Deck Supports and Deck Pedestals: How to Choose

Use pedestals and supports to install decks on rooftops, balconies, over cracked concrete patios, and more! Pedestals and supports work with any surface material: wood tiles, traditional strigner and plank decks, stone, composites, or concrete. DecksDirect carries supports from Bison Innovative Products and from MRP Supports.

With the different types, heights, and brands, it can be difficult to choose the perfect ones for your project. Discover the different features of each with the comparison chart below.
