Love It! After seeing Nick’s work in our neighborhood on 2 other porches, we asked him to build us a screened patio with a side deck. They matched the house paint and trim exactly, the work was exceptional, Nick and his team were on schedule, and in 2 weeks we had a perfect deck. I agree with all of the reviews below, the team was 100% professional, the quality is outstanding, and we highly recommend Probuilt Construction. Great job, Thanks!

Nick went Above and Beyond! I hired Pro Built Construction to build us a screened patio and an outside patio area with stamped concrete. They exceeded my expectations with the amount of time and effort they put into building the patio, to make sure everything was 100% perfect…which it was! Nick walked us through the entire process from start to finish, making sure we understand the entire process and that we got exactly what we wanted. He had some great suggestions that really turned our patio from good to great! Been relaxing on my patio everyday, watching TV, listening to the surround sound speakers they install. Couldn’t say enough nice things about them. Highly recommended!

Nick and his crew were outstanding!! I had an estimate from a recommended contractor and wanted to get a second estimate and perspective on what someone else would offer. I am SO glad I went with Nick! He and his crew were on the job exactly when they said they would be, and they did a superb job! The end result was beautiful and the craftsmanship was just excellent. I am a perfectionist when it comes to having work done on my house, and their work far exceeded my expectations! I very highly recommend ProBuilt!!

Awesome job and Fantastic crew!!! Nick and his crew did a fabulous job on our screened in porch. He was THE ONLY guy who came out and had suggestions as to how best to configure our porch. He solved all the problems that we thought we had! Nick and his crew were here at 7:30 every morning ready to work. They were always courteous and took the time to explain to me how everything was going. My husband was out of town and Nick sent him picture updates everday! He went above and beyond. The quality of work is impeccable – I could not have asked for anything more. When we have more projects to do, Nick and his crew will be our first call!

We interviewed four companies for our project . From the morning Nick and his team arrived we knew we had made the right choice. The quality, timeliness and professionalism of ProBuilt’s work met and exceeded our expectations and we recommend them without reservation. We would not do anything differently! Thank you Nick and team for everything!

Oustanding Work, Quality and Service! Nick and his crew did an outstanding job on our new porch and deck. Our roof was difficult at best for them to tie into and they did an excellent job. It looks like it was built like that from the beginning and not an addition. Also, we found issue with the quality of the work done on some replacement windows we had installed years ago. Nick and his crew rebuillt every window and they are better than new. All the work including the rebuild of the windows was done in less than two weeks. One thing about these guys is if they tell you something you can count on it. If they say they will be there at 7:30 Nick is backing in the drive way at 7:30. Everything is cleaned up every day as well. It was the neatest construction site I have ever seen. If you want a porch or need any construction work done Nick and his crew are the ones to call. We HIGHLY recommend them.

We LOVE our new screened porch and deck! It’s too bad we don’t need more porches or decks on our house because we would hire Nick again in a heartbeat! Nick and his crew are such professionals. Their attention to detail and their level of craftsmanship is amazing. The whole process only took about two weeks and all we had to do was sit back and watch our beautiful screened porch and deck come together. When we hired Nick, we knew we would get a great end result. But, the finished product was even more beautiful that we imagined and we are 100% enthusiastically satisfied!

BDSC ‎ – Aug 12, 2011

Exceeded my Expectations! So what does that mean because I expected a great looking deck made from top quality materials at a fair price and that’s just what I got. So how was that exceeded? Trust me, as good as the pictures look on his website, the deck looks even better in person! Honestly, I couldn’t be more pleased with the deck. Nick and his crew were on time with the start and completion of the project and it only took him a couple of days. I don’t see how anyone could build you a better deck than Nick. As good…..maybe so……..but not better for sure!

Sanju ‎ – Feb 14, 2011

ProBuilt Construction did an awesome job in tearing down our existing (aging) deck and built a superlative screen-porch with a grilling deck. All their work and team members were of top-notch professional quality. Everything to the minutest details were done on time, on budget and again of top quality workmanship. Nick, from the first time he came to get details of our project, has been very helpful in every aspect of the deck/screen-porch design and building. Being first timer for this kind of project we relied heavily on his experience, design skills and the whole 9 yards. And I am happy to say that he didn’t disappoint us. Infact he delivered beyond our expectations! Definitely a 5-star, highly recommended!

