This deck was built on the same footprint of the previous deck that failed prematurely due to poor framing and no drain water mitigation. This ground level deck was set on piers set 3 feet into the ground. Rain water and snow melt was handled by a sloped gravel base that directs the water to the rear of the property.
Knollwood Construction was referred to me by other customers. In the course of our business dealings, they designed a gorgeous deck surfaced in cedar with the moisture resistant columns we needed to combat our soil conditions. Please note what set Knollwood apart from others was the graphic presentation, willingness to meet with us and modify the design to accommodate the developing project.
