DeckTools® Deck Design Software 3.3 Expands Its Library With Innovative Products From Feeney, Inc.

Pleasanton, Calif. – Simpson Strong-Tie announced that Feeney, Inc. has joined their DeckTools® Deck Sales and Design Software partners library. Feeney is a leading manufacturer of high-quality, innovative architectural and garden products, and the lastest DeckTools® version 3.3 will feature several of Feeney’s most popular items: CableRail railing infill cables, Lightline® door canopies, and two styles of wall mounted cable and rod trellises. 

DeckTools Software is a sales, design, and estimating program that enables deck builders and suppliers to design decks in a photo-realistic, 3D environment. Users can customize nearly every detail, from the deck shape and railings to fencing and material choices. In addition to its design flexibility, the program can quickly generate plans, proposals, and material lists. 

“Our success over the past 63 years stems from our experience, service, quality products, and strong customer relationships, and we’re very excited to be part of DeckTools program and the Simpson Strong-Tie company that shares the same business vision,” said Feeney’s VP of marketing, Andrew Penny. “Not only does DeckTools offer additional valuable exposure for our products, but it also provides an extremely realistic and user-friendly environment in which contractors and homeowners can easily interact with our products and clearly visualize their finished project. And this close involvement and interaction is a great way to help build strong, enduring relationships with customers.” 

DeckTools Software 3.3 includes new features, such as an enhanced user guide with drawings, a handy tape measure tool, and new straight run layout options in Railing Designer. It’s also now easier to upgrade to stainless steel connectors and to replace nails with SD structural-connector screws. The software retails for $1895.00.
