Wood Deck Construction

Wood - A Material That Will Never Go Out Of Style

Wood is timeless. There’s something about it that just feels right, no matter where you use it. The magic flow of wood fibers and the way they blend with the environment makes wood a natural and beautiful choice for decks and any type of outdoor structure.

Yes, a wooden deck will require some maintenance. But that pales in comparison to the beauty you’ll get to look at every day. In terms of styles, you can stain your wood deck to match your home and its surroundings naturally, and adding extra features will increase its practicality.

We believe there’s no material more beautiful than wood. And we’re here to turn it into a spectacular deck that brings you joy and fills you with pride.

There are many beautiful and practical deck features you can choose to make your deck as functional as possible:

How To Make The Most Of Your Wooden Deck

The thought of rotten decks, moldy stairs, and deteriorating wood structures makes most homeowners think twice before going with a wooden deck.

But not all wood is equal. The type of lumber you choose for your deck and the way it’s built makes the difference between a wood deck that lasts for 5 years and one that lasts for 30.

We primarily use cedar wood when building decks. It’s the go-to choice for professional deck building, being very durable and naturally resistant to rot, moisture, and decay. Whether you need a new deck installed or just a few repairs on an older deck, you can count on us to keep your deck looking great.

We turn your backyard into a fun place that increases your quality of life, fast and easy.

Wood Deck Construction Prices

The size of a deck is the biggest driver of the total cost, and the shape can affect the price too. The major benefit of choosing a wood deck (besides its natural beauty and charm) is the ability to go custom without huge costs. As wood is more affordable than composite, you can easily get creative with benches, storage spaces, and other extras.

A wooden deck that’s regularly stained and maintained can last for decades too. And if you ever think of reselling your home, you can get back up to 72.1% of your costs.

What Our Customers Say

Your dream is our mission. Our customers say that we’re the finest carpenters they’ve ever met. We hope you’ll say the same!


We LOVE our beautiful new Forsman’s Finest deck! Travis and Shelley were so great to work with.

It took us a long time to decide what we wanted, but they kept updating their designs and offering suggestions until we had just what we wanted.

They designed and delivered what we expected down to the smallest detail, finished on time and within budget, completed all construction themselves, and provided craftsmanship and customer service that is unparalleled.

We highly recommend Forsman’s Finest if you’re in the market for a new deck…you will not be disappointed!

Harold and Denise Eucker


Forsman’s Finest completely exceeded all of our expectations.

Travis recently completed a new deck for us. He started when he said he would and even worked through the rain to be completed on time.

The skill and care that went into our new deck are top-notch.

Travis listened to what we wanted, told us what he could do, and executed flawlessly.

Highly skilled and very professional! We will definitely use Forman’s again and recommend it to anyone looking for a carpenter. Thank you!”

The workspace was always so clean and neat, both while you were working and at the end of each day.

We know that we are going to enjoy all the extra room on the deck and will be able to make better use of the patio, Thank you for making the process so easy.

We will highly recommend you to any who are considering your services
