The Traditional Decking Option

Wood decking is, by far, the most popular type of decking material used today. With its wide variety of styles, ease of installation, and cheaper cost, it has been the industry leader forever.

We build wood decks out of various materials but only use Grade 1 lumber. The lumber you purchase from a local store is Grade 2 or 3. The materials we use include pressure-treated wood, IPE decking, and Tigerwood decking.

All of our wood decks are built to what we call, "Code Plus." Basically, we go above and beyond the standard code recommendations to ensure that your wood deck not only looks as good as you imagined but that it stands the test of time.

Advantages of Wood Decking

There are many advantages of installing a wood deck on your home. Modern advancements in wood treatments (pressure-treated), ensure your deck will last a long time. We also back our decks with a two-year warranty.

For many, wood decking has a superior aesthetic and feel—nothing comes close to the natural grain look wood offers. Wood decks are easily customizable with a limitless variety of styles, stains, and sealants available on the market. 

Cost Of Wood Decking

Wood decking is cheaper than its composite decking counterpart up front, but can cost more in the long run due to maintenance costs. Things like resealing, staining, cracks, rot, and splinters can all factor in to future expenses required to maintain your wood deck. Costs also vary based on what type of wood materials you decide to use.

The Sexton Deck Builders were very professional and willing to take on a difficult porch/deck rebuild that turned out so much better than we imagined it would. They did what they said they would do for the price that they quoted. They showed up early each day and got to it! They cleaned up each day and were glad to listen to concerns and answer questions. We are happy to recommend Jeremy, Tonya and their team of skilled professionals.

They were more than fair in a situation where we were at a disadvantage. Now we have a beautiful and functional deck that we enjoy every day. Sexton started on time, did an excellent job, cleaned up everything before they left and finished right on time.! Thank you so much Jeremy and Tanya! Bottom line - we would highly recommend Sexton Deck Builders. They more than deserve their 5-star rating!

We just needed a simple star gazing deck. We checked with 3 other deck builders in the area and they didn't come close to comparing with Tanya and Jeremy. Sexton under promised and over delivered at every step of the process. Great craftsmanship, great staff. Everyone was knowledgable and cared about whether or not we were happy with the results. They put a big smile on the faces of my family and friends. I would highly recommend them. They are pros!

Sexton Deck Builders was a top notch company to work with. They rebuilt our multilevel deck and stairs along with several modifications we requested. Additionally they installed new rails along our retaining wall. They took a lot of pride in their work and gave us a finished high quality product. We would highly recommend them!

The Sexton Deck Builders, from the office to the on-site workers, were extremely professional to work with. They knew how to work with the county to get the permits done and the required inspections completed. They communicated each step of the process. The deck was completed in a timely matter (around the rain) and it was well built.

We are thrilled with our new decks & screened porch! Sexton Deck Builders are great to work with. We appreciated their valuable design suggestions. They show up on time and are excellent craftsmen. They are very pleasant and professional to work with. Oh, and no Trilliums were killed during the construction! 🙂 Highly recommended!
