Let us create a functional space for your family’s outdoor living needs. Decks extend your home’s square footage, providing areas to relax, host neighbors or grill your perfect summertime burgers. Decks are not only functional but also increase your home’s curb appeal. Add chairs, decorative railings, planters or awnings to bring your style outside.
The experts at Redwood Roofing and Remodeling will work with you to design the custom deck to complete your home’s design.
During a deck build we’ll install the necessary footings before adding the floors, railings and stairs. We can customize the stairs, spindles and railings for your aesthetic or needs. Perhaps you’d like custom-built flower boxes added to your railings – done! Let’s work together to create the deck your home has been lacking.
During your consultation, our designers will help you select the type of decking that’s right for your style, needs and budget. We will take into account your desires for sustainability, maintenance and looks and offer our expert suggestions for products and colors.
This is the #1 decking material sold today (think the green-tinged wood you see at your local hardware store) due to its affordability. In fact, appoximately 75% of all new decks in the United States are built with pressure-treated lumber. This decking material is affordable, readily available anywhere in the U.S., and easy to cut and fasten with screws or nails. We recommend pressure-treated wood for families wanting the economic, standard choice for their decks.
Composite decking is the fastest-growing decking material today. It is extremely weather and stain-resistant, making it a great choice for many areas in the U.S., including Northwest Indiana’s distinct seasons. Composite decking is made of wood and plastic and can last for 25-30 years.
These woods are high-quality but very expensive decking options. Both redwood and cedar are rich in color and boast natural resistance to rot and decay.
These are exotic, rich-grained woods. While durable and resistant to rot and insects, tropical hardwoods are considerably more costly and are heavy and difficult to cut and drill. The most commonly used tropical hardwood is ipe. Most tropical hardwoods are so dense they don’t accept stain well, so we’d recommend applying a UV-blocking wood stain every 3-4 years.
