What Previous Customers Said About Us
"I Couldn't Be Happier..."

“Building Character LLC, as the name implies, is an above quality company! We contracted them to replace two decks and add a pergola. From the start, early communication was clear and covered all expectations of design. Construction and build was done in less than 3 weeks which include several rainout days. We took pictures and asked questions everyday. The crew was professional and always answered my questions without hesitation. Cleanup and final inspection went without a hitch. Everyone at Building Character are true professionals that know there craft and I would not hesitate to hire them again. I highly recommend them, they are worth every cent spent and will not disappoint!"

"Amazing Job"

"I hired Building Character to replace my old deck with a brand new composite deck. The entire process from planning to execution could not have gone better. Jennifer helped us plan our project and was very easy to work with. When it came time to build our deck, Josh and his crew did excellent work and communicated daily on progress, while also being very flexible to making any needed adjustments on the fly. You can tell his crew takes pride in their work and the final product shows it! I'm very happy with my new deck and I highly recommend anyone looking to replace theirs give Building Character a call."

– Mark Plavko –
"Professional and Knowledgeable"

“Fantastic work!! We were looking to replace our old wood deck that was starting to rot and to add a concrete patio to our backyard. There was great communication from the beginning, transparent quote and discussions around where money could be saved. Easy process to pick out materials and colors. The crew that came out to complete the work also had great communication when issues came up. Most importantly, the new deck and patio are beautifully done and just what we wanted.”
