Wood decks

Wood decks are a traditional and functional option many of our clients consider. When designing your wood deck, we’ll take traffic flow into consideration, maximizing the usable space in your dek design. We’ll also focus on style by including pergolas or other structural elements to define separate spaces or implementing pattern changes in the floorboards for a unique design element. We’re proud to say we also take outdoor furniture into consideration to make sure that deck space can be properly utilized once it’s complete. We enjoy putting together Coconut Grove, Miami Beach, Biscayne Park, Surfside, Sunny Isle, Bal Harbour, Coral Gables, Keystone Point, Ford Lauderdale, and Miami wood deck project blueprints for clients and showing them they can have the deck of their dreams.

PRESSURE TREATED PINE (PT)

For the South Florida climate, PT (pressure treated pine) is a great option and one of the most popular deck lumber selections. It’s affordable and guaranteed against rot and termites. If you’re worried about mildew and mold, PT is extremely resistant to both and has proven its longevity through countless projects. If you’re building a deck that will have direct exposure to sun and rain, we suggest using our Southern Yellow Pine that’s been pressure treated with ACQ, an arsenic-free preservative.

LONGEVITY AND STRENGTH

When building a deck, you want it to last as long as possible. That’s why PT is such a great option. It’s the least expensive wood material that’s guaranteed against rot and termites. We have yet to come across a PT product that has rotted or become infested. But if yours happens to be the first, we’ll gladly replace any damaged sections, no questions asked. PT is a strong wood that can handle the demands of a deck, especially during storm season. PT decking has a 15-year rating against insect damage and decay, though we’ve seen plenty of PT products that have withstood more than a quarter of a century without showing any signs of deterioration.

FIRE RESISTANT

PT has the same fire rating as concrete and steel, making it incredibly fire resistant and safe.

MAINTENANCE FREE

We’ve already mentioned that PT is resistant to mold and mildew, both of which can accumulate easily on deck surfaces. But with PT, an application of a bleach solution, pressure washer, or a combination of both will result in a deck that looks brand new in a matter of minutes. If quickly treated, mold and mildew won’t damage PT like build-up can on other types of wood. PT is a great selection for those who want to minimize the maintenance time their deck requires.

ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND

PT is sourced from managed forest projects. It’s naturally seasoned and based on Life-Cycle Assessment, the used treatment process earns EPP certification from Scientific Certification Systems.

IPE - IRONWOOD

Ipe (EE-pay), generically known as Ironwood, is a hardwood originating from South America. Also known by the trade name Pau Lope®, those who choose this material fall in love with its warmth and beauty. Ipe decks in Miami and Fort Lauderdale are some of the most versatile and stunning, thanks to this unique hardwood.

INCREDIBLE RESISTANCE

For those looking for a deck that can withstand it all, Ipe should be the first considered. It’s incredibly resistant to rot, insects, ice, salt, UV exposure, abrasion, chemicals, and splintering. The material is also Class A fire rated. Known for its incredible strength, durability, and stability through time and elements, Ipe ironwood is an ideal decking material for residential and commercial properties.

APPEARANCE

Ipe is simply stunning. The material features light to dark olive brown tones with stripes of lighter sapwood. Though it has an oily appearance, the combination of the wood’s fine texture and medium luster give it an overall luxurious glow. Ipe is up to three times harder than oak and is solid in both weight and durability.

FIRE RESISTANT

Ipe is incredibly fire resistant and safe, having the same rating as steel and concrete.

MAINTENANCE FREE

Ipe is a very dense wood that requires no treatments or sealers. While a sealer coat can be applied to preserve the material’s natural color, it’s not necessary. If left unsealed, the wood’s natural reddish-brown color will weather to a silver patina. If you’ve walked the Atlantic City Boardwalk, you’ve experienced the beauty and longevity of Ipe. The boardwalk’s planks have shown virtually no wear and tear over the past 24 years. Ipe is dense and smooth, so it won’t absorb water, bow, or twist with time. Ipe decks are not just durable but also safe for families to enjoy in a care-free environment. Ironwoods in general remain smooth due to their being one of the earth’s most dense woods. They will not absorb water, twist, or bow like some woods do. This means that if you use Ipe for your deck, you will be able to walk on it barefoot and carefree for a lifetime.

USES

Because Ipe is incredibly strong and durable, it can be used in a variety of structures and projects. It’s popular for boardwalks, decking, decks, porches, turnery, industrial flooring, furniture, decorative veneers, and more.

ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND

Ipe is sourced from managed forest projects. It’s naturally seasoned, kiln dried, and resistant to shrinkage.

Composite Decks

Composites, or man-made materials, are ideal for low-maintenance decks. While the materials may cost a bit more upfront, the savings over time can prove to be substantial. Our composite decking in Miami and Fort Lauderdale provides clients with stunning, durable, and low-maintenance decks they’re sure to love for years to come. With simple and regular cleaning, a composite deck can maintain its beauty without the hassle of wood decks. (Note: All synthetic materials can fade or appear altered over time)

TREX®

When it comes to our Fort Lauderdale and Miami area composite decking projects, we recommend and use TREX® for several reasons. First, the material is financially competitive, coming in at the same or even lower than competitive products. Second, the brand has proven its longevity. While many companies are unable to show their potential clients successful projects with their alternative deck lumber, our projects made with TREX® have been around for over a decade. TREX® stands by their material and will replace any defective pieces at no cost should an issue arise. With TREX®, customer satisfaction always comes first. While its pricing can be difficult to manage on a tight budget, the TREX® brand and experience is worth every penny.
