highly researched comprehensive coverage. Written by a seasoned
building contractor, our Password Area contains hundreds of pages
and thousands of images to help show you how to get the job done right. Whether you're
planning a project of your own design or just need help answering a few tough
questions, our Password Area has the information you need.

How BestDeckSite Works
Three Main Areas
BestDeckSite is divided into three main areas. The "How-To" menu is
the first area and covers introductory deck and gazebo information. The
"Shopping" menu is the second area and has pre-packaged deck and gazebo
plans that are sold separately.
The third area of BestDeckSite.com is password
protected. This area may only be accessed by clicking "Log-In" under
the "Password" menu. When you
get a password to BestDeckSite.com, you'll be able to instantly log into the
Password Area and begin learning about how to build a deck or gazebo of your own
Note: The navigation menu expands when you log into the Password Area -
see example below.
In-Depth Coverage Password Area
Unsurpassed Value & Quality
We've spent thousands of hours researching building codes, consulting
with a Professional Engineer, and pouring through technical design
publications to develop the content presented in the Password Area. While others will simply tell you to bolt two boards together, we'll tell you how
many bolts to use, what size the bolts need to be, where to place the bolts, and
the type of corrosion resistant finish to get. Our content is that detailed.
We've distilled technical engineering practices into down-to-earth
construction advice. When you get a password, you can
rest assured you're getting absolutely the best deck and gazebo information
available anywhere. Testimonials
Whether you're looking for information on designing for snow loads,
framing for a spa, cantilevering floor joists, or want to make sure
your stairs and railings meet building codes, the Password Area of
BestDeckSite.com has it all. To get a sense of the the quality of coverage
available in our Password Area, please feel free to read through the
pages under the "How-To" menu. These pages are available to all visitors and
are intended to
begin to look what it means to really do the job right and to give you a
sense of the quality of information in the Password Area. To see a list of topics thoroughly discussed in the
Password Area, look over our Password Coverage Page
Easy To Use Tables & Calculators
Our tables and on-line calculators take the guess work out of sizing lumber
and framing your deck. Unlike other deck design software that falls
short of correctly laying out and sizing beams, joists, posts, and
footings, we've taken a different approach. Instead of trying to
build a single all-encompassing calculator that doesn't account for heavy
snow loads, spas, and cantilevered lumber, BestDeckSite provides individual
calculators to help you complete each of the design phases with ease.
Combined with step-by-step instructions, our tables and calculators can
answer all your design questions. Check out the screen
shots of the calculators available in the Password Area.
Gazebo and Deck Plans
While the Password Area covers the construction of
several different types of decks, it's primary focus is to help educate readers on how to design and
build a deck or gazebo of their own creation from scratch and/or to answer
important construction questions. Even if you've already purchased a set of
plans, we can help fill in the missing
pieces. On the other hand, if designing a project from scratch isn't
your "cup of tea", BestDeckSite separately sells high-quality pre-packaged
Plans and Gazebo Plans.
At BestDeckSite, we're so confident in the quality, depth and breath of
coverage accessible in our Password Area that we provide an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee.
