Start With a Deck Plan

When it’s time to improve your home with a great deck design, we make it easy. We start with your plan, and work with you to create a beautiful solution for your home. Do you want it elevated? Have a floating deck design? Do you need it around a pool, and need advice for framing? Once you complete our Deck Planning Checklist (see form on this page and we can send Checklist right to your inbox), you’ll be ready to meet with one of our experts to help you make it a reality.

Deck Design

You may already have a design in mind, or you may just know what you want to do with your deck space. We can help by creating a design in the computer, and giving you options to meet your needs. We also have a number of pre-designed templates from which to choose for design ideas, for front decks, rear decks, modern or traditional, and options for colors, materials, levels, stairs, railing, lighting, and more. If you’d like to see the latest in deck trends, we can show you what’s new, including innovations in pool decks, deck roofs, new colors, and steps. We also offer a wide variety of deck and stair railings to give your deck the look you want. We’re here to answer all your questions.

Deck Ideas

Sit with our decking experts to find the best solution for your home and yard. Have a pool that needs a deck? We have ideas to make it more fun and enjoyable. Want an elevated deck? We can help you plan the framing, and explore possibilities with levels, stairs, and features to improve your relaxation and party planning. Want a floating deck? Tell us your vision, and leave the details to us.

Choosing Materials

Once we create a design that fits your needs, we can explain the trade-offs between different building materials—from cedar decking to treated wood to composite decking, like Trex—and match a deck design to your budget. When all your choices are finalized, we put together a materials list, and can place your order. Are you thinking about composite decking, but aren’t sure if it’s right for you? Ask one of our experts about the trade-offs.

Building Advice

Are you planning to build your own deck, or hiring a contractor? That can help determine what types of materials and design choices you make, as they affect the ease of building and the budget. We can offer free, professional advice about what the job entails, and help you make the right decision, along with helpful tips, and labor-saving ideas. Learn more about building a deck here.