Unbelievable builder! Pro-Built Construction should have it’s own reality show! These guys are pros who know their craft inside and out. They gave me a fully finished screen porch in a matter of days! It looks like its always been a part of the house. FIVE STARS!!!

Hard to believe for some people….

leave a comment »

“We build decks and screen porches in half the time of other companies.”  That is a statement that is hard to believe for some people.  Add the fact that our projects are also the highest quality around and you have a statement that sounds impossible.  The fact is we know what we are doing and we waste no time.   We don’t rush either, we just know every phase of the project before we even start.  The whole job is planned out to the “T” before the first lumber package is even opened.  This experience comes from my background in house framing.  My name is Nick Overby and I run Pro-Built Construction.  In the 90’s, I was a house framer and ran a crew that built houses from $300,000 and up.  I built very complicated house designs and every one was different.   Having an extensive background in house framing, “I know what is inside the walls”.  That is a huge advantage in what we do.  Not only that, but add the efficiency of a framing crew to that equation and you have something that can’t be beat.  We have found our niche and couldn’t be happier.  Our life is building beautiful decks and screen porches.  Making people happy makes us happy.  Set up a quote with us and we will provide you with a long list of recent references who can back up our claims.  If you want a higher quality porch in less time, call us at 919-235-5582.  You can see recent projects at our Facebook page.

The Fall season is upon us!!!

leave a comment »

Fall is upon us and it tends to be a busy season for us.   Once everyone is finished with their vacations and the weather gets bearable, people start thinking about the projects on their wishlist.  The two top items are usually a deck or screen porch.  If you “fall” into this category, then we can help you.  Not only can we build you the best deck or porch for your money, but we can complete a project in a more timely fashion than most companies.  We have a dialed-in focus, specializing in mainly decks and screen porches.  Building these every day has made us very efficient at what we do.  We have our wood ordering, building procedures, inspections scheduling and game-plan down to a  science.

HOA approvals can take some time, so if you are planning to have your project completed this fall, you might want to get that going.  Most HOA’s require an application, a drawing of the proposed addition and neighbor signatures.  The HOA approval process can actually be the longest part of the whole build.  If you choose us for your project, we will be happy to help you through the process and in some cases, help speed things up a little bit by directly corresponding with your HOA personnel.  With Fall being a busy season for us, if you are serious about building a deck or porch, now is the time to call.  We can provide you with all of the information you need for your project as well as a timeline.  You can call 919-235-5582 or email us for a free quote.

Deck and Screen Porch Construction

leave a comment »

Deck and screen Porch Construction is a specialty trade in itself.  Not only do you have to know how to seamlessly tie in an addition to a house, but you have to visualize the end result.  You have to know the ins and out of framing, siding, trim work and even electrical work.  You don’t want to see obvious mistakes from poor planning on your project.  You can tell the difference between a mediocre project and a perfect one.  We don’t accept anything less than perfect.

At Pro-Built, every one of our pro carpenters are fully experienced in framing/ deck framing, siding and trim work.  You must have an experienced leader with an experienced crew to build a project efficiently and seamlessly.  Each of our crew can build projects by themselves and encouraged to do so in any slow times.  This keeps the good help around without constantly hiring drifters.  This is also good for them.  We also pay very well for the right kind of people.  People who show up on time with a mission to accept nothing less than perfect.

My name is Nick Overby.  I own Pro-Built and actually run the day to day operations.  This means I am on site cutting, nailing and even some times, toting wood 🙂  I am also the one who will be quoting your project.  This means from day one through the entire project, you will be dealing with me, a professional carpenter who will be actually building your project with my crew.

Pro-Built Construction Recent Projects and Reviews

An incredible job!

Pro-Built (Nick Overby and crew) built our new deck and screened in porch. I knew from our initial meeting that this was someone we could trust to do a good job, but I didn’t have a clue that he would totally exceed our expectations. Their attention to detail was impressive to say the least. They were prompt, dependable, hard-working, and all are true craftsmen. The end result is a beautiful structure that is a seamless addition to our home.

