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 »
The overall finish product was exceptional. Very impressed with the crew and I would highly recommend them. They work with me on the design and look that I wanted to achieve.
In the past 5 years we have been doing extensive remodeling and have been abused by most contractors. We have been cheated, gouged, and lied to more times than I can count. And on top of it all, have received poor quality of work. But this was not the case with Decksouth. I wish we had found them earlier in our endeavors. We got quality work and done in a timely manner. The people were very conscientious about their work and did a great job. No money exchanged hands til the job was done to our satisfaction. Alex and Stewart are wonderful and recommend you ask for them by name.
We replaced an old deck with an ipe deck with Decksouth and were very pleased with the process and the results. The folks from Decksouth gave us great suggestions in design. The build process was handled VERY professionally with a great team, as little intrusion as possible, and as good a 'clean up' as you could hope for. You can find less expensive solutions, but I truly believe you get what you pay for with deck work. Decksouth was worth it.
I had been down this road before and this time was to settle for only the best. I reveiwed and met with the top 3 deck builders in the Atlanta metro area and from the start I knew I had a winner in DeckSouth. This project was "going to exceed my expectations" or they would not leave until it did, said John Lea, President and Owner. Well, I am very happily here to tell you that is exactly how it unfolded. This was a HUGE project from footings to ceiling, the planning, the project management, the craftsmanship and the follow-up...absolutely exceeded my expectations. Thanks to the DeckSouth Team!
The estimater Craig showed up on time as promised. Craig promptly got me an estimate. Once I gave him the ok the crew took great care around my shrubs erecting the deck....great craftsmen, and left the site clean. I will use these guys again!
I contacted DeckSouth to have my existing deck washed, stained and sealed. Paul Dinos and his crew were extremely professional and did a fabulous job. I will definitely use them for any future deck maintenance needs.
We are pleased with the quality of our new deck we had built by Decksouth, Inc. They were very professional and addressed all of our concerns. They used quality materials and did not attempt to cut corners. The work was done for the quoted price and they did not find "extras" along the way. Thank you DeckSouth!
The people, services and work was outstanding. Bobby Smith was very cooperative and easy to work with. He met my every expectation thruoghout the planning and execution stages. We couldn't be happier. When we requested some additional work, the site supervisor and project manager reacted quickly met our needs. It was a great experience to work with the Decksouth people. I would highly recommend them for any deck project.
After meeting with four deck building companies, my wife and I selected Decksouth to build a very large deck on our home. They came up with a plan that matched our vision, made suggestions to save cost and provided references. Jose and his team are all accomplished craftsmen that take great pride in their work. They were courteous and left the yard neat every day. Decksouth took care of getting the necessary permitting requirements and provided a structural engineer to inspect their work at various stages during the building process. Their crew management met with us several times during the building process to make suggestions and made sure we were kept well informed on how the final product was going to look upon completion. They delivered the promised work on time and on budget. I can truly say we are a completely satisfied customer and can recommend this company without hesitation.
We used DeckSouth for a deck "rehab": removed all the decking and railings, but left the original frame intact, and replaced with Ipe Ironwood. DeckSouth's price was inline with other contractors who wanted to put in Trex or Weatherbest. Alex and his crew were very professional; the word "no" was never spoken, and they cleaned up every day. Malcomb, our project manager, was always ready to answer questions and was very thorough in checking on the work being done. It was a very painless process, and I've done a lot of remodeling over the years. By far the best contractor I've ever worked with. They did what they said they would do, when they said, and stuck to the contract. Didn't try to come up with additional charges, and didn't rush the job. They took the time to do it right, and stayed on the job until it was finished. John, the president of the company, is very easy to work with and very honest. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a new deck. They don't do deck repairs, and they do "rehab" jobs like mine on a case-by-case basis.
had a large multilevel deck built that was done with the highest degree of professionalism and on time. The outcome is an awesome "work of art" that is a focal point for my home. Thanks to Deck South.
I have been very pleased with DeckSouth through all the stages of my project. Anytime I called or e-mailed, I received a reply within a day. My primary contact was very knowledgeable. He provided suggestions and recommendations without any sales pressure. I think their prices are fair and they have a variety of natural and composite materials. The old deck on my home was in poor repair and had been built before many codes existed. The folks at DeckSouth tore down my old deck, repaired damage to the side of my house, and built a new 2-story deck with stairs in a week. The work crew was very industrious, courteous, and prompt each day. All the permits and inspections went smoothly. The new deck looks fabulous. I have already recommended DeckSouth to several of my friends and co-workers. It was truly a pleasure to work with the people at this company.
Thanks to the management for a job well done. It seems harder and harder these days to find a construction crew that is as keenly focused as you guys in building a very high quality product (our two story deck) at a fair price and have done it on time as promised, and on budget. The crew was excellent. Jose and his group were professional, hard workers, who were tidy and pleasant to have on our property. We appreciate the oversight you and Shane provided for our project. It was a pleasure dealing with you John & we wish you the very best. Our new deck is absolutely beautiful and Julie and I look forward to enjoying it for many years to come. Thank you!
Decksouth was wonderful to work with from start to finish. They provided us with a variety of designs and helped us pick the one that made the most sense for us. Once we finalized the design, the crew worked consistently until the job was done. The quality and professionalism of Decksouth was the best I have ever seen. I would highly recommend them.
My husband and I decided to go with DeckSouth for the building of our new deck. We interviewed 3 companies and DeckSouth was in the middle with their pricing. Once they started the job they came every day until its completion. Every few days the supervisor/engineer came out to see how our deck was progressing. The crew who did the work was friendly and helpful in answering our questions. The construction of the deck was just the way we wanted it to be. We love the deck! I have already recommended this company to my friends who are considering rebuilding/repairing their deck.
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.
