John Whitehead and his crew are fantastic guys and did a great job on building my deck in North York. It's not a huge deck but is on two levels/storeys joined by stairs. John's quote was not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either. John was very responsive to my request for a quote and came to my house at times that were convenient for me. His quote was very detailed and outlined the measurements, type of material everywhere (from PT structure, cedar skirting and rails, composite deck boards, etc.) Most of the other quotes did not go into that level of detail. The quote also came with diagrams along with measurements so there were no surprises - a nice touch especially considering no one else's quote provided me with that level of information and detail. Lastly, when John himself came by, each time he was super respectful to me, my home (taking off his shoes when entering) and family. He takes the time, even during the quote process to explain exactly what they were going to, that the grass was likely to get damaged, the garbage and dirt for first while, etc so there were absolutely no surprises when they started to the end.
His crew came in the mornings and left late in the afternoons. I never once needed to be home, although I would come home from work earlier just to watch the construction of my new deck.
I would highly recommend John Whitehead and his skilled carpenters anytime to anyone. The finishing touches are excellent and despite the very small premium compared to other quotes, you get complete ease of mind, a responsive contractor, detailed quote and backed by a quality brand parent company (Hickory Dickory deck) and warranty. Why would you consider choosing someone else? Just give John a call and you will see.
