This past Monday, we started on a new Azek PVC deck in the Miami Township area. The deck will total over 900 square feet, with the Azek Silver Oak as the decking floor color, and will be double picture framed in the Azek Acacia color. The benches that the customers are wanting for their seating area, will be done in the Acacia as well. To top the deck off, the customers have chose a beefy, black aluminum railing system from American Aluminum Railing products. These 2 Azek colors really compliment each other, and the black railing will really add some " umph" to it. Please keep checking back for the progress of this project on here, or under the BSG Partners tab on buildingsupplyguy.com. These decking and railing products can be seen at McCabe Lumber in Loveland. Go visit our salesman, Rick Wedding at McCabe and let him introduce you to your next deck materials!
With every project we showcase on here, I'm telling everyone to go visit our salesman, Rick Wedding at McCabe Lumber.....especially if you like what you see. We suggest for all of our customers to go visit McCabe's showroom before making decisions regarding their decking materials. Well now, you can start reading what he has to say in the above mentioned magazine......it's a very reputable resource that alot of us contractors refer to for decking problems, ideas, etc. Forums are open to the general public to ask a question, or explain about your deck experience, Very interesting articles in each subscription. Anyway, Rick has a featured article this month regarding marketing and social media. We've relied heavily on Rick's expert advice for our small business, and it has only paid off this year. So, if you're a decking contractor, a remodeler, or even a DIYer, do yourself a favor and contact Rick for your building needs. Don't forget to grab yourself a cup of coffee and check out the magazine each month for up to date materials on the market, blogs, reader feedback, and future articles from Rick Wedding.
Hope all of you had a great holiday with your family and friends. Anyway, with colder weather on it's way and gloomy dark skies, why not get ahead of yourself and start thinking about your new deck, an existing deck restoration, pergola or patio?! We are currently scheduling for the 2013 season....and folks, it's literally just right around the corner. It can be completed by the time the sunshine comes back out for your and your family to enjoy.

materials for the upcoming season. There's always something new and eye catching in their beautiful showroom. Then come home, give us a call and let Thomas Decks come out to your home to discuss your plans with you. Matt can

Thomas Decks just recently finished this beautiful Azek deck out in Liberty Township. This is a 18' x 20'11" deck with a 2' bumpout, and a wheelchair accessible ramp down to grade. It's 390 total square feet, and only 9" above ground at the highest elevation. All framing is Southern Yellow Pine #1 with no framing members touching the ground except for the supports which are encased in concrete footers. All 6x6 posts notched with 2x8 bandboards and 2x8 joists at 16" OC. All of the Azek, 5/4x6 decking in the Kona color was screw installed, and also installed parallel with the back of the home, with a picture frame border around the perimeter of the deck, in the Azek Brownstone color. Love this color combo, and the owner's choice to use the lighter color as his border, around the darker decking color....it's different and works beautifully with his home color scheme. Azek Kona fascia was used to cover all rim joists to provide a finished uniform appearance. As long as the homeowner keeps his grass very trimmed around the bottom of the deck, there still should be enough ventiliation to decrease the growth of mold and mildew. Also, there's cleaners on the market for PVC and other composite decks that can help as well. The homeowner also wanted an open plan, only choosing to go with small sections of railing in the Timbertech Radiance rail in the Coastal White color. The posts that support the roof load, are wrapped in a decorative PVC wrap to provide a more finished look and flow with the railing. As you can see, there is a 12' x 22' roof over a portion of the deck. Gable shaped roof with a slope to tie into the existing roof. Trusses were built to span 22' without columns in the middle of the deck. Cathedral ceiling took shape of the gable roof, with ceiling fan installation, ridge vents and soffit vents installed for proper air circulation. Ceiling in tongue and groove pine painted white. All of the decking, framing, railing, trusses, ceiling materials courtesy of our salesman, Rick Wedding at McCabe Lumber. The linear feet of the kitchen, including grill, cabinet, and seating area is 24'. Steel stud and construction support off of deck with concrete backer board with metal lathes. Southern Chardonay Ledgestone was installed on the bottom counters and around the bottom of the firepit by Drew Mueller's team at Brick Tech, and they did a beautiful job on the stone. The granite countertops in the Paradisio stone for the kitchen and the top of the firepit, were provided and installed by Scott haynes with Cinci Granite. Both Drew and Scott were wonderful to work with, and would recommend anyone to give them a call if you're looking for a beautiful veneer stone or countertops. To top this deck off, the owner wanted rope lighting around the perimter of this deck to enjoy at night. After fighting for a variance to build this deck, it was well worth it and would like to thank everyone again involved on this project. If you're needing a beautiful outdoor space, then give us a call, and we can make it happen!
