CHESTERFIELD, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 22, 2018--MiTek ® announced that it has released a new version of the highly popular (formerly USP®Deck Designer ) that offers a series of improvements.

MiTek® Deck Designer™ is a free online interactive software program that helps building material retailers and their customers design their dream decks. The newest version of the software allows advanced customization of deck levels, as well as the direction, color and size of deck planks, among other features.

Users of MiTek®Deck Designer™ can easily design and shape multi-level decks in a 3D environment and create platform stairs, while visualizing their projects using a variety of decking and construction materials, ranging from wood to composite decking and metal. MiTek®Deck Designer™ even allows the design of glass infill railing and the creation of a complete material list once the design phase is complete.

Users of the MiTek Deck Designer software work through a simple, menu-driven system that can be used by anyone from beginner homeowners to the professional deck builders. The MiTek Deck Designer’s output also provides a materials cut list, along with permit submittals that can be saved, printed, emailed, and exported, so users can collaborate on designs and quickly share ideas.

“For building material dealers and retailers that deploy MiTek®Deck Designer™, this software tool has proved to be an extremely cost-efficient lead generator, with great ‘stickiness’ once a prospect is engaged in the design process,” said Michael Heisler, President of DIY Technologies, a MiTek company. “Now that we can use the tool to specify a wider range of building products, we expect our already expansive user base to grow even more.”
