When we decided to replace our builder-grade wood deck on our nine-year-old home, we knew that we wanted to use a composite decking product instead of real wood. After doing a good bit of research,... we settled on Trex and their Transcend decking product. When I went to their website to search for local deck builders who use Trex products, Decksouth was among the first to come up. As a Trex Pro Platinum builder, I knew that we would be dealing with a quality company that could build an amazing new deck, but Decksouth exceeded every expectation we had. John and Shane did such a wonderful job on our new deck. They were friendly to deal with, helpful in explaining things, and all of their employees and subcontractors who worked on the deck were also extremely pleasant to deal with and did an impeccable job of cleaning up afterwards. Decksouth's prices were reasonable, too, and I feel like we got great value on our deck project. We could not be more thrilled with our new Trex Transcend deck, and we have received so many compliments on it already from our friends and neighbors. A Trex low-maintenance deck truly is the envy of your neighborhood, so if you live in the metro Atlanta area, I couldn't urge you enough to use Decksouth for your deck project.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
We just finished a porch/deck project with Decksouth and couldn't be happier. They are very professional from the initial meeting/quote to the project leader and all crew members. We were kept... updated on all details and progress and questions were answered quickly and thoroughly. We've already had many compliments on the project and would definitely recommend Decksouth to anyone considering doing a deck or porch project. We will definitely work with DeckSouth on any future projects as well.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
We had an awesome experience! Our entire backyard was renovated to include a pool, new landscaping, removal of old deck and building of new one with dry ceiling for patio use underneath. John Lea and his crew were a bright spot in a our long and tedious renovation! The crew was respectful, clean, and hard working! We had to change the location of the steps from the old design and he came in with a new design, thinking of everything from how much room we would have at the bottom of the stairs until the pool started, to windows being blocked, etc... John even got married and was gone for 9 days during our project, but he arranged ahead of time for Shane to take care of us. Shane was as easy and on top of things as John! The deck is beautiful and changes the aesthetics of our entire backyard! Makes us want to fire up the grill on the top of the deck and relax under the fans beneath the deck! I wish all companies were as easy to work with! Plan on using them again for Bahama shutters around the pool in the near future!
Referred from a friend. They are a good company that provided me with many options. I would recommed them
Thanks Decksouth for a job well done. Our deck is such a nice addition to our home. I'm sure much more enjoyment is yet to come. Highly Recommend Decksouth.
We recently completed an 1800 sq ft very complex, multi-level deck design, that includes a 9ft fireplace & a large hot tub. Dealing with Decksouth has been by far the best building experience we've ever had and a total delight. Despite repeated changes in the design (all caused by our relentless pursuit of perfection), including some while the construction was already under way, these folks completed the process in record time(15 days!).Their attention to detail is superb; no detail was ever to small. The worksite was immaculate every eve when they left. They minimized the normal intrusion & disruption these projects always create. I have had nothing but complements from everyone who has seen our new deck. Contrary to all my prior experiences, Decksouth always did everything they promised, within the timeframe promised & within budget. I can recommend this company without any reservations to anyone, something I've never done before! These guys are truly a class act !!!
Decksouth made it so easy to design and build our deck. They were professional, pleasant to work with and responsive to concerns. Stewart Clark, our representative, was knowledgeable and even fixed a water problem connected to the deck that we had been trying to find a solution for over 20 years. I highly recommend them.
Our Decksouth project started with a complete tear down of our original deck. With Johnís help, we were able to design a customized deck that we will enjoy for years to come. From the initial meeting to the final clean-up, Decksouth handled all areas of the project professionally with attention to detail, incredible craftsmanship and a courteous crew. We would highly recommend Decksouth to anyone interested in the highest quality workmanship.
Just completed a significant deck and porch project with DeckSouth and we're absolutely satisfied with the excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. John and crew attended to every detail with very postive attitudes and even suggested ways to improve the outcome at no cost. All that and they had the best price and stayed within budget (except for our upgrades!) We will definitely recommend them to others looking for high quality work.
Your probably tired of reading all the great reviews DeckSouth has gotten...and this one is no different. Great service, quality, value and crew that was fantastic. Special thanks to John, Miguel and Alex for doing such a good job and making my deck and porch the envy of the neighborhood.
These guys did an absolutely amazing job on our deck and went above and beyond our expectations. The sales representative was extremely knowledgeable and also stayed in contact and managed the entire process. The crew and crew leader were exceptional. They showed a tremendous work ethic and really went out of their way to produce an excellent product. You can tell that these guys really take pride in their work and I feel really lucky that we found them. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone and I hope they use our before and after pictures (our old deck was completely redone) as an example! Thanks Decksouth!
Decksouth lived up to their reputation. From consultation, to design, to construction, everything was done promptly and professionally. The crew respected my property and worked diligently. The end result is a living space we can enjoy and show-off to our neighbors. While the price was not the cheapest, I can justify every dollar spent with them. If you are going to do a project, save yourself some time, call Decksouth!
I was excited to have Decksouth out to my house. At first, I was concerned that my project was going to be too basic; however, they came out and designed a wonderful ground level wood deck. The final project is multi-level and goes around a tree. I have had many compliments on my new deck. Overall, the experience was enjoyable. They did everything from obtaining my building permit to cleaning the job site every day. I highly recommend Decksouth.
Replaced old deck and added a screen porch and patio. Great experience with the upfront planning and communication with the project manger was excellent. He was there contstantly making sure the message was realyed to his crew. All in all very, very good.
We replaced our poorly-built builder's deck with a Decksouth deck, slate patio, and 4-season room. John's vision, craftmanship, and drive to "be the best," is unparalleled and the finished project has been one that we enjoy even more than we expected. If only he built houses, too...!
We're happy with the finished product but the crew wasn't professional. It wasn't just one thing, but numerous items that led to our overall frustration. The company was receptive to the feedback and in the end made sure things were completed to our satisfaction.
Deck South came out and worked with me on my issues.

After receiving estimates from 3 decking companies my wife and I chose Decksouth the replace an exisitng deck on the back of our home. From start to finish John and his team did a thorough and quality job. The attention to detail (e.g. routed edges on the handrails, sanded edges on the decking boards, etc.)exceeded my expectations. In addition to looking nice, the deck appears and feels much sturdier than the one it replaced. Overall, I highly recommend Decksouth.
