Customer testimonials

These reviews were taken from Angies List:

Kellen had a book of recent jobs, and I liked a little of this one, a little of that one, a little of another, but couldn't really picture what I wanted - what a troublesome client I must have been!  He came up with a very good idea, with a pergola and some built in benches...and a couple of other very good ideas that my husband didn't want to  because they would change his grilling area.  Kellen then came up with a variation of those latter ideas that gave us just a little bit of more deck space but a lot more "interest"....then a week after it was all done, he came back to say HE wasn't happy with the paint scheme, and he suggested something else, which I also liked better and he re did it right away. The pictures are on his website and show you the finished product.  Look for a job in 2012 that has the word "pergola" in it.

All of the ladies at the shower raved about it. It is exactly what I wanted.  I have had the guys back once to do the recommended maintenance and was very happy with that too.  They are prompt, detail oriented, FAST....I couldn't believe how hard all the guys worked.    I am about to rehire Kellen to work on our front metal railings now."

"We were very happy with Kellen. He's one of the few home maintenance people I've met who actually returns calls quickly and shows up on time. We had a large redwood deck covered with some crappy sealant that was flaking off all over. After sanding, acid washing, and staining, the deck looks beautiful. They worked hard and finished the whole job in a few days, with meticulous attention to detail (Kellen personally hand sanded around all the beams/doors/fireplace. We will use this company again for ongoing maintenance. (FYI, despite the company name, they will work in SLC)."

"Kellen, with Deck Stylists, came and evaluated our deck and took measurements of the total area to be restored.  In addition, we decided that we no longer wanted a 6.5' X 6.5' hot tub that was on the deck and he made arrangements to safely remove it so that it could be enjoyed by another family.  Removing this hot tub was no small feat as the deck railing had to be removed and there was a 8' drop from the edge of the deck to the ground below.  

We received his itemized estimate, and the work began within that week.  It was completed in another week.  Our restoration project included total sanding and staining of the existing deck floor, replacing old wood under the hot tub; sanding/painting the deck railing; sanding/staining/painting the deck planters; & sanding/staining/painting the built-in deck seating.

Kellen was extremely prompt in responding to my phone call inquiring about their services. He came to our home, evaluated our deck and the scope of services necessary to get it back to it's original beauty. Honestly my husband and I were torn between restoring a 10-year old deck or replacing it with one made of the synthetic decking products, but after meeting with Kellen, the choice was clear- restore. We have a huge cedar deck and the cost to restore the existing deck was a fraction of what a new synthetic deck would have been, and in the end, NOTHING compares to the natural beauty of wood!

Throughout the entire process Kellen and his team of craftmen were punctual, totally professional and really nice. We have dogs and they were always very careful to secure the gate area to ensure that we did not have any four-legged escapes!  

In addition to the initial deck restoration, Deck Stylists offer deck cleaning & maintenance programs- for which we have already signed up!  These programs offer very affordable services to keep our deck looking great- and the best part... my husband doesn't have to spend his weekends working on it!"

"We had used this provider to refinish and expand a wooden deck and add benches and pergola, in the past.  We were pleased to find out they could fix our sad, rusty railings too.  Kellen gave us a bid quickly, and we were astounded at what seemed like a very low price.  They set a date, and delivered quickly and well, skipping only one day of work, by mutual agreement since it was wet and windy.  We are very pleased, and would recommend them highly.

I can't speak highly enough of Deck Stylists, LLC. They provided a well-detailed and reasonable bid, were flexible and accommodating, clean and well-organized, communicated well with us about our job and 
were punctual. I'm glad to say I hope they stay in business for years to come as I hope they will help us maintain the deck in its now beautifully-restored condition with their biennial service. Thanks a bunch!!!

Here are a couple of emails we have recieved:

“We have long struggled with the look and maintenance of our decks (we have four), as well as our patio swing and playground set.  After considering various options, we decided to work with Deck Stylists and, now that the work is finished, are extremely pleased.  Deck Stylists (Kellen and his team) were timely, professional, communicative, and able to promptly address project-specific issues and changes that arose during the course of the work.  Most importantly, even with the requested changes, they completed the work on schedule (as promised), and the results are great - the decks look amazing and, if we didn’t know better, appear to be brand new.  We look forward to having Deck Stylists continue to maintain our decks in the coming years.”

"HI Kellen,

If you want to use the following, please feel free.


Our decks are better than brand new! Our only regret is that we waited so long to do this. After 18 years of south and west exposure to sun, rain and snow, I was certain there was no hope for them and we would have to replace everything. Our decks (all 5 of them) now look brand new! Even the pickets look great. Thanks PC Decks!


Everyday I see the decks I am so happy you were able to squeeze us in before the snow started. Thanks again. Some of the best money I have ever spent."
