Jake, John and Ryan constructed a beautiful 20 x 10' deck on our new house, with stairs descending to the back yard. The deck is western facing, so we were initially concerned about the sun exposure. We decided on a Brazilian exotic (tigerwood) several times more dense than redwood. Jake worked up a solid bid, worked with our budget, and made a few recommendations to keep costs reasonable. Although the tigerwood was a little hard to procure--and given its density, a bit hard on the equipment--Jake and his team built an unbelievably gorgeous deck for us. They asked us questions along the way, listened and then worked with our feedback, and really put a great deal of care into the construction. A+++, would very, very highly recommend.
