    "Nobody builds like this anymore....Nobody wants to build them (decks) the old-school way anymore." That is what our town's building inspector said to me. He was so impressed, he went and got the other town building inspector to come over and look at the pool deck that To Do List Decks with Ron and his team built. Now, I know enough about building to be dangerous, but my wife and I chose to outsource this project. I received Ron's name from Kelly Fradet Lumber in Ellington as I've done business with them with my own projects over the years. I ask for a quality deck contractor and they provided me with Ron's name and his business. Our project was an 10'x18' free standing pool deck situated around a 24' round Discovery. We met with Ron to discuss our plans. He promptly provided us a quote and a timeline. We decided to go with him after reviewing other contractor's quotes and their workmanship against Ron's quote and workmanship from other local projects. First and foremost, Ron and his team are very professional and Ron does a great job of communicating anything that can (and usually does) occur on building projects. For example 20' PT 2x20s were on back-order and Ron discussed an alternative to which we agreed to. Same deck, but the framing plan needed to be slightly adjusted. From start to finish the deck took just over a month (a few rain days in there as well.) The operation is a small team of three men who are polite, professional, and are very good about cleaning up their work space at the end of their day. That is very important to us as we have young children. I really can't say enough about the quality of craftsmanship. But you don't have to take it from me, that is what our town building inspector said. So, take it from someone who does nothing but review projects every day in his job. I think it goes without saying To Do List Decks with Ron is one of the elite deck builders around. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded....specifically the framing. The deck will be standing and everything else will be gone if we ever get hit by a hurricane. If you are looking for a deck and hate the hassles of trying to navigate quotes from various contractors, let me make it easy for you. There is only one company to call. Ask for Ron at To Do List Decks! When he is done with your project, you will feel obligated to write a review just like mine. We love our deck and you will too!

    Positive: Quality

    Ron and his crew more than exceeded my expectations on my new deck. Ron listened to what I wanted and proceeded to build me a great deck. Ron and his crew are professional and very friendly. I don't think you can find better craftsmanship. If you need a new deck you can definitely count on Ron and his crew to deliver the very best.

    Ron did a great job on replacing our worn two level deck. Ron, the owner of To Do List Decks, was on site everyday, all day to ensure a top quality deck. The job was done on time, as agreed to plus, top quality materials and workmanship.

    We needed two decks replaced after years of wear and tear. Ron came out and examined the situation providing us a good estimate of the costs and options for the shape, size, and materials. He started as promised and kept us informed about progress and findings about the under structure of the original decks. He and his crew were professional, polite and efficient. We never had any concerns about the decisions made and the professional manner in which the decks were replaced sono tubes to railings and stairs. The finished product is great, structurally and how it looks. We have received several compliments on the decks from family and friends. Ron and his crew exceeded our expectations! We highly recommend Ron and his company if you have a big or small job. They treat you with respect, keep you informed of progress and exceed expectations.

    Comments: Ron and Matt were great from start to finish. Very professional. Ron knows his stuff for sure! Top quality materials and workmanship. Always on time, job site remained cleaned and organized throughout the day and cleaned up nightly. Fixed everything the original contractor did not take the time to do properly. I would highly recommend To Do List Decks!

    Project: Build or Replace a Deck

    Comments: Ron was very professional from beginning to finish, his attention to detail was amazing!! I've had previous decks built and sure wish that I found Ron sooner, he took the time to re-build what the last hack contractor installed. Can't say enough about the quality of his workmanship. Highly recommended! if you need a deck, To Do list decks should be your only call.

    Ron and his staff did a fantastic job on our new deck. The quality of his workmanship, project details, and supplies were beyond our expectations. He was on the job daily on time, left the area clean, and worked full days to get our project done. Ron was respectful of our wishes and managed the changes we requested. Ron worked with our local town inspector and met with them to obtain the permit and CO. Every section he constructed either met or exceeded code and he explained all of the processes he uses to build a sturdy and beautiful deck. The white rails are both gorgeous and maintenance free. We feel that this has added significant value to our home and we are thrilled to have a wonderful deck to relax and enjoy over many years to come. We highly recommend Ron and would definitely use him for any future projects.

    Review: Ron was quick to respond and to provide estimates for our job. He was very knowledgeable, working with us to explore different options to meet our needs. The job was done beautifully in a professional manner and on time, despite some unexpected problems encountered along the way (quickly resolved) and the EXTREMELY HOT weather! Much attention was paid to details and everything was cleaned up nicely. We love the new look of our house and would highly recommend TO DO LIST.

    Comments: Ron is one of a kind. Master carpenter. Single handedly completed our deck in a very timely manner. They broke the mold when they made this man. My wife and I are looking forward to spending many fun family days on this deck. Highly recommended.

    Comments: I needed to have a handicap ramp built very quickly...Ron from To Do List contacted me immediately. He came out,gave me an estimate and although he was busy with other jobs, he squeezed my job in. He understood my need for this ramp was an absolute emergency. He worked on Sat. & Sun. To get the job completed. His work was above and beyond what is expected from the town as well. I will definitely recommend him to anyone and use him again. Thanks To Do List!!!!!

    Ron was great to work with! Always prompt to return calls and emails. He exceeded our expectations when replacing our unsafe deck. He even thought of our daughter and added a lower railing, that she could reach, to the staircase! We hope to have him work on other projects in the future.
