Skye Builders talk about how they have a service team that comes out and walks through the design before the construction begins. However, they did not coordinate at all, or they were trying to push a deck design that used the least amount of deck materials. When they actually did the construction, we asked for them to stagger the seams on the deck, however, they placed all seams right as you would walk out onto the deck. We had one part of the deck that narrowed into a corner, but since they skimped on the deck materials, they had to use three pieces to span a four feet and several of the boards were not screwed to the deck at both ends. They also did not cover up the concrete and it rained, so there was a two square foot piece of hardened concrete that stuck to the driveway. When they cleaned up the hardened concrete, they did not wash the entire driveway down and left behind concrete shoe impressions across the driveway. Then they came out with asphalt to cover over the foot steps, but they only sprayed three foot sections down the driveway, with gaps between each section. A friend also had a similar deck done 20% cheaper. On the positive, the workers did do quality work building the deck.

Skye Builders built a back deck and then replaced the (elevated) front porch. They took care of everything from obtaining permits to cleaning up after the work was done. They came in on budget, too.
