Indian Trail contractor decks out consumer's outdoor area
From the sinking spots to the popped-out nails, Tega Cay, South Carolina, members Tom and Kris Tremblay knew their deck needed to be rebuilt.
They found highly rated A Deck Above of Indian Trail, North Carolina, on Angie’s List, and say they chose them based on their reviews, overall bid, experience and professionalism.
There were a few delays due to an unexpected need for an engineer, which threw off the timing for a landscaper and another contractor collaborating on the project. However, Tom says their work proved worth the wait.
The Tremblays were very much involved with the design and planning, but to save money, they decided to mirror the footprint of what was already there for the most part.
“A significant improvement was the use of composite for the deck boards, railing cap, stairs and skirt boards, and to use black aluminum spindles on the railing,” Tom says.
The composite boards make the deck soft, and keep it from fading or warping with the weather, according to Tom. “My favorite part of the project was seeing how well they built the new deck,” Tom says. “It’s far better and more robust than the previous one.”
