Paul Summers is very professional and caring about the work that he does. Paul spent a lot of time with my husband and I to help design our deck. Other contractors we meet with did not spend the quality time to get our input on what we wanted.

I had a deck completed late last season and was more than pleased with not only the final product, but the process as well. Originally when I had my deck project quoted out, I had three companies come by my house to quote out. Two of the companies were out of the phonebook; the other was a recommendation from a friend. Luckily for me, the recommended company was Decks By Design. When Paul came by the house he must have spent well over an hour with me and my wife. Not only was he taking measurements, he also gave us functionality ideas and general things we needed to think about before making a decision. By comparison the other two builders came by, took measurements, and left right away. When the proposals came back, Paul's was the best by $2,100. Construction went smoothly, and not only that, even more importantly him and his crew kept my backyard clean for my dog to roam during the evenings. During the process, we would get home from work and shown the progress of the day to our satisfaction. We were extremely impressed after completion, when Paul followed up with us twice. One time two weeks after, the other at the end of the season just into Fall to make sure we didn't have any popped boards or anything that needed repair. Suffice to say me and my wife enjoy our deck immensely and recommend Decks By Design to any friends looking to have a deck built.

Deck built 5/07. Notified owner of defects 3/08. Owner promised resolution by 5/08. Owner never heard from again after several various attempts in 08/09. Do not recommend to anyone.

Decks by Design attempted to resolve any issues that arose, but was unsuccessful. Nothing seemed to make the homeowner happy, unfortunately. Out of all the decks that were built over the years, this was the only complaint that was unresolved.
