Since 1987, I have built decks one at a time by myself. More than 500 of them. I used the slogan "One Man One Deck At A Time" to describe the process, and people seemed to be able to relate to the idea. The message was about reliability and accountability. People enjoy doing business with the guy who is actually going to do the work. Tim Copeland Construction developed a solid reputation for this.
For references, I have customarily supplied a complete running list of jobs since 2006. I've seen a few operators who just put out 2 or 3 of their finished jobs. Not good enough. Who knows if those few are relatives or if they exist at all. This map may show a deck completed near you, and you can get a reference from the owners.
In addition to building new decks, I offer an array of existing deck renovation services, such as repairs, and alterations. I send staining and cleaning jobs to a very good subcontractor, so feel free to contact us about that too. I let you deal directly with them, so that you don't have to pay us to manage a subcontractor.
"My earliest memory
of wanting to build decks
was inspired by
the need to contain my younger brother."
I provide free estimates on Sundays; it's a day where they can be done in a more relaxed manner without you having to take a day off and me not having to abandon the current customer. It seems to work out well for everyone.
Of course, everyone receives a written bid, with a solid price--not an 'estimate.' If you don't change the job, your price won't change.
We have lots of photos and videos of our projects, before, during, and after on the DECKS link above. Some of them also include customer testimonials, such as the one shown below.
If you have any questions,or want to set an appointment for a bid, please email me at email@example.com or call
