What We Do

Instead of being a weekend warrior always working on your deck, fence or porch you can enjoy relaxing on it instead of scraping, painting or finding splinters on it. Here is what we can give you whether it’s a deck or deck makeover, porch or porch makeover, fencing, railings or pergolas.


Decks and Deck Makeovers

Better Than Wood’s deck definition: A maintenance-free sanctuary to relax and enjoy with your family. All our vinyl and composite deck materials are maintenance-free. They are superior alternatives to any wood product. To give your current deck a makeover, we can build on your existing structural framing and simply replace the decking boards and railings.


Porches and Porch Makeovers

Whether it’s new or old, we can build an entirely new porch or replace those old wood porch poles and railings with new vinyl ones! Built for beauty and safety, our porch products offer exceptional strength with railings and posts made of rigid PVC and reinforced with aluminum.


Unique Appearance: Our posts are decorative or turned to match your existing wood posts. You can add decorative scrolls, which are also maintenance-free, to complete your porch project.

Available in Tan or White.


Not many things in life are both attractive and maintenance free, unless you're talking about our vinyl fencing. With our fencing, you can avoid some of the problems encountered with wood fencing.
