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 decks are low, requiring few stars and less railing. With the popularity of walk-out basements in the Des Moines area, many decks are high above ground 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 most become a featured space of the home…of a neighborhood…and thats what really matters.
Our goal is to design your deck space to be safe, functional, attractive and to generally “fit” your personality and lifestyle – outdoors. Our custom design/build processes ensure we make it “fit” for you. If you prefer the look of natural wood and tend to its periodic maintenance needs, pressure-treated/southern yellow pine, cedar and hardwoods like Ipe are good choices. If you prefer the look of wood and enjoy the lower-maintenance, splinter-free, “always party ready” nature of wood-alternative decking and railing, our recommendations include TimberTech’s and Trex’s capped composite lines and Azek’s capped polymer lines. These brands offer high-performance products with a wide array of styles.
