A new deck built by Clough Construction can be an incredible addition to your Marin County home. Decks are a great way to maximize outdoor living space and give your family a place to grow and play. Clough Construction specializes in building strong, functional and beautiful decks. A new deck will look great, last for years and add value to your home.

Decks built by Clough incorporate the following elements:

  • Strong foundations
  • Comfort
  • Functionality
  • Continuity
  • A streamlined permit process
  • High quality materials
  • Are great for outdoor living

Strong Foundation

A great deck begins with a strong foundation. That’s why Clough always uses piers and footings that are much deeper than most competitors. Safety and strength is our number one priority. Clough Construction uses tried and true building materials for each custom project and adheres to local jurisdiction codes.


Clough Construction uses the best decking materials and railing packages to make our decks the most outstanding in Marin County. Using quality materials is key to making decks attractive, safe and enjoyable.  Using the right railings provides style, safety and can preserve a stunning view!


Clough Construction builds decks customized to your needs. Scott Clough will come to your home and meet with you to determine what you want out of your deck, what you will use it for, and get a feel for the environment. He’ll determine what would work best in the space in terms of size, shape and style. Customization based on the function of the deck is what sets Clough apart from the competition. We believe that our deck design is the perfect bridge between high style and pure functionality.

Outdoor Living

Decks create outdoor living spaces and can be thought of as outdoor rooms, and are the perfect bridge between nature and your home environment.  A deck can be a floating backyard for a hillside home with limited space.   Clough’s desire is to build decks that are outdoor home entertainment centers; a place where you can play with your children, enjoy great views, drink your morning coffee, or entertain guests.

Permit Process

Through years of experience, the owners of Clough Construction have learned to negotiate the permit process in Marin. We have created a streamlined, cost effective method of navigating the permit process for deck construction projects, which is part of the full service we offer our clients.


Making sure that a customer is able to pick the best products for their deck is a Clough Construction priority. We never want a client to say, “I wish I had known about that”.  Having been in business for over 30 years, we have extensive experience and history with many types of decking materials. At Clough, we have been able to track our projects over time to observe how materials wear, enabling us to recommend the most suitable for your environment and custom project.

Continuity is a very important element in deck design and we want to design and build a deck to flow with the existing style of your home. Clough’s designs honor a client’s lifestyle, home environment and nature.

Clough construction is the epitome of quality craftsmanship and professionalism. They constructed a fence for our business and did such a great job that we hired them to build a custom glass fence in our backyard overlooking the water. We could not be more satisfied with their work! I would recommend them to anyone!read more

We have had a fantastic experience with Clough Construction. From the moment you pick up the phone and speak to Deanne to set up an appointment you feel like you are in good hands. The estimate by Scott was very fast and the estimate was fair. Their crew was punctual and tidy and their work was beautiful. One issue came up with the aesthetics of our gate and Deanne was very quick to work on a solution. It turned out I actually loved the way the gate looked but wanted a few minor tweaks which their team was very happy to make. Since our job was finished, in a very unfortunate event, a visitor broke our gate. The Clough team came out immediately to fix it for us and it looks like no damage was ever done. I love their work and I love the way they work. A wonderful example of small family owned business with integrity and and more

We’ve hired Clough Construction many times. Over the years we’ve replaced 3 fences and now we have just completed a new deck plus redoing the support posts for a sagging deck and adding in a sliding glass door.They are trustworthy and do quality work. Whether you have a tricky project or a straight forward fence. There is always clear communication. Hard working employees that leave a clean worksite. You know it is a good sign that they have employees that have been with the company 20+ years. A deep bench of talent.I would not hesitate to hire Clough again. They might not be the cheapest, but in the end it will be worth it. You will get a beautiful project that will last and no hassle!read more

Our house has 1000 sq ft of decking over three levels and we have lived here for over 15 years.  I have I used Clough Construction in the past for smaller maintenance projects, to replace beams and gates, and they have always been excellent.So when it came time to do an expansive project to replace all of the old railings with modern Feeney cable railings, as well as rebuild two sets of stairs between our upper, middle and lower decks.  It was an easy decision to call Clough Construction for the project.  I did not even get any other bids, as I already had confidence in their work quality! The Clough Construction team are very easy to work with and put clients first at every step of the way.  Deanne follows up on a regular basis to make sure you are happy and Scott is flexible to work with as project changes inevitably come up.The team were onsite for 6 weeks as it was a significant amount of work.  The job site was always kept clean, Quinn and Lull’s work ethic was exception and their attention to detail was second to none.  They really are master carpenters.We have had many compliments on the finished work and could not be happier with it.  Whenever I need any decking or fencing work, I always call Clough!read more

From the first phone call to the gate closing behind them when they left, Clough Construction was terrific. Personal walk through with Scott Clough, Deanne followed through with phone calls, and the crew they sent to build the fence were artists. Well Done!read more

We have had excellent experiences with family-run Clough Construction on a few projects at our house. They are true craftsman who care about quality, doing right by their customers, and producing beautiful redwood projects. They treated our property with respect, always leaving the job site clean and tidy. Communication was excellent; we were always aware of job specifics and on site working hours. They were easy to contact and quick to respond whenever questions arose. Billing was upfront and we were never charged anything that wasn’t expected. We are very pleased with all of their beautiful work and how it has enhanced the beauty of our more

Clough Construction are known to our neighborhood now as the Wood Whisperers. All of their guys are incredible artisans, at the height of their craft, who produce the most beautiful work regardless of the awkwardness of the problems they face. We had 2 months with Quinn and Lol replacing our wraparound redwood deck, who are Incredibly nice people with the best work ethic I’ve had the pleasure to experience. Would re-hire them in a heartbeat and would wait a year for them to be free, if they were booked up, rather than use an inferior company. They are that good, and that worth it. Wonderful family run company with honest, hard working people captained by the lovely Deanne and Scott, who made the whole experience of installing complicated decking in Tiburon a lot less painful than it could easily have more

We are extremely pleased with Clough Construction. They tore down our old decks and rebuilt our 2 new decks from scratch. This was a large and challenging job, about 1400 sq ft of decks, 25 feet above ground on a hillside. Clough crew worked in a timely manner, were very respectful of our needs and very professional throughout. They finished the job on the promised date. I strongly recommend the company and would use it more

Clough Construction truly deserves 5 stars! From our initial contact with Deanne to the on-site visits/design plan with Scott to the construction team, everything was on-point. Clough installed 2 large decking areas on a extremely steep hillside. A rather difficult application which several other contractors would not even bid on. Clough had the right team to get it done. Due to the slope, the scope of the project had to be re-worked, but Scott was patient with us to finalize a design plan that would also work within our budget. He came back multiple times during the build to make sure we were all on the same page.The crew worked quickly and professionally. They showed up on time, were friendly and cleaned up daily. Rick, the foreman communicated clearly and involved us in any design decisions that needed to be made. The workmanship is excellent and the finished deck/railing is beautiful. It was completed on time and the job site was immaculate upon completion.We would not hesitate to recommend CC and are planning to use them again on future projects.Incredible experience…Thank You Clough Construction!read more

They do great work and are very professional. They built a glass entry/gate to our house that we love. They’ve also done other fence work for us. Very importantly, they stand by their work. It makes a big difference when you work with people like those at Clough who are very customer service oriented and who know how to earn loyalty. We highly recommend them. read more
