Retreat to Your Brand New Deck

If you’ve recently purchased a new home in the Turf Valley or Westmont developments, you might enjoy adding a new deck to your home, especially one that’s perfectly designed to offer stunning wooded views.

Our deck builds include only the highest quality materials, like composite decking that looks beautiful and is easy to maintain. Jeffrey Hinks, owner of BlueWater Custom Builders, is a well-recognized pro when it comes to Trex installations, and he has passed his knowledge of composite materials down to his staff. Our entire team understands the benefits and challenges of building with Trex and other types of composite components.  

If it’s a natural wood look that you’re after, BlueWater Custom Builders can guide you through the decision-making process, helping you to turn your preferences and desires into just the space you’ve envisioned. We are well versed in the unique demands of various types of wood and can help you to choose a wood product that will look great with minimal upkeep.

At BlueWater Custom Builders, we will design a deck that perfectly complements your home. From single-level decks that stretch out into your backyard to a raised deck that features steps down to a patio, we can help you to find an option that will work best for your home and will flow naturally into your landscape.

5 STAR REVIEWS FROM OUR CLIENTS

BlueWater built us a deck and patio almost one year ago. Brandon listened to what I wanted while making his design and captured my thoughts very well. The final product was even better than what I was imagining. The deck was built above and beyond our county code and I fell safe knowing it is very sturdy and will last a long time. Any small items that have come up, BlueWater is responsive and addresses the items with a professional manner. After the build, they did an excellent job cleaning up.

Morgan M.

Bluewater did an excellent job installing my patio. The initial consultation with Brendan was great. He was honest and not pushy. The installation occurred ahead of schedule, and the team was quick and professional. Minimal damage to the yard, which was impressive. The final patio looks great. Everyone says it looks like a patio form the magazines. Highly recommend Blue water. You wont be disappointed.

Zach J.

The BlueWater team was fantastic! From the initial consult to final product of deck and patio, they provided top notch professional service. Brendan was very attentive throughout the entire process and post installation. We are very happy with our deck and patio. The deck and patio crew were friendly, professional and did a fantastic job. We highly recommend Blue Water for your deck and patio needs! Wish they did internal project work (they are that good).
