Review by

“They met or exceeded my expectations in how quickly they finished the project. Once they got started, it was three days. I was surprised they could do it in three days.”

Review by
12/22/2017

“Absolutely positive. They were great. They did an excellent job. Everything was always cleaned up every evening, before they left. They were on time. And there was one thing that we had requested and they forgot, and they came back and did it in a matter of days. So, we had no problems at all. They replaced a deck that was falling apart, and then they also assisted us with some renovation in our bathroom. And with the deck, they even gave us a new design to consider which was much better than what we had. When the owner came to meet with us, he brought a computer with pictures of decks he had done and he brought sample materials. None of the other contractors that we contacted did that. And when we were working in the bathroom, we thought we wanted to do something, and it was sounding outrageously expensive when we talked to other contractors. And he told us, he said, 'This is what you're doing that's going to make it be that expensive.' Nobody explained that to us. So, we changed our minds and went in a different direction. I would definitely work with them again. I would grade the overall experience with an A+, even though they had a subcontractor who didn't do something correctly, and we ended up with a leak. They came right over while it was still raining. They looked at it, they said, 'Don't worry. We'll take care of everything.' And they did. They had people out here to fix the paint. They were going to repaint the whole room, and it didn't need it. They were right on it. They never said, 'This isn't our fault.' They always said, 'We will take care of this.' Recommendation—we live in a neighborhood and we have a Facebook page, and I always recommend them when someone says they're looking for someone to do that type of work.”

12/22/2017

“They did a great job. They did some work on my patio, and some reconstruction, stairs, and this and that. I liked that they were on time, on budget, and finished the job on schedule. Noteworthy was that the workers were friendly, cleaned up after themselves. Everything at the end of everyday was in order and nothing left—trash or anything like that, nothing was left around. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by
12/22/2017

“It was very good. They did a deck and a patio for me. I liked what they proposed, and the price out was what they did, and they did a good job doing it. Nothing noteworthy; they just did their work efficiently and effectively. I would grade the overall experience with an A+.”

Review by
12/22/2017

“They did some repair work on my deck. They were professional. They were very easy to communicate with. They had a good attention to detail. I'm overall very satisfied, and I would highly recommend them. I would give them an A.”

Review by
11/04/2017

“They replaced and built a new deck on the back of my house. I liked that they gave me a good estimate. They were on time. They did an excellent job, and I'm very happy with the work. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by
11/04/2017

“They installed a patio, a fire pit, and a retaining wall for us. It was positive because they were very responsive to questions and did an excellent job—very professional. Nothing noteworthy, but they all did an excellent job. I would grade the overall experience with an A+.”

Review by
11/04/2017

“They replaced the posts that hold the deck up. I liked that they answered the phone. They showed up when they said to give the estimate, and they showed up when they said to do the work. And they leave everything nice and neat, and they are all very polite. So, they are just easy to work with. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by
11/04/2017

“They did a patio for me. I liked that Mike was very professional; the job was done very well and quickly as scheduled, and he was very flexible to work with. Noteworthy was that they were very professional. They kept the site very clean. They didn't destroy too much of the lawn and took care of everything very well. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by
10/23/2017

“They put a deck on the back of our house. It was positive because they communicated well. They kept the work area clean, and they did an excellent job. Nothing noteworthy because I didn't have much direct experience with the workers, but the ones I talked to were great, and they did most of the work while we were gone. I would grade the overall experience with an A+.”

Review by
10/23/2017

“Fantastic. They're excellent. We had an old deck on the back of our house, and we had them take that down. And they designed something new according to exactly what we wanted, and they planned and worked with us to get what we wanted. They were fantastic. It was positive experience because we're trying to get deck people for two years, and we had a lot of trouble just getting people to call us back. One good thing was that when I called, someone actually answered the phone; they were very responsive. And the guy came out—we made an appointment—he came out pretty quickly, sat down with us. We told him what we wanted, we told him what we liked, and they drew something up for us. The communication was just awesome, and then the crew that came out—once the plans were made up—the crew that came out were very nice, courteous, professional, and did a good job; the end product is fantastic. I would grade the overall experience with an A+.”

Review by
10/23/2017

“They installed some stairs from my upstairs deck to my lower patio for me. It was a positive experience from beginning to end, from the time the owner came out and did the assessment of just exactly what the design should be—how it had to go in, and questions about what we wanted, as opposed to what could be done. They also helped us get the homeowners' association's approval underway and complete it. And the workers were prompt and efficient—very, very skilled craftspersons. The whole experience, from beginning to end, was a very positive one. I would grade the overall experience with an A. They were punctual; they were on time. They were clean, and they were deferential. It was a good experience. We already are recommending them.”

Review by
10/23/2017

“They've done more than a little bit of work for me. They've done a lot of great work for me. They did a lot of stuff. They've installed a paver patio and a paver sidewalk for me. I liked that they completed their work in a timely fashion and in a courteous manner. Very professional, very neat and clean; they exceeded my expectations. Every time they do work for me, I'm impressed with the work that's done. I would grade the overall experience with an A+. I have already recommended them.”

Review by
10/23/2017

“They did our front porch, and our back porch and patio. I liked that they were always on time. Any problem, they fixed it. They were pleasant. They made us feel we made the right choice in using them for our screened patio. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by
10/23/2017

“They put on a new deck, a patio, and an enclosed porch for me. It was positive because they were honest and on time. The workers were all friendly. I would grade the overall experience with an A+.”

