Rick and his staff were professional and very knowledgable. They assessed the problem with my deck and fixed it in a timely efficient manner. They showed up on time, cleaned the area where they worked and were very friendly. I would recommend Southern Decks all day long.

We needed deck and steps replaced and they did an excellent job. They made repairs to a gate that we had not even mentioned....also discovered some other structural issues and completed repairs after obtaining our approval. Most importantly they were willing to return to make sure we were %100 satisfied...and we were!!!

Southern Decks removed an old half-finished back porch and built a new enclosed porch. Rick had previously rebuilt a deck for us, so we knew the exceptional quality of his workmanship. He kept us informed every step of the process. No surprises. The worksite was always neat and clean. We are more than pleased with the result. We highly recommend Southern Decks.

Last year, we very much needed to replace a 34 year old deck of pressure treated pine. I solicited bids from four builders, but the two acceptable responses both turned out to have issues with the Better Business Bureau. This year, from an initial list of six potential bidders, we checked with the BBB first for a favorable rating, and issued RFPs to four of them. From the responses, we were most favorably impressed by one from Southern Decks Inc. The owner, Rick Harris, was generous with his time discussing details, answering questions, and pointing out several options - all before we signed the contract. A strong plus was that Rick and his partner Trent Sicola, do all the work themselves. They showed up bright and early a day or so after we signed the contract, and it was immediately obvious that these guys were organized, knowledgeable about current building codes, and worked very fast. The old, decaying deck (14' x 12', plus a 4' x 20' walkway) was completely disassembled by the end of day one. The new, larger deck (20' x 12', plus a 4'x14' walkway) was essentially completed by the end of day six. I took pictures at the end of each day's work, and what they accomplished each day seemed amazing. The final result easily met, and in some aspects exceeded, our expectations. In short, we were completely satisfied with the job done by Southern Decks, and would strongly recommend them to anyone considering a similar project.

I have a cedar deck that apparently had not been well maintained before I purchased my home in December of '06. I recently noticed some boards beginning to rot, and all of the railing needed to be completely replaced, daunting, as this is a very large deck. Well I needed not worry, as Rick came out quickly after our initial contact, took a look, said some intelligent, knowledgeable sort of things that one might expect from a seasoned deck professional and provided me a reasonable quote. I took a week or so to get another quote, and his was about 30% less and I felt more comfortable w/ him than the competition as they were general contractors and obviously Southern Decks specialize in decks. After I made my decision and called SD, they scheduled me for the following week and completed the job in the 2 days they had planned. It turned out very nice, and they did a thorough job cleaning up, which is always appreciated. Rick advised me on the staining process as well, as I am new to deck maintenance. I will contact them for any future repairs, and would be comfortable in recommending them.

Southern Decks designed and built a beautiful deck for our home several months ago. We live on a small lake, and people on their boats always ride by and compliment the new deck. We did a lot of remodeling work on our house and Southern Decks was the company whose work we have been most pleased with. Not only do they do quality work, Rick and Trent are kind, trustworthy guys. I highly recommend Southern Decks.

I register with Kudzu specifically to leave feedback on Southern Decks. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and workmanship of Rick and Trent. If you want your deck to be constructed properly and quickly, you must hire these guys. They built my 16' by 31' Veranda composite deck with aluminum balusters in about a week with little mess and exceptional pricing. I would not hesitiate to hire them again and I told Rick that he can use me as a reference anytime.

Let me first say, these guys are the absolute best! Rick and Trent are super honest and really know how to please a customer. Their level of professionalism far exceeds any I've found these days. We had a slightly challenging design idea and they were able to meet and surpass our expectations even given obstacles such as grade of the land and working around a landscape company's schedule. All of our neighbors have come by and love our new deck. We wish we had more for them to build here but we are referring everyone we know and we'll surely use them again on our next home.

Want to save time and aggravation? Hire Rick & Trent. What would take Joe Homeowner 4 weekends and a great deal of anxiety these guys can do in 1 day. Their work is level, plumb, square and seriously stout. They were very professional and very punctual. Qualities sadly lacking in the industry.

Our deck was built 11 years ago and is still outstanding. Southern suggested a redesign to our builder and it worked great. They also built a screened in porach. You can really count on them for the best job.

These guys build fantastic decks. I have used them for over six years and have NEVER had a problem with one of the decks they have built. Whether in Pressure Treated or Cedar, they know their business. They can do simple decks to elaborate covered porches, framing punch-out and other misc. carpentry items.
