Detailed Deck Plans Made Us Feel Comfortable

"Mark Shriner and his team are real pros and did a great job on our deck and two brick walkways. Mark came out and took the time to understand our vision, added his own suggestions and provided us with detailed plans that made us feel comfortable he know what he was doing. The work was done on time and looks great. DDD is not the cheapest but they are the BEST." -Unknown


Professional Installation Completed Quickly

"Remodeled our deck and put in a screened in porch. Fantastic. We love the new porch. We have lived in it all summer. The crew got it done quickly even though it rained almost every day." -Unknown


Exceptionally Pleased with Deck and Screened In Porch

"Mark worked with us on some design aspects that helped us save money. He was terrific with advice and we never felt the slightest hint of up-selling. The crew was very pleasant, professional and had obviously been working together for a while. Each evening the work area was cleaned up and secured. We were extremely pleased with the results and two neighbors have now used Distinctive Decks after seeing their craftsmanship. Six months later - the screened in porch, deck and lighting remain looking great. We remain exceptionally pleased." -Steve DeWeese


Straight Forward and Great Follow-through for Deck Construction

"When looking for a company to build our Northern Virginia deck, we called three different companies. After two other failed consultations with other nearby companies, Mark showed up on time and kept it simple. We told him what we were looking for, and he gave us his insight on some other options. He put together a nice simple plan the next day. I appreciated the straight forward approach that Mark had; he was honest and very competitively priced. His advice was spot on with the building material, letting us know what products that are worth the money, and others to steer clear of. Here is the best part, after signing the contract, we had our deck completed in under 4 days!!!! It's been a couple months, and everything still looks great. When Mark tells you that something will be done, it will be done. I was skeptical at first when he told me it would be done in 4 days, but he came through, and his crew was polite and did a great job." -JohanrSmit


I Highly Recommend Distinctive Deck Designs!

"Mark Shriner and his team did a fantastic job. They were patient with our questions and worked hard to accommodate our requests; taking our vision and making it a reality. Once the project began Mark's team performed like a well-oiled machine from the build, to the cleanup. We love the finished product!" -blackg


Mark’s Team Truly Does Great Deck Designs in Northern Virginia

"Mark Shriner’s team has some excellent representations of their deck designs throughout Northern Virginia. As a long-time resident of the Fairfax area, I have repeatedly heard about Distinctive Deck Designs and just had to look them up. I can’t believe how good the deck construction looks, and it’s not even real wood!" -Diane Charles McMullen


Works Within Budget & More than Met All Expectations

"I'll use bullets to save time and make it clear and easy to read. - Mark took the time to meet with me and my wife on separate occasions to help make us both comfortable working with him. - Mark had some very creative ideas that fit very well with our concept of what we wanted - Mark was clear in his communication and always responsive (and patient) with our questions - Mark uses one team that is very efficient and I was very impressed with how quickly they progressed - Mark and the crew leader communicated during the process to keep me posted as a couple unpredictable issues came up - Mark worked with me and was open to my input ( I was being indecisive about a couple things) as things progressed - In the end there were NO surprises and Mark stayed true to everything he said he would I was slow to write this review, but I'm glad because I get to tell you about what just happened. They installed my deck in late February when the weather was cold. Now that it's summer some of the wood has expanded in the heat, and the screen door was sticking. I emailed Mark and he had someone come by within a couple days to fix it. Mark does quality work and he stands behind it. I would not hesitate to recommend him and his crew." -Unknown


Beautiful Work Removing Old Wood Deck and Building New Trex Deck in Fairfax

"We were very impressed with Mark and the work that was performed. After meeting with Mark, we decided to replace our Fairfax home’s deck with a new patio that increased the usable space significantly and we couldn't be happier. Mark took the time to provide multiple drawings and quotes for replacing the wood on the deck with Trex and a new patio for comparison purposes. At the time we provided the deposit, there was an approximate 4 week wait time due to other projects. Mark was able to cut that wait time to 2 weeks. The old deck was removed and the initial foundation for the patio was completed within 1 day. The entire project was completed within 4 days. After completing the patio, the entire area was thoroughly cleaned, grass seed and straw were spread out over dirt areas. Throughout the process and after Mark was available by phone and email to answer any questions and followed up with us to ensure we were satisfied. After discussing with Mark, one issue we encountered after the first rain related to the new placement of the downspout runoff; his company came out and fixed the issue by burying the drain and leading it further away from the house. Overall, we couldn't be happier with how the new patio turned out and we would highly recommend his company to everybody. Description of work: Removed 30+ year old wood deck and built new paver patio with Trex stairs and railings leading from house" -Unknown
