“Hal Co Fence & Deck did a really nice job. They were the only ones who came out. I had these stairs that go outside, it's not part of a deck but it's part of a yard and numerous people would not come because it was not doing a deck. So, they also do small jobs which you can't find too many people that will do small jobs and they got it done very quickly, within a day, and they cleaned up really nicely. That's why I was happy because no one else would do a small job and they were the only ones. I would give them an A, they were good.”

“They did what they said they were going to do; not everybody does. They did both a fence and a deck at some point. We had some problems with the construction of some of the siding on the house and we had to get that fixed. After that, it was fine. I'd give them a B. They showed up when they said they were going to. I didn't have any problems with their cleanliness. They knew what they were doing.”

“They did a great job. Very pleased with their work. They were fast, number one, and very professional. I had a fence installed on the perimeter of my backyard and I had an 8x10 deck put in on the back of my home. I'd give them a B+. There was one issue I had to correct them on but that was a little miscommunication on both our parts.”

“I liked everything about them. They were prompt, they were clean, they cleaned up behind themselves, and they did an excellent job. I cannot think of one thing bad to say about them. It was a deck job. A+, I couldn't have been happier. I would absolutely recommend them.”

“They were very good. I liked just everything the customer service was good—just the final product, everything. I believe it was the decking they did. It was timely and they cleaned up after themselves. I'd give them an A+.”

“I pretty much had a positive experience except for the deck part. They left a bunch of nails and pieces of wood and saw dust everywhere. One job was a fence and one was a deck. I'd give them a C. The quality was pretty decent I thought. Punctuality was pretty good.”

“They did a deck for me. In terms of building the deck and the time frame and stuff, it was positive. I'm happy with what they did. They built the deck. I would say they're an A-. They left everything clean. Overall, I was pretty happy with what they did with the product and everything. Two main things I was not happy with: one, the spacing of the columns was not kind of even. They're OK but on one side it's lopsided a bit so I was not too happy with that. The other thing is, when I called them, I called them based off of one of those coupons that they send in the value pack flyers that came with a 10% discount but they changed sales guys on me after two months of talking and planning and all this stuff and all of a sudden, there was a new guy who came and he was rushing through signing the contract and all the stuff. So, I signed the contract but I forgot to give him the coupon itself. I told them about it later on and I thought that they could apply it to the bill. I paid everything and they said, ‘oh we took the 10%.’ I said no you didn't take the 10%. You gave me the quote and invoice as planned. And I talked to them asking them for a refund of 10% and they totally ignored it and nobody even called me to say, ‘hey look, we appreciate you putting the time to send it but this is the explanation,’ whatever it is. And so that left a little bit of a bad taste in my mouth after I was pretty happy with the deck that they built for me.”

“They built a deck and then there were some quality control issues after it was built. So, they were good to work with before the deck was built, but as soon as it was built they were not good to work with as far as some problems with the building of the deck that needed to be addressed. I'd give them a D. Their initial work was good but when there were problems, they wouldn't address the problems easily and it became a real hassle and the owner of the company, it's a pretty small company, was very rude. So, I guess because I have to weigh that part in, I would say the quality is poor. It's such a duck position. Before it was built, they were nice and they were fine because they wanted the business. And then once they had all the money and the deck was built and there was a problem, then they didn't want to hear from you. There were issues. I felt like they should've known about those issues and that is a direct result of their expertise. I don't care to ever have to deal with them again.”

“They're locally owned, good pricing, and the quality is really good. They've actually done two jobs for me, a privacy fence and a deck on my home. I saw them on a fence in my neighborhood.”

“It was good work, and it was done on time. They built a deck for me. The company gets an A grade from me.”

Review by

“They were able to execute the design we had agreed upon for the deck. We had two bids with another company, and overall, this company offered more. I'd give them an A.”

