"This is long overdue recognition of the deck you built for us last year. Bill,
we remember with pleasure how easy you were to work with. You were
friendly, polite, showed up on time, definitely have great carpentry skills,
didn't let the county's obstacles throw you. Best of all you came in under
budget even with unanticipated extras."
"We are still very pleased by the design and cleanness of the lines. We
recently had some guests over who remarked on how nice it looked.
They liked how the seams lined up, the railing and the stairs."
"Thank you very much for a job well done."
Diane & Doug, Montecito, CA
"I could not be more pleased with my new deck. Bill was extremely professional, on time and on budget, gave great
design advance, and far exceeded my expectations. Bill is a true craftsman who went above and beyond, transforming
a complicated sloping surface into a useful and beautiful extension of my living room."
Raymond & Jill, Santa Barbara, CA
"We contacted Bill Bolton of DeckCreations to give us a proposal for recovering our balcony deck in Ipe hardwood. The bid we received was very reasonable,
seemed well thought out, and compared favorably with others we had received, so a few weeks later we proceeded with the project. We were extremely happy with
how the project evolved. First, Bill is a careful and considerate worker who plans well, so the project never felt intrusive or over extended in time, and was
efficient in the use of materials. He was also very mindful of safety and maintained a tidy work area. Then, shortly after starting, we discovered greater
damage to the underlying structure from dry rot than we had anticipated. This revealed Bill's can-do attitude as he quickly and willingly diverted his
effort to make the needed structural repairs before completing the planned work. These were done with techniques and materials that will enhance the
longevity of the structure. The result is we have a deck far more beautiful than the original, and a sense of confidence in its structural soundness
for years to come. The overall experience was so satisfactory that it really exceeded our expectations."
Peter & Lynne, Santa Barbara, CA
"Our new decks are simply beautiful….Thank you! Bill Bolton owner of DeckCreations designed and built two decks for us of Ipe wood.
The end product far exceeded our expectations in built quality and appearance. The Ipe’s rich golden color and precision installation
reminds me of a fine yacht’s deck. Also, Bill was a pleasure to work with. He is an old school master craftsman and extremely professional.
I would recommend DeckCreations without hesitation (in fact, he was referred to us by our neighbor)."
Gino & Sharon, Santa Barbara, CA
"Working with DeckCreations was a great experience. The work was done on time, cleanly and with a minimum of disruption
and mess. DeckCreations was one of several contractors we contacted. They were by far the most professional in handling the
inquiry and the bid was reasonable. We made some minor changes as we went along and they did not use that as an excuse to pad
the bid. I would recommend them without reservation."
Chris, Santa Barbara, CA
"Bill, thanks once again for the excellent job. As you must be aware of by now, I
take a great interest in how people do things. You are as proficient in your field of
expertise as anyone could possibly expect."
Harold, Santa Barbara, CA
"Bill Bolton of DeckCreations recently finished building stairs off of our deck and not only was it
a pleasure to work with him, the stairs exceeded our expectations in quality and how they looked.
After doing a remodel on our house, I have come to realize it is hard to find someone who will
start and finish a project when they say they will and also finish at the same price they quoted.
Bill did just that!"
Dan and Meg, Santa Barbara, CA
"Bill, thank you for our beautiful deck! Our living space is expanded beautifully and we spend so much more time outdoors now. We appreciate your professionalism, honesty and attention to detail. We loved that you gave us a selection of decking materials to choose from and are glad we chose the Ipe that you suggested. Thanks again, we'll be enjoying it for years to come!!"
Elizabeth, Santa Barbara, CA
"Working with Bill was great! He completed our deck quickly and with very little disruption to our everyday lives. Every time we step out onto our deck we feel grateful to Bill and his craftsmanship. It looks as great as the day he put it in! (Almost two years ago now.) If we ever get a chance to add onto to our existing deck, we'll definitely call Bill again! Thanks Bill!"
Kaye and Marc, Santa Barbara, CA
"Bill has an innate gift in designing decks that flow. His attention to detail, craftsmanship and quality become even more evident over time. We highly recommend DeckCreations."
Andrew, Santa Barbara, CA
"I am pleased to add my name to your list of satisfied customers. Bill dismantled and rebuilt the decking surrounding our hot tub with total professionalism and in a very timely manner. And he showed great patience towards me as I asked a million questions. I was fascinated how he did the job and I think in my past life I was a carpenter not a banker. The project was 18 months ago and it still looks like new. I was extremely pleased with his work, the cleanup and his pleasant demeanor."
Dick, Santa Barbara, CA
"What a great way to design your own deck and get someone else to build it. Bill's help was irreplaceable."
Linus, Santa Barbara, CA
"Bill Bolton of DeckCreations constructed a handsome redwood deck for my hot tub and outdoor shower here in the Santa Barbara foothills. His design and workmanship are superb! Having a sundowner while soaking away is even nicer now."
Edna, Santa Barbara, CA
"We could not have been happier with our new 690 ft. deck! Bill did an outstanding job. The whole job went without a hitch, and Bill took the time to discuss all of our options along the way. Finding outstanding customer service is getting harder and harder these days, with DeckCreations and Bill Bolton you will get excellent service and craftsmanship! Thanks again Bill!"
Rob, Goleta, CA
"Could not have imagined how smoothly we could get our deck rebuilt the right way. Your communication, hard work and knowledge made all the difference. Thanks again."
