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!
The whole process went smoothly and quickly from beginning to end. Phone calls get returned, pricing was competitive and we had a swarm of installers who knocked out the job in no time at all. The attention to detail in workmanship and carpentry sets Decksouth apart. We continue to get compliments from our neighbors and I would definitely use Decksouth for any future deckwork we may need.
Decksouth met all the expectations of both my wife and myself. The process from initial quote to final completion was done in a very professional and prompt manner. The project manager was responsive to our needs and upfront about change order amounts. He made sure that his crews were aware of our requirements and made sure that they were done to our specifications. The work crews were experienced, thorough, prompt, polite and cleaned up the work area after each day. The quality of the work is something that I am personally proud to show my neighbors and friends. The attention to detail was apparent. I would use them again and have already recommended their services to others.
We had a 28 year old treated pine deck that needed replacing. We priced from replacing the deckboards with treated pine to replacing the entire deck with treated pine, cedar, artificial wood, or Ipe, and sought advice from everyone we knew, and read all we could online. The Decksouth salesperson was the most professional of all the vendors we met, and without showing any bias pointed out the plusses and minuses of each of the choices, giving us a good general idea of the relative costs. His advice was very much in line with what we had read and heard We visited Decksouth's outdoor display of mini-decks left to the elements, and decided on the more expensive, but beautiful and durable Ipe (sometimes called "Ironwood") from Brazil. Decksouth worked beautifully with our Homeowner's Association and Installation was arranged. The workmen were uniformly polite, clean, and superb craftsmen. It was a pleasure to see how meticulous they were in lining up the deckboards perfectly uniformly. All was done on time and on budget, and some adjacent dry rot they discovered was pointed out and replaced for a nominal fee. The stain was applied after a few weeks, and we are now enjoying a gorgeous deck that substantially enhances the house. We're happy to recommend Decksouth.
We have worked with many contractor's in Atlanta and have to say that this particular company and group was "top of line". We replaced our old deck and called on DeckSouth by recommendation. This project, from start to finish, was the smoothest process we have experienced. We have renamed DeckSouth to "Master Deck Craftsman". If you want to work with a company that stands by their word and commitment - call DeckSouth!
If anyone out there is looking to have true craftsmen build them a deck, Decksouth is should be someone you seriously consider. These guys are true craftsman who communicate clearly, work clean and bust a55. They truly did an awesome job.
As a contractor in Atlanta, I rely heavily on my companies to perform when asked. DeckSouth has come through for me everytime. It's nice to have a company that will take care of my customers the same way that I do. I know that when I call them, the job will be completed as promised.
We highly recommend Decksouth for your outdoor construction needs. They were very professional, punctual, hardworking, and competetive in pricing. They finished the job on time and left no mess. Our deck was old and in need of repair, and now it looks beautiful.
Decksouth offers professional service from the Project Manager to the Installation Workteam. They showed up when scheduled, did the work as detailed, and cleaned up daily. Our deck was built to last for many years. Decksouth's staff was available to answer all our questions and finished the project on schedule without sacrificing quality and workmanship. It was as if they were building a deck in their own backyard. I would reccomend Decksouth to anyone. We could not be more satisfied.
We needed to replace two pine decks less than three years old due to splinters and splitting. Bobby and crew worked their magic with Ipea hardwoods and gave us 2 AWESOME decks to enjoy this spring/summer. Decksouth has the attention to detail you'd expect to see from the most detail oriented customer. They made this $40K+ project a painless joy. Do yourself a favor and call DeckSouth!!

This company was great to work with through the entire process. Salesman listened to needs and ideas, and fashioned a quote that captured all requirements. Arrived to start the job when they said they would. The crew working the job, lead by Jose, was exceptional. They could not offer the warranty they do if they built a shoddy product. The deck they built is very solid, should easily last 25 years, and the workmanship shows attention to detail. I had quotes for same job that were higher and lower, but after seeing finished product I know I made the right choice with DeckSouth, who delivered excellent value.
Don't hesitate to hire DeckSouth. We were extremely pleased with their quality. They are a company that stands behind their word. They do exactly what they say they'll do, when they say they will do it! They are also very easy to work with. Our deck is well constructed and beautiful, down to every fine detail! We HIGHLY recommend DeckSouth.
This company does great design and is great at execution. They show up when they schedule themselves. Any disruption during construction is minimal. They leave the job clean of all scrap material. They have receintly opened a new division that cleans decks. I have had the opportunity to use this service and again I have been very pleased. I have had extensive experience with subcontractors and these guys are tops in my book.
Decksouth does great work, has original ideas and the service is good.
On a cold January day, Decksouth's crew stood on our old deck and had a vision of a screened room to allow outside living almost all year. The finished product was amazing. The way the new room is tied into the existing roof made a seamless transition and has gotten lots of attention from neighbors and friends. Anyone with a hammer can put up a deck, but only real craftsmen can create an addition equal in quality to one's existing home. I would recommend John Lea's product and crews to anyone.
This is the second home that we have had DeckSouth come out and build us a custom design. Both times we asked DeckSouth to create a design around a hot tub. They were very creative and conscious of all our requests. Every touch point in the company, from the designer to the crew, showed nothing but the upmost in professionalism. They were courteous, on-time and delivered on all their promises. The one thing that stood out with DeckSouth from all the other contracts that quoted our project was their time they took upfront to make sure we were getting the best finished product to fit our request. Ironically, they also came in with the best price also.
