Our 5-Step Deck-Building Process involves the following 5 meticulously designed steps. Connect, Consult, Design, Installation, and best of all, Enjoy!


It all starts with you scheduling your FREE consultation with your local Grand Decks office. Scheduling a consultation is simple. Call us or complete a request form on our website, and a representative from your local Grand Decks office will be in touch right away to gather preliminary information on your project, make sure you’re comfortable with our process, and schedule a time to meet. It’s really that easy!


At Grand Decks, we believe that your project is all about you. That's why we make sure to start the deck-building process off on the right foot with a friendly and informative no-obligation consultation. There are never any pressured sales during our consultations. During our first meeting, your dedicated Grand Decks representative will take the time to walk through your property with you and listen to your ideas, vision, and requirements. Our consultants will then conduct a thorough needs analysis to ensure we identify exactly what you're looking for and share some ideas from our past designs to help spark your imagination. Our goal is to help you visualize the possibilities and achieve the deck of your dreams!


At Grand Decks, we want to make sure you always feel in control of your project every step of the way. After we've had a thorough consultation and established exactly what you're looking for, you have two options to move forward. For those who want a completely customized plan, we can work with you to create a unique design using our visualizer tool. Together, we'll tweak and refine the plan until it's exactly what you want. If you're looking for a simpler project, we offer a range of existing Lifestyle Classics designs to choose from. No matter which route you choose, we'll provide you with an accurate price quote and a detailed contract and specification sheet before construction.


At Grand Decks, we take pride in our job management system, which helps ensure your project runs smoothly and stays on schedule (weather and material delays aside). Our construction team is professional, polite, and efficient. Your project will be completed in the least amount of time possible. We will handle everything, from securing the necessary permits to tidying up any construction debris left behind. Once the installation is complete, we will do a final walk-through with you to make sure everything meets your standards as well as ours. If you notice any issues, we'll address them immediately. At the end of the day, our goal is to leave you with a deck that exceeds your expectations and makes you proud to show off to family and friends.
