Find your Inspiration

PHASE 1 – Meet & Greet

It is in the consultation phase we learn about you and your deck project. We want to know what your expectations are for your dream deck. Our design team meets with you to listen to your design inspirations. We encourage you to show us pictures, magazine clippings, share your Houzz idea books and pintrest boards.

From this our design team will be able to create a mood board to create a cohesive design for your deck. As expert deck builders we understand that a deck is an extension of the home and also an extension of the life style of our client(s). At the Consultation we discuss budget, design expectations, and construction timelines. Our design team leader will create a proposal for the project and a contract will be created.

Poetic Design

PHASE 2 – Design Concept

Once in contract with our design team and we gathered and reviewed all the information for what type of deck you desire, we move forward with creating a design.

In this phase our design team will begin to create 3-D renderings of the deck so the client can see how the deck will compliment the clients home, but more importantly the 3-D rendering helps the client with material selections.

In the design concept phase our design team will visit to your house to take photos for 3-D rendering software so our designers can super impose the design of the deck with the home.

This on site consultation allows the design team to have a fundamental concept of construction constraints, or opportunities that weren’t discussed during the initial consultation.

Textures of Luxury

PHASE 3 – Material Selections

As custom deck builders we understand that material selection for deck projects are challenging, because of the vast range of products available to the client for their deck project.

Our designers will work closely with you and our vendors to explain all the different types of decking boards, from exotic hardwoods to composite, and PVC decking boards.

As equally the railing systems and accessories that compliment a deck design are also come in various materials, colors, shapes and styles and textures. We will provide as many samples as needed for you to allow you to make the best material selection for your new deck.

We encourage our clients to choose products that fit their budget, and design expectations of the deck.

New Beginnings

PHASE 4 – Design Approval

In the Design approval phase the construction documents for your deck will be completed and finalized as well as the total cost of labor for your project. Material selection and material cost will also be finalized. We create a construction contract for you and go over a construction timeline.

PHASE 5 – Permits are submitted

We work closely with local building inspectors to ensure that local code is met as well as the international building code.

Upon submission of permits we make final adjustments to the construction schedule and review materials before ordering materials. If materials are time sensitive and take a lengthy time to arrive we will pre order material during the design approval phase.

While the permits are submitted the site for your new deck will be prepped, and all grass and landscaping that requires safeguarding while construction is taking place with be put into place.

As custom deck builders we strive for a safe clean work site and we understand and respect the homeowners property. (We will not perform any work until a permit is issued)

While the construction of your deck is taking place our design team will be making site visits to ensure all specifications are being met. While in the construction phase the local building inspector will be making inspection to make sure local and international building code is being met.

In the construction phase we understand you might want to make a change or add a feature to your deck that was not implemented during the planning phase. If a change is made we will create a change order and all parties involved will agree to the change in labor, and material cost before any change is implemented.

We understand while constructing your deck you might have an inspiration or a new idea that will enhance your deck our design team can create new 3-D images so you can visually see the change order.
