What is DeckAdvisor.com?

Building a modern deck these days isn’t easy. Most “carpenters” think building a deck is simple. Sure, nailing 2×10’s together is not rocket science, but there is so much more to designing and building a deck these days! Your average carpenter really has no clue because ignorance is bliss. There are thousands of decking and railing products on the market right now. How the heck are you, the consumer, supposed to decide what to install? I can tell you this much, your average general contractor probably knows less than you do about alternative deck and rail products like composites and PVC and taking an uninformed recommendation can be a very costly mistake. I can’t tell you how many times this happens.
How do I know? Because I see these guys at the supply house asking incredibly stupid (basic) questions about products they are trying to BS their way through signing a contract with some unsuspecting client. Do you really want to write a check to contractor that can’t even pronounce the name of the product properly? It pains me to witness this and I see it all the time.

We specialize in designing and building custom decks using the most cutting edge products and techniques.

Let’s put it to you this way….
If you had a brain tumor, would you go to a general practitioner or a brain surgeon who has performed the surgery you need hundreds of times and is experienced? Well, what we realized a long time ago is that a majority of the issues we hear about are directly related to homeowners unknowingly putting their trust (and money) in a contractor was ignorant. We don’t want that to happen ever again. You don’t deserve it.
