    Deck Builders

    Any recommendations for someone that builds decks in the Des Moines area?

    Re: Deck Builders

    Have you thought about stamped concrete instead. I decided to go that route two years ago. My neighbor had a deck built at the same time. My patio still looks brand new and his deck has really weathered. The patio needs to be sealed a couple times a year. I have had more compliments on it and 2 of my friends did the same thing after seeing mine.

    Re: Deck Builders

    You can get a paver patio for about $10/sq ft. A Deck can cost $20 to $30 per sq ft.
    Much better bang for your dollar and less upkeep. If you need some design ideas, send me a message.

    Every house is different. Some need decks, some are ok with patios. Personally I almost always prefer decks. Just my opinion.

    Re: Deck Builders

    Right now I currently have just a small 10x10 (I think) deck that is about 3 feet of the ground. I was thinking of just leaving that part of the deck there and then building another level below it, like one step down.

    I had Brett Priestley build mine. He did an awesome job. I would highly recommend him. He has done a lot of work in Ankeny and all over the metro.

    If a deck is not maintained properly it will always end up looking like that. I cringe when I see a deck with paint on it. It is not hard to take care of a deck if you keep on top of it.

    Re: Deck Builders

    Does anyone have a composite deck? I'd love to rip ours off and replace it with composite.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.
