came out to look at porch and we thought it went well. He said he would have a quote out to us in a few days. Never got an email or phone call back. My husband called twice to leave messages and no one has called back. I find this to be very rude. If you dont want the job, just say you are too busy right now.

In January, 2020 we contracted Deck Specialist to do a number of home improvement projects: dormer siding replacement, front door threshold replacement, painting a 3 story chimney, and garage door trim replacement. While Deck Specialist's company name does not suggest they are capable of remodeling / general contracting work, their work is excellent...and I am difficult to satisfy. Marlon quoted t...

Darn near perfect. Marlon was very responsive to our needs and question. We went through three design iterations to develop a design that met our desires and budget. Marlon was helpful and accommodating each step of the way. Once we agreed on the final design, we scheduled, he and his crew showed up as promised and got right to work. It was nice to watch a professional at his craft delivering what...

Very well in the beginning. They encountered several challenges with the existing deck and mastered all of them. However, after a year or so later, we encountered some warping in several of the locations, especially one of the two planters to the right of the deck, it took several weeks for the owner of the company, Marlon, to respond to our inquiries for estimates as to repair. After 2 months plu...

They did beautiful work. However, lady in office does not answer phone or return calls. Deck was finished June 1, and I’ve been trying to schedule sealing the deck since September (this is December). Finally, finally got through and made appointment for December 3 for the estimate and have not heard from or seen anybody. Have finally hired somebody else. I do not recommend dealing with this compan...

The deck constuction quality was magnificent. Marlon was very professional and his crew (Mike, Adam, Timmy, Tyler and Randy) worked diligently each day to stay on schedule. Deck was completed on time and far more beautiful than we could ever imagined. The entire staff was very dedicated to ensure a quality job well done. Thanks to Marlon and the entire staff for their outstanding workmanship and p...
