We wanted to replace our existing 12 ft X 12 ft cedar planked backyard deck with Trex brand decking and add a 23 ft X 20 ft Trex extension of that deck. While attempting to get bids from many contractors for this work we encountered all sorts of negative issues ranging from missed appointments,no callbacks to messages left on voice mail, clear lack of experience and/or knowledge, verbal bids not in writing, and even one contractor who provided a bid by e-mail based solely on a picture of our back yard that we sent, never visiting the site at all. The bids we did receive were much higher than we expected.
We found Lee's Enterprizes on the Trex website where he had stellar reviews from others he had worked with. When I called Lee and left a message, I was pleased to get a callback within a very short time and we discussed our project in detail over the phone. We set an appointment at our house for the next day. Lee arrived on time as promised and spent a good deal of time with us going over what we wanted to do and the rough plan I had drawn. He carefully reviewed the site, measuring, taking notes, and discussing options for us to consider. He was professional and very personable, clearly knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of construction, remodeling and deck installation using Trex brand products. We were impressed with him both as a person and a contractor based on the reviews we found. He promised us a bid within 2 days. He sent a detailed, written bid ahead of his promised time frame at a cost that was much more reasonable than the others we had received.
We decided to go with him for our project. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made. He kept in touch with us as we got approval from our homeowner's association for the deck extension, applied for all of the permits needed from the city and helped direct me to the proper offices to pay for the building permits. He and his crew began work on the day promised and continuously worked on the project every weekday until it was completely finished, including in the rain.
Their work was of the highest quality. A neighbor, experienced in construction and finish cabinetry work observed them during the building process and made a point of telling us how impressed he was with how they constructed our deck, using nailing and framing techniques that take more time and effort than others but ensure higher quality results. Lee and all of his team were always helpful and cooperative including carefully removing the screws and stacking the cedar planks from the existing deck at my request so I could reuse the wood in the future for my woodworking hobby. The completed deck is absolutely beautiful, everything we hoped for.
I can confidently and highly recommend Lee to anyone who needs any type of remodeling or construction work, not just decks. He is a true craftsman and can be relied upon to do what he says he will do when he says he will do it. He and his crew are personable, friendly, helpful, honest, experienced, knowledgeable, and hardworking. We could not have hoped for a better experience or a better result at a very reasonable cost.
