What is the date the work is desired to be done by? Is the scheduling of the contractor and homeowner compatible?

Remember the saying you can have only 2 items with new deck construction. Quality, service, and price. ONLY 2 of the 3. Which of the 2 is priority for you when determining your deck contractor? Be sure to discuss this with your potential deck contractor(s) to find the right contractor for construction of your new deck project.
