Decks

Custom wood or composite decks add valuable outdoor living space to your home. Our decks are constructed of either treated wood or composite material. All deck framing is wood and, at least, with 2×10′s and 6×6 posts. Each material has advantages and disadvantages. Here are some things to consider:

Wood

  • Will eventually rot if proper care is not received
  • Has knots splinters and can warp
  • Is stronger and resists scratches better than composite material
  • Has a natural appearance
  • Is about 1/2 the cost of composite material
  • Needs to be water sealed every few years

Composite Material

  • Does not rot
  • Does not warp and has a uniform texture
  • Scratches easily
  • Is around twice the cost of wood
  • Has tendency to grow mold or algae
  • Is virtually maintenance free
  • Is available in many colors and styles

An easy way to consider your deck dimensions is to consider different lumber sizes and measure the area of the desired deck. Lumber is sold in 8′-10′-12′-14′-16′ increments. Longer sizes are available, but can get expensive   Try to match your idea with this in mind so that the least amount of wood is wasted to minimize costs.
