Basic, Picture Frame, Custom Patterns and Materials
We usually start by asking you to share some pics of your ideal deck designs with us and take it from there. Depending on budget and codes we will ensure your choices will result in a durable and long lasting design for your new deck. We can design and build to suit your needs and style with choices ranging from basic clean designs to the classics and of course the more involved designs and materials. Most of our projects are made using pressure treated wood or pressure treated frames with composite decking.
Complete Deck Design and Planning
Planning a deck is a simple process that involves checking the area around the house for any electrical, water or other connections or piping that may need to be taken into account before the design can be laid out in full. We are happy to provide drawings when required of our projects. Some basic items included in all of our designs are railings, stairs, skirting, fabric and rock for under or around your new deck.
