Even though we've been known to not say "no" to alot, there are some things that we just don't and won't do........not because we feel we're above the work, but because we have no experience and really don't want to take jobs away from the experts. Therefore, we refer folks that call, to other companies that we've worked with previously, and that have helped us:
1. We do not seal, stain, paint, or clean decks. We refer everyone that calls..whether we've built their deck or not to ondeckservices.com Dan and his team are kind enough to advise you even if you don't hire them to perform the work for you.
2. We do not build or install fences/fencing. We did once upon a time, but we cannot install them or build a fence for what the fencing companies can.....they're much cheaper, and without a middle man. We refer everyone that needs this service to http://eadsfence.com/ that lives in the local Cincinnati area.
If you happen to live in the Northeast area of Ohio, we have ordered many great products from the following two awesome companies:
http://www.hooverfence.com/ and http://www.americanonefenceandrailing.com/
We've installed their products all over the Cincinnati area. They will help you find what you're looking for, and they ship all over the country.
3. We do not do the landscaping at 90% of our deck install jobs. Yes, we can provide the landscape fabric and stone directly underneath our decks if requested. But the in depth, detailed landscaping, or paver areas, we do not install. We do work directly with http://midweststonescapes.com/network.php. Ryan Davis, the owner, can be seen on the DIY Network creating some beautiful yards.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, and sometimes, it takes another group to build your deck. We've established some great business relationships over the years, and we wouldn't have had success without them........a great referral network is a must in business, and helps you deliver everything needed by a potential customer.
