Pat is knowledgeable, professional and creative! He is also fast. He s very experienced and confident. Our deck is beautiful. I loved watching the daily progress as it came together so quickly! He drew plans for us so we knew what to expect. He required his staff to clean up after each day s work. He also was on site for most of the construction and worked alongside his crew. They did not take days off, other than weekends, and worked in the rain! He came up with creative solutions. Pat is wonderful! You won t be disappointed!

We moved into a rental home in Ocean Beach and needed a rear deck built off the back slider. Pat was very responsive! The quality of work was top notch and he's an easy guy to work with! Highly recommended.

Pat turned out to be everything I wanted in a contractor. He rebuilt my front porch and it is beautiful. He was on time for everything and was able to complete the work in a timely manner. He even did a couple of other things for me that were not included in the original contract at no additional charge.

Pat responded to my request for assistance on my deck right away. We set an appointment and he was there on time and was able to diagnose the structural issue with my deck quickly. He provided us with an estimate that was very affordable and we moved forward with the project. He came back two days later and completed the project for us. We couldn't be happier with the work that he performed. I highly recommend Pat and his company.

We found Pat Forrest from HomeAdviser and he proved to be an exceptional craftsman for our home project. Pat was patient with us in scheduling construction and helping us in our decision of how our deck should look (My wife and I can become terribly busy and we take our time coming to a final decision on construction issues). We hire only the best craftsmen and contractors to work on our home projects, and Pat shows the same enthusiasm in the designing and building as we did. He was persistent, innovative, hard working, and above all creative. After we discussed the deck design we wanted I felt so comfortable and trusting of him that we allowed him to free-build the deck to include the features we wanted. Pat and his associate, Tom, did a fantastic job!! If you're looking for a specialty craftsman who builds decks, the only person I would recommend is Pat Forrest. Rest assure that with Pat running your project, you'll have the best tradesman in the business.

Pat and crew were great to have around the house for our demolition and rebuild of our deck. Demolition was quick and neat not an eye sore for the neighbors. Materials and lumber drops were on schedule. Pat Forest construction was "on time, on schedule, and on bid". We loved the look of our new deck

One word for Pat Forrest Construction - awesome! We had obtained multiple bids for our deck, and at times were ready to give up on the project. We were blessed to finally meet Pat. He is without doubt the most honest contractor I've met. He built an absolutely beautiful deck for us, and worked with us each step of the way. You cannot go wrong by hiring him.

Pat has been wonderful to work with. The deck will be finished tomorrow, and is looking good. He knows his business and has been so helpful. This has been a good experience. I am so glad he has been the contractor for this project. I will always recommend him.

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.
