Don and his crew did a phenomenal job on our fence and deck. Without any reservation we would recommend him for your backyard needs. Two of our neighbors also went with Don based on our recommendation. We were unsure on what we wanted, Don was very accommodating and offered great suggestions and photos of other jobs to help us with our decision. Don and his crew were very professional and respectful of our yard as well as the neighboring properties. The crews positive attitude, knowledge, and there attention to detail made the process stress free. They were friendly, extremely hard working, and kept the yard clean and tidy. At the end of each day they made sure everything was put away and cleaned up. We were so surprised at the outcome, it came out better than we could have imagined. We absolutely love our backyard and would use Don and his crew again should the need arise.
Hired them to replace about 100' of chain link with 6' fencing. Quoted in April, signed the quote, and estimated for mid-July.
Estimated completion date shifted to late August despite perfect weather all summer. Plus quote turned out to be completely wrong, price would have come in much higher, and then they bailed out and suggested we find someone else to do it.
0/10. Would not recommend. Their work looks good, but that's assuming they actually do it.
It is important to stress that we did not do a job for you and no money exchanged hands so this is not a complaint about our work. We re sorry we were unable to meet your time expectations and we accept total responsibility for falling behind due to the record demand we are experiencing this year. However, when a client receives their quote it is their responsibility to look it over and let us know if anything is missing. You saw that the concrete work was missing but did not report it, and instead just assumed it was included. We do over a dozen quotes each weekend and sometimes a detail might get missed, - we are not perfect.
You said your neighbour found another contractor who could do the work faster, for cheaper, and you liked his ideas better, so you already had one foot out the door. You first suggested you might go with them unless we could get to your job earlier, not us. So in reality we didn t bail on you, you already had a plan B that you liked better. So, sorry, maybe we should have tried harder to convince you to stay, but we're extremely busy and we didn t want to hold you up.
So in conclusion we regret that we could not get to your project on time, but we cannot stress enough that we are well worth the wait.
We wholeheartedly endorse Don Eckardt and his crew. From the initial quote and revisions to completion, the company did an entire backyard reno - 2 wood decks, 2 stone patios, walkway and retaining walls as quoted. Don's creativity and attention to detail helped us realize our dream back yard. Work was started on time and completed in the 10 days quoted. The crew was a pleasure to have around. Clean-up was done every night and at the end of the project a final inspection and clean-up closed the project.
We hired Don and his team to remove and replace our old deck and fence, and we were very pleased with the entire process from start to finish. Don provided us with a comprehensive quote which we found reasonable for the scope of the work, and then he and his team hit the ground running. We were quite impressed with the team's courteous and professional manner in addition to their commitment in maintaining a clean job site. Don also provided good advice for us as the job progressed which resulted in a quality final product that exceeded our high expectations. Accordingly, we highly recommend Don and his team for any fence and deck removal and installation jobs.
