“Trace and team arrived as promised, introduced themselves and proceeded to begin remove the window and install a door. The door was installed with working locks a day earlier. The next morning, Trace and team arrived to install the deck. All questions were answered as the installation of the deck was performed.Trace and his team were friendly, respectful and very professional, cleaning up as they worked towards completion.”

“The deck was beautiful, larger than we expected, and well worth the money. Words can not explain how awesome the deck looks and the wood was so smooth. We plan on utilizing the services of Trace and his team for future projects as well as recommending them to potential customers. We would gladly recommend and hope that Trace, his team and Tab Property Enhancement would be given the Angies List Super Service Award for 2012–Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!”

“We can’t wait to utilize our beautiful deck in the spring and many more years to come. My grandsons were dancing free style and they love the deck, as well as people who have seen it. My mother is considering having a downstairs bathroom added. Trace and team, Keep Up the Excellent Work!!”

“I moved into my house a little over 5 years ago. There was a deck off the back of the house, about 16×32, that was in need of repair back then. The past several years with no shade finally caused to deck to start to fall into disrepair. I never really used the space particularly because there was no shade and it got full sun in the summertime. This house hasn’t had any major updates in years so I thought it was past due for a major renovation.”

I found TAB Property Enhancement through Angie’s list. Trace, the owner, had excellent reviews. I contacted him and shortly after he stopped out to provide an estimate for what I wanted done. I talked with Trace about some ideas and he had some great suggestions to maximize the used of the deck and patio area I wanted to put in. He provided pictures of past jobs he has done and sketched the plans for my yard. He was very accommodating when I wanted to make adjustments to the plan and there were a few. I was able to send him pictures of things I liked and he was able to incorporate that into the plan. Trace was very easy to work with.

The project included a complete tear out of a rather large area, which didn’t take long. He was able to start building according to schedule and made excellent progress each day. I had a 20×10 deck installed with railings and a set of steps out to the yard and another to the side of the yard. I also had a pergola installed with a privacy/shade wall to the outside portion of the deck. Lighting was installed under the railings and in the steps. The best part is not only does it provide a very nice low light, it’s on a timer! I love this feature!! Where the steps come off the side of the deck, I had a paver path installed leading to a 12×12 patio area with a built in fire pit. The fire pit is actually quite large which allows for a larger fire in the colder weather. I’ve already used this and love it!! I had landscaping done around the firepit, including arbovitae that will eventually fill in for privacy. I had landscaping done around the house that included adding soil, mulch, and planting boxwoods. A privacy fence was installed in sections on either side of the property to close everything off. Additional lighting was installed in several of the paver blocks on the path and around the firepit, which is perfect!! The rest of the area was seeded to provide more grassy area.

“This was a sizable project, yet Trace and his crew were able to complete it in about a week and a half. All of the guys were very polite and friendly. Each day when they left, everything was cleaned up and the driveway was blown off. The only last part of this project will be done in the spring. I am having all the wood stained, except the privacy wall and pergola on the deck. Those I had installed with cedar. They will be staining the other wood a cedar tone to match. Can’t wait to see it totally finished!

“The backyard looks FANTASTIC!! I have gotten so many compliments. Neighbors are still stopping by to look. I have only one regret. That I didn’t do this years ago!! Trace has followed up to make sure I’m happy with everything. I can say wholeheartedly yes. He turned a space I hated into an area I love. I highly recommend TAB Property Enhancement. Trace does excellent work. If I ever need something else done in the yard in the future, he’ll be the first person I call.”


“Trace was very responsive and easy to work with. My wife and I were not exactly sure what we were able to get for our money between the need to fix the drainage issue and our desire for a new patio. He spent a lot of time with us in the design phase and promptly returned our calls and emails.

Trace and his crew were all very professional and courteous. They answered all of my questions throughout the process. As a first-time home-buyer, this was one of the biggest projects we had undertaken since moving in. We were very nervous and inquisitive at first, but they did a great job of talking us through the project and making sure we understood what was going on and why. We would absolutely recommend Trace to our friends and family. We wouldn’t hesitate to give him a call for future projects.”

I built a house in Tremont in 2007 and purchased an extra city lot (30′ x 90′) that I hoped to turn into a nice modern urban courtyard. In 2012 I finally got around to do that and contracted with TAB (Trace) for the entire project which included the following services:
(1) Consultation and design services (2) Demolition and removal of entire existing yard(3) Installation of 12′ x 14′ patio(4) Installation of 60′ walkway(5) Installation of 110′ custom cedar fence(6) Installation of trees, shrubs, plants, etc per design(7) Installation of lighting system
My house is a unique one a kind house and the landscaping that Trace put in is not your normal landscaping. The design required unique elements, material and a installation process that required precision, attention to detail and lots of planning. Trace and his crew did a fantastic job. I could not be any happier. I will use them again. A+ service. I would not hesitate from contacting Trace again. He and his team are friendly, trustworthy and professional. They did an absolutely fantastic job and exceeded my expectations. You can feel comfortable with Trace.

I know how incredibly import these summaries are. 3 months ago I was looking on Angie’s List for someone to help me with my project. I reached out to a handful of companies but Trace and TAB were the most responsive from the get go. I asked Trace to come out and meet me and talk about the project. He did so and i liked his ideas, can-do attitude and follow-up. He was very consultative, helpful and generally nice to talk with. I looked through all his other projects and felt he would do a great job. I asked Trace to provide a general quote and layout of the yard incorporating my ideas. He did so and turned everything around very quickly. We discussed at great length my ideas for the entire space, the patio, the walkway and the custom fence. We had a couple iterations on the design and price and each time I worked with Trace I became more excited about the project and confident Trace would do a great job. We settled on a design concept, materials and layout and began work. I live in Tremont, so getting the custom fence permit approved proved to be the long pole in the tent so we had to reschedule a couple of times but that was not Traces’ fault. He was very accommodating.
The first day of the project Trace and his team arrived on time and starting at the demolition. Each day they accomplished a ton of work. I was surprised at the progress the team made every day. One of the things I really liked about working with Trace was when there was a challenge he found a creative way around it. For example, we had originally planned on a section of the fence to run a certain way but we ran into issues getting the post holes dug far enough below grade since there were some serious obstructions in the ground. Rather than make it a issue, Trace found a creative way to replan this section of the fence. I thought, this is why I hired him. I wish I could submit pictures of the finished yard. It looks amazing. Every person in my neighborhood has stopped by and remarked at the transformation. They has all said, “wow”. Most of them are contacting Trace of other projects after seeing his work. If you want a professional job done and the “wow” factor don’t hesitate to call Trace. You will not be disappointed.

I have found this company and owner to be truly outstanding in his approach to service delivery. This company performs their job in a quite professional manner. I would continue to do business with them. My experience with Tab began in the summer of 2011 and continued throughout the winter. It is my hope that it will continue this summer. The owner of this company is in my view a honest, fair business owner/person.