Nick had a great vision of what would look best yet he was totally respectful of every one of our wishes and suggestions. The entire project (old deck tear-down, new deck, and porch) was completed in 9 days which we found remarkable. Hiring Pro-Built was a great decision and we are very happy to recommend him to others.

Merchant Ratings Screen Porch and Grilling Deck

Nick and company replaced my decrepit deck with a gorgeous, spectacular screen porch and grilling deck. I am elated with the results! Nick and team worked diligently and the project was complete in less than two weeks.

Nick’s website, along with his presentation of the available innovative options for me to consider were outstanding and far exceeded expecation. I would give Nick and company more than 5 stars if that was possible! Thank you again, Nick!

Merchant Ratings We love our new deck!

Nick and his crew replaced and extended our existing deck in April of this year. Our new deck was built exactly how we wanted it and it looks fantastic. They were highly professional and a pleasure to work with. We also have young children and as someone else had mentioned everything was kept organized and clean. We love our new deck and would recommend Nick and Pro-Built to anyone!

Merchant Ratings An excellent job very well done!

All the reviews on this site about Nick and his team are true! We had Pro-Built Construction convert our existing deck to a screened porch and we could not be happier with the result. They turned up on time and got the job done when they said they would. They were highly professional and a pleasure to work with. Prior to asking Nick to take on the conversion we visited a home where he and the team had fitted another screen porch of similar design to what we wanted. We were very impressed with the attention to detail and the quality of the workmanship. This was all reflected in the work they did for us. We recommend you ask to see some of Nick’s previous work to see what we mean. We are absolutely delighted and don’t think you will be disappointed. Thank you Nick and the team – an excellent job very well done!

Merchant Ratings Delighted with our Probuilt Deck

Nick and his crew replaced and extended our existing deck in May of this year. The new deck was bulit based upon a rough plan that I had made and Nick was generous with his time in providing suggestions that would make the final design work out well. Nick and his team are very experienced professionals, who take great pride in their workmanship. Our new deck was bulit exactly how we wanted it and it looks magnificent. Amazingly, even though it is around 700 square feet, the guys completed the job in about three days! We have young kids and it was impressive that each day, the guys left everything tidy and safe so that our kids would not be put in harms way. Nick and his Probuilt team have my highest recommendation – they were dependable, hard-working, courteous, and built a deck that is outstanding in both quality and value. We are absolutely delighted with our new deck!

Merchant Ratings Deck Refurbishment

My wife and I cannot express how pleased we are with our new deck!! Nick listened to our ideas and shared our vision in creating a new outdoor living space for our family. As this project was a deck refurbishment, Nick was able to bring our 20 yr + deck up to code ensuring a long lasting and safe structure for many years to come. Nick and his team work like a well oiled machine and made sure that the work was done to our desires and specifications. How refreshing it is to find people that arrive on time and do exactly what they say they will do. Simply put, Nick and his Pro-Built Construction crew exceeded our expectations. Glenn & Traci Mack

This stunning new porch is the result of Nick’s attention to detail, his knowledge about his craft, and his excellent work skills. He and his crew were a delight to work with. They were punctual, worked diligently to complete the schedule Nick had laid out for us in the beginning of the job, and they cleaned up their work areas each day making it much easier to live with the construction. We were impressed with Nick and his crew at every turn. The quality of their work, and the speed with which they handled our construction was pretty amazing. We would highly recommend Nick to anyone wanting beautiful craftsmanship at a fair price from a reputable business owner with a great crew behind him. We absolutely love our new porch!

As we work, jobsite organization and customer safety are important to us.  Basically, we treat all of our jobs as if we were working on our own homes.  We are a company run by experienced carpenters, not a salesman on a commission. Other companies can provide an awkward experience in having to deal with a salesman (who has never built anything) relating desires of the customer to the carpenter.  In essence, he is an unnecessary “middle man” who not only increases cost, but can confuse both parties.  Please feel free to e-mail us with any questions you might have.  Just fill out the form below to contact us.  We are prompt in our responses, and look forward to helping you.  Check out our resources below:
