Houston Decks, Fences & Hardscapes

Money Back Guarantee & 5 Year Warranty



Hi, we are Lon and Melissa Emerson, the owners of Emerson Home Exterior Enhancements; we want to welcome you to our site. If you are a homeowner searching for a decking and fence company in Houston or the surrounding area, then you have come to the right place!

We understand that you have many options when choosing a fence or deck builder in Houston, and most contractors will use the word “quality” to describe the work they provide, making it all the more difficult for you to know whom you should hire.


If you are like many of the people we have spoken with, choosing a decking and fencing contractor in Houston is a hassle and seems risky because, in our area, such contractors aren’t required to be licensed or insured, which leaves you asking yourself:

  • Who will show up and do a good job?

  • Who will complete the job on time?

  • Who will stay on budget?

  • Who will not rip you off?


Everyone has heard of horror stories about fence and deck builders in Houston that do a terrible job, delay the project for weeks or months on end, ask for more money than the customer agreed to pay, or worse, know of a contractor that disappeared before the project was complete. Naturally, no homeowner wants to feel they have made a wrong hiring choice or feel they have been taken advantage of.   

And that brings us to the point of our letter. As the owners of Emerson Home Exterior Enhancements, when you hire us to build your decking and fence in Houston, you have our personal guarantee that it will be constructed precisely as we agreed upon. If our unhappy, we will make sure the issue is immediately corrected at our expense, or we will refund 100% of the labor cost without reserve. Furthermore, we will stand behind the quality of your new decking and fence with a Houston-size warranty – five years of free fence or deck repairs due to any issue with the quality of our work, and since we’ve been in business since 1999, you can trust we will still be here if you need us.

Quality is more than an idiom- it’s the backbone of how we have stayed in business for over twenty years. If you are looking for a decking and fence company in Houston. Katy, Cypress, or Sugar Land, take the next step today by contacting us to schedule a convenient time to meet with you for a free, no-hassle quote at (281) 545-7740 or complete our online form so we can contact you within 24 hours.

Let Our Customers Tell You About Us...

Great Job to Lon and his crew. They are very friendly and do an excellent job.

We used them a few years ago for our fence, so we didn’t hesitate to call when we wanted our deck built. Both times they made sure that we were thrilled with the work they provides, and I can only recommend Emerson Home Exterior Enhancements. I love the decking and fence they designed and built!

Our Promise

Quality. Service. Integrity. 

These three keywords have different meanings to different fence and deck builders in Houston- here’s what they mean to our family and why they matter to you:  


Quality to Melissa and me means building every project, whether decking and fencing, a new pergola, or an outdoor kitchen, with excellent materials, superb workmanship, and timely completion. Quality is the cornerstone of our commitment to our is the backbone of how we run our business.

Our devotion to quality starts with our crew members. While there are no licenses to be a contractor, each one of our crew members is rigorously trained by me to ensure they uphold our family name.  I am very intentional about passing my knowledge and expertise down to my crew and staying accessible to my customers if I am not on the job site.

The way we treat our customers exemplifies our commitment to quality.


We know that our customers could have selected any decking and fencing contractor in Houston, and we honor their choice of selecting Emerson Home Exterior Enhancements by remembering that it is our privilege to have the opportunity to meet their needs. My personal commitment to our customers is that we will listen to your requests, answer your questions, and treat you as a part of our family business.


In our industry, it’s not uncommon to take shortcuts when obtaining permits for a project or offering cheap materials to keep costs down for major add-ons, such as deck building or an outdoor kitchen. However, I’ve literally built and repaired thousands of decking and fences in Houston and seen firsthand the impact cutting corners has made on a property value and a homeowner’s pocketbook. The risk isn’t worth the reward, as the consequences of cutting corners can far outweigh the upfront savings. At Emerson Home Exterior Enhancements, we take pride in doing the job right, minimizing the chances of any future problems.

This is why we are careful with the material and methods we use for each fence and deck we build. When it comes to wood, the preferred choice in Houston we hand select each picket and board, use only grade-A lumber and if you opt for another material such as composite, vinyl, or aluminum decking and fences, then you can trust that it comes from the leading manufacturers in our industry such as Trex, ARTX Fences, Imagine Decks, and Jerith manufacturing.  When you compare our materials and the construction of our decking and fences to those of other Houston contractors, the quality of an Emerson deck, fence, or hardscape will shine through.



We simply follow through with what we say – this means completing your project when we say we will (weather permitting), sticking to the price we quoted you, and spending as much time as necessary to make sure you are happy with the finished project. No project is completed until you have signed off that you are completely satisfied with the results and if you are not then we will make it right without any excuse.

From the day our business began until now, our primary focus has been providing the "highest-quality decking and fences " for our Houston customers. When you read our reviews, you’ll see for yourself that we have stood by our commitment to quality, service, and integrity.

Our Hassle Free Process To Build

Your Decking and Fence in Houston

Step #1 - Contact Us: Give us a call, complete our online submission form, or start a chat with us; contacting us is easy. Once you have reached out, we will schedule a convenient time to meet with you to provide a free estimate and answer all of your questions.


Step # 2- Free Consultation: If you are having a fence built or repaired, we will take measurements, discuss your HOA requirements, and if need be, help you choose the best material based on your needs and budget. For deck building and hardscaping services, we place your project into a 3-D rendering so you can see what it will look like once your project is complete to ensure it checks off all the boxes you want prior to construction.


Step #3 – Schedule Your Project: Once you have accepted our proposal, we will get to work gathering any necessary permits- ground-level decking and fences in Houston do not require permits. If any other contractors are needed on your project, we will arrange the schedules so there are no delays. We will provide you with a schedule so that you can keep track of the status of your project from start to completion.


Step #4- Construction Begins: The day before our crew is scheduled to arrive, we will give you a courtesy call. Throughout the construction of your decking and fence or hardscape project, we will keep the worksite clean and secure so that you continue your day-to-day life with as little interruption as possible. If you have any questions during the construction phase of your project, we remain accessible to you by phone or email.


Step # 5- Final Walkthrough: After your new deck, fence, or hardscape is built we will do a final walkthrough with you to ensure you are happy with the results. If there are any issues we will correct them immediately if you are still unsatisfied we will refund your labor cost, in our 20 + year history we have yet to have this happen.  


Step # 6- Issue Warranty: Within 24 hours of us building your new decking and fence in Houston we will send you an email that includes your five year warranty and a receipt for your records.
