Local Deck Builder
Select a deck builder with a positive reputation in your area. Deck, screen porches, patio, fence, and home improvement contractors that are local will be aware of the local building codes, terrain and weather conditions that impact the designing and building on a new space. Maryland Decking is located in Anne Arundel County and our deck builders know the local laws and permits needed for your project. Because we are licensed contractors, we complete all necessary paperwork.
Read Reviews on deck builders
Ask the deck builder for a few clients’ references. Previous customers can give you good insight of what it is like to work with that contractor. Another way to find reviews is to look around on social media and other sites to find online reviews to gauge how well they have done on other projects. We have reviews on our Facebook page and Yelp.
Verify Their Deck Building Work
Look at pictures of completed work they have done to see what type of projects they can do that might be similar to what you need done. If you are considering a combination of projects or have difficult parameters, make sure they can build your full request so that you can have it all done with one contractor. We have a variety of pictures from all our projects including decks, patios, fences, and more home improvement work!

Check Their Contractor License and Insurance
Make sure that your prospective contractors and deck builders are licensed and insured by government requirements. Maryland Decking can show you our papers on request at the consultation visit, so that you can trust us for your complete project.
Compare Equivalent Bids of Deck builders
If you get bids from a number of deck builders, make sure that each one is bidding on the same scope and quality of work and materials. If there are differences, find out why they aren’t the same. Maryland Decking makes sure to fully explain the materials and specifications for your project on their bid so that you know what you will be getting.
Get a Warranty from your deck builder
Your outdoor living space is an investment—whether large or small. Every deck builder should offer a written warranty to prove they stand behind their craftsmanship.
