Outdoor Creations owner Jake Nicks at a job site with his father.
Jake Nicks established Outdoor Creations three years ago. He and his team of experts consider the outside of your home just as important as its interior. Outdoor Creations provides large pool houses, hardscaping, roofing, French drains, and Jake’s favorite, complete backyard renovations for outdoor living at its finest. Outdoor Creations also builds quality homes, remodels condos and apartments, and flips homes.
Jake spent his youth in Las Vegas, where his father was a construction project manager. Jake grew up working with his father and eventually came to Broken Arrow to attend Rhema Bible College. Upon graduation, he began doing what he had enjoyed all his life, construction and remodeling. Jake soon found that customers were asking him to do a variety of projects and decided that starting his own business was a natural progression.
Jake and the Outdoor Creations team provide a full range of superior services at competitive rates to residents of greater Tulsa and beyond. “Our company has grown from a two-person operation to a full staff of professionals that are able to meet your every landscaping and remodeling need,” says Jake. “By remaining consistently dedicated to performing at the highest standards, we continue to build long-term relationships with our clients.” The team’s reputation for customer satisfaction has made Outdoor Creations a household name in their industry.
All of Jake’s employees are background checked, and the company is fully insured. Outdoor Creations has a perfect rating with BBB and Angie’s List. “We don’t farm out projects to independent contractors, and our customers are assured they will receive the highest standard of products and services whenever they hire us to do a project.” Although Outdoor Creations does not perform plumbing or electrical requirements, Jake recommends companies specializing in these areas whenever they are needed on a project. This is explained at the onset of a project, and you will be invoiced directly by the company doing the service.
When you’re ready to begin remodeling or expanding your outdoor living experience, the Outdoor Creations team will consult with you to determine your exact needs for improving your home’s living space, whether inside or outside. You’ll be provided expert advice, creative ideas and an estimate to complete the project. When the job is finished and meets or exceeds your expectations, you’ll pay the amount agreed upon – never more than the amount presented in the estimate.
If you’re thinking of making an idea happen – a pool, patio, pergola, fireplace or fire pit – Outdoor Creations will visit with you and present a free, three-dimensional design for you to consider for your backyard.
Jake loves to please customers and says, “There’s nothing I enjoy more than presenting a finished product. It’s very important to me that I consistently do my best to deliver the highest standards on every job, for every person. It’s very rewarding when we deliver a finished project that exceeds our customer’s expectations.”
