"Jim worked with us to design and build a patio cover. We were sold initially by the efficient and quick bidding process. The finished design is just like we envisioned. The crew was friendly and skilled. Nobody in the company was satisfied with the job until we were were satisfied. Please consider this the highest recommendation for Decks by Design."
—Debi and Ted


Thank you so much for all your help with every thing from the initial stage of design and budget to deck maintenance! One year later and we are still as happy with our deck as we were when it was newly finished! Your professionalism is second to none, your crews were very courteous and extremely hard workers. I don't say this often but your company was a joy to work with. I recommend Decks by Design to anyone that is in need of a new deck especially family and friends. I can't say enough good things about you!! I appreciate that you are responsive to questions or help that I might need even now since the deck has been done. We don't feel like you have "dumped" us as customers now that the job is done and you got your paycheck. That means a lot in this day and age! Our deck is beautiful! We are happy!
P.S. Thank you for helping our neighbors out of their deck bind too! It's sad that other contractors are ok with poor craftsmanship, construction and safety. I'm please that they had the opportunity to work with you."



"Jim's suggestions helped us with both the design and color of our deck. He even offered design suggestions that saved us money. His crew did quality work and we are very satisfied. I would highly recommend him."
—Michael and Sandy


"Jim was the first company we called as we had friends who loved the deck he built for them. After doing our homework, and even considering other bids, Jim was the clear standout choice for his expertise, quality work and integrity. He patiently answered all of our questions and although our project was small, he made us feel like it was a top priority for him. We loved the finished deck, the beautiful design elements, and the fact that it will probably outlast us!"
—James and Karen


"Jim and his crew recently replaced our deck. Jim's reply to my initial inquiry regarding replacement was the most responsive I have ever encountered with any business. His assessment of the deck to be replaced and the scheduling to install the new deck was very timely. Jim's crew restored my faith that there still are craftsmen who believe their work reflects the best of their craft and pride in their work. The crew took the time to remove the debri that had accumulated under the old deck, cleaned the area after their work was completed and even washed off the deck when it was completed. Jim and his entire crew exemplify the professional standards every business should emulate."


"Having Jim and his crew design and build our new deck has been one of the best experiences we have had with a contractor. Jim worked patiently with us to design the exact deck that we wanted,and provided outstanding customer service before, during and after the build. In addition, his crew was very professional and courteous. Overall, we could not be more pleased with Decks By Design and our new deck."
—Lisa & Amy


"Jim came highly recommended by our friends and I would certainly recommend him to others. He always showed up on time, answered all of our questions promptly, stayed in touch before and during the project, and took care of all the little details to make my life easier. The new deck looks great and we'll enjoy it for may years to come.."
—Peter Tilley


"Decks by Design recently finished building my new deck and pergola. I’m not only very happy with the finished product, but I’m also quite impressed with the quality of the materials and the excellent workmanship.
When I met with Jim to get an estimate, I had a basic idea of what I wanted. Jim gave me some great design suggestions that I hadn’t thought of. The resulting deck is a beautiful addition to my back yard.
Jim’s crew definitely deserves some praise also. I watched Vincent and Moise in their daily work and I can attest to their professionalism and dedication to their craft. These guys are awesome. I highly recommend Decks by Design."

—Terry Lisman


"Decks by Design built my deck about 5 years ago. They did such a good job, that when I was ready to have a pergola built this year I called them again. Nothing speaks louder than repeat customers. Jim and the crew and customer friendly and experts at what they do. I am a satisfied customer!"
—Karen Skirde


"We chose Jim's company, Decks By Design, after checking out several reputable deck companies. It was the best decision we could have made. Our new deck was completed over a year ago and we receive compliments on it all the time. Jim and his crew were always prompt, helpful and professional. Jim quickly responds to questions or problems whether they arise during construction or one year later. He very much wants you to be a happy customer! Our family rarely used our old deck, but now we all find reasons to be out there. When I drive around now I find myself noticing the quality and workmanship of the decks I see. I compare them to what we have and I am convinced all over again that we made the best choice by choosing Jim's company because others don't compare--we have the best."
—Greg and Darcey Ruegsegger


"We LOVE our deck and the neighbors are so happy they don't have to look at the ugly one we had before. Beautiful craftmanship. Amazing customer service and communication. We were impressed Jim gave us a quote and a design the first meeting. The quote was competitive."
—Lisa & Joe Hylton


"Beautiful pictures... I just need a simple deck so we can enjoy outside...hope we can afford to hire him."
—Beverly McCain

—Tim & Kelly Lundquist


"Jim and his staff are always a pleasure to work with, as a supplier we see a lot of deckbuilders who are less than professional, in the case of Jim and his crews they are always more than professional. It was a treat to read the comments of those he does the other side of his business with!"
—David Hillenburg


"We couldn't be more pleased.
Jim and his crew did an excellant job, redoing our worn out deck. All Jim's promises were kept. We're enjoying the deck already and summers not even here! It's beautiful!"

"We are so pleased with our new deck which Jim and his guys completed in June, 2010. Jim has such a "can do" attitude and backed it up as he provided us with creative solutions to our deck reconfiguration. Nobody else we talked to was as positive or creative and the end result was everything we could have asked for at a very fair price."
—Gary & Leonie K.

A four star job!!!!"

—Carol M.


"The deck is a fabulous extension to my home. The compliments I have received are too numerous to count. Jim is the ultimate professional as demonstrated by his patience with me as I decided on the final deck and pergola design. Deck by Designs has provided me with a great outdoor living space."
—Ellen B.


