I had Rich come by and do an estimate on what I was looking for. I had a written estimate in hand and emailed him to send me a contract for work based on the contract. I received a contract with an apology and an increase of $5000. I actually was warned by another contractor that this happens with a price jump and or construction not delivered quite often.Very disappointed. I have both estimates in hand.

These guys are incredible! I got 5 estimates on my new screened room. Rich was the third estimator. He took the time to go through options with me, talk me out of some silly ideas, and offer suggestions. All the crews were thorough, polite, and did great work. This is absolutely the best thing I've done for my house and myself in years. Highly recommend this company! I can't say enough nice things about them.

Kurt was prompt, professional, and worked hand in hand with us to nail down the design of our new deck and covered porch. The workers were amazing, clean, and efficient, and they did an outstanding job on the entire project. We couldn't be happier. As a side note, I would definitely recommend the upgrade to cedar posts\railings, as well as the aluminum balusters. It looks tremendous!

Rich Thomas came out to the house, took measurements, and listened to our wish list. He came back with drawings and a schedule. His crew was efficient and very productive even during several 100+ degree days. The resulting deck was more than I expected. Three weeks after completion, I emailed Rich a picture of a rail cap that I was not happy with. He wrote back that he would send someone with a 16 foot rail to replace the two pieces used in the first attempt. The repair was handled without question to our complete satisfaction. I highly recommend ED+D.

Words cannot do justice to the amazing job that this company provided. The workers were professional and efficient. The attention to detail was unbelievable. I love my new deck and pergola

Kudos to Val, Rich and everyone on the ED&D team! They just finished building a very large multi-level deck for us (including pergolas, plus engineered to support an elevated hot tub), and they did an outstanding job. They used high-quality materials, and the workmanship is outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Was excited to work with Rich, based on the reviews on this site. I think overall the deck turned out ok, even though the wood still has marks on it from where the bands used to be (even after staining). Was really disappointed with the damage the installers did to the hardie plank, which I had installed just the year before. The initial attempt to fix it was extremely subpar, their second attempt was ok, although it was not returned to its original state (I had to do the painting of the new hardie they had to install to replace what they broke). There still were some damaged boards after they left.

We recently had Exterior Design + Decks revitalize our existing basic, standard deck with a maintenace free composite. We thouroughly enjoyed our experience with Exterior Design + Decks from start to finish and found their prices to be competitively priced.

I had the best contractor experience I have ever had with Exterior Design and Decks. They did an outstanding job replacing my old wood deck with a new deck with a tile surface. The construction quality was excellent, the price was good, and the crew was great. I would highly recommend this company.

Exterior Designs and Decks built a gorgeous 19x 14-foot screened- in porch and an elaborate shed that I designed. The price they quoted was very fair and the work was exceptional. I spoke with a number of contractors before I decided on Exterior Designs and Decks. I loved that they came with a portfolio of their work - they were professional every step of the way. Rich and Val did everything they promised (and more). I am on the board for our HOA and I've recommended them to all of our neighbors (and friends). You won't be disappointed.

Look no further for a great company for your deck project. The crew worked extremely hard and left the site very clean each day. I also had a few design snags along the way and Val was there time and time again to work out the details. They built my dream deck and is awesome.

We picked Rich and his crew from 4 contractors who bid on our deck. It turned out to be by far the best choice. Our deck was completed well within our timeframe, was reasonably priced, and turned out exactly as we wanted. I recommended Rich to a co-worker who was equally as pleased.

We had several quotes for new screened deck. Visited Rich's website and saw what we wanted. Immediately after meeting Rich, knew we wanted to go with his company. Couldn't be more pleased with results. The workers that were here on-site couldn't have been nicer, always a smile and if we were to point something out to change, etc... would immediately address with a smile! Would highly recommend. We were referred to Rich by one of our neighbors whose deck they build. During our job, I believe he was able to secure at least 3 others in the neighborhood. VERY competitive and VERY professional.
