It all starts with the frame…
FORTRESS STEEL FRAMING
Why build a 25-year deck on a wood frame that rots? Our Evolution steel deck framing and stair system is the next evolution in decking. If you know how to frame with wood, you can frame with steel, even on curves. The interlocking joist and ledger system lets you build sturdy, safe decks with less effort. Our powder coated finish provides increased corrosion-resistance and a more finished look.
DeckMasters uses the best techniques available in the industry to frame decks. With special attention to building codes, we build beyond requirements to give a strong, long-lasting framing system. Our pressure treated lumber is selected from the highest grades of Southern Yellow Pine and treated with non-corrosive, eco-friendly wood preservation chemicals in a controlled environment. We use heavier posts (6×6’s) which are installed within concrete footings that are double the code required size. Our support beams are always 2×10 laminated boards. Our floor joists are usually 2×8 or 2×10 boards which are more tightly spaced at 12” centers to provide added load carrying capacity and less bounce in the floor system. Finally, we use bonding hardware such as joist hangers, brackets and straps to give positive connection strength and dependability.
