This house had a steep rear yard and most of it was not usable for much other than maybe sled riding ;-) A deck was the answer. We designed a deck that maximized the use of the backyard, building to the required property line setback on one side and the This house had a steep rear yard and most of it was not usable for much other than maybe sled riding ;-) A deck was the answer. We designed a deck that maximized the use of the backyard, building to the required property line setback on one side and the rear and up to the walk-up stairs from the basement on the other side. Because the deck was so visible from the road the owner really wanted to make a statement with their deck. They used Redwood Evergrain composite for the decking, Premier white railing and wrapped the outer band in Azek PVC trim board. They also elected to have edging and railing installed under the deck since it was also very visible. The result is fantastic looking and ultra low maintenance.
