Decks

flatwater builders has the knowledge and experience to guide you through the design, material selection, and construction phases of your new deck.  Our CAD design capability allows you to “try-out” different designs and make desired adjustments before work begins.

Depending on your budget and goals, we offer hardwood, cedar, thermally modified ash, or ACQ treated decking.  We have experience with galvanized steel framing for jobs that require extra strength and durability.  Our decks are beautiful, well built, and designed to increase your enjoyment and elevate your entertainment.  We can install a variety of railings including traditional wood spindles, steel and aluminum balusters, stainless steel cable, or custom designed and welded one-piece steel and aluminum.

We do not recommend composite or plastic decking and railing products from TimberTech, Trex, AZEK, etc.  These materials are expensive, fragile, dimensionally unstable, environmentally irresponsible, and generally just a waste of your hard-earned resources.  Composite decking is hot in the summer and brittle in the winter.  It cracks and fades and the inevitable scratches cannot be repaired.  This is perhaps the poster child for building products which fail to deliver on their extensive marketing hype.
