"MH Contracting delivered an impressive structure, the credit for which any contractor would be proud to claim. (See attached photo. Note that the owner (me) has not yet performed his scope of work, namely painting, staining and installing balusters.) Mike was the first to contact me when my firm price, competitive quote, request for quotations was posted on Home Advisor. The project scope was basically to demolish a large existing 37 year old, 832 ft2, two-level cedar deck and replace it with a similar pressure-treated pine structure. All construction materials, equipment and debris had to be manually transported to and from my driveway, which is 13â€™ above the deck grade, because vehicular access was not possible. Mike and his brother Scott are the heart and soul of MH Contracting, each of them two-tour armed services veterans. There "exceed expectations and make it happen" attitudes are easy to recognize. They and their entire hard working crew were without exception professional, polite and respectful. Since this was a firm price, competitively bid project I expected an effort would be made to get change orders approved which would increase the project cost. This did not happen, it was never even brought up for discussion. MH Contracting suggested and implemented several structural, quality, and aesthetic improvements, all with no cost increase. These included: Grade 1 vs grade 2 lumber, 2X10 & 6X6 vs 2X8 & 4X6 sub structure, free standing rails posts to eliminate house siding penetrations, extended posts above deck railing and added toe-rail for improved appearance, raised a sagging door sill to fit on the decking, and constructed a new step to the lower deck. They told me upfront, "we only leave satisfied customers behind". I am a believer"
