Deck Remodel by Straitline Features Innovative Design and Spectacular Lighting


This Greenwood Village, Colorado project was a complete facelift.  The existing deck consisted of boring square lines and rotting floor joists.  The small staircase was poorly positioned and the grill resided in a corner against the railing.

Our remodel consisted of new composite Moistureshield decking throughout and a new radius curve between pillars.  The new portion of the curve is supported using custom timber post and beam work, complemented by matching knee braces.  The stairs were expanded and reshaped for better and more comfortable use.  The existing grill was replaced with a new built-in Wolf 30” cooktop set in a custom leathered finish granite countertop.  Below the grill sits a matching Wolf warming drawer and to the side, storage doors.  Supporting the grill area is more custom timber work.  The underside of the deck was outfitted with a Colorado Deck Drain Experts water removal system, allowing dry space below, even in the heaviest of rains.

What really set this deck apart was the lighting.  Using DEKOR™ riser lights paired with DEKOR™ post caps, ample soft light is provided.  In the late evening, this project shines, thanks to DEKOR™ lighting!
