GC vs Decking specialist for contractor

brandeischicMarch 7, 2013

What are people's thoughts on who to hire to build a deck? I have a contractor we used for our renovation that I really liked in terms of quality, communication, etc. We already have an established relationship and it would be hiring someone I know I can trust and work with. On the flip side, they do a lot of different kinds of projects, and while they have built porches and decks before, they must have far less experience, particularly with the decking product I am looking at, simply due to the # of projects of this type that they would have done. Do people typically tend to go with deck-only specialized contractors? Thoughts?
