Awesome Carpentry, Awesome Sales guy, horrible experience with hot tub not fitting, stain poorly done the first time, second time by Victor only lasted six months, we give up. This is very sad because if the owner would have better control over his carpenters and their tardiness/starting late. We had a bad experience with the Forman but he corrected it and apologized and I think we just got off on the wrong foot and he was frustrated as well. I would hope that this company would have learned a valuable lesson last year because I believe it could survive from all this with better customer service and better control of their subcontractors (carpenters). Would I recommend them? Yes, but I would ask alot of questions about all that you read here. we have a beautiful deck, horribly stained, gazebo roof expertly done, fine carpentry but a very painful slow process and we tried to be as patient as possible. I hope they succeed on their skills of carpentry and design and clean up their customer service. We are going to have to redo the entire deck ourselves now for a third time because of bad staining that we paid FOR!!! Good Luck and Please give good customer service, you will survive if you do!

THIS COMPANY WILL RIP YOU OFF.
Under training, they make you a promise that you will suceed based on their past performances. However, after reading the online complaints they are really a scam.
The Owner RICK. Stands overly confident that he is versed in all aspects of sales, but the fact is he is a good information provider, but lacks in integrity, principles. I was promised a 3 day training based on my experience. and a guaranteed salary of $500 until they get me going. However, after I began I spent the first day role playing which is the learning process of doing a home visit. I cold tell that by the process he didn't know what he would say next and did it by the seat of his pants. I felt that he spoke only to hear himself talk. Or because he liked the sound of his own voice. The manager in training who was the other expert didn't know anything either. So we spent the day at the training manager's home doing a training demo. My total time investment for this day was 7 hours.
The next day the Owner RICK told me to run a one leg, a customer whose home was valued at under $35,000 in the east side, which was in disrepair, run down, and on a fixed income. She could not afford the service, price or product. I was told to do a dog and pony show, meaning lets walk around the home "ACTING LIKE WE WERE DOING SOMETHING" then go back inside and tell the home owner that she was fine and did not need our services. The manager at the time offered no information, I did the work meaning, that I actually tried to find issues wrong with her home. What was the point? After speaking with her we found that she wasn't in the ,market for anything just wanted the free light bulbs.
The same day we also ran a lead of a home owner that the other part ot the ownership Wasn't there, so why waste my time. The Point is that these Clowns claimto have the pulse of sales, when the fact is after speaking to the other sales people have not the pulse but are comatose themselves. Unprepared, Under trained, and unethical. They make promises they do not keep. After I finished my training which was told to me that it would be 3 days. I decided that This company wasn't for me. They waste your time, do not pay what they promise. And under pay, Their commissions are a joke. If you wanta company to do good work for you as a consumer then DO NOT USE THESE GUYS. As a salesperson, be prepared to get the run around. they do nt pay you what they promise. They offer less than competative salaries, and are just basically...LIARS. RICK is the biggest loser of all. He will make it all seem great but if you are experienced enough to see through hi BS you will see he LIES, CHEATS numbers, salaries. And is more focused on making his store front seem like a ligitimate business. When in fact they are a bunch of CROOKS, LIARS< CHEAP LABOR< CHEAP And do not keep promises.

Paradise Decks & Spas built our new deck. After reading some of the reviews, needless to say, I was cautious. We had Kent and Kyle come out and give us an estimate on our deck. We were very impressed with the sketches and the price and signed the contract on the spot. They then told us Jaime would be calling to set up a time for Chris, the construction manager, to come out to do some final measurements. Jaime called right when Kent and Kyle said she would and Chris showed up right when Jaime said he would. So far... so good! Then Chris told me the deck builder would be out on Monday, Feb 28th to start the deck. Feb 28th came and there he was, Derrick was on the job! Derrick worked diligently on the deck every single minute that he was here. He was here all week (with help) and only took a lunch break (for 20 mins) on ONE day. I was extremely impressed with his work ethic but felt bad because he had to be starving, working sun up to sun down! But, a break he wouldn't take. Once the deck was finished, my husband and I were REALLY impressed. His work is amazing! The deck turned out 100 times better than we had imagined it would. We thanked him over and over again for his hard work and he seemed to genuinely appreciate it. After that, Derrick told us Chris would be calling on Monday to set up a time for a walk thru. Chris called on Monday, and a walk thru was done later on.

We are extremely pleased with Paradise Decks & Spas. They were complete professionals and really paid attention to customer service. We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone wanting to add a deck on to their home.

