The basic size and shape of their old deck worked well, but it was a little past it’s prime. After talking we decided that we would create a low maintenance deck with composite material and make a few improvements over the old one along the way. Some of the changes include: - Move the stairs to the driveway to flow a little better. - Add a large landing for the stairs to the back yard. - Utilize low maintenance materials for the deck. - Add low voltage lighting on each rail post. - Replace the fence and associated gate around the entire property. What a change for the better! This one really turned out fantastic!
