Customer Review

Unique Builders was highly professional throughout the entire process, from our initial meeting with Joel, to the deck proposal, to the high quality finished product. The builders on site were extremely pleasant and they are true craftsmen. Not only the overall construction of the deck but the small details of the woodwork and the building technique make for a top-notch result. It is a pleasure when you hire a contractor and you enjoy the personal exchange and when the result of the work exceeds your expectations. We are very satisfied with Unique Builders and look forward to enjoying our amazing deck for many years to come. Joel and his crew get top marks. Kim and Todd, Chicago, Illinois.