Saying Paradise Decks and Spas is incompetent is a tremendous understatement in my experience. I characterize their work as one delay after another followed by a string of unfulfilled promises. Their work was unskilled and careless in my opinion. The time spent on the phone dealing with the various problems I experienced with Paradise, along with the multiple delays, was significant and should be figured into your quote. I would recommend that you have your lawyers draw up a contract for them to sign rather than signing theirs if you must work with them. To their credit, Paradise loves to apologize and promise they will rectify their poor work. Unfortunately words are much more easily delivered than a final product. I would not recommend Paradise Decks and Spas. Consider yourself warned.

One other point ?? notice the pattern in the reviews posted on this site. Aside from other obvious flags, the first three beginning 10/02/08 are all negative and spaced far apart. Then out of nowhere you get five great reviews on the same day and a sixth three days later. Looks like the employees are trying to make up for the poor reviews. This is not surprising to me after dealing with Paradise.

I have been most pleased with my outdoor kitchen and deck from Paradise. The salespeople and the workers were very knowledgeable and professional, and were very clear with me throughout the process of building my "oasis". I did get bids from several companies before deciding to go with Paradise, and while one or two of the bids were "cheaper", I also believe that the work would not have been as good. The old saying "you get what you pay for" is true! I am thrilled and looking forward to spending a lot of time entertaining friends and family in my new area. I would highly recommend Paradise for any decking/and outdoor work. They are the BEST!!

We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the entire team at Paradise for a job well done especially considering the circumstances that brought them to our home. We had a very negative experience with another company here in town that left us with an unsightly deck with structural defects and code violations. After vigorous attempts to resolve these issues we were referred to Paradise. We found all of the interactions with Paradise to be the epitome of professionalism. The installers went above and beyond to build our deck and patio to ensure our complete and total satisfaction. Thanks to Paradise we now have a deck and patio that we can enjoy and are proud of.

Wanted to share how happy we are. From the personally performed consultation, taking into account our budget, our vision of what we wanted, to your lifetime guarantee as long as we owned the home and stained/sealed it with the specific stain you reccommended. I was amazed with this guarantee... no one else could come close to matching it. The builders were awesome, courteous, and kept me informed through the whole process. Not only did you build the deck but also a pondless waterfall that sounds and looks just like I always wanted. I will continue to recommend Paradise to everyone I know. Paradise has the best customer service I have ever had in San Antonio!!

I had been trying for two years to get someone to design and build a deck for me and had no success. Until I came to Paradise! I was so pleased that you sat with me and designed my deck on the spot and within a month I was sitting on my deck relaxing and admiring the quality of your work. I am so impressed with the professional, accommodating, and efficient work. Thank you so much.

Beware!! I had a 20 ft composite deck built by Paradise. After they installed the railing on it it was very loose, I brought it to their attention and they have come now 3x to try and fix it . Their fix is like putting a band aid on it. I had my whole house inspected and the inspector put the railing on the report and also he said they never installed the joists the were attached to the house right. He said they needed joist hangers and that this was a dangerous thing since this deck is 12 ft off the ground! Well they came and looked at the deck, tightened the railing again and did not do the joist hangers!! Their answer was it was fine the way it is!! I have called managers , left messages and no one will call me back.. Be warned they do shoddy work and do not stand behind any of it!!

I recently had a patio cover built by Paradise. Its unfortunate that the company builds directly from the purchase order. When my patio cover was complete it looked lopped sided. The left side overhang is @6in. lower than the rt side. They said this had to be done to use the material that I had ordered. Instead of discussing other options to make this job look right, they just followed what was on paper. We all know its good to have a plan. But even good plans change. The eye appeal and look of the structure is just as important as the stability. Keep your options open when searching for companies as such.

This company is ran by a bunch of car salesmen! Very nice to work with until you choose not to go with them. I did my research with all bids I got. I chose someone else, do to price and refrences. After they found out I did not go with them. ( I dont know how) They tried to under bid. I said no thank you very politely. Then they started with the threats, telling me I didn't do enough research with my choice. Thank you for challenging my intelligence! They also told me they were going to "tell" the city because of no "permit". Little did they know we already schedule a permit to be pulled. Its funny that they said it was up to me if I wanted to get any permits, they dont require them. Don't be fulled by these con artist. They will say anything to get a sale and if they dont get the sale they act like children with the "tattle tail" bit. As a consumer I dont believe in "bashing other companies" to make a sale. If I want to choose you its my choice and only my choice. Stay clear from this company.
