We courrently have a deck that is 10 ft x 12 ft and 8ft off the ground. It also has a railing about 3 ft high around the deck. The support poles holding it up are on cement blocks that sit above the ground and we are told this is not to code.
There is also a staircase going down into the backyard. We would like to have the deck enlarged to cover the whole back of our house which would be approx. 10 ft x 24ft. The deck is made of wood and our house is approx 13 yrs old.
Although the inspector did not "red flag" it, it is mentionned in my report the following:
"Deck posts are not resting on proper footings extending down below the frost line which may make the deck prone to heaving/settling. Deck appears level at time of inspection."
We would like a small deck built to replace the builders basic deck that is currently in our backyard. The largest portion of the deck would be approx 16' x 16' with a new staircase/landing and connection piece to the aforementioned section. This deck would be completed using composite decking and is low to the ground. We would like the project completed no later than mid May 2016 and our budget is approx $5K but can be negotiated as necessary.
We plan to build a small deck (approx 5x6 feet) with steps descending to the left and right as you walk out the patio door. The door is approx 3 feet above the ground. This deck would serve as a walk-out space, level with the kitchen floor that will allow you to descend either to the left, down onto the patio, or to the right onto the path around the side of the house. This part of the project is the primary focus.
Additionally we plan (depending on the cost) to construct a rectangular patio against the house (against the left half of the house as you walk out the patio door). The patio will measure approx 21x14 feet (with the length spanning from the steps mentioned above all the way to the side of the house, and the width extending out from the house). At some points along the perimeter we plan to have a few raised stone planters, with a couple gaps to give access to the grass area beyond. We plan for the patio to be stone, but we have not yet explored options. We do know that we prefer larger stones (i.e. 1-2 feet). Another addition would be a pergola over the patio, but that may be a future project. If we plan for this in the future, would the future requirement for footings interfere with the patio?
There is currently no path along the side of the house (right side as you walk out the door) and we are concerned that installing the deck steps now may interfere with this future project. Any advice on this would be appreciated.
Hi there, have a commercial building in Kingston, Ontario which has a wrapped around deck that sits on cribs. About 20 years ago, one of the large shipping boats clipped the corner of the deck and over time is has slowly started to sag.
We are looking for a company to repair the existing deck / structure. We believe the job requires propping / jacking up the parts of the decks that are sagging and replacing / fixing the deck as needed.
I can supply photos if needed.
