Deck Essentials

Choosing the Right Material:

Having options is great for consumers, but too many options can be overwhelming. There are more options for decking and railing today than ever before, so let Carter Lumber help you find the right material to fit your project and your budget. In addition to composite decking, Carter Lumber carries treated lumber, composite rail, pavers, lighting, and hardware. We are a one-stop shop for all of your building needs.

Added Touches:

A deck is an extension of the home. Make it memorable by adding lighting and railing packages tailored to your project’s style and budget.


Illuminating your space ensures safe navigation and provides a warm and welcoming ambience. Outdoor lighting is an easy and budget-friendly addition to make your space feel more personalized and finished.


In addition to function and safety purposes, deck railings can infuse your project with personality and style. One of the latest 2022 deck trends calls for ditching—or rethinking—the traditional railing. Let us help you choose the right material to suit your project, whether it is modern, classic, or somewhere in between.

Unparalleled Customer Service and Delivery:

For 90 years, we have been serving professional builders, contractors, and DIYers. Since 1932, we have been dedicated to providing exceptional service and quality building materials at competitive prices to our family of customers.

And unlike other companies that pass your orders off to an uninvested third party for delivery, we have our own company-owned fleet of delivery vehicles operated by fully licensed drivers who make every single delivery of our products.

We feel it's essential to run our fleet because no one cares more about your building materials arriving on time and in pristine condition than we do.
