Custom backyard deck

When these Decatur, IN, homeowners decided it was time to replace their aging wood deck, they weren’t looking to add all kinds of bells and whistles. They did want an upgrade, though, to low-maintenance composite decking. They were ready—okay, more than ready—to make the switch to a low-maintenance lifestyle. No more sanding and staining or sealing for this family!

Choose Composite Decking for a Long Life and Lasting Beauty

For their new decking material, they selected AZEK Vintage decking in the Coastline color. It matches their home perfectly! Not only will this capped polymer decking reduce their deck maintenance chores, it will beautify their outdoor space. AZEK Vintage decking comes with a 50-year limited fade and stain warranty, the longest warranty in the industry.

The clients liked the size and shape of their original deck, so they elected to keep the same footprint for the new deck. As you can see in these photos, the deck is low to grade, so building codes do not require railings. The homeowners like the look of a railing to define the space, however, and want to add one in the future.

Decks and Screened Porches Just Go Together!

Access to this deck is through the clients’ existing screened porch, which means they have the best of both worlds. Their new low-maintenance deck provides a place to sit outdoors when the weather is good and they want to use their grill. The deck is great for star-gazing at night, too! The screened porch provides protection from pesky insects and rain showers. This is the way to enjoy outdoor living in Decatur, IN.
