At Austex Fence and Deck, we’re passionate about decks because nothing utilizes a backyard living space better than a well-built Austex deck. Decks are Austin’s favorite yard feature, since they are simply great for capturing that special view of the lake, sunrises or sunsets. Whether a simple platform deck or a multilevel extravaganza, an Austex deck makes any backyard more fun.
An Austex Deck can also be a practical solution to an unruly lawn, a sloped yard, erosion, or running water. In either case, an Austex deck will be an extension of your indoor living space that’s well designed and an excellent setting for relaxing, dining, or entertaining. Austex Fence and Deck specializes in “Making Backyards Fun!”
A properly designed and planned Austex deck will:
- Encourage outdoor living year-round.
- Associate easily with steps or fences in any landscaping plan.
- Be well planned to allow for future additions
- Include elements like benches, tables, flower boxes, or storage units.
- Add privacy to your home.
- Add to the unique features of your home.
- Enhance a poolside area.
- Be used for multiple activities at various times of the day.
- Make better use of challenging Central Texas land spaces, such as damp, rocky, or relatively uneven terrain.
- Add an aluminum adjustable pergola or aluminum awning

Ipe is a very attractive, high quality hardwood and Ipe is the finest quality decking material available, since it is an extremely dense, tight-grained wood.
Ipe is generally deep rich brown in appearance with some red and amber hued accents. In addition to its greater strength than other decking woods, it has the highest rating for insect and decay resistance. Most notably, this incredibly hard wood does not require finishing and will not deteriorate over time as other woods do.
Cedar wood is well suited for decks and outdoor stair construction.Â Cedar is naturally decay-resistant, light in weight, easy to work with, and complements any architectural style. Cedar holds up well in the intense Central Texas sun and although it will gray over time if not stained every couple of years, it is not prone to cracking and splintering like treated pine decks.
Redwood offers beauty, longevity, and easy maintenance. At Austex Fence and Deck, we use only virgin timber, so our old growth redwood forests will remain untouched. The beauty, durability and exceptional dimensional stability of Redwood makes it a good choice for intricately crafted outdoor applications. Redwood will also gray over time if not stained.
Treated Pine Deck
