Testimonials


This is a great company to work with. They made adjustments for us while we were working out the details and were very up front about price and timing. The company was very responsive to all of our questions and concerns. The deck looks great. We have gotten MANY compliments on the deck and expect it to last much longer than a standard cedar deck.

James, St. Clair

They were very punctual, friendly came and got their work done, even in awful weather. Very professional and we are very happy with quality of work. And were very patient with us and our many questions.

Dave & Becky, Crestwood

Mark & his team were great! Our design meetings were very helpful for us. Mark's team was always very punctual, friendly and they demonstrated real passion by giving us a well built deck. Could not have asked for a better experience! We highly recommend them.

Mark & Joyce, Brentwood

Found on Angie's List. Watched video, outstanding construction and superior then any contractor I have ever used. All grades "A+ + +"!

Kathy, St. Louis

The project went exactly as planned and scheduled. The construction crew was very punctual and professional. Communications with the owner was very good when necessary. If the crew could not be onsite due to inclement weather, we were notified the day before or early that morning.

We were most impressed with the workmanship and manner in which the work was performed. Attention to detail was impressive and we are very satisfied with the results. The project was completed in 2 1/2 weeks which is what we were told in the beginning (even with inclement weather).

Steve & Tammy, Wildwood

Mark Lingo met with us, listened to our designs, offered suggestions of material and designed our deck. Carpenters did prompt, neat, efficient job at job site and left area spotless. Best service personnel with impeccable professionalism I have ever used.

Eric & Gretchen, St. Louis

Mark and his team were punctual and professional. He ordered some extra boards and screws so we could trim out the lattice work we had done under the deck. Even though we did have to pay for them, that was a great convenience. This company will stand behind their workmanship and the products they offer, and that is huge. I would recommend them anytime.

Edward, Chesterfield

Tom, the carpenter, arrived on time & worked A full day. His attention to detail and craftsmanship were beyond compare. Cleaned up every day & spent time explaining details to us.

Paul & Nancy, St. Louis

Michael & Denise, St. Charles

Last August was sweltering-temps 100 degrees plus. The workmen worked steadily through the heat, cleaned up every afternoon and completed a fabulous deck.

Jean, Kirkwood

The TigerDeck is really beautiful! We thought all the guys on our job were so nice, did excellent work, and explained how the project was going along the way... This was the easiest project we have ever taken on and you really need to be commended for your customer service and high standards. We so appreciate how much time you spent making sure we had all the information on scheduling and timing of the project. You really made everything so easy for us…it was obvious that you truly rank the customer's concerns a priority. What a wonderful crew of people!

Kevin and Carol, Central West End

Delivered project on time! Great addition to our backyard. A lot of positive comments during our party!

Julian, Webster Groves

Mike is very knowledgeable. I'm very pleased with the service provided. I never felt like just another work order. Tom, He's the best! Very happy with the deck!! Thanks guys!

Tina, Imperial

It is obvious you have a skilled team! Within an hour of completion, we were on our deck enjoying it!! Thank you!

Raju and Theckla, Olivette

We've used our deck almost every day since completion. I get a lot of "Wows" when friends see the deck!

Mike and Laura, Kirkwood

The construction men did an excellent job - we feel above and beyond. All persons involved created a pleasurable experience. Yes, we would use again and recommend.

Paul, South County

We will definitely use California Custom Decks if we have another porch or patio project. We love our deck and porch.

Steve and Meg, Webster Groves

The deck you and your company designed and installed for me at my home is just GREAT. I expected a nice deck but this deck has surpassed what I expected. My house will probably fall down and the deck will still be standing. Tom Schriedel did an excellent job of installing my deck. He keeps a very clean and safe work area. If I had a question Tom explained and showed me why he was doing certain things. There is no 'goofing-off' when he is working. My neighbor, who by the way is jealous of my new deck, was very impressed by Tom's work habits, as was I.

Earline, Overland

Can't say enough good things about this experience from beginning to end. Every single person was professional, polite, and willing to pause and explain at every juncture.

Ann and Colleen, Kirkwood

Built a deck and stairs on our new home (12 x 14'). Honest, straight forward estimate; construction crew was excellent; on time and clean work site; very good workmanship; good follow-up by business.

Michael & Denise, St. Charles

Removed old concrete patio and built "Tiger Deck" in its place with no access to machinery to backyard. This project was extremely labor intensive. Sales person was very helpful and accommodating during the planning and design process. We communicated effectively by e-mail. Construction crew did a great job. Final product is beautiful.

Fred & Dee, Kirkwood

California Custom Decks built a gazebo. I was told it would take 2 1/2 days and it took 2 1/2 days! I wanted it for a party. They put in a rush order and I had it for the party!!

Carol, Des Peres

Custom deck built to replace existing screened in porch off the back of house. Excellent Communication!! Mike Came out and provided us with creative ideas did not pressure un any way. Andy was the carpenter ad he was friendly and approachable. I noticed he paid attention to detail and took the time to make sure things were done right!

