Deck contractors?

Post by Bsuds »

We are needing our deck replaced so would like referrals as well as who to avoid. (Pm me to stay within the rules)

Definitely want composite and probably an aluminum covering.

Been around forever. Good company. reputable and fair.

Your choice may come down more to who is available before next Spring though. Everyone is booked solid. If they're not, well there's you answer for who to stay away from.

You can't find anyone to hire to do stuff right now

Decided to get another season outta the vinyl decking, ppl were not even showing up for quotes and the few who did couldn't provide a def time. A friend of mine is fighting to get a deposit back - work was to have been done in may ( painting not deck tho)

That's debatable. Maybe with a bit of work in a couple of spots.

Will see what response I get from quote requests.

Great news!

And everytime I hear (or in this case, see) someone talking about their deck, makes me think of this old gem

I haven't failed until I quit.

That is why I have a PATIO.
It's bigger, harder, expandable (if needed), is not subject to cold weather shrinkage, and can be smooth or rough as desired. :200:
