It's just about time to start thinking of your style of firepit for your outdoor space. Fall is in the air folks, and what would be better than to grab a cup of coffee, maybe a blanket, gather some friends or family all around a beautiful, warm firepit? Not a lot, and that's why you need to start scoping out a spot in your yard, existing deck or patio. Give us a call for more details, designs and prices.
Installed this Trex decking recently at our customer's condo, and it looks great! This is the Trex Transcend composite decking from their tropical color line. This color is called Lava Rock and I do love the reddish brown hues. I wanted to show a close up of the decking so you could see the detailed look of a natural wood grain, and the color. We also double picture framed this 14' x 14' deck to add some dimension to it, and a nice finished look. The Trex Transcend line boasts other beautiful colors as well, low maintenance, a 25 year stain and fade warranty, no splintering, insects, rot or warping. Never needs sanding, staining or painting, and withstands the elements very well. If you're interested in getting a free estimate for a Trex deck, please give us a call. Go visit our salesman, Rick Wedding at McCabe Lumber's showroom to see and touch this composite decking up close.
Got this deck finished that, in my previous blog, described how the home needed some additional work before we could proceed, due to the last contractor not doing what he should. Now, the homeowners have a 20' x 10' rectangle deck, equaling 244 square feet of space, with steps down to grade. This is a deck just begging for me and my coffee cup to sit out there and relax. All pressure treated lumber is Southern Yellow Pine #1, and purchased from our salesman, Rick Wedding at McCabe Lumber. It's not too late to get your new deck, so give us a call for a free estimate
Saw that phrase on a T-shirt once, and turns out it's no gimmick, but the truth. We just did a demo on the existing deck at the home in the photos. The previous deck builder attached the deck he constructed to the joists of the house, which is fine, but what isn't alright, is how he left things with the home. Instead of precisely cutting thru the brick veneer for only the space he needed, he took out too much, attached the deck ledger board, then left gaping holes around the house joists. With no flashing installed as well, water was free to run in through the holes, underneath the home. Luckily for this homeowner, this is an addition that was built, so no runoff or leaking into a basement, or any other feeder room underneath this home. The entire space under the door was left just as you see in the photo.....wide open....nothing put back or installed whatsoever. So for us to build a new deck, and pass the final inspection from the building department, we had to correct these mistakes......labor and time we didn't account for, as well as the homeowner. This is a prime example of why skilled labor isn't cheap. We didn't take advantage of this situation, nor do we ever, but it did have to be fixed properly in order to proceed. After discussing it with the homeowner, and working out a mutual agreement on the price of the additional work, we are now ready to build the deck.

We just completed this 20'9" x 14' Azek deck. The color is from Azek's Arbor Collection Line in the silver oak. Total square footage of the deck is 290 square feet. Also, installed the same color in the Azek fascia around the perimeter of the deck. The homeowner's did choose a very unique railing color scheme, and mixed materials. They chose Fortress Iron railing in Black Sand, with a top rail accent panel that has a circle pattern. On each of the 4 corner posts, we used a Timbertech post sleeve, skirt, light and cap in white. Very eye catching to say the least, and so is that view. Please keep checking back for our upcoming projects, or call us for a free estimate!
