Home ownership comes with many benefits. Having a great outdoor space to relax or entertain guests on a pleasant day can serve as a great stress reliever. Adding a custom deck from Family Fence can transform your outdoor space to meet your vision.

We often advocate a step-by-step approach to help you design the worry-free deck of your dreams. Our helpful staff will work with you to understand the costs and benefits of different building materials and hardware.

With a timber-based deck, we often advocate Douglas fir as it has a low moisture content and superior resistance to mold and bugs. Our standard on most projects calls for sturdy 5×5 support posts rather than the 4×4 posts. We also use 2×10-inch joists to join stringers with 2×10-inch planks. This provides superior lifespan for your deck beyond common 2×6 or 2×8-inch lumber.

At the start of the installation process, our technicians will level, square, and plumb all the elements of the deck frame. You may see our installers eying down the joists as we crown all of our lumber. This ensures that your deck surface stays straight and level for many years to come.

If you live in Utah and you’d like to develop a deck to meet your personal vision, you should call 801-836-2841 to speak to a staff member at Family Fence.
