A deck is no longer just a wood platform that connects your house to your backyard. It is a great place to entertain with family and friends. Your deck can be as simple as a landing with a spot for your grille and a set of stairs or an elaborate extension of your home. Allow Alpine Contracting the opportunity to show you the options of a fully covered deck with recessed lighting and built in firepit. If you’re after a custom cascading water wall with a fire-feature, a built in grille or just let your imagination run wild, we can help you design it and make your dreams come true.
Natural woods such as redwood and cedar are easily recognizable and known for their rich color and exceptional beauty. They can both last for years upon years with proper care and maintenance. These species of wood can be used for both the deckboards and handrail alike. The price point of this product is less than its composite counterpart, however, must be stained routinely to keep its luster and protect it from the elements. These decks are beautiful when new and maintained, however, can deteriorate quickly if not properly cared for.
Composite decking is a material composed of multiple plastic and artificial materials compressed in a factory and produced in a controlled environment. Improvements have been made over the years and there are many manufacturers that offer an array of colors and styles. They range from gray to brown and many colors in between. There are lines that manufacturers now offer that have a natural wood look as well as a multi-chromatic look. This optional decking material is not a “no-maintenance” but a low maintenance option.
When selecting the right handrail, many options are available. We can install individual wood or wrought iron balusters on a redwood or cedar deck. If you are considering a composite deck, you may want to think about having black metal handrail installed. We as well have a custom metal fabricator who will visit one on one with you to come up with a design and custom build a one of a kind handrail for your new deck.
One great reason for updating your outdoor living area is the opportunity to create a space that everyone will enjoy and want to spend time together. Small or large, the possibilities are endless.
Your kitchen is the most utilized room in the house. It is also the area most widely used for entertaining. Take advantage of your outdoor space and we can install a built in grill with stone accent. We can add a beverage bar with a solid surface or stone top to add character. A gas line can be run for a natural gas fireplace or firepit for those cooler nights. Finish the look off with a tongue and grooved fully covered ceiling with recessed lighting and ceiling fans. All that's left are your seats, friends, loved ones and good times. Allow Alpine Contracting to create that perfect getaway not so far from home.
