2015 Remodeling Award of Excellence — Outdoor Living
Our client’s 20+ year old wood deck was showing lots of wear and tear—the wood was even decaying in certain places. In addition, the built-in benches on the lower level limited the functionality of the space. Our client came to T.W. Ellis with the desire for a new deck with an updated, modern look. He requested that we work within the foot print of his existing deck, but maximize the functionality of the space and use all low-maintenance materials.
The new 3,000 square foot, three-level deck was built using Wolf PVC Decking in a contemporary gray color, with Azek PVC trim around the perimeter. The advantages of the new PVC decking over the original wood boards is that it will not split or rot, does not need to be stained or treated, and is extremely easy to maintain. The Feeney CableRail system utilized for the railing enhances the view of the deck’s lush surroundings, while also contributing to the modern appeal of the project. A Dek Drain water diversion system now provides dry, functional space under the deck that was not available with the previous structure. This deck has become a beautiful, spacious backyard oasis.
