Designing Custom Decks: Our Process

Creating your dream deck shouldn’t be stressful—it should be exciting and fulfilling. That’s why we’ve created a detailed process for you from the initiation to the construction phase:

Initial Consultation:

We believe in understanding your vision from the get-go. Through detailed discussions over the phone or via email, we listen to your ideas, preferences, and goals for your dream deck.

In-Depth Home Visit:

After an initial discussion, we visit your home for free in-home consultations to understand the area and its layout to figure out any challenges.

Customized Design Finalization And Cost Estimate:

With insights from our discussions and the home visit, we create a customized design for your deck and provide an investment worksheet outlining the associated costs. You can choose material options, color schemes, layout modifications, and any additional features as per your preference.

Construction Phase:

Once you finalize and approve the design, it’s time to bring it to life! Our team of professional deck builders and installers ensures that the construction process aligns with the timeline and budget outlined in the plan.

Continuous Communication:

Throughout the entire process, we maintain open communication channels with you. Our cloud management software enables 24/7 access to project updates, timelines, and any necessary approvals.

Custom Designs For Your Personalized Deck

You can make your outdoor space unique by choosing from a lot of different custom design options by contacting a local deck contractor:

Multi-Level Decks:

With its different tiers and platforms at varying heights, multi-level decks provide an excellent outdoor living space. This design creates distinct areas for various activities, such as dining, lounging, and enjoying picturesque views.

Curved Decks:

Instead of using sharp angles and square corners, curved decks use gentle curves and softened edges. They have smooth curves that flow with the natural shape of your yard and look eye-catching.

Wraparound Decks:

Wraparound decks encircle the perimeter of the house and provide indoor-outdoor connectivity. This layout lets people relax on their decks while having a 360-degree View.

Pool Decks:

In order to provide a place for sunbathing and poolside activities, pool decks surround the swimming pools. Their long-lasting construction allows them to resist wear and tear from elements like water and foot activity. Our professional pool deck contractors can help you improve the look of your pool area and make it more useful and safer.

Additional Deck Features For Further Customization

Outdoor Kitchen

You can take your indoor cooking and dining experience outside with an outdoor kitchen in your custom deck. It enables you to cook and host guests at the same time with integrated grill, sink, counters, and storage cupboard options. To make it feel more like a home, decorate it with furniture like an outside rug and some plants in pots.

Deck Railing

Deck railings have a dual purpose: they keep people safe and give stylish decor to your decks. Consider using various railing materials such as wood, metal, glass, or composite to enhance your deck’s visual appeal. If you are thinking of having a wood railing, a wood deck builder can suggest designs such as post caps, balusters, or bespoke ones to spruce up your railing system.

Fireplace or fire pit

When the weather turns chilly, nothing beats gathering around a fire pit or fireplace for some extra warmth and conversation. Arrange soft furnishings on your deck, such as outdoor sofas or Adirondack chairs, or include built-in benches surrounding the fire pit.

Deck Inlays

Want to give your deck a one-of-a-kind look and feel? Deck inlays are a great way! These are available in a wide variety of patterns, including geometric designs, medallions, or unique themes, and they can be crafted from wood, composite materials, stone, or even metal. A deck inlay divides the area into different ones with matching patterns for easy navigation.

Outdoor Entertainment System

Your deck may be transformed into an outdoor theater or music lounge with the inclusion of speakers, a TV or projection screen, and comfy seats. Make it a homey and pleasant spot for stargazing or movie evenings by decorating with weatherproof furniture, outdoor carpets, and comfortable wraps.

Built-in planters and Green Walls

Consider having built-in planters or green walls around your deck or grow a wide range of herbs, flowers, and plants. You can use this spot to read or meditate by placing seats around and liven up your deck area with color, scent, and texture.

Water Features

Customize your deck with water elements like fountains, ponds, or water walls. Think of including outdoor lights, boulders, and verdant vegetation in the areas surrounding water features to make them shine at all hours of the day and night. At the end of a long day, sit around your deck and listen to the soothing sound of running water.

Decks Drainage

Particularly in areas that get a lot of rain or snow, it is crucial to have a deck drainage system that works well to keep the outdoor area dry and safe. You may extend the life of your deck materials and reduce slip hazards by installing drainage channels or under-deck systems to prevent water from pooling on the surface.

Hot Tubs and Privacy Screens

Add a hot tub or outdoor shower near your deck to chill down in the summer or any time of the year. To make it feel more like a spa, surround it with privacy screens, lots of plants, curtains, towels, weatherproof rugs, and string lights to create a cozy atmosphere.

Shade Structures

Outdoor living spaces can be upgraded by shade structures like pergolas, awnings, or retractable canopies, which offer protection from the sun’s intense rays. Depending on your preferences, you may adjust the level of coverage to provide either partial or complete shade for your deck.

How Deck Building Can Enhance Your Property


With a lower height profile, decks reduce the risk of falls and accidents. It is a safer option for families with children, older adults, and individuals with mobility challenges.

Versatile Design:

Decks offer a wide range of design possibilities, from the layout and shape to the choice of materials. You have multiple choices to customize the design; either choose a modern, minimalist look, a cozy, rustic feel, or any particular theme you might like.

Enhanced Living:

Adding a deck expands your usable living space and allows you to enjoy outdoor activities such as dining, lounging, gardening, and entertaining.

Year-Round Use:

These can be enjoyed throughout the year with thoughtful design elements such as covered areas, heating options, or seasonal accessories.

Increased Home Value:

Potential buyers often appreciate the added outdoor living space. A well-designed and maintained deck makes your property more attractive in the real estate market.

Entertainment Hub:

For hosting gatherings, parties, barbecues, and family events, decks are the perfect place. These include all the features required, like built-in seating, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, lighting, and many more.

We used ILGCS to work on my son’s condo. They installed new hardwood floors, new blinds, fixed the radiators, added a fan and light in the bathroom, new plumbing, and added a smoke detector. The owner, Deyan was great to work with and was always available. The pricing and great and the job was done in a timely manner. I will soon have work on some of the things we need done. I highly recommend them.

Deyan and the team at IL General Construction Services did a fantastic job repairing our ceiling, chimney, and replacing a door. We reached out to Deyan with an urgent request which he responded to immediately. The work was done quickly while every aspect of the repair was meticulously handled. Deyan and team were professional and demonstrated expertise throughout the process all while keeping in constant contact with us with photos and any updates. The final result exceeded our expectations, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We highly recommend IL General Construction Services for any repair or renovation needs.
