After meeting with Matt about replacing our old deck, he promptly measured it, gave us a bid, created a timeline and started work. His crew was focused, hard working and knowledgeable. When we wanted to modify the project, he listened and did it well. We are so impressed by the high quality of workmanship and love our new deck!

Matt and his team were very cordial and we’re a delight to work with. They were very quick to respond, he worked with us on providing the right guys that were within our budget, suggested things to us that we didn’t have expertise in and weren’t looking at, and you could always text him and his guys any time post projects. Great professional guys and I don’t think we’d go through anyone else with the resources Matt has through his team,. Highly recommend them
