Deck Creations Process

Explore

When you think about your outdoor space, we want you to think about bringing the outdoors home! Helping you create a space that is welcoming and inviting is our passion. Whether you are looking for a hardscape, pool, deck, porch, or other backyard addition – Deck Creations is here to help explore the process with you. Our team walks you through the many options we offer to accommodate your taste and budget. Once you have decided on the options you like, we create a rendering of your project. This shows you what your new outdoor space will look like with the materials you pick out! Once you sign the design contract, we move on to the next step of the process!

Design

The Deck Creations design process has several steps. Once the design contract is signed, we send your project to our drafting team who creates the plans for your new outdoor space! Before your permit is applied for, we send the plans to you to look over and make sure everything is just how you have envisioned it. Then, your drawings are submitted to the county you live in to start the permitting process. Depending on the county and kind of project you have chosen, it can take from 2-12 weeks to receive your permit. If your project does not require a permit, we can begin construction right away! During this process, you receive weekly updates and information that will be helpful before, during, and after the construction process.

Finalize

Once your permit is received from the county, all the materials are ordered and the construction preparation begins. As we prepare to start the build process, all the materials will be delivered to your home and your utility lines will be marked. Before construction begins, one
of our superintendents will meet with you and explain from start to finish all the steps of construction and answer any questions you may have.

Build

When your start date arrives, our crew begins creating your new outdoor space! Throughout the construction process, you receive weekly updates on your project, as well as updates from your project superintendent. Once your project is complete, we walk you through your new outdoor space and make sure everything is just how you envisioned it!
