We hired Sandbar Construction Inc. to rebuild and expand our 20 year old builders' grade deck. At our first meeting, Steve spent quality time with us assessing the state of the existing deck and pillars, and providing potential options for us in terms of both layout and building materials. We received his quote no more than 2 days later. He quoted us on the complete job, from tear down of the original deck to painting the posts and trim of its replacement. His quote was very detailed. The cost of each step of the process, including the cost differentials for materials were included. When we decided to do the tear-down, staining and painting of ourselves, Steve didn't blink an eye, even though it could have meant messing up his schedule.
The construction was a dream! Steve and his team did a tremendous job. The worksite was always tidy during work hours and at the end of the day. His communication with us throughout the project was excellent. For example, every day Steve took the time to talk to us and let us know where the project was at the end of his workday. If he had another project on the go at the same time, Steve let us know how that could impact our construction schedule. The reality is that Steve is so organized that we never did feel impacted by other projects. The deck was built and railings installed before we knew it.
While his quote was a bit higher (and not dramatically) than some others, he is worth every penny. Our deck is amazing compared to other cheaper decks in our neighbourhood. Steve's commitment to detail, quality workmanship and customer satisfaction makes hiring Sandbar Construction a no-brainer.
