Deck Design & Installation
Deck installation increases space for outdoor entertaining. Walk out the door and onto a pleasant surface, free of mud and standing water
Custom-built Deck Designs
Our deck construction is designed based on specific need, space, maintenance requirement, and individual's budget. All of our deck designs are custom-built on site using Natural Select™, environmentally-friendly
treated wood in the structural (framing) portion of our decks. Decks can make use
of difficult or uneven terrain and range from simple ground level boardwalks to
multi-level entertainment spaces with inset lighting, plantings and even water features.
By-level Deck Design
The multi levels deck designs allows large space to be defined
into smaller spaces to meet the multiple needs of a family. Sometimes creating an elevated or lower section within a deck allow us to create a more private area.
Built-in seating and flower boxes are a very popular feature. By incorporating built
in benches around the perimeter of the deck, the seating space is maximized and yet allows room for table and chairs.
Designed to Include a Railing
While a railing is often required by code, we have a lot of freedom to create a look that blends with your home and deck design. Whether using a type of wood, composite, or metal, railings can be both useful and aesthetically pleasing. Most important, they should never obstruct a view.
Wood Deck Materials
The use of cedar for decking is the most economical choice for homeowners. Its natural
resistance to weather and insects allows the cedar to grey naturally without having
to stain or seal the wood. However, you can still stain and seal the wood for longevity
and to capture the beauty of the wood grain.
Sustainable hard or soft woods like Ipe (Iron Wood), Mahogany, and Western Red Cedar
are also used for decking. However, Trex® and other plastic composite decking,
or "StoneDeck" (see www.stonedeckwest.com), are also popular building materials because they require
so little maintenance and last longer than wood.
Decking immediately extends your living space to the outdoors, integrating your
home into the garden. Whether it is a nice soak in the hot tub or a great dinner
grilled out on the barbeque, decks provide much more usable space for living enjoyment.
