Custom Deck Builders

Get easy access down to your beach with completely customizable stairs, decks, and landings—built uniquely for your Lake Michigan property.

Lost your stairs with the changing lake levels?

As a Holland, Michigan-based deck builder, Lakeshore Customs builds custom solutions for waterfront access all along Lake Michigan’s shoreline. We’ve helped our neighbors here in Michigan with a range of deck building services from removable aluminum stairs to customized permanent landings. At the same time, we’ve helped them protect against erosion and revegetate their dunes. 

How can we help you restore your property and regain access to your beach?

Deck & Stair Solutions Built For Your Unique Need

Composite Decks

Composite decking maintains the appearance of natural wood while offering several advantages over traditional wood decking. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance, durable, long-lasting solution for both your deck and beach stairs, composite is for you! We also install TimberTech composite decking for a long-lasting natural appearance.

Low Maintenance

Sanding, sealing, and staining will be a thing of the past with a composite deck.

Durable & Weather Resistant

Composite is built to last against not only decay, insects, cracking, and warping, but also against harsh weather conditions like excessive moisture, UV rays, and temperature fluctuations.


Composite decking comes in a variety of colors and finishes so you can choose a style that suits your taste and complements your property!

Treated Lumber Decks

Love the look of natural wood deck and stairs? A treated lumber deck ensures great resistance to the elements and lasts a long time with the proper care and maintenance. A wood deck and stair set can be completely customizable to your needs!

Fully Customizable

It is easy to build completely customized decks, stairs, and other built-in features for a solution that aligns with what you need and what you like.

Easily Maintained

Decks made from lumber need to be cleaned and sealed every few years. It’s easy to replace any boards or planks in case of accidental damage.

Long Lasting

With proper maintenance, your new custom-built lumber deck can last forty years or more!

Aluminum Stairs

Looking for removable stairs for your deck? Aluminum deck stairs are a lightweight, yet strong solution. Our aluminum steps have a comfortable, non-slip surface that makes step climbing easy for people of all ages and for pets.

Permanent or Adjustable & Adaptable Options

Aluminum staircases are made to be adjusted with the natural fluctuation in your beach. You can also remove and stack aluminum stairs neatly away for winter if needed!

Rust- & Corrosion-Free

Without iron, your aluminum stairs won’t rust but oxidize. When the stairs are exposed to water, an aluminum oxide film forms quickly on the surface. The hard oxide layer is resistant to further corrosion and protects the underlying metal.

Easy Prefabricated Installation

We sell and install prefabricated aluminum stair options. As simple as puzzle pieces, prefabricated aluminum stairs can be installed with your existing deck quickly and easily!

Retaining Earth Steps

Retaining earth steps are one of the most natural solutions you can get to beach access! Made from lumber and locally sourced sand, these steps are great for pathways on sloped landscapes.

Natural Solution to Lakefront Access

These steps work with your land, not against it, to give you better footpaths across your property.

Low Maintenance

You won’t need to stain, seal, or sand these stairs! Once installed, retaining earth steps exist naturally for years to come.

Customization to Meet Your Exact Need

We can customize your deck completely based on your property’s unique geography and your unique preferences. This includes custom-built landings, custom measurements, cable railings, built-in benches, hose fixtures, lighting, and more. Let us know how we can build your dream deck!

Preparing for A Successful Deck Build

The same erosion that damaged your previous beach steps also takes a toll on your dune. We recommend stabilizing eroded dunes with erosion control measures and planting vegetation before beginning your deck and stair construction.

See some of our erosion control and deck projects!

Dune Restoration

We help restore dune growth for the security of your property and the success and longevity of your future deck and stair construction.

Erosion Control Blankets

We install erosion control blankets and straw mats on dunes that have no vegetation or any type of foliage. They prevent dune shifting for a stable deck and stair build.


Keep your dunes in place with fast-growing beach grass, native to Michigan. The vegetation’s strong root systems minimize sand movement and keep the area stable for building.

Deck & Stair Installation – What to Expect


We will start by talking to you and getting an idea of what you are looking for.

Discuss Service

We will then send you an estimate with what you wanted, along with a brief picture of where the sections will be.

Schedule Time/Date

Depending on the changes you want to make, we can meet back out at your property with the information we sent to go over any changes or additions.

Work Onsite

Once the estimate is agreed upon, we accept a 50% down payment and begin collecting the materials needed.


We will then apply for a permit if needed, and begin the installation from the top of the dune down to the bottom.
