As a Decking Contractor in Vancouver the structure is one of the most important elements when I first look at a deck. If we don’t ensure that the structure is properly done and not compromised by rot it doesn’t matter how beautiful the deck surface is. The pictures following is a sundeck we just finished rebuilding and upgrading the framing.
As Vancouvers top Decking Contractor we know what your deck needs we installed an extra joist to every existing one. That alone though is not enough we also installed the required solid blocking. The deck owners are amazed at how strong there deck no is and are planning to have a large wedding party there which they can now enjoy with the peace of mind this safe deck will give them.
We installed a aluminum railing with obscure glass, this guves the owners the privacy that they were after on the deck yet still allow them to enjoy the beautiful trees that are surronding there property. It is the decking contractors responsibility to not only make the deck strong and safe but also bring in design aspects so that the outdoor living area is appealing and well suited for the clients needs and wants.
These existing stairs were very unsafe seeing that there was no railings and the rise and run are not the same along the span. I could go on about what is wrong with these stairs but I think the picture speaks for itself.
Now just by looking at the picture you can see what a proper decking contractor should be doing with a set of stairs of your deck
