We Keep It Easy For You

From Idea to Implementation

So what’s the next step? How do we proceed? What does the deck design and build process look like? How do we go from “I want a deck” to lounging outside on it or hosting a party?

Have no worries – we’ll take care of everything for you. Call us today at (734) 931-6700 for a free initial phone call to discuss your project. Here’s an overview of our processes and what you can expect from us, and how to have a completed backyard retreat in as little as a few weeks:

Our Process

Initial Call

A free phone call to learn if we’re the right fit for each other. We’ll discuss what you’re envisioning for your project and any timeline you have for your new deck design. It’s during this call we can usually provide you with a complimentary estimate of your deck’s total investment.


An in-person consultation with our deck design team and all decision makers on the project. During our consultation we’ll provide to you:

  1. Material and color selection samples
  2. Multiple designs of your new deck in 3D renderings
  3. The full cost analysis
  4. A clear and detailed job description


We’ll handle everything for you behind the scenes, including:

  • All construction drawings and applications necessary for the building permit
  • Any homeowner or condo association approvals

Starting before any shovels hit the ground, our Project Manager and Project Coordinate will be in constant contact communicating with you all of the details regarding your specific project.


Here is where the fun begins. By now, colors and designs have been chosen, and the construction begins exactly according to designs, plans, and costs agreed upon. During build we’ll coordinate all necessary building inspections and secure those approvals. Payments are made on a job progression basis, meaning payments are due only upon major milestones being completed. The final payment is due only after our in-person final walk through and once the final building inspection has been approved. A typical deck install takes about 2 weeks.


Kick back on your new deck – it’s time to enjoy your new space! You’re left with a beautiful, maintenance-free deck you’ll enjoy for 25+ years. You’ll also enjoy an increase to your home’s resale value by 70% of the project’s investment value.

No one has done higher quality work

“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.”
