Balcony Reconstruction

We worked with Ken from Gateway Outdoor Living on reconstructing our balcony. Ken and his team were the ultimate professionals. They guided us through the process, with clear and transparent communication. They stayed on budget and were extremely prompt, with attention to our schedules as well. The end product is gorgeous and exceeded expectations. We would absolutely hire them again!

Porch painting and step repair

Ken and his team did a great job! The quote was fair and the work actually came in under budget as some of the steps materials were still in good shape and could be re-used.
Ken and his team were also very sensitive to my elderly mother as the work was done on her house.
Highly recommend.

You should hire Ken!

Ken came out to quote our project and help us organize our ideas for what we wanted to do with the tired front porch. The project exceeded our budget this year so we did not proceed. However, Ken is very knowledgeable, he showed up on time, and provided a detailed quote in a very timely manner. We will not hesitate to reach out to Ken again in the future when we are ready to proceed with refreshing our front porch and back deck.

Thanks!

Backyard Patio

We needed to replace the stairs from the backyard door with a patio. We emailed Ken from Gateway Outdoor Living for an estimate and he came within the week to provide one. During the site visit we discussed what we required and what we envisioned. Ken provided his opinion on what would meet the requirement in which it was a better idea that saved costs and we were happy with his suggestion. Ken provided all the necessary documents and answered all questions through emails while finalizing the estimate. Ken was courteous and prompt with his responses and he spoke from experience. Ken contacted us and gave us ample notification as when the work would be completed. He came on time and was understanding when we were late. He completed the work within the day in which he originally stated and stayed within budget. He cleaned up the work site and was very efficient. Ken was great to work with. The patio he constructed was very nice and we are very happy with his work and would hire him for any future work and would recommend him to others.

rebuild/new porch

1. always on time
2. always friendly and open to communication
3. came in below budget
4. very satisfied with the work
5. Would hire them again!

a difficult project because the original porch in very bad shape, had to be removed and rebuilt/reconfigured. They were open to my ideas and had great suggestions of their own. Went above and beyond with relocation of down spout also.

Deck and Covering

Ken and his team did a great job in building a new deck for our house, including covering for the deck, as well. Ken was very responsive to our needs, helped us make informed decisions in the designing of the deck by providing various options and sampling for deck material. Ken was also very punctual, built the deck within the committed timeframe and above all else, just really delivered a high quality product. He even offered and helped fix some minor issues with our backyard, for which we are very thankful. My family and I are really happy with the end result and would highly recommend Ken for your landscaping needs.

I had to have some previous repairs redone. Ken did a wonderful job, working hard and diligently. He came when he said he would and charged the price he had quoted. His work will last for many years to come I am sure.
