Knot Just Decks began in 1987 in Ken and Ann Woodfill's home on the south side of Fort Wayne. Ken and Ann had recently sold another business, called Ajax Yardworks, that manufactured mailbox posts, wooden deck squares and flagpoles. Ken decided to start a deck-building business that continued to sell and install flagpoles. Ken was a Marine, making the U.S. flag near and dear to his heart.


Ken and Ann were no strangers to hard work and were experts at running a business out of their home while raising five children. As the business grew and their children got older, the children started working with their parents. There was always a strong work ethic in the Woodfill household, as well as a strong Christian upbringing. Ken and Ann believed that God and family come first, period. They transferred that way of life into their business and ran their business by "The Book" (the Bible).

As time went on and the business grew, Ken and Ann relocated to our current location at 3753 Lima Road. A few of their children continued to work at the business well after high school. Unfortunately, Ken's health started to decline in 2007. Ken and Ann decided to consider selling the business. In 2008, their second youngest child, Mike, decided to purchase the business to continue the legacy that his parents started. Sadly, in 2009, Ken passed away from a rare blood disease. Mike continues to run the business with his wife, Becca, the way that his parents started it, which is by "The Book" and the Golden Rule: "Treat others as you would have them treat you."

Knot Just Decks continues to thrive from loyal customers and referrals based on the way they treat their employees and customers. The good, old-fashioned work ethic and Christian-based principles will continue to drive Ken and Ann's legacy for a very long time. We have become Fort Wayne's leader in exterior contracting, providing services for decks, pergolas, outdoor kitchens, seamless aluminum gutters, gutter guards, flagpoles and concrete coatings. We are constantly looking to improve and are always trying to find ways to serve our employees and customers better. From our family to yours, we humbly appreciate the opportunity that has been given to us.
