Why should we hire Get Decked?

There are several companies who claim that they should be your contractor, but no matter how many companies you talk to, you can only choose one. Get Decked has devoted our entire career to building strictly decks, and we give our customers only the best possible options for your new project. No salesmen, no money down, we take care of all building permits and have only one crew that builds our decks—no subcontractors! The same guy that you talked to originally is building what you discussed—no worries and no surprises! Our floorings are of the highest quality money can buy. Our rails are not the hollow mess most of our competitors use, but handcrafted solid plastic that last a lifetime. We use only the finest materials available and construct your entire deck using the area’s most skilled craftsmen. We’ve won several awards for our customer service and supply the strongest warranty in our business! We did not write the book on decks, but over the past 36 years we have read it…and we guarantee that, should you choose us, you will be making the right decision. We truly care about what we do and it shows when we are working on your dream deck!

What is AZEK?

Azek is a PVC decking, composed solely of Polyvinyl chloride. It contains NO wood. It is a more expensive option in decking but its lower maintenance and resistance to staining, scratching, and fading is significant compared to other products available. It is a solid cellular plastic free of all wood ingredients. It will NOT fade, warp, crack, stain or splinter! Azek has had an awesome 25 year warranty but this past year they’ve added an Alloy Armor coating and have sinced extended the warranty to 30 years! It is more expensive than composite decking, since composite decking is a mixture of plastic, wood fibers and agents that bind the product together so it will be stronger and more substantial than just a wood deck but a wood-plastic composite is a cheaper product that doesn’t stand up like the PVC—and will most likely end up costing you aggravation and money in the long run!

What materials does Get Decked use?

Get Decked uses low maintenance decking and we proudly use top of the line Azek decking. A Premium capped polymer decking, made without wood, that provides unparalleled performance while boasting unrivaled design — all backed by a Limited Lifetime Product Warranty and a 50-Year Limited Fade & Stain Warranty”, (available in 13 different colors/grains.) Also available in the Azek Vintage collection colors and the new Multi Width Deckboards! We have used Azek for over 17 years and have never had a warranty issue! We’ve have tried every brand over the years and Azek is the only product without issues. Our rails are all custom made SOLID plastic…no hollow rail kits that shake in the wind and break down in a few years! Our rails are all custom made! We will also mix and match different products and colors to achieve unique looks!

What if I’m not sure about my budget?

We can help! Most of the time, we don’t need to come out to give you a good estimate of what you want us to build. First, take a look at our pricing page. Then, if you’re still unsure about what the cost may be and don’t want the pressure of an in-home estimate, feel free to call us with a general idea of what you’d like (including size), let us ask a few quick questions, and we’ll give you a price right over the phone!

How long does it take Get Decked to build a deck?

Get Decked has one crew! It will go very quickly! Some smaller decks may be done in just one day of construction, larger decks in 2-3 days. A monster deck with a screen porch may be 5-6 days! We will never leave your job and start another one! You are given a start date—the only thing that could possibly push your start date back is if your permit is being held up for some reason, or if we had a Nor’Easter! From that date, we will work proficiently and thoroughly to get the job done so as not to inconvenience your family! Mike spoils the Get Decked crew. At the end of the day, at his workshop, he will cut, mark, predrill, prep as many items for upcoming job as he possibly can to save time on site! The day we install the decking, we do not leave for the day until the rail posts are set. Then that evening, Mike and a helper and cut and assemble all custom rails for the next day! Everything is wrapped, prepped, marked, and organized for the next day! Very efficient! Mike drinks A LOT of Wawa coffee!

Do I need a permit?

Yes! Get Decked takes care of applying for all inspections and proper Building and Zoning permits. If you have a Homeowners’ Association, we will submit the HOA request on your behalf! We will need a survey or plot plan of your house/property to obtain a permit, however. It will look like a map of your lot and home with the measurements on it. This is to show where the new deck will be built and make sure it won’t violate any regulations. Please note, if you are in New Castle County and don’t have a survey or plot plan, your deed will show who did the original survey and often, the firms are still in business and can print out and fax or email you a copy, usually for a small fee. If you cannot locate one, New Castle County will require you to get your property resurveyed, which can take up to 2 weeks and will be an additional fee of $400.00 for a new official survey! If your home is fairly new, you may want to check with your builder, or mortgage company. Some Other contractors may redeck and tell you no permit is needed…but that is only true if they are only redecking. If the rail is modified, a permit and inspection is always needed!

