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!

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.

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.

Have you ever thought about adding a different style of steps to your deck? Look at this unique deck we did in Farmington!

What’s better than choosing your own unique style?

There are so many ways to customize your own deck or porch. From the color of the boards, railings, stairs, posts and more. You get to choose how you want it to look. If you want a unique design that has a custom area for your grill or multiple levels, we can help! Just look at the spiral stairs that we installed with this AZEK maintenance free deck. What a fun idea! 

Decking Components

There are a variety of options to choose from when considering adding some outdoor living space to your home. We have gathered many important aspects of the deck construction process, to help you get a feel for all the choices you will have concerning your custom built deck in Minneapolis. Contact our deck construction professionals for more help with deck designs, layouts and materials.

  • Deck Footings – Holes will be dug in order to pour concrete footings for the deck. This portion of the deck construction process is usually completed to the specific needs of your cities building codes. These concrete deck footings will be a solid support system for the deck posts.
  • 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.
  • Joists – The joists will then be installed to build and support the deck frame. The size of the deck will determine the size, number and span of the deck joists.
  • Deck Boards – Whether you choose low maintenance composite or natural wood, our deck builders provide only quality decking materials. Because deck boards are the floor of your newly constructed deck, be sure to choose decking with the look and maintenance needs you can live with happily.
  • Deck Accessories – Custom decks give you the ability to choose all your own hardware, railing designs, elect for a gate and design your own staircase. Don’t be afraid to ask us about common deck accessories we install. Our Masonry Contractors are even skilled enough to add a custom kitchen, fireplace or any other type of brickwork addition.

For a custom deck with all the comforts you desire, contact Dupont Construction & Remodeling at 763-753-9796.
