Integrity and Service!, 6/15/2010

We had a whole back yard project completed by ADS and we were so impressed by the design, execution, and skill at which these guys work. They were on time, professional and clean!!!!! (Important) We... would use them again, and absolutely refer them to a friend.

Great attention to detail, 9/07/2008

I have Alternative Decking Systems do a deck and lighting project. It turned out great and on budget. The head of the firm was present at the project and conveyed that personal touch that is to me... very important for building a relationship while doing a big project like a deck and lighting. I would recommend working with Alternative Decking Systems

Excellent job installing cable rail

Chris and his crew led by Lee did an outstanding job. They came out to check the cable rail materials which we had ordered directly from Feeney. When the deck was ready the installation of the cable rail was done efficiently and with excellent workmanship. We had purchased Trex composite decking to use for the handrail. The materials received from Feeney did not include spacers for the pickets. Lee did a beautiful job of fashioning spacers from the Trex material and also of making and attaching Trex pieces that he cut to finish the ends of the hand rail.

Skilled Contractor

Our company, Coating Pros, works with Alternative Decking on projects in the San Diego area. The scope of work is usually unique and challenging rehab projects including decking, waterproofing, railings, etc. Chris and his crew are always a pleasure to work with and provide a safe and professional working environment. The projects are always on schedule and exceed clients expectations.

The Best of the Best

Two years ago Alternative Decking Systems remodeled our back yard, including a large waterproof mahogany patio cover, an outdoor kitchen, an 800 sq ft flagstone deck, and extensive paving and masonry. The work was done on schedule and within budget--no surprises. Their work crew stayed on the job from beginning to end, and they were very neat. The mess was far smaller than what we experienced with an indoor kitchen remodeling. Everything has functioned well--no problems or followups.

Knowledgeable, Responsive and Good Work

They installed an aluminum railing around my new deck for less than half what my general contractor bid. They showed up when they said they would, anticipated problems before they occurred and worked quickly to get it done. I am using them again for other work.

Incredible Custom Work At Reasonable Prices.

We couldn't be happier with our experience with Alternative Decking. Our new custom deck has transformed our backyard into a relaxing oasis at a very reasonable price. We found Chris and his crew to be professional, courteous, reliable, and fast! These guys are second to none and I highly recommend them. Thank you so much from the Carrillo family in Kensington.

Professional and a Great Service

ADS not only knew all about the different products available, but the pros and cons of each for our particular application. Professionalism from start to finish, from bidding to completion, with the added confidence of having been in the business and having such a great portfolio is what sold us. High recommendations from us.
