Deck installation 

 Hand picking the lumber is the beginning of every deck we build.  We spend great attention  to locating only the best boards for your deck.  Knowing what to look for is the key as certain boards may become problematic as they age.  Next it's off to our complete woodworking shop where taking dimensions off the C.A.D. plans, we pre-build all rail sections, stairs, landings, etc. (many times we may precut all the framing for the deck).  This shop atmosphere insures quality and reduces the time spent onsite.

We hand dig all your footings to a 42" depth and install 10" building tubes.  Many companies try to speed up this process by bringing in big equipment for the digging, often this results in major damage to your yard. Once the concrete is poured and has time to cure, the actual construction begins.  The average time to completion at this point is inside of a week (weather permitting of course). We start by framing the deck and this goes rather quickly. Most important is where the deck is attached to the house (the ledger board).  It must be bolted and flashed correctly. Next the flooring is laid down, and quality screws are used (no nail guns here) this too goes rather quickly, depending on the size and floor pattern. Now you get a real feel for the size and functionality of the deck. The next step is installing  the fascia boards and all the pre-made components mentioned earlier (rails, stairs, etc.). This is where the shop quality really shows and the attention to details make our decks shine.

    The final step and often overlooked is the finishing of the deck.  Here we surface sand the deck to remove dirt, marking or stamps, mill glaze and many small defects in the wood which might  become problematic in the future.  Then it's time to apply a double coat (wet on wet) of oil based deck sealer/stain (in my opinion the most important part of the entire job!).

Of course at every step of the process we maintain a clean and safe worksite, and only bring in the materials necessary for that stage of the job currently in progress.
