Finding A Great Deck Builder Near Me

What makes Platinum Decking different from the average deck builders Chicago suburbs

At Platinum Decking, our sales process is simple. It is based on three major goals.

  • The first is redefining the deck contracting experience and delivering a super product.
  • Second, sharing the long term value and savings that a Trex can bring to homeownership.
  • Finally, helping our customers create an outdoor living area you can enjoy for years! 

There are many different deck builders in the Chicago suburbs and unfortunately, the deck building industry is not always known for its customer service.  With that said, at Platinum Decking our customer-first mindset is the cornerstone of our organization. Each and every customer experience is important to us.

Schaumburg Deck Builder

Deck Builder Schaumburg Review -What a fantastic job overall ! I The company recommended maintenance-free materials (composite) which took only 2 days to order. The crew showed up on the delivery day to demolish old porch and installed the new one including railing in one day! They cleaned up all the debris and left the site spotless clean. I could not be happier. Professional, reliable and honest company. I know I will enjoy my new porch for years to come and it is guaranteed maintenance free for 25 years. Love it.

The only maintenance recommended for your composite deck is an annual powerwash of all surfaces. This prevents mildew or mold growth that can develop over time.

In regions of high humidity, frequent rain, and snowfall, minor mildew growth is common and expected. 

Although the structural integrity of your composite deck will not be at risk, power washing will ensure the color vibrancy and aesthetics stay looking clean and new. This is one of the major factors behind the superior lifespan of composite decking.

How long do composite decks last?

Decks built in the Chicago suburbs


Resistant to the elements, rotting, insect infestation, and any other natural cause of deterioration, composite boards are proven to last a minimum of 25-30 years – typically spanning much longer.  The main reason composite decking reigns supreme is its ultra-durability; not only maintaining structure over time but also like-new coloration. In fact, maintaining its coloration is one of the main emphases of the manufacturer’s warranty.

Each Trex deck comes standard with a 25-year fade and stain manufacturer warranty.

As a Trex Pro Platinum builder, Trex extends a 10-year labor warranty for every Trex deck built by Platinum Decking. As your preferred deck builder in the Chicago suburbs, Platinum Decking and Trex stand behind all of our work.

FAQ’s for Deck contractors and Deck builders

Trex vs Wood Decks

As Midwest winter slowly (very, very slowly) gives way to spring, homeowners begin to emerge from their houses like bears from a cave. Most take inventory of the new season with a quick look out the back door to a familiar sight. It’s not pretty: your wood deck, peeling, splintering, rotten. Emerging from underneath inches of snow for the first time in months, some of the deck did not survive winter.


How is this possible? You forked over $1000+ to a contractor. You spent a week staining it yourself. It seems hard to believe that four months of cold weather can do such a number on your deck. Yet, it has. Now you are left with a deck you can’t entertain friends on, let alone space to grill.


You begin the search: “deck builder near me.”


Many homeowners figure that this search will cure their woes. A contractor will show up and give you all the solutions you need.  It will only make you a smarter consumer if you can answer one key question before beginning your search: wood or composite?


Our 5 Step Guide will deliver answers you want BEFORE “deck builders near me” is in the search bar.


  • A wood deck is a very bad decision if you live in the Midwest. Snow, sleet or rain (mostly snow) accumulates on the horizontal surface. It sits. And sits. And sits. Illinois and Wisconsin residents will tell you that the snow that falls in October will be here until March. This constant moisture breaks down the “resin” (protective bubble) layer of the stain. Water seeps into the board and begins to rot it from the inside out.


  • The alternative? Trex composite decking. Trex composite is made of 95% recycled plastics, as well as other recycled wood. Moisture of any kind does not have any adverse effects on the composite. Many composite decking materials are designed to look just like wood, down to the grain. Simply put, the deck that goes under blankets of snow will emerge looking the same way.


  • Every spring you have new peeling, rotting and splintering wood. The vicious cycle of annually maintaining your wooden deck is not pretty. “Deck builder near me” here we come – and only once if you make the right choice.


  • The alternative: Trex composite decking. Trex composite is made of 95% recycled plastics and other recycled wood. Moisture of any kind does not have any adverse effects on composite materials. Certain composite decking materials are designed to look just like wood, down to the grain. The deck that goes under blankets of snow will emerge looking the same way.


  • Platinum Decking is the industry leader in the specialization of composite decks. We take pride in taking your wood deck nightmare and replacing or resurfacing with Trex composite decking. We are the only choice when searching, “deck builder near me.”


How Much Did Your Composite Deck Cost?

How Much Did Your Deck Cost?


This is a tough question to ask your neighbors and tough for your local deck contractors to answer because, much like many other home improvement projects, decks can be unique in both size and features. Square footage, framing, stairs, features, and more can all influence the final investment.


 You can get other price breakdowns and comparative costs at HGTV.

Does Composite Decking Scratch Easily?

Does Composite Decking Scratch Easily?


A question to answer a question: if you are a homeowner with hardwood floors, does it drive you crazy when you notice a scratch?


Those who answer yes are wise to consider what options they have when considering composite decking. Though experiences always vary, the general industry consensus is that Trex Transcend, the top tier line of decking products for Trex, is the most scratch-resistant material on the market. It is incredibly difficult to scratch at all.

The lower tiers that Trex offers, Select and Enhance, still offer scratch protection. However, it is very likely your deck will get scratched by plastic chair bottoms, animal claws and teeth, and more. The same can be said for products offered by Azek and TimberTech.

How Do You Maintain A Composite Deck?

How Do You Maintain A Composite Deck?


Chicago Composite Decking – Low To No Maintenance!

