Experienced Wooden Deck Builder in Columbia
The traditional choice for deck building, wood is still a gorgeous and sturdy choice. We use pressure treated Southern Pine for most wood projects. We also offer beautiful hardwood choices such as Ipe.
Wood decks do require regular maintenance with stain or sealant. Depending on your property, if your deck is exposed to full sun most of the day or is under the cover of a heavily wooded lot, you may need more or less maintenance. The versatility in finishes allows you to choose different stain colors each time to make your deck look brand new.
This gorgeous custom deck is built from pressure-treated pine that has been stained. The flowing multi-level design features a centerpiece of twin staircases leading from the landing to the upper-level deck. The deck encompasses the entire back of the home with ample area for rocking chair relaxation, outdoor dining and entertaining and 360-degree views of tranquil Lake Murray from every angle.

Composite Decking from TimberTech, Trex and AZEK
Natural wood has met its match when compared to today’s composite decking. No other decking material requires as little maintenance as synthetic, nor can natural wood promise the longevity synthetic provides.
Benefits of composite decking:
- Low Maintenance: Composite decks require minimal maintenance, saving you time and effort compared to wood. Say goodbye to yearly staining or sealing; a simple hose or sponge can handle most spills and stains.
- Longevity: Composite decking materials can last for decades. They resist rot, decay, and insect damage, ensuring your deck's beauty and structural integrity endure over time.
- Aesthetic Versatility: Composite decks offer a wide range of colors and textures, allowing you to achieve the desired look for your outdoor space. You can mimic the warmth of natural wood or explore contemporary designs.
- Splinter-Free: Unlike traditional wood decks, composite decks don't splinter. This makes them safer for families with children and pets, providing peace of mind during outdoor activities.
- Environmentally Friendly: Many composite decking materials are crafted from recycled plastics and wood fibers. Composite is a sustainable choice that helps reduce the demand for new timber.
- Durability: Composite decks can withstand the elements. They resist fading, staining, and mold growth, ensuring your deck maintains its appearance even in harsh weather conditions.
- Enhanced Value: A composite deck is an attractive feature for potential homebuyers. It adds to your property's curb appeal and resale value, making it a sound investment.
- Comfortable and Safe: Composite materials stay cooler underfoot in direct sunlight than traditional wood decks, providing added comfort during hot summer days. They also offer excellent slip resistance.
- Warranty Coverage: Most composite decking manufacturers provide warranties, offering peace of mind and protection for your investment. These warranties typically span many years, assuring you of your deck's durability.
- Customization: Composite materials can be easily customized to suit your preferences and design ideas, ensuring your deck complements your home's style and outdoor lifestyle.
- Ease of Installation: Experienced deck builders can efficiently install composite decks, reducing labor costs and installation time compared to other materials.
Adding a composite deck to your home enhances your outdoor living experience. It provides long-term value and peace of mind, making it an excellent choice for homeowners seeking aesthetic appeal and functionality.
To avoid compromising the characteristics of the material it is important that it be installed properly. Our knowledge and experience working with synthetics over the years can ensure a space that not only meets but exceeds your expectations.
Many Columbia-area homeowners don’t want to stain their deck every year and in fact, if they use a low-maintenance material such as TimberTech or Trex, they never have to. There are a variety of synthetic decking materials that look very similar to wood but never require staining nor any annual maintenance. The only maintenance they require is using a sponge or hose to remove anything you would remove from your indoor floor such as ketchup and food spills. Otherwise, the mud that’s tracked on along with the dirt and pollen can be removed with a garden hose or perhaps the addition of a sponge and water.
