Pergola Arbor & Trellis

The Pergolas and Arbors in the examples are made with construction heart redwood. The Trellis uses kiln dried Western Red Cedar. They are custom made in the shop using hand selected redwood and sanded with routed edges and classic end details. Each is designed for it's location, oriented and built for the amount of shade you prefer.

Estimating & Installation: The Pergolas Arbors or Trellises can usually be estimated during a site visit. Pergolas can also have the redwood stain applied in the shop so all the joints are sealed before assembly.

Redwood Deck

Redwood decking is naturally stable the deck boards nail down flat and stay in place resisting warping, cupping, splitting and checking. Redwood has an open celled structure and contains little or no pitch or resins which enables it to absorb and retain all types of finishes extremely well. We prefer to use construction heart grade redwood, for our exterior decking. Con-heart limits the sapwood found in lower grades which can deteriorate your deck more quickly.

Estimating & Installation: On an initial site visit a "ball park" sq footage estimate. If that is acceptable a more extensive detailed estimate is done for a small fee that is rebated on start-up. Design drafting and permiting if required would be under the set up costs and be charged as needed.

Composite Deck

Composites are a virtually maintenance free alternative to natural decking requiring only an occasional cleaning. Made from recycled materials, they are a higher up front cost but make up for that initial investment over the lifespan of the deck. We use a capped composite that is stain and fade resistant for a very high color retention that uses a hidden fastener system so you won't see those unsightly deck screws.

Estimating & Installation: On an initial site visit a "ball park" sq footage estimate. If that is acceptable a more extensive detailed estimate is done for a small fee that is rebated on start-up. Design drafting and permiting if required would be under the set up costs and be charged as needed.
