Mike does very high quality work. We are extremely pleased with the new deck he constructed. Prior to finding Mike I went to 3 other contractors. The first gave me a contract and then never returned my calls. The second would not write up a complete contract and the third never returned calls. I am glad they didn't call back because I got Mike to do the work and again it is outstanding. Mike is also an active coach in our community. As his feed back shows here, you will not regret getting him to do your work.

Mike Thornton and Tru-Built Construction Co. are highly professional. We were very pleased with the finished product. Very high quality of work. Daniel and Billy were professional and hard working, cleaning up after themselves daily. Everything exceeded our expectations.

High quality work. Michael and his crew were hampered by a fairly hot, dry summer. Progress checks along the way added confidence in their work. Final inspection with county rep went well. Would recommend his company.

I needed a wheelchair ramp built immediately. The crew from Tru-Built completed the job with a quality product in a very short amount of time. I highly recommend them. Michael Thornton was a pleasure to work with.

My husband & I are so pleased with our deck! We selected Tru-Built after obtaining quotes from 4 other companies. Michael came to do the quote himself & he was very personable. His quote was competitve & Michael provided great design options. What set him apart from the competition was the pictures of what the deck would look like against our house so we could visualize the finished product. His crew was friendly, cleaned up after themselves, & worked quickly despite the rain in the Fall. We would definitely recommend Michael to neighbors & friends and would consider him for future projects! The deck looks AWESOME!

I normally do not provide reviews for anything; however, Michael and his crew was such a pleasure to work with that I feel that I must. Even though the project (a new deck) was plagued by rain, delaying the project some, it was completed in timely manner. His crew was respectful and courteous and on several occasions had me rolling on the ground laughing. The site was kept clean and organized. Michael�s concern for ensuring that the deck was safe and met or exceeded code requirements was refreshing. The final product is outstanding and I wouldn�t change a thing. The entire crew�s professionalism and quality of the work is TOP NOTCH! Would I recommend Michael and his crew? I would DEFINITELY recommend Tru-Built and Michael to anyone.

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.
