Trex Deck Re-envisioned

On this project we were working with existing framing but added a lot. Let’s look at the details:

  • Built new large staircase for safe access to pool area.
  • Dried-in the space below the deck using a rubber roof.
  • Below the deck we installed white vinyl ceiling with built-in lighting.
  • Added lighting to stairs and select railing posts.
  • All new Trex Madeira decking with Trex Select railings.
  • Mitered stair treads for a finished look.
  • Installed a metal railing on the granite steps.
  • Took up the patio (pavers had heaved), flattened the patio foundation, and reinstalled all the pavers.
  • Substantial structural shoring including more connections to the house and beefy screws to hold the framing where nails were failing.
