Under Decking system installed in Prior Lake, MN

Under-Decking for more outdoor space not just for looks, maximize your deck’s potential!

Convert the space under your deck into a dry patio area to add even more extra outdoor space to your yard! Not only does it finish off the look of the under side of your deck, it serves a purpose also keeps you dry.

 

 

 

 

Even if you already have an existing deck you can still add Under-Decking. Why is it such a nice addition to your deck? Read below:

There are many different types of Under-Decking Systems, you can read about 2 of them below:

Trex RainEscape is a unique under-deck drainage system that uses a network of troughs and downspout construction to keep rain, spills and snowmelt from dripping through elevated deck boards. Creating a dry space beneath the deck allows homeowners to create an outdoor living area by installing lights, ceiling fans, entertainment systems, outdoor kitchens and more.

Ideal for second-story decks, the TimberTech DrySpace product is an under-deck drainage system that collects and channels moisture from the spaces between planks. It is easily attached to new or existing deck joists.  DrySpace is made of solid extruded vinyl for maximum strength, durability, and weather resistance, and comes with a 25-year limited warranty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a nice finish to this deck we built a couple years ago. They wanted an Under-Decking system installed this year and it really finished off this space!

Face lift in Andover, MN! They chose to go with maintenance free and it looks great!

Face lift-What is a face lift?

 

Well let me explain it here. A face lift is what we call it, when we’re able to reuse the current framing, and footings on a deck. This deck actually needed on of the 6″ x 6″ posts replaced so we did that as well. What we do is we remove the old decking, railings, and stairs (if you have them) and replace the decking, railings, and stairs. These homeowners decided to give their deck a face lift. It saves money as well, we don’t have tear down a completed deck and we reuse the existing framing, and footings as long as they are ingood shape. It’s amazing what a face lift can do for an old deck. It looks brand new! 

What is this deck made out of?

This deck is a AZEK maintenance free deck with Trex select white railing system with black circular aluminum balusters. White fascia boards around the perimeter of the deck and 2 white solar post caps on the railing.

We love when our clients are happy and we exceed their expectations! A review from Molly in Lakeville! Thank you so much Molly!

I am writing this review to give a strong recommendation for anyone looking to add the features of a deck to your house, to consider using Dupont Construction. From the moment I contacted them to inquire about deck options and pricing, to the first time I could sit out on it and have dinner with my family, they were as thorough, professional, timely, friendly and responsive as I could have hoped for. This was the first time I had been through a process like this. Their patience and expertise in helping me through the entire process allowed me to end up with the deck of my dreams. The gentlemen that built the deck were awesome. If you’re looking for a smooth process from a family orientated company, give Dupont Construction a call. 

 

This is a new AZEK 16’ x 16’ deck with a 4’ x 6’ bump out and 4’ wide stairs leading
down to the ground in Slate Gray deck with Trex select white railing system with black circular aluminum balusters, white fascia boards around the perimeter of the deck, white stair risers. We wrapped the 6” x 6” posts under the deck with white maintenance free boards.

 

AZEK comes with a lifetime warranty against product defects, including; blistering, peeling, flaking, cracking, splitting, cupping, rotting or structural defects. We install using the Cortex hidden fasting system so no screws are visible on the decking surface.

What can a new deck do for you? Take a look at this before and after in Chanhassen, MN.

Amazing Before and After Deck – Or work is our word!

Like anything else in your home your deck too needs maintenance. Instead of doing the bare minimum repairs this year to your deck and not happy with the end result, give us a call and lets talk a deck facelift or new build. A deck facelift allows you to enjoy your deck again by making changes you wish you had done the first time around. The most common change those who do a deck facelift make is changing out the material from natural wood to AZEK maintenance free material. This cuts down on your work each year in maintaining your deck. Others like to stick with the natural material for cost and look. This deck is what we call a combination deck. It uses maitenance free AZEK materials and cedar. It’s a beautiful combination and the smell is amazing! 

The owners chose to do the decking material with AZEK composite materials and the railings with cedar. We added black aluminum curved baluster and a AZEK cocktail railing. The cocktail railing is the second most common factor people choose to do when building their deck. The cocktail railing allows you to put your drink down anywhere along the edges of your deck, making it a great accessory for entertaining family and friends. This gives the deck a large area for entertaining and the deck now extends to the width of the home.

The photo’s above show a cedar deck that we built and maintenance free deck that was also built by Dupont. They both look incredible!

The Beginning
The first thing to know when choosing your deck materials is that all decks use treated lumber for the framing. The framing is the structural part of your deck that you wouldn’t see unless you were under the deck. So when deciding which material to choose it usually involves only the materials that would make up the decking surface, railings, and if you have stairs.

Two Main Categories
You have two main categories when choosing your deck material: natural wood or man-made composite – of course there are lots of options within each of these categories. The most popular products if you choose natural wood are treated lumber and cedar and the most popular products if you choose man-made are composites, PVC and vinyl from manufactures like Timber Tech and Azek.

What’s Popular
The majority of decks built today are made of wood. The main reason why people are choosing wood materials is for the initial cost savings. Which can be really nice up front but they require a lot more work. The main reason people choose composite or man-made deck materials is for the low maintenance required.

The Final Question
So what deck material should you choose? There are numerous factors to evaluate before making your final decision. So to help you make your decision ask yourself: How will the deck be used? Is it in a shaded area or in direct sun light? How long do you plan to stay in your home? Do you have the money to hire someone to do the deck maintenance or will you be doing it yourself? Who will be building your deck? As you can see the questions are endless, but if you can answer these few questions then you should have a basic idea of what type of deck material you should use when building your deck.

 

If you are considering building a deck this spring or summer give us a call today and we can discuss your custom desires in your future deck. Don’t forget we also do custom deck facelifts; whether you need to do a complete tear down or just change it up a bit we are the company to call. A deck is a great addition to any home that give additional living space for you and your family and friends to enjoy. Plus there are many benefits including an increase in the value of your home. So give us a call today to talk about your deck. 763-753-9796
