The Deck Installation Process
At Sunshine Contracting, we believe a happy customer is an informed customer — that’s why we take the time to fully explain to you what a given repair involves, and why it costs what it does. One of our goals during any job is to keep you up to speed on our progress, so you know everything is being performed to the highest standards possible.
When we perform a deck installation in Fairfax County, our first step is always to meet with you and discuss your wishes. We’ll create a custom design and work plan, as well as a detailed estimate. Before work can begin, we’ll notify any relevant utility companies to ensure no underground cables will be affected. Then, we tear down and remove your existing deck and begin construction.
Once work has begun, a typical deck installation will take around a week. The final build will need to be verified by a county inspector, which our team will arrange. We also perform a thorough cleanup of your yard, so you can begin enjoying your new deck as soon as it is ready. From start to finish, we strive to make the deck installation process as seamless as possible. Contact our office to begin your build today!
What Is Pressure Treating?
A wooden deck is exposed to a wide range of environmental conditions — pressure treating can help it stand up to everything northern Virginia’s wild weather can throw at it. We pressure treat all wood before construction starts to ensure it provides you with years of use.
Pressure treating involves applying a special chemical that doesn’t alter the appearance of the wood but makes it more resistant to rain, snow, humidity and bugs. We use only premium-grade southern pine on all deck installations. As a result, we are able to stand behind our work with a ten-year warranty.
