Deck Construction/Installation


We build all types of decks, from composite (maintenance free) decks to redwood and cedar decks. If you can dream it, we will build it. Please check out our gallery to see some of our previous work.

Our decks are built to surpass the typical 10-15 years of staying power. We are committed to delivering a strong, quality product, every time. 

 

We take 5 key steps to do this and they are:


 

Seal the top of all joists and beams with Vycor plus 4 & 6 flashing. We install this to protect the joist and beams from water damage and to prevent the premature rot of the under framing of the deck.

 

Copper Naphthalene wood preservative. We use this product on all treated lumber that we cut or any wood that will be making contact with the ground or fence posts. This product seals the ends of the treated lumber to make sure no water can penetrate the wood.

 

Proper ledger attachment to house. We go above and beyond the codes of Colorado to make sure the ledger is properly attached to the house. If a ledger isn't installed properly, it can cause the outer wood sheath on your house to rot and water could enter your house.

 

Lateral load deck attachments. These simple attachments keep the deck properly attached to the house and prevents collapse from the lateral load your deck puts on the ledger board. The fear of deck collapse is always an issue, but by using Simpson DTT1Z, the new standard in deck attachment, we can reduce the chance of this happening.

 

Galvanized fasteners. When putting fasteners (screws and nails) to hold the deck together,  galvanized fasteners must be used. The chemicals that are used in treated lumber will corrode non-galvanized fasteners and will compromise the deck structure.
