What should you look for in a deck contractor? First you should look for a local deck contractor, and preferably one that was referred to you by a happy customer you trust. Every deck contractor you consider should be licensed, insured and be willing to provide a free, comprehensive and written estimate. If you are looking for a Massachusetts Deck contractor with over 40 years of experience, please call or use our simple one click request an estimate button above.
A deck contractor should provide samples of the materials you are considering, and they should have experience with all types of decks. A red flag should be raised if your deck contractor advertises totally unrelated services. It should go without saying that your deck contractor and crew should be competent carpenters, not advertising plumbing or driveway repair. Be clear on the scope of the work, any deck contractor worth his salt will have a clear written contract prior to starting work, and in fact will need it along with copies of his insurance to pull a proper permit. Another reason to make sure a permit is pulled!! Lastly, make sure you both are comfortable with the timeline of the project, although rain and waiting for the building department to conduct inspections is out of your deck contractors hands, committing to finishing the job before going off to start another one is.
