  • Posts – Once the post holes are dug and the concrete has set our deck builders we will then place the posts on the concrete footings. Our building contractors always ensure each decking post is level and the correct height for the deck beams.
  • Beams – Next is the installation of the decking beams, the main structural support of the deck. Installing these horizontal beams correctly and at the proper location can dramatically affect the longevity and structural support of your entire deck.
