Custom Deck Creations came highly recommended by several members of a Facebook group that I am in, and they absolutely lived up to the hype. From our first consultation call through our final walk-through, every professional that we dealt with was courteous, knowledgeable, pleasant, punctual and reliable. Our new deck looks beautiful and of the highest quality, and our contractor assured us that they will be there to stand by their work for years to come. This company definitely exceeded our expectations!

Highly recommend! Couldn’t ask for a better experience! I reached out for a quote on a deck back at the start of 2020, and was contacted by Phil right away. He was very easy to talk to and very responsive. He quoted several of my sketched ideas and provided excellent feedback. Unfortunately I had to put the project on hold indefinitely due to the pandemic, but 10 months later, we were able to pick up right where we left off, and Phil was just as eager to sign up for the project! His team was great, and the quality of work is top notch. Custom Deck Creations goes above and beyond for their clients, and you can rest easy knowing you’re in good hands. 😁

I could write a book on all the things they did well in our deck construction. Starting with the sales professional clearly communicating expectations along with the 3D rendering via computer so we could make changes in the design phase and see how they'd look. The best part of the experience might be the responsiveness to questions and the clear communication of projected timelines. Once the green light dates were set, they were maintained and only rain slowed things down. It was an excellent experience, start to finish.

Why Use Trex Over Wood?

Ask any Trex deck builder; they’ll tell you all of the benefits it has over your traditional wood deck. And the main advantage we find homeowners love is how low maintenance Trex is. There are no rotten boards to replace or staining to keep up on, which can get expensive in the long run. When it comes to cleaning, the process is as simple; a quick hose down is usually all it needs. Or for tougher grime, warm soapy water and a scrub brush will do the trick. 

On top of that, Trex is eco-friendly and saves 500 million+ pounds of plastic and wood from landfills each year. So you aren’t only doing yourself a favor by choosing Trex, but you’re helping support a worthwhile cause.

As for its aesthetic appeal, Trex offers multiple colors so that you can find the perfect match for any design. Choose from rich red undertones to dark charcoal and everything in between. And the best part is that they all feature a natural wood-grain pattern. Trex is also stain and fade-resistant, so you can expect your deck to look new for many more years than your standard wood deck.

Lumber and Trex Market Costs Update

Last Updated: 1/29/2022
Custom Deck Creations

A brief look into the current and expected inflation

Quick Summary

Lumber rose +28% locally from November 2021 to January 2022, and is expected for another significant double-digit increase impacting us in June 2022. We’re also anticipating a cost increase  from Trex around that  same time frame. Depending on size and material selection, decks are anticipated to increase in cost an average of $2,000 to $4,000 come June 2022. Custom Deck Creations is currently scheduling projects for April/May, before we feel these cost increases. Schedule a quote with us today to lock in today’s costs.

For a more detailed look into the market, please continue reading:


The lumber market continues to see pressure on the supply side. Canadian truck drivers are protesting COVID vaccine mandates, threatening to disrupt deliveries in Canada and possibly into the US. Fuel prices are also increasing. Overall demand for Southern Yellow Pine (pressure treated lumber used here in MI) remains steady. Mills are not sitting on a lot of inventory. Lead times from mills to dealers are getting extended.

Pressure treated lumber costs increased locally +28% from November 2021 to January 2022.

Lumber is expected to increase another ~+40% in June 2022. 

Custom Deck Creations is currently scheduling projects for April & May 2022, before we’re impacted by these increased costs.


Data from Trex distributors nationwide are seeing a steady growth in purchases even through winter.

Trex continues to see huge demand increases nationwide. 

Our Interpretation

Lumber will continue to rise in price throughout 2022. We don’t believe we’ll see pre-2022 lumber pricing any time soon.

In 2021 Trex put out 4 separate approximately +10% price increases. We believe more are to be expected in 2022. We do not expect Trex to ever lower their pricing.

No Inflationary Clause

Custom Deck Creations does not have an inflationary clause. Lock in today’s lumber and Trex costs with a signed agreement which puts you on our schedule. We will not charge you more even if our costs go up.