Patrick & Mujiba, Santa Barbara, CA
"Just want to thank you again for that wonderful pergola you built for us. We are enjoying it so much and love the shade it adds to our yard. We appreciate that it is so sturdy and well built, as well as attractive. We know we will be enjoying it for many years to come. Thanks again for a job well done."
Ray & Laura, Montecito, CA
"Our original deck was 20 years old, rotting out and basically not useable. After meeting with Bill Bolton of DeckCreations, having him give us an estimate and speaking with several references all of which were very pleased with his work, we had Bill build us a new deck.
Bill is very knowledgeable of deck construction and he helped us finalize the design and select appropriate materials. He always conducted himself very professionally, met all time commitments, kept us informed of his progress and made good suggestions when options occurred.
We are very pleased with our new deck. It will provide us years of safe enjoyment and we would highly recommend Bill Bolton to anyone desiring a quality deck."
Steve & Carlene, Santa Barbara, CA
"Bill works by himself, so you get the benefit of his skills and attention. He considers the hidden, structural details that are so critical. Bill listened to our preferences, and then brought his creativity and expertise with composite materials to the job. He constructed a finished product that we enjoy."
Martin & Kate, Santa Barbara, CA
"After 23 years, it was time to replace the deck that stretched out over the front of my 50 year-old Mesa home. The deck presented many challenges. It was huge, spanning over 1500 square feet. It is highly visible from inside the home, from my immediate yard, and to the 12 other homeowners that live on my street. Because of its size and location it gets drenched with water when it rains and bakes in the sun the rest of year. The size of the deck was daunting in terms of cost, decorating, and maintenance.
I had the good fortune to meet Bill Bolton and work with him in designing a deck that was smaller and design-wise a much better fit with my home. We spent a good deal of time talking about the redesign of the deck and eventually came up with a simple, but elegant design that is more suited to breaking the deck up into usable, functional spaces without any sacrifice of the panoramic ocean view.
Bill was exceptionally knowledgeable regarding decking materials and systems. Without pushing me towards any one product, he was able to lay out the pros and cons of various products. In the end, we selected Ipe, a Brasilian hardwood because of its beauty, hardness, resistance to termites and resistance to fire.
Bill did all the work himself. It was a real joy to arrive home everyday and see the progress on this important project. He built this deck like he was building it for his own home. And, he left the worksite organized and clean each day.
The deck on my home is a real enhancement. Its clean, sleek lines add to the ambiance of having a view home. No home improvement project has ever exceeded my expectations the way this one has including planning, design, materials, and workmanship. I would highly recommend Bill Bolton and his company, DeckCreations, to anyone who is contemplating adding or remodeling an outdoor deck."
Carla, Santa Barbara, CA
"It was a pleasure working with Bill Bolton on the planning and creation of our new IPE deck. Bill offered a number of good ideas for improving our previous redwood deck, but was open to incorporating our own ideas as well. We were particularly pleased with Bill's attention to detail, including the structural construction of the deck.
We are looking forward to many years of enjoyment of our new deck, thanks to Bill."
Still and Nancy, Santa Barbara, CA
"Bill, thank you for my deck, it’s beautiful. Everyone that comes over to my house I have to take them up to see my deck. Everyone who sees it thinks you did an outstanding job. Every detail is taken care of. You also gave me ideas that I hadn’t thought of and I am so glad that you did my deck.
You also said something that really stood out in my mind. You said it was your deck until finished and then it was mine. Such pride in your work shows and I am very proud of my deck. Thank you, thank you".
Jeanne, Santa Barbara, CA
“I am thrilled with my new deck. Bill helped me figure out the best plan to replace my old rotting one, from materials to design. The workmanship is gorgeous. The deck greatly expanded our living space and is a wonderful addition to our home. Working with Bill was completely painless! All the work progressed just as he said, none of those contractor nightmare stories. I whole heartedly recommend Bill for any deck project you may have.”
Ann, Goleta, CA
“Bill...Pegeen and I want to thank-you for creating a beautiful deck off of our master bedroom. There were many steps involved to go from our 17 year old deck in unsafe shape to what we have now. You helped us through the project and made it easy. The whole process took less time than we thought, but also was at a pace where design decisions weren’t rushed but thought through carefully. Not only does the finished deck look beautiful, the structure beneath it is also done the way it should be to last a lifetime. We highly recommend you to anyone who is interested in getting a top quality deck added to their home.”
Kevin & Pegeen, Santa Barbara, CA
“Bill Bolton is the consummate professional. He is very easy to work with, friendly, and does beautiful, immaculate work. The deck he created for us is virtually a work of art, and the cost was very reasonable. I would enthusiastically recommend his services to anyone considering adding a deck to their home.”
Greg, Santa Barbara, CA
“Bill Bolton helped me create what I wanted my deck to look like. He then built it with such integrity. There was never any mess to look at, he cleaned up daily and the deck is lovely. Bill was also willing to do what had to be done to correct old mistakes and make my deck safe, secure and beautiful for years to come. I would recommend DeckCreations to anyone with do doubts about the quality of the workmanship and satisfaction.”
Lynn, Santa Barbara, CA
"Thanks for the great job on our deck. I know this will give us many years of enjoyment. You exemplify what it is to be a true craftsman."
