DecksDirect Deck of the Month Winner!
Read through below to check out photos of the deck building process and learn some tips and tricks that put this deck up above the rest!
Deck and Porch Columns
Foundational strength and stunning looks, columns accentuate the architectural style of your home and add a stately look to your outdoor space. Whether structural or decorative, columns are a long-lasting way to help your deck space stand out.
Aside from just adding a stylistic detail or support strength to an upper-level deck, columns also deliver a clean look for your under deck area. This opens up the possibility of adding a deck drainage system to create a dry, patio space below with little extra cost!
Hidden Fasteners for a Clean, Finished Look
Our Deck of the Month champions decided to use the customer-favorite Cortex Concealed Fastening system to cleanly attach their TimberTech/AZEK stair boards along the stair treads for a picture-frame view along each step.
On the deck floor itself, the Deck Dogs crew used the new CAMO EdgeClip fastener to secure their composite deck boards in place without visible screws or nails stealing the show or ruining the day. The CAMO Edge fastening system from CAMO Hidden Fasteners uses a stainless steel clip to connect the grooved deck board to the deck joist below while a stainless steel screw drives down to create a tight hold and a consistent 3/16 inch board gap.
Modern Metal Deck Railing
Lastly, Chris and his team installed a sleek metal deck raiilng system to the backyard project. Crafted from powder-coated aluminum, metal railing lines boast thin balusters for open views of the neighborhood while the strong, structural posts are impervious to damage from moisture, rot, or insects for a long-lasting barrier with minimal maintenance.
