Client Reviews

We’re honored to have wonderful clients. Here are some of our most recent composite deck reviews:

“Fantastic company. Salesperson Steve was very informative and was not pushy at all. When I had a hiccup with my financing and needed time to work it out Steve gave me plenty of space and simply said once I got it worked out to let them know and that they would love to build my deck for me. No pressure at all. And this was after they had taken a lot of information from me and did some leg work already. Once I was finally ready to proceed Steve made a wonderful 3D model showing me exactly what my deck would look like in accordance to my wanted features. Owner Phil then contacted me and he made the process painless. He took care of the association approval for me including submitting all the paperwork and following up on the telephone to ensure a smooth approval. Phil also applied for and got all the proper permits needed. Foreman Dan and his crew showed up and built an absolutely beautiful deck. I have received compliments from total strangers who were walking past my home for an evening stroll and felt the need to compliment my deck. During the build I always came out and asked foreman Dan questions and every time, Dan stopped what he was doing and answered every one with zero annoyance. Dan was always very knowledgeable and happy to talk to me. I even texted owner Phil on many late afternoons to ask him questions I had about what the crew did that day and Phil was more than happy to answer every single one, without hesitation or frustration. When Phil found out I just had a newborn, he purchased and sent me a thoughtful gift for my daughter to use on our new deck. It just showed up on my doorstep.  What contractor does that? This is the kind of company you are dealing with. The cost for the deck was very comparable with the other quotes I got from other companies and I couldn’t be happier with the process and the product. Thank you Phil and crew!”

Trex Deck Plymouth Michigan

“We did our homework in selecting a company to rebuild our 25 year old deck. We got 3 bids, we researched the companies and spoke to them at length before we decided to go with Phil Black and Custom Deck Creations. Isn’t it great when your decision turns out to be a good one? Over the years we’ve worked with many contractors starting with the construction of our home 26 years ago and the upkeep and updating associated with home ownership ever since. No one has done higher quality work or provided more outstanding customer service than Custom Deck Creations. Phil you should be very proud of the job you and your team do. You have figured out how to run a successful business, great quality products and workmanship along with first class customer service. We will give you our highest recommendations.”

– Kirk and Vickey, Plymouth

“We love our deck and knew after our first meeting, that we would go with your company. We actually canceled an upcoming appointment that was scheduled after we met with you !!! I want to sincerely thank you for all the hard work and effort you put in.  More importantly, how pleasurable and painless you made the process.  I get nothing but compliments from the neighbors about the deck.  It looks fantastic! We thank you for making our vision a reality and hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”

– Arvon and Janice, Ypsilanti


“My wife and I recently rebuilt the deck on the rear of our home. We selected the company Custom Deck Creations based on the customer reviews and research of the company’s performance history. Both the wife and I are very happy with the outcome of the build and rate the owner/builder Phil Black five stars plus. Our high rating is based on the following:

  • Customer service- 5 stars based on the prompt communication we received on any questions and up to date feedback concerning the status of the deck building process.
  • Project Management- 5 stars based on the service received on each phase of the project.  In addition, C.A.D.  renderings and floor plans provided information concerning pulling building permits to any changes in the work project due to municipal building codes. The entire deck building project was managed effectively and efficiently (even in this season of Covid19)
  • Building Materials- 5 stars the company uses the highest quality materials based on customer selection
  • Construction- 5 stars the construction crew is skilled and worked with me to point out any situation that might require my attention.   The new deck construction was well built and the workers cleaned up at the end of each work day.

The owner Phil Black communicated with me to ensure that any and all concerns were addressed, many times within the same day and certainly no longer than 24 hrs. after contacting the business office. Custom Deck Creations receives our highest rating for service and building.”

Trex Select Pebble Grey composite deck with white Trex select railing and drink rail - Canton, Michigan

“Custom Deck Creations was incredible to work with. Phil did an excellent job and was patient with us to decide on our deck design – which we changed up a few too many times. We eventually settled on the right design and Phil was very understanding of our budget for this project. We consistently were updated throughout the building process and the guys that did the work were very trustworthy and friendly. The crew was very friendly. We love our outdoor space and cannot wait to get more use out of it next summer and many more to come!”

– Chelsea and Vince, Canton

Trex Deck with Trex Shade Pergola

“We interviewed 8 deck builders and we are very happy with Custom Deck Creations. Our project was more than creating a custom deck we also added a 10 x 16 pergola with the pergola columns built into the deck railing. Our deck sits next to a high traffic walking path and you’ll be surprised by the amount of people that walk by stopping and taking another look. Phil is very meticulous in the do’s and dont’s in your design…very easy to work with and very professional, the whole experience was well worth our choice. We personally would recommend his team for your next outdoor project….Thank you Phil, Dan and crew for our custom deck and pergola. “

Your attention to detail resulted in a place where we can have many years of relaxation and fun. It was such a pleasure working with you.

Maintenance free composite deck with angled corners grill and furniture on the back of a home in Howell, Michigan

“Custom Deck did a great job on my new deck.  I had a complete tear out and replacement of my old deck.  They went through all the pros and cons of material and construction options with me so I could make the best decision for my needs and budget.  They also provided written documentation of how they were going to do everything – details on how the support posts would be set, on the structure, and on the deck boards, etc, many of which were beyond what the local building code requires.  And then they were able to deliver on what they said they would do.  The new support structure for my deck is rock solid, I swear I could park a truck on it.  Good communication with me throughout the entire process.

And the finished product is beautiful.   I went with a composite deck material.

They were not the least expensive quote that I had, though competitive.  I went with them because I wanted it done right and last many years, and I feel that they were able to give me that.”

– Dan, Howell

Trex Deck in Canton MI

“I met with Phil very early on in the process to plan out our proposed deck at our new house. He was able to provide 3D renderings of the deck in full color so that we could determine any final modifications which was extremely helpful. It was helpful to have Phil manage the HOA and Township approval process taking 2 more things off of my plate. The crew that worked on our deck definitely knew what they were doing and were able to build out our deck in 5 days and everything seems great so far. Phil made a final stop on the day of completion to walk us through the various components of our deck to make sure we were fully satisfied.”
