Weston Leavens, founder of Deckmaster Fine Decks, Inc.

Deckmaster Fine Decks, Inc. designs and builds decks to blend with the architecture of its customers’ houses and integrate with their landscapes, which results in outdoor living spaces that are inviting, durable and functional. The company also designs and builds patio covers, and it offers expert deck repair and refinishing that can add years of life to existing decks.

Founder Weston Leavens started building decks and patio covers in the early 1980s, and today he puts his decades of inventiveness and award-winning skill to work creating outdoor living spaces throughout the Bay Area. Mr. Leavens is also the inventor of the Deckmaster Hidden Fastening System, which has become the industry standard for solving problems created by water seeping through nail holes and causing decay. “By combining the advantages of this hidden fastening system with the best low-maintenance synthetics, redwood, cedar and exotic hardwoods, I’m able to give my clients stunning decks that last a lifetime,” says Mr. Leavens.

Mr. Leavens is a past winner of the National Redwood Deck contest, and in 2008 he won the “Build a Deck, Win a Deck” contest sponsored by the California Redwood Association.

Company Philosophy

“We take pride in our excellent listening skills—as our clients explain their visions, we interpret what they want and blend it with the realistic possibilities of their sites. Our goal is to create sturdy, elegant, aesthetically pleasing structures that last for generations.”
