There's nothing like a new Trex deck to enhance your backyard experience. Project: We removed the existing pressure treated wood deck and replaced the deck with new composite deck boards and handrails. We also painted the substructure to match.

Even consider adding metal elements like aluminum balusters.
Did you know the average time and price to stain a deck is 20 hours and $850? It's time to a consider composite deck.

This pool deck was built for Saturday afternoons - Rest & Relaxation. Project: We designed and constructed a pressure treated wood deck that was built around a pool. In all, the deck was 2-levels and 500 sq. ft. The project took 1-1/2 weeks to complete. Design Tip: Consider using 5/4" x 6" deck boards as the top handrail because the board is wide enough to accommodate cups, making it that much easier to enjoy the sun.

But, Trex also has 10 Transcends deck colors and 7 railing colors; so, you can mix-and-match however you want.
It's July and 75 degrees at night. Perfect for a family gathering (and a picture)! Project: Rejuvenating a home's exterior can come in many forms. In this particular project, we added a bathroom to the Master Bedroom (dormer), a new roof, and new landscaping.

Select a few perennials, good soil and mulch to complete the project.

Have you ever considered just starting from scratch and building new? We have. We do that, too. Project: We built a new home; this is just the framing. New builds can take anywhere from 4-6 months to complete construction. Design Tip: Start with your finances. Set a budget for the project, then add 10%-20% more for additional expenditures. Then, find the location and work with an architect to start the process. From idea to move-in, the project will take 12-18 months.
