“From the first person we met with to come up with a design, through the communication with scheduling and the building of our deck, we were delighted with Stump’s professionalism and attention to detail. They took care of getting the required permits and their email communication was timely and responsive! We are so pleased with the finished project and are now able to spend a great deal of time outdoors enjoying it! I would highly recommend Stump’s to anyone looking for great quality at a good price.”
Frequently Asked Questions about Deck Installation Projects
Do you build with exclusively low-maintenance materials?
Most of our projects are built with low-maintenance materials, but we also build wood decks, including pressure-treated and exotic hardwoods, if a customer prefers wood.
Who gets the Permit?
Stump’s handles all building and zoning permits. We ask that the customer provide a plot plan of their property so that we can include it with the permit applications. We do not handle Home Owners’ Association approval, although we’ll be glad to provide drawings and
renderings for the HOA upon request.
What can I expect at a sales call?
At the sales call, your salesman will meet you, discuss the design of your deck, and show you the materials that we work with, so that he has the information that he needs to give you a detailed proposal and renderings. It’s also a time for you to ask us any questions that you’d like concerning our company and our construction practices.
How long does a typical project last?
Smaller projects generally take less than a week, while larger projects can take up to two to three weeks. During this time we keep the disruption to a minimum by sending out prompt and
courteous work crews, with no smoking, foul language, or trash in your yard.
How far ahead should I call if I want to build a deck by the springtime?
If you want to have a project scheduled for spring, summer, or fall, we recommend that you contact us three or four months in advance, so that you have enough time to meet with a salesman, review a proposal, and accept the proposal. During the winter months, two to three
months is generally all that you need.
What does a typical project cost?
Many of our basic low-maintenance decks cost between $10,000-$15,000. However because sizes, options, and materials can vary greatly from project to project, the cost of a project can reach $40,000 and beyond. A roof and deck project combined can cost between $20,000
to $45,000 and above.
Why should I consider Stump’s for my backyard project?
To answer this question, we encourage customers to look at our online reviews with Angie’s List and Houzz. We realize that to rise above the crowd in the construction industry not only requires excellent craftsmanship, but also excellent customer service. This should take place not only during construction, but with every step of the relationship with Stump’s.
