Replacing the Old with the New

We received a call from a client that wanted to completely redo their old deck. It was in very bad shape, and one of the support beams looked very unstable. We first had to completely remove the old deck (without damaging the exterior of the home). Then we placed a new foundation that would fit their current patio and did a new deck installation in Powhatan that was a much better match for their current exterior décor.

the deck builder project was scheduled

The crew arrived at the home and began removing the old deck. The crew removed each board very carefully so there was no damage to the home. Once the crew had the old deck removed, they began digging new post holes. The posts were placed into the holes, then concrete was added to keep the posts in the ground securely. The crew set the first joists for the deck, then they attached them to the house. Once all the joists were firmly in place the crew started installing the decking boards. Each board was cut precisely, then laid into place until the decking floor was completed.

The crew then started working on installing the railings. Once the railing was installed and in place, the crew made the stairs that would lead up to the deck. The deck only required a few stairs and it didn’t take the crew long to get this done. The crew returned the following morning to add the stain to the deck. The stain would repel all water and liquids along with providing a nice finished look to the deck for the customers. The crew then laid a new foundation right off of the new deck and we were able to get the job done one day ahead of schedule.

Once the deck was stained the crew let the homeowners know that the deck was completely done. The homeowners came out to look at the newly built deck. When they saw it completely finished they both said it really looked great! The homeowners said they were sure glad that we removed the old deck because they were starting to get worried that someone would get hurt on it soon. The new foundation and deck are exactly what the customers wanted and they said they couldn’t wait to put their patio furniture back out because they just purchased it a couple of weeks ago.

A week later the customer called us to let us know that they had a big barbecue at their home to showcase their new deck. They said that everyone thought the deck enhanced their home and backyard and everyone loved it.