“As far as I can tell the quality of work is okay. I was not pleased with the on site supervision. I don't know if they had other higher priority work come up or what but they had a very knowledgeable guy here the first day and then he left and I had a couple of not quite as knowledgeable guys who actually screwed a couple things up they had to fix. I don't know if I would recommend them. They built a deck and stairs. They came recommended. I'm on the board now and we've had them do some work building a fence for us and our property manager said she was pleased with their work. I had an estimate and they were right in there with the other couple estimates I got price point wise. Customer service was okay, I've had better I've had worse. The whole experience was highly average. One is work and one is service. Work I think the deck is probably okay so I'd say the work is probably a B the whole experience I would probably say C+ at the best.”

“Their work was exceptional, they did a great job, and they were easy to work with. The built a deck from the upstairs down and it was just what we wanted and they were able to do it for a reasonable price. We had a fence on the property all ready so we just did the deck. We chose them based on price and the recommendations we had received about them. They were very easy to work with. If we had questions we could call and we were able to get them answered. Probably like an A-.”

“I liked their speed, just how quickly they did the work and stuff. They did a deck. Everything looks good I'm just not happy with the posts because it looks like the wood was old wood or low grade wood for the posts but aside from that the deck's really nice. I just shopped around and price wise that's what I was looking at. The owner himself came to the house so that's definitely a good thing.”

Review by

“They were prompt, they were on time, they did what we had asked them to do in the contract, and if we had any problems, they followed through with it. They put a fence up in our backyard and also built some stairs for our deck. They were local. They were prompt when we scheduled an appointment for them to come out, and they were prompt when they came out.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“The guy that worked with me just knew what he was talking about, and he was courteous, and he was a good guy, no complaints. I had a fence put up, just fencing, wood fencing. No deck work, just the fence. I chose them based on pricing. We just compared several. We compared probably 3 or 4 companies, and they had the best rate. I would say A.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“Everything was prompt. The initial estimate was prompt and so were the return phone calls. When it came time for them to do the job, they would always call me and say, ‘So-and-so will be coming tomorrow at this time.’ When they had to reschedule, they would call me and say, ‘Hey, they're not going to come tomorrow, so don't wait up for them.’ But they were very prompt and very informative with what was going on. We had the entire deck redone from scratch, so we had a back porch deck with railing. They had to put piers in the ground and everything. They were in Best Pick Reports and that's what we used. I would rate them as an A.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“Everything is done, what they built is excellent. I like the quality of work. The salesman was easy and the quality of the work is excellent. It was price, value because we had shopped around and gotten different estimates and just general knowledge and easiness to work with. I had multiple decks and fences built. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“I didn't particularly watch them, but the fence has been up for five years or so. They've done some other projects for me also. They came and cut down some trees, and they fixed me a new deck because I had a tree fall on my house. They came and worked on that. I would rate them probably pretty high, about as high as I could go—A+.”

Review by
10/02/2015

“They provided me very competitive prices for the job, they showed up on time and did quality work, cleaned up properly and I'm very happy with the results. They replaced my deck on my house. That was it. It was a competitive bid and they gave me the most responsive bid for the job. A, solid A.”

“Their work was fine. They supplied some decking boards and leveled out a deck in a corner. They taped up some rails, and they did a good job. It looks like new, the work was good quality, and it was done on time. I'd give their service an A.”

“Hal Co built a composite deck for me, and I liked them so much that I had them install a fence, too. The workers were knowledgeable and courteous, and they cleaned up after they were done. The customer service was good. I’d give them an A.”

Review by

“They put in a part of my deck, and they did a good job at that. They cleaned up after themselves, and they had good customer service. I heard about this company through word-of-mouth. I'd rate them an A.”

Review by

“Hal Co Fence & Deck didn't finish the job on time and there was some billing errors. They can work through it, so I would say the experience was neutral. It took longer than expected. They corrected the billing errors to my satisfaction. This was the first time that I used them. They extended my deck. I would give them a B+ rating. I probably would recommend them to others with caveat.”

