Deck Accessories

You know what you want in your new deck - a perfect outdoor oasis that fits your lifestyle.  At Star our goal is for you to enjoy years of comfort, so we work with you on the functionality of your new deck.  Often it's the little things that make the big difference: gate kits for the little ones (we carry both 2- and 4-footed ones); matching the deck screws to the surface or better yet, a hidden deck fastening system.  Let Star handle the little stuff so you can enjoy the big stuff!


Most deck railings are supported with posts that are part of the under carriage of your decks framework. The posts are constructed in this manner so they support the deck as well as the railing. These posts can be 4x4 or 6x6 in size and can be treated, redwood or rough cedar material. On  composite decks they are usually a composite sleeve over a treated post. Regardless of the post. material, you may choose to put a decorative cap on top. At Star we can special order decorative post caps in different sizes and styles for any existing or new deck posts.

Stair Stringers

The foundation for every set of stairs are stair stringers. These are the supports attached to the deck that the stair treads set on. Stringers are cut to provide a comfortable step height and depth. At Star we have pre-cut stair stringers in 3 sizes: 3-, 4- and 5-step heights. If you're not sure which would work best on your deck, one of Star's decking specialists can help determine the perfect solution. 

Post Base

The post carries the entire weight of the deck so a great deal of planning needs to go into the design and support system. Be sure and check local building codes before construction. Supporting the post can be done in different ways:

  • Poured concrete pier and a metal post base.
  • In ground perma-deckpost base with a footing. This system eliminates putting treated wood in the ground.

Whatever your decking design challenges, Star has solutions.
