Replacing an older deck following the same footprint, this deck totals approximately 507 sq. ft. The upper tier serves to access the patio door into the home and as a BBQ area, while the lower tier is a lounge deck at grade. Along with updating the deck features, the non-compliant stair guard was brought up to code.
Brown PT. 2 x 6 decking was installed with picture framing and splines. A pre-engineered metal and glass guard was chosen for the deck, with metal balusters the stairs. The piers were constructed with concrete sonotubes with belled out concrete footings and 6×6 wood posts.
