Deck Installation & Repair by a General Contractor
Have you ever sat on someone else’s deck and envied the scenery and fresh air? You’re not alone. Even if you currently have a deck on your home, it might not be big enough or worn down with age. If you’ve looked through Pinterest, lately, you’ve probably seen some of the most beautiful decks a person can dream of having. However, building these dream decks can be much hard work, red tape obstacles, and more money than you’d expect if you are looking to take on this beast by yourself.
Choosing A Deck Type
Decks are not only stylish and a way to enjoy your home more, but they also can add home value if done correctly. There are many kinds of decks to choose from as well. We put together a list of the top 5 most common home decks.
- A multi-tier deck. A multi-tier deck can make any backyard transform into a beautiful getaway. Every time you step out of your home, you can feel like you’re visiting a botanical garden.
- Wrap-around deck. Want to create a southern charm look to your home? A wrap-around deck makes a beautiful addition.
- Attached deck. An attached deck can act as a patio, but instead of being made of concrete, it is made of wood or a deck material. The attached deck is raised, creating a floating look.
- Swimming pool deck. A swimming pool deck can create the ultimate vacation atmosphere for your pool area.
- Rooftop deck. A rooftop deck is a more challenging project that is not for the DIYer. This style of deck will need a contractor.

The next step in the process of our deck building services starts the fun, preparing the foundation. We clear the land of any debris or obstacles to ensure a smooth install. Your contractor and their team will layout stakes and string to precisely know where they are building and what angles and levels they are working with.
Next, we start at the ledger when building a deck. The ledger connects to your home. The ledger is then secured to your home safely. From that, we install posts and footings for the deck installation. Installation of support beams is essential to creating a safe environment for anyone using the deck.
The essentials to your new deck are almost complete! This step is where we add joists to complete those framework essentials.
Laying the decking is the next step once all of the beams, footers, posts, ledgers, joists, and all framework has been secured. Laying the deck floor is the step where you see your deck coming to life! We will make sure all stairways and railing are correctly installed and up to code.
The very last part of our process is cosmetic. We stain or paint your deck with the proper paint and tools to create a deck masterpiece. Your deck is finished and ready to be enjoyed to its fullest!
