Black Diamond Decks Process

Our Distinctive, Quality-Driven Process

Providing a Unique Experience from start to finish

Building a deck in Colorado doesn't have to be a daunting experience. At Black Diamond Decks, we pride ourselves on our meticulous and quality-driven process tailored to the unique climate and requirements of Colorado's Front Range. Our expertise in design-build outdoor living spaces sets us apart, ensuring that every deck and outdoor space we craft is beautiful but also durable and compliant with local building codes. Experience the difference of a construction process that keeps quality as its guiding principle.


The Black Diamond Deck Difference

Protection: We utilize joist tape, sealing the joists to shield them from moisture. This prolongs the deck's life and ensures its structural integrity.

Regulatory Compliance: We're well-versed with Douglas County building permits and regulations across Colorado Springs, ensuring every deck we build is compliant and safe.

Solid Foundation: Whether it's caissons or helical piers, we lay a foundation that promises stability and longevity. Given Colorado's frost line and soil conditions, deck footings typically need to be between 30 and 36 inches deep, but this can vary based on specific locations.

Finishing Touches: We add those final touches, from deck railings to privacy screens, making your outdoor space truly unique.

Quality Products: We partner with top-tier brands like Azenco and Progressive Screens to offer you top-of-the-line outdoor structures and products.
