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.

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.

Before and After Deck in Apple Valley, MN. Is it time for a new deck?

A few signs you’re in need of a new deck.

UNSTEADY RAILING

Unsteady, wobbly, or otherwise unstable railings are a safety hazard and a sure sign that a new deck is in order. Simply bracing wobbly railings or hammering in new nails is not a good solution.

Railings can lose their sturdiness from heavy leaning, (they are, after all, a solid boundary people like to stand near) or from extensive rotting or damage to the deck itself.

Test the strength of your railings by wobbling them a bit or safely leaning against them. Healthy decks will have railings that feel as strong as steel. Any wobbliness means it’s time to contact a decking company right away.

To make sure no one leans against an unsteady railing. Put up caution tape or orange cones. This is especially important if the deck is not at ground level.

Before and After, what a difference a new deck can make! 

SAGGING AND/OR ROTTING

If you walk across your deck and you can visibly see the boards bowing or rotting or if you walk across your deck and the boards sag, it’s definitely time to consider a new deck. Pay attention to where the sagging is occurring, sagging could be the result of water damage to joists or to the floorboards themselves, please use caution. Also, inspect the ends of the boards that piece together your deck floor. If they show signs of rotting or softening, especially if the material is wood, it’s time for a new deck.

YOUR DECK MIGHT SIMPLY JUST BE TOO OLD

If you’ve purchased your house from previous owners, you may not be sure of your deck’s age. A new deck is definitely in order if your deck is too old or past building code regulations. Research building regulations in your area so that you can make sure your deck doesn’t violate codes. Check your deck’s age against these regulations. If your deck is too old

UNSECURED POSTS

The posts that support your deck are essential to its strength and long life. Posts hold up joists which hold up the decking itself.

It’s important for your posts to be connected securely to joists and flooring. Inspect the stability of your posts by giving them a good shake. Any wobbling means an immediate safety hazard–call a decking company right away.

Also, pay attention to how your posts are secured to the joists. These should be secured with heavy-duty bolts or other metal work. If they’re held together by standard nails, this isn’t secure enough of a connection. It’s time for a new deck!

 

UNSTABLE JOISTS

If your joists are made of wood, it’s especially important to inspect them for damage, rotting, or sagging. Don’t just take a glimpse of them while you’re walking around your house–actually touch them and get under the deck if possible.

Joists are what keep your deck together and hold it up. It’s important to inspect your joists regularly because they can be a direct cause for collapsed decks or porches.

Warning signs that it’s time to get a new deck include rotting wood and material that’s soft to the touch. Joists can become unstable as a result of water damage or even termite infestations.

Contact a decking company right away if your joists so signs of extensive damage, and make sure to not use your deck until it is replaced.

 

Another view of the before and after!

SIGNS YOU ARE IN NEED OF A NEW DECK-SAFETY FIRST

Deck safety means your safety, and it’s important to recognize the signs that it’s time to replace your deck. Homeowners should check in on their deck stability on a regular basis to ensure that all household members stay safe.

Signs that you are in need of a new deck include damaged or rotting joists and deck floorboards, which could result from water damage or pest infestations. Pay close attention to the way posts are secured to the deck itself, and check in on the age of your deck to make sure it fits building regulations.

It’s also imperative to inspect ledger board quality and your railing’s stability.
