Margaret P.

Premier Custom Deck built a beautiful deck for us. OwnerJim and project manager James were always prompt in responding to our questions. The crew were incredibly talented, fast and hard workers. We recommend without hesitation and would certainly use them again if the need arises. Can’t wait to use our new beautiful outdoor living space! Jeff and Margaret

We needed to replace our 29-year-old deck and contacted several contractors, provided them with our preliminary design for bidding and discussion. As noted in other reviews, Jim Velarde of Premier Custom Decks was very responsive – in fact he was the only contractor to offer an alternative design which was both true to our concepts but that also helped reduce costs. We elected to go with composite decking on a steel frame with steel railing. The construction team of James, Tito and Dan were great. James communicated daily with us about what was happening and the progress of the work and answered all our questions. By the end of the first day, they had built much of the steel framing for the first level of the deck. They are efficient and clearly know what they are doing. Construction was completed in two weeks (including a snow day) and it’s a great space. We recently had a July 4th party and everyone was very complimentary. We’re very happy with how it turned out and we highly recommend Jim and the crews of Premier Custom Decks and Outdoor Living to help you make your next deck project a success.

TOP NOTCH. Great to work with - embraced my ideas and suggested a couple new ones. Hard working, dependable crew that knew what they were doing. Worked from early in the day till dark in early January. Professional. Friendly. Very competitive price. We talked with 5 companies and once we talked with Jim we knew he had the job. I asked about steps. Instead of grabbing the opportunity to make extra money, he encouraged me to think about if I really wanted them because they would be expensive. I thought, I did, and I LOVE the steps. Would look no further.

Jim from Premier Custom Decks was great to work with, from start to finish he was very responsive to any questions and requests we had. We had a last minute change to the plans (after framing was complete) and his team was able to accommodate our requests. The team that built our deck was very impressive. The deck looks absolutely awesome. I highly recommend Premier Custom Decks!

Jim and his team at Premier Custom Decks could not have done any better. They did everything from working with the city and HOA to building an amazing deck and patio railing in a very professional, clean and high quality manner. We would recommend them to anyone as they go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied as a customer. 5 stars, 10 out of 10! Thanks Jim and team!

It went very well from start to finish. Rod's team was very skilled and knew what they were doing. They battled some snowy weather, but were able to get the job done in a lot shorter time then I anticipated they would. We're very happy with the quality and appearance of our new deck and would highly recommend these guys.

Jim and his crew did an outstanding job on our brand new deck! All of the great reviews we read online (before hiring this company) held true. They were professional, communicated with us throughout the entire project, handled all of the permit/inspection details, etc. The crew was a top-notch group. They paid attention to literally every detail and just did an amazing job. We absolutely love our new maintenance-free deck! I highly recommend hiring this company!

I had an older deck that needed replacing and was in the market for almost a year before I found Premier Custom Decks and Outdoor Living. Jim and his team are the best! He delivered ahead of schedule and worked with me to do what would work with my back deck and yard. The price was the lowest among the other companies I got quotes from and he was extremely professional throughout the entire process. The deck he installed looks like it came with the house and everything is geometrically appealing to the eyes. If you are looking for a new deck and want the best quality and low cost go with Jim and his superb team!

Our experience with Premier Custom Decks & Outdoor Living was excellent. They completed a total decking replacement for us. This included tearing out a 17 year old redwood deck (12’ x 36’) plus 16 tread steps all in very poor, shaky condition as the previous owners never cared for the decking. Premier Custom Decks & Outdoor Living replaced the existing deck with Premium Fiberon Horizons Ipe Colored Composite decking, Fortress fe26 railing, and Premium Kiln Dried Treated Top Sealed Framing including a new bead-board. All work was PPRBD permit approved, completed to code and HOA requirements, and passed PPRBD inspections. Our particular job required very careful removal of existing decking especially that which ran through 9 stucco support pillars 18 feet in height. I bring this up only to explain that we took, or tried to take, estimates from seven deck builders over two years time. Once they came to the site and viewed the deck many of those builders offered no estimate or stated the job was too difficult to accomplish short of a 100% tear down and rebuild (thereby removing the archtectural pillars, etc.) at a cost of big $$$. Premier Custom Decks & Outdoor Living took on the job, at what was actually a price in the mid-point between the other two estimates. Once accepted, Jim Velarde worked with us to carefully plan our job. He was very knowledgeable and made many helpful recommendations. He was committed to completing the high quality job from the beginning. His construction team was excellent, friendly and very easy to work with and more that willing to answer any questions we had. They were diligent and put a lot of workman’s pride into completing the job. It was clear they were very experienced and had “seen it all” and knew how to efficiently complete the job while cutting no corners on quality. They were careful in all of their tear outs and carried all removed materials by hand to the dumpster protecting our fragile sprinkler system in the process. They were self-contained and self-sufficient not needing to enter our house at any time during the rebuild. They kept the work area neat and cleaned up the entire area daily. We are very pleased with the finished product and can’t wait for spring to arrive so we can finally walk out onto a deck we can enjoy and feel safe using. Jim Velarde and crew delivered exactly what was promised and actually came in a few dollars under contracted price. It was a pleasure to work with Premier Custom Decks & Outdoor Living all the way through the process and I would highly recommend them for any similar work you may have.

PERFECTION! Professional, friendly, caring, dependable, hard working, happy, thorough, paid attention to the smallest of details, listened to what I wanted and gave a few helpful suggestions, knew what they were doing, etc. I can't praise them enough. We had 4 bids and Premiere won hands down! Their established crew worked for 10 days from about 8:30 till dark. We could have had them do the work while we were on vacation without any worry on our part. Without any hesitation, give Jim a call.
