Getting Started with DecksDirect

Getting started on your deck project can be tricky, whether you have someone build it for you or you're a DIYer. You've maybe never installed anything deck related before, or just don't know enough to confidently tell someone what you want. A million questions can come up during this process like, what colors do I want? How do I wire my lighting? How far should my balusters be spaced? How do you even install a section of railing?

The good news is that DecksDirect is here to help you every step of the way. Our Getting Started page is packed with a wealth of deck knowledge, as well as inspiration galleries and other services that are available to you through DecksDirect. With the addition of our new Glossary section you will also be able to better understand and explain exactly what it is that you need.
