Often times, when building a deck on rough or hilly terrain, especially if you are building a wraparound deck or patio, you will want to consider if your deck is at risk of sinking into mud or soft earth if it is over a space that is prone to flooding. Decks can be built to withstand this frequent water, though it requires even more precaution and engineering when designing the initial structure. It’s important to talk to your deck designer about these issues when you are planning the first step of the design and build so you won’t have structural issues later on down the road.
Alternatively, if you are not looking for a raised deck, Austin Fence and Deck company can also custom build ground-level decks, which are often confused for patios. Ground-level decks are braced by a small frame that sits near to the ground, and most ground-level decks don’t raise more than twelve inches off of the ground. These kinds of decks are perfect when designing a deck around patio furniture, sun shades, and even spas and pools. If you are looking for a luxurious outdoor space for grilling, cooking or even relaxing outdoors, we can make your dream a reality at Austin Fence and Deck company, located in Austin, TX. We are proud to have the most professional deck builders in the region working with our trained designers to bring together a quality product that will last a lifetime with proper maintenance.
It doesn’t just stop at decks either, we can also handle pergolas and arbors, trellises and much more. Whether you’re looking to spice up the design of your backyard or garden and create a fantastic earthen getaway sure to amaze any guests you bring, or simply add curb appeal and luxury to your weekend family gatherings and evening grill-outs with friends, we can take care of the job and get it done right the first time around.
Need something a little larger? We can handle that too. At Austin Fence and Deck Company, we also custom build gazebos to match the desired design and individual needs of every one of our customers and we can even match it to the design of their home. Many people think that wooden gazebos are the only way to go, and they may be surprised to learn that there are many different types of gazebos that you can build for your home or garden today. From wrought-iron to traditional country wood, and even vinyl. Vinyl is a fantastic option to go with if you are looking for a nearly maintenance-free gazebo.
Often times, a vinyl gazebo may need a pressure washing once, possibly twice per year to remove grime and soot off of it. There is no need to repaint and no need to re-finish the vinyl because the color is made into the material. It is, however, hard to achieve a rustic country look with vinyl, and this is where wood is much more suited to the task. If a natural look and feel are important to you, you may want to consider having a wooden gazebo built for you. A wooden gazebo can be refinished and restained or painted to match any new color scheme you may choose for your garden or home, allowing you to have the freedom of creating a new design however often you choose.
Austin Fence and Deck Company don’t have the fence in the name for no reason. We also specialize in building beautiful fences to accommodate any home or garden design, whether you’re looking to build a fence for the purpose of beauty or of privacy. Perhaps your neighbor is getting nosy or you simply want to keep stray animals out (or pets in).

We provide high-quality fences with capable installations that are guaranteed to last with proper and timely care and maintenance.
