HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“They were fantastic. I can't say enough good. They're absolutely fantastic. They put a deck on my house. I'd give them an A+—again, excellent. I would definitely recommend them.”

“They did everything when they said they would do it. They were there on time. They got there early. They got the job finished in four days, very professional, and it looks good. They get an A+++. I would most definitely recommend them.”

“They were great to work with; I like the way they took the project from start to finish. And they actually ended up starting the project earlier than we thought they were going to, and it was done earlier, so it was a bonus for us. Everything was handled very professionally and methodically. They communicated the whole way through; I got emails and updates every day what they did on the project and what they had left to do. It was very professional; I was pleased. I would grade them an A+. I have no fault; they did a great job. I would absolutely not hesitate recommending them.”

“The carpenter that was on the job was phenomenal. The finished product was as good or exceeded our expectation, and we're very pleased. I would give them an A+.”

“Excellent. I just thought they were very clean, organized, and efficient and fast. They got the work done. It was good. I'd give them an A+.”

“It was great. We had a very good experience with them. We would definitely recommend them and use them again. I would give the overall experience an A.”

“They're very quick. They kept the site clean. The design looks wonderful. So, everything's really good. They tore down an old deck, and they built a half deck and a half patio in its place. I'd give them an A.”

“They did excellent work. I would recommend them.”

“They did excellent work for me. I had no complaints, and I'd recommend them. They were good.”

“I think they were just friendly. They seemed knowledgeable. I liked the fact that I got an email everyday about the status of what was going on with it. I'd give them an A+. I actually have recommended them.”

“I thought those who did the labor were very good, very sincere about how well it looked and how well it was done. They had a lot of pride in their work, and it shows in the finished result. I'd say they're an A+. I'd recommend them again.”

“I really liked that the salesperson and the store manager helped me and my husband, kind of educated us on the decks, and explained everything. They were very clear and detailed; I really liked that. I'd give them an A+.”

“They just followed through with everything they said they would, they did exactly what they said they would, when I first met with them. Good communication. The quality of work was good. The workers were neat and professional, on time. I can't say anything negative. I would grade them an A+.”

“They're very professional. I would give them an A.”

“There were just a few minor glitches with them. They seem to be very fast, on time, and in and out—that's it. I'd give them an A.”

“They built my deck. They're very professional. They're very organized. The project ended up meeting all specs, so I was very pleased that way. I would give it an A. They had to break up some cement, and they kind of left some chunks of it in the yard. I already have recommended them.”

“I guess the main thing is that they explained the whole process, what was going on; generally, kept me pretty well informed. They did a deck replacement. I'd give them an A.”

“I think they finished the project quickly, on time, and as promised. Very clean in the work that they did. Overall, very happy. As far as feedback goes—the other thing that I would recommend is that—I mean, they write in the contract that where they do the work, there might be some spots where the grass dies and so forth, just because of the concrete and so forth. But, even though that was written and understood, I just hope that in the future with other clients, they rescind that, because it doesn't look like a complete job at that point. While I already knew that, going into it, that would be the only negative feedback I would give. They did say that they would do everything, but I think they can take it a step further, to kind of make it look like a clean job, ultimately. I'd give them an A.”

“Very good communication, and they did a really good job. They had a very good crew. They were building a new deck. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very good to work with, planning and design of the project. They were very prompt and organized in the way they made sure the materials and the workers were on site in a timely manner. Their craftsmanship was good. I'd give an A.”

“I had such a wonderful experience with them. They're the most professional company I've worked with in a long time. They really were amazing from beginning to end. I have recommended them to so many people. I'd give them an A+. Everyone I dealt with was wonderful. I loved the quality of their work. I would rave about them.”

“They had built our deck. It was existing. I would give them an A rating.”

“I had an excellent experience with Archadeck. They showed up when they said they were going to show up, they did what they said they were going to do, they did it when they said they were going to do it, and they did it on budget. They did a great job. They were tearing down an old, rotten deck and building a larger one in its place. They deserve an A+.”

“The people from Archadeck were very efficient, and they were on time. The manager was there to oversee the work, and they did a really great job. It was quick. They built a huge deck on the back of our house. My husband's best friend recommended them to me. I would give them an A.”

“I thought the workmanship was excellent. I was pleased with the crew, the workers, and the workmanship. They built an elevated deck, and I would rate the job with an A.”

“They designed a patio for us that met our needs and was within our budget. They came up with a couple of ideas that I hadn't thought about that were still within our budget. The men who came and did the work were very nice, neat, and clean. I was just very happy all the way around. When we checked Archadeck out, we were happy with what we found. They're an A+ company.”