"What a beautiful extension of our home! We love our new deck. We appreciate Jim's knowledge in guiding us with both materials and creative additions that we otherwise wouldn't have thought of. The crew was awesome, professional, on time and masters of their craft. Thank you so much for a great experience and years of enjoyment with our new deck!"
—Mel and Lisa


"Jim was recommended to me by a neighbor who is a TimberTech rep. Jim did a great job helping me turn what I had in mind into a working plan, and provided me with an estimate on the spot. His crew did a fine job building a beautiful deck exactly according to specs, and Jim was there every step of the way to ensure that I was satisfied. All of this at a reasonable price. I heartily recommend DBD."
—David Skelton


"We highly recommend Decks By Design. Jim and his crew are great! Jim came by several times during the planning stages of our deck to show us different options and colors. We were replacing a large 35 year old wood deck, so there was a major tear-out which took a couple of days. Each night the area was cleaned up very nicely. The crew was very pleasant and helpful. At the end of the day the crew would even lay down planks on the framework so our dogs could easily get in and out of the house. Our deck looks fantastic, and we are very happy with Decks By Design. To Jim and the Crew: Thanks for a job well done!!!"
—Ellen and Roger


"We had a deck installed last Summer and LOVE it. We would highly recommend DBD to anyone. Not only was the price right but the employees were very professional and kind. Customer Service is extremely important to me and they were great! The deck is amazing and is just what we wanted. We live on a corner house in Reunion and have received many compliments on it. Thanks DBD!!"
—The Lawsons

"After receiving quotes and input from various decking companies in the area we had about given up, then we met Jim. Not only was he the most professional and knowledgeable but his pricing was right where we thought it should be. We wanted someone to take care of us with little or no worry and this is exactly what we got. His crew was also very professional and hard working. We not only got the deck we wanted but we got it at the price we wanted and in the time we wanted. We highly recommend!"
—Ben & Lori Martinez
Commerce City Colorado


"Jim and his crew did an excellent job desiging and building a 12'by 20' Timber Tech deck on the back of our house. With a walk out basement, the enclosed poles make for a nice looking finished product. Jim and his crew were easy to work with and made sure that everything was to our satisfaction before final payment. We also appreciate the full 5 year warranty."
—Dennis & Karen Kuhlmann


"Jim's crew did a great job on our deck at the back of the house. They included a bench on the outside length, which we requested, as well as lighting at the top of 5 posts."
—Wes & Ruth Sundin


"Jim was a pleasure to work with. He was honest and frank regarding hidden problems since the decks we were replacing were 19 years old. The crew was hard working and polite and they explained what they were doing and why. We had an adjustment that had to be made to an under deck post. Then the snows came. When the snows cleared and the drifts melted Jim was there to correct the remaining problem.

We would be very happy to recommend Jim and his crew."
—Geraldine and Ted Wolk

"Thanks to Jim and his crew for a fine job replacing our deck. He fulfilled all promises in a timely manner and we couldn't be happier. We would definately recommend him and his fine company."

"We hired Jim 13years ago to do two decks for us. Recently we hired him again to do a patio with pavers. He is great to work with and he is a hands-on owner.

We highly recommend Decks By Design. Most of all we value Jim's ethical standards and quality workmanship."
—Larry and Karen Duncan

"Great job! Jim and his crews did an excellent job replacing an old balcony off our bedroom. Fast, friendly and excellent quality for a fair price.

I'll use Decks by Design in the future and recommend them to anyone who is considering them."

—Nicole and Ethan


Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with the new deck - the double door from the master bedroom out onto the deck was a real good idea! Working with you and the crew was a great experience both in the design phase and throughout the building process - top notch workmanship/ attention to detail. Many thanks and best wishes."

—Paul and Marge


"This was the most painless project we've ever had done! In just 4 days, over 1000 sf of decking and railing was completed. Jim's team worked hard and had a gift for reimagining the space, introducing a viewing area on one side, and accenting rock outcroppings on the other end by reconfiguring the railing. We highly recommend Decks by Design for their outstanding work and professionalism! Thank you Jim for a job well-done."

You will be talked about a lot over the summer. I hope I can send some your way! Have a great summer!"

We would highly recommend Decks by Design! Give Jim a call today!"

"Decks By Design just completed our new replacement deck and my wife and I cannot be more happier with selecting Decks by Design.
Beginning with our first meeting with Jim it was very apparent the customer focus that DBD provides. Jim's attention to OUR NEEDS and his expertise, made it very easy to select DBD to do our work over other contractors.
DBD workers were so considerate during our construction, even when I was looking over their shoulders because of the excitement of our new deck. :)
The quality of the construction exceeded our expections 100%.
I would highly recommend selecting DBD. You will not be disappointed."

—Dennis McNa


"I am available as a reference or questions regarding DBD.
Jim & Crew - Thank You, Thank You, Thank You
"Deck the Halls" It feels like Christmas in March! I love my new composite deck that Jim designed and built for me! It was a pleasure working with him and his wonderful crew! They were very professional and always kept me updated as the deck was being contructed. Jim gives great attention to detail, both in the framing and in building the top, deck floor. It's obvious he thoroughly enjoys his work! He has my highest recommendation!! Thanks, Jim! What a terrfic way to celebrate spring!"

—Judy Winnick


"I have known Jim Cobbett for many years and I'm a witness to his workmanship, expertise and ability to deliver quality products with a very personal and professional manner.
