We recently hired Picketts Choice to replace our old wooden deck with Trex composite decking. Chris Pickett is the owner operator and was really a pleasure to work with. He took time to explain the project and recommended that we visit a showroom that had many Trex decks on display. We settled on Island Mist with a cocktail rail and solar lighting. Overall I am very pleased with the finished project. Chris and the crew that handled our project were professional and communicated with us throughput the entire project. I asked many questions about how they were going to do certain things and they were very patient and explained things in detail. I would highly recommend Picketts Choice.

Review by in Sykesville, MD
We renovated our downstairs' bathroom. Chris walked us through the project when going over the contract. He put us in touch with companies to pick out our tile, and granite vanity top. His team did outstanding work and assisted us in resolving a couple issues unrelated to the renovation. The bathroom looks great!!

Review by in Owings Mills, MD
Chris and his team did a great job on our master bathroom remodeling. It is a no hassel and pleasant experience. Their charges are very reasonable but put in quality work. A small example shows his committment to customer satisfaction: we initially wanted glass shelves that matched our shower glasses, but decided to use cheaper materials due to higher quote than expected from the glass contractor Chris introduced to us. In the end, Chris helped install the glass shelves for no additional cost to us at all. Some work Chris does not do such as granite countertops and shower glasses. However he recommends others who usually does quality work with reasonable charges. If we wanted to get a couple quotes from other contractors, there was never pressure to use his recommended contractors. We end up using his recommended granite contractor, but not the shower glass contractor since we found one who offered the type of installation we preferred at a better price. Chris was cool with that. We would definite work with him again for other remodeling projects and highly recommend him.

Project: Build or Replace a Deck or Non-Masonry Porch
We just had a large Trex Transcend deck installed on our new home by Pickett's Choice Home Improvements (including accent lighting). We have worked with so many contractors and builders over the years, many of whom have to be carefully supervised and watched. It was a very different and good experience with Pickett's Choice Home improvement because we didn't feel the need to constantly watch over the work to make sure things were done correctly and well. Furthermore, I have an eye for detail and I expect a very high standard of workmanship. I am delighted to say that the finished deck met all my expectations. Chris maintained excellent communication throughout the process and notified us of the days the workers would and wouldn't be there. The workers were extremely pleasant, polite and respectful. We have already asked them to do more work inside the house - contractors like this are hard to find!

We replaced our old wooden deck with a 20 x 14 trex composite deck. I have to say that the finished product is beautiful!! We have had many people tell us how beautiful it is. We had a few bumps in the road along the way, but Chris was always willing to work with us to give us exactly what we wanted. We feel that we got a quality product for a competitive price.

The Pickett team tore down our old wobbly 30 year old deck and replaced with a bigger new and up to code deck in a week. The workers were so polite and courteous. I spoke with the manager on a daily basis . They built exactly what we asked for - only better. They were always on time and worked all day long. The price was comparable with other bids but I chose them because they were highly recommended on HomeAdvisor.

Pickett's Choice was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had to rearrange the timeline a bit due to a septic replacement and they were extremely accommodating to our schedule. The deck turned out fantastic and we couldn't be happier. Definitely recommend their services.

Our new screened porch and deck look like a picture out of Southern Living Magazine. We like Chris very much. His work crew are top notch pros. Our experience has been super and we look forward to many more projects together.
