DeckMaster is now TrueDecks! Same ownership, same services, new name.

Family Owned & Operated

Ever since TrueDecks was created in 1999, we’ve been a local family-owned and operated company that takes pride in providing professional, high-quality deck washing and construction services. Our founder and president, Jose Ugalde, previously worked for a few different deck companies before realizing that there was a better way to clean decks than by pressure washing them. He created TrueDecks and the unique revolutionary PressureLess™ Cleaning System & Preservation System. Over 20 years later, the results of our deck washing service is still leaving homeowners amazed. In addition to deck cleaning, TrueDecks has expanded its services to include fence building/repair, home exterior cleaning and deck building/repairs, and are now one of the leading deck building/deck cleaning companies in Maryland and Virginia. Based in Gaithersburg, MD, we serve all of Montgomery County, Howard County, Frederick County, and Fairfax County, and have received the Angie’s List Super Service Award for high quality customer service multiple times.

    Our Most Popular Services

    Deck Builder

    Decks are a valuable addition to any home. They provide homeowners with an outdoor space to entertain guests and relax.

    Deck Repair

    Do you own a deck? If so, you probably love using it to entertain guests, host summer barbecues, or enjoy the weather. However, when your deck suffers wear and tear from year-long exposure to the harsh Maryland weather, it may need repair services to get it back in tip-top shape.

    Deck Maintenance

    Hardwood decks are known for their rich colors and wood grain patterns, and the best way to highlight these is with deck staining. Unfortunately, your deck’s stain can deteriorate over time, leaving it looking unattractive and exposed to the elements.

    Patio Building

    Looking for a beautiful patio for your outdoor living space? Patios are great for adding style to your home and are a great place to entertain.  Patios are durable, low-maintenance, and a perfect way to add a stunning extension to your home.

    Deck Cleaning expert

    Featuring Our PressureLess™ Cleaning System

    Most deck cleaning companies in Maryland and Virginia use traditional pressure washing methods for their deck cleaning services. While this might sound acceptable, high pressure can actually cause serious damage to the wood of your deck and home. TrueDecks uses a revolutionary new process – the PressureLess™ Deck Cleaning & Preservation System™. With this low-pressure system, your wood stays healthy and strong, while still receiving the cleaning it needs. The way it cleans is through the use of a safe yet powerful chemical mix that actually opens the pores of the wood and restores its natural tone. This allows for a deck cleaning unlike any other and is the perfect preparation for a sealant or stain.

    Do you have any questions?

    Our deck was in pretty bad shape. It needed cleaning, staining, a post replaced and leveling. They did a fantastic job. I also had them replace some fence posts and rails on a split rail fence. Very satisfied with the fence work as well.

    DeckMaster recently replaced the entire flooring of my deck as well as cleaning and staining the deck and fence. I am extremely happy with the job they did. My deck has never looked better. I have used DeckMaster before and plan to use them in future. They are professional, their work is excellent, and their prices are reasonable. I have nothing but good things to say about them. Highly recommended.

    We recently replaced our backyard deck and installed a new patio with DeckMaster. We started out by speaking with 6 different companies and were most impressed with DeckMaster. They did an amazing job from start to finish. As part of our free estimate we even had the owner of the company come out to provide his insight to the project. He presented ideas we weren’t even thinking about that in the end made the design look fresh and modern. The crew was able to deliver the design and went above and beyond. We would highly recommend working with them.

    I recently hired DeckMaster on an ambitious project to overhaul a large and intricate deck for my home, adding a screened-in porch and upper walkout. My experience was significantly enhanced by Pavel, who diligently supervised every stage from the removal of the old structure to the meticulous finishing touches on our new deck. Not only is Pavel exceptionally approachable and communicative, but he also brought forward valuable suggestions related to both functionality and aesthetics. Throughout the project, he displayed an unwavering commitment to ensuring our utmost satisfaction. While DeckMaster as a whole offers commendable service - we're thoroughly impressed with the management and craftsmanship - I'd particularly encourage you to collaborate with Pavel on your deck project. Here's a picture of the screened-in porch which has quickly become my new favorite room of the house.

    DeckMaster is outstanding all around, from obtaining a quote, to service, to the project and final punch list. They are very responsive and on top of everything. I obtained them for two projects. A new front porch, with a gable roof, new paver decking, paver stairs, and railing system. Then a small side paver patio and new trex landing/decking/stairs and railing system coming from my kitchen access door. This company hires and trains great people, who all care and go above and beyond to get the job done, and done right. I'm looking forward to spending time on my new front porch, it's beautiful and tranquil. I'm extremely happy w/ DeckMaster, highly recommend them, and plan on using them to install a new 16 x 20 backyard patio next year! Kudo's to Jose, Pavel (project manager), Carlos, Emmanuel, and the entire team!

    Deck Master achieved our vision of a minimalist and yet modern and low maintenance look to showcase new fresher style with less obstruction. Pavel, the project manager was professional and very responsive. The quotes he gave us was reasonable, affordable, and the workmanship was remarkable - even better than their most expensive competitor. Yelka has superb customer service and she really took care of our needs and questions. The work of the crew was meticulous. Not to mention Carlos who installed the Trex Signature Horizontal Rod Railing had such attention to details and took into consideration our feedback and made things look well done.

    Had the best experience working with DeckMaster, Inc. My house has a historical designation which requires extra permitting and permission. Jose took care of all of that and he and his team fully replaced the existing deck with a much sturdier, better designed one. The whole process was smooth and efficient once the permitting was over, and I look forward to the final painting and finishing in the spring.

    Deck Master (1) removed our old rotting ground level wooden deck and replaced it with a beautiful paver patio with sitting walls (2) replaced our deteriorating porch wooden steps with composite vinyl/trex lighted steps (3) replaced our porch screens, cleaned and stained porch all fascia boards including vinyl cladding on vertical fascia. All work was done in a very professional way with separate crews that specialized in the work that needed to be done including the demolition. Each crew would show up and work until work was completed and then clean up and remove all construction debris. Crews and construction managers and office managers were friendly and responsive to our concerns. All materials and installation were top quality resulting in an impressive finished product. I highly recommend Deck Master.
