Composite Decking

Composite decking has picked up a lot of popularity in the past 10 years. This style of decking is both pleasing to the eye and especially easy to maintain.

Decking

Composite decking such as Trex and TimberTech provide all the natural beauty of wood without any of the work. This style of decking comes in a wide variety of colors options, giving you the freedom to choose the option that best compliments the color and style of your home.

 

How it works:

Composite decking is made using recycled materials such as wood and plastic. These materials are mixed with pigments and preservatives and shaped into boards. This process creates a decking board that is not only beautiful, but also extremely durable, very long lasting, and super easy to maintain. 

Helical Piers

A solid foundation is essential for any deck. Thats why we start all of our decks with helical piers. Helical piers help give the deck a foundation that will never heave from frost, or sink in soft ground.

 

How it works:

The bottom helix part of the pier gets driven below the frost line until the bearing capacity required for the deck is achieved. Above that, the green sleeve protects the pier from the elements, sliding up and down the pier with natural ground movement. This technology allows the pier to stay perfectly stable during freezing and thawing periods.
