About R&R Deckbuilders

Our company was formed in 1996 with one goal in mind: to deliver a finished product that is far superior to our overpriced competitors’, with a higher investment return, for a lower price. This philosophy has helped us to grow in volume and increase our referral base every single year since 1997. At R&R, we have set a higher standard for what we expect to deliver to our customers than the typical home improvement company, ranging from no high-pressure, three-hour sales presentations to installing your deck or sunroom on time to honoring our lifetime labor warranty. It’s not just all about the money. The “little details” which, in our eyes, “perfect” your project and make it complete… the small details that most of our competitors overlook… the ones that create future referrals from you… are what we take pride in. Using only the most highly-skilled carpenters in St. Louis, the very best quality woods, composites and PVC’s available on the market, keeping your jobsite clean, respecting your property, and staying in consistent communication with you from start to finish are standard for us. Our experience has proven that these are the keys to a successful, stress-free project and developing new friendships… and lifelong customers.

It is not a coincidence that we get referrals from every job we build!

Our journeymen/trim carpenters, lead the top four custom deck and sunroom crews in St. Louis, and quite possibly the entire Midwest. They are not the typical sub-contracted framing crews or fence installers that build many of our competitors’ decks – this is one of the biggest reasons our decks and sunrooms are of such higher value and quality than many of our competitors. We are nationally – recognized as one of the top deck builders in the country and referred regularly by the top composite and pvc decking suppliers in the country to install their products (see “Products”). The level of pride we take in the detail of our work, our integrity, and our passion for expertly- crafted exterior design and carpentry is second to none. We are well-known for successfully building projects that many of our competitors simply do not have the skill to build.
