Deck and Enclosed Gazebo

JR’s custom decks did a great job for us and I would not hesitate to recommend his company to anyone wanting quality work. Details: We wanted our deck replaced and were also considering a $20,000.00 project to build a closed gazebo to house an 8′ X 10′ exercise spa. We called an Angie?s List highly rated company and they sent a salesman that was mainly interested in hearing himself talk and not listening to what we wanted done. We also had difficulty getting plans out of them. They deserve an ?F? rating but the actual company never did any work so I didn?t rate them. We called JR and asked up front if he was sending a salesman. He said we are a small company and I perform all of these functions. We have a dedicated crew, led by Mike the carpenter (who is really good by the way). The same people come to your house every day, on time and ready to work. To be cautious we had our deck replaced first just to make sure that this company performed up to expectations. The deck that they tore out was horrible and cheap construction. The replacement deck is top notch. Quality construction, sturdy framing, screwed boards, not nailed, good steps and railing with a beautiful circular bench around a large live oak. After we saw the quality of the work on the deck and the ease of working with JR we decided to have him quote our fully enclosed gazebo. He built the 12′ X 16′ gazebo as an extension of the deck. Without going into all the details suffice it to say that we are fully satisfied with the job and the gazebo is beautiful inside and out. JR is not some slick talking guy that makes you want to double check to make sure that your wallet is secured. He will quote you up front what the defined project will cost. Is he the cheapest guy around? No he isn’t the cheapest but you wouldn’t be looking at Angie’s List trying to find a quality, honest builder either if that was all that you were looking for. We feel that we got both a fair deal and outstanding work from JR and his very capable head carpenter Mike.

Description of work:
