Extend Your Comfort Zone To The Outside Of Your Home

Home is where you can really unwind and take the edge off.

When you get home, the stress you’ve built up all day should just vanish. You deserve a break from the pressures of day-to-day life, don’t you?  What if you could get instant relaxation just by stepping through your back door?

Let’s make your backyard as comfy as your home with a reliable and welcoming deck that gives you more space to use and allows you to spend more time outside. Prepare to enjoy every inch of your home, inside and out.

Combine Pleasure And Usability

Your deck is the perfect start to an all-inclusive backyard experience.

The moment you step outside your home and into your backyard, you have instant access to a multi-functional area. A deck is the perfect place to host a much-needed get-together, have a spontaneous barbecue, watch your kids play and run around, and so much more!

You can have a deck built just for you. We’ll design it with your family’s needs in mind, from the youngest to the oldest member. Time to make your backyard fun again.

About Us

Hard Decks is a young company founded by Jayme Carlson in January 2021, but our experience goes much further back: our staff has 35+ years experience building decks! Now, we’re focused on using our passion to give families across Belvidere, Poplar Grove, and Rockford the spaces and places they need to spend more enjoyable time at home. We love building beautiful and comfortable decks with our own hands, and we’re super excited to show your project the love it deserves.

Our Simple Process

We’ve developed an easy way for you to go from idea to dream deck in a few simple steps.
If you move forward with on-site consultation, we’ll start with a $300 consultation fee to give you a quote. At that point, we’ll pick out styles and colors and move forward with the contract.


Get in touch with us and tell us about your project. We’ll get back to with a phone consultation, where we’ll chat about the details to make sure we’re on the same page. We'll schedule an on-site consult to finalize your project and the contract.

Building Your Vision

This is the fun part - we get to work on your deck! We build it based on the styles and choices you picked during the on-site consultation. You get to sit back and relax while we build your vision.

Enjoy your Deck

Once your deck is complete, we’ll have a final walkthrough with you to explore and present to you your new deck. Get ready to unwind, relax, and enjoy the result. We can't wait for you to use it!

Inspiration Gallery

Our work is geared towards the look and feel you desire. We’ve put together a deck gallery for you to explore and find inspiration for your project. Here’s what your deck could look like:


Through the form below, share your ideas with us and show us any deck examples that you like. The more details you give us, the better we’ll be able to help bring your vision to life! We'll get back to you with a phone consultation to get things started. The next step is the in-home consultation, where we'll discuss your project in detail and offer you a quote.
