Not every contractor is a custom deck builder
Your outdoor living space is an extension of your home which means it’s important to research deck builders near you to ensure you’re working with a professional contractor.
The Chicagoland area has many different styles of homes. When searching for a deck builder, it’s important to find a company who understands the importance of designing a deck to complement your home.
What does custom deck builder really mean?
When it comes to building a deck there are so many options to choose from regarding material, shape, size, style, color, maintenance, and more!
Here are some questions to consider when discussing with a custom deck builder:
- What materials do you build with?
- What are your warranties?
- How much is the cost of the design?
- Do you provide just the design?
- Do you build benches?
- Do you build built-in planters?
- What kind of rail styles do you offer?
- What shape deck is best fit for my space?
- Can I do a combination of wood and composite?
- Is a deck the only option?
Aside from a deck design, a custom deck builder may be able to provide you with insight into other options for your outdoor living space. Sometimes a deck might not be the right fit for your outdoor space, for example, if your back door is low to the ground, a paver patio might be a better fit. Finding a custom deck builder who builds not only decks but patios is a bonus.
Archadeck of Chicagoland builds both decks and patios making them a great choice if you aren’t sure which type of project you want. Your professional design consultant can help you decide which option is better depending on your space, functional needs, desired aesthetic, and investment level. Chicagoland homeowners commonly combine a deck and patio to create a combination project.

Are you looking to add a pergola or roof structure to your deck design?
Some deck builders also build outdoor structures like pergolas, porches, or pavilions. If you’re looking to add shade, roof protection, screens, electrical, heaters, or more, talk with your contractor about whether or not they specialize in structures.
Archadeck of Chicagoland is known for its porches as well as its decks and patios. Because the Chicagoland area is home to 4 seasons, it’s common for homeowners to want some sort of shade or roof structure. Screened-in porches, open porches, sunrooms, gazebos, pergolas, and pavilions are desired in the Chicagoland area. A custom deck builder who also builds pergolas and porches allows you to stick with one contractor who understands the entire project.
