I met with, and obtained bids from several builders before deciding on using WOC, to replace two multi-level decks, the upper deck being partially covered by a tiled roof. The bids were very close. WOC presented the most professional, highly detailed proposal. WOC initial presentation was a “Deck Inspection Report”, presented after two inspections of the decks, which included drilling holes in the support columns to insert a scope camera to inspect the interior frame condition. The report gave detailed information of the scope of the decay, settling of the decks, and a recommendation to completely replace the existing decks while maintaining the roof above.
I appreciated all the details provided in the written “Scope Of Work”, wherein the specifics of installing a new redwood multi-level deck with Fortress fe26 rails and replacing stucco columns were enumerated and greatly detailed for each stage of the rebuilding – Deconstruction; Deck Frame; Decking/Rails; Redwood Deck Treated Frames; Stucco Repairs; Fireplace; Clean-up; and Warranty. The warranty stated this scope of work is covered by a 5 year warranty against defects of craftsmanship and 20 years against structural failure. See “Exclusions”. At the end of one year an additional coat of sealer will be applied to the deck.
My confidence in the work was enhanced because the report included information such as “Decks will build per the plans approved by the Regional Building Department. The project will have the plans reviewed by a registered Colorado engineer. The existing roof will be supported by temporary posts down to concrete piers. New piers will be placed to support the roof per engineering as required. The support posts are planned as 8×8 Douglas fir full length or LVL with moisture/insect treatment at the bottom.” There were a few changes initial proposal due to the supporting the roof, otherwise scope of work was as stated.
David is a consummate professional. David managed all the details of this large scale project which required a lot of coordination between WOC, HOA, neighbors, vendors, subcontractors and inspectors. David personally met with my neighbors; met all the HOA architectural and construction criteria; met with the numerous county inspectors throughout the project; and all were impressed by his quality work and professionalism. David was onsite most of the time, committed to providing superior workmanship and reliability to deliver a quality product. Communication about when work was going to take place, including subcontractors and inspections, was excellent.
Sincere thanks to WOC and David for a job well done.
