“Jamie came out to our house soon after a call was made for an estimate. He showed us pictures of his previous work, offered ideas, listened to my ideas, and presented options for challenges posed by job. Next, Jamie provided a detailed quote with a quick turnaround. Once the job was contracted, he worked diligently to get the permit and pre-order long lead materials. Was sensitive to existing construction situation, including protecting new driveway, working with tight spaces for transporting materials, repairing damaged sprinkler lines, and maintaining a clean job site. Matched brick with original brick used for house. Purchased and installed door for existing porch at no extra cost. Once the job was near completion, didn’t mention final payment until everything was complete to my satisfaction. The deck is very solid and looks awesome!

“Jamie worked with us to design two decks and a pergola. He then built all of them for us. The decks are made from Eon (a synthetic material) and the pergola is constructed from Cedar. They are large structures, the decks are approximately 1300 square feet in total and the pergola measures about 25’by 20’. The work was done in conjunction with having a patio built and major landscaping so it was a complex project involving multiple people and companies.
We interviewed multiple contractors and visited with their references before choosing Jamie and Cedar Works. What caused us to choose Jamie was the quality of the work we saw and the recommendations from his customers. The work he did was beautiful and his work was head and shoulders above the others we looked at. Jamie gave us great advice and guidance all through the process even giving us some tips on working with other contractors, for example obtaining a lien release. Our deck is beautiful and the quality of the workmanship is outstanding. Jamie was open to changes and very open to working with us to accommodate our design changes and requests.”
“Thank you for the great job on the new deck. It looks like a work of art. I am very pleased with the good looks and the sturdy construction. The project shows true professionalism.”
“We really enjoy the deck and like how it has turned out. Thank You.”

“We had a cement block porch with a cement cap that was poorly constructed by the builder of our home on the back of our house that needed to be removed and replaced. We wanted to replace it with a deck and wanted to enlarge the surface area to make it more usable. After a year of no shows, etc. by other contractors for estimates. I joined Angie’s list and decided to call Cedar Works. Jamie came out promptly and within a week, had CAD drawings and estimates of the cost of the job. Jamie began the permit process as soon as we submitted our deposit and within a month, he was able to start work. The tear out crew was finished within two days (not an easy tear out) and all material was removed and post holes placed for the deck. After the county approved the post hole depth, Jamie’s crew was back the next day to begin construction. They worked for almost ten days to finish a large deck with steps, were very neat, courteous, and responsive to any questions or problems that occurred. They were able to point out and correct damage that had occurred to the outside sheathing of the house from water runoff from the old porch and the charges added on were very reasonable (less than $100.) The crew worked during a very hot humid period of weather and was diligent about getting the deck finished. In addition to constructing the deck, the house roof partially extends over this area and requires support from columns, Jamie had specified two large columns instead of the three small ones on the original porch , which opened the space up, but required additional reinforcement from under the deck which his crew communicated to him and subsequently performed.”
