The work has far exceeded my exceptions and the work crew I would hire again.
You can bet I will recommend your company to my family, friends and even a few strangers.
There is nothing else I could ask of you to do regarding construction of my deck.
-Bob P. Southwest Portland
My wife and I can’t thank you enough for doing such a beautiful job building our deck. It was far from your usual deck job since we are on a steep hill and you had some interesting logistics to deal with. As an architect, I appreciated your professionalism and knowledge of the products and framing/structural needs. You took care of every detail and carefully thought out decisions along the way, especially some of the challenges that always seem to pop up on so many projects.
The finished product is really wonderful and has added so much to our home. We look out at it every day and are so pleased with the Trex material and cable rail we chose. The finished deck exceeded our expectations. You and your crew were always on time, on schedule and did top notch work every single day.
We thank you and your crew so much for really coming through for us. We also look forward to this coming summer when we plan to spend a great deal of time enjoying it.
Thank you again,
Tim and Sara F NW Portland
Glowing review to follow. For now, I just want to say I’m fairly ecstatic about the fence and step! I’ve been very impressed with every aspect of work on the project and am very, very pleased with the finished product.
Thank you! Maureen West Linn
Thanks very much, we are extremely pleased with the way it all turned out! Better than I imagined!
I’ll post a nice review on Angie’s list in the morning.

“Deck Masters did a wonderful job for my family and I can’t recommend them more! We had a difficult and particular job that we asked Chris and crew to do for us and they came through like champs! They addressed our needs, met them, and did so in a very quick and painless way. On site they were polite, efficient with their time, and worked overtime to meet the deadline that they gave me. In the end the deck and fence looked wonderful, and we couldn’t be happier!
If you are thinking of getting your deck and fence done, pick these guys and reap the benefits of a job well done, and for a good price as well!

“Thanks Chris. It’s been a pleasure working with you and Matt and the crew. It is clear you were the right choice for the project. The deck is exquisite.”

I’m an insurance adjuster and when I need to recommend a high quality deck or fence company to an insured I always make sure to tell them about Deck Masters. I have found that they are consistently reasonable with their prices, always perform above my expectations, and they always treat everyone with respect.
Mike G. -NE Portland
I can’t say enough positive comments about my experience working with Deckmasters. Chris was out of town and his employees represented his company with the utmost professionalism. His employees designed a fence that exceeded my expectations with quality materialls and came in at a competitive budget and finished amazingly fast. If you are in the market for high quality attention to detail, craftsmanship, and professionalism, this is your one stop shop!
Our patio covering turned out perfect. Thank you for listening to my ideas and executing the plans to perfection. Your professionalism and customer service was very impressive. Your team of workers demonstrate complete knowledge, confidence, and passion for the project at hand. They worked in the pouring rain, in a area of mud, and did it with a positive attitude. I will be highly recommending Deck Masters to anyone I know in need of your services.
Anthony S- SE Portland
“Thank you Chris! Your guys did such a great job! I can’t stop looking at it. They were all very kind as well. Such a pleasure. Thanks for the beautiful fence.
-Jaime and Sally, NE Portland, OR
“Chris and the Deck Masters team did an exemplary job from the initial bidding to the final product. It was obvious the Chris takes pride in his work, and he has hired a crew that holds the same values. The deck was finished promptly and at a price that was competitive with other bids I received offering lower quality wood and less experience. I’m extremely pleased with the final product and would highly recommend the Deck Master’s team!”
-Matt O. Tigard, OR
“We decided to go with Deckmasters after seeing their work elsewhere. We were pleased with the result – lots of attention to detail, in making things nice, meeting code, finishing the work promptly and professionally. Overall the price was average – not the cheapest, but good value based on the result. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, even to the point of being comfortable calling them first…”
– Jesse T. SW Hills Portland, OR
“I really enjoyed working with Chris on the project. He was very professional, paid close attention to detail, well organized & completed the project in a timely fashion. Chris has excellant
communication skills & kept me very well informed during the entire process. I would definitely hire Chris again to do my deck & fence.”
-Jan B. NE Portland, OR
“Amazing job. He is a perfectionist. He is precise and wonderful in his work. He has a good sense of design. He is very clean and organized.”
-Josh S. Beaverton, OR
“Chris was very friendly and on time. I am looking forward to my next project. We will be calling on him again. My husband was very impressed. ”
“Chris needed very little instruction, clearly understood the projects. Had all the required paperwork to show us. Made suggestions when appropriate and had some good ideas for another project. Tidy work, clean worker (no mess left behind). I would recommend!”

Describe Your Experience with Deck Masters, LLC:
Extremely professional and competent – I couldn’t believe they could demo our old window and frame / side / paint in the hole less expensively than a replacement vinyl window, but they did – great work too – they matched the paint almost exactly to the existing siding color. I’ll definitely look to them for an estimate when we (finally!) look to get a back deck built. Great work!
-Chris D, North Portland
Thanks so much for the side fence and gate. It looks fantastic. Denise is very happy with the results and how everything looks. As soon as we get our stairs repaired, I’ll give you a call to install a new railing. Then, on to the deck in the upper back yard!
-Michael H. SW Portland
Describe Your Experience with Deck Masters, LLC:
Chris was very professional from the very beginning. He listened to our ideas and what we wanted to do and then went to work make it happen. He communicated with us throughout the whole process and made happen what we wanted. The project was completed in a very timely manner. We have received many compliments from our neighbors about the Pergola. The guys doing the work were very courteous and nice to work with. I would recommend Deck Masters to others and use them again myself.
-Jim G. in Happy Valley
“Excellent job. Chris and his team are efficient and professional and the end result is exactly what I wanted.”
-Greg K. in N.E. Portland
“Deck Masters were on time and did quality work. They were professional and friendly. They cleaned up well and were careful around my plants around the deck. I have already recommended them to a friend.”
-Bonita C. in N.E. Portland
We recently had a fence installed by Deck Masters and we had a great experience working with Chris and his team. From my initial request for a quote to the finished product, Chris was attentive, informative, patient, genuine and thorough. Our fence looks great, even better than I imagined and the whole experience was hassle-free. I thoroughly recommend Deck Masters and will utilize them again should the need arise.
– T.V. NE Portland
I called Chris with deck masters to come out and look at my fence. I have a 63 pound dog and she loves to get thru the fence into the side yard. She has managed to damage the fence in the process. He came out and did the work the same day. He was very friendly and the work is top notch. The clean up was immaculate. I will call him for all of my future fencing and decking needs.
-Dave Evans, Beaverton
We are extremely happy with our beautiful new deck!! Chris was very professional and pleasant to work with. He was on-time, responsive, great craftsmanship and cleaned up thoroughly! We would absolutley use Deck Masters in the future and we would recommend to our friends.
– J.I. NW Portland
“I chose Deck Masters (1) Chris gave me a honest quote (2) he followed the rules that are set forth for builders (2) They cleaned up and hauled away debris and left my yard cleaner than when they started. I am very satisfied with the Job Deck Masters did and I will use them again in the future. Thank You ”

Let me start by saying Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was able to fit me in quickly for an estimate and took the extra time to listen and worked with me throughout to ensure I got the specific design idea I had in mind. We had to reschedule his start date several times due to a rock wall contractor “getting a late start.” This included rearranging the drop-off of materials with his supplier. He was professional through it all and started promptly on the day we finally agreed on. His crew was efficient, organized and worked through less then ideal weather to deliver a well constructed fence that was even better than I had expected. Just a real pleasure to work with. Thank you.
“Chris came out for the estimate, which turned out to be significantly lower than the other two bids I received. He was also able to tackle both the fence and deck at once, instead of specializing in just one or the other, which made him the obvious choice. When I called him to schedule, I let him know that I had changed the design of the fence significantly and wanted to work from a picture I had found. He said this wouldn’t be a problem, and reverse-engineered the fence from the photo. The design involved alternating regular slats with 2 1x2s, attaching them at the top and bottom, which gives the fence a stunning, artsy look and also meant that it looks the same from both sides – something which greatly pleased our neighbors, who agreed to split the cost with us (bonus!). The new design added just a dollar per foot to the price of the standard fence, so it was an exceptional deal. When it came to the challenge of working around the tree that grew over the line of the fence – actually, the tree that had knocked over our previous fence! – Chris and his workers went above and beyond in communicating with me about exactly what I wanted and coming up with a solution that was truly beautiful. This section adds a stunning centerpiece to the yard – I hadn’t expected that our fence could also be a work of art!
We also needed two small decks – one in front of a pair of French doors, and one between our house and garage. I had already acquired the Trex material from a scrap yard. It was cut to two lengths, so they had to be creative to ensure that the joints were even and symmetrical. There was a miscommunication about the direction of planks for the deck between the house and garage, but Chris went back and changed it, even though the decking had already been cut and installed the other direction. When negotiating the extra cost of labor, Chris was clearly interested in working out a compromise that I would feel satisfied with, and I was impressed by how he took ownership and approached what might be an awkward situation in a mature, straightforward fashion which made it much easier for me to ask for what I needed.
Above and beyond the work for which he was hired, Chris also generously took away some extra wood scraps at no extra cost, and even helped cut up and carry several large pieces of creosote-treated wood, which was truly going beyond the call of duty. I definitely got more than I paid for!”
-K. Bardeen, SE Portland
Deck Masters installed a beautiful cedar fence in my back yard. Chris is great. He clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and is very meticulous. The cedar product is great quality and the craftsmanship in installation was fabulous. I was really impressed with the care Chris took in making sure the best side of each plank was facing me. I feel like Chris took the care with my fence that he would take if he were installing a fence at his own house. Chris and his crew were punctual, professional, friendly and took the time to answer my many many questions. The job was completed efficiently and they left my back yard sparkling clean. I plan on having Chris install a new cover for my patio now that I see what great work he does. I value people that take such great pride in their work.
-Robin H. ,S.E. Portland
We are extremely happy with the workmanship and professionalism of the Deck Masters crew. They tore out a very old deck and replaced it with a beautiful new cedar deck. We have already asked them back to replace our patio covering. They get our highest recommendation.

“I ENJOYED WORKING WITH CHRIS & HIS CREW. I WAS ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH CHRIS & HE GAVE ME SOME GOOD INPUT. HE DID A TERRIFIC JOB ON MY DECK. AND FINISHED ON TIME. ,I AM VERY PLEASED & HAPPY WITH IT. ALSO PLEASED WITH THE PVC DECKING.”
Loretta G. S.E. Portland
Couldn’t be happier
Installed a new railing for me in one day. Chris was very communicative did what he said he was going to do, and for a reasonable price. What else could you ask for. Its rare to find contractors who both have talent AND customer service skills. His crew was well organized and careful not to damage or disturb anything not related to the job. Professional from beginning to end, I’ll be calling Deck Masters again for a new deck next year.
-T.J., North Portland
Great deck expansion!
Our project was to expand and upgrade our existing cedar deck. We chose Deck Masters based on an extremely reasonable bid, Chris’ detailed estimate and drawing, and customer reviews. We couldn’t be more pleased with our choice. Chris and crew performed high quality, exacting work. Additionally, Chris was very responsive and a great communicator throughout the process. Our deck turned out beautifully. We highly recommend Deck Masters!
We appreciate all your hard work!
–Lori & Gary, SW Portland
Seriously, I can’t stop admiring my new fence. You all did a fantastic job. I just sent a love letter/review to Angie’s list, should show up online in 24 hrs, they say. I should have enough saved up by next year to redo my little deck. In the mean time I’ll recommend you to everyone I know. Thanks again!
-Janis M. Northeast Portland
Tough Project, Great Job. We needed a 16′ foot roll back gate, a 10′ double swing gate, metal posts in concrete, all on custom metal frames that would be totally hidden to look like a completely wooden fence. All the guys at Deck Masters pulled it off without a hitch. Beautiful job that all the neighbors have commented on.
-James O. Southwest Portland
Very helpful! I had several questions about a custom fence and emailed Chris. He promptly replied with helpful, specific information and was very personable. Great customer service!
-Home owner from Indiana
Deck Masters Are Great. Chris and the rest of the guys at Deck Masters are great. They built a roof over my back deck and did a fantastic job. They were punctual, professional, and super nice to work with. I definitely recommend them 100%.
– Matt S. Oregon city
Great new composite Deck 27X14, professional visit, clear contract, excellent service. Worked in the rain! Good clean up afterward. Excellent Contractor and crews. Very pleased.
-Mike A. Beaverton
Great job on the deck and stairs, they look fantastic. Quality work from start to clean up. I would be more than happy to recommend Deck Masters to anyone thinking about a project.
-Craig E. Sellwood
Mick at Deck Masters was friendly, professional, and did a great job on our fence. He was very flexible as the plan changed about whether or not to demo our neighbor’s existing fence, and he left the work area clean and safe at the end of each day.
We had a miscommunication about the height of the gate, and when I mentioned to him that it wasn’t as I had expected, he wasn’t rude or defensive–he offered to redo the gate for the cost of materials only, and was totally understanding and courteous about the whole thing. The fence is beautiful and solid. We hope to build a deck one day and I will definitely call Deck Masters again.
-Miriam N., North Portland
Tore down my old fence and built me a new one. They were fast and very professional. The work quality was excellent! They worked in the rain and cold and didn’t complain. Just all around good guys.
-David, North Portland
Easy to work and communicate with, promptly answered questions, professional, and most importantly, we love our beautiful new covered deck!