What do your customers say?

We can supply hundreds of references for decks we have completed, some built yesterday and others built several years ago. Also, feel free to check out the Get Decked reviews on Google, Houzz, Get Decked’s Facebook page, and all of the testimonials all of their wonderful customers have sent in for our website!

What if I’m shopping around?

Getting multiple estimates is common when investing in any type of home improvement. Honestly, if the deck really isn’t that important to you, you just need a deck and you are all about price…Get Decked may not be for you! People compare contractors, but Get Decked stresses when comparing apples to apples it is not just price. Our competition uses different cost effective materials than we do and don’t go to the lengths we do in our construction. But the biggest difference in comparison with deck builders is not just materials—it’s the quality of installation. Some companies employ several crews of subcontractors with multiple jobs going at once. Get Decked has one of the areas most experienced crew of master craftsmen, and no other area crew has this much talent on a crew. So we think you’ll like our apples better!

Does Get Decked give free estimates?

Yes! Our company is very old school when it comes to estimating—and very different from all of our competition. We do not believe in salesmen. The person who is actually building your deck should be the person with whom you are discussing your project. No middle man or pushy sales people! With Get Decked the owner and builder sits down with you to discuss your new project. We bring all of our sample colors, styles, and materials to show you personally. We design several scaled plans right at your kitchen table and and give you costs for every aspect of your new deck.

What areas does Get Decked service?

Get Decked is licensed in Pennsylvania and Delaware. We serve Chester County, PA, New Castle and northern Kent Counties, DE and the surrounding areas, as far south as Dover.

Is there anything that Get Decked doesn’t do?

Get Decked does not do patios.

Get Decked does not redeck/resurface old decks or build on anything existing. Our competitors try to push redecking as it is a quick money making project for them and often requires no permit. If you are rebuilding a deck the entire structure has got to go. Why? We sell value—if you are about to invest thousands of dollars in this project, we want to make sure it lasts!Get Decked screen porches cannot be built on an existing deck or concrete pad. They will have to have all new and additional footings and beams.

Get Decked also does not repair decks. Chances are, if your deck needs repairs, it probably won’t last.

We do repair our decks—should anything ever go wrong with our deck, we stand behind it!

What does Get Decked do?

Tears down and removes old decks.
Builds low maintenance decks.
Builds custom screen porches.

Hal and Rachelle H.

We absolutely love our brand new screened in deck. The craftsmanship and the quality of the materials you all used are superior. I had no idea our house would be transformed so much. We feel like we do when we're at the beach. We eat as many meals as we can outside. My teenage children take naps outside. My dog even has his bowl outside! Get Decked was an absolute pleasure to do business with. There were no hidden fees. The schedule was kept perfectly and the job was done immaculately. We have lived in our house for 25 years and …

Patty D, Delaware

“Get Decked” just finished my deck this afternoon. It is beautiful and was constructed with true craftsmanship and detail. In my opinion...all I have to say is that if you need a deck and don't seriously consider this company, you are making a huge mistake. At least talk to them. . give them a call. My deck was a little under $10,000.00 dollars...and it is exactly what I wanted. Dealing with numerous contractors over many many years, I was thoroughly impressed with the way they do business. This will probably be hard to believe, but I have interviewed over 20 …

Dear Get Decked Crew,After consulting with several contractors and looking at projects from each one, I contracted with Get Decked to build my deck in Academy Hill, Newark, DE. I was quite impressed with the quality of your work and the integrity of your crew during the planning and building process. That was nearly 10 years ago. This past summer it came to my attention that the stair support stringers had rotten sections due to what appeared to be insect damage. I contacted Get Decked and explained the problem to Connie. I was greeted with the same superior service that …

Candy Koons, Pottstown PA

This was my second experience with Get Decked. Sixteen years ago they built a 12x20' cedar deck on my home, When I decided to replace it with a low maintenance Azek deck this year, I did not even consider another contractor. I knew they used high quality materials, completed the job quickly, charged exactly what they estimated, and had a strong work ethic. Because of this, I did not feel it was necessary to meet them to discuss the second deck. All selections were made via email saving us both time. Both decks were completed exactly as I wanted in …

Scott and Marianne

When we decided to replace our existing deck, we searched for a company that would assist us from design to construction. They had to be able to help us design a deck whereby we could achieve the most deck given code restrictions, provide quality craftsmanship, and handle any installation issues that may arise. We knew finding a company with the experience and craftsmanship to accomplish this would probably not be the cheapest. We know from experience, however, that cheap often leaves one dissatisfied with the results. We appreciate the personal attention given to this project. You helped us with the design …