Steve, St. Louis

I chose Calif. Custom Decks because of their expertise, which I could tell from the proposals I rec'd. My experience with Mike B and all the staff was excellent: up front, professional, on-time, friendly. They knew their job and did it well.

Dorothy, St. Louis

Mike made 2 on site visits to our home to measure and explain project. Very helpful & informative. Installation was seamless. Carpenters were great. Finished pergola, looks custom made and blends in beautifully too over deck. Craftsmanship is impeccable. Definitely worth the cost.

John & Jean, Dardenne Prairie

Preconstruction questions answered and gave advice that made project run smoothly and finished product much better. Work crews were efficient and conscientious.

Gary & Janet, Defiance

Fantastic! Nothing more to say.

Basil, Des Peres

Erected wood pergola which was custom manufactured by Country Lane Woodworking, New Holland, Pa. 2 men in one day. They obtained proper building permit; Country Lane took one month to pre-cut, stain and ship parts. Arrived on a Thursday and installed following Monday. Competent workmen. Helpful salesmen. Good product (Country Lane); reasonable price.

George & Virginia, Kirkwood

Everything went very smooth. Workers were professional and have done an excellent job.

Bharat & Hema, Chesterfield

We did not go with the lowest price but Mark offers reasonable, knowledgeable and competitive pricing. We choose him because of the professionalism he displayed.

Mei Lee, Creve Coeur

Our 22 year old cedar decking was in need of replacement. We wanted to make changes in the new deck configuration, size and materials. The old cedar decking was removed entirely including all old concrete piers. The new decking was installed using capped composite materials for both the deck surface and railing. We worked with Mike to come up with a new deck plan which included extensive deck railing along driveway, a ramped entrance to the main deck, a reconfigured larger main upper deck, a stairway and rail system down to the new lower level patio area, plus a new master bedroom deck. Mike also helped coordinate concrete work for the lower patio and worked hand-in-hand with the concrete company for proper timing and configuration to tie in with the decking. In the process of finding a good decking company, I found California Custom Decks very highly rated on Angies List. I also knew that they had done work in my neighborhood and were given positive reviews. I wanted to research the pros and cons of switching to composite decking and found Mike at California Custom Decks to be extremely informative and helpful. Our old decking was very large, on multiple levels and included a separate deck off the master bedroom. We wanted to redesign the new decking for improved functionality, decrease the lower deck size and increase the upper deck size. Mike spent a lot of time developing potential deck configurations and comparison pricing based on material choices. He was very tuned into our decking needs plus our desire to keep the cost down. Mike came up with several suggestions on the use/layout of specific materials which helped us maintain our budget.

After the old deck and piers were completely removed, the installation crew showed up every day on time and often worked long hours into the early evening. Mike's brother, Steve, was the onsite job boss and gave me daily updates regarding installation issues. The crew was always friendly, professional and willing to answer my questions throughout the installation process. They always cleaned up after themselves each day. Mike handled obtaining all the necessary permit paperwork from the city and arranged for inspections as required. Mike was always available by phone or email for any clarifications needed and often stopped by to check on progress and discuss the next phase of construction.

My expectations were exceeded by California Custom Decks. The quality of their work, their attention to detail, their desire to make sure that we were happy and satisfied with the final result were exemplary. Even when a callback was needed a couple months later for some minor adjustments, they were quick to respond and take care of our issues to our complete satisfaction.

I would highly recommend California Custom Decks to anyone looking for a stress free experience using a professional and quality oriented company for their decking needs.

Linda, Chesterfield

Job was completed within time promised. Workers were on time and were able to answer questions. Deck is beautiful.

Janet, Imperial

Mike B. was very helpful and professional. Workers who came out were very professional, knew what needed to be done and did it. Everyone we dealt with was exceptional.

Scott & Michael, St. Louis

We are very pleased with our deck & can't wait for the warmer weather to get out there and enjoy it.

Dave & Becky, Crestwood

Excellent communication, frequent updates, no nonsense. All was fine.

Jack, Ballwin

This was a big investment and we looked hard at other companies. Cal Decks offered more on the way of design that made significant improvements.

Steve & Tammy, Wildwood

Very satisfied. Cal Decks did an outstanding job. I am glad I took the time to research and I waited until I felt comfortable. I found a company I could trust with the design and the execution. Mike does an outstanding job!

Rick & Debbie, Ballwin

Our new deck is beyond our expectations and plan to enjoy it often. It was fun and amazing to watch Tom work. He's definitely an asset to the company. Mark kept in touch during the building process.

Paul & Nancy, St. Louis

I am happy with the results of the project. It was very stress-free.

Jason, Fenton

I love the new deck and have received compliments already on the construction and beauty.

Janet, Imperial

Thanks for everything! Every time I called (which was often) the staff was friendly and attentive. Mark was wonderful when helping me think of alternatives/designs.
