This recent custom deck re-build was the perfect refresh to this families outdoor living space. With a relatively new update to the exterior front of their contemporary Westwood home, our clients were looking to revitalize their backyard living space to match the feel of the frontside.
From demo to rebuild, Osborne Construction kept the original design of their old deck, however adding some new features such as post tech screw piles, a pergola and picture frame finishing to give this natural barefoot brown pressure-treated wood a modern and high-end finished look.
With our recommendation, the clients choose to move forward with Postech Screw Piles as the foundation to their new deck to ensure the longevity and levelness of the structure. Installed below the frost line, screw piles serves not only as the load bearer of the structure but also provides effective resistance to uplift, something integral in a climate like ours subject to constant freeze/thaw cycles. Postech Screw Piles are both a foundation and an anchor and come with a warranty for peace of mind. If you have never heard of screw piles or are uncertain about the investment and benefits over concrete pads or piles, visit their Screw Piles vs Concrete fact sheet to see why we recommend these as our number one choice in starting your deck off right.
