How Do I Find A Good Deck Builder In Reno, Nevada?


It’s the middle of March and if you look closely, trees here in Reno and Sparks are already beginning to bud. That means spring isn’t far away, and many homeowners’ thoughts are turning to warmer weather and spending more time outside. If a new deck is on your to-do list for 2024, you’re not alone. But first things first—how do you find a good deck builder in Reno, Nevada? Golden Eagle Builders, a team of experience finish carpenters with extensive deck building experience, is sharing a few helpful tips.

Choosing the Right Deck Builder

We don’t have to tell you that choosing the right deck builder for your project will make the process far more successful now and over the long term. But with so many local options, it can feel daunting to know where to start and how to ultimately make your final decision. Here’s what we suggest.

  • Figure out what you want. Don’t panic if you have lots of questions and only a general idea of what you want. Just do your best to articulate what you’re looking for in general. You’ll need to be able to share this information at some point.
  • Research and recommendations. Once you know what you want, researching your options should be step two. In addition to asking friends and family, spend some time online. Look at websites and read reviews to assemble a short list of companies that seem like a good place to start.
  • Ask the right questions. Once you’ve assembled a short list, call the contractors to inquire about appropriate licenses, insurance and availability. Keep in mind that good contractors are usually busy. Your first interaction with a company is also a good time to ask questions about your project and narrow down your list to a few final contenders.
  • Collect quotes. Now it’s time to talk numbers. Ask the contractor for a quote on the project, which will include a face-to-face meeting to walk your property. Expect a written quote that includes all materials, timelines and payment schedules. You can compare these quotes and your overall experience with each company, taking into account your research as well, to choose the best deck builder for your project.
