Review by in Lake Elmo, MN
We had a large Azek, no maintenance deck and stairs put on and it is wonderful. We have received so many compliments already and it has only been finished for a few days. It's going to be perfect for all of the grill outs we host and for our kids to go out and play in any season. Benny and his team are very easy to communicate with and they met all timelines that we were given. We are thrilled with everything and plan to use Carter Custom for future projects.

Did a great job. Very happy with the work and deck. We asked Benny to do aluminum instead of other materials and he did. We were happy please with the attention to detail (e.g. the lock so our kids could sleep outside on it). Sad we had to sell the house but we would hire Benny and all again, and the new owners of the house are loving the deck! thanks!

Work was NOT done to contract, and now we are in litigation with this contractor because of that.

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,

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.
