Wood Decks

Central Texas customers choose wood deck materials for their natural, rustic design. Wooden decks also offer exceptional strength and durability and are easy to maintain. With a large variety of wood panel colors and materials to choose from, wooden decks are also extremely easy to customize. Finally, wood decks can be affordable compared to other decks materials, like synthetic decks.

Austex frequently works with premium, recognizable wood deck brands, including AZEK and TimberTech. We use only the highest quality of wood materials for our wood decks, including ipe, cedar, and redwood.

Ipe Decks

Ipe wood is a type of high-quality decking material that’s dense and durable. Central Texas customers can expect the following when they choose ipe decks:

  • Appealing design: Ipe decks feature a deep, rich brown appearance with red and amber-hued accents.
  • Fine-quality material: Ipe decks are made to be dense and tight-grained, which also makes them long-lasting.
  • Highly resistant: Ipe decks have the highest insect and decay resistance rating.
  • Low-maintenance: Ipe decks don’t require finishing and won’t deteriorate over time.

Ipe wood, often referred to as Brazilian walnut, is made from over 30 different types of wood. It’s one of the strongest and most durable wood materials and is often used in ornamental landscaping. Ipe wood is often chosen for its extremely durable design that’s resistant to mildew, insects, and heat damage without the need to pretreat it. Ipe wood is also sustainable and eco-friendly, making it an environmentally conscious choice.

Cedar Decks

Cedar decks are naturally lightweight and easy to work with, making them a popular choice for deck stairs. With cedar decks, Central Texas customers can expect:

  • Durable design: Cedar decks are naturally decay-resistant, meaning they won’t wear out as fast.
  • Versatile design: Cedar decks feature a versatile design that fits in with most architectural styles.
  • Heat-resistant: Cedar wood is also highly resistant to extreme heat, which is especially important in Central Texas.
  • Low-maintenance: Cedar decks won’t splinter or crack over time, making them a low-maintenance deck option.

Cedar wood requires some maintenance, as it’s known to gray. However, it won’t splinter or crack, even with minimal maintenance. Cedar decks are also a great choice for the environment and tend to last a long time, sometimes as long as 15-30 years.

Austex frequently creates durable, functional decks with many of our customers using cedar, ipe, redwood, and composite decking materials. If you’re not sure which decking materials are right for your Austin, Texas, home, reach out to one of our friendly representatives today.

Deck Railing

Deck railing systems comprise various materials and can improve your deck’s safety. They prevent people from falling from the deck or deck stairs while also giving your deck a consistent, modern design. Check out some of our favorite deck railing ideas:

Wood Deck Railing

Wood deck railings pair nicely with a Central Texas wood deck. You can paint a wood railing to match your existing deck or make it a darker or lighter color to create a unique, modern design.

Composite Deck Railing

Composite railing uses a mixture of natural wood fibers and plastic materials. This gives your deck railing a natural look that requires less maintenance. Composite railings also hold up well in inclement weather.

Iron Deck Railing

Iron deck railings are one of the most durable options, as they’re highly resistant to rust, corrosion, and decay. An iron deck railing is usually made with thick materials that make it an extremely strong choice for deck railings.

Cable Deck Railing

Cable deck railings are a good option if you want something other than wood or metal. Many central Texas residents also choose cable deck railing when they want a customized look because you can mix and match newels and posts.

What Others Say About Our Decks

Both crews were pleasant and done quickly.

WE LOVE OUR NEW ALL-CEDAR FENCE by AUSTEX FENCE ... they did a GREAT job from the estimate appointment thru the 2-day installation and our two neighbors that share the fence love it too! We had an all-cedar 6’ privacy fence built with #2 or better grade 5/8” X 6” cedar pickets and two cedar backer rails installed with metal posts including old fence tear down & haul away! We love how the cap & trim finished off the two public gate sections! PERFECTO! We were amazed at how your "gate guy" built the gates "on the fence" & cut it in half & it was an attached swinging gate ... it was like magic! Your crews were very skilled and did a super job! We were able to get an appointment for an estimate in one week and installation in two weeks in a very busy April 2022 following multiple tornadoes in the Austin metro. We highly recommend David Arkin our Residential Sales Representative ... he was on time, knowledgeable, professional, he took time to ask & listen to what we wanted and to answer all our questions at our estimate appointment, before we signed a contract, during the installation, and after installation. David's emailed 1-page estimate with drawing was easy to read and understand with all the correct measurements, details and cost breakdown for us to make a decision. AUSTEX also has a Residential Sales Coordinator who made the process run smooth and was available to answer questions. We purchased two extras ... the sprinkler insurance and cap and trim. We shared the cost with two neighbors & AUSTEX made it so easy for all 3 of us to pay our individual balances online ... so no collecting checks! Plus no service charge to use credit cards! Initially, I contacted 7 fence contractors, set estimate appointments with 4 fence contractors all who were recommended by my HOA neighbors … all 4 showed up! We received 4 estimates, 2 which we recommend. And 2 we don’t recommend due to lots of errors and missing info on their estimates. We selected AUSTEX FENCE because even tho they cost a little more they could install in two weeks (the other company was 6-8 weeks out), they only build ALL-cedar privacy fences, they try to reuse the existing post holes, easy to read estimate and easy for us & neighbors to pay online with no service charge to use credit cards. And AUSTEX FENCE has a 1-year warranty that covers defects in materials including the lumber and workmanship!

I hired Austex Fence & Deck to build a new wooden privacy fence surrounding the backyard. The fence looks great, construction started just a few days after the estimate, and it was completed in two business days. Every was responsive and easy to work with. I will definitely be recommending Austex to friends and family and will likely hire them again if we need more fence and deck installations or repairs.
