About the Deckman
During the early 1980's I was building decks on a large condo project. As I became increasingly efficient, I found I could construct them for less and still earn a decent wage. My fellow tradesmen were impressed with my deck expertise and began calling me "the deck man" So, as my reputation grew, I was given more and more decks to do and the name "The Deck Man" stuck.
Well, 25 years later, I'm still the deck man. During the 80's, I expanded the Deck Man to include a warehouse and 15 employees. But, the days of mass production are long gone, and over the years I have chosen to reduce the volume and focus on the quality of my work. I realized what I do best, and what I like most. For example, the one to one personal relationship that develops as I work for a customer, and the feeling of trust and mutual respect that exists after a job is completed as planned.
As a result of two and a half decades of deck construction the jobs flow smoothly, and the goal of 100% customer satisfaction is an everyday reality. My mission is to provide friendly, trustworthy service that people deserve. I get an additional reward at the end of the job when we're shaking hands, and I know my customers are really happy with my workmanship, I can see it in their faces. I've also made friends, we've laughed and joked together, had conversations about life. That good feeling we're left with is about more than just the project, it is what makes the job so worthwhile.
Most days I'm on the road early, the coffee is hot, the muffins are warm, I have the road to myself, my work place is Cape Cod, a unique island that people dream of retiring to, or work hard just to visit....then it hits me..."I'm the deck man" ……what could be better...
