Plan the Dimensions

After measuring the size of the yard, Adam helps center the location of the deck using strings tied to wood stakes. Continually measure and adjust the stakes until the strings form a square and level representation of the deck dimensions

Mark the Ground

Next, using bright paint and tiny orange flags, they mark the bottom to represent the deck's four corners and midpoints. These markings indicate the placement of the deck's eight concrete support posts, called caissons.

Break Ground

Temporarily remove the stakes and string then use an influence auger to quickly bore 15-inch holes at the marked locations. Remove any remaining dirt using a posthole digger

Form the Concrete

If the yard slopes slightly faraway from the house, the lower holes need extra height to succeed in the extent string. To remedy this, cut a cardboard caisson tube to length and rest the segments on the lower holes. These now serve as concrete forms

Pour Concrete

After mixing a batch of concrete, shovel it into the holes and cut off the surplus employing a spare wood stake. Before allowing the concrete to cure for 48 hours, embed a J-bolt into each caisson. Eventually, this will help tie down the deck.

Start the Deck Frame

Start by forming the perimeter and a center beam. After cutting several boards to length, screw treated lumber and redwood together to make double-thick perimeter boards. Because the middle beam remains hidden, only use pressure-treated lumber. Nail on steel bracket ties to give lateral support and make both boards flush using an electric planer

Place the Main Boards

Keeping the more attractive redwood side out, fit the four perimeter boards onto anchor plates assail the caissons . Later, these anchors help permanently tie the deck down. With the most boards in situ , secure them together by nailing on corner brackets

Finish the Frame

With the perimeter complete, round out the frame by installing treated joists. After installing steel joist hangers at 16-inch intervals, set within the joists and nail them in.

Install Decking Material

Having attached all the joists, land up the deck by installing the decking material. To begin installation, start by squaring up the first piece of composite to the deck and attaching it to the underlying joists with composite decking screws. Continue screwing down the decking ensuring to permit for a 1/4" gap between each plank. Attach several rows and stagger the cut seams for structural and aesthetic value

Complete the Deck

To complete the deck, permanently fasten the wood portions to the caissons by bolting down the anchor brackets and driving in nails through the perimeter
