Deck Designer by AZEK
Create Your Dream Deck
Here at Fox, we’ve been impressed by how far decking has come since the early days of composite materials. Composite deck board is now in a whole new league, almost demanding that builders and remodelers pay attention. But, with prices fairly high and homeowners still reluctant – our suggestion: have you customers start designing their AZEK dream deck — right here and now — with AZEK’s interactive deck design tool. Choose the size, shape and color of your deck. Add levels, stairs and railings. Create and save as many deck ideas as you’d like. When complete, you can print out the following:
- A 3-D model of your dream deck
- A suggested materials list
- Installation guidelines
- Helpful construction tips
Ready to Design? Here’s How to Get Your Customers Started.
Make sure you meet these system requirements:
- Windows operating system.
- Screen Resolution: 1024×768 resolution.
- The deck designer requires Java 1.5 or higher. If a suitable version is not already installed on your computer, launching the designer will install it for you. If it does not automatically install, you may download it yourself here.
- Cookies enabled. (How do I do this?)
- A two-button mouse is required. We HIGHLY recommend the mouse have a scroll wheel as well.
- If prompted, you must allow the ActiveX component to run.
- When prompted, “The application’s digital signature has been verified. Do you want to run the application?”, published by DIY Technologies, you must accept by clicking “Run”.

Remember before starting any project, engage an architect or other building professional, and check your local building codes for the construction requirements in your area.
