5 star review

"Joel and Unique Deck Builders built a beautiful roof deck for us three years ago. I'm glad I made that choice. The deck is still beautiful after 3 Chicago winters. The workmanship is great. Plus, when I needed some help removing a section of deck in order to work on the roof below Joel sent over a crew to remove the deck and then again one week later to put it back after the work was done."

If something is wrong Joel will make sure it is made right immediately. Joel and his crews are extremely reliable and can be counted on to do a top notch job."
