When we prepared our 9-year-old ground-level deck for staining in the spring, we noticed rot at the bottom of all four of the pillars supporting the pergola above it. That pergola has well-established trumpet vine growing on it, which we didn't want to lose, but obviously those pillars needed to be replaced. Stuart was the only one of the contractors who quoted on the job who understood that we really wanted care taken not to kill the trumpet vine. He and his crew were very pleasant, came on Canada Day, dealt with an unpleasant surprise when we found out the original deck builder hadn't extended the interior supports for the decorative pillars right to the top, did very attractive careful work, cleaned up the job site perfectly, and finished in a single day. I'd definitely recommend this company to other people!
