Special thanks out to one and all members of the Hard Decks crew and all the people working behind the scenes to make our deck replacement absolutely beautiful. The crew showed up every day with a plan and worked it flawlessly. Andy kept us informed of daily progress and made sure the work site was cleaned up and ready for the next day of work. Highly recommend this business to anyone interested in deck replacement.

Integrity, Pride, and Attention to detail in their work is what we can say about Hard Decks. From the first meeting with Jayme to the talented carpenters (Andy , Shawn, and Trace), they were all polite and professional. When unforseen problems came up, they were honest and knowledgeable about explaining potential solutions that made sense. We highly recommend Hard Decks if you want quality and professional work.Thank you Hard Decks for a beautiful outdoor living space.

Using Hard Decks was a great decision on our part! We now have a gorgeous, usable deck. This company produced a finished product that is professionally designed and built. Quality workmanship all the way. They cleaned the area each day and were on the job sight as promised. Happy to recommend this company. Thanks to the entire crew.

We had an unfortunate accident with a tree falling and destroying our deck. Jayme was incredibly easy to work with from the start. He was able to get over and start working on a plan to remove the old one and build a new composite deck within a few days. He listened to our requests, and offered a couple different options. We never felt like we were pushed into more than we wanted or wanted to spend. They started the project within a reasonable amount of time, and the quality was exactly what we expected. I would highly recommend reaching out to Hard Decks if you are in the market for building or replacing your deck.

The Hard Deck crew replaced our front deck and ramp. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product. The composite decking and new railings look great! The crew was great to work with and were great with my mom when she had to use the ramp while they worked, that goes a long way in my book. Jayme was also very good to work with. He was very responsive through the whole process.
