"I am very happy with my new deck!"

11-14-14

Hi John,

I am very happy with my new deck!  It looks great!  Elmer, Tim and Jerry are very nice and professional. They answered all my  questions. I really appreciated that when they came back today, they power washed the deck. The whole process was an easy and pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend Decks-R-Us to anybody wanting to build a deck.

Thanks so much!

"Your years of experience"

10-21-14

Good morning John

What a transformation; from postage stamp deck to a spacious 2 level, beautiful deck.  We love it; and I don't have to do anything more than keep it clean.....no more staining, etc.

Our next door neighbors said they like it so much, they wish they could have one too.

As for your men, they were terrific.  They were especially careful not to damage our neighbor's grass (townhouses).  We had lots of rain for 2 days prior to construction start and the yards were extremely wet and squishy.  Steel plates made sure the properties were kept intact.  They worked hard, kept us informed and asked us questions if they were unsure about anything.  When the deck was complete, their cleanup was thorough; you wouldn't even know they were here.

The quality of the work is superb.  One factor we considered when selecting our contractor was that decks are all you do.  Your years of experience was exactly what we were looking for.

I will definitely be speaking positively about our experience with your company and recommending you to all our friends.

PS....I am putting the check for the balance due in the mail this morning.  Thanks again.  It is definitely my pleasure to have your company work with us.

"blessed to have someone work on our deck that cares"

9-30-14

John and Melvin,

Wow!  The crew did a fantastic job with the deck.  Lauren and I can not get over how nice the design and look turned out.  It did past the final inspection (of course) and we have been lucky enough to enjoy it with the beautiful weather that we are having.  Please tell Joe and his help that we were blessed to have someone work on our deck that cares and takes great pride in what he does.  Already, the neighbors keep asking who did the deck.  I will always proudly recommend Deck R Us to anyone.

Many thanks,

"it was a stress-free and ultimately rewarding experience!"

9-11-14

Great!  I will send our final payment ASAP. Your folks were very easy to work with.  Communication was generally very good and everyone on the site was respectful and went about their work professionally. And the quality of the work definitely met and/or exceeded all of our expectations.  We are VERY happy with the finished product and we will definitely call you when we 're ready to add the door and stairs to the front of the house.  

About the only constructive criticism I would provide is that it would be helpful for the team to talk to us at the end of the day or week, before they leave (and if we're home) about the work completed thus far and the plan for next day or week.  It didn't matter to us in the end because everything was completed on time and to specs, but it's always nice to be aware of the progress/plan.  

But overall, it was a stress-free and ultimately rewarding experience!  Thanks!

"Thank you so much for our great deck"

7-30-14

WOW, we cannot say enough about our amazing, new deck and were speechless that it took only 2 1/2  days from start to finish. From our initial meeting with John to our wonderful crew, Mo, Jerry, and Tim, to the high quality workmanship and communication,  our experience with  Decks R Us LLC was far beyond what one would expect. Thank you so much for our great deck and customer service. We will definitely be recommending you to all our friends and neighbors.

To all at Decks R Us, we can not thank you enough.

PS living on a golf course, we can't tell you how many people have already stopped to admire your work.

"I really just can't say enough about this whole process"

5-6-14

Hi John

Thank you. I am really flexible with the inspector. Just let me know when to expect him and I will make sure someone is here.  Thank you also for the care instructions. I do have a question. I have a barbecue grill that I had kept on my deck before with a Mat underneath it that I got from Home Depot. It is a mat that is meant to catch any grease and fire resistant.  I am not sure if it is rubber. It is semi hard. Is this something I should put under the grill and if not what would you recommend.

We couldn't be more happier with the deck!  The deck is absolutely beautiful. The crew that came out did an incredible job and paid attention to every detail when constructing the deck.  My husband took note to one detail that left him quite impressed which was how many times throughout the project that he saw the crew using a level.  He noted at one point that when the railings were being installed that each time something was screwed or bolted together, Norm put the level to it before he put the next bolt or screw in.  As I told Joe, this is the 3rd deck we have had in that same spot  

In the 24 years since we have lived here.  I have never felt safe using the prior decks and especially never felt comfortable having people out on them because of the elevation of the deck and it never felt secure or sturdy to me. Before you even step foot on this deck you can see the soundness of it in addition to the craftsmanship.  I am confident that this deck is structurally sound and look forward to having dinner with friends and family on it. I have already had so many positive comments from my family and neighbors about it.  It looks like it is part of the house and not an addition.   Needless to say we are very happy to have found your company after a lot of research and estimates. Your website was the first sign of your attention to detail. Every question that  I could think to ask was already answered on your website.  The entire process from start to finish including the dreaded permit and inspection process was handled by your company with utmost professionalism and detail. I have no doubt our building inspector was equally impressed with this.  I really just can't say enough about this whole process from start to finish and would be honored to recommend your company.  I can honestly say that in all my years as a homeowner and dealing with home repairs and contractors, this is the first time ever that from start to finish of a construction project,  it has been completed without issue, stress and totally as described with each detail fulfilled ( even with mother natures rainy spring weather)!  

