The title says it all. David is an artist and produces a beautiful sculptured haven in your outdoor space making it magical and enchanting every single day. A place of serenity and peace. Your safe place that you can relax and enjoy year round. We have been customers for 4 years now and have given Dave many referrals. Over the years his work is still in excellent condition and has held up to the severe weather conditions in Tampa, Florida. We won Yard of the Month in our Seminole Heights community and were on the Home Tour too. Dave has installed shade structures, decks and balconies for us. He did our fire pit and located it in an area where we can experience the beauty that surrounds us in our backyard. His imagination is endless. Dave took an aboveground pool that was dropped into a deck and turned it into a split level outdoor kitchen with a four sided fireplace and benches that you can sit on with built in planters for plants and flowers. He built a bar on the other side of the outdoor kitchen where we can engage in conversation with our guests while eating and drinking and enjoy the view which overlooks the Hillsborough River. Dave also relocated our spa so we have a 210 degree view of the river and our entire backyard. Location of the different vignettes he created is key in making our outdoor space an ongoing experience. His work is outstanding. His work has added emotional satisfaction and has increased our real estate value tremendously. Dave is your guy to beautify your yard and garden. We highly recommend Exterior Concepts.

Exterior Concepts just finished a deck for our home, and we could not be more excited and please with the experience and the finished product. I first met with David, and he provided insight and advice that improved upon the original ideas I had for the deck. When I told David that I needed the deck to be completed in a short amount of time (as the deck was a surprise), he was more than accomodating and made sure to provide the resources such that the deck could be completed in the correct time frame. He even went the extra mile of coordinating with me to make sure we were out of town so as not to ruin the surprise. When I came back home, I came back to a beautiful and well-crafted deck. I would recommend Exterior Concepts to any of my friends.

We contacted Exterior Concepts in May and Peter came on May 29, 2013 to measure and extend us an estimated quote and said David would draw up plans and get back with us within a couple of days. We waited for over a week and finally called them and Dave said that he had been attending graduation ceremonies, etc and was working on our plans at that time and would get back with us the next day. Several days later, we called again and got the same news. Finally, we received an email with an attachment that showed plans and gave us choices and quotes. After visiting the vendor and choosing the pavers, we were told that our project would be completed by the following week...this should have been on Friday, June 27th. There had been a couple of calls and an email stating that someone was on their way to take out the old patio or was on their way to clean up the area, etc. but no one actually showed up. Finally I sent an email stating that we would need to find someone else to complete the job and requested our deposit returned and stated I would seek legal representation if necessary. Within 30 minutes I received a call from Peter and someone came to start taking out the old patio. I was told at that time the project would be finished by the following week...NOT. Then they didn't order enough pavers for the job and had to get more and then it was special order for the screen (we live in a one story single family home) and the list just goes on. We bought a new grill for the 4th of July and had to put it in our dining room while we waited for our patio to be finished and when Peter came over to pick up the 2nd payment installment he told us we could buy a grill cover. REALLY?? We FINALLY got the project completed 2 days ago but to add insult to injury the mess left behind was hardly worth the joy of finally seeing it finished. The crew left behind drink containers, plastic, Styrofoam, empty cigarette packs, and piles of dirt and yard debris. We are still cleaning up the numerous cigarette butts from our yard that their workers left behind. Disgusting. Here's a little hint...non-smokers do not like to clean up someone's nasty cigarette butts. The completed patio is lovely but we will not use them for any other projects because the wait and final clean up is not worth it. Sad really because we had hoped to have them install a water fountain and complete work on the front of our home but will now go with someone else. On another note...we had new patio doors installed by Armortech just prior to Exterior Concepts beginning their work and the team from Armortech arrived exactly on the date and time they were expected, spent several hours on the job and completely cleaned up after themselves as well as taking away extra debris that we were no longer going to use. The owner came by to inspect the job the following week and gave us ideas on how to remove a non-working water spigot. That's what brings customers back and we will be hiring them again to install our new entrance door. Sorry Exterior Concepts...you do lovely work when you actually show up but we've been burned and will not do business with you again.

We are thrilled with our pergola and arbors that David and his team built for us. They were very thorough in their work, but also completed the project very quickly. I was impressed with the quality of work and design skills. I plan on using them again for future projects.

Exterior Concepts rebuilt my dock on Davis Island. The work was done promptly at a very reasonable price with excellent materials and supurb workmanship. David Hetrick supervised the work, was involved in all phases of the project. We are very pleased with the results and would strongly recoment Exterior Concepts.

In our case we initially just wanted a pergola in the back yard, after we saw his work we decided to also get the pavers as well. The work Dave and his crew did was very creative and artistic (also incorporated some of out existing pavers into the pattern). We could not be happier with out new outdoor room and we have, and will continue to recommend this business to our friends and neighbors!

I spent $22k with David Hetrick at Exterior Concepts. Here are the facts:

1) He said that he would do the work himself. Over the course of 90 days, he spent at most 2 full days on the job site.

2) He subcontracted work to poor quality contractors who delivered wrong product and poor installation.

3) David promised to fix any/all problems and provide a warranty. After he was paid (prior to completion of project - my fault for listening to him), he ignored all phone calls. I had to hire somebody else to finish the job and correct the problems.

If you want photos, email me at atwnsw@gmail dot com

Good luck.
