This deck replaced a much smaller one that was rotting out. At its highest point it was about 27′ off the ground. We had to install four foot deep footings and we also replaced the posts that supported the upper levels of the house because we discovered they were rotten when we disassembled the old deck. The material used here is Timbertech’s XLM series (PVC) decking in the color of Harvest bronze and the railing is Timbertech’s Radiance rail with lighted post caps. This is a beautiful deck that will impress anyone who visits the house.
