Work with a professional installer
Installing a deck requires knowledge and skill. A professional installer can ensure that your deck is installed correctly and safely. TimberTech offers a network of professional installers to choose from, our team at Almar Building & Remodeling is a TimberTech Platinum Installer.
Properly prepare the area
Before installing your new deck, ensure that the area is properly prepared. This includes removing any old decking or structures, leveling the ground, and ensuring proper drainage. If you are working with a general contractor, they will make sure this is all set for you.
Consider the best time to install
In Massachusetts, the best time to remodel your deck is during the spring or fall when temperatures are moderate. Avoid installing during extreme temperatures or during peak summer or winter months. If you want to have your deck completed for Summer, we recommend getting the ball rolling on your project in the Winter! This will allow time to get on our schedule, order any needed materials, and pull permits.
Maintain your deck
Azek decking is low maintenance, but it still requires regular cleaning and upkeep to keep it looking its best. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and maintenance. We offer a warranty for our projects and will help you with any issue that may arise during the warranty period.
