Decks we’ve designed and built around Central Iowa range from simple, single-level spaces to elaborate, multi-tiered, multi-functional spaces. Some are covered with roofs or pergolas, some are covered only by the big Iowa sky. Some decks have square corners, some have bayed corners and then…there are curved decks. Some low decks require only minimal stars and railing. Walk-out basements are popular in the Des Moines area, so many decks are high with railing and staircases. Some of our decks have been featured in local and national publications and some of our decks have won awards. But becoming a featured space of the home…of a neighborhood…thats what really matters.
The goal of our custom design+build process is to create your deck to be safe, functional, attractive and to “fit” your personality and lifestyle – outdoors. If you prefer the look of natural wood and tend to its maintenance needs, pressure-treated/southern yellow pine, cedar and hardwoods like Ipe are good choices. If you prefer and enjoy the lower-maintenance, splinter-free, “always party ready” nature of wood-alternative decking and railing, our recommendations include TimberTech and Trex capped composite lines and Azek’s capped polymer lines; all offer high-performance with a wide array of styles.
