Why use a deck planner?

Users will be able to produce detailed renderings, construction drawings and material lists with this software. These renderings can help homeowners see what a bamboo deck would look like on their home, as you can design the walls, doors, windows and even lights to match your own home perfectly! Even more important though, is the construction drawings and material lists that can be used to provide a budget your project.

Knowing the true amount of materials needed for a decking project is crucial, as cost is estimated by material. A key feature of the MOSO Bamboo X-treme® Deck Planner, the construction drawings and material lists are sure to please any contractor, deck builder and certified MOSO materials dealer. After completing their deck design, homeowners can locate a dealer in their area to order material from, using their renderings and material lists to put their deck plan into action.

The MOSO Bamboo X-treme® Deck Planner has a few features that are unique to a MOSO Bamboo X-treme® deck. First, you’re able to select from the various widths of MOSO Bamboo X-treme® decking boards (4” wide, 6” wide and 7” wide) to see how each will look and to properly estimate material needs. The program can estimate all MOSO bamboo decking related products, including facia boards to see the actual finished deck in all its beauty. Then finally, there is a tool that will age the deck to show you how the bamboo deck will naturally change to a grey color in the elements.

The MOSO Bamboo X-treme® Deck Planner is available to use online. Bring the vision of your outdoor space to life and start planning your beautiful bamboo deck today!
