Why Choose BigDecks.com for A Custom Deck?
On-time, Every Time
Your deck will be completed on time, every time. The work will be managed and performed quickly and efficiently by the people who know it the best, and they will be bringing their years of experience to bear to ensure that the timeline of your deck project is never sacrificed for any reason. When it comes to custom decks you couldn’t be in better hands!
Don’t Pay Till We’re On Our Way
The fact that we bring a decades-long resume to the job does not mean we are stuck in our ways. We are well aware the old way of doing things doesn’t work anymore.
Ever since the pandemic, anyone involved in contracting has become all too familiar with cutting a contractor a check for thousands of dollars only to have supply chain issues gum up the works and projects grind to a complete standstill while your money sits in the contractor’s bank account.
We can guarantee you that this will not happen with our team for your decking project. We have adapted, and we will only deposit your hard-earned money after the materials are delivered. This is our promise to you, and we make good on it. ($1,000 design fee due at contract signing. Material deposit of 50% of the project cost will not be deposited until the materials are delivered.)

Aesthetic Appeal & Property Value
This may seem obvious, but the sheer value that can be added to your home with the inclusion of a deck. Studies show that open decks and deck improvements recoup 100% of their cost, and a new wooden deck can recover up to 106% of the cost to install it when the house is sold.
The way we look at it, custom decks are a pure value add. You’ll be enjoying the beauty and living space benefits of it for years while you own your home, and making the cost back, or even turning a profit when you decide you’re ready to sell and move on. Having a stylish outdoor area to host guests, enjoy the weather, or curl up with a book is something nobody should deny themselves, and when the numbers add up like this there’s truly no reason not to treat yourself.
An Alternative to Renovation
Not only are decks cost-effective value add, but they’re a relatively low stress one as well. Especially when compared to home additions or renovations, adding a deck lets you increase the useable of your home with almost none of the hassle that a more extensive construction project entails.
With custom decks you can forget the nightmare of knocking down walls, dust-covered furniture, and constant rearranging. With nearly all of the work occurring outside, your daily routine doesn’t have to be disrupted, and the end result will be more living space for you, your friends, and your family to enjoy, taking all the pleasures of your home and combining them with the joys of the outdoors.
Versatile Deck Design
There are a ton of exciting design decisions to explore! Especially if you enjoy interior decorating, a deck is a great chance for you to express more of your personal taste and style.
We can custom decks with outdoor seating for entertaining friends and family with outdoor cocktail parties, and decks designed for grilling and eating, allowing you to cook without the heat and sweat of the confined kitchen cutting you off from your guests. If you’ve got a bit of a green thumb, adding garden boxes to your deck means you can easily care for a beautiful array of flowers without getting down in the dirt.
Prefer function over beauty? Setting up an herb or vegetable garden is a great way to have delicious, nutritious options on hand, only ever a few steps from your kitchen. Or why not both?
Plus, having an open air deck installed and ready opens the doors to so many more options for outdoor structures. A whole new world of design awaits you.
Decks, particularly our composite offerings, are significantly cheaper to maintain and style than the landscape they replace. Forget making sure your yard is clear of sticks and leaves before your guests arrive; with a quick sweep, your deck is ready to go, and our experts will work with you to ensure that the deck you choose is perfectly suited to your climate and needs.
Composite decking requires very little maintenance to keep it looking great year-round for decades.
By installing a deck, you’re not only adding value to your home and enjoyment to your life, but you’re cutting down on chores too! How often does that happen?
Another hidden feature of a deck is the increased storage space. That increased square footage isn’t just for entertaining; it’s functional, too! A good deck shouldn’t feel cut off from the inside of your home, but like an extension of it, and with our help, that’s just what will happen.
Whether on the deck or under it, having additional space to store tools and supplies means a deck can often fill the role of a shed, meaning you have more of your backyard to enjoy, and one less project to figure out.
Especially when working from home and balancing the newfound stresses of occupying public space, many of us have been spending more and more time inside, and it’s not good for us!
Sunlight is essential to keeping humans happy and healthy, and when we’re cooped up indoors, we can feel depressed, alienated from our surroundings and community. It’s even more important when it comes to kids; with tablets, smartphones, video games and virtual learning, some children may go days without setting a foot outside. Depriving our young ones of essential developmental experiences is a stark reality of today. At the same time, we worry about our children’s safety!
How to ensure the kids get to be active and run around when we can’t take the time to get them to the park or countryside? A deck solves all these issues in one fell swoop. Not only can you soak up some sun without ever going more than a few feet from the comfort of your home, but you can let your kids run and play while safely monitoring them from a comfortable chair.
Decks are a great way to make the outdoors more accessible and convenient, and that’s something we need now more than ever.
