Time for a new Deck

When we purchased our new home, we knew one of the first projects would be replacing the old deck. It served its purpose for many years, but now it was old with peeling paint and rotting boards. My goal was to replace it with a deck that would go the distance with little-to-no maintenance, so we chose capped polymer composite. After tearing down the old deck, I built the frame out of pressure treated lumber. Once the decking was complete, I used fascia boards to hide the pressure treated frame, installed composite rails, and added some lighting to use when entertaining. I have a gate kite to be installed soon and composite post wraps to install to the bottom of the posts. We are very pleased with the way it turned out and plan to enjoy it for many years to come.
