Deck of the Month Winner - July 2018

Congratulations to Barton from Washington for winning our Deck of the Month contest for July! He built his deck with a wide range of products from DecksDirect. From the Grace Vycor Self-Adhering Flashing Tape to protect his joists and the Camo Hidden Fasteners to install his deck boards, to the Deckorators Round Aluminum Balusters and the OZCO accents, his new outdoor space is truly a DecksDirect deck!

Here's what Barton had to say about his project:

"When we purchased our current home, our first priority was to update the interior, knowing full well the deck was going to need serious repair and/or replacing. Fast-forward 2 years, and this summer it as finally time to tackle the deck.

While I consider myself an avid DIYer, I'm not a professional, and frankly the deck rebuild was something I was just a little intimidated with. So to compromise, I had a professional deck builder complete the necessary framing portion while I took the project to completion doing all the deck boards, railing, and other visual details. In other words, if you can see it, I did it! Before starting the project, I gathered as many sources as possible, and discovering your site and retail solutions via DecksDirect was immeasurable.

With DeckDirect's help, I was able to make my vision for the new deck a reality. From the Vycor Flashing Tape to protect the new joists, Camo Fasteners for a clean finish, and the OZCO accessories, I was thrilled to be able to go to one place for my decking needs and have those items delivered directly to me.

One area of the deck I was not looking forward to was completing the railing and attaching the balusters, but the Uni-ball Connectors, Deckorators Rail Connectors, and DecksDirect how-to guides made that process much simpler and the rails look great!

Thanks DecksDirect for all your help!"
