Exceptional work! Deck/patio look great. Stair design was a little complex but Michael and his team pulled it off!Aug 21, 2018Verified
Update - 3/10/2018 I should've looked more closely when inspecting the work. Over the winter, a portion of the fence begun to lean away from the rest of the fence. First, never realized that portion was not attached to the rest of the fence. Second, discovered none of the fence posts had been installed with concrete.. they are literally stuck down in to the ground with no further support. Sure wish I had been around over the weekend the post had been put in. Now, time to figure out the best way to fix all of it. Just hoping the deck doesn't collapse or start falling apart. Changed rating from good to poor since the deck is still looking good (crossing fingers). We had a good experience with Wilson Construction. The guys were great. The fence and deck turned out beautiful. Only issues I can bring up are timeframe of the construction and communication. We were delighted that work was started ahead of schedule (Labor Day weekend) but ended up dragging out a bit longer than expected. As for the communication side, there were a few times where it seemed like I couldn't get hold of them. In the end, we are very pleased with the end results and can't wait for spring to get here so we can enjoy the outdoor living space.Mar 10, 2018VerifiedWilson Construction Services's reply
What can I say.I don't remember any telephone call or text message from Jay why didn"t he call? Instead he chose make false claims. Had he been there that weekend he would have seen the auger I rented to dig all the holes, also he would have seen that each hole had at least 50-100 lbs. of concrete in them. More in the corner post and gate post. As far as the deck is concern every hole had at least 150-200 lbs. of concrete in them. The deck was inspected three different times including a final which passed with fling colors. Jay chose to blame me and my company of unethical practices. He has trashed my repution. In fact mother nature is to blame. The hot weather drys out the wood. warps the post and fence boards. I instructed Jay that he needed to treat the fence and deck boards with a sealer.From the pictures it looks like he did not have that done. Look, I have a very good reputation both with Thumbtack and over 200 other jobs I have done over the years. I don't know what Thumbtack's policies are about misinformed customer reviews. I guess i'm stuck with this unfair and hurtfull review.
Have not started yet. Wilson has been very detailed oriented to ensure the job will be perfect upon completion.Nov 1, 2017Verified
Wilson Construction Services did a fantastic job replacing our patio deck. It is extremely well built. The carpentry work is outstanding. Mike and his crew met our deadline. They were respectful of our property and left a clean work site. We will definitely recommend them. They were a pleasure to work with. Carol and Mahlon WalshNov 19, 2016Verified
Michael is a true professional. He came in set up shop and built my family a stellar deck for $1500 less than the next quote. Being cheaper doesn't mean less quality. In fact, he did more customization than ther other builders talked to us about. He handled the permits, delivery of the material, and ultimately the 15 ft x 29 ft deck. My recommendation for anyone looking for a respectful, creative, and passionate guy, look no further -- Michael Wilson is without a doubt the guy!Aug 10, 2016Verified
