Miguel Shows an Artist’s Touch
We used Azek Brownstone Composite Decking and Fortress tempered glass balusters to create a zero maintenance deck nestled in this hilltop oak grove in Santa Rosa, California. Our retired clients wanted a deck that would never need more work.
Azek decking repels stains and never fades. Of course we used Deckmaster Hidden Brackets. With decking this good, who wants to see screw heads? In the few areas where we couldn’t use Deckmaster we used Cortex screws and plugs that match the Azek perfectly. You have to look really closely to see the plugs.
The railing design was a unique blend of materials using Azek for the rails and cap, painted redwood posts, and Fortress Pure View bronze tinted tempered glass balusters. The color worked perfectly, tying together the Azek Brownstone and the dark stain of the redwood siding on the house.
This huge deck took over three months to build. Not only was the site was quite challenging but there were also a variety of complicated areas that needed fussing. The crew took all the challenges in stride and the results are immaculate. The angled stairway was particularly problematic and Miguel really showed an artists touch in the way he fanned the deck boards on the landing.
The Santa Rosa building inspector gave us a great compliment on this project. He said that if everybody built decks like ours, we wouldn’t need building departments! Coming from a guy who has seen hundreds of decks we really appreciated the compliment.
