I discovered Bob Scanlan on HomeStars and he lived up to the terrific reviews posted there. Bob showed up personally to examine our backyard and discuss our plans. At our request he made suggestions to enhance our original plans, including the use of an exotic hardwood. Bob then provided a detailed quote, with a structured payment plan and a tentative schedule, explaining that the job would be weather dependent.
Bob also served as the general contractor for our backyard, bringing in professionals to handle the concrete patio, lighting and staining. All of these men performed at a high level and to our satisfaction. Bob held himself responsible for their work and he Bob himself readily dealt with any questions or concerns.
Our backyard is now beautiful, the envy of our friends and neighbours. The detail in the woodwork, the care in the actual construction and the coordination of the various facets of the project resulted in the end product exceeding our expectations.
I heartily recommend Bob (and his son Jason) to anyone needing a deck and coordination of an overall backyard plan. He is easy to work with and provides excellent service to his clients.
