Very happy with the results of our new deck and porch replacing our old deck which was destroyed by a fallen tree. Want to say that communication about the details from design to estimate to implementation was fantastic. Jim Brennan(and his staff) took the time to answer all our questions before, during, and after the project was completed. Would recommend Structurally Speaking to anyone wanting a new deck and or porch.

Now that our deck is complete, I want to thank you and your team for the high level of craftsmanship and professionalism. We gave you a tight deadline for completion of the deck before a major social event and your team hit the target perfectly. The back and forth exchange of ideas and suggestions for the materials and design were most productive and our collaboration produced a beautiful deck area. As you know we connected immediately with the sense we could work well together and the whole process was well explained and executed to perfection. The experience you possess showed itself many times over from the easy inspection approval to the look of the deck design from all viewponts. Your crew was hard working and very highly skilled..a rare combination that shows in the final product. Thanks for a great job and many more beautiful decks are in your future, we are certain.

"I wanted to commend your team on the progress they have made. I got home late last night, and I was amazed at the progress that was made on our new deck. I was equally amazed at how much it looks like the actual diagram that we discussed!!! Awesome job!!!"

Brister Gowdy

"The deck is sooooooooooooo pretty at night with the lighting. We will really enjoy sitting on the deck this summer."

Becky Rainey

"Deck looks great. Thanks for your work and design. I think we will enjoy this set up for years to come, it really preserves the view from the dining room window and opens up to the back yard on the upper end."

Brian Fork

"Every design suggestion you made worked out perfectly! The size...the placement of the exit door...the little deck...and, of course, the new cedar siding on the house wall! The only piece that is a null for me is the place for my invisible grill! I hope your other customers enjoy their structures as much as I enjoy mine."

Trudi Kappel

"What a wonderful surprise to return from the mountains last week to find our deck beautifully stained! Thank you so much for a great job from start to finish. We are very pleased.

Come by whenever you are in the Rocky Mount area. We'll have a drink on the deck!"

"Just thought I’d let you know that we had some friends over that were interested in getting a custom porch similar to ours. I explained what we had done, our experiences with you and our discussions with others, and essentially said that at the end of the day, if I ever had to do another porch, I would have no hesitation having you do it again.

I said that you always went the extra mile and addressed any concerns I ever had. I warned them that the process can take longer than they expect, but ultimately it is worth it. I think I had them convinced that they would be crazy to go elsewhere. I pointed out that one of the main difference between you and others was your level of professionalism. You prepared designs, showed them in software, and provided drawings unlike others who may have been cheaper, but simply took the approach that they would build what you asked for without offering any design ideas. I also spoke well all of the guys in terms of their work ethic. I spoke so positively, they must have thought I was on commission!"

Rosemary Ros

"Jim and the crew of Structurally Speaking were fantastic. Jim's ideas for the design worked much better than the ones we had in mind. The work was done quickly and professionally. Our porch looks amazing and our family (especially our kids) spend most of their time there."

Ofri Leitner

"We could not be more pleased. Jim Brennan has a gift for design, and Structurally Speaking's crew did an excellent job of turning our vision into a reality. Their attention to detail and their overall workmanship was wonderful."
