Composite Decking Construction

Porch Construction

We recently visited Schuyler, New York to help our new customer with custom deck and railing construction. Needing an easy transition into the house, we custom designed a ramp which created the perfect solution. To ensure a long lasting product we used DuraLife composite decking and 100% virgin vinyl railing. After the initial planning phase, we created a digital blueprint to help our customer visualize their new decking.

Decking Installation

We began the installation by framing and pouring a concrete footer. To ensure a solid platform we set the footer below the frost line at a depth of four feet. Using premium treated lumber from local Ilion, NY and JK lumber located in New Hartford, we framed the ramp and deck. While constructing the frame we used 6×6 posts and sleeved them with vinyl to produce a sturdy, elegant skeleton. After the frame was complete, we used DuraLife composite decking using a hidden fastening system. Putting the final touches on the decking system we installed vinyl lattice, creating a refined look.

Vinyl Railing Installation

After the DuraLife decking was installed, we followed up with virgin vinyl railing. Our customers loved the maintenance free nature of our vinyl railing and added their own design with Newport top rail. While most are skeptical about the strength of vinyl railing, we use aluminum stiffeners to ensure a solid product.

Water Guard Installation

After completing the composite deck, we were able to install a new roof system. Using ice and water guard on the entire roof we ensured our customers issues with leaking were a thing of the past. Once this was completed we installed premium vinyl soffit to enclose the roof structure and aluminum fascia to cover exposed wood.
The entire project created a revised and enhanced look for our customers home. Preventing leaks, minimizing maintenance, and ensuring years of peace of mind, our customers were extremely happy with the result.
