In selecting Colorado Deck and Framing we talked with a number of construction companies specializing in deck builds – CDF stood out from the rest for a number of reasons, responsiveness, design ability, steel framing, quality of build, and excellent references from existing customers.

We were impressed from the get-go with Robert Shaw’s capacity to quickly understand our disconnected ideas and then his creativity and patience in working through several concepts that helped bring together our dreams into a coherent design in line with budget.  Key to this was CDF’s use of CAD technology which enabled us to visualize multiple designs in real time during our initial meetings.  Having decided on the final design we tested CDF’s price with a couple of others deck builders and were delighted to find we could take advantage of a long life steel frame at a price that matched or beat other builders using traditional wooden framing.  Lastly, previous CDF customers provided excellent feedback and I signed the contract with confidence and high expectations.

The build phase of the project was one of the smoothest construction projects we have commissioned. CDF provided the “one stop shop” that was promised by managing the permit process and approvals, the HOA approvals, and the various contractors including, electricians, plumbers, stone masons and stucco workers required to complete the project. Within the first few weeks of the project we could see the build quality and attention to detail that had been promised pre contract. What was also evident was CDF’s flexibility, where there were build choices CDF presented them, offered opinions and we jointly made the final decision. At no time was this a discussion of option A costs, X, option B costs Y, etc. The price agreed up front  was the final price of the build. Timing of the project was completed reasonably within expectations, with CDF ensuring that the trades and materials were scheduled to plan. Considering the build was rained off a few times during the August “monsoon” season, we were impressed by CDF’s commitment to keep to schedule.

Having enjoyed the new outdoor living space for several months now, we have been delighted in our decision to choose CDF.  We have also seen CDFs commitment to ensure that any issues that arise post completion are addressed quickly, without discussion or additional charges.

Our confidence in CDF is so high that we have already placed another order on them to replace an existing, smaller deck and have no hesitation recommending CDF to friends, family and neighbors.

“ Robert Shaw and the Colorado Deck and Framing crew did an outstanding job replacing
my wooden deck with a maintenance free composite one with steel joists. Robert worked collaboratively with us to pick out materials and colors, astutely guiding us away from making decisions we would have regretted. We recommend Colorado Deck and Framing without reservation.”

After working with Robert Shaw and his crews at Colorado Deck and Framing, I would

recommend them to anyone in the market for a high-quality outdoor living space. Robert is extremely knowledgeable on the products he uses, the local building codes, and the many options available for outdoor living.

From beginning to end, Robert and his crew were committed to getting the job done with excellence, professionalism, and integrity. He was always available for questions and concerns. I am extremely pleased with the end product I received and would pass along Robert’s information to anyone I know.

This is to serve as a letter of recommendation for Mr Robert Shaw of Colorado Deck and Framing.  Mr Shaw and his company worked with my design and built a custom deck that wraps around the corner and side of my house at (removed address).  We found him and his company to be professional, neat, timely, and had the proper attention to building codes and site inspections.  They constructed the deck out of a mixture of materials including metal joists, composite decking, and cedar trim and produced a very sturdy and attractive product.  We are very pleased with our deck and have recommended him and his company to friends.
