Tear Down and New Deck Build in Hampton, VA

The Deck Doctors had a recent job in Hampton Virginia for a deck removal and installation. Our specialists arrived at our customer’s home to look over the structure of the deck he wanted to tear down and ways to improve the new design. The old deck was not as old as we were expecting, but the previous contractor didn’t install the tiers properly, so it lacked stability. It was sinking on the far end because the foundation was not poured properly.

We asked the homeowner what type of deck he would like installed, and he explained that he wanted to have an excellent outdoor space that he and his family could enjoy for gatherings. We went over different styles and options in wood, then he gave us his choice of redwood. After we gave him an estimate for the complete project of removing the deck and installing a new deck, he hired us immediately.

The Deck Doctors crew arrived the following day to begin the process. Once the deck was disassembled, we removed all debris from the property. We prepped the foundation, which is the first valuable step in installing a new deck. Then we placed the main beams and added the remaining wood to complete it. This was an attached deck that was ground-level.The homeowner loved the new installation. It looked very similar to the previous one, but built to last.

New Deck Building Project in Virginia Beach

We had a recent deck installation for a Virginia Beach customer. The Deck Doctors set up a consultation with the homeowner, so we could find out exactly what type of deck layout she was interested in. Our designers arrived at the home and discussed the process, layout and materials for the project. She wanted a deck that would be very little maintenance, was functional, and was affordable. We went over a variety of options with her that would meet her needs.
Before we began installing the piers, it is important to know the depth of the frost line. Sinking the support posts to the frost line will keep it from buckling when the ground expands from freeze/thaw cycles. This deck was going to attach to the back of the home. The deck boards that we used were made from traditional cedar and the posts were pressure-washed to prevent decay. We installed the piers and anchored the posts on top, then began laying the wood planks. This deck was only going to need a few steps, not an entire staircase. After a few days, we had the deck completed. We offer our customers with many options for deck installations, which include eco-friendly products and materials.
