Free Online Deck Designer


By ProMatcher Staff



Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer, or you are planning to hire a contractor, the first step in the deck building process is to develop a design. You have an idea of what you want, but you need to get the design from the virtual to the visual, so it can become a reality. The Home Depot website has a free online deck designer that can help you do just that.



Once registered and logged in, you have access to an amazing, dynamic deck designer. The designs are highly customizable, and there are tabs that allow every imaginable view--plan view, joist layout view, dimension view, post view and even a 3D view! Best of all, the site creates a list or “Bill of Materials” which you can give to your contractor or lumberyard.

The site does have a few limitations: you can’t print without saving; and, you can only save five versions of your design. There may be some workarounds for both issues, but all in all, it’s a great tool.

Don’t forget, at any point in the process you can always consult a professional. Use ProMatcher to receive a quote from a local deck builder. This is a fast and free service that saves you time and helps you receive multiple quotes for your project.
