Who We Are

Our people and our philosophy

Woodland Deck Company is a full-service deck builder serving the greater Cleveland and Akron area. We are a devoted deck builder with a holistic approach to the designing/building of decks and backyard structures.

Born out of a passion for life outdoors, Woodland was founded in 2000 to create decks and outdoor spaces to be enjoyed for generations. Guided by a deep belief of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” Woodland strives to carry this out in every aspect of the work we do. As a deck-building company, we are always looking for ways to better our products, services, and ourselves. We are passionate about life outside and believe that enjoying God’s creation is a rich gift to us.

At Woodland we understand that there is more to building a deck than just deck boards, screws and deck railings. We understand that it’s about the fun and time spent outdoors, about evenings with family and weekends with friends. We have built our company around making this whole deck building experience fun and easy. From design and construction to final clean-up, we make this process hassle-free for you so that the journey is as joyous as the end result.

We know that we cannot possibly build every deck, but our goal is that the ones we build are solid, long-lasting, and special to you and us.

Steve Stelkic

Owner / Sales

My love for building and creating and taking on challenges began early in life. Wanting to learn more in this area, I attended the University of Akron by working as a carpenter to pay for my tuition. Shortly after graduation, I landed my “dream office job.” Months into my new job, I realized that working outdoors with my hands was what I really enjoyed doing. I remember being envious of the landscapers working outside of my window. I decided to take a courageous step: leave the office behind, and venture out into the world of beginning a small business doing something I was passionate about - building decks. So, in 2000, the Woodland Deck Company was birthed out of a humble beginning and one pick-up truck. Today we have grown to a full-service deck company with multiple crews and many satisfied customers. We have a great team of passionate workers in the office, in management, and in the field.

Aside from enjoying learning and doing all the different aspects that come from running a small business, I love free time spent doing anything outdoors; hiking, yard work, and cleaning my garage. I love to spend time with my wife and seven children. There is never a dull moment and there is always reason to laugh at all the entertainment the kids provide.

Project Developer

Hello! I’m David, one of the Project Developers here at Woodland Deck Company. Before Woodland, I obtained my bachelor's degree from The Ohio State University and worked in the landscape industry. Outside of work I enjoy soccer, golf, and pretty much anything to do with the outdoors. On weekends, my wife and I enjoy spending time with family and volunteering for our church’s youth group. The thing I like most about Woodland Deck is the great group of people I get to work with on a daily basis!
