Adding a deck to your home provides you with an outdoor area to relax as well as entertain friends and family. Of course, there are a wide range of designs and material options to consider. Here at Family Fence of Utah, we pride ourselves on the kind of honesty and quality that will help you design the deck of your dreams.

It’s worth noting that we do not work directly with any one brand. Some providers have deals designed with certain wholesalers and they try to steer their clients to use those products. Being open to the vast range of fencing and deck products frees us to help you explore the options needed to meet your personal vision.

One of the first decisions in the deck design process is to choose the general material you’d like to use.

Some people choose wood for its natural warmth and low initial cost. Here at Family Fence, Douglas fir is a popular option as is cedar or pressure-treated lumber. One of the minor drawbacks of a natural wood deck comes in the form of long-term maintenance. As the years go by, the deck might need repainting, staining or minor sanding. Exterior facing hardware elements and decorative pieces might need replacing or regular upkeep.

Man-made deck materials, like composite, PVC, and vinyl, might cost more for the initial installation. However, these materials don’t need as much routine care and maintenance. This can save you some time and money further down the line.

Regardless of the material you choose, the specialists at Family Fence will help you design and install a high-quality deck to enjoy for many years to come.
