"They did a great job building a new front porch on my 1915 house. Terry did the design work and it looks like it was always there. I'm really popular with my neighbors now! 12/5/09 They still have not installed the railings."

Project: Build or Replace a Deck or Non-Masonry Porch
"Terrie was the only contractor who brought samples of the different deck composite. Terrie was the only contractor who brought a photo book of many of the decks his company did. Terrie was the only contractor who was able to give me a written estimate on the spot. Terrie came with samples, a laptop, and a printer. He was able to work up the bid right on the spot. I spoke to 4 contractors from Service Magic and one contractor a friend recommended and Essential Extras had the best price. Due to the rainy weather, it was a month later before the deck was built."
