Deck Designer

System Requirements: Requires Java 1.4 and Adobe Acrobat 3.0+ If you do not have these applications, you may be prompted to download them.

PC Platform: Windows 98SE, ME, NT, 2000, and XP, Internet Explorer 4+, Netscape 7+

Macintosh: 0SX v10.3+, Safari 1.2.2+

Tips for Chrome users: Because of changes to the latest versions of Chrome, the following steps need to be done prior to running the Deck Designer software:

  • While in Chrome, either cut and paste this line into your browser URL line or type in: "chrome://flags/#enable-npapi"
  • This will take you directly to a link highlighted in YELLOW - Click the “Enable” button
  • Click the Relaunch button that now appears at the bottom of the configuration page.

Also, if there’s issues running the software otherwise, or on other web browsers, Java commonly can do an automatic update which seems to make it go corrupt sometimes. Uninstall all versions of Java and then go to to install a fresh new version of Java.

From style and size to functionality, materials, options and price, our Deck Designer can help you create the deck that's perfect for your lifestyle and your home.

Whether you're dreaming of a multi-tiered masterpiece or something a little more modest, whether Top Choice Pressure Treated, Composite or Cedar - your deck starts here... and it's easy!
