Decks have come a long way. Strict code and design requirements ensure current construction methods result in safe, strong and robust decks will provide relaxing space for you and your guests for years, or even decades.
Our recent projects show both a traditional deck built just above grade as well as one that is two stories high and covered. Covered decks provide extra space that is sheltered and in this cases screened in to eliminate insects.
Having a deck that is both covered and open allows you to enjoy the outdoors no matter what the weather is.
We recommend that all wood be pressure treated and be built above the ground. Having the posts set on anchors which are cast in concrete piers, eliminates rot due to moisture and reduces insects. Using composite decking with hidden fasteners results in a cleaner look. Combining composite decking with vinyl railings and trim, results in a low maintenance deck that will hold up against the weather for a very long time.
