  • Ben's company does top quality work. We were very pleased with our deck rebuild. The Brazilian hard wood look amazing and will last a lifetime. The added value to our home matched his fee. They even came back 6 months later to apply another finish coat of sealer.

    Story Custom Decks did a fantastic job replacing our back porch and front steps and landing! The back porch was in terrible shape after 20+ years and the crew came out and quickly tore down the old porch to build the new one. They made the new one much more sturdy and safe for our family. The front porch steps and landing were also rotting. They built up our sidewalk and replaced it all very quickly. They were very attentive to details and made sure the job was done correctly. We couldn't be happier!

    When a tree crashed through our deck after a bad storm, my husband and I were suddenly tasked with finding a reliable company to handle the rebuild. After receiving several quotes from companies big and small, we were immediately drawn to Ben and the Story Custom Decks team. We could tell from our initial interaction that not only would the work be done to the highest level of craftsmanship, but that we would also be getting the personalized and focused attention of the whole team. Having to deal with our insurance was the hardest part of the process - but from the moment we signed our contract, it was the easiest decision we made. From demolition to completion, we could count on Ben and his team to be on site every day. If we ever had a question or concern, we were able to voice it directly to Ben and always received an immediate answer. Our deck was finalized within the original timeframe and to a level of quality that exceeded our expectations. We would recommend Story Custom Decks to anyone looking for a company with personalized customer service and exceptional building expertise! We hope to use them for all our home projects in the future.

    From the first time Ben came out to give me an estimate I knew I wanted him to build my deck! Communication was above and beyond excellent! He and his team communicated with me throughout the design, the entire demo and rebuild! Not to mention how high end the finish product is!! Ben made sure the little details were perfect before doing the final walk through with me! 5 stars does not do him and his team justice!! If you’re looking for a 10 star experience give him a call!!

    Two words: Dream Team!! Ben and his guys are at the top of my recommendation list when it comes to replacing decks and building fences(that’s what I had done), and whatever other services these guys provide. Communication was never a problem with Ben. I called for a quote and he came punctual to the time, that we had agreed upon. I had called several companies beforehand and Ben was easily the best option: price wise, availability, professionalism. My mind was at complete ease when they were walking on my house because I knew that I’d be taken care of! I’m most certainly having him come back out for more of my to do list, and will always recommend Ben Story Decks to ANYONE and everyone when it comes to this kind of business! You guys rock!! -Customer for life

    I sought several estimates before hiring Story Custom Decks to complete my deck project. I was so impressed with the attention they gave my project. I wanted a custom privacy wall added to my deck and when they came to give their estimate, I was able to extend my existing deck as well as add the privacy wall for what others had quoted just for the wall. I have to add that the friendliness of his crew and their attention to neatness during the project was absolutely above-and-beyond!

Building your custom deck ranges from $50k to $150k or more. This range depends on your deck’s size and the complexity of its design. For example, a larger deck with multiple levels or intricate detailing would be on the higher end of this range.

However, other elements can influence the final cost beyond size and complexity. These include any upgrades you choose to incorporate, such as an outdoor kitchen, a fireplace, a TV and sound system, built-in seating, under decking, a hot tub, pergolas, or landscaping and garden features.

Once we finalize the design, we move on to the construction phase. The building process usually takes between 3 to 9 weeks. The exact duration will depend on the specific characteristics of your deck. The size and scope of your deck and additional features like built-in seating or an outdoor kitchen will all contribute to the overall construction time. The weather may also affect our timeline. Our commitment throughout the process is to work efficiently, ensuring we maintain the highest quality of craftsmanship and provide you with a deck you’ll love for years.
