Editorial review from Citysearch 4/3/2013

This man is a thief and very dishonest. I had dealings with him several years ago and he stole my deposit and my expensive wrought iron railing. He never returned my phone calls and I took him to court twice and of course he never showed up. more

Be very careful dealing with Michael Minneker 7/14/2010

Our project with Michael Minneker at Element Exteriors did not turn out well. There are a number of reasons why including that he did not install the same materials as he quoted and that he has ignored our numerous attempts to contact and resolve the issues. more

Perfect! 10/3/2008

Michael did a wonderful job on our fence this fall! He was very competitive in pricing and added a personal touch to the job. He was definitely focused on his work and making sure everything was done right! Thanks!! A definite recommend for anyone looking for custom service in Nashville. Pros: Communicated well, excellent work ethic. Cons: non more

Referred to me...would refer to you! 6/14/2008

Michael was one of several bids I received. He was in the middle on pricing but was open to the vision I had of what I wanted. Others seemed to have a ""one-way"" approach to building a fence. He met the expectations of the design I had in mind and was very personable throughout the process. My neighbors have been flocking to see the fence and the pickiest of neighbors (craftsmen themselves) are thrilled with the results as well. Cannot imagine how 3 feedbacks, that were negative, all came in on the same day against his work or ethics. I am awaiting a final piece to my fence and Michael has been in contact with me as to when it will come in. I have no concerns or worries that he will follow through as he has done so all along. It should be noted that Michael was referred to me from another happy ""ArtDecko"" fence owner and that is how I connected with him. I will recommend as well. Pros: Decent price, gives that extra touch more

Great Custom Fence job! 6/6/2008

Our neighborhood has its own privacy fence specs and Michael was able to accommodate our project. He did a great job - workmanship, friendliness, response to contact, time to complete to project, handling changes we needed last minute, etc. - were all top notch! Our neighbors have used him and are also very pleased. We'd recommend his work to anyone looking for a great custom privacy fence! Pros: Best price of all quotes we got, great workmanship, prompt job completion more

Deck design and finish work exceed expectations 5/27/2008

I highly recomend ArtDeckco for your decking project. From initial design to detailed carpentry work, AD knows how to build a beautiful deck you will be proud have as an addition to your home. Pros: Quality work at fair prices more

Well built Privacy Fence 5/27/2008

I have had alot of bad luck in the past with Independent Contracters but, Michael did everything he said he would do. We were very pleased with the job he did from start to finish. He started in a timely manner and when the job was finished he cleaned up everything. I would highly recommend him. Pros: Excellent quality and very reliable more


I would strongly recommend finding someone else to do your fence!!!! Mike seemed like an upstanding small business owner when I met him. However, he failed to return to complete the staining of the fence, and he also never fixed a gate that he installed UPSIDE DOWN!!!!! As a teacher, I not only teach the academic subjects, I also teach children about character and how to treat others. Mike has failed in this category, as he will not even return phonecalls or emails. This is the only time I have ever written a negative review for anything, but it was very well-deserved. FIND SOMEONE ELSE TO BUILD YOUR FENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cons: Unethical more

Will rip you off 5/21/2008

This is the first negative review I ever wrote and it is deservingly so. About 3 months ago, I contacted several fence companies including Artdecko. Mike was the friendliest and cheapest out there plus I am always a supporter of small business so I naturally went with him. In addition, there was a coupon for a free seal and stain if you acted on buying a fence before the end of the month. I couldn't go wrong, so I thought. The fence itself was mediocre but I wasn't upset about that. You obviously get what you pay for and I got a mediocre fence for a decent price. What really upset me were the two other occurrences. The gate that Mike bragged about prior to putting up the fence is not even usable. I have to put rocks next to it just to keep it closed so my dogs don't get out. When I mentioned it to him when he came to pick up his other half of the money he said he would be able to fix it that weekend. After he left with the rest of his money, he failed to ever come back and fix it. The second thing that really upset me was the stain and seal. He was suppose to come in mid April to complete this part but when mid April came he never showed. I contacted him Probably 10 times by e-mail and 20 times by phone over the last month trying to give him the benefit of the doubt but he refused to call me back or follow up with me. Now a month later, I am writing my first bad review with a bad taste in my month for independent builders. Going forward I will pay the few hundred extra dollars to work with a professional company. My hope is that you will think twice before working with Mike. I don't want anyone to have the same experience that I had. He has shown no integrity during this process and it amazes me that people would conduct business this way. more

