"Don't miss the opportunity to work with Deckwerks. I found everyone on the job site to be professional, polite and fully capable.

"Excellent work. WIthin a day of the original phone call, someone came by. By the next week, they were working. I had a back deck completed. The workers were prompt, friendly and pleasant. They knocked it out in three days, even finishing the last part in the rain. Everything was great."

Unique Deck Builders
Deck, Patio and Outdoor Enclosure Professionals in Lake Forest, IL
"Unequivocal recommendation for Joel. I started the project with someone else and after repeated delays and hassles I gave Joel a call and we got the project moving along quickly. The best thing about Joel is that he stays in close contact and is flexible and responsive to change. Trust and responsiveness were best in class. Joel and his crew were genuinely invested in making sure that I was happy with the end product and he didn't try to nickel and dime me at any point. Another big plus is that all of the guys that work for Joel were friendly and professional, which really mattered to me given how much time they were spending at our place."

Del's Woodrite Carpentry, LLC
Deck, Patio and Outdoor Enclosure Professionals in Lake Forest, IL
"Woodrite replaced my badly warped and worn pressure treated deck and railings on my porch in July of 2015. It took a bit of discussion and back and forth to get the materials I wanted in the colors I wanted quoted. This was not a major issue as I knew the owner was preoccupied with some other issues at the time. We ultimately got the quote completed and the work executed. The craftsman that did the work was extremely methodical and very accurate. He kept me in the loop regarding every potential problem or issue that arose and got my approval regarding his plan to deal with it. He made sure the existing framing on the porch was sound and reinforced it where necessary. He installed composite decking and railings with the highest level of craftsmanship. The job was really excellently done. The carpenter did hurt his back and also had some trouble with his van in the middle of the job. This is not a major issue but it did take a couple of extra days to complete the work. That and the delay in getting the correct quote are the only reasons I gave the company a "4 star" review instead of five. But I will reiterate that these problems were unforeseen and not in the company's control - stuff happens. Overall the job was excellent and I would definitely use Woodrite again and recommend them to my friends."
