Deck Safety Is Critical

CASE STUDY | Decking | Mr. Mims | Birmingham, AL

Is the Deck On Your Home Even Safe?

old wood deckThe Mims are recent Durante customers who live over in Vestavia Hills. They had a large rickety deck on the back of their home. They called us for a site inspection and to get a quote to replace their old deck.

The old deck had aged to the point where our customers could no longer safely enjoy being outside on it. Located high off the ground, the deck was old and wobbly. Full of splinters. Nail heads were popping up everywhere. Shaky hand rails. It was a real mess.

What We Did

maintenance freedom (1) - Copy

The Mims hired Durante Home Exteriors to remove the old deck, and build a brand new deck with composite deck boards, vinyl handrails, and also install a low-voltage lighting system so they could have nice ambient lighting in the evening times.

Not only is the new deck safe and strong, it’s also virtually maintenance-free. Composite decking is an ideal choice for homeowners looking to eliminate the maintenance headaches associated with a wood deck. Composite decking is a wood alternative, it will not decay or splinter, and bare feet love the way it feels!

Durante Home Exteriors entry door (2)The low voltage lighting system we installed is a special added feature that many of our customers want. There is really nothing quite like relaxing on a deck with ambient lighting on a nice relaxing summer evening.

Mr. and Mrs. Mims no longer need to worry about if there deck is safe or not. They can rest assured knowing their new deck is safe, durable and code compliant.

Plus they can do like they used to, and have all their friends and neighbors back over for cook-outs and get togethers and with their new deck they can do in style and convenience!
