How do I hire the best deck contractor in Dallas?

Thumbtack Editors

Performing an online search is the most efficient way to find the best deck contractors in Dallas. Going online makes it easy to compare ratings of the top pros in your area.

As you’re browsing the list of decking professionals in your area, pay attention to these details: the number of ratings, number of times they’ve been hired and their responsiveness. Identify the contractors who seem like a good fit, and click through to read their profiles and customer reviews.

You can also find photos of actual work done by the professional, which can help you gauge their quality of work. Look for photos of decks they’ve built for past customers so you can get an idea of what to expect if they build or repair your deck.

Next, find out what type of credentials the pros have. Do they have any certifications or licenses? You might be able to find this information on their profiles, but you can also do some digging online. For example, you can look up licenses by visiting the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation website

The last step is requesting free estimates from the pros you’ve short-listed. Give them information about your decking project. Do you need repairs or do you want a newly built deck? What’s the material? How big is it? When do you need the project completed? 

After you’ve received several quotes, hire a deck contractor who fits within your budget but is also highly capable of building the deck you want for your Dallas home.
