Adding or replacing a deck can accentuate your outdoor entertaining space while potentially increasing the value of your home. Of course, there is a variety of options to consider when planning a new deck. This includes materials, hardware, esthetics and accoutrements like a fire brazier, outdoor bar or a hot tub.

Here at Family Fence of Utah, our representatives understand that this can be a serious investment and we are passionate about helping you design the deck of your dreams. We can help you understand your material options ranging from natural wood to vinyl, capped composite or other artificial materials.

The quality of the joinery hardware and fasteners can also be a major factor in the quality, appeal and value of your new deck. Strong joists help ensure the boards fit firmly for a long time to come.

Our exacting standards typically call for using 2 X 10-inch joists and corresponding boards. This provides the final deck with superior strength over smaller widths of lumber, like a 2 X 6-inch or 2 X 8-inch.

We typically fasten our main joists to 5 X 5-inch support posts. This provides solid stability when compared to the final deck than using 4 X 4-inch posts offered by other manufacturers.

If you live in the state of Utah and you are contemplating a new or replacement deck, you should call 801-836-2841 to speak to one of the friendly representatives at Family Fence.