Review by

“I ended up using Hal Co Fence & Deck to build an elevated deck on the back of my townhouse. They were very fast, and they wound up being the cheapest quote that we got. They were able to deliver in our time frame, too. They came out and got it done exactly the way we needed it. They got all the licensing through the county for us; we paid a small fee for that. Then they were able to get the deck done almost in two days. The first day, they set the cement and pillars, and the next day, they were building. I'm in a townhouse in a community with a homeowners association, so I only had a certain style that I could get. They deserve an A grade.”

“Hal Co Fence & Deck were one of the worst experiences I ever had. What happened was first of all, the management was terrible. They kept promising that things were going to be done at a certain time. It never was. They said the workers were supposed to show up. They didn't show up. They finally showed up and worked a little bit. We waited a day or two—they didn't show up. One of the worst things I had was the pricing of the material. We had to change the order because they didn't like the color. We said, ‘OK, that's fine.’ The strips that are on the outside of the screen porch, they are pretty much some type of plastic, is what it was. So the initial price that they gave us was $1,000. It was $1,000 for the strips, and they're just slim four-inch by, let's say, eight-foot strips that go on the outside of the screen. Once we had to change it from white to kind of like an almond color, and when we came back to him and said, ‘Okay, we have to change the color,’ the price difference was something like $2,300 different. The workers themselves—outstanding workers. The only one thing I had to complain about was they didn't put the little caps on. I think I paid way more than I should've. I wouldn't have them back and that's the whole point so it's a failing grade for me. It's the little things they did that I was not happy with, but overall, it's a failing grade.”

“Hal Co tore down our old deck and built a whole new deck with new footers. Their work and service was excellent. We had used them before for another project. I like that they’re responsive, and they give you what they promise. The cleanup was excellent, and the finished product exceeded my expectations. They’re an A+ across the board.”

“They did exceptionally good work. I'm very satisfied. They were polite and on time, and they did a very good job. I'm going to get them to do some more work, too; they did some fence work, and I want to get the other part of it finished and the deck done, too. It's about a six- or seven-foot wood fence. It is the first time I've had them do work for me. I've seen their other fences in the area, and they looked nice, so I thought I would try them. My expectations were definitely met. I’d rate them an A+.”

Review by

“We had Hal Co Fence & Deck do the deck and if it wasn't good we wouldn't have hired them to do the fence. It was a new fence. They did a four foot aluminum fence. They also did a gate and I think it was the Sierra or Floridian. We didn't even bother to call anyone else for estimates because we know that they have a good reputation. In fact, I've even heard some people say that they wanted to hire Long and when they heard that they already had an estimate from Hal Co, they were like, ‘We're not even going to come out and give you an estimate because we know that we can't beat them,’ and it's good quality, so I'm happy with them. He told me that there's a 25 year warranty. In fact, my house is even for sale already and when I asked him about the fence I don't believe there is a warranty and if there is, it's like five years but it's non-transferrable. Three technicians came out. They were done with the fence in a couple hours, but it wasn't a very large fence. It wasn't a very big back yard. I'll just give them an A+. I did tell some people about their service and there was a lady over there who did use him and had a fence put in and a gate and she had a big yard, so I would definitely tell people about Hal Co and how well they do.”

“Hal Co was really good. I've used them a couple of times. One time, they built a deck, and another time, they did repairs on the deck. Both times, I had a good experience with them. I've referred them to friends, and they were well liked. They showed up when they said they would, they cleaned up after themselves when they were done, and they did a good job. The customer service was good, and they delivered what they promised. I would grade them an A.”

“They did a new deck. They had done a fence for us, and we liked their fence work, so we had them for decks too. There isn't anything overwhelmingly positive, but they were timely, they returned phone calls, and they got the work done fast. There wasn't anything negative—it was all a good experience. We would grade them an A. I’d recommend them to someone else.”

“I was very happy with Hal Co. They did the backyard fence and the deck. It was a board-on-board wood fence, and I stained it. Everything has been maintenance-free since they've installed it. I would rate them an A+. This was my first time using the company, and we had no issues at all.”

They worked on a deck for us.”
