New Fiberon Deck Designer tool is easier to use and gives you more design options

A recent industry report noted that since 2015 over 4 million people have used digital software to begin designing their outdoor spaces. Since our design tool is one of the options that consumers are using, we decided to put out a survey to really evaluate how we could provide the best design solution around.

When we received some feedback that our Deck Design Tool just wasn’t living up to its potential, we took the suggestions to heart and got down to business. Now, after a number of important adjustments, the Fiberon Deck Design Tool is back and better than ever.

A better user experience, comprehensive reporting, and fewer design limitations make the Fiberon Deck Design Tool the best it’s ever been.

If a digital tool isn’t easy to use, it won’t be helpful, so we started there. Since making the Fiberon Deck Design Tool faster and easier, we’ve seen a three-fold increase in projects completed in just the first week! And with an improved interface and a completely redefined user experience, you’ll find the tool to be more fun, maybe even a little addictive!

More shape options enable more creative deck designs. Explore the possibilities for yourself.

Now, there are a lot more ways to customize your outdoor space to better align with the aesthetic you’re looking for, including landscaping customization, accessory options, exterior wall, window and door options, and scene selection. Want to see how a porch might look against your house? You now have the option to upload a photo of your home. Picturing your deck in the forest? We’ve got you covered!

Scene selection is just one of the many feature improvements in the latest version of the Fiberon Deck Design Tool. See all the capabilities here.

Among the design enhancements are the ability to create a deck with multiple levels and even multiple board colors. For example, add a border around the deck’s perimeter (also known as picture framing) with a second board color or perhaps incorporate an eye-catching herringbone pattern or other special feature.

Everything you need to start your build in one, straightforward report

Perhaps the best part of all is the reporting feature that provides a complete deck design project plan for your creation. Once you’ve customized your porch or deck to your heart’s content, you can populate a report that provides features of the products you’ve selected, dealers and deck builders in your area, deck installation checklist, documentation you'll need to obtain permits, and even a breakdown of all of the materials you’ll need for the build, down to the last fastener.

Other exciting highlights of the tool include the following:

  • Free to use and you can create as many different designs as you’d like
  • Web-based so you don’t have to download any software
  • Better on screen resolution
  • Designs can easily be shared via social media

Product features are just the tip of the iceberg with the Fiberon Deck Design Tool’s new comprehensive reporting function.

And don’t forget that Fiberon also has a number of other online tools to help you through every step of the deck building process. From testimonials and easy sample ordering, to a Fiberon deck material cost calculator and a “find a builder” tool if you’d like to leave it to the experts, we bring the process to life so that you’re not left to wonder.
