Trex Elevations: Perfection From The Ground Up

by

Throughout the history of mankind, tools have constantly been evolving. A simple sharpened stick gave way to the spear, hammer, slingshot and bow and arrows. But things really started getting interesting when we stopped relying on nature to outfit our needs, and instead began to innovate. The discovery and harnessing of electricity may be man’s biggest achievement to date, but second prize is a no-brainer: steel. Before it, wars were fought with wooden swords, boats sank far too easily (and too often), and cars could not even be attempted. This strong and durable material has now managed to work itself into almost facet of our lives: die cast cars, towing cables, steel-toed boots, and everybody’s favorite item of steel: Superman! And while you may not be able to have The Man of Steel in your own backyard (though some have tried), you can have the next best thing: a steel-framed deck from Trex Elevations.

Steel Through The Years 

Elevations sky

I know the first question you may be asking yourself is: why would I want a steel-framed deck? And the answer to this as is simple as it is complex; because it’s better! Our ancient ancestors came to the realization that steel did a much better job of protecting them and provided the foundation for stronger structures because it was not an organic substance (such as wood). You could change the recipe, so to speak, if you wanted something harder, softer, pliable, etc…where by comparison, you get what you get with trees. That is not to say that pressure-treated lumber cannot provide the foundation for a solid deck. It can, and does, in the majority of structures adjourning our yards today. But as with anything organic, there is maintenance, aging and blemishes that appear over time. Wood can also split, warp, and shift over time…leading to an uneven decking surface, as well as structural weak points. In an effort to combat these and other issues, the good people at Trex set out to develop a system of deck framing that was stronger, more durable, non-organic and maintenance free. The result? Trex Elevations steel framing was born!

The Deck Store Leads The Way!

Broken down into four unique design qualities (who all, coincidentally happen to begin with the letter S), Trex Elevations Steel Framing truly provides the foundation for a sturdy, long-lasting decking system. The first stop on our S Parade? STRONGER. Longer joist spans and fewer posts allow for increased stability and strength, not only for the decking materials above, but also for the furniture and people above. This option is also esthetically pleasing for those with elevated deck spaces, providing a less crowded and more open concept feel below. You are also able to construct more abstract decking designs as well, as the strength of steel framing puts less strain on curved or uniquely shaped framing. Should you go with the more traditional decking template, however, you would come across S number two: STRAIGHTNESS. Because steel framing material is dimensional stable (there are no potential soft points as with wooden framing), it stays exactly where you need it to be. There is no twisting, warping, rotting or breathing…just consistency from day one onwards.

This level of consistency means that your decks dimensions are now exactly level from point to point, ensuring you even walking surfaces and weight distribution throughout. All this means that you are now SAFER, our third S in our sequence. The lack of organic material in your framing means you are now free of such inconveniences as rotting, termite feeding and fire hazards. You also no longer have to subject yourself to the chemicals used to pressure treat traditional lumber framing, something families with children and pets find particularly pleasing. Add all three of these S words together and you end up with the sum of its parts; Trex Elevations Steel Framing is SMARTER. The best part about choosing to go with Trex as your framing material of choice (other than all the great ones we listed above)? Your new Trex Elevations Steel Framing is backed by a 25-Year Limited Residential Warranty! As if having a solid, steel framed deck didn’t already give you peace of mind, Trex took your mental comfort one step further by offering to guarantee its performance for…well, essentially as long as you’ll own your home.

WHY THE DECK STORE?
The most important part of any deck project is finding the right builder to do the work. Our builders have the right set of skills, our designers share your vision, and we always can adjust project according your price range

Deck Foundation

Helical Piles - Every good thing begins with a good foundation, and your deck is no different. Strength and stability is an important thing to build upon, and that’s why we like to build our decks upon something called Helical Piles. Often known as Screw Piles, Helical Piles are quickly becoming the most efficient and cost effective way to provide your project with a safe and sturdy foundation.

Deck Framing

Metal Framing - Once you have your post properly anchored and standing strong, it’s time for phase two: framing. Available in both metal and traditional pressure treated lumber, framing is the skeleton that supports you decking for the duration of its life.

Surfacing/Decking

Low Maintenance Materials - After your foundation is set and your framing secure, it’s time for the main event of the building process: your decking of choice. This can take on many forms, from traditional pressure treated to synthetic materials (composite/pvc), but is always accompanied by one constant; experienced and skilled build teams.

Deck Accents/Details

Having a new deck is great, but what really turns you backyard space from renovation to staycation are the character pieces and accents that you choose. Things such as custom pergolas, privacy screens, shading options and custom metal artwork can go a long way in turning your outdoor space into a retreat; and we all want the kind of yard that will leave our neighbors and friends jealous and talking.
