Custom Deck Design
Custom Environments, the parent company of Decks USA, has innovated many aspects of
deck building as we know it today. It's only
natural that Custom Environments is paving the way into the future with the latest
interactive software for deck designing, structuring, planning, pricing,
sales and automated material calculation.
Let our award winning design team prepare a unique custom deck design for you.
Our decks design and drafting department provides Custom Deck Designs
per request. Since 1978 we have designed structured and built, or
assisted in building, tens of thousands of decks. High in the air decks, spa decks and pool decks
require critical attention to detail for proper weight engineering and structuring.
A successful deck project must first work on paper. That's why they're
called plans! A deck is not just a deck, it's an investment in outdoor
living space. An addition to your home that will add beauty, enjoyment and
value for years to come. Get it right the first time!

deck company to build my deck, why should I purchase deck plans or use Decks USA

contractors are great deck builders but come up short in the design department.
Also, the average builder is not an architect or an engineer. Just because a
deck is beautiful, doesn’t mean it will stand the test of time.
The vast majority of home builders in our nation use house plans produced by
design and structuring companies or use the construction prints created by an
architect. Why shouldn’t your decking dollar receive this same strict
attention to detail? In the long run, turning to a company that specializes in
this area can save you time, money and yield optimum results. We’ve been in
business for over thirty (30) years, let our experience go to work for you. If you decide
to use a builder or deck company and our plans, you can be assured that your
project will be built according to the high standards that have been
successfully tested in thousands and thousands of deck applications across

Construction Plans do I Need?
This will depend upon a few circumstances. If you are required to apply
for a Zoning and/or Building Permits each office will need at least one set of
plans. If you are going to use a deck contractor they will need a set of
prints. If you are borrowing money to build your outdoor project many
lending institutions ask for a set of prints to establish the value of the
improvement. Some communities have a subdivision review board which may
want to retain a set. Fortunately, because we include a thorough material
list in each porch plan construction package your supplier will not need a set of
