Composite Deck built onto a Colonial Home

So you move into your nice and new colonial on a quiet street and notice that there's no deck to be found below your patio slider.

Step one, you go on the internet and Google a local "Deck Builder".

Step two you get a few estimates and pick the creme dela creme to start your project.

That's what happened when customers from our former research and development company Simply Additions LLC called us. They had a nice Colonial home in need of a large entertaining composite deck. They specifically chose a composite deck because of the low maintenance requirements.

After meeting with them we designed a multi-level Trex deck addition with a white vinyl railing.

Digging a Footing

Digging a deck footing for Middletown CT Building Code

Their backyard had many huge bolders below ground level, but we were successful in digging all the footings regardless.

Measuring Up
Footing measurement

The town required a 48" depth for each footing, it took some time but eventually we broke through all the rocks and passed our footing inspection.

Deck Layout

With the framing done we laid the building materials accross the structure to visualize the final product.

Taking the 1st Step

Now the deck has been completed, we wet it down to clean off any dirt and debris.

Here you can see the doggy door on the right side of the slider. Our customers wanted to make sure that their dog has easy access into and out of the home.
