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!

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.
