Often when we think of a deck, we imagine a functional space to set our grills on. While that may be technically true, decks are much more than a barbecue area. These outdoor havens are opportunities to bring additional beauty to your property while still being functional. The materials available make it possible to get the look you want, to complement your home and enjoy outdoor living. The San Francisco area is the perfect backdrop for creating an award-winning deck from a reliable deck builder.
Award-Winning Decks from Orinda’s Choice Deck Builder
Schafer Construction builds gorgeous decks that enhance your home while giving you the functionality you seek. We have plenty of experience in the San Francisco area, where our deck building is second to none. Here are two noteworthy projects:
- Skyline: We were awarded 3rd place among 17 entrants in 2017 for a beautifully designed deck that towers 30 feet in the air over the Oakland hills. What sets this masterpiece apart from a regular deck is the Feeney clear tempered glass and Feeney Architectural DesignRail. Family and friends can breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the scenery since an ordinary wood railing does not obstruct their view of the hills. Additionally, the decking itself is waterproof, making it virtually maintenance-free. While on-site, we replaced the siding, windows, and doors to give the project a cohesive, seamless look.
- Pinehills: One submission we provided received an honorable mention. Our Pinehills project was an elegant wood deck replacement. We used Feeney Architectural CableRail to minimize the obstruction and allow guests and family to enjoy the scenery over Oakland. This rear deck stood 20 feet in the air and offered a breathtaking retreat for the residents from their hectic days. We also utilized the CableRail on the front and side decks to bring the overall look together.
These charming decks bring peace and tranquility to their owners. They are built strong and should stand the test of time and Mother Nature’s moods. Keep in mind, however, that without the proper care and maintenance, your deck will not last as long as it should. That’s where our Decks for Life Program makes the difference in an investment that lasts 20 years and one that crumbles in a few years.
At Schafer Construction, we provide ongoing periodic inspections of new decks. We check in to see:
- How your deck is weathering
- Debris collecting between deck boards
- Signs of the beginning stage of decay
- Much, much more
