I had to rebuild the deck and roof above it because the previous owner built them without permit. After obtaining the building permit I contacted a few reputable deck builders in GTA for quotes. Green Side Up Contracting was probably the last few I contacted but the first to provide me the quote. Jay actually sent Zach the next day to inspect the site before providing the quote. The quote was very competitive compare to other contractors. After reading through the reviews here I chose to go with Green Side Up Contracting and I think this is one of the best decision I've made. The job involved:
- Demolishing and disposal of the existing deck and roof
- New concrete piers to the depth of 48" or more
- Rebuilding the deck and roof
Jay was very patience with me even when I changed the materials used for the job and provided the updated quote which I couldn't refuse. He ensured the job started on the promised date, managed the project very well, ensured my questions are answered and worries are taken cared of, and completed the project to my satisfaction.
Zach, who demolished and built the deck, was just a one man army. I've never seen a hard-worker like him. He was not only a perfectionist but also ensured the job was done to my satisfaction and provided useful suggestions when I was in doubt. Jay & Zach ensured the deck and roof was built strong and beautiful- for example, the drawing only called for 16" inch on centre joists but these guys built the joist 12" apart, installed beautiful joist hangers for the roof and brackets for the posts, wide pickets for the guard rails and many more.
In the end I have a beautiful Trex deck - (Spiced Rum spiced rum with Vintage Lantern picture frame) with aluminum guard rails. I will definitely hire Jay and his crew for any future projects.
