We recently purchased and moved into a new house coming in from Florida. We would like to add a deck this spring, but really don't know any good deck builders. Thought perhaps the helpful folks on this board could point us in the right direction. Thanks!

We hired a contractor to do odd jobs around the home and liked him a lot. Apparently decks are his specialty. He told us they're his favorite projects. His name is Ed Ott with Dando Construction. I found him on Angie's list.

Here is one example of his work - not a deck but he's excellent with building things out of wood! Oh, and he is sort of a grizzly old guy that works for himself, by himself (network of specialty contractors on hand if needed, like electrician, etc). By far the most inexpensive we could find.

When we bought our house the realtor never saw the kind of deck we had before. We called Decks by Schmillen and he assured us the deck was sound and a very good build. Love to find an honest person!
