UglyDeck DIY Academy

No Experience?
No Problem.

Save thousands and DIY your deck with the help of our academy and a free coach who personally knows your project.

DIY Made Easy and Safe

Hosted by DIY Dave and master carpenter Pat, we apply the tips and tricks the pros use to craft a superior deck.

Whether it’s your first deck project or you are a seasoned pro, our goal is to make the process safer, easier, and faster.