Review by
10/23/2017

“I think there was just a—the owners are aware of it—there was a communication issue with the design. But as far as the workmanship and everything, that was fine. I had my deck replaced. It was positive because the guys that did the work on the deck, they were an outstanding crew. The communication issues were between us and the salesman. There's no need to go into it. It's been a while now, but if I moved and get another deck, I won't go with them again. I would grade the overall experience with a B. There's been no customer service since we had the deck done. Expertise—these guys were great. Overall experience—what we thought we were getting and what we got were two different things. Recommendation—I would caution someone. When they talk to the salesman, I would tell them that they need to be very clear—get it in writing, and get pictures.”

12/27/2016

“They built a deck for my ex-wife. I would say my overall experience with them was A+. I was just acting as a liaison between them and my ex-wife. I spoke to one of the owners, and he was great. There were no problems there.”

Review by

“They installed three decks for me. Overall, I’d give them a solid A. They were friendly and open to talking to us about what was going on; the timeframe, what they saw, the feedback about the land, and the way the decks were being installed.”

Review by
12/27/2016

“They built a deck for me. I would say my overall experience was B+. Everything is fine with the deck, everything. There are no complaints with the quality. I just had some problems with it after they were done and in getting some small things tweaked and fixed.”

Review by
12/27/2016

“Overall, I’d give them a B+. They built a deck. The manager was good and took care of several issues. I had a deal with them.”

Review by
12/27/2016

“They built a new deck and finished up underneath the porch and kitchen install. I’d say they deserve a B+ for the overall experience.”

Review by
02/11/2016

“They did a deck on my front porch. It was excellent. They had a problem—my city is very picky, so they had to go get a special permit. They went and got the permit. They build all over, and they said they never had a problem, but they had to stop the work, go get a permit, and do all the stuff for the city. They worked around them, and they got it done very quickly. There was a lot of inclement weather, and they worked around it. They got it done in a very, very good fashion, and they did excellent work. The people that I dealt with were very, very professional, and the ones that came to my home and then the main office were very, very good. I have nothing but positive things to say. Plus, they put a little fence in for me for my backyard. They put in a fence and a deck, and it was all very, very positive. I would give the company an A+. I would recommend them to anybody.”

Review by
02/11/2016

“They did a deck and a patio. They were very punctual and professional, and the work quality was excellent. We had something that we needed some modification on, and they came right out and did it. I don't have any complaints with them. As a matter of fact, we're going to use them again for another job. I would give them an A.”

Review by
02/08/2016

“They did our deck. They did beautiful work. Mike, the owner of Cedarbrook, he did a wonderful job with the quality of the material that stuck within our budget, and he was able to, he did phenomenal work. He got us really, really good material for a reasonable price, and he did just a beautiful job. It was a brand-new deck. I believe the business was in like a sales flyer, like a newspaper insert. I'd rate them an A.”

Review by
02/08/2016

“It was quality work, and it was done in a timely manner. They did deck work. I heard of them from a reference from another company. I would rate them as an A.”

Review by

“We had a positive experience—it was a great experience.”

Review by
02/08/2016

“Well I think I need to reserve final decision until the job is done. They're not supposed to finish until spring. It's a pool restoration. I'd rate them good work with a slight issue.”

Review by
02/08/2016

“Good workmanship. They built a deck. I heard about them from a neighbor. I'd rate them a B. The way they covered the faucet, I think could have been done better, the spigot.”

“It was fine. Everything made it positive—everything. They were helpful, they were on time, and they were professional. I had no complaints at all. They did a deck. It was just around one part of the house. I think they took about a week. I'd say the cleanup was excellent. They didn't leave any trash or anything around. They did a very professional job. It looks fine today. They get an A from me.”

Review by
02/06/2016

“They were very good—very timely and high quality. They actually did two jobs for us. They rebuilt a front porch on the house, and they did a rework of our wooden deck. It was because the porch was disintegrating and the deck needed to be upgraded. It was well within the estimate that they gave. The porch took about four days, and the deck took about two. It looks great. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
02/06/2016

“I just found them very responsive. The owners came by checking on the work all the time, and any issues I had, they addressed those fairly quickly. The quality of the workmanship was really good, too. They built a deck for us, and from the initial meetup where the owner came in and assessed our house, the owner walked us through any issues that might have been apparent in terms of county guidelines. He took care of that. He was very knowledgeable and fairly confident in terms of the boundary lines. There were a couple of concerns in terms of boundary lines, and he kind of alleviated those concerns initially when we met up with him. He was right to the point; he didn't really oversell himself; and he was very confident in his work, his workmanship, the quality of the materials, and all that stuff. That's why we picked them. He also routinely followed up and addressed any issues we had. Overall, the quality of their service was really good—A+.”

Review by
02/06/2016

“Their attention to detail was something that was really good. I had several people come over and give me a quote. Amusingly enough, our original deck stairs hadn't been fully done—it was just on blocks, and Cedarbrook was the only company that even noticed that. So, they paid very good attention to detail and they weren't trying to sell me more than I needed. That was something else that was nice. It looks great today. We love our deck. I'd absolutely recommend them, and I have already. I'd give them an A+. They really cleaned up afterward. The two guys they had come over were very professional and knowledgeable. They even did extra cleanup in areas where the old siding was, because part of the exposed old siding was all dirty and nasty. They went above and beyond.”
