Here is a look at a Redwood and Cedar deck we built in Walnutport, PA.
Wrapped in RedwoodThis is a deck we re-built. It was originally all redwood, but due to lack of material availability, we framed it in Cedar and finished it in Redwood.
The OldThis is the old Redwood deck before we ripped it down. Believe it or not, it had stood for over forty years!
The UsualLike all the projects we get into, there was some rot that needed to be repaired. New rimboard, and the sub-floor had to be patched up.
Patched UpOne of the most challenging aspects of the rot repair was patching the hardwood flooring back together. We were able to save most of it, but luckily the homeowners had some left over from when it was originally installed. Looks pretty good I'd say!
Finally ready to start building a deck.
Old with the NewHere you can see the original cantilevered Redwood joists, with a few added Cedar joists. Believe it or not, the Redwood ones were all that supported the original walkway. 48" O.C.!
Mocking-up the stair stringers.
