Please allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Steve Ackerman.  I am from Janesville, Wisconsin, and I am a carpenter.  I have been for most of my life.  I build quality, attractive decks at a competitive price, in a short amount of time with the intention of 100% customer satisfaction setting the standard for my work.

If you are considering adding a deck, replacing an old one or adding to an existing one, I would be more than happy to give you a free estimate and my professional advice on how to go about giving you a deck that will fulfill your needs and be a nice addition to your property adding to its value.

I will go over the different materials available to build your deck, their wear and tear properties and their different appearances and options.  I use heavy duty hardware and more than adequate framework making for a solid, enduring structure that will give you many years of pleasure.  I screw everything down with a good heavy and long screw, and I pride myself on practical design and an attractive finished appearance.

On this page, you will find a few examples of my work.  Please check them out, and consider using me to help you to build the deck that you are desiring.  It would be my pleasure and honor to serve you in a cordial and friendly manner.  I am fair in my pricing and I keep my customer involved in all design and construction decision making.

For a free estimate, please call me at (608)754-1237
For questions, online bidding and deck options, send email to

"The Handy Man"

Include your specs and I will e-mail you a rough estimate of what it is going to cost you to build the deck you are considering.  In e-mailing me specs, I need the exterior dimensions (Length X Width) plus the height of the deck and number of stairwells you are thinking about installing.  I live in Janesville and will drive as far as 30 miles to build your deck.  Please keep that in mind.

Once decided on a deck type, design and materials, we will go over different handrails and additional options for your deck such as planters, benches, curves, multi-level decking, deck board patterns etc...

I am insured and extremely qualified.  Customer satisfaction is my number one concern.  Please call me.  I hope to hear from you soon.  Remember, my estimate is free.  Please allow me the opportunity to make your acquaintance.
