Amazing Elevated Deck with Steel Deck Framing
Our customers knew they wanted to build a deck that would last for years, was very strong, and had a high fire rating. With this wish list, the best option was galvanized steel deck framing and composite decking material. The next step in the design phase was to choose colors and accents. Fiberon IPE was used for the main decking (laid at a 45-degree angle) and the step treads. The double picture frame, drink cap on the railing, and step risers are Fiberon Tudor Brown. We built the railing using composite materials and metal balusters. The horizontal 2” x 4”s on the railing are TimberTech Brown, while the post sleeves are TimberTech Kona Radiance. Railing balusters feature a single or double basket design in a matte black color. We also installed a handrail and Lake Powell step lights on the 5’-wide stairs. All these elements combine to create a beautiful deck that the homeowners will enjoy for years to come!
