My existing deck provided a nice setting to enjoy the birds and trees, but I had no access to the back yard. Foy Specialty Design was asked to provide terraced decks to get me to the ground level. Mike created a design that resulted in two new decks and stairs from the original deck. The result was minimal changes to the existing deck and more funtionality than I anticipated. His work is very detailed and it is well built. He takes no shortcuts, plus he's reliable and dependable. The cost was very reasonable, especially when I compared it what I paid for the original deck. I'm already making plans for some other work that I want done. The next will be in my master bath. I highly recommend Foy Specialty Design!

We needed to replace an existing deck in Alpharetta and Mike far exceeded expectations. Solid craftsmanship and attention to detail and you won't find a better price. Believe me, I looked. Best of all, Mike's a great guy who genuinely cares about his customers and his work.

We expanded our deck on either side, to each end of our house. This was a large project and I was very particular about the requirements and how the expansion would integrate with the existing deck. I am extremely pleased with the quality and attention to detail given by Mike Foy and his crew. On build quality alone, I give Foy Specialty Designs my highest recommendation. Better still is Mike's attention to design details and overall aesthetics. Our new deck is beautiful!

I've never gone through the trouble to write a review before, but Mike Foy deserves all of the praise I can provide. I've worked with a lot of contractors and handymen in the past and always had issues with dependability, accountability and honesty. They either didn't show up on-time or at all, or sent subs who didn't speak english, or weren't accountable for mistakes they made. I found Mike through a friend, and he has been fantastic to work with. He shows up when he says he will and is meticulous in his work. He cleans up at the end of the day and provides honest estimates. He may not be the cheapest, but I know that there will be no surprises at the end of a project. While I love my husband to death, he couldn't pick out a hammer in a line up. With a 50+ year old home that we are constantly updating, we have a lot of projects that we need help with. Mike has done everything from changing out fixtures, to tiling, to building a fantastic deck in our backyard. I highly recommend him, if you can catch him between projects at my house! LOL
