FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will my project take to complete?
× Most decks that we build take between 1 to 3 days to complete, depending on the size and scope of the project.
Can I replace my decking and railing only and keep the existing structure?
×Depending on the age and structural integrity of a deck structure, it is possible to only replace the decking boards and railing or "resurface" your deck, as we call it. Each situation is different and many factors need to be taken into consideration in order to determine if a deck "resurface" is the best route.
Do you get permits or do I need to do that myself?
×We file all paperwork and obtain building permits for our customers.
Do you use hidden fasteners?
×Yes, each brand of composite & PVC decking has a hidden fastening system that is recommened for installation of their decking product. Western Red Cedar decking, however, is surface screwed.
Maintenance & Warranties
What is the maintenance on a cedar deck?
× Cedar decks require regular maintenance which includes annual cleaning as well as either staining or sealing the cedar surfaces. Vertical surfaces such as railing posts, balusters and support posts generally do no weather as quickly as horizontal surfaces, so they may require less frequent maintenance.
