We had an awesome experience! Our entire backyard was renovated to include a pool, new landscaping, removal of old deck and building of new one with dry ceiling for patio use underneath. John Lea... and his crew were a bright spot in a our long and tedious renovation! The crew was respectful, clean, and hard working! We had to change the location of the steps from the old design and he came in with a new design, thinking of everything from how much room we would have at the bottom of the stairs until the pool started, to windows being blocked, etc... John even got married and was gone for 9 days during our project, but he arranged ahead of time for Shane to take care of us. Shane was as easy and on top of things as John! The deck is beautiful and changes the aesthetics of our entire backyard! Makes us want to fire up the grill on the top of the deck and relax under the fans beneath the deck! I wish all companies were as easy to work with! Plan on using them again for Bahama shutters around the pool in the near future!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Beyond thrilled with our new deck! John Lea & his team were top notch! We now have a new living space outside which we LOVE. John and his team listened to our needs and not only met them but exceeded... our expectations. The project was done on schedule and was effortless on our end. John's team was incredibly organized and the work space was always clean and in order. There is no question who I would recommend to build your next deck! Decksouth definitely lived up to its stellar reputation! Thanks John & team!!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
After quotes from different companies, we chose DeckSouth not only for the reasonable price for our Screened Porch project, but also for their excellent references and ideas that expanded what was possible for us to build, within our budget. What resulted was not just a screened porch – but a glorious Outdoor Room! It has become a true extension of our interior home. The skill and craftsmanship of Abel and his crew is unparalleled. Roberto and his painting team did an exquisite job with the Cabot Deck stain and in refreshing the painted exterior areas of our home. Communication with the Project Manager Mike Reasons was professional, timely and consistent. The DeckSouth crew on our project was on always on time, polite, answered questions thoroughly and neatly cleaned up the workspace each night. We continue to get rave reviews of DeckSouth’s work from neighbors and passers-by. We kidded with the crew that we were going to move outdoors and live on our new Screened Porch Deck full time because they had created a fabulous, large “Treehouse Oasis” for us. As we sit in it and enjoy the outdoors, we marvel at the talent of these men, and the care they took in completing our vision. We’re deeply grateful to Mike Reasons, Abel, Roberto and the whole crew. We look forward to working with DeckSouth on future home projects. They have truly increased the value of our home!
Decksouth made it so easy to design and build our deck. They were professional, pleasant to work with and responsive to concerns. Stewart Clark, our representative, was knowledgeable and even fixed a water problem connected to the deck that we had been trying to find a solution for over 20 years. I highly recommend them.
Our Decksouth project started with a complete tear down of our original deck. With John’s help, we were able to design a customized deck that we will enjoy for years to come. From the initial meeting to the final clean-up, Decksouth handled all areas of the project professionally with attention to detail, incredible craftsmanship and a courteous crew. We would highly recommend Decksouth to anyone interested in the highest quality workmanship.
Just completed a significant deck and porch project with DeckSouth and we're absolutely satisfied with the excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. John and crew attended to every detail with very postive attitudes and even suggested ways to improve the outcome at no cost. All that and they had the best price and stayed within budget (except for our upgrades!) We will definitely recommend them to others looking for high quality work.
Your probably tired of reading all the great reviews DeckSouth has gotten...and this one is no different. Great service, quality, value and crew that was fantastic. Special thanks to John, Miguel and Alex for doing such a good job and making my deck and porch the envy of the neighborhood.
These guys did an absolutely amazing job on our deck and went above and beyond our expectations. The sales representative was extremely knowledgeable and also stayed in contact and managed the entire process. The crew and crew leader were exceptional. They showed a tremendous work ethic and really went out of their way to produce an excellent product. You can tell that these guys really take pride in their work and I feel really lucky that we found them. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone and I hope they use our before and after pictures (our old deck was completely redone) as an example! Thanks Decksouth!
I was excited to have Decksouth out to my house. At first, I was concerned that my project was going to be too basic; however, they came out and designed a wonderful ground level wood deck. The final project is multi-level and goes around a tree. I have had many compliments on my new deck. Overall, the experience was enjoyable. They did everything from obtaining my building permit to cleaning the job site every day. I highly recommend Decksouth.
Decksouth lived up to their reputation. From consultation, to design, to construction, everything was done promptly and professionally. The crew respected my property and worked diligently. The end result is a living space we can enjoy and show-off to our neighbors. While the price was not the cheapest, I can justify every dollar spent with them. If you are going to do a project, save yourself some time, call Decksouth!
Replaced old deck and added a screen porch and patio. Great experience with the upfront planning and communication with the project manger was excellent. He was there contstantly making sure the message was realyed to his crew. All in all very, very good.
We replaced our poorly-built builder's deck with a Decksouth deck, slate patio, and 4-season room. John's vision, craftmanship, and drive to "be the best," is unparalleled and the finished project has been one that we enjoy even more than we expected. If only he built houses, too...!
We're happy with the finished product but the crew wasn't professional. It wasn't just one thing, but numerous items that led to our overall frustration. The company was receptive to the feedback and in the end made sure things were completed to our satisfaction.
Deck South came out and worked with me on my issues.
After receiving estimates from 3 decking companies my wife and I chose Decksouth the replace an exisitng deck on the back of our home. From start to finish John and his team did a thorough and quality job. The attention to detail (e.g. routed edges on the handrails, sanded edges on the decking boards, etc.)exceeded my expectations. In addition to looking nice, the deck appears and feels much sturdier than the one it replaced. Overall, I highly recommend Decksouth.
DeckSouth has recently completed a second project for us. We live on a lake with a severely sloped lot. The first project in 2005 was a walkway from the driveway to the house. The recent project was very extensive. DeckSouth installed about 2,000 sq ft decking on 2 levels using composite decking material. They also installed a hot tub flush with the lower deck. For both projects, they performed the work professionally and quickly, at a fair price. We would recommend them all your decking needs.
Decksouth built a deck for us this summer and did an amazing job. I can't tell you how many people have come to our house and commented that it was the nicest deck they have ever seen. In fact, we had it stained about a month ago and the painter (who has stained hundreds of decks in and around Atlanta) used these exact words, "this is the best deck I have ever seen." Interestingly, we really did not do anything too fancy in terms of design; our deck is a standard rectangle to fit our bungalow style house. However, I believe the comments are motivated by stellar craftsmanship, attention to detail, and quality materials. I have always been fascinated by the factors that make a company great rather than just good. I am increasingly convinced that the great ones are driven by something more than simply making a profit. It is for this reason I can recommend Decksouth so highly. Through my interactions with Decksouth and after seeing the final product, I firmly believe that they are driven first by building incredible decks. Thus, they are smart enough to know that when driven by such a paradigm success will undoubtedly follow. So, if you are considering a new deck, I would HIGHLY recommend Decksouth.
Decksouth was great, I thought they were very good about clean up at the end of the day. They built a 20 by 15 foot deck on the back of my home. I love it, all ceder decking it looks great.
