Our Deck Construction Process



Initial Deck Planning & Budgeting 

We'll meet you onsite to hear all your plans and ideas. We can review a budget and will help you understand what options are available to you to create your perfect backyard getaway! Are you looking for a wood deck? Maybe a composite deck? We'll help you decide.


Demolition & Preparation 

We'll begin the custom deck construction project with the necessary preparations for ensuring that new and existing decking is set to stand the test of time. Rotted wood and joists will be replaced as all safety precautions are taken during this phase.



Deck Installation & Finish Work

We make sure that proper deck installation techniques are always used. We'll quickly put your deck together with our team of experts. Some decks are completed in as little as a week by our expert installers.


Finished Product

We'll be sure every final touch will be precisely done as we complete your custom deck. We can also assist with landscaping needs or awning installation if needed. Enjoy the summer with the highest industry-standard decking installation.


Marks Building Co. Is the Perfect Custom Deck Contractor for All Cleveland Homes

There are no doubt plenty of other Cleveland deck building companies out there trying to sell you on their services, but no one can match the attention to detail and quality that we bring at Marks Building Co. The only way you're able to stay in business for more than 35 years like we have is through the very best customer service and a quality product that people enjoy.

We know how much a brand-new custom deck - whether it's a wood deck, composite deck, PVC, etc. - would mean to your family, especially in those wonderful, warm Northeast Ohio summer months. You want the deck to look great, but you want it to maintain its beauty for years to come. With our detailed custom deck construction process, you'll get that and more (the same goes for our work with pergolas and shade structures, too!).

Best of all, we can build any type of deck you're looking for. Do you want a typical attached deck? We can do that. Maybe a multi-level deck, a wraparound porch, or a screened-in solution? Maybe a deck to surround that pool in your backyard? We want to hear your dreams for the perfect deck, because we will do everything in our power to make it a reality. 

FAQs About Our Northeast Ohio Custom Deck Services

Do you build decks out of different materials?

We know that a wood deck isn't what everyone wants or needs. Our team is full of experts in every form of deck construction, which includes all forms of composite decking (like Trex), PVC decking (like TimberTech), and other composite decking manufacturers, like AZEK. It all comes down to cost and the level of ongoing maintenance you want to consider, but our team can do it all.

What do I do about getting a building permit?

Our team will take care of that aspect for you. No matter the stage of the deck process, Marks Building Co. will be there to make it as simple as possible for you and your family.

Should I put a roof on my deck? What do you recommend for it?

We often like to suggest an open cathedral metal roof with standing seam. This helps complement the house and typically the new deck addition adds to the functionality of the space. Usually we suggest a complementary roof to the home because adding the contrast gives the home a pop. Metal roofs have become widely popular and carry a much longer warranty than dimensional shingles. Metal roofs are often more energy-efficient options, and provide more longevity than other options, along with less maintenance required.

What about deck lighting?

Adding lighting to your deck is a fantastic way to get the most of your updated outdoor space. Lighting provides both safety and wonderful ambiance, allowing you to entertain guests well into those great Northeast Ohio summer and fall nights. There are many ways in which we can incorporate lighting into your deck design, including built-in deck lights, stairway lighting, post cap lights, recessed lighting, and more. We can also offer many different types of decorative deck lighting, including torch lights, bistro lighting, and much more.

What kinds of privacy features can I add to my deck?

Want a little more privacy with your deck? There are many options at your disposal, from custom pergolas and lattice panels to outdoor curtains, privacy screens, trellises, and more.

Do I need a building permit for my deck, and will your team handle it?

The Marks Building Co. team will handle every aspect of the design and construction process - including obtaining any needed building permits - for you. We welcome our clients to be as involved as they would like in the design process, though!
