This second-story Berkeley Hills deck remodel utilizes Ipe wood and cable railings around its mature landscaping.


“Working with Maurice Levitch of Levitch Associates was a delight in every way. Maurice rebuilt our deck with Ipe Brazilian hardwood. I am an architect myself and have worked with many different contractors over the last ten years in the Bay Area, and none of them came close to what Levitch Associates offered us.

Maurice Levitch impressed us with his efficiency, his strong design sense, his craftsmanship, his excellent communication skills, his transparency regarding cost, and his responsiveness.

Everyone in his office was a pleasure to work with, responsive and proactive. His team is made up of highly skilled craftsmen, who were most courteous, generous, and accommodating throughout the entire planning and construction phase.

We are very happy customers and are looking forward to working with Levitch Associates many more times in the future.

The remodel and reconstruction of this second-story back deck features Ipe wood for the deck surface.

We work carefully around the mature landscaping during construction.
