About Ben

Since the age of 16, I’ve held a job in construction. I’ve done everything from framing homes in small towns to building skyscrapers in the city.

For over 10 years, I’ve mostly specialized in building decks. I have never minded working the 10, 11, or even 12 hour days with mandatory Saturdays. What I did mind was how little time that left for my family, and for my church. You see, God has blessed me with six children and a wife that is far better than I deserve.

Needing more time for family, friends, and church. Wanting to coach my sons’ sports teams (and daughters if they weren’t too cool to get dirty). Knowing God has given me the talent to build just about anything. I started praying and looking for the best way to provide for my family. God’s answer, start your own business.

"Ben and his crew were amazing the whole step of the way. They were on time and very efficient. They were very courteous and went above and beyond to make sure the project was done correctly. He was extremely honest and never pressured me. He was highly detail oriented , and kept me informed during the entire process . My deck turned out beautifully. I would recommend him to anyone that needs any deck work. If your looking for an honest guy that gets the job done, look no further. His work ethic and skills were comparable to no other!"

"Thoroughly impressed with Ben Blackman and his crew! They did an awesome job installing a roof over our deck and adding on new steps, lighting, a fan, etc. We are really enjoying our new outdoor space! We can't thank the Ben Blackman Decks crew enough!"

"Ben and his team are a group of talented professionals that I would absolutely hire again. We were thoroughly impressed with the communication, timeliness, prep/cleanup and overall craftsmanship that his team employed from start to finish. I’m not sure how many carpenters power wash and scrub clean each individual baluster, post and rail to make sure the project sparkles on finish day, but I can assure you these guys did - and that’s just one example of the pride taken in their work. We are looking forward to enjoying our beautiful new deck for years to come. Thanks Ben and team!"
