Decks have become part of the home for many. It's a place for summer fun, cook outs and gathering, catching the warm sun or enjoying a pleasant evening. As a west Michigan deck builder, we find the most popular product for decking is still pressure treated pine. It is affordable, strong, easy to work with and has a relatively good life span if taken care of. The drawbacks are some maintenance issues that are required to keep your deck looking good.
We also work with composite products like Fiberon, www.fiberondecking.com
that are growing in popularity because of their good looks and low maintenance. The downside is their cost is higher than real wood. You can also check www.decks.com
for more information and product choices. We are quality minded and safety minded with all are deck projects regardless of the materials we use. We always obtain the proper local permits and follow the latest codes for construction and most important safety.
We have added another great deck product offering. We are now certified installers and deck builders of Duradek and Durarail. Duradek is a 60 mil waterproof membrane that allows for a dry livable space under your deck. No need for an ugly gutter system underneath between the joist. You can finish under the deck for living space or storage. Durarail is a powder coated rail system that is beautiful and long lasting. Use glass panels to maintain a view or traditional balusters. Duradek and Durarail can be used for either new or remodel construction. visit www.duradek.com.
