Backyard Restoration

Simon and his crew came in and restored our backyard. They redid the sod, removed an old patio, and poured a new one. Our backyard was never used because it was a muddy, weedy, mess with nowhere to host. We now have a beautiful backyard, with a large patio that we can enjoy this summer.

Simon and his crew were great. They were kind, respectful, and professional. We are very happy with our new backyard.

Great experience with Shellshock!

We worked with Simon and his team in 2016. He recently reached out to me to check in on us and our backyard. In light of his diligence I'm writing a review.

To say the least we had a bit of a challenging situation in our yard with water and drainage issues, so I was worried we would have a hard time with our builder and the challenges they might face. S immediately identified our problem with some trouble shooting and plot plan review.

During our build we felt as if all of our concerns were met with a willingness and drive to resolve. We even added an autocover after our pool was built and Simon did not bat an eye at the added work. I am so very satisfied and would recommend this guy to anyone with a unique challenge other builders might shy away from.

Thank you Simon & team!

pool and spa construction in King

I spent the last three years of my life building a home in King. I dealt with over 40 trades and had good experiences with all of them except Shellshock Construction. Simon is the co-owner I dealt with.
He has/had a builder partner named Micheal. The shell Simon constructed for me leaked. It took him months to repair after many many calls. He winterized his shell in November when it was below zero, after months of calls. He ruffed in a self cleaning floor system incorrectly. He ignored his obligation to finish the work telling his co-workers that I was not a priority. He increased his price, ignoring his own contract. I thought of suing him, but he already changed the company name. I asked him for an explanation for the $13,000 increase in cost? He said he made a mistake. In the end I had to finish the project myself and hire others to finish. It cost me 1/2 of what he was asking. If you want to be misled to, overcharged, ignored for 8 months and suffer from poor workmanship then Simon is your man.
