Deck and Porch

The best decks are built on solid foundation, sound framing and safe railings.

"We work with you in mind to design your deck with as many high end features and installation materials as possible, within your budget."

New materials are available to our clients, such as composite planks for decks made of wood and plastic that is extruded with a reversible finish: combed finish on one side and an embossed woodgrain finish on the other. Basically, tougher plastics, to withstand more use and abuse traffic, built-in resistance to staining, fading and mold & mildew.

Other growing popular choices for railings and columns include PVC finishes which Lower maintenance, and are rot-proof and water-proof.

Old decks were poorly attached to the house, as a matter of fact, many accidents happened as a result of a deck collapse. The ledged board, (this is the board that anchors the deck to the house) should be bolted to the house's main frame to ensure people's safety.
