Location: Chaska, MN
Renovations: Deck Installation
A Chaska area couple was frustrated that moisture and pooling water was causing their wood deck to rot and decay, and they were no longer able to enjoy their outdoor space. In addition to being unsightly, the deck was becoming unsafe because rot was occurring where the main posts were situated, compromising the structural integrity.
The couple contacted Iron River Construction to inquire about replacing their aging deck. They were impressed with our salesmanship and local ties to the area and chose to work with us to build their new deck.
A Low-maintenance Deck Installation
The couple, who live in a two-story home with a walk-out basement, wanted a lower maintenance material for their new deck. After meeting with them and listening to their concerns, our team showed them TimberTech composites and stylish Westbury Tuscany aluminum railings.
TimberTech is made with 100% polymers and is designed to capture the color-blending appearance of natural wood without the associated maintenance, fading, staining, cracking, or rotting. The couple loved our deck design suggestions and chose TimberTech in Terrain Brown Oak to match their home’s siding.
We also recommended refacing their existing framework but replacing all the posts with proper mechanical fasteners to lift them off the concrete so water can pass to prevent future rotting. We also built new “wrapped” stairs, which are safer and wider than the previous ones. The Iron River crew followed the design and scaled drawings precisely during the building process, so the results turned out exactly as expected.
A New Custom-designed Deck
The couple loved their new deck and were especially happy to once again entertain and enjoy family dinners and lazy days on their deck during the warmer months. They were also grateful that we were able to reuse their old frame, which saved them thousands of dollars!
