What our client says about us!

Decked Out Builders, where do I begin. I couldn’t have asked for a better company. Came out with in days of contacting. Provided a quick estimate, with in minutes. Started my job 3 weeks before planned and completed with in a week. Kristen and Tony went above and beyond. I mean communication was wonderful and I was informed of everything that was happening while it was happening. Our deck turned out better then we ever could have imagined. Tony is such a knowledgeable and productive worker. He answered any questioned I had and also took the time to actually talk to us and treat us like people not just another customer. Kristen was amazing from start to finish. She is the one behind the scenes making things happen. All in all a wonderful experience and Decked Out Builders will be my first and only call for future projects. Thank you for making our dream deck a reality.

Decked Out Builders completed our screened-in porch and deck project earlier this summer.  To say we are loving the finished space would be an understatement. Tony and Kristen and their team walked us through the entire project and were very responsive to any questions we had.  We started with a picture of what we were looking for and they were able to exceed expectations.

— Mike Barber

We were extremely impressed with our experience with Decked Out Builders.  They built a new covered porch off the back of our house and it turned out AMAZING!  When our friends and family come over “Wow!” is the first thing everyone says when they see our new patio.  They showed up on time each day.  Even though they were at our house several days in a row they cleaned up everything at the end of each day so our kids could still use the backyard area safely.  Tony recommended a taller height than we had originally planned and a few ideas and everything turned out PERFECT.  We had to wait a month for an estimate and I think over a month for them to be able to do the work but it was well worth the wait.  Thank you Decked Out Builders!

— Michelle Bohannan

Our entire experience with Decked Out Builders was great!  Not only was their craftsmanship impeccable, their communication, responsiveness and professionalism were equally impressive. It is clear Tony takes pride in his work and wants to ensure the homeowner is happy with the end result.  We would highly recommend Decked Out Builders, in fact, we already have!  If you are looking for an honest company with fair pricing, quality work and clear communication, Decked Out Builders is it.  We are very happy with our new, resurfaced, two-tier, 750 sq. feet deck. Counting down the days to our gazebo refresh too!

— Sharon Bellock

The team from Decked out Builders exceeded my expectations.   They managed to do the work requests earlier than I had hoped for.  The quality was great and the team very polite and professional.  I would definitely recommend them, and will be using them next year for a much larger project.

— John Lucas

Our beautiful covered deck was built by Decked Out Builders. Tony and Ben were absolutely great to work with and were always willing to answer any questions we had. They showed up on time, were very professional, and worked hard throughout the day. Our covered deck was finished very quickly, even faster than the estimated time we were given! I also have to give a shout out to Kristen. She was always quick to reply to any emails I sent her and was wonderful to work with as well. The whole project went smoothly from start to finish. I am writing this review from my covered deck and I absolutely love it! It makes our backyard complete!

— Amanda Hernandez

Tony and his crew built an amazing screened-in deck for our family. He was awesome to work with. He walked us through every step of the design process.  He has a great crew working with him. They were friendly and made sure the area was safe every day before leaving.  The deck is beautiful and exceeds every one of my expectations.  I highly recommend Decked Out Builders.

I want to thank Decked Out Builders LLC. for an excellent job on our deck. From start to finish they were professional, knowledgeable and on time, as a matter of fact they were early!!!!

I want to also thank Kristen for making this process run smooth with no problems.

— Shawn Cam

I’m proud to say that I was one of Tony’s first clients a few years ago when he started his company. This is long overdue. Tony came in and framed our entire basement. Not only did he do it exceptionally well but it was also done fast and efficiently. Getting to talk to him a bit he was at the time a union carpenter and now he owns his own company. What he does is simply amazing and I’m happy to see things are going to well for Decked Out Builders. To anyone looking to work with him, I cannot recommend him enough. Our basement turned out so well!

— Alex Kowalkoski

We have recently had Decked Out Builders extend our deck, replacing the old wooden structure with composite decking and railing. The crew was professional, the work was done neatly, Tony was very prompt in addressing minor items we identified during the final walk-through, and Kristen kept us informed of the progress during the entire process – from design through permitting and scheduling the work. Overall, we were very pleased with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend Decked Out Builders for your decking projects! Thank you!

— Jana B

Great company!!! Made my vision come to life and built me my dream bar for my man cave. Will be calling them again for some future remodeling!!! Care about all the details and what customer wants every step of the way. Thanks guys!!!

— Aaron B

Tony just finished up a covered patio for us. It is EXACTY what we wanted! We could not be happier with the work that he did. The communication from Kristen and Tony was superior to any other contractor we have worked with. They responded to all questions that we had almost immediately. Highly recommended!!!

— Laura W

Decked Out Builders just finished adding to an existing deck on a new home and did an awesome job. We had a quick turnaround time and even in this year of lumber shortages, Tony, Kristen and their crew came thru for us. We told Tony what we had in mind and he made it magically appear. Kristen did all the paperwork with the city and permits for us, which was a big plus.  We even added to the original project and added railings and a gate to the existing old deck and made it super sturdy for our two big dogs.

We will call them again for future construction needs……they do basements, too!

— Ingrid K

Choosing Decked Out Builders for our project was the best decision we made. Starting from the quote process all the way to project completion and obtaining the warranty paperwork, we couldn’t have asked for a better company. The communication and quality of work was above and beyond our expectations. Thanks to Tony listening to want we were looking for and offering his own suggestions, our project turned out better than we could have ever imaged. Tony is very knowledgeable and does top notch quality work! Kristen was amazing from start to finish. She kept us completely informed and was always quick to answer any of our questions. All in all a wonderful experience and we look forward to working with Decked Out Builders on future projects!

We made a great choice picking Decked Out Builders to design and build our deck. High marks for communication, punctuality, and quality of work.

— Jennifer I

Tony and team were great to work with. They all do great work and we couldn’t be happier with our screened in porch! The whole team is hardworking and they kept a tidy workspace during the project. We had a lot of questions during the build process and they always took the time to answer our questions. Kristen was amazing and kept us updated on everything from the first paperwork, updates during the build, and through final permit. We’d recommend Decked Out and are planning to use Tony again for future projects!

— Ryan Rusner

Decked Out Builders did a fantastic job building our deck. They were on time and worked very hard every day. When the job was finished they cleaned everything up and didn’t leave a mess behind like other contractors had in the past. The crew was polite and personable. They were patient with me when I needed to make some last minute changes to the plans (getting gravel installed last minute). There were no hidden charges and the final bill was exactly what they estimated. The deck looks phenomenal and exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Decked Out Builders to all of my family and friends.
