From the first meeting with Kevin we felt we had the best company on the job. He not only took the time to discuss options when he first came to our house (when it was convenient for us) but measured and drew an entire sketch of what we wanted; part of which we didn't know we wanted until he suggested it - like using wide ledge stairs to come out from the house proper. And we hadn't even signed on with them at that point. We ended up starting the project some time later, as we like to plan / get start dates set early, but Kevin touched base in-between so we knew everything was in order. During that time we also went to their showroom where we could see large examples of each Trex color, which was a great asset because we actually didn't end up going with the one we thought we would from smaller samples. Demo was as perhaps always more trouble than expected (we had a concrete patio under our old deck we never even knew was there!) but Kevin and the entire demo crew were great, got the job done in almost the same amount of time, and even worked through some pretty terrible rain. I really give them a lot of credit. We then had a pool crew doing that part of our refurbish so there was a gap while they got their work done, but Kevin and then Chris (our deck team's lead) stayed in touch throughout . Kevin even returned at our convenienc e just before framing started to layout the entire final shape in bright pink string - which also allowed some fine tuning around the edges. It was something you might not expect to be on offer but really let us see exactly what our deck would be like, and feel like everything was coming together as planned. Chris and his framing/ decking team were phenomenal as well - each day we saw so much progress, and Chris kept in touch any time there was a question or issue. Our design included a custom style bench, deck box, and lampposts (reusing our existing fixtures), and we ended up needing to add a small step as well at one side, and each of these elements turned out just as we'd hoped. We really couldn't have been happier with the results. Since completion last spring someone from Blue Star has also been back to make sure our pool cover anchors were solidly installed in the fall, and to replace screws that came with deck box hardware that turned out not to be weatherpro of! We feel like we can pretty much always call them if we have a concern or need regarding our deck and are met with a warm welcome, not as a bothersome customer but a still valued one. It is like we're part of the Blue Star family now and that's a really great thing to find when you're looking to complete such a large home project, and one that may need little things fixed or just changed in the future. We have now also experience d Trex in all seasons and are so happy with it - it is not fire-hot in the summer, rain beads on its surface, snow/ ice slides right off with a push and the spacing allows for great melting pathways right through. It is also beautiful in how it looks like natural wood, and seamlessly works with the pool in terms of larger design. We are SO glad we made this choice. We would highly recommend both Blue Star Carpentry, and Trex, to anyone looking to design and build a new deck. We expect to be thoroughly enjoying ours for years to come.
Amazing company! They've done great work in the past for my parents, grandparen
ts, and they helped me with my apartment when I needed some upgrades (new closet doors and new kitchen floor). Kevin's crew were helpful, friendly, and able to answer any question I had or my fiance had. They went above and beyond to get the job done in a timely manner and everything looked perfect. I recommend them to anyone looking for upgrading a house, building a deck, whatever you need.

I am extremely happy with my decision to use Kevin and his crew. He came in at the most affordable price and in my opinion far exceeded the quality of work I could have received anywhere. People drive by and compliment on my deck at least once a week. I would highly recommend using Kevin for any future projects.
Blue Star Carpentry is one of the best contractors I have ever dealt with. The design phase of the project was a combination of our vision with Kevin adding in details from his experience that made the final product that much better. The construction team, headed by Chris, were consummate professionals, arriving on time every morning, working in a clean and efficient manner and cleaning up at the end of the day. Throughout the installation, they responded to questions and comments without fail or delay. The construction of the deck was so solid and secure that my neighbors made comments about the strength and the deck was finished 100% to my satisfaction. In fact, Kevin from Blue Star had higher standards than me and had the team rework the very few punch list items he found. I can't think of anything in the design, construction or clean up phase that could have gone better.
Kevin and his team did an excellent job in designing my Trex deck and building it at a fair price. They did a great job of explaining what they were doing and communicating to myself and my wife. Just a tremendous level of professionalism across the board
a year agoYou can't get any better!! Kevin and his crew are extremely professional, organized, and qualified to put together your dream deck. Kevin was incredibly patient in helping us with the design and decking materials to meet our needs. For outstanding workmanship and the best customer service, look no further! We absolutely love our new deck - thanks Blue Star!!!
a year agowe just finished a very large deck project with Kevin and his outstanding crew, headed by Chris! Our 27 year old deck was beginning to rot (turns out way worse than we suspected) and we took the plunge and invested in new composite material. We had seen Blue Star's work at a friend's home and were impressed. While we did not change the design, we did need to select colors and styles and Kevin went shopping with us, made suggestions and took over from there. We felt the estimate we received was fair and more importantly, we felt confident that he would meet our expectations and do a great job. His men were there promptly at 7:30 every morning and worked all day, seeming without a break. On the final day they worked late until everything was completed. The workmanship was outstanding. We have done many projects over the years and this group was by far the best craftsmen we ever encountered. We cannot say enough superlatives about them and would be thrilled to recommend them to others without reservation. Use them and you won't be disappointed!

This is one great company to do business with! I've been using them for the past 3 years and Kevin with his expert crew are nothing short of professional! He never blows smoke or leaves me with a half finished job! I would strongly recommend them to anyone needing a quality contractor
From our very first meeting we instantly knew that BlueStar Carpentry was the company we wanted to build our deck. Kevin came to our house on time and well prepared. He gave us lots of ideas and had a great portfolio of completed jobs. He showed us all our material options and detailed the differences. He thoroughly explained how everything would be built from the cemented posts, to the wood frame, to the trex finish. Once we settled on a design we were quoted a very fair and competitive price for our custom deck. The job was able to be started sooner than expected which we were thrilled about. His extremely polite and respectful crew showed up on time every day. The worked very efficiently and very neatly - each day leaving the site immaculate. You could tell they have worked together for a while - like a well oiled machine. Mid installation I decided to change my design - no one got flustered- in fact they were extremely flexible and accommodating. The job was completed ahead of schedule and we couldn't be more pleased. Kevin was so awesome to deal with - always so positive friendly and honest. Highly recommend BlueStar to anyone in need of a deck.
Blue Star is the best contractor I have ever hired. From start to finish they were total professionals. I can't recommend them highly enough.
We had our front porch and back deck (and all gates, trim, lattice, railings etc.) replaced with fabulous maintenance free - but natural looking products. Kevin is incredibly helpful at all stages of the project - scoping it out, designing, choosing colors, materials, etc. Kevin and his team are perfectionists - and they recognize and address any and all eventualities (i.e., reinforcement to underlying structure that is needed, blending of front to back etc.) without drama or delay. He and his team personify what it means to be professional. They arrive when they say they will arrive, they work to get the job done (no lapses in schedule/reschedulings etc.). And Kevin was extremely accommodating in terms of getting everything accomplished in time for a family gathering/holiday. Absolutely fabulous. I recommend them without hesitation. Do it!
