• Choose a deck that fits your layout and budget.
  • Each deck will be specifically drawn for the various option available.
  • Listed deck widths take full advantage of standard size lumber.
  • All decks, stairs, and guardrails are certified for "Residential" use.
  • Post layouts as provided are required to certify the lateral wind load, vertical live
load, and guardrail live load code requirements.
  • Engineer highly recommends the guardrails be constructed as drawn.
  • Site visits for failed inspections not included in the listed price.
  • Paid site visit by engineer does not guarantee certified approval.
  • Material cost estimate assumes 2 x 6 PT deck planks and all lumber "not"
treated with Thompson Water Seal [5/4 PT deck planks and Thompson
treated lumber will cost more]
  • All drawings intended for experienced builders.
