Deck Design and Installation

Our deck and porch design

provide the transition between living inside and living outside using features like pergolas,  wide

stairways, open pathways and integrated planters.

Deck Features

  • No Care materials or Real Wood ( southern yellow pine or tropical choices)
  • Porches and Pergolas
  • Custom Handrails
  • Planters

How does material choice affect cost?

Pressure Treated Lumber - most cost effective product at intial installation. The maintenance requires the deck to be stained annually.

South American Lumber Species (Ipé) - about 3 times the price of pressure treated lumber and equal staining requirements. This product has a much tighter grain and does not splinter as easy even after years of sun exposure.

No Care Decks - about double the price of pressure treated lumber. These products do not require staining or other maintenance.

Combinations of these different materials are often used for decks and handrails.

Sustainable Products and Practices

All of the lumber that we use to build our decks and porches is sourced to conform to the highest level practices of sustainability with careful attention to rain forest deforestation, grass roots economy and use of recycled material.
