Deck Design and Construction

Our deck design and construction process includes structurally sound and properly supported beams, with a design that meets your expectations and provides many years of use and enjoyment. We cover a wide range of tiny details to ensure you get the deck you are hoping for; this includes hardware choices and design stylization such as your choice of railings and materials. All our deck work is also building code compliant.

With deck construction in San Jose, we focus on helping you decide on the best choice of materials. Whether you are searching for a wooden or composite construction, we have the resources available to help meet and exceed your expectations.

When it comes to wood construction, we can provide a wide range of wood species so you can find the grain and wood tone that best matches your overall aesthetics. Our suppliers maintain wood that covers both light and dark wood shades and a variety of unique and attractive grains.

For composite construction, our wide range of composite materials can fit into a wide range of budgets while still meeting your needs for high quality construction and a stylish aesthetic that stays within your set budget.

We offer superior dedication and craftsmanship. Plus, the building process is not all we care about. After we’re done with your deck, we’ll walk you through exactly how you can maintain it, depending on the unique materials and other design choices we’ve made. That way, you get long-term use and value from your deck and it is another reason you know we offer honesty when walking you through your deck material choices. We consider many things:

  • Curved or unusual decks: We can create decks that fit unusual spaces, including those that curve, have multiple levels, or need to be constructed in two separate pieces and joined by an elegant walkway. The work will be the envy of your local carpenter.
  • Plant-smart design: How will your deck work with your landscaping? It should enhance your plants and work with your garden beds to look great. We also attempt to minimize damage to your existing plants in the construction process. It’s not just our job-site, it is also your home.
  • Lighting: While general contractors are busy with project management, they might forget lighting. It is truly one of the most impactful additions to a deck, however. Lighting improves safety, looks, and makes the deck more functional when the sun is down.
  • Pools and kitchens: When you have a lot going on outside, quality construction always demands we weave the features together. Your deck needs to serve your needs, and work with your pool, outdoor kitchen, pergola, and other features.
Deck construction and design done by our pros

I’ve had many construction projects completed by various contractors in the Bay Area. Soto Bay Construction is by far the best company I have ever contracted with. The entire crew was courteous, very well organized with their work and left the work site clean and tidy every day. They have excellent carpentry skills, take pride in their work with meticulous attention to detail.

The owner is a hardworking, hands on contractor with the highest level of integrity. The project was finished on time and on budget. Soto Bay Construction personifies everything you would want and expect from a general contractor. From the first day on the job, their level of competence was evident. This allowed me to have complete piece of mind while the work was in progress. I knew from day one that the job was going to be done properly. It was a pleasure working with the entire crew at at Soto Bay Construction.

The Best in ADU Construction

It’s no secret that ADUs have gotten incredibly popular in San Jose. Building an ADU is the best way to get more value out of your property by creating additional square footage, giving aging parents a place to live, or creating a new rental property. Thanks to California’s housing crisis, ADU construction is heavily supported by state and local governments, meaning that your project will be subjected to less red tape and delays than it would have been only two or three years ago.

ADUs are very major remodeling. As a savvy homeowner, you want to make sure that you’re working with a team that can handle everything, from coordinating the ADU’s exterior cladding with your siding, to making sure every fixture on the inside is of high quality. We can answer all of your questions about ADU design and make sure yours is built properly.

Our ADU layouts focus not only on stylish fixtures and finishes, but also on essential systems such as plumbing, electricity, and HVAC. A stylish ADU is not just an extension onto your existing home, instead it can be likened to a small house and can provide you with that luxuriously spacious kitchen or relaxing living space. Your ADU will have its own separate bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. As such it works perfectly as a rental space or additional space for your in-laws or teen/adult children. ADUs might also function as home offices or extra living space for you. We work closely with you to determine the best design aspects and materials for your ADU while also remaining within your set budget.

When it comes to ADU construction in San Jose, it’s hard to beat our team. We work with virtually every architectural style, from Tuscan to Transitional, and can perfectly match the styles of your existing property. We also have extensive experience navigating the permitting and regulatory process for building ADUs in San Jose, which means we can break ground while other ADU builders are still fighting for approval.
