The History

It all began back in 1972 when Larry Sexton, no more than a kid with a dream, began building his career, working as a union apprentice carpenter. While learning the trade from seasoned professionals and master constructors, Larry earned his Florida General Contractor’s License, going on to work in the residential, commercial, industrial, and environmental sectors of the industry.

After moving to Georgia, Larry opened his own business and began building decks under the name of Atlanta Deck. In 2014, Reliable Deck was born and he continued designing and building custom decks, screen porches, and under-decking.

Larry’s dream to spearhead a company known for its quality work, customer care, and reliable performance not only came true, but surpassed all expectations. His wife, Susan, manages the office and his son, Jonny, joined the team in 2018. Reliable Deck was built on good, old-fashioned family values with honesty, respect, and safety at the core of all construction.

Lars Construction, LLC, owned and operated by Larry Sexton, is the parent company of Reliable Deck. Larry holds a General Contractor’s license in the state of Georgia (GCI 000276) and in the state of Florida (CGFC 31529).
