Our company was established in November of 1990 and formed as a corporation
in January of 1991. The principle owners are Ron Spillers and Joel Skillingstead.
Ron has been in the deck industry since 1985 when he went to work for
Weatherdecks, Inc. in Bellevue. Joel has been in the deck industry since
1978 when he was hired as the Production Manager for Eastside Vinyl Decks,
also in Bellevue. Both Joel and Ron own homes on the Eastside.
Our primary goal when we started West Coast Decks was to provide the best
customer service available in the deck construction industry. We both
agreed that customer service is a rare commodity in today’s market
place and especially in the contracting community. We decided to make
customer service our number one priority. This is why we both have cell
phones and have a secretary who answers the phone and can assist customers
immediately. It will be either Ron or Joel who visits your home to provide
a bid on your deck project and answer all your initial questions. We will
provide deck design service and will help you decide how to get the best
deck for your budget. In the design process, we will ask you many questions
regarding your thoughts on how the deck will be used, your landscaping
plans, possible future expansion, and traffic patterns on and around the
deck. We promise to be available to answer any questions or concerns you
may have before, during and after your deck project is complete. Being
a relatively small company where the owners are also hands on employees
allows a high degree of customer satisfaction and loyalty. According to
the people who have used our company, we have succeeded in making our
customers feel like real customers.
We decided early on to make decks our specialty and concentrate our efforts
on deck design and construction. We have designed and built over 2000
decks since we started our company. We are not re-modelers who will do
a deck as a side project. If however we do build a deck for you, we will
be happy to give you a bid on any other work you need done to your home,
inside or out. We have the personnel and knowledge to tackle almost any
carpentry project you may have.
We use year-round company-employed carpenters on most all of our jobs.
During our busy season, we may use a subcontractor to build your deck
in order to get it done in a timely manner. All of our subcontractors
have been carefully screened and we promise you will receive the same
top quality construction and service on your deck project as if our own
crews were doing the job. There is always a “lead carpenter”
on site who is in charge of the crew and can answer questions about your
deck project. Our production supervisor will be on site when the project
begins and he will also stop in almost every day to check on progress
and answer questions.
