Building a deck is a great way to increase your outdoor living space, and it’s never been easier, of course there’s also never been so many options. Deciding on the deck materials will be your first challenge.

​Two of the most common types of materials used are pressure-treated wood and composite. A pressure-treated deck has a naturally attractive appearance, but can be considerably more maintenance than composite decking.

​To retain it’s naturally appealing look, pressure-treated decking typically involves power washing, resealing, or staining every three years. Without the proper care and attention to detail, a pressure-treated deck may dry out, crack, and generally not provide the longevity you would’ve hoped for. On the plus side pressure-treated wood can be sanded and sealed numerous times throughout the life of the deck with an occasional board needing to be replaced.

Warranties for pressure treated wood decking tend to be up to 10 years less than those offered for composite decking. Composite decking, on the other hand is a low maintenance solution that has a distinct look and feel, though the initial cost can be almost twice as much as pressure-treated. This cost may be spread over a longer period of time, as composite decking materials usually come with a 25 year warranty. It’s composite material is resistant to rotting and doesn’t require painting, sustaining or sealing. Once installed, it essentially takes care of itself. This will appeal to homeowners who want to spend more time entertaining versus maintaining their deck. But keep in mind composite decks are not immune to wear and tear, and the materials are not scratch proof, and can also fade over time. So, how can you make the best choice of material? Reach out for a consultation.

Our customers love us. But don't just take our word for it ...

"We would just like to say thank you for the outstanding job that you and your staff did. We were very pleased throughout the entire process. Your crew was always polite and professional. It's rare today to find someone who not only give you what you agree to, but exceeds your expectations. We have gotten so many comments on how great the room came out. We spend just about every evening in the room. Unfortunately, the dog (Jeter) thinks the room is his. I look forward to doing business again in the future with you." ​- D.B. Clifton Park, NY

"It is obvious that Dave cares about his clients. He and his team are dedicated to reaching their goal of having clients thrilled with the quality and look of their completed project." - Patricia B. Ballston Spa

Annie and I look forward to working with you again on future projects. Thanks again for a GREAT job!" - Aaron and Annie R.

"We are very happy with our porch. Your team was excellent. Each and every person I dealt with was wonderful. I also want to comment on your service recovery—we only had a few issues—and the instance one was discovered it was IMMEDIATELY addressed. Very impressive! And not to sound repetitive --we were so happy with your company from beginning to end!" - Kristin and Tom

"We had a three season sunroom and deck added to our home the summer of 2007. Dave Bernacki met with us to review our plan and helped modify it to fit our budget. Dave and his crew were easy to work with, punctual and neat. They cleaned up the job site on a daily basis. The weather cooperated and we had our new addition within approximately 5 weeks, with no surprise additional costs. We are very pleased with the finished product . . . It's just what we wanted." - S.L., Saratoga Springs NY

"I have been involved with numerous contractors over the last 37 years (built 3 homes and put 2 major additions on. This is number 3), and have never experienced the generosity you have demonstrated. In fact, I have always been "nickeled and dimed" for every little ridiculous thing. Thank you so much for being different. Special recognition to Wayne. He seems to be on top of everything! He has demonstrated strong project management skills and has kept the project moving as fast as he can. His frequent communications are much appreciated." - Tony A.
