Who We Are

We're a family owned and operated company in Minnesota, and we've built our team to include great people with varied industry experience. We understand the pleasures of deck living – not to mention the satisfaction that comes from building a deck your family or client will enjoy for years.

Our team participates in product training sessions so when we bring on a new product, we can offer the same exceptional service you’ve come to know. We also know that it’s important for you to have information at your fingertips, so we add videos, photos, and documents to each product page.

Product Selection

DecksDirect has the largest online selection of decking accessories with more than 10,000 products available. We offer a wide variety to fit every style and budget, but only sell products that we can stand behind. If a product doesn’t meet our standards, than we don’t offer it. We also take customer feedback and reviews very seriously and use them to help decide which products to offer.
