I have just finished a beautiful second story 400 sq/ft stained cedar deck in North Vancouver. The scope of work included: Tearing down the old rotten deck, design and planning of a new extended deck with 3 new footings, 9 6×6 posts and 4 beams. The surface was waterproofed with a UV rated torch on, and then finished with a raised 5/4 x 6 cedar decking. The railings, posts, stairs and fachia are all stained cedar. My client was ecstatic with the end result. Here are some pictures of the before, during, and after construction phases.
