We first met Josh Franklin from Deckscapes at a local home show. After running the gauntlet of high pressure salesmen on the floor, Josh's approach was a refreshing change. He was the only one to take the time to focus on what we were looking for, how we planned to use our backyard and gave us some good insights, rather than just focusing on securing a follow up.We pursued quotes from 3 contractors and throughout the process, Josh was timely, communicated often and took our feedback directly into his final designs. The other contractors we evaluated really focused on their standard deck and/or screen porch option and pushed that pretty hard vs. what we actually wanted. We were able to find quotes that were higher and lower than Deckscapes, but I can say that the Deckscapes quote gave us the best value for our money.Josh's designs are very well rendered and allowed us to see exactly what we would be receiving, leaving little up to imagination. We selected Deckscapes in the end because they were very easy to do business with, worked with us to design exactly what we were looking for and provided a great deal of options that allowed us to pick and choose items from their quote to make the most of our budget.I have worked with many construction contractors in the past and I can say without a doubt that Deckscapes has been one of the most positive contract experiences. Not once did I need to follow up to see when they would be starting, when the crew would be showing up, etc.The build was timely. The construction team was driven to finish the work. While they worked long hours every day through heat and the occasional rain shower they were always upbeat and seemed to really enjoy their work. Mike, managed the project overall and Victor who lead the build team checked in often, kept a very clean job site and were great to our son who loved watching their progress every day.I am very concerned with quality and detail and was very happy to find a company that still cares about craftsmanship.We love our new deck and screened porch and after enjoying it for a season I can highly recommend Deckscapes.
It was truly a pleasure to work with the team at Deckscapes of Virginia. The project entailed a new Trex deck, patio with firepit using pavers and a concrete pad for an outdoor home gym. Gene, the sales contact really helped to scope out the possibilities with reasonable options and both the deck (Victor) and patio crews (Kim) were attentive to detail and conscientious about every aspect of the project. When we encountered an issue about a potential low spot in an area they were excavating, the owner of the company came to our house at 10pm to help us create a short term workaround to prevent any water pooling in the area as rain was forecasted in the morning. The project managers (Jay and Kimi) stayed in contact throughout the project and were really great to work with. I appreciated having an open and proactive team on this large project and would recommend them without hesitation.
We were very impressed with the designer. The building was very fast and efficient. They were considerate of our property. It looks great.
Deckscapes did a great job on the trex deck and non attached roof structure. Went up quickly, quality construction, looks fantastic. The outdoor kitchen and bar area took a bit longer than expected, but it came out great as well. The company was very flexible to get project done to our expectations and were willing to work with us as any issues occurred or changes needed to happen.
Deckscapes did an amazing job start to finish. From my initial meeting with Josh (the owner) to the final day of the installation of the screens, they were amazing to work with. Josh made some great design choices that I had not even thought of like including an outside deck with the screened in porch. Mike, the porch and screen supervisor, kept me in the loop every step of the way and returned my calls and texts right away - even on the weekends. He went out of his way to help me with any issues that crept up during the process and even helped me arrange the furnture on the porch when it was done. He also helped with a few small projects that had nothing to do with this project.Victor, the job site supervisor, was amazing and extremely friendly and hard working. Everyone they sent to work on this job was friendly and respectful. From start to finish, they were professtional and respectful of my house, my neighbors and my time. Everyone around me has porch envy and is asking me for a referral.Kim did an amazing job with the driveway and was really helpful with a last minute change which helped me figure out how best to tie the porch in with the driveway and was able to do it without holding anything up.I love my new porch and driveway and could not have asked for a better company to work with. They did a fantastic job, quickly and professionally. I would recommend them to all my friends. A++++
I was impressed with DeckScapes from start to finish. I had a basic plan of what I wanted from the beginning, but I got the design help I needed from the initial sales associate (who I believe is also a landscape architect).
The construction manager was a great communicator throughout the work-phase of the project, letting me know how things were going, explaining any delays, always asking for feedback or for any issues I had detected. Any issues I detected (almost all minor) were addressed in a prompt minor and my wife and I are very pleased with the end result.
This company is very professional and very concerned with making sure you are happy and will be spouting their praises after they complete the job. They want good word-of-mouth and are willing to put in the effort to get it. Highly recommended.

Deckscapes just finished adding a y to our house. Their staff and crew were very professional, knowledgeable, and showed true craftsmanship. The quality of the work far exceeded my expectations. They were also finished in no time. I highly recommend them!
Deckscapes created a beautiful faux stone wall around my living room fireplace and installed the mantle, as well. They were very meticulous, took the time to plan the job and create the piece we wanted. Their people are very nice and go the extra mile to ensure the job is done right. They even cleaned up the dust caused from the construction. Very considerate.Thank you for the great job and our beautiful feature wall, Deckscapes!
Deckscapes management, sales staff, project manager, and the entire on-site working staff were professional, informative, and polite throughout the construction. We did nothing but watch the deck get built in a very professional and timely manner. Deckscapes handled all of the necessary building permits through Fairfax County, Virginia, and we did not have to deal with this aspect of the building at all.The Deck was built to every one of our specifications; it was put together in a very detailed manner with no shortcuts taken.TREX decks although expensive are well worth it, and if you plan on having one built and you live in the Northern Virginia area, I suggest yoy get in touch with Deckscapes. A great Company that backs up its advertisements with great work!Wayne GatewoodUSMC (Ret)
My wife and I wanted to let you know how pleased we were with your crew. Of course we expected the deck to look fantastic, but the added bonus in this addition was the dedication and professionalism that the workers demonstrated every day that they were working here. Each one of them performed his tasks above and beyond. Please convey to the crew how happy we were to have them build our outstanding deck. Sincerely. J Toner
Deckscapes... Again. thank you! The deck and patio are beautiful.
Thank you so much for a great job on our deck! We couldn't be more pleased! Thank you for finishing up everything so quickly. Your crew did a great, great job!
The workmanship is top-notch. The design is striking! The crews for deck & patio were excellent craftsmen, very pleasant & professional. Each day they left the job site in our backyard with all tools put away & no rubbish (only the decking materials). Highly recommend!
I would strongly recommend Deckscapes. Kevin was very professional and patiently explained every detail of the project up front. He always answered his phone, and responded to any questions or concerns immediately. The guys that actually built the deck were always punctual, pleasant, professional, and worked diligently on the hottest days of the summer. The finished product is beautiful and well constructed. You can really tell the quality of the craftsmanship.
Overall, the quality, timeliness and results of this project exceeded our expectations. This company will be top of our list for future projects.
,..we have a wonderful deck that everyone loves - ourselves, guests and neighbors.
The Deckscapes crew handled the job extremely well and the deck turned out beautiful. Once construction started, the crew was fully dedicated to the job and they notified me ahead of time about the two days when they would have to be away from the job. After talking to the crews and seeing them work, it was clear that they knew their trade and they weren't going to just slap the deck together. The build quality and precision are excellent.
