DECK FOOTINGS THAT LAST LONGER By pouring deck footings with rebar reinforced concrete, we are able to bolt the posts onto a Simpson StrongTie galvanized stand off. This holds the post about an inch above the concrete which prevents moisture from wicking up through the end grain of the posts. most of the concrete footing is burried below final grade with just a few inches visible at the surface.  

Making decks last longer.

Distressed Cedar Beams in Screen room

In this screen room project, new Western red cedar beams were brought in ‚Äčas rough sawn. The beams were then beaten with chains, hit with an axe, scuffed with a chainsaw, and torched. Once the beams were washed, they were ready to be installed.
