We are delighted to highly recommend Barrett Outdoors. Their workmanship, professionalism and customer service all get 5+ stars from us. Just yesterday my neighbor, seeing our new deck for the first time said, “This is the most beautiful deck I’ve ever seen—really!” And it is, indeed. Of course there were delays due to COVID, but Barrett kept us informed throughout, apologizing even though the situation was not their fault. Our fabulous deck was so well worth waiting for, and we are most grateful to them.

We are more than thrilled with how our backyard has turned out!! We were not sure exactly what we wanted at first but Gustavo and his team guided us to help to transform our backyard into a wonderful and beautiful space where we can now spend more time as a family and to be able to utilize our backyard to bbq, relax, hang out at the fire-pit, and relax under our new deck &b patio! Carlos and his crew were all wonderful and very helpful. They are masters of their craft! We would recommend Barrett Outdoors for anyone who needs work done and wants exceptional work ethics and craftsmanship!

Barrett Outdoors recently built a new Trex deck and a side entrance stairway for us. From the initial planning phase with Gustavo and office staff and Augustin and his crew executing on the project plan, the Barrett Outdoors team was extremely professional and pleasant to work with. They were easy to get in touch with whenever we had any questions about our project, which consisted of demolishing the existing structures and constructing new ones in their place. Barrett worked within the budget we gave them and met all established deadlines to give us a beautiful new entertaining space and stairs we were seeing. We highly recommend them!

Barrett was one of the best service companies I have dealt with. I had originally gone to the Trex website and vetted a few companies they recommended. The presentation and approach Gustavo made was clearly the best but you still never know. I clearly made the right decision. Gustavo was always straightforward, professional, and yet open to all ideas and decisions I made. The carpenters, Wilson and Carlos, were both masters. They moved carefully and always though out any possible problems. The results were spectacular. The items we added such as island, granite, grill, refrigerator, and cabinets were all great. We also collaborated on gates that turned out great. That said, I would recommend them to anyone and would absolutely use them in the future

While Barrett is more expensive than other deck contractors, the quality of our deck made the cost worth it. I was particularly happy with the details and care taken on the portions of the deck that don’t show. Extra care was taken on the framing to assure that the deck surface was perfectly level and the railing was strong. The initial design meeting was also excellent. Sharing ideas, getting suggestions and discussing options helped greatly in getting the best deck possible. We are very happy with our new deck.

Barrett Contracting designed and built one great looking deck. They paid attention to detail and quality throughout the job. I was so impressed with the work I canceled my contract with a paver company that I have always used to hire Gus and his company. And the work performed was beautiful. The project from the start to the end was great. Quality and construction were great. And always very professional. Would hire Gus and Barrett Contracting in a second for another project.

Both Rick and Gus are very professional and pleasant to work with. We extremely liked their presentation and computer images which make choosing your design that much easier. Without Rick’s 3D imaging and design expertise, we would have ended up with a basic deck; now however, it looks stunning and we received many compliments. The crew is professional and pleasant to have around.
