James Irwin is more than a deck builder. His talents have extended into numerous projects that we have worked together on in the past 10 years: [from] foundation to finished construction of a new home, a home remodel, an expansion bridge, and both my personal residence as well as my downtown office. While all were challenging, James performed consistently with a combination of expertise, design sensibility and care. I am looking forward to working with him again.

It has been such a great pleasure working with James and his team over the last several years. First of all, his honesty is second to none. Coming from the service industry, I can tell you that relationships are the most important aspect of a business. James is truly a man of his word. From the initial meeting with him to the completion of the project, James is the most professional contractor I have ever dealt with. His team truly built the best patio for our home I have ever seen. His ideas also were so innovative. We have had so many people comment on the work that he did for us and I am always so thrilled to refer him to friends and colleagues. I am eagerly looking forward to his latest project for us, because I know that it will again be the focus of many conversations in the future in terms of its quality, workmanship and beauty.

I have worked with James as both a customer as well as a general contractor on large scale landscape design projects. I have found James to be the consummate professional with great vision and attention to detail. I have always been thrilled with the end product which is why I called James when I needed a dramatic arched bridge to span a large creek bed for a project which will air on HGTV’s Landscaper’s Challenge. The bridge was the center point of the design and James executed perfectly. If you are looking for quality and someone to go the extra mile, look no further.

Hello my friends
I know that it is no secret to any of you that we have had a few issues with our new home (3 years ago we started), pool and retaining walls falling down the hill, earth berms collapsing underfoot, a balcony splitting the bricks across the front, and water penetration creating stalactites! Who knew how much fun we would have in our first years of the new hacienda!!!! However, we were very lucky that our next door neighbor was doing some outdoor landscaping and construction and is how I met:
Dan McBride & James Irwin…
“I had just learned about the pool issue and Dan was the first to start the ball rolling, and soon James was in the picture!…you will see there isn’t much they can’t do! But what is more important, I found them to be two of the most honest men who love their work and make it their mission to ensure that the client is always happy and satisfied! They listen, they suggest and they are incredibly creative with everything they do. Their employees are ALWAYS on time, they work non-stop until the job is done, they are very courteous and at the end of each work day they clean up all their tools and leave the area ready for the next day. They work very hard and they always went one step more to be sure you were satisfied.
You all know that I am a bit of a talker (ha ha), so you can imagine I was delighted that not only did they endure my endless questions and gabbing, but they had some pretty funny moments as well! They are the ultimate professionals when it comes to the job and really nice guys!
So if you think of a project, give them a call, you will be very SATIFSIED!
