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.

Gorgeous Deck Face Lift in White Bear Lake, MN! Are you ready to update your deck?

What a difference a face lift can make!

This deck in White Bear Lake was older and showed it’s age. The family wanted to update their current deck to a composite deck so they could enjoy the beauty of a new deck and not have the maintenance that comes along with Cedar and Treated Pine Decking.

 

AZEK is what they chose to go with and I think it’s beautiful!

The existing deck is a 14′ x 16′ and we added 4′ wide stairs which is typical on our decks. This deck is 5′ off the ground and they wanted angled stairs, I think they really compliment this deck nicely. We also added 3 new 6″ x 6″ support posts to make the frame sturdy again.

 

The homeowners chose to use AZEK in Slate Grey with white fascia and a custom maintenance free railing in white as well. This one turned out so well and our home owners are very happy with there new face lift deck!

Stunning new AZEK deck we just finished in Minnetrista, MN! They don’t always have to have stairs and that’s fine with us!

Newly built AZEK deck without stairs!

This new deck is 23’ x 14’ deck and has no stairs the AZEK decking is Acacia Color, Fypon all white structural maintenance free railing with white square balusters, white fascia boards around the perimeter of the deck, and white solar post caps on the deck railing complete this beautiful new deck.

AZEK decking comes with a lifetime warranty against product
defects including any blistering, peeling, flaking, cracking, splitting,
cupping, rotting or structural defects.

AZEK decking is installed using the cortex hidden fastening system so no
screws are visible on the decking surface.

 

Footings:

Installation of deck footings, placement, digging and installation of all
buried footings for the deck. We install our footings in the ground for
added strength with specially engineered lumber that is rated for ground
contact. We do not do buried concrete pier footings which can be very
problematic in Minnesota with our soil and temperature variation conditions.
Buried concrete pier footings tend to heave and sink over time. Our footing
process was designed to minimize the possibility of footings sinking and
heaving with the harsh Minnesota climate changes and soil conditions. Our
footings meet and exceed code compliance in the state of Minnesota.
