Our commitment to quality workmanship and customer satisfaction is second to none!
Our clients mean the world to us! Your gracious word of mouth support has allowed us to avoid some of the aggressive marketing strategies of other companies depend on. We at EV Decks and Gazebos understand how important an investment any addition to your home is. We provide all potential clients with names and phone numbers of other clients to use as a reference in making their decision.
“We researched and interviewed several other contractors before choosing EV Deck and Gazebos. Esteban stood out from the others because he took the time to listen to what we wanted rather than taking a look at our patio and then telling us what we were going to get. He was able to incorporate most of our ideas into a fresh design, and when he couldn’t do it, he explained clearly the technical reason why. He also provided some excellent suggestions to solve the problem of incorporating extra seating around our spa. Esteban provided references from local and recent projects, and even took us to visit a completed deck in the style we were considering. We were impressed by the quality workmanship and the positive relationship he had with his client(s).
Other standout qualities include Esteban’s strong work ethic and flexibility regarding the materials used. It is his practice to use the best quality wood available, but on top of that he honored our request to inspect each piece and choose those with the least amount of knots in them. Yes, we were picky clients but a previous experience with poor workmanship on a deck taught us to insist on best practices, such as using wood screws instead of nails. Esteban always responded in a professional manner and followed through on every request.
We found Esteban’s prices to be competitive and the quality of his workmanship far above average. He personally supervised his team, showed up on time, and treated our property with respect. The crew actually finished the deck ahead of schedule. We have enjoyed our deck for 4 months without any problems. Esteban just completed the recommended second layer of stain this past week with the same quality of workmanship and professionalism. We are extremely pleased with the work EV Decks and Spa has performed for us and we enthusiastically endorse Esteban and his crew. “

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank EV Decks and Gaszebos for the work that they did for us in The Woodlands. A year ago Esteban and his remarkable crew built an arbor in our backyard that has turned our otherwise uninviting patio into an Oasis! His ideas and craftsmanship are not to be beat.
We had recently relandscaped around our pool and added new flagstone but were stuck on how we would utilize our very hot and sunny patio. Esteban came to our rescue. We now enjoy our covered outdoor eating and sitting areas with painted cedar , lights & ceiling fans in any kind of weather.
I could not possibly recommend EV Decks and Esteban any higher! His prices are reasonable and his work ethic, punctuality and “getting the job done” attitude made working with him a joy! Thanks Esteban!”

“We are pleased to write this letter of recommendation for the superior job you accomplished at our home in Bentwater. As you may recall the backyard was only dirt for two months as a result of construction material delays due to hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Therefore we were able to see you build most of your work using excellent skills and judgement.
There were (4) four phases of landscaping with your part being first. We started with “two section trellises” on both sides of the back yard. Then you built the “shade arbor with cover” which extended our patio on the left side of the house (your workmanship was just great). Next came the eight foot deck by bulkhead where you created a pretty design in the wood as well as adding two benches on either side of the deck for viewing the water (great idea too). Then we decided to add two smaller trellises on both sides of the back yard to add further privacy. Finally, we designed a “mini arbor” to the left of the south west kitchen patio – again for privacy and for visual effect.
Again, your imagination and expert craftsmanship were far better than any picture we could have provided.
Now that the full landscaping has been completeded to include the waterfall, pond with Koi fish, paved stone decking and lighted steps going down to the deck, we feel we truly have a “showpiece backyard” with a great waterfront view!!!!!!
Please feel free to have any perspective customers call us or you are welcome to have anyone stop by and see the quality of your workmanship first hand. As you know we would need to confirm any visitor first by clearing at the front gate. Congratulations on a job well done.”

“Esteban has done work for us before so we had no hesitation when deciding to have him build our deck. We knew he would provide quality work at an affordable price.
Esteban is very professional, easy to work with, and listens to what you want. He started our deck as planned and worked only on our job until it was completed. We could not be happier with the results. It exceeded our expectations.”

“Esteban built an arbor for us and we couldn’t be more pleased. We recieved three other quotes for the same arbor style and Esteban’s price was not only within our budget, but the quality and design was much more.
He was punctual, offered suggestions that added to the quality of the design, and his craftsmanship went beyond our expectations. We highly recommend Esteban to build your arbor or any other wood related project. If you would like to contact us for more information you may do so.”

“Thanks for the excellent quality work on our deck cover. The deck looks great. I was especially pleased with the speed which the crew completed the job and the way the work area was kept clean during the construction.
Chris and I can now watch the backyard birds and butterflies from the comfort of the shaded deck cover. We would be pleased for others to check it out if they are considering a deck cover.”
“We contracted Esteban Velez in August 2008 to transform our backyard and create a decking area that would allow us to enjoy the outdoor area and entertain. Esteban provided us with creative ideas that both created the environment we were looking for but at the same time provided a lot of additional ideas as to how best to utilize the space.
In terms of the actual project we couldn’t have been more thrilled with the attention to detail and Esteban’s timeliness and thorough professionalism.
Esteban was able to take our ideas, complement them with his own experience and create for us a patio area that has transformed our outdoor living experience.
We would recommend Esteban to anyone seeking high quality, professional and timely project completion.”

