A sturdy backyard deck can be a great place to relax and soak up the sun, or lay by the pool. We build decks of all shapes, sizes, and dimensions out of high quality materials and also offer the option to stain.

Composite Decks and Vinyl Decks

Composite Decks are a popular choice for homeowners in Austin looking for low-maintenance, long-lasting decking materials. Made from a blend of recycled materials, including plastic and wood fibers, composite decking is resistant to fading, staining, and mold. It is also incredibly durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions, making it perfect for the Texas climate. With a variety of colors and finishes available, composite decking can be customized to match any style or aesthetic. Plus, it’s eco-friendly and a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Invest in a Composite Deck and enjoy your outdoor space without the hassle of constant upkeep.

Western Red Cedar Decks

Western Red Cedar Decks are the perfect addition to any Austin backyard oasis. Known for its natural beauty, durability, and resistance to insects and rot, Western Red Cedar is a popular choice for decking materials. Not only is it strong and long-lasting, but it also provides a warm and inviting atmosphere for any outdoor space. Whether you’re looking for a traditional or modern style, a Western Red Cedar Deck can be customized to fit your unique design preferences. With proper maintenance, your deck will stand the test of time and provide endless enjoyment for years to come. In past years these decks were a top choice however since the pandemic the price of composites has dropped significantly to compete with Cedar decks, maintenance free. Yet you cannot compare to the beauty of real, natural wood!

Exotic Wood Decks (ipe, Tigerwood, etc.)

For a luxurious and unique look, Exotic Wood Decks are the perfect choice. Exotic woods like Ipe, Tigerwood, and Cumaru are not only beautiful, but they’re also incredibly durable and resistant to weather and insects. Their natural grain patterns and rich colors create a stunning and exotic feel that will elevate any outdoor space. While they do require some maintenance to maintain their beauty, the investment in an Exotic Wood Deck is well worth it. Our team of experts will help you select the perfect wood species and design to create a one-of-a-kind deck that will impress for years to come.

Types of Decks

There are many different materials available to us nowadays for deck building. While your subframe will typically always be pressure treated pine, you have many more options for the decking itself

Composite Decking

This has always been the most durable decking – nowadays its often the most affordable as well. I would recommend composite decks over any other material in this day and age – barring a desire for natural beauty.

Western Red Cedar Decking

Formerly the most common decking and one of the most beautiful – cedar stands out! Although you’ll have to maintain it with staining every few years, cedar can last for decades!

Ipe/Exotic Decking

Exotic hardwoods such as tigerwood, ipe, and kebony are more expensive but can last as long as composite decking with less maintenance that cedar. The only downside is the price 😉

We are very pleased with our 4ft bull panel fence. Quality and craftsmanship was not skipped with this company. Our quote was also very fair. They built our composite deck as well and it turned out great! The owner was also very communicative and had someone come back out in a timely fashion to finish up.

Fionn and his crew are hardworking, knowledgeable, and precise. We had an interesting task that took some brainstorming and creativity and Build It ATX never wavered to get the job done. We are beyond happy with our new fence and driveway gate as well as our all around experience. Can’t wait to use Build It ATX for other projects around our home!

For years I wished our patio was covered but was cautious about pulling the trigger. Recently a neighbor told me about Build it ATX & I'm so glad we decided to go with them. They did an outstanding job! Fionn was very knowledgeable and made the process very easy. I'm so very pleased with the construction of the addition and all the trades men that were involved. I highly recommend this company!

Fionn and Build it ATX from start to finish. At first I was apprehensive getting a bid from them but for the initial phone call my wife had to the project manager that came out we felt like they were confident, answered all of our questions (which we had a lot) and weren’t salesy or tried to pressure us. We went back and forth about budget and design and they were super responsive every step of the way. This project was definitely an investment but one we were willing to make to get our deck done right. I tend toward DIY and was so glad I didn’t even attempt this deck project. The crew that came out to do the job was so hard working, professional and caring to our property. They got the job done in a timely manner and cleaned up like never happened. Now we have a beautiful and huge deck that we are going to enjoy for years to come. Thank you to Fionn and Build it ATX for helping our vision come to life. Would highly recommend. Worth every penny Thank you

Build it ATX is the best! Luego de entrevistar a 7 contratistas para nuestro proyecto en Southwest Austin, Fionn resulto ser por lejos el mejor de todos. Conoce mucho el mercado y materiales de construcción y se preocupa por explicar en detalle en que consiste el trabajo, sus etapas y expectativas. Sus bids son transparentes, detalladas y con precios justos en un mercado que en mi opinion, esta injustamente demasiado caro. Excelente comunicación entre sus trabajadores y el cliente. Nuestro primer proyecto fue un retaining wall y reemplazo de cerca que quedo perfecto! Ahora seguiremos trabajando con Build it ATX para construir un covered patio, deck de Cumaru, outdoor kitchen y mucho mas. No podemos estar mas contentos! Recomiendo 100%.

I live in Houston and was sent to Austin by my ministry leader to assist his brothers with a roof, I didnt have any contacts in Austin that I knew in Home Improvement until I contacted Build It ATX and the owner, (Fionn Leonard) called me right back. I was looking for some shingles and I was trying to get a better price for them. We talked about it and Fionn ended up calling Lowe's in Austin, he got me his discount for the material and got it delivered quickly like 24hrs. from the time we ordered them. ANYWAY WE WILL BE IN AUSTIN AGAIN AND WE WILL BE IN TOUCH.

Not only are these guys reliable and true to their word, they were communicative, helpful and genuine. The finished product was perfect and the fence looks great, there were a few bumps and bruises along the way but they were upfront and solutions oriented and offered to fix them asap. Really appreciate there are good people like this still in Austin, 100% would recommend! Tyler and Fionn and their team were great to work with

Build it ATX was a breath of fresh air after previous negative contractor experiences. Their communication was impeccable, and they completed our project on-time and exceeded our expectations. The estimate was provided quickly and was straightforward. The crew used high-quality materials and did excellent finish work. Fion, the owner, was hands-on, regularly on-site, and ensured everything was completed to my satisfaction. I am extremely pleased with the covered patio and the concrete work and texture and paint on our pool deck. I highly recommend Build it ATX and will definitely use them for any future remodel needs.
