Frequently Asked Questions
About Decks


What is the best material to build a deck?

Our philosophy is there is no single right answer for every homeowner. Some Colorado Springs deck builders will only push one type of material. We’d rather talk to you, see the space, and make smart, personalized recommendations.
We certainly have some materials we think make for better decks in Colorado Springs, but factors like budget and what will best match your home all play a role in helping you decide what is best for you. Our strongest advice is to talk to experts who are more interested in educating you on your choices than on selling you on one type of deck.

I know what I want and what I don’t want in a deck. How custom can you make my deck?

Completely custom. Our owner Kevin McGee is a Master Designer and has tons of formal training combined with decades of practical experience. Many Colorado Springs deck contractors have very little design experience. They work from a few set templates and then offer a couple of modifications and call it “custom.”
With us you get a fully custom, completely professional design done in AutoCad.

Who do I contact if I have a question or concern as you build my deck?

You will have direct communication with the owner Kevin McGee. If you have ever had an experience with a home improvement company where you “got the run around” when you had a concern or problem, get ready for the exact opposite experience.
There is never any question with Decks R Us. You’ll deal directly with the owner on any questions or concerns and you’ll get a fast response.

How long will it take to install my deck?

This of course depends on the size and scope of the project. Here is one thing we can absolutely promise about your installation: we will not rush or take any shortcuts. We do NOT believe in over-scheduling jobs and then rushing from one job to the next in order to squeeze out more profits.
Your Colorado Springs deck will be built to the highest standards and we never cut corners just to finish quicker.

How much does it cost to design and install a deck?

There are way too many variables to give you a single answer. For some a deck will be a small outdoor sitting area; for others it will be two-tiered with enough room to throw a good-sized party. And everything in between.

Besides square footage, the materials you choose will impact the price. In general, ultra-low maintenance decking costs more than wood decking. We can give you pricing options during our free consultation.

What add-ons can I get for my deck?
