Upper and Lower Level Steel Framed Decks

Our customers had two decks and a deck cover on their home, but they wanted to upgrade to steel framed decks and add more appeal to their home. They planned on this being their final home and wanted to create the outdoor living space they had always wanted. Knowing this was their forever home, they wanted to ensure that the decks they built would last. We discussed the numerous options available, and they decided to build using galvanized steel deck framing and composite decking. In addition, the homeowners wanted to use stucco columns instead of 6” x 6” support posts. Both decks are designed using a double picture frame, with the main boards laid at 90 degrees to the joists. On the upper deck, the owners chose TimberTech Pecan for the body and TimberTech Mocha for the double picture frame. The lower deck was built using Deckorators Ironwood for the body of the deck and Deckorators Driftwood for the double picture frame. We also worked with Creative Metals to construct the custom wrought iron railing the customers had designed. It features 3” x 3” posts with belly-style balusters, these bow out along the front and have a curl design at the top of each one.