“I liked that the technicians were very professional. The person who took care of the construction of the deck was very skilled and easy to work with. They made sure everything was to our satisfaction before the job was completed. I'd give them an A+.”

“The people from Archadeck were fast, and they were very accurate on materials, pricing, and time. They handled everything, from the permit and ordering the materials to cleaning everything up for us. We literally didn't have to do anything except schedule it and pick out designs and colors—Archadeck did the rest. They were rebuilding a deck. They're an A+ in my book.”

“They were very professional and did quality work. They built a deck and a pergola. I chose them for their knowledge and expertise in doing decks. They get an A+ grade from me.”

“I would give Archadeck an A rating; I was very satisfied.”

“They were punctual, professional, kind, and explanatory, and they did quality work. They were very good. They built a deck on our home. I think we found out about them because we got a referral from somebody. They did A-rate work.”

“I liked their professionalism, their thoroughness, and the quality work. They built a deck, and I would give them an A on it.”

“They helped with expectations, and they kept us updated on the progress. They had a customer service orientation about what we needed and what we wanted. They created a design for our backyard space, demolished our old deck, and created a new deck and patio space. I call that A-grade service.”

“Archadeck was great in the planning stage and had great communication. It was high-quality work. They demolished a couple of decks and built a two-level screened-in porch. I would give them an A.”

“They built a deck off the back of my house. Their customer service has been good. I would sum them up with an A-.”

“I liked that Archadeck worked through the winter. They were doing deck work, and their customer service was fine.”

“They were wonderful. They built me a backyard deck. The customer service was great, and the workmanship was beautiful. I've got no complaints. I would recommend Archadeck to anybody. They get an A+ from me.”

“They put in a screened-in porch and a paver patio. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. They had great follow-up and answered every question. Our contact person was constantly in touch with us. I'm very happy with the porch. It looks fabulous. I had a great experience. They're A+.”

“Archadeck redid a big deck with a gazebo, and they did a very good job. They had a great work ethic and did a fantastic job. We're very happy with the deck. I would give them an A.”

“They were very proficient. They did a TimberTech deck, and everything came out exactly as planned—beautiful, A+ work.”

“They did two decks; they added onto one and refurbished another. They were on time, extremely communicative, and responsive if we had questions. They wanted to finish the job in the best amount of time possible. I would give them an A.”

“Mostly, it was a paver patio, but there was a small deck that was a part of it as well. It was a really easy process. I think everything they weighed out from the beginning was exactly what they delivered us. The time line was a big part of it, and I think their communication was probably the best. They were big on communicating their progress, expectations, and things. They're an A+ company.”

“Archadeck of Chicagoland built an entire new deck that is 15 by 20 feet. I liked everything. They earned an A+ grade.”

“They did a paver patio. Their service when they actually came to do the deck and everything was done very well. They were very good at keeping us up to date with the progress of the project. I'd give them an A rating.”

“We used Archadeck for our deck and pergola. The lead carpenter was superb, and their communication skills were excellent—superior to any other home improvement contractor we've ever worked with. They were really good. I'd give them an A—no doubt about it.”

“Their contractors were always on time and did a fantastic job. We had a deck and patio put in, and I was very happy with the entire job. Their creativity was really good. I'd definitely give them an A. It worked out really well.”

“Archadeck was a great company to work with. They were very professional, and they knew their stuff. When they completed the work, I did not have to clean up anything behind them, and they finished on time. I was happy with their professionalism. I would give them an A.”

“The work was outstanding. All the people who we worked with were outstanding, from those who did the designs for us to those who did the actual labor and work. We had a deck, a patio, and a walkway that were taken out, and then the patio was replaced with a concrete block patio. And there was some dry rot on one of the wood pieces in the wall in the side of the house, and they fixed all that. I just thought that they did an outstanding job on everything. It's under about 12 inches of snow that has been here for the entire year, so it looks really white right now, but I'm sure that under the 12 inches of snow, it probably is outstanding. I would give them an A+.”

“They did a very good job. They were very professional, timely, and efficient. I enjoyed their emails when they would let me know what was coming up the next day. They completed a patio, and I was very satisfied. I found them through a referral—word of mouth—and I would highly recommend them. I would say they deserve an A.”

“They did a really good job. They were really responsive to questions and what we wanted done, and they did a beautiful patio. I think I found some different places and got some different quotes. The reason we chose Archadeck was because of the design that they did. I would say they get an A rating.”

“The overall quality of the work was excellent, and the workmanship of the builder was top-rate, so the output that Archadeck of Chicagoland provided was great. They built a new deck for me. We haven't had any issues with the deck yet, so I would recommend using them. They earned the A grade.”