Gail Griffin from Downingtown, PA

The Get Decked team is awesome! They know their stuff when it comes to decks. I wanted a deck but had no idea where to start or what options were available to me. Mike and Connie gave us a bunch of information and recommendations based on our needs and budget. They had answers to all of our questions, and were willing to meet with us as much as we needed to go over design details. They were honest with their opinions on what would work and what wouldn’t work, and they worked to stay within our budget. They were quickly …

Connie and Mike - thank you so very much for the beautiful deck that you provided to us and also for the extra work you did to put the decking on the ramp to our tool shed with the spare decking. You guys always go above and beyond the customer expectations. We received a beautiful floral arrangement yesterday and it was greatly appreciated. I can't say enough about the quality workmanship and the people that you have working for you - they are all very talented and respectful people. We need more folks like you providing quality services to the …

Steve Johnson from Bear, DE

What a great experience having Mike and his crew build our deck and screen room for us. The process was simple for us. Mike and his son came to our home to discuss what we had in mind from the floor colors to the roof on our screen room. Every detail was taken care of by Mike and Connie from permits, materials, and finally the building of our deck. Finally after a week of hard work on their part we have a gorgeous deck and screen room. I know we will get years of pleasure out of our new deck. …

The Epp Family, West Chester, PA

Every time we look outside to our beautiful new deck, we are reminded of the wonderful experience we had with all the folks of Get Decked! It serves as a constant reminder to us that there really are good people in this world, that you can indeed have a job done by folks who care, not only about the outcome, but about the entire process. Mike, who set the pace for the entire Get Decked crew, is a master carpenter and perfectionist. It was evident each day that he had “done his homework” the night before; he had everything ready to …

I have to say that you and your husband are probably two of the nicest people I've ever worked with and the fact that you build very beautiful decks is icing on the cake! You did it so quickly and with such skill I'm still amazed...I'm so glad I read your ad in the Sunday paper and decided to give you a call :>) Thank you again!

Dear Connie & Mike,We love our new deck and porch! Your workmanship is just exceptional! Due to an early spring (perfect timing), we've been able to spend quite a bit of time out there. We are kicking ourselves for not doing this years ago! Thank you also for the very special memory of Phyllis. She is in my thoughts every day. Hope our paths cross again!

“If it seems to be too good to be true, it probably is.” How many of us have found that saying to be true? Well, let us just say, Get Decked has proven that they are the true exception for that saying. Back in the spring of 2011 we had two other deck companies come out and give us estimates to redo our two story level deck using Azek decking. Both company’s quotes were for keeping the old deck support posts and joists, and simply installing new flooring and railing. My husband and I were not thrilled with the prospect …

GetDecked is an amazing family-run establishment to do business with. From day one my husband and I were very impressed with their professionalism. We live in an area where it is difficult to get permits approved by the township and GetDecked worked directly with them to ensure that the project would get approved. The timeline for completion of our deck was precise and to our delight was actually completed 1 day early! The GetDecked crew arrived to the job site everyday on-time and after each day of work cleaned up after themselves. Overall, the experience we had with GetDecked was …

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Jerminski:Our deck is wonderful and we are very thankful that we chose your company. The minor issues we had were addressed in a timely fashion and the workers you sent to fix the problems were efficient, pleasant and very professional. The problems we had with New Castle County inspectors not agreeing on the construction restraints (extra support piers) was a real nuisance and again your company rose to the highest level of customer satisfaction. Get Decked went beyond the normal acceptable building code and did the job to the complete satisfaction of New Castle County Inspection …

Thank you very much for your outstanding customer service and quality craftsmanship! We love our new AZEK deck and appreciate all of the time you spent helping us meet the requirements of our Homeowner's Association. It is clear that you have deck building down to a science. We couldn't believe the efficiency with which our deck was built. Thank you very much for your hard work. We look forward to enjoying our deck for many years to come!

Hey guys... Even though it's November, we are sooo glad we had our deck built. We're out there all weekend now, (and now with the fire pit) all night too! The quality is beyond belief; my neighbors have all made comments. We finished the landscaping we talked to you about, and now it looks like it was built with the house! We got several estimates, and we're so relieved we didn't go with the low-baller. Mike got it right away. He didn't try to over-sell us. We told him what we wanted; he gave us a fair price right there at the …
