Here is what our former clients had to say!

Workmanship is Fantastic

We are very happy with the replacement deck that was built by Upper Dauphin Vinyl Products. The workmanship is fantastic, the crew (led by Steven) who built the deck were very personable and responsive every step of the way. Benjamin was very helpful designing the deck and making our requested changes, and it was a pleasure to do business with Vernon. I highly recommend them to anyone who is in the market for their services.

Professional, Prompt, Very and Personable

Benjamin, Vernon and the crew at Upper Dauphin Vinyl Products were phenomenal in creating our beautiful covered deck. They were professional, prompt, very personable and fairly priced. I decided to change the size of our deck at the very last minute (yikes). We were only a week away from starting the project. Surprisingly, Benjamin worked his magic and was able to get us exactly what we wanted. During the project, I also requested some adjustments be made to the inside of our roof so that it was high enough to accommodate the tall men in my family. Benjamin came to the rescue again and made the requested accommodations. In both instances, he pleasant, understanding, helpful and got it done!! He was very great to work with and also great at communicating. The crew arrived early every morning and stayed on course with their timelines. Throughout the entire process, Benjamin and crew went above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied and happy customers. Our deck is the envy of our neighborhood! If you are looking to beautify your backyard with decking and with a company who cares, I highly recommend Benjamin with Upper Dauphin Vinyl Products. You will be pleasantly impressed!


A++ Contractor Experience

We’ve had an A++ contractor experience. From the very beginning they explained in detail planning, materials, schedule, and everything you want to know about decks. Communication was easy and prompt. All the guys were extremely knowledgeable and even had helpful suggestions as the job progressed. If you need a deck built look no further.

Outstanding Team!

Couldn’t say enough about Upper Dauphin Vinyl Products. Outstanding team from the early discussions with Benjamin reviewing products and design to Vernon P. planning every step of the project finishing with Steven and his crew, extremely talented and precise.

We chose Hickory color and are very pleased as the color also displays grey hues. Many years ahead enjoying our extended living space.

We Highly Recommend Them!

Upper Dauphin Vinyl brought our dreams to reality! We told them what we wanted and they figured out how it could be done. All the sub contractors that did our project were all coordinated so well through Upper Dauphin Vinyl. It was so nice not having to contact a bunch of different people to complete our project! We highly recommend them to do your outside deck or Pavilion project!

We Could Not Be Happier!

We recently had a deck project completed by Upper Dauphin Vinyl, and we could not be happier with the results! It is just absolutely beautiful and even better than we expected!!
All of the people we worked with at Upper Dauphin were helpful and kind and remained so throughout all of our project changes and questions we had along the way. The communication is SUPERB! Benjamin is a wonderful salesperson who is thorough and knowledgeable on all of the products. When he visited our home he was professional and not pushy at all, which is very important to us. We also had great communication with Vernon and Melvin, and could always sense sincerity and honesty in all of our dealings with them. Our project was started and completed exactly when we were told it would be. If you are unsure of who to use for your deck project, I would not look any further-you won’t be disappointed with Upper Dauphin!

Best Bang-for-Your-Dollar with No Hassle

November 2022 deck replacement by Upper Dauphin Vinyl Products – December 9, 2022

Replacing a deck or contemplating a new one?
Here are 3 steps to make your project easier than it was for us.

First, the project: replace a second-story 13’x32’ thirty-year-old pressure-treated pine deck (built upon the concrete-embedded metal posts from an earlier 1970s redwood deck) and its staircase and catwalk, with composite while doing no harm to a treasured black walnut tree.

Back then, composite was much more expensive than wood; now price-competitive. Composite uses recycled plastics (nice!); looks great (more colors, minimal shrinkage, no raised screws and rotting wood); is easier to maintain (no annual pressure-washing and biannual sealing); and if installed properly, should long outlast any wooden deck.

STEP 1: Contact a lot of contractors. From Big Box outlets to one-man operations who all say they do decks, we consulted with nearly a dozen businesses getting quotations that took many hours over months. Most were for a simple, straightforward replacement: deck boards and a fence railing. Two wanted to use the existing 2”x8” (30 years old) joists and metal posts (50 years old); or replace the stairs with a design that didn’t (as we discovered) meet code; or ask for 30% down payment without providing a detailed spec’d plan. With one exception, all estimators replied on Trex composite. Nothing quite felt right.

STEP 2: Be prepared for sticker shock! Estimates ranged from mid-$20K (50% above our guesstimate) to over $50K (4x what we paid for a stainless steel DeLorean). Yikes. Then we did one last Google search and found UDVP…

STEP 3: Eliminate Step 1 entirely and minimize Step 2 by contacting Upper Dauphin Vinyl Products. Why? Because you will likely get – as we did – the best bang-for-your-dollar with no hassle, chagrin and trepidation.

UDVP’s estimator, Benjamin, is the upmost professional, offering many options and open to every request and question. Detailed measurements and specifications? Code-compliant construction? Picture-framing? Cocktail rail? Upgrading (our choices) to Timbertech brand over Trex and opting for exotic cable railing over a basic post fence? Assuring that his crew would not damage the black walnut tree that is a centerpiece of the deck’s placement? Making us feel like he and his company really cared about the quality of UDVP’s work and our satisfaction with it? All there.

UDVP owner Vernon returned emails and phone calls quickly, keeping us fully “in the loop” when a misunderstanding about Code policy inadvertently delayed the project. Still, he guaranteed to squeeze in our job. To quote the Codes officer: “I never have a problem with Upper Dauphin!” Nor do we.

Bottom line: UDVP built us a lot of deck – complete post replacement upon titanium-infused foundation plates, new 6”x6” posts and 2”x10” joists, 13’x33’ area, picture-framing, cocktail rail, fancy cable fencing, catwalk and step-down platform to an under-deck patio, plus craftsmanship equal to everything this perfectionist would demand of himself (if we had the skills and tools to do the work) – for a price at the low end of estimates for a rudimentary “basic” replacement. And to quote the spouse: “I love it! I love it! I love it!”

Considering a new or replacement deck? Take our recommendation to heart: UDVP can, and will, deliver it. Full stop. Just know they are really busy – the best contractors always are.
