What We Do At Custom Design & Build


The reality is that we specialize in a wide range of outdoor structures and aesthetic features. Unlike some build companies that just offer basic fencing services, we can plan, build, and install dozens of different types of decks, fences, add-ons, and hardscaping projects. Here are just a few of our specialties:


  • Decks: Decks are one of the most popular ways to transform backyards and provide a space for relaxation, events, or even just designated outdoor spaces attached to the home. These are ideal for backyards that have uneven terrain and require a raised platform for more comfortable movement. We can examine your property and help you devise a deck that works for your specific needs and space. 
  • Screen Rooms: Screen rooms are commonly added to outdoor areas that require an enclosed space for gardening, outdoor dining, storage, or just enjoying any activity outdoors without dealing with pests and insects. We’ll work with you to ensure that any screen rooms and similar structures meet local ordinances and offer you the kind of space and protection you want. 
  • Porch Roofs: Even if you already have a great-looking porch, you may want to add something to help keep it in good shape for years to come. When you work with us, we measure your porch and discuss the design and materials for your dream porch roof. 
  • Pergolas: If you want something that falls somewhere between a gazebo and a covered patio, a beautiful pergola could be the answer! We design custom pergolas that can serve as a fun resting place by the pool or even a special place to hold outdoor events at your home or business. 
  • Hardscaping: Hardscaping can encompass a wide range of projects, and we can help you with them all! From a well-lit walkway to a decorative rock wall, we have the expertise to completely change the look of your front yard, back yard, or anywhere on your property that’s in need of a facelift!
  • Patios: Much like decks, patios offer a perfect space to dedicate to whatever hobbies or activities you enjoy right outside your door. From an open-air play space for children to a covered area to simply escape the elements for a few minutes, patios provide a great way to make the space just outside your door more beautiful and functional at the same time. 
  • Fencing: One of our top specialties is fencing, and it also happens to be one of the most popular choices for homeowners and business owners alike. We specialize in a variety of fencing types, but regardless of the fence you need, we can take it from the planning stages to the final installation. 


From classic elegance to contemporary charm, our team creates captivating outdoor living spaces that seamlessly integrate with your landscape.


The Planning Process

At Custom Design & Build, we pride ourselves on offering a simple, 7-step process that goes all the way from the earliest discussions to the final installation. Here is what you can expect:


  1. Reach Out To Us: First and foremost, you have to let us know that you’d like our help! Even if you’re not sure what exactly you want, you can give us an idea about ways you’d like to transform your residential or commercial space. Even something as simple as “I want my backyard to look more organized” (with a few pictures of the area) can be enough to help us start developing unique ideas just for you!
  2. First Phone Consultation: Once we receive the initial information about your project, we’ll want to talk to you directly to learn more about what you want the final results to look like. This will also help us learn more about the scope of the project and provide you with a ballpark budget. 
  3. On-Site Consultation: Next, we’ll need to see the property in person so we can start taking measurements and discuss the project in greater detail. This step is very important, as it allows everyone to work together on a plan. After this consultation is finished, we can also provide you with a more precise quote. 
  4. Q&A: This is the step where we discuss the specifics of the project — including materials, measurements, colors, and timelines — giving you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have. If and when you’re satisfied, we can come to an agreement and move forward with the project. 
  5. Design: This step mostly happens on our end, as we need to get to work to design your dream build, whether it’s a fence, a stone pathway, or a multifaceted project. That said, we will work with you and keep you updated, particularly if we have any questions about specific design choices that weren’t covered during the Q&A session.
  6. Build: This is when we can finally get our hands dirty! With more than three decades of experience, we love building residential and commercial structures of all shapes and sizes. And most importantly, we really know what we’re doing!
  7. Enjoy: The last step is easy — just sit back and enjoy your new outdoor structure, custom space, or hardscaping!