Beautiful fence design and construction 4/10/2008

I recently purchased a new house in the Bridgewater development in Hermitage, TN after having recently moved back to Nashville after 22 years up in Maryland. more

Love Our Fence 4/8/2008

We would definitely use Michael again, and have already planned another project. Michael responded to our request for an estimate quickly and was out to our house within a day or two. He was very nice to work with, and got the job done quickly. The fence is great . . . the construction and craftsmanship are excellent. We would highly recommend his work and his team - they were very polite and professional, and worked non-stop until the project was completed. more

Our kitchen is amazing! 12/15/2007

Mike Minneker's workmanship shows his precise attention to detail and style. He has cutting edge ideas, tremendous work ethic, and pride in his work. Our kitchen is beyond our dreams! We will call Mike first with any of our remodeling needs! Pros: Work ethic, style, precision, easy to work with Cons: Absolutely non more

WOW! My fence rocks! 11/20/2007

Ok, I absolutely HIGHLY RECOMMEND Art Decko!!! I have a huge back yard that had an old yucky chain link fence with a bunch of trees and shrubbery growing up in it. I thought it was going to cost me an arm and a leg to get a new privacy fence put up. I called four companies to quote the fence and to my surprise it wasn't as much as I thought. HOWEVER, I couldn't believe how many ""extras"" I received from Art Decko for the same price as the other guys standard fences. Michael, the owner, was there every morning bright and early! (I liked that he actually helped in the building of my fence) All of the guys at Art Decko are professional, my fence only took four days to construct (including the removal of the old fence), each day my yard was cleaned up and when I came home the day the fence was done I couldn't believe what a quality fence I had!! Michael had even arched the fence posts and gates, something I didn't even ask for, just to give the fence character and that extra design element! There were NO corners cut in the construction of my fence! I just couldn't be more pleased! Since my fence has been completed EVERYONE just raves about it! When I tell them how much it cost they can't believe it! My parents (the biggest and most important critics:) ) are impressed as well. They are even considering removing their old privacy fence and said they would use NO ONE except Michael and the guys at Art Decko! Many thanks to Michael and everyone at Art Decko for giving my fence that extra WOW! Factor! Pros: Quality, Quality, Quality!!! more

Friendlist and Reliable Builder 10/30/2007

I had been looking for someone to build a fence for about a year until I found Michael wtih ArtDecko. He is the only builder that would return a call in a timely manner, very personable, and wonderful to work with. Also, he is reasonably priced. We absolutely love our fence and would use his services again. more

New Deck - A Great Experience!! 10/1/2007

We wanted to replace our deck (facing the 7th green at Indian Hills golf course in Murfreesboro). We accepted on-site quotes from three companies. We were most impressed with Michael, in that he...1) listened intently to our plans, 2) asked the appropriate follow-up questions, and 3) made very good suggestions to better (and more cost effectively) design the project. Michael and his team were on schedule in removing the old deck and building the new deck. We were (and still are) very pleased with Michael's work. We have received numerous compliments from neighbors and golfers passing by. We have recommended Michael to others and will definitely call him first for future projects. The work was done within the original cost quote. Highly recommended!! Pros: Good communication, dependable, quality work, on schedule more

Amazing deck ideas and construction! 9/28/2007

Within a short week we had the deck of our dreams built. It was wonderful that they were able to use software to show us what it would look like, since we asked for a half hexagon. They were on time, had competetive pricing, and were polite and considerate. I will be sure to use them for my new fence soon! Highly recommended! Pros: software use, artsy, listen well more

Excellent Fence Work 9/25/2007

Michael was able to design and build an elaborate 8 foot backyard wooden fence precisely the way I envisioned it. He was able to begin construction immediately and finish on time and on budget. I am very proud of the final result and have received many compliments. Pros: Thumbs up. Detailed workmanship, timely completion more

Professional, Great Craftsmanship 9/24/2007

ArtDecko built us a beautiful custom-designed cedar fence. Michael (owner) did much of the work himself and he was meticulous and professional in his approach to each aspect of the project. I had a design in mind and he worked with me to realize that vision. He suggested a design for the gates that is both functional and looks great. His creativity and expertise resulted in a beautiful addition to our yard. The fence was constructed in a timely manor and, after each day of construction, the worksite was left immaculate. Michael was attentive to our schedule and that of my neighbors during the construction process. I had a very positive experience and highly recommend ArtDecko. Pros: pride in workmanship. creative. willingness to work with client. more
