Decks & fences that weather the seasons.

Our focus is on the longevity of our client's outdoor projects. 

 

We achieve this by implementing a thoughtful design that aims to solve the challenges posed by our climate. To this purpose, moisture management, frost depth for foundations,  and strength requirements are all considered.

 

We offer a variety of services that allow you to customize your deck or fence to your taste.  Want your deck to wrap around a tree?  We can do that.  Want your hot tub lowered into your covered deck?  We can do that as well.

 

All work is permitted as required, and we handle any line locates before digging.

Standard Wood Privacy Fence Specifications. 

 

  • Fence posts set a minimum of 6' below grade. This depth provides the leverage needed for stability.  Also, at this depth, the post is protected from frost jacking.

 

  • Posts set with compacted washed aggregate.  Good drainage around the post slows rot.  Also, unlike concrete, the aggregate can settle and compensate for compaction in the hole bore.

 

  • Treated lumber for rails and boards, incised treated lumber for posts.  Incised lumber has deeper treatment penetration which increases rot resistance.
