I love this website but if there are plans for future enhancement please consider a special section devoted to deck building. If I missed an area devoted to deck building, please accept my apology.

You can use the search feature, or just post questions in this forum. We read them all, and have several deck builders with tons of experience who can help you.

You're both right (although I suppose this thread should be moved to the suggestions topic).


Deck building is different enough from home construction, and a lot of DIYers would do one but not the other. And there are a lot of questions about deck topics on their own; I think a separate category would be useful and have enough content.

There are several websites with forums for professional deck builders and these will provide the information you need. A poorly built deck can kill people so it is not a typical DIY and hope for the best kind of project.

Many pro deck builders in my area are pretty clueless and self-taught and so with my own deck I did the research and design and bought the materials and hired the contractor and then managed his workers from start to finish to be sure it was done right.

I agree and it would be easy for new people to find what they might be looking for.