Arguably the greatest thing about a composite deck, compared to a wood deck, is the maintenance is on the no-to-low side of the spectrum. Generally speaking, a hose wash or power wash each spring or after a “dirty” season is all you need to do to keep your deck looking as good as the day it was installed. Additionally, moisture that sits on it for months (i.e. snow) will not affect the deck. Still, most homeowners shovel it off as often as their driveway.


Snow Composite Decking Maintenance?

Residents from Wisconsin, Illinois and the rest of the Midwest are moving rapidly towards composite decks, and have one concern: will shoveling scratch it? Not at all, if you install your deck with the right brand of composite material. Some brands will scratch if you aren’t careful; however, one industry consensus has been a very reliable, scratch-resistant product called Trex Transcend. Finally, you can always hire a company who provides that service or worker to powerwash your deck annually.

How Do You Clean Your Trex Deck?

How Do You Clean Your Trex Deck?


Trex Decks- Cleaning Questions

One of the biggest reasons why composite decks are a trending home improvement in Chicago is because they are a low-to-no maintenance solution. An annual wash is all you need to do keep your deck looking brand new.


Chicago suburbs Deck Builder’s Solution

When cleaning your Trex deck, clear everything off the deck. This may include items, furniture and soil from potted plants. Wet the entire surface with a hose and thumb. Grab some warm soapy water and a soft bristle brush, and make sure you scrub each board. A final, thorough rinse will have your deck looking great for the new season.


Additional Tips

Additionally, you can use a pressure washer. It is recommended you use a pressure washer on its lowest level – and a 3100 PSI or lower pressure washer is recommended. Use soap in the wash and, if possible, use salt water – hard water minerals may leave residue. Wash and rinse evenly over all areas, and rub the soap into each board with a soft bristle brush to ensure a superb clean. Rinse evenly and let dry naturally.

Does a Deck Add Value To Your House?

Does a Deck Add Value To Your House?


Add a Deck, Chicago Deck Builders!


In short: yes, adding a deck will add value to your house. What type of deck, how large it is, and how well it’s maintained while waiting to close are all factors that can change its added value. The biggest perk: a deck will add square footage to your house. You can add this footage to the house’s bottom-line total on square footage. That alone is a big win for some house sellers.


Materials Matter With Chicagoland Decks


The type of deck installed also makes a difference. If you are confident the house will sell immediately, or you are already in closing talks, a wood deck will give you the most return on investment. However, if you are half a year or more away, a composite deck is the way to go. It will not degrade at all and the ability to tout a deck that will last 25 years is much easier than a deck that will need to be stained yearly.

Is Trex Decking Slippery When Wet?

Is Trex Decking Slippery When Wet?


In general, it is highly advisable that you do not run on slick surfaces of any kind. While Trex has made some incredible innovations to their product lines in the past 5 years, make no mistake – a slick, horizontal surface that is coated in a moisture-proof sealant will be slippery. No matter who you find when searching “deck builder near me” this will be true.

That being said, the majority of Trex customers have reported that they have found the deck no more slippery when wet than a regular wooden deck. When dealing with any horizontal surface that is covered in water, take your time and be careful. You can always look into adding anti-slip treading or other materials at department stores like Lowe’s or Home Depot. You can also ask your local deck builder for suggestions.

What is Trex Deck?

The Basics of Trex


Trex composite decking is made of a mixture of wood and recycled plastics. Trex composite boards are coated on 3 sides with a sealant that protects the board from moisture, stains, scratches and more.


Trex warranties all products for 25 years. A Trex deck is expected to last at least 2-3 decades and is perfect for climates where heavy snowfall and rain are an annual occurrence. Trex boards are engineered to be installed and fastened side-by-side, so there are no visible screws.

Trex is considered the founder of the composite decking industry. It has three different lines of decking products, in addition to many other outdoor living area products. The top tier of Trex decking, Transcend, is widely considered to be the most authentic looking, matching a wooden board look down to the grain. Ask your local deck builder what materials they carry, and if they carry Trex.

How Much Is Composite Decking vs. Wood?

How Much Is Composite Decking vs. Wood?

First, the actual difference in price. This price difference may change depending on if you are buying the materials and building the deck yourself, or what sort of deal the local deck builder you hired has with his or her supplier. Generally speaking, composite boards will be anywhere from 3-5 times as much as pressure-treated lumber.


Second, the reason for the difference. Longevity, maintenance and amount of exposure are important factors when comparing the initial costs of composite and wood materials. Wood’s longevity is dependent on how well it’s maintained year over year. Annual or biannual staining, painting or coating is required.


Composite, however, is low-to-no maintenance. If you make the right decision when searching “deck builder near me,” a hose wash or power wash each spring will keep your boards looking as new as the day it was installed.

Can I Power Wash a Trex Deck?

Can I Power Wash a Trex Deck?


Barrington Trex Deck Builder Advice

Firstly, yes, you can powerwash a Trex deck. However, you should keep the level (color) of the power washer on its lowest. Keep the tip of the gun at a distance of at least a few feet. There are individuals you can hire to power wash, you can do it yourself, or particular companies offer power washing annually if you decide to resurface your wood deck with new Trex, or build a brand new composite deck with them.


Northwest Suburbs Chicago Deck Builder Tips

Even though a low-level power wash is always recommended, there are situations where you will only need a hose, a thumb and/or a finger to get the job done each Spring or Fall. Some Trex owners wash every season, some only annually. Talk to your local Ace Hardware, True Value, Lowe’s or Home Depot to get advice on whether tarping over the winter is excessive or useful.

Benefits of a Trex composite deck over wood decks

  • Traditional wood decks that will begin to fade and stain in the first few years. A Trex deck has a 25-year fade and stain warranty.
