Do I have to replace my whole deck, or can I just replace decking and railing?

Many of the times we find the structure of the deck to still be solid, and only the decking and railing to be rotting away.  This is a result of the deck being constructed out of green treated material, which lasts longer than the cedar decking. In this case, we can replace the deck boards and the railing, saving you the cost of framing a new deck.

My logs are turning black what should I do?

We see this often in log homes and homes with cedar shakes.  Once the finish has deteriorated, no longer repelling the moisture and the UV rays, the wood will start to mildew.  This is often times what you are seeing with the blackening. It’s important to get as much of the surface blackening removed as possible, using a solution such as TSP to clean and kill the mildew.  If the blackening of the wood has soaked deep in, you may not be able to fully remove that appearance, only stop it from getting worse by killing the surface mildew and then protecting it with a high-quality exterior stain or paint.

Do I need a permit to build my deck/porch?

You should only work with a licensed residential builder in the state of MN.  They should have a license number that begins with BC followed by numbers. The contractor will then be responsible for determining if a permit is needed and if it is submitting all of the necessary information and following the permit process.  If you build the deck yourself without hiring a contractor you will be responsible for the same standards that the contractor would be if hired by you. If you work with a contractor who is not licensed or do the deck yourself without pulling a permit you will most likely be fined and required to bring the deck up to code.

Do you offer design for deck and porches?

Yes, we are a full-service design/build company.  We are happy to build the deck to match your design or work with you to create your dream design.