Thanks again for all of your hard work and for your compassion and flexibility given my husband's illness!

Sincerely

"They were friendly and respectful"

John,

I forwarded your email to Rick so I am sure he will get back to you.  I also wanted to give you some feedback.  First of all, I LOVE OUR NEW DECK!  It looks beautiful and I am absolutely thrilled!  Second, it was a pleasure doing business with you and your men.  By far the most professional contractors I have ever dealt with.  I loved how quickly you came to the house, looked at the deck and gave us a price.  I think we had the whole thing decided in about 24 hours.  More importantly, I thought your men were great.  They were friendly and respectful and worked really hard.  Rick and I were both very impressed with their hard work and professionalism.  They worked in all of that snow and tons of mud yet the deck and driveway were spotless when they left.  I would highly recommend you to anyone we know is thinking about a deck.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

"This was truly a painless and pleasant experience"

Hi John and everyone at Decks-R-Us,

John and I wanted to take the time to express our deepest gratitude for building such a gorgeous deck for us! There are not enough words to articulate our appreciation for the amazing job completed and the opportunity to work with such kind and experienced people.

At the beginning of this project, we had about 6 contractors come out and you, by far, blew us away. Your sketches were far more detailed allowing us to visualize what to expect. Any changes that we wanted made, a new sketch was sent over within 24 hours. You even allowed us to refine our deck at the last minute with ease. We realize we were not your only customer, but you certainly made us feel that way with such personalized attention and quick email responses.

Elmer and his crew were more than courteous and considerate; it was as if they were working on their own home. These guys worked under probably the worst weather conditions possible. It must have snowed 3 times in the middle of this project. Not once did they complain about how miserable it was outside. They showed up to work with smiles every day!

We consider ourselves very lucky to have such talented people working on our project. We were impressed daily by the extraordinarily high degree of professionalism, competence and organization of this group. Even more impressive was how your company brings the materials they are going to use that day. Unlike other deck projects we’ve seen in the neighborhood, there were no materials piled up all over the driveway. This was truly a painless and pleasant experience. You have ALL truly surpassed our expectations!

We are literally in awe of the craftsmanship of this deck. We have already received many compliments on our beautiful deck. We will, without question, enthusiastically recommend Decks-R-Us to anyone looking to build a deck.

We look forward to some warmer weather when we can relax on the deck. We expect to enjoy the deck for many, many years!!

Many thanks!!

"winter deck building"

2/14/14

John, Joe, Pappy, and Norm,

Throughout the years, we’ve completed many home improvement projects requiring professional assistance.  Without question, our deck building project has been the most satisfying one we’ve undertaken!

We were a bit skeptical when we learned that the deck project agreed to in August would most likely be completed in January or February.  And what a February it’s been!  Joe, Pappy, and Norm showed up the day after a ten inch snowfall and made short work of our small, fourteen year-old deck.  I couldn’t imagine how they were going to dig post holes until I saw the size of the auger on the bobcat.  Joe drilled at least ten holes and never hit any of the underground gutter drains that crisscrossed the back yard – sometimes you’re lucky; but being careful sure helped, too.

The next day was the ice storm from “you know where” and it kept the guys away for a day.  The following day, they were back at it after removing ice from holes and materials.  The following days were single digit mornings that prompted a few extra cups of coffee but no work slowdown.

Joe, Pappy and Norm felt like our extended family.  They answered all of our questions and provided us with a new deck that exceeds our expectations.  Too bad we had 20 inches of snow two days after it was completed.  We’re hoping for an early spring so we can begin to enjoy our new living space.

 

Thanks once again!

Jere and Jeanne

The pergola is absolutely beautiful!

Hi John,

The pergola is absolutely beautiful!  It was more perfect than I had imagined.  And the men that built it were excellent, very professional and very courteous.  They cleaned up everything and I enjoyed watching them as they worked.

Thank you again for adding something so amazing to our home.
