Your Local Chicagoland Deck Builder

Barrington | Libertyville | Naperville | Palatine | Chicago

Platinum Decking was founded with a desire to bring the beauty of outdoor living to everyone’s fingertips. A deck can be so much more than a place to store your grill or patio furniture.

We believe your deck can be a work of art and an extension of your home. As your local Barrington deck builder, Platinum Decking will help you and your family to enjoy the beauty of outdoor living by simply walking out the back door.

With over 30 years of combined experience in the construction industry and overseeing hundreds of deck projects, our team has seen what works and what does not. For instance, staining wood decks simply do not hold up against our Midwest winters. Therefore, families often find themselves straining their wood decks every other year and spending more time and money than desired.

In conclusion, we believe Trex Composite Decks are not only a smart financial investment — Trex’s unparalleled beauty and design will empower you to enjoy your backyard like never before. 

Above all, we want to earn your business and the title of; your local deck builder.

Our Goals and Values 

Our Goal: To be the unequivocal industry leader in composite decking. We will achieve this by redefining the customer experience and providing a superior product within the decking industry. Our mission is to show families across the country that it’s as simple as walking onto a Platinum Decking deck.

Values: You can choose any contractor you want; however, you should first understand the contractor’s values. A company’s values don’t come from the final product; the show through the customer experience.

*Additionally, we believe one’s organization is only as strong as its weakest link.

*We’re committed to hiring personnel that shares our passion to satisfy customers and exceed expectations. Please notice in our many 5-star reviews that our customers often include our builder’s names in the review. Each and every one of our deck builders and crew chiefs is trying to earn a 5-star deck review!
