will provide all drawings, prints, etc. to the township necessary to

Footings The holes are dug to meet or exceed your townships
requirements, which is normally a 36 inch hole. We pour approximately 16
inches of concrete into the hole, set the post, which is a pressure
treated 6 x 6, and then pour
approximately 12 inches of concrete around the post. The rest of the
hole is then filled with dirt. Upon customers request, we can also pour
the footers with concrete to ground level, using a sono tube. A plate is
then attached to the 6 x 6 and anchored into the concrete. An additional
charge is normally applied to do this.
Beam The 6 x
6’s are then notched out to accommodate a double 2 x 10 beam. The beam
sets in the notched out part of the post. It is then bolted to the 6 x 6
posts using 2 1/2 inch thru bolts per 6 x 6 post. (The reason for the
notch out is so the weight of the deck rests completely on the 6 x 6
post and not just on the bolts.
ledger board, which is the board attached to the house, is attached
using 1/2 x 5 inch lags spaced 14 inches apart. Prior to attaching the
ledger board, we will cut out the siding, flash it using vinyl flashing.
If the ledger board needs to be attached to concrete, we use concrete
wedge anchors 14 inches apart. Our framing joists are standard 2 x 10
pressure treated boards spaced at 14 inches on center for straight
flooring and 12 inches on center for diagonal flooring. All joists are
attached to ledger board using joist hangers. The joist hangers are zinc
coated and hot dipped galvanized to eliminate rusting.
can choose to either run flooring straight, diagonal, or multiple
directions. Whatever you choose, there
will be no splices in the floor and it will be professionally cut to fit
against the house and around objects such as spouting, etc. All edges
are routered to give the flooring a finished and elegant look. Our
flooring is normally screwed using 2 and 1/2 inch screws. The screw
color will match the flooring color to blend in and make the screw less
noticeable. We use a dura spin screw, which has a reverse thread near
the top of the screw. This kind of screw eliminates any kind of
“mushroom” which is when there is small “bumps” where the screw head
went into the flooring. We also use hidden fasteners, which completely
eliminates any kind of surface screwing and there will be no screws
showing on the deck surface. There is normally an additional charge for
we notch out the floor to accommodate a 4 x 4 post. This is installed on
the inside of the outer 2 x 10 and gets nailed and lagged with 2 3/8
inch lags. We use a construction grade of doug fir for the 4 x 4’s, as
opposed to pressure treated. The reason for this is the fir does not
twist as it ages and thus insures that your railing will stay perfectly
straight. For most railing styles, the railing you choose will have a
post sleeve designed to
fit perfectly over the 4 x 4’s and also a post trim, which slides over
the post sleeve and down against the floor to give it a great finished
look. The railing of your choice is then installed.
steps are cut out of pressure treated 2 x 12’s, and custom made on the
jobsite to accommodate your deck to ground level. They will be concreted
in, using the same method as the deck footings. The risers, (the back of
the step) will be covered with the same product as the flooring on your
deck and the ends will be routered to blend in perfectly with your deck.
exposed pressure treated, which is the outer 2 x 10 around the deck and
the sides of the steps, is covered with fascia to match you deck color.
You can choose to either have the fascia put on vertically or
horizontal. This finishes off your deck so that everything blends in
beautifully. This is standard and not an additional
Lattice (Optional) Lattice
is optional and normally not included in the base price of the deck.
Should you choose lattice we use a vinyl lattice, normally the color of
your railing unless you request different. It is framed using pressure
treated 2 x 4’s and we can build a hinged door for access. This provides
a nice area to store items underneath your deck.
Stone (Optional) If
you prefer to have stone put underneath your deck, we will do so. First
we put down a weed barrier to prevent grass from growing underneath your
deck, then cover it with 2 - 3 inches of stone. We put down the stone of
your preference. The most commonly used are the red 3/4 inch decorator
stone or the 1 inch white round stone. This is normally an additional
