The deck featured here is a basic composite deck. Our client chose Timbertech Reliaboard as their decking with pressure treated joists. This allowed us to build an attractive, low maintenance deck without the high costs that typically come with composite decks. The deck was attached to the house which required a building permit from the City of Fort Collins building department. The deck platform was less than 30″ above grade. This resulted in no deck railing requirement which saved additional costs. The price of this composite deck was relatively inexpensive due to the basic design and economic materials that were used.
