Gathering bids: what to ask

When meeting any potential deck builder, it’s important to be clear about how he or she will handle the project.

Have you built with Trex before?
What would you describe as your specialty?
Do you have any experience building multi-level decks?
Can you help design our deck, or will we need architectural plans?
Do you have a business license and the proper liability insurance?
Do you handle municipal permitting? HOA approvals?
What is the lead time for a new deck project?
Do you have references to share?
