Building a new deck is one of the most cost-effective home improvement projects a homeowner can undertake. A quality deck can add more than 70% of its cost to the value of a home – not to mention increasing curb appeal for prospective buyers.
But we at Rick's Custom Fencing & Decking never lose sight of the fact that our customers aren't simply building decks; they're creating outdoor living spaces for cooking, entertaining or just plain living. We realize choosing a decking material involves making a long-term commitment, and we're eager to help our customers select a material they can live with. We offer a spectrum of decking materials, from natural to synthetic, including:
Nothing beats the beauty of a custom-designed cedar deck. Our cedar decking materials are made from native Port Orford cedar, which has been proven in strength and hardness tests to be the strongest material available for wood deck construction. Not only does Port Orford cedar resist warping when exposed to extended pressure, but its resilience under heavy impact makes it a popular construction material for a variety of applications.
Our custom cedar decks are specifically designed to match each customer's unique tastes and to complement the home's architecture. We also provide a selection of decorative handrails, including aluminum and stainless steel cable rail systems, to add a touch of sophistication.
TigerWood is an exotic hardwood decking material that offers both luxury and durability. One of the finest-quality hardwoods on the market, TigerWood ranges in hue from golden-brown to reddish-brown, with striking black and brown streaks. Its natural resistance to rot and decay makes it a popular choice for homeowners who want to lend an air of opulence to their outdoor living spaces.
In the growing marketplace for low-maintenance decks, PVC is the new kid on the block. PVC decking material is made entirely from cellular vinyl, so it's lighter than cedar or composite, yet engineered to resist sagging. A simple hosing will keep a PVC deck clean, while its hard capstock shell protects it from damage and stains caused by normal deck use.
Our Azek PVC decking has an embossed wood grain with superior slip resistance, resulting in a safer deck for kids and guests. Because it's made from inorganic material, a PVC deck won't surrender to cracking, splintering or rot.
