I will post pictures next spring when my deck and porch are set up. Love these guys. They did a fabulous job on my deck and did exactly what I wanted on my screen porch and were pleasant to work with. I had five other estimates, and no one could do what I wanted, and these guys did. David and his crew are master craftsman. And Diane is a wonderful designer and will also help you with some landscaping ideas if you ask.The estimates I got varied by $27,000 among the five. These guys fell somewhere in the middle but did an excellent job at what I consider a fair price for the work and materials. If you want a contractor who actually does what they said they were going to do Woodridge deck and gazebo are who to use.

Woodridge tore down our old wooden deck and replaced it with a new Trex deck. The finished product is very good, Didn't quite fulfill the timeline that was promised/expected, however with a project like this, i don't think things typically stick to schedule.
Chris was nice to work with as our project planner, and the carpenters worked hard and were friendly.

We needed to build an extension to our existing deck. I got a few quotes and decided to go with Eric and Woodridge Builders. He was not the lowest price, and admitted that he wouldn't be because hiring a one-man carpenter would probably be cheaper. However, we thought his price was reasonable and that it was worth a little more to have the design drawn out, the permit taken care of, etc. He also did what he could to accommodate our target price. Eric knows his stuff and was very helpful throughout the entire process. For example, the existing water spout was in a location which the deck extension would have covered up. The other contractors we met with suggested using a trap door to get access to the spout. Eric was the only one who suggested that it would be easy to move, and we definitely preferred that. He was able to move it 10 ft, and get it away from the deck so we don't have to deal with a trap door or a wet hose sitting on the wood. There was one minor issue with the deck stairs that we asked his guys to fix. Eric said it was no problem and it was fixed almost immediately. It is often hard to find a contractor who is trustworthy and provides good service. Eric and his guys were top notch and I'd definitely recommend him.

I had a new deck put in last year. Professional quality work. I had an issue with my deck and it was fixed immediately. I came home from work and walked out on my new deck and had nothing but big smiles. I am very happy with Woodridge Deck. You do not have to search for anyone else- choose Woodridge Deck & Gazebo!!

I found Woodridge to be a very professional and informative company, especially Dave Bouza and his crew. Dave and his crew readily took time to answer any questions we had and did a great job on our deck. Woodridge worked with our towns building department to get our permit. I would recommend them and use them again if a project needs their expertise.
Mark M. in Highland Park, IL (Yelp)
I had 3 bids, but Woodridge was the only one that provided drawings of what it would look like. I'm very happy I picked Woodridge Deck & Gazebo! Thanks

They were extremely professional, delivered on everything they said they would do. Starting with Dave and my first meeting and quote. I loved the 3D drawings--they helped me decide what changes I wanted. Cristina was outstanding at keeping me aware of any changes or delays. The deck is beautiful and everything was cleaned up. I am very happy.

We had a front deck put on our house. From the original visit and drawings to the completed project we were happy. The workers were great and cleaned up at the end of each day. We have received many compliments on the project. We will definitely use this company again for future decking needs!
Homeowner in Arlington Heights, IL (HomeAdvisor)
Excellent craftsmanship. They worked quickly once they started and cleaned up nicely when done. They were the highest quote I received but they Soent a lot of time with me on the design. The deck really stands out and isn't just an ordinary deck. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that I was surprised when they showed up to start working because the operations manager was sending emails to the wrong address. It seems like that should have been a phone call. Otherwise the sales and office staff kept me very well informed.

We had an old deck demolished and also a large concrete front stoop
demolished. A cedar was built on the side of the house and a
composite deck was built on the front of the house. Pillars were
installed on the front of the house to hold up a front overhang.
We were very pleased with the quality of the work. Both decks are
beautiful. The corners of our decks are mitered and we receive
compliments from our friends and neighbors who remember what our
old porches looked like. Eric was always very pleasant to work with
on this project. He gave us his cell phone and it was rare that he
didn't answer. If we left a message, he would call within the hour. Of
course, we only called during business hours. The work is excellent
quality. The result is even better than we expected. The service was
excellent. We are very pleased and would recommend Woodridge to
our family, friends and neighbors. This project was especially
important because one of the decks was on the front of the house. I
don't think that the front of our house ever looked this nice even when
it was a new home 40 years ago.

Well organized, top quality work and the price was reasonable. I'd use them again anytime.

I am thrilled with the quality of my porch. The contractor was honest and helpful.
Mary B. in Palatine, IL (Home Advisor)
The job went very smooth and was done quickly. The workmanship was not perfect, but Eric had things corrected quickly. The greatest value was in the design. We gave Eric an idea of what we wanted and he took it from there. It's unique and highly functional.
Thomas G. in Lake Zurich, IL
Eric was great to work with. He was very professional and helpful. I got multiple quotes and he was the most thorough. The design was great. However the carpenters that did the actual work were sloppy. They forgot to screw down some boards, some balusters were uneven, boards spaced too far apart and crooked. I told Eric about the worst of them and they came back and adjusted a few things but I couldn't have them fix everything and I wasn't going to waste my time dealing with the headache. They could have taken a little more time and did a better job but overall I'm happy with the deck/price
Jesse M. in Lake Bluff, IL
Great value- Oscar started early at 7:30 AM which contributed to longer days and a shorter overall project duration. They even worked on Saturday due to favorable weather conditions in December.

We interviewed 3 companies and chose them because they seemed the most professional. The company was patient while we had to go through a variance and helped with drawings. Once approved, their team dealt with permits and met with us to modify design and materials. From the tear-down to the rebuilding, the teams always left things tidy and they were respectful of our property. The carpenter, Oscar, added some detail that we didn't expect but really adds to the overall look. The job went faster than expected. We were apprehensive about trying the new composites next to our older wood trim, but you cannot hardly tell - it looks fantastic and will be easy to maintain. Eric the owner met with us prior to work and near the end of the project to make sure we were completely satisfied. Deck's beautiful and we're happy. He was also quick to respond to questions. You can tell he cares about his business and reputation. Definitely recommend.

From start to finish Dealing with Eric (Owner), Kat (Office Manager) Jose (Demo, Base, Piers, and Landscaping), and Ivan & Oscar (Carpenters) has been exceptional. From conception to the finished product everything went rather smoothly. Eric drew up all of the plans and priced out my project quickly and accurately. Kat went above and beyond my expectations. She communicated and was very accommodating with scheduling of the crews throughout the whole project. The crews did excellent work down to every last detail of my deck, balcony, and landscaping project. Everyone was very willing to cater to my every need. The finished product looks better than I could have ever imagined. All in all it was a great experience working with all of them. Pricing for this project was very good as well. When it comes to your outdoor decking and balcony's look no further than Woodridge Deck and Gazebo. The People, quality, and pricing are all Top Notch!!!
Ted S. in Bloomingdale, IL
Eric's team met with us twice before we signed with his company to build ur new deck, guided us through the process answering all of our questions and offering valuable suggestions. Even though our project was much smaller than most, they devoted the time and effort to make sure we got the product that we wanted. Both demo and carpentry crews were extremely courteous and professional and even worked through inclement weather to get the job done, We contracted in late April and, after some design changes (at our request), our deck was completed in late June. The finished product far exceeded our expectations. We would definitely use this company again and would highly recommend them
James P. in Rolling Meadows, IL
They were very professional. I received more than I expected. Woodridge was a 5 star company and I would use them again.
