The original existing deck had many issues. Structural members were Doug Fir lumber that had been stained and/or painted. The drainage from the gutter configuration was not adequate, creating a overflow problem onto the deck. Thus, creating deterioration on the deck as well as facilitating vegetation growth under the deck. The entire structure was unworkable and was removed.
New deck structrual was constructed with ACQ pressure-treated lumber with joists placed 12" apart (12" On Center). Drainage gutters where enlarged to 6" gutters to eliminate the overflow problem. Azek decking was installed using hidden fasteners. Multipie Azek deck colors were used. Raised tier deck accommodates table with seating. Custom built-in benches with planter boxes surround new paver stone, creating the inviting look.