“I liked the quality of materials and workmanship. The work was done roughly six to eight months ago. They built me a deck. It's covered with snow, but it's holding up pretty well. If a friend or neighbor asked me about Archadeck, I would give them their phone number and tell them to give them a call. I'd give this company an A+.”

“What stood out about Archadeck of Chicagoland was the professionalism of all the folks involved. They installed a patio and a fire pit. I would rate them an A+ because they were very good, and I'd recommend them to anyone who called.”

“They did a good job in general. I think the quality of their work was very good. This work was done this summer, and I haven't had any issues with that deck since. They put in a brick patio for my deck, and they deserve an A.”

“We were very pleased with Archadeck's work; I particularly liked that they came up with creative ideas to deal with issues that we had not foreseen. They did new installations of a deck and a patio for me in maybe late summer or early fall. I haven't had any issues with the work since it was done. I would give them the A grade.”

“Archadeck of Chicagoland met all the requirements. They got the pergola put up, and we're very happy with it. I haven't had any problems with it, so they earned an A.”

“I liked their follow-up—it was mainly to see if there were any issues—and their oversight when they came in and monitored the project to make sure that any issues that were not up to spec were definitely taken care of immediately. Basically, they did not wait until the end of the project before they kind of came in to see what was going on; they were there throughout the process, so that was kind of nice. They built my deck in spring or late summer last year. It's buried in about three feet of snow, so it's hard to really see. I didn't have any issues with the deck. It's been fine; it's been above standard. I'd definitely give them an A.”

“It appears that the workmanship was done well, and they were on top of the workers the whole time. They put a deck on the back of the house. An A is fine for their grade, but I have one caveat there—they did it very late in the season, so I have not been able to use my deck to fully enjoy it and check it out. That's the only thing; it was done late, and it got cold so early this year.”

“Everything went well. They built a gazebo and a new patio for us. We didn't get to enjoy it too much because it wasn't done until almost the end of the summer. We did use it quite a bit while we could, before it got too cold, and we enjoyed it very much. I'd say they get an A+. They took care of the issues we had; they took care of the problems. They were just excellent when I had a few issues. They were like a Johnny-on-the-spot—they came right out and took care of business.”

“I liked the communication, the response time, and the quality of work. They built a deck, and it looks fantastic. It was complicated, but I would have liked the start time to have been sooner. It's covered in snow, but if we ever thaw out here in Chicago, it'll look great. I would grade Archadeck of Chicagoland an A.”

“Archadeck is excellent. They were very personable, listened to what we needed and wanted, and developed a deck that we're very happy with. I have nothing but good things to say about them. They did a really great job—A+. We're extremely pleased.”

“Archadeck did good work. The patio's absolutely glorious, and the deck looks very handsome. I haven't had any issues with the work since it was done. Everything seems to be holding up very well. I would give them an A.”

“The whole process went really smoothly. They built a deck for me. The people were really friendly, worked really hard, and got it done really quickly. Everything went really well. They were A+.”

“They installed a pergola. The workman was highly qualified and knew what he was doing. I liked the quality of their work.”

“They did some work. They were very timely, they were very personable, and they cleaned up after each day. They came back when we had a few little, open items—a little punch list. They came back in a timely manner and took care of those things. Christian and Dave were great; they're the owners, I think, and they were out here several times throughout both the sales cycle and the post-construction to make sure everything was going according to plan. It was done very quickly with little or no hassle to us—very professional. We had them build a patio and a fire pit in July. It's been great. I think Christian and Dave were on top of everything, so for us, there was very little hassle or even involvement, because they just took care of their team so well. I guess that would make them super great, because they were on top of everything, and all I had to do was give Christian a call, and everything was taken care of. They deserve an A+.”

“We felt the owners that came out were very personable, very helpful, friendly, and easy to work with. There were some delays that needed to happen, because one of the workers broke his arm, or there was some kind of injury, and they let us know right away, so that was really nice. They didn't wait until the last minute to let us know about that, so that was helpful. For any issue that came up, they were timely and able to take care of it. For example, we wanted the same rocks on both sides, because we had a deck that was kind of two sided, so they put rocks under one side, and I asked if there was any way they could match the rocks, so that it was the same under the existing deck, and they accommodated that. We would definitely recommend them to other people. The workers were very, very nice. I wasn't around them as much as my husband was, but he thought they were very, very nice and seemed really knowledgeable. The cleanup was great. You wouldn't have known there was any mess; it was very great. I would give them an A.”

“Archadeck didn't do anything other than what contractors normally do; they did the job right and on time. They did it for the amount they said they would, and they did quality work. They built a patio. They finished the job for me in a reasonable amount of time. I recommend them to my neighbors. They're a good company. They should get an A+. They provided extra things.”

