We design and install railings in a variety of styles and materials — each selected to bring out the best in your deck.
There are few spaces that accentuate your home like a deck. The right outdoor living space provides curb appeal, a place to entertain, and increases your home’s value. During our many years of deck installation, we have learned that no two houses are the same. That is why we exclusively offer custom decks to our Portland, OR clientele. We believe that to enjoy your outdoor living space as much as possible, it should be tailored to fit your lifestyle. To ensure this, we work with our customers every step of the way. During the process, we factor in your home’s style, your entertainment and living space needs, and your choice of material.
As experienced custom deck builders, we understand how to design decks that coordinate with your home’s unique setting. If your home’s best feature is the scenic views, then we recommend a multi-level or second level deck that takes advantage of your surroundings. This option is a great opportunity to enjoy dining al fresco with loved ones. If your home has a large garden, incorporate a gazebo. This provides a relaxing seating area surrounded by your favorite flowers and shrubs.
When we are designing custom decks, we consider your living space and entertainment needs. For the big family that loves to entertain, we recommend a larger deck outfitted with patio furniture that compliments the deck design. For the ultimate outdoor living space, we will work with you to incorporate a TV, fireplace, and designated dining space. If you want the ability to entertain in the rain in high heat, our team can implement a patio cover into the design.
When deciding on which material to use for your custom deck, it is important to consider both durability and style. We recommend opting for either ipe or Trex composite boarding. Ipe is a tropical hardwood, which is resistant to fire, mildew, and decay. With proper care, the wood can last for half a century. Ipe provides natural beauty to your custom deck. Trex is a wood alternative composite. This material is extremely durable and resistant to rotting, pests, and splintering. Trex is available in a variety of shades, so you can achieve any look you envision for your custom deck.

At Creative Fences and Decks, we provide arbor installation to Portland, OR, to enhance your outdoor living space.

Creative Fences and Decks offers rock retaining wall construction in Portland, OR. These structures are ideal for yards that are on inclines or homeowners who want additional depth in their yards. Retaining walls are a hardscape structure with many functional and visual benefits.
Our rock retaining wall construction services provide your outdoor living space with various functional benefits. They retain soil, prevent flooding, and provide usable space for additional plants.
The primary duty (and namesake) of this structure is to retain soil. In a yard with slopes, a retaining wall ensures that the soil doesn’t slide into other parts of your landscape.
Our Portland, OR, rock retaining wall construction also protects your yard from flood and soil erosion. Our rainy climate in the Pacific Northwest makes us susceptible to flooding and erosion, proving these structures to be a good investment. Designed with proper drainage in mind, they help by reducing the steep angles that naturally occur in your yard.
Whether your yard is small or comprised of multiple hills, our retaining wall designs increase the amount of usable soil space you have. By layering and elevating surfaces, you can increase the number of plants in your landscape.
We work with you every step of the way during our rock retaining wall construction in Portland, OR. Our team of professionals has been building retaining walls for years and has the knowledge to deliver the look that you want.
One of the biggest factors that will impact your retaining wall design is the material you choose. You have three main options for this: concrete, stone, and brick. For a wall that offers beautiful and natural texture, opt for a stone retaining wall. The addition of this hardscape structure adds eye-catching contrast to any outdoor space.
Enhance the look of the wall by outfitting it with your favorite seasonal appropriate flowers, vases, and other décor pieces.
