Dealing with Randy and his crew was nothing less than exceptional, perfection, professionalism, care & attention to detail. We worked closely with Randy when designing our backyard oasis and he and his crew not only met our expectations but exceeded them WAY more than we could have ever hoped for. The attention to detail and custom work done in our backyard blew us away. We get so excited to now have people over to view his masterpiece in our backyard. If you are looking for the highest quality, craftsmanship, and a crew dedicated to getting the job done, don't look any further than Setting Sun Patios & Deck. You won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for someone to help transform your yard, look no further! We had a ground-level 580 sqft wood deck that was rotting and weren’t sure if we should simply replace it or create an entirely different outdoor living space, and needed help from a design perspective. After getting several quotes, we quickly realized Randy Scott’s vision and design for a stone paver patio was exactly what we were looking for.

Setting Sun built two separate patios - one lounge patio with a grilling area, the other with a fire pit, connected by walkways and garden spaces. We went from a very large deck that we only used less-than half of, to having two functional, separate spaces that are beautiful, practical and have already been used much more! It made our outdoor living space feel so much bigger.

Randy and his team were wonderful to work with from the very beginning. Randy communicated with us via email, phone calls and texts, and was always available for questions. From the initial design and quote, we were able to make adjustments and changes throughout the build (including adding beautiful lighting last minute). He truly wanted to understand what we were looking for in order to give us our dream backyard.

The Setting Sun crew was efficient, worked cleanly and was very friendly. Our project was slightly delayed due to weather, but also because Randy and his team worked hard to ensure every last detail was perfect, which we really appreciated.

We would highly recommend Randy Scott and Setting Sun Patio and Decks!!

Randy and his Setting Sun Patio team were outstanding! I can't speak highly enough about them and the entire process. Randy wasn't just willing to listen to my designs ideas, he was excited to do them. I kept tweaking the design, and wanting to use different stones and wall blocks. This might deter other designers, but Randy seemed to really be excited and excel in the making the new ideas come to life.

We used Randy to complete the patio and the skirting around the deck, both were done perfectly. Even though the rain, survey, and permitting, seemed to delay everything, Randy kept me informed at every step of the process and was incredibly responsive to my messages.

I've already recommended him to friend and neighbors, and he will be the person I call if I need something done in the future.

Setting Sun worked with me not only in the building of my dream patio, but Randy Scott was also instrumental in the design and material selection. I gave Randy some rough parameters as to what I was looking for and he used his creativity and experience to design a tremendous outdoor living space. He always had time for me and even went to help pick out materials multiple times due to COVID and a shutdown in production at some plants.

I highly recommend Setting Sun not only for Randy’s design ideas, but also for his workmanship and attention to detail. I couldn’t be happier with my new outdoor living space and know my family will spend a lot of time using it.

Our small unusable backyard was transformed into an awesome outdoor oasis! Setting Sun built a wonderful 10'x15' dining patio with a walkway to a 14' round fire pit patio using Belgard Cambridge Cobble pavers and Valencia fire pit by Techno-Bloc. The crew did fantastic work and cleaned up the worksite upon completion.

The owner, Randy Scott, was awesome to work with from initial contact all the way through the end of project. Randy was always communicative whether it be through email, phone, or text message. Originally, we had three contractors provide estimates and weigh in on possibilities. By far, Randy's vision was the best. His creativity and attention to detail were exactly what we needed! Furthermore, the estimate received from Setting Sun was competitive with the other contractors we met with. Best of all, Setting Sun provides a line item estimate that can easily be adjusted to suit your preferences and budget as a customer.

If you want a detail-oriented contractor who shows up on time, respects you as the customer, and communicates well, then look no further than Setting Sun. We highly recommend Randy Scott and Setting Sun!

Setting Sun Patios offers excellent design service, great craftsmanship, superior communication, and an overall excellent experience! Very highly recommended!!!

Prior to discovering Setting Sun Patios, my wife and I spent nearly two years in limbo daydreaming how to effectively maximize our backyard living space. Within a few minutes of on-site consultation with Setting Sun Patios, their owner Randy laid out an amazing vision that would optimize our unique landscape. He made excellent suggestions to "lower the patio" to maximize the amount of usable level ground, while adding fantastic aesthetic features like a mini rock wall and a really nice landing step. He even advised on appropriate stone placement patterns to differentiate various sections of the patio (a Pergola area for entertaining vs a future fire pit area for chillier evenings). And most importantly, Randy communicated with us constantly throughout the process to ensure we were building the right design within budget!

All in all, Randy and his team completed the entire effort in approximately two weeks and they have totally transformed our outdoor living experience. We are very grateful for his services and highly recommend Sunset Patios to anyone looking for their stone patio needs!

Before we had our new deck built, I got ideas and quotes from several companies. Although his estimate was not the least expensive, I could tell Randy was interested in delivering a quality result. It definitely shows!

Communication via phone calls, texts, and emails was very good throughout the process.

The project took a bit longer to complete than expected, partly because of weather but mostly because Randy and his crew were perfectionists. No complaints from me on that score!

Randy hooked me up with someone who stained the deck and they did a great job. I have no hesitation in recommending Setting Sun for your project, if you want it done right. I've already lined them up for an upgrade to my patio.

Randy Scott and his crew are professional, prompt and deliver as promised. Randy does more than build, he knows how to inspire and direct a great design that fits your yard and your needs. Please look at my pictures of our screened in deck and extended patio to see the results. Our backyard became the envy of our neighborhood the day it was completed. 12 months later I brought Randy back (see the latest night photos) to upgrade the landscape lighting in our front yard. Once again, Randy exceeded all expectations. Cannot recommend Setting Sun any higher - and I rarely say that.
