I wish they would allow you to post pictures because the work JAMES did was worth 10 stars! We had 3 decks that surrounded 3 sides of our in ground pool area that was in bad need of repair. James came in and repaired the existing decking and did such a fantastic job that we decided to keep going! We added another (large) deck along the 4th side of our pool area. James is honest, a true carpenter - he has attention to detail like no one else! He puts these little touches on everything he does that makes everything look awesome! He and his team are extremely easy to work with, very clean and neat, and boy do they know their craft! If you need wood work done - LOOK NO FURTHER! Hire James with confidence you will get quality and honesty! Great price - absolutely amazing job! We now decided to keep going... we have more and more work we are hiring James for. Now that we have FINALLY found the guy who does the job right - we can finally get things done that we have wanted to do for quite some time! THANK YOU JAMES! YOU ARE AWESOME!! :)

If you need a professional deck contractor - CALL JAMES! I had an unfortunate experience with someone who did not deliver a quality deck replacement. The frustration of trying to find the RIGHT person for the repairs for THAT job ended when I found James. He is THE BEST! His pricing is competitive and his expertise is phenomenal. He is professional, personable and he kept me informed through the entire process. I only wish I had found him sooner. ALL CONTRACTORS could take lessons from James in how to truly deliver the best in customer service and value!!! Thanks so much James for restoring my faith that there are still some good, honest people around.

James is a hard worker who took extra steps in preparation to be sure our re-decking was level. He treats his projects like they were his own. I would recommend him, and he was competitively priced.

James is my hero! The new deck, with the underdeck system and new lighting, as well as the new upstairs storm door, is absolutely beautiful! They did a fabulous job and under budget. AND, he completely wowed my 83-year-old Mom, who lives in the apartment on the lower level of our home, and can be somewhat difficult. (The underdeck is her front porch roof.) In her words, "It is the most beautiful deck I have ever seen!" Great job, James!

There was bad weather during the work and Better Build worked even though the conditions were not ideal. The work site was kept neat and clean.

The gents came out on time, worked diligently and performed the job well. I sold my house and had to have 7 4X4 deck supports upgraded to 6X6 as a condition of the sale. I was under the gun to get it done quickly and done right. They delivered on all counts.

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.
