Initial Consultation

The first step in the deck installation process involves a consultation with our expert team at Adept Builders & Design. During this meeting, we discuss your vision, needs, and preferences for your new deck. We’ll also assess the potential site for the deck. This step is crucial as it helps identify any potential challenges that may arise during installation. We’ll consider aspects like the structure of your home, the terrain of your yard, and your lifestyle to ensure that the deck design we propose suits you perfectly.

We’ll ask you several questions during the consultation, such as the purpose of the deck, your desired materials, and your budget. Understanding these factors allows us to design a deck that will serve you well for many years. The consultation phase is also an excellent opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have about the process.

Design Phase

Once we have a clear understanding of your needs, we move to the design phase. During this stage, our designers will draft a detailed plan that outlines the deck’s layout, the materials to be used, and a timeline for completion. The design will incorporate all of your specifications, and we’ll ensure it complements your home’s existing architecture and landscaping.

We take care to design a deck that is functional, beautiful, and durable. Whether you’re looking for a simple, minimalist design or a complex, multi-level structure, we have the expertise to bring your vision to life.

Once the initial design is complete, we’ll review the plans with you. This is a collaborative process, and we encourage you to provide feedback. We’ll make any necessary adjustments until you’re completely satisfied with the design.

Getting Permits

With the design in place, we’ll move on to the administrative part of the process. Depending on your locality, specific permits may be required before construction can begin. Navigating through the permit application process can be complex and time-consuming, but you won’t have to worry about it. As part of our comprehensive service, we handle all the permit applications, ensuring all necessary documentation is in order and adhering to all local building codes and regulations.


After obtaining all necessary permits, our team of skilled craftsmen will start building your deck according to the agreed-upon design. Our team follows strict safety standards to ensure the safety of both our workers and your property.

We’re committed to delivering a high-quality deck that stands the test of time. We do this by using only high-quality materials and employing tried-and-true building techniques. Throughout the construction process, we’ll keep you updated on our progress.

We understand that construction projects can be disruptive, so we strive to minimize this as much as possible. We maintain a clean and safe work site, and we aim to complete the project efficiently without compromising on quality.

Quality Assurance and Aftercare

Once the construction phase is complete, we don’t just pack up and leave. We conduct a thorough quality assurance check to ensure that everything has been done correctly and to the highest standards. We walk you through the finished project, ensuring every aspect meets your expectations.

After your approval, we provide you with aftercare instructions to help you maintain your new deck’s beauty and longevity. These may include cleaning tips, sealing recommendations, and advice on minor maintenance tasks you can perform to keep your deck in perfect condition. We’re also available for any questions you might have after the installation.

Moreover, if you require it, our team is available for ongoing maintenance and support, ensuring your deck remains in top condition for years to come.

At Adept Builders & Design, we understand that adding a deck is a significant investment. Therefore, we’re committed to providing transparent, high-quality service at every step of the way. We believe in forming lasting relationships with our clients, and your satisfaction is our top priority.
