Male: Frequent entertainer Jane McCarty has out grown her indoor party space so we’re giving her an expansive out door party room complete with dining and lounging clusters.
Jane: I have a small house so it’s nice to have a large deck.
Male: Our walls maybe the open air, any good add-on’s start with a solid foundation and ours is just about done. We’ve reinforce the joists and chosen a floor material that last for a life time of parts. With the material delivered, we start bring it over to our jobsite. This is going to be a perfect product for Jane no maintenance. If something gets stained you just get a deck cleaner and clean it off.
When the lifting gets too heavy…
Male: No stress on my face.
Male: We get a helping hand from Jane’s nephew, niece and grand niece.
Male: You’re the back bone Emma. Thanks Emma.
Male: You go girl.
Female: Have been laying my thoughts.
Male: Each decking board is 20 feet long so we don't have a lot of cuts but the once we do have should be staggered with an 8-inch gap both length and width wise. Composite decking expands more than wood.
Male: So we’re using stainless steel screws here.
Male: They must be pretty expensive?
Male: They are but they guarantee they last for a long time.
Male: We screwed directly into the joist and burry the head of the screw. The composite material of the decking mushrooms around the screw and once hammered in masses it.
Male: Here you go.
Jane: Oh my God I'm on something, this isn’t my deck. Oh my God, Oh my God! I have a dinning area.
Male: What do you think? Think your going to use it.
