They were prompt and efficient and about 1/3 less in price than the other bids.

Our replacement deck is stunning. A stainless steel cable railing was painstakingly installed and great attention to detail is evident in the finished project's outcome. We were so satisfied, we hired Carter Custom to install a new gas fireplace and refurbish our old one,

carter customs exceeded my expectations. i just wanted a basic 10X12 deck, i thought it would just be a small plain deck. they added a few very nice touches that made it look great!! the stairs are nice and wide and it is built very heavy duty, it also looks like they actually care about the work they do, the craftsmanship and quality are all there. i will definitely be hiring them for future projects.

Project: Install a Pre-Fabricated Fireplace Unit (Gas)
From design to quote to install, top notch company. They got all the permits and inspections, made sure that everything was included in the original quote (including plasma cutting and the extended chimney insert I needed), no surprises at all. When they were going to be an hour later than they said, they called the morning before to let me know. Best part, my wife is happy. A+.

We had a deck that was very old and rotting and now we have a beautiful new deck that we love, it was a smaller deck so it was done in less than 2 days. We would hire Carter Custom again with no hesitation, and would recommend them to everyone who needs home construction!

These guys found some problems with carpenter ants and water issues when they removed the old deck. They immediately offered a solution and we were happy to approve the additional work, even though it would put us over our budget. The problem was taken care of in a day's work.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
