B-Grade Redwood Deck with a Douglas Fir Pergola


Our customers wanted to build a new deck that could be an ideal spot for entertaining family and friends.  They decided to use B-grade Redwood because it has fewer and smaller knots than Deck Common Redwood.  The boards are laid at a 45-degree angle to the joists and secured with camo screws.  The railing was built using 4” x 4” redwood posts with Fortress railing panels between the posts.  To add a unique flair, the owners decided to add a Fortress ring top accent panel and a redwood drink cap.  We also built a Douglas Fir pergola over a large portion of the deck.  The pergola, posts, drink cap, and fascia are all stained with Sherwin Williams Greek Villa in a solid body stain.  We stained the decking in a semi-transparent SuperDeck in Heart Redwood.  Finally, the owners added a fire pit so they can still enjoy their beautiful deck, even on chilly nights.
