"If you’re looking to have deck work done in the Tolland area, Carl at Creative Decks is the place to contact. Carl did an exceptional job on our Timber Tech deck. He is a perfectionist in every detail. He is very reasonable priced and very friendly to work with. I would suggest you call him soon to get on his schedule."

"I hired Creative Decks at the recommendation of my builder to replace the decking and railings on my 30-year old deck. Once Carl started the job, he discovered several more rotten boards and supports than we initially saw. My deck is very high off the ground and certain aspects of the old deck and stairs would not pass current code. He was able to make recommendations and then execute the improvements at a very reasonable additional cost and still stayed on schedule.Carl's work on the basic structure was impressive before he even started on the Azek decking and Timber Tech railings. He is a meticulous master craftsman at working with these composite/PVC materials, which require their own techniques. Carl is a great communicator and made sure I was involved in all decisions over details that came up along the way. I could not be happier with how the entire process transpired from start to finish. The final result shows his perfectionism and attention to detail and is absolutely stunning. If you are able to hire Creative Decks, you will not be disappointed. "

"I can't say enough about Carl at Creative Decks. My house is on a small, lakeside lot so we had space issues. He was incredibly patient and thorough, and helped me design and build a deck that looks fantastic. Carl handled all of the permit/variance process, even zooming into a town board of appeals meeting to answer questions. Once we got the permit approved, he built my deck quickly and efficiently. Carl pays attention to the details! I would recommend Creative Decks to anyone. In fact, many of my neighbors have said they would recommend him- just based on watching him build my deck!"

Super Nice

"Carl is a true professional! It was such a treat to work with him on design and execution of our deck. He is super nice and pleasant to work with. He was engaging and thoughtful to our entire family (even letting our 8yo son be part of the process). We had a 20'x20' deck constructed that led onto a paver patio. In addition, there was a backdoor landing which separately led onto the paver patio. His work is impeccable & high quality. He knows the "why" to what he is doing and goes above and beyond. He ensured the transition of the deck/landing to the doorways/thresholds was done correctly. His communication was excellent. He was proactive in working with the patio company to ensure both projects melded well together as at times they were being executed simultaneously. He was always on time and the project went off without a hitch! Couldn't have asked for more! We miss his smile and interesting conversation. Thank you!! Love the end result!"

"To say we are pleased with our new deck is an understatement. You will have to look far and wide to find anyone more professional, meticulous, and honest than Carl. We enjoyed his company every day as he worked his magic building our deck. Thank you, Carl."
