French's Custom Outdoor Concepts, LLC
About this pro
We absolutely love our new deck! It looks so much better than I was imagining. Chris was great to work with, and was always open and honest. I asked a good amount of questions and asked for suggestions since I wasn't too familiar with what would look best for our backyard and I never once felt I was being taken advantage of, or upsold. We priced out all the materials ourselves and the total price for our deck was completely fair, especially compared to other quotes we received for the same project. I will definitely recommend French's to anyone wanting a good quality deck! Thanks, Alyssa & Garrett CliftonJul 10, 2018Verified

Chris French provided excellent workmanship in building our self-standing covered deck. He went above and beyond what I expected to see with the detail on building the deck.....no short cuts. He handled all the details of obtaining the City permit and providing all the necessary HOA documentation to get approval. We talked to 5 deck builders before we choose French's Custom Outdoor Concepts. We would highly recommend Chris's company to anyone.Jul 29, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?At French's, we utilize a non-pressure, typically 2 part, design process. On our initial meeting, our designer will take measurements, pictures, elevations, and discuss what your needs are for the area. We then set up a follow up appointment that day, before we leave. We'll take all this information back to our office and "build" 1 - 3 different designs in our 3D design software. At our follow up appointment, the designs are presented, tweaked if needed and priced out for your review. If everything is right on track, we can sign that night and you are placed on the production schedule. If you need time to look everything over, GREAT! We encourage multiple quotes as well as complete agreement of all aspects of your project. Because at the end of the day, we want you to be happy.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We have over 17 years in the construction industry with over a decade specifically in exterior remodeling. We are a certified TrexPro installer of Trex Composite decking. We are also the ONLY member of NADRA (North American Deck and Railing Association), a nonprofit organization that helps govern building codes for the decking industry.
