The best place to start your search for a deck contractor is online. Decks.com uses past customer’s experience to publicly rate contractors across the U.S. Check out who is listed in your area. You can also use an internet search engine to find deck contactors but remember to limit your search to those that will work in your area.
Most established deck contractors now have their own websites offering an overview of their qualifications and pictures of their work. This will give you a chance to evaluate their abilities before you give them a call.
Home Shows can be an excellent one-stop resource for making face-to-face contacts and collecting information from a number of contractors. Use only reputable sources to conduct your research. Avoid contractors that advertise only from roadside signs or by leaving hang tags in your mailbox. This is not a very professional sales technique and should offer you fair warning. Try to narrow your search as best as possible. It is a good idea to interview a minimum of three different deck contractors for any project you may be considering.