“I contracted with Esteban Velez, Esteban Decks and Gazebos, to build a deck on our playground in July, 2007. I was very pleased with the high level of professionalism that I experienced with Mr. Velez. He listend to my requests and decking needs and then offered some great suggestions for improvements. They were prompt and followed through with scheduling. Work was done quickly and thoroughly.
Their attention to design detail is extraordinary. Mr. Velez was very careful in planning and building to be sure that the deck would be safe for children. The finished product is a beautiful deck that will be used for many years to come.”

“I am very pleased to be writing this letter of recommendation for Esteban Velez, owner of EV Decks and Gazebos. Esteban built a beautiful gazebo and deck for us at our home in Magnolia. First of all, his bid was very reasonable and in line with other bids. The difference was the final product. There were no blocks used. All posts were dug deep into the ground and cemented. This made for an extremely sturdy structure; not to speak of the beauty of the finished products. Esteban is truly an artist. The gazebo was way beyond my expectations. He and his crew were friendly and hard working. Between his artistry and the craftsmanship of his crew, they created structures to be proud of. We get many positive comments from neighbors and visitors. I highly recommend Esteban for any job you might be contemplating. My wife and I are extremely pleased and will certainly call him for future projects.”
“I’d like to share with prospective customers how satisfied we are with the results of choosing EV Decks and Gazebos. Upon initially contacting Esteban for a quote, he not only answered his phone, but made himself available the next day for our consultation which makes a good impression when selecting a contractor. He even came back several times to help review and answer questions. The scope of our project entailed demolition and reconstruction of a 1600sqft deck on the back of our home. The work progressed at an impressive rate considering the size of the job and completed sooner than anticipated. The EV Decks work crew were very courteous and professional. Their exceptional quality of work is quite obvious, so I strongly recommend choosing EV Decks and Gazebos for any project.”
“Esteban and his team built an incredible cover for our new patio and pool area. Throughout the process, from initial design meetings, to quote, through build and completion – Esteban and his crew were always punctual, professional, and a pleasure to be around. He also worked very well with our pool builder to ensure that the pool and patio cover were completed on time and their work was coordinated as to not “step on each others toes”. The area that our patio cover was planned to go required a creative design, and Esteban provide that along with having a great eye for detail. He suggested several different ideas that really “completed” the look.
We love our new pool, but our family and friends have remarked several times to each other how the having the covered area is far and away the best part of our backyard makeover. Thanks to Esteban and his team, we would (and have) highly recommend him to others.”

“We have lived in our house 4 years and finally decided it was time to put in a summer kitchen. We noticed that EV Decks and Gazebos had done work on several of our neighbor’s houses and we contacted Esteban for a bid. After comparing his bid to other bids, we chose EV Decks and Gazebos based on the price and time frame estimated for completing the project. During the entire project, Esteban was available by phone and email and kept us informed. His crew was on site on-time and worked hard throughout the day. Esteban was patient and worked with us on changes that we made along the way. His recommendations and attention to details were very much appreciated. He went above and beyond the scope of the project. We would recommend EV Decks and Gazebos to friends.”

“In July 2010, Esteban built a beautiful deck and swing with an arbor for our backyard and we could not be more pleased with the work and craftsmanship put into the project. From the very beginning, my husband and I were impressed with Esteban’s work ethic and efficiency. He was always prompt in returning phone calls, e-mails, or texts and was very helpful as we decided on what we wanted for our backyard renovation. It is very evident that Esteban takes great pride in his work and has a keen eye for detail. His work crew was courteous, neat, and on time each day for the duration of the project and Esteban was right there with them the whole time working. We have been so happy with our deck and swing and we look forward to having him do more work for us in the future. I have and will continue to recommend him for any outdoor woodworking project.”

“We would highly recommend Esteban if you are considering building a deck, covered patio or gazebo. He is creative, dependable, honest and insists that every single detail is correct. He is on site working with his crew every day. Esteban wants your finished product to be exactly what you want and it is important to him that your creation fit in with the look of your home. Not only did he go out with me to see a stain color I wanted on the ceiling of our covered patio, he also recommended that he meet me at Lowe’s, and he and the sales associate stained several wood samples right there in the store, gradually adjusting the stain color until it was exactly the shade I wanted. My father, a retired industrial arts and
woodworking teacher,”checked out” the covered patio Esteban built for us and declared it perfect, A+ work.
We have had several people stop when driving by and ask to see our covered patio. We love it, thank you so much for building us such a wonderful outdoor living area, Esteban!”
