Decks Contractors: designers, builders, companies long island NY
By Giuseppe Abbrancati
Decks are constructed out of 2×10 pressure treated lumber for joists with triple 2×12 girders set on 12” cement piers 36” below grade. But the finishing of a deck can be any type of wood desired or a composite material such as Timbertech or Azek offers much less maintenance than most woods. The planks can be screwed down or hidden fasteners used. The under carriage of the deck is concealed with soldier courses of the same material used on top. Single or double row borders can be added on top to enhance the style of the finished deck. Railings are often made from any of the natural woods used or any of Timbertech, Azek or Tamko products also.
