Meet The Owner

Luke Chapman started Carolina Decks in 2013 with the vision of building beautiful decks for Charlotte area clients while offering a personalized experience throughout the design-build process. Living through multiple home renovations gave Luke a unique perspective on the value that a good client-contractor relationship brings to any construction project. Blending his past career experience in both construction and sales, Luke strives to relate to each of his clients on a personal level to deliver a result that aligns perfectly with their needs.

Although Carolina Decks works with all decking materials, Luke has taken a particular interest in the latest innovations in composite decking. He finds daily inspiration in the exceptional durability and diverse range of design possibilities these modern materials offer. Luke has direct contacts with composite decking manufacturers and brings the expertise needed to help clients find and select the ideal product.

Luke is a graduate of the University of Alabama with a degree in Business Management and a family man at heart. He shares his life with his best friend and wife, and is a loving father to four children. He lives in the South Charlotte area.
