Jess was totally professional from beginning to end, after 5 years of ongoing complete home reno, we've deal with quite a few contractors, but definitely left the best for last. Jess and his crew came when they said they would, finished exactly when they said they would, flexible around other contractor' schedules, the site at end of day was always tidy, difficulties encountered were presented with professional options we could choose from (what true professionals do), top workmanship and very competitive pricing. A+++ contractor.
Amazing Attention to Detail
“When we first met with Jess we thought we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted. Jess's suggestions on how to expand and improve upon our design were fantastic. We are also immensely pleased with the workmanship, choice of materials and amazing attention to detail that your crew exhibited throughout the project. Further, we were amazed by your crew’s diligence in performing the work (sometimes under adverse weather circumstances) and getting the project completed on time and on budget. Thanks also for all of you being neat and courteous throughout the project and keeping us apprised of what to expect when and involving us as necessary. We greatly appreciate your work and have already recommended you to several friends and acquaintances. If we ever undertake a similar project we will definitely give you a call
Jess & Tony were great! Starting with the estimate and deck plans, Jess took the time to listen to what we wanted and stayed within our budget. We had other quotes but we were really impressed with Jess' ideas to ensure we had the best design.
To be honest, the finished product surpassed my expectations. I did not realize it would turn out so beautifully! I'm really happy we chose Build It Outback. I would hire them again for other back yard improvements.
We hired BuildItOutback after seeing some of the other work they did in our neighbourhood. Everyone we asked spoke very highly of their crew.
We were very pleased with the professionalism and they proposed ideas that improved on our own as well as cut our costs.
We have a beautiful deck that we spend a lot of time on
Last summer my wife and I decided to get a cedar deck for our new home in Milton, but the company we wanted to hire for the job was unfortunately booked into the fall. We then contacted three other companies, and each came to our house to provide quotes: one was Build It Outback, a smaller company which had been highly recommended to us by the owner of the business that was booked, and the other two were large, well-known companies with portfolios on their websites.
We decided to go with Build It Outback for several reasons: Jess, who runs the business with Tony, not only gave us the most reasonable quote for the cedar deck we envisioned, but was also both very polite and professional, which is something that's unfortunately not too common these days. Also, the completed projects shown on Outback's site and the photos Jess brought with him looked great. Finally, we wanted to get a town building permit for the deck, since we had no fences yet, and the subdivision grading had not yet all been signed off, so we didn't want any possible problems from inspectors. Jess was ok with that, whereas the other companies tried to talk me out of it since it would be a "hassle" and interfere with their workschedule.
Since Outback was also busy with other projects, they weren't able to start as early on our deck as anticipated, but at least this was communicated to us. Once Jess, Tony and their crew got started, it was apparent that it would be a good experience since they really took pride in their craftsmanship and were a pleasure to deal with. When the deck was completed, it was not only beautiful but exceeded our expectations in terms of quality, including the cedar railing, pergola and privacy screens. Apparently we weren't the only ones who thought so: At the final inspection, the building inspector mentioned to us that he doesn't see good workmanship like this very often! Since then, we've received many positive comments about our deck from neighbours and friends, we love spending time on it, and it's also increased the value and appeal of our home.
One more thing I have to mention is this: after finishing the job, Jess and his crew apologized that they had no pressure washer with them, since the clay residue from their construction equipment didn't wash completely off our driveway using a hose. The next day, one of the Outback crew members returned all the way from Burlington to our Milton home with a pressure washer, and spent half an hour washing our driveway until it was clean! Customer service doesn't get much better than that. We'd gladly hire Jess, Tony, and their crew for any future projects, and recommend them highly.
We just moved into our house which is an older house and needed a deck and fence around our pool. We were also working with a pretty strict budget. Jess took our very vague idea and came up with different designs that could work. He gave us options that looked great and fit into our budget. Jess and his crew were very efficient and fast. Our new deck looks great and we get lots of compliments! We would always recommend Build it Outback. Awesome job guys!
Build it out back were great. My husband and I were very please with their services. They were on schedule and completed both our deck request and customized shed to exactly what we were looking for. We would highly recommend them to any family and friends and are looking forward to more work done by them at our new home!
