This is a photo of Massaranduba left untreated. Over time, without any oil, Massaranduba will weather naturally and turn to the silver/gray finish you see here. Please visit buildingsupplyguy.com to view photos of our day by day contruction of this deck, or you can drive yourself to McCabe Lumber, ask for Rick Wedding (our salesman), and he will personally show you this beautiful, exotic wood.
The photo is of raw, fresh, natural colored Massaranduba, a.k.a. Brazillian Redwood. It's so fresh, that it just came out of customs last week, after waiting 3 weeks for the rainy season to end in Brazil to harvest the wood. It's sleek, beautiful and strong as the Ipe' wood, but more economical. Today, Thomas Decks started framing up a 14' x 33' square foot deck. Southern yellow pine for the frame, posts and railing. All Massaranduba decking, top railing, step treads, with classic, round, black aluminum balusters. .All treated framing, and all Massaranduba wood courtesy of Rick Wedding, salesman @ McCabe Lumber.
This is a completed Trex Transcend, composite deck in the Lava Rock color, with white PVC railing systems. A 12' x 6' walkway out of the french doors which leads into a larger 14' x 20' deck area, with a 4' x 6' bumpout for the grilling area, and one set of 7' wide steps.

This is the future site of a Trex Transcends composite deck, with white PVC railing, and one set of steps @ 7' wide. At the back door, which is located on the other side of the house will be a 12' x 6' walkway of the composite decking which will lead into a larger 14' x 20' deck, with a 4' x 6' bumpout for the grilling area. Anytime you're building into a hillside like the one in the photo, you will have to use a Geotech to determine where, and how deep your deck contractor can dig for the support holes. Please check back for the progress of this deck.
