"We waited a long time to get a new deck and now we wish we had it done years ago.  We have enjoyed our deck all summer. The entire process was easy. You arrived on time, helped to brainstorm with design ideas and followed up when you said you would. You had a brilliant idea of building around our maple tree and researched it to ensure our tree would be safe." Michelle and Stephen 

"We wanted to thank you for a job well done. I asked you to start the job and finish it without interruption, keep the place as tidy as possible and to clean up after you were finished. Rick, you and your very cordial crew met and exceeded my expectations. A Job well done and I will certainly recommend you to all friends and family. Thank you again." Rick and Marsha Dowd 

"Just wanted to say a big thank-you to you and your team for doing such a great job.  We've noticed that every nail in the floor is in line, for instance, and other details that we feel another contractor might not have cared about; we felt that you treated our deck as your own, that it was not just a job. It really shows that you care about your customers." All the best, Lora and Guy. 

“I LOVE my new deck. The whole experience was stress-free. Rick helped me design a deck building project that suited my needs. The deck was built quickly and efficiently. His crew was hardworking and professional deck builders. The quality of the craftsmanship is amazing. Everyone who comes to see my new deck is impressed at how well built it is with the finishing touches."Celine Bisson 

"I want to thank you and your team for the great work you did on building our deck.  We love it.  It makes such a difference to our backyard. Your employees were always very professional with me and my family. A special thanks for getting the job done, as promised, before our big event. We will definitely recommend you to friends, family or neighbors who are thinking of a deck building project." Jackie Legault 

Skills and Tools built our deck a few years ago and we were so impressed with that job (and the our deck still looks terrific). In no time at all, the basement was completely finished and it looks fantastic!  Rick and his crew helped refine the initial design, were helpful accommodating to changes we made along the way, and ensured the final product was of high quality. Pam and Harold 

"We are extremely pleased with the basement renovation performed by Skills and Tools. The quality of their work exceeded our expectations and the job was completed in less time than expected.  They followed up on commitments and took pride in the work they were doing. We consider the project a total success and would use Rick and his team again in the future without hesitation." Jeremy and Nadia


"Skills and Tools did a great job remodeling our basement. Rick and his crew were professional and courteous during the entire project and they stayed on track and on budget. I would highly recommend Skills and Tools."

Thanks Matt

 "Rick did everything the way he said he would - calling first thing in Spring after last Fall's estimate and turning up with his workers as scheduled.  He did two things no other contractor did - he checked the building site for underground cables, and installed a guard rail at a basement window well as a safety requirement.

 Hi Rick, "Just a quick note to say thanks for your team's great work on building our deck. With the hot weather (finally!) we've really been able to enjoy our pool and eating outside. The kids are able to get in & out of the pool easily with no little toes getting stuck at the edge and we're really glad to have the lockable gates at top and bottom. Thanks again, Karen Musgrove 

"My new deck is AWESOME.  My wife and I love it.  Rick and his crew were very quick, flexible, friendly....and did I mention fast?  Four working days total!  The workmanship exceeded my expectations.  My neighbors are all jealous. I plan on using Skills and Tools again for my fencing."

 ”We are very pleased with the work that Rick and his men did at our house. From the start, our project was a challenge. We had to deal with a particularly difficult permit approval. Rick walked us through every step. Our daily discussions made us feel like we were always in the loop. Rick always made sure that his customer came first. The material he used were of premium quality." Peggy