“We contracted to Archadeck to build a pergola for us over our back patio, and from initial design concepts through to execution and implementation of that design, they were very professional. They worked with us on any challenges we had, and they had the highest customer service levels we could have expected. I would freely recommend them to anybody doing a similar project or building a deck. They're an A.”

“Archadeck put up a pergola, and they were very interested in making sure the job was done correctly. They followed up with me after the project was done to make sure everything went very well. They most definitely communicated with me very well. I would definitely give them an A.”

“They're very well. They did a great job. The finished product is beautiful; I get lots of compliments on it. There was a little bit of discrepancy when they first started on the placement of where the decking was going to go. They were able to come out and figure it out and make it work, so it's good that they're flexible. They were very good. They made a pergola in July. Everything's held up great. I would recommend them. I would use them again. I would say they should get an A.”

“They did great-quality work, they were friendly, and they helped us with the design process. It just turned out really well. We got an existing deck torn down and a new deck built with a screen room attached. They came out, and we kind of told them what we wanted in the area, and they came back and showed us a computer model of how it would look on the house, the setup, and everything. The quote was exactly the same as what they told us in the beginning. They were very nice, very helpful, and very fast, and they seemed knowledgeable. The cleanup was great—not a problem at all. I would say they were an A.”

“Archadeck did some work for us. They completely redid my back deck and railings. Their service was excellent. They were great. They did a good cleanup. I was very satisfied with their work. I would give them an A+.”

“Overall, they seemed knowledgeable. They kept me updated with the whole process, cleaned up very nicely, and overall, did a nice job with the final product. They put a new deck in. I would use them again if I had a need for their services; that's the plan after this.”

“Archadeck's work was great. The carpenter I had was wonderful—better than great. They built a deck; I got a new deck. His name was Sonny, and he was very, very, very, very good. He went above and beyond. He was the carpenter. The quality of the work was great; it was really good. They were prompt with their services. The customer service, when I called in, was great—no problem. They got it done in a reasonable time. I would use them again—especially Sonny, the carpenter, because he was great. I'll just say they were an A. I think it was good. I had a positive experience with them.”

“They took our old deck away, and they built a three-season room, a sunroom, and a two-tiered deck with a hot tub. It was good, quality work. They were excellent. I was very pleased with them. I would give these people an A. We used them before, when we lived in North Carolina, and that's why we called them again, so we're second-time users of Archadeck. They have good ideas; they helped us to solidify our idea. Right from the very beginning, you have these ideas, and they help you to just put them all together. I suppose that's probably what I liked the best, but I knew they also did very good work, because they had done work for us before.”

“I thought Archadeck was great. I thought their service was good. Everything went well. They were very on top of things—no problems. They put in a screened-in porch. I feel very good about the quality of the work. The workers were great. Their customer service was very good. I would absolutely recommend this company to someone else. If needed, I would use them again in the future. They were an A. They were great.”

“Archadeck extended our deck. The job turned out great. I felt the technicians were good. They were friendly to me. I didn't have any communication problems with the crew at all. Customer service was great. They cleaned up. They were rated very highly. I would say they were an A.”

“Archadeck did some work for us over the last year or two. They were very creative with the design of the deck that they did. They were very punctual and finished on time. We made a couple of changes on the fly, and they were very flexible adapting to that. They actually caught in their audit that they had overcharged us, and they sent us money back. I would definitely refer them to friends and associates. I think that it was a husband-and-wife team. I felt pretty confident that they were honest, and they were trying to meet our best interests—not trying to sell us something. They were just trying to meet our objectives. I would say they were definitely an A.”

“Archadeck did a patio for us. They were reliable and dependable, and they followed through on what they said they were going to do if there were any problems. There were a couple of things, and they did whatever it took to fix the problem, so we were very happy with their service. They started out with a quote, and they stuck to the quote. The workers were unobtrusive; they just did their job and left. The cleanup was fine. They did everything they said they would do.”

“Archadeck came out, and they built a deck for us. We love the design, we love the work, and we love the deck. They built a deck with a screened-in room underneath. I’ve referred them to other people already because they were excellent.”

“I had a very positive experience with Archadeck. The guys were creative. We had a real trouble spot in the backyard, and what they came up with was really creative. They built a pergola—a big pergola with eight posts. It’s huge. They were very organized, and they cleaned up well after their services. I’d say they were an A.”

“We had a great experience. They were friendly, and they worked really hard. They did a patio, a sitting area with stone, and then a couple of steps up to a platform with a pergola over it. I think they’re professional and organized. I would recommend Archadeck—A+.”

“It was a screened-in three-season room, and it was one of the best building experiences I had. He’s very easy to work with.”
