New Deck Builder in Morristown NJ

New Morristown Deck

 

This Morristown, NJ homeowner was ready to move his BBQ off his lawn and on to a new composite deck. Composite decking materials are low (not zero!) maintenance and provide a solid, long-lasting deck surface.  The average composite deck owner should expect to lightly clean their deck once every year or two.  This deck will not require any painting.

See how we built this brand new composite deck!

The existing sliders had rotten trim and lead out to old blue stone steps.  We removed both the door and the steps. The dimensions of the new deck are staked out on the ground and outlined with strings.  The footings are marked with stakes and outlined with orange spray paint.

Removing the stairs and digging the footings creates a lot of debris.  All rocks, concrete and loose soil are removed prior to framing of the deck and the soil is graded away from the foundation to prevent rain water from moving back towards the house.

Below, we have removed the rocks and debris and the ground has been graded for rain water run-off.  The framing is complete and ready for the framing inspection.  The new sliding door has been installed.
