Built Right
the First Time

In 2020 M3 Decks was forced to pull down a 1200+ square foot deck because the previous homeowners that built the deck 7 YEARS PRIOR used improper lumber and hardware, poured inadequate footings, over-spanned every support beam and deck joist, and didn't follow basic connection techniques.  This resulted in rot and structural damage to the house itself as well as a massive avoidable expense in it's replacement.

Who Should Hire a Deck Safety Inspector?

Real Estate Professionals

Prioritize the safety and liability of your clients, ensuring that all aspects of a property, including structural integrity and compliance with safety regulations, are thoroughly evaluated to protect client interests.

Home Buyers

Those who opted to expedite their purchasing process by forgoing a deck inspection may have concerns about the structural integrity of their new deck. It's crucial to assess its condition to ensure it is safe and meets all required standards.


Current homeowners with decks that are at least a decade old should consider a professional evaluation. Over time, wear and tear can affect a deck’s safety and stability, making it essential to address potential issues before they worsen.

Home Buyers

New home buyers should not solely rely on home inspectors to detect potential issues with decks, as inspectors might not have the specialized knowledge required to identify specific problems. It's advisable for buyers to seek additional expert assessments to ensure thorough inspection.

What Our Customers Have to Say

"I purchased a home in March 2019. One of the biggest things I needed to address was the deck.

I began doing research on companies and getting quotes. I was referred to Michael Miller and M3 Deck by a neighbor. I was extremely pleased with my initial interaction with, Michael. He provided me his in-depth knowledge and experience and answered my questions. He suggested that I go to Dunn lumber so that I could see and walk on the material. This was invaluable to my experience.

Living in the great Northwest I knew I wanted to get a composite material. I went with TimberTech. Michael and team were able to take my vision and turn it into reality. They went above and beyond to provide me the best customer experience while added value to my home.

I highly recommend M3 Decks to anyone that looking to enhance the outdoor experience."

Adri Richards, Woodinville WA

"We needed our deck replaced and were under a tight time constraint due to the pending listing of our home. Michael Miller with M3 came out the next day and gave us a couple of cost estimates using wood or synthetic decking. They were able to begin work within the week, finished on schedule,  and on budget. We couldn't have been happier with our deck, or with Michael and his crew. Thank you M3 for our beautiful deck and the painless process from beginning to end!"

Greg & Staci Cass, Woodinville WA

"We love our new deck! We had an idea of what we wanted but ultimately relied on the expertise of Mike for colors, framing, and product type. They worked in hot sun, rain, and demolished a huge amount of old deck! We are excited to spend endless summer days and nights enjoying our new deck."

Cheryl Sorenson, Mukilteo WA

"M3 did a great job from start to finish on my large three tiered deck.  These guys do great work and had to rebuild the deck from the structure up.  It looks great and I’m glad I used them for something that I look at everyday.  They really are precise about the end product!"
