My husband and I did a fair amount of research in order to find a local contractor that could replace our aging, second story deck. There were some challenges with the project including the old deck partially covering our septic system and requiring a design that would suit our needs. This included a dry deck since it covered the first floor patio, composite decking for low maintenance and the sheer size (500-600 sq ft). I found Adam and Laura's company, Zia Construction during the search and from the get-go, their communication was timely and detailed. This was one reason why we chose them as our deck contractor as we had a million questions. Besides purchasing a home, the deck replacement was the largest home-related purchased for us at the time and we understood that given the scope of the project, it would be costly from the size and choice of materials, alone. We did end up over budget due to some unforeseen costs for additional needed materials but I think the end product was worth it.
Zia offered a comprehensive quote that was competitive with other vendors but also took the task of communicating with the City of Kent Building and Planning office for us which helped put our minds at ease. The less we had to worry about the better given that we are typically hands-on, hovering types.
The project took several months to complete: the permit process took a little longer than expected due to volume, our contractor was out of town for a bit and some of our materials were on back order. Despite this, the work itself seem to go quickly with the team getting the inspections passed just as quickly. Given the stringent city requirements, this is a testament to how well-received Zia's work was by the city reps. Throughout this process, Adam maintained excellent communication with us, including weekends and we looked forward to each day's progress. My mother who lives with us was impressed with how polite and professional his team was as well. The end project is an impressive 550+ sq ft 2nd story dry deck made from quality composite decking and railing that we can't wait to enjoy and entertain on with our family and friends.We would readily recommend Zia Construction to anyone looking for a contractor for their upcoming projects. They are professional, competitively priced and very nice making them a joy to work with.Read More
Final project turned out beautiful! We had a few ideals on what we wanted for the new deck. Adam was able to answer all our questions and make recommendations based of what we needed. I would highly recommend Zia Construction because of the quality of work, aesthetic design and professionalism.Read More
We had a really bad experience with a previous contractor. Adam was very patient with us because we had a lot of questions, interviewed past clients and other due diligence. Our deck project was almost 1200 square feet. There was a lot of detail in some corners, beautiful fanned out stairs and custom bench. The deck also was not connected to the house which added additional research and stabilization. There was also additional reinforcement for our hot tub. Adam took care of the permitting process for a reasonable price. He and his crew seemed like great people. We have young kids. Adam and his crew were respectful of our property and kept the construction site clean. We highly recommend Zia Construction.Read More
We had a really great experience with Zia building our deck. They started the construction right away after we had the green light to start building and they worked weekends and evenings to get it built on schedule. They took great care in making sure our deck was what we wanted. My husband is very OCD so he checked all the details and it exceeded his standards. I also appreciated how accommodating they were with our requests. One of them was to have an opportunity to put our initials on the cement at the bottom of the steps which they did as soon as they laid down the cement.Read More
I was referred to Zia from a friend from work. I was looking to have a covered patio built so we could relax outside in the winter months. They were on time and within budget. I appreciated the responsiveness of my messages. I would hire them again.Read More
Adam and his team earn the 5 stars as they check all of my boxes. Quality work. Stay on task. Non smokers. Good Value. A pleasure to work with. Flexible and suggested changes with reasonable cost. We had them demo and rebuild a 800 sq. ft. deck and also a roof overhang that was damaged by a falling tree. The project was started in January and they even worked when it was raining and snowing. Very dedicated people who care about what you want.Read More
