  • Cedar Decks & Railings that are designed and built to look good and last the duration We hand select and install only the best quality Coastal Western Red Cedar which is sourced from certain mill distibutors rather that the lower grade 'picked through piles' at the local retail lumber yards.

  • Vinyl Waterproof Sundecks that Look good Longer! After years of using the rest, We have finally found the best! Due West exclusively now uses Tufdek water proof vinyl membranes for sundeck requirements that need to be either, waterproof, over living space, low maintenance or high traction.

  • Aluminum Railing's That are custom made (welded) for each application and powder coated with an extremely durable finish that can last a lifetime. With a large selection of colors and design choices, this low maintenance option will appeal to even the most discriminating of tastes.

  • Liability We carry 3 million in liability insurance including Structural Coverage, Just in case. We pay into 'Workers Compensation Board' coverage, Just in case.
  • Why does our Extensive knowledge and Experience in the Construction, Renovation & Restoration field,
    set us apart from most sundeck companies?

    Because we have rebuilt and restored many decks, including the house envelopes and structural building components as a result of some 'small' details (and 'big' details) that caused premature failure that can be attributed to other companies lack of Building Code knowledge, Construction and Building Experience and Seasonal cash grabs.

    Points of Interest: This complete cedar porch rebuild was redesigned as well as expanded around the entire side of the house to create a spaciously beautifull outdoor living space deck. This build was also in conjunction with an entire exterior remodeling project where the upper roof gables at both ends of the house were changed from bevel siding to Tudor and Panel with new fascia boards.

    At the back of the house, banding boards and flashing were inletted into the rock stucco and the lower section of the house we removed the stucco and replaced with hardi plank siding. The metal railing was replaced with a cedar railing and a decorative post was incorporated. Ad some new deck patio doors, breathable vynil lifetime warranty paint and you can see the transformation.

    The Details: The deck and porch were constructed in a way that made it possible for us to 'picture frame' the cedar deck planks around all deck perimeters, upper deck steps and floor window. You can see that we built an opeing around the lower basement window to let light in. You may also notice that the deck was thoughtfully built so that No deck planks were ripped (cut) down, accept to allow a 1/2" for scribing against the house walls. The Pergola rafters were also notched and interlocked on a slope into the beam timbers.

    Design elements: Tammy & Davis are 'house proud' people and did a fantastic job of picking stain colors, paint colors, deciding on layout instructions and choosing a great contractor ;)
