"Installing a deck may be the most cost-efficient way to add square footage to your house, and of all the outdoor home improvements except painting, it may be the most reliable value. Decks average $6,304 and generally recoup 104% of their value. That may not sound terribly impressive, but other touted outdoor improvements fare much worse."

"There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man's lawful prey." -John Ruskin



For the purposes of clarifying any "Deal" or coupon:
A "Deck" or "New Deck Installation" is defined by anything that is over 200 sf. and includes stairs and railing. Anything less may be defined as a Porch, Platform, Stoop or landing. Furthermore, sf. rates are higher for smaller items to cover set up costs; standard volume discounts on sf. rates apply to larger structures on top of any "Deals" or coupons.

"Exactly what we wanted."

"When we bought our home two years ago, the deck needed replacing. We obtained several estimates and design ideas, as we wanted to add a screened-in area. Custom Deckworks designed and built exactly what we wanted, and we have been enjoying it everyday since. The craftsmanship and professionalism of the team is a rarity in todays world. They showed up on time, did quality work, and cleaned up when finished, all for a reasonable price. We would (and have) recommended them to others. Thanks Chris, John, and team!."

"We are very pleased."

"Custom Deckworks built our multi-level deck early in 2006. It is big--well over 1,200 square feet. That is about the same square footage as the inside of our house. We love it because it is well designed, very well built, and allows us much better use of our back yard than our rickety old deck. We have had several family gatherings and parties on the deck in the months since it was built.

Chris was very easy to work with. We communicated mostly by e-mail on the design. He started when he said he would and made incredible progress every day. After about two weeks of work, some in below-freezing temperatures, snow, and ice, Chris and his crew finished the deck on schedule. We are very pleased."

"Pleased and Proud!"

"Custom Deckworks built a well-designed, handsome deck for us approximately six years ago. The deck, benches, planters and swing arbor are "tied-together" well and make for a very pleasant and comfortable outdoor area where we spend a lot of time. We have resealed the wood on our deck every two years and plan to enjoy it for many years to come.

We are very pleased and proud of Custom Deckworks' quality craftmanship."

"We Couldn't Be More Pleased."

"After letting another construction company that "knew all about decks" attempt to build our deck (disaster), we contacted Custom Deckworks. Custom Deckworks really listened to what WE wanted, then produced detailed sketches that showed every single component, from the joist spacing right down to the width of the railing.

Our deck cost to the penny what we were told it would cost. We couldn't be more pleased. We're adding on to our house and Custom Deckworks is the only company we will consider for our deck expansion."

"Very Well-Built."

"In the Spring of 2004, I got more than I bargained for when I hired Custom Deckworks to custom build a gazebo for me.

What I got was a very well-built, beautiful structure that surpasses all my expectations. I could not have asked for more."

Nancy Elliot

"It Is Beautiful!"

"Oh my gosh!!! What a change!!! It is beautiful!

You make a good team, keep up the excellent work!
I will call you when I am ready for that gazebo!

A happy customer..."

"Thanks again"

"Thanks again for the great work on the deck. I am so happy with how the whole project went, and with the finished product (unlike so many house projects).

I'll be recommending you to anyone who asks. If you ever need a reference let me know."



"Dear Chris,

Just a note to let you know that the "Sunroom Addition" you constructed on to our house is "GREAT"! We love to sit in it when it rains and listen to the raindrops hit the ground outside with the windows open. It is sooooo peaceful.

The insulation that you did during construction has also paid off. Last week when the outside temperature was 19 degrees, with only the French Door open and the window over the kitchen sink and the fan in the sunroom blowing in reverse the lowest it got out in the sunroom was 54 degrees!

You and your crew perform magnificent work. Keep it up and if anyone wants to look at our "Sunroom" we would love to have them come by.

With Best Regards for you and your family, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year"

"Above and Beyond"

"Our deck looks GREAT!!!

Chris & his team did an excellent job. They went above & beyond our expectations from day one.

Thank you so much, "

Update: 2012

Arkansas Code § 17-25-501 thru 17-25-515. Act 1208 of 2011 Summary:

ANYONE performing work at a Residence, when the project is $2,000 or more, labor & material,

IS required to have a license from the Contractors Licensing Board

starting January 1, 2012!


In most cases this does not apply to the Homeowners doing work themselves.

But if you hire someone to build your deck that does NOT have a license,

you may be breaking the law and will have very limited recourse in the event of a dispute.

If they don't have a REAL license, DON'T HIRE THEM!
