Deck Design

As part of the process of each project, we use the best computer generated deck design program to create all the layout’s for the decks we build. When the deck design is completed, we discuss with our customers about the design that has been created for them. During this time, we encourage customers to ask questions and give us feedback before moving forward with the project. Below are a few examples of the deck designs we have created for our customers using the deck design program.

Deck Craftsmanship

deck-craftsmanship

At Autumnwood Construction, we believe that a deck is only as good as the builder. We create the best built decks thanks to our top notch service, quality materials, and customer focus. You may be wondering about what install techniques we use. As a top deck builder, we suggest that every deck be built with a single picture frame border. This border is acts as a drip edge for the deck. It also covers the framing/fascia gap. This doesn’t just create a beautiful feature for the deck. Rather, it also prevents rot, oil canning, and debris from building up in the framing/fascia gap. Another feature that we offer is a triple stack fascia. This covers the horizontal framing, adds depth to the deck rim, and provides crown molding for an interesting design.

Notice in the first picture below (grey deck) where there is no picture frame border, and you have oil canning of the fascia board. In the next two pictures you can see a cedar deck that didn’t have a picture frame border. As a result, you can see how the fascia board cap of the rim joist creates an area where water and debris can build up.

Details Tell the Real Story

Now below you can see how the picture frame border covers the fascia/frame gap. This also allows water to run through on the inside of the picture frame border, unlike the decks above there is not a joist directly underneath where the water and debris will fall through. The last function of the picture frame border is that it covers the cut ends of the decking which is kind of like a bull-nose in tile work.

In the first picture below you can see we just finished installing the decking and picture frame border, notice how the border is hung way over the rim joist. In the next two pictures you can see how the picture frame border covers over the triple stack fascia protecting the fascia/framing gap. This is an important detail in proper deck construction techniques that any deck builder company should utilize!

Our Deck Re-covers

We flash the tops of every joist with a peal and stick deck flashing membrane. This will cover all the old decking fastener holes and add extra lifespan to the old deck frame.

We also replace any hardware on the deck like hangers or carriage bolts ..etc that are showing signs of damage. Stairs are another big issue with re-covers because generally speaking they are the first part of the deck that fails. Usually due to improper construction practices. So we usually replace the stairs on most projects.

Every deck we build has a three year workmanship warranty. We use all hidden fasteners on our synthetic decks. We use screws and nails on our deck frames. All wood decking is attached with screws. Our wood decks come with Deckorators classic aluminum balusters.
