Footings: should provide a solid foundation to support your deck, therefore footings are crucial
part of deck construction. Base on a deck design, one should figure out how much total loads
including static and dynamic loads (dead and live loads) are transferred from different parts of
the deck to footings or concentrated points of contact with the ground. The more footings your
deck has, the less weight each footing will need to carry, because the total loads are now
distributed through more footings.

Ledger: Ledger board is the transition between your deck and your house. In other words, your
deck is attached to your home by using a ledger board between.

Framing: Framing is the back bone of your deck that provides a structure support to your deck.
Joints are repeated structural parts of a deck framing. Joints in general determine the structure
and strength of a deck.

Decking: The surface or the top layer of the deck that you walk on it is called decking. Wood is
usually the material that is used for decking. There are different options of woods for decking
such as cedar, redwood, pressured treated wood, exotic wood and more.

Stairs: Stairs come in different forms, sizes and shapes. Usually most decks are built with some
sorts of stairs. Minimum requirement for width size of stairs are 36 inches, but we suggest 48 inches width if possible.

Railings: Wood rails are the most popular railing type that is used for decks, porches, gazebos and
pergolas. Posts, rails, balusters and a top cap are the components that are used in wood rails.
Railings come in different choices and designs. It is important to select the design that matches
the style and color scheme of your house.

Porches: Similar to a deck, a porch is an extension to a home or apartment. Whether you need to
build a new porch or replace your existing porch and adding some features into it such as railings
or stairs, we can help. Just give us a call!

Patios: Patios are little courtyards adjoining a house and used as an area for outdoor lounging,
dining, etc. Patios are usually paved, bricked, concreted, or wood installed.
