AZEK® Decking for a Deck Project on a Solid Footing

Posted by Ron on Apr 29, 2015 12:26:11 PM
What's underfoot matters, and it's always best when you're standing on something solid and durable. Having a "solid footing" is another way of saying the details are being taken care of and unexpected surprises will not happen. This idea is true both metaphorically, and in the case of deck surfaces, literally. AZEK decking is an excellent way to have your decking "on a solid footing": it's durable, easy to maintain, and attractive.

Techno Metal Post – Unique Foundation Solutions

Posted by Tim on Jul 25, 2014 4:00:01 PM
Sometimes building a solid foundation can be harder than it looks. Just ask Bonanno Pisano (architect of The Leaning Tower of Pisa), Vespasian (founder of the Roman Colosseum), or Cover Girl (makers of some pretty subpar makeup products). Often, what you’re making is not as important as what it’s made of, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the world of outdoor renovation. Specifically, when it comes to Do-It-Yourself projects there are specific concerns that you will face along the way, whether you consider yourself a professional or not. And one of the key things you need to ensure for a successful building process is a sturdy foundation. Whether your project is a cottage, home extension, deck, or even something as small as a clothing line in your own backyard, having a reliable foundation to start from is the most important step.
Stability Means Everything

With that in mind, the next generation of structural integrity providers has arrived: 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. Helical Piles are essentially a giant metal screw, installed by a professional technician using proprietary hydraulic machinery. The depth of the screw is determined by the desired bearing capacity, with the ability to support up to 50,000 pounds per pile. These Helical Piles not only guarantee that your project is supported by a solid base, they are also cost effective and provide shorter project times due to the ease of installation. This method of creating a foundation also helps reduce environmental impact generally seen during most construction methods, (by reducing soil displacement), which results is less transportation for excess soil, allowing for easy removal when the foundation is no longer needed. It literally is reducing our carbon footprint one step at a time!
