With nice weather comes the drive to move things outdoors. But who wants to spend time reclined in the wet grass, dodging anthills and sinkholes, when you can comfortably lounge on a clean, level deck? Adding a new deck can beautify your yard, increase the resale value of your home, and make it more livable.  Although there's the option of undertaking this kind of deck building project yourself, it's difficult work. With short-sighted planning or inadequate materials, you could cause your home to lose value.

That's why it's advisable to choose good deck contractors or deck builders in Los Angeles County. The Prime Buyer's Report has collected the following information to help you find the best deck contractors in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Malibu, Long Beach and Redondo Beach.

Deck Contractors in Los Angeles County Perform Numerous Services

If you want your new deck built well, professional decking contractors have the specific skills to select the right lumber or composite material for construction of custom decks, stairs, porches, screen porches, railings, docks, and even gazebos. Aside from basic assembly, deck contractors can sand, seal, stain, paint and waterproof new decks.

Many of them also perform deck refinishing in Los Angeles County which is deck restoration and deck repair to make old decks look like new.  They are capable of stain and mildew removal, pressure washing, high heat cleaning, dry rot removal, nail setting, deck wood brightening and the application of new protective coatings. As specialists, deck contractors in Los Angeles County have a more refined understanding of the design and materials involved in deck building, so they are more likely to offer sound design advice and conduct a successful installation of new outdoor decks.

Questions To Ask Deck Contractors in Los Angeles County 



When it comes to decks in Los Angeles County CA, ask these questions about the abilities, experience, and credentials of the companies you're considering hiring:


• How long have they been doing decks in Los Angeles County specifically? (Different regions have their own unique soil conditions and weather that will effect choices in construction method, material, and finishes. The length of experience doing decks in your location specifically shows familiarity with these aspects.)

 
• How many installations have they done similar to yours, in terms of size of job, residential versus commercial, wood decks versus synthetic composite decks, etc.?

• Can the deck company give you names and numbers of customers who had a similar kind of installation done who you can call as references? (All deck contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had their customer references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)


• Will they provide a written estimate that is detailed, including the amount of material to be used, brand names, and product numbers?  (This is key because cheap deck contractors in Los Angeles County often only seem cheaper because they are using thinner lumber, less material, or inferior quality material compared to others which will not last and require expensive repairs and maintenance later.)

• How long will it take them to complete the work?

• What are the manufacturer warranties on the material to be used?

• Do they provide a written warranty for their labor, aside from manufacturer warranties?

• Will they check the local zoning ordinances to make sure the new deck conforms to code?

• Will permits be needed? If so, will the contractors be responsible for getting them or do they leave that up to you?

• Can the company vouch that all employees sent to your property are legal to work in the U.S.? (All deck contractors in Los Angeles County bearing The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)


• How do they determine pricing?


• Will they show you proof of active workers' compensation and liability insurance? (All deck companies bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Do they use only their own employees, or do they hire subcontractors, and if so, what are the names of those companies?


When you've chosen the best deck contractors in Los Angeles County for your specific needs, make sure they are properly licensed by the State of California. (All deck contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had their license verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
