Your Cambridge Decking Options

At SSC, we aren’t interested in building average decks for homes and businesses. We ONLY work with the best industry-standard-setting materials, and we ONLY build outstanding decks. Here is a look at your options… 

TimberTech AZEK Composite Collections

AZEK decks are incredible, because, well, here’s how they put it:

“It’s more than a deck. It’s a better way to be. Building with TimberTech means the most technologically-advanced materials and the most design options for a more enjoyable, longer-lasting outdoor space.”

Their collections are the perfect alternative to building with all-natural wood or composite-lumber. For example, their Vintage Collection (available in six different gorgeous rustic colors) sports capped polymer decking that’s highly fire, fade, and rot resistant. And forget about mold, it can’t penetrate the hard outer shell. Their other material is more like a conventional composite with recycled plastic and wood fibers, but they don’t need painting or staining.  

Because we’re an AZEK Gold contractor, you get the absolute best warranty coverage the decking industry has to offer with these composite collection options as well. 

Wood Decking Options

Can we match the precision and beauty of TimberTech AZEK collections and build something truly unique and personalized? Absolutely!

  • Honey to Light Browns: We work with top quality Cedar because of its natural rot and insect resistance, as well as it’s stain acceptance. As it ages and weathers, you’ll see it slowly turn to a soft silvery gray. 
  • Light Yellow to Dark Reds: Now we’re talking beautiful mahogany wood, but specialty grades that are well-suited for our New England climate and bugs.

While pure wood decking comes with higher maintenance requirements, there’s something about it that many property owners are drawn to. 

Superior Deck Installation For Cambridge

How easy is it to tell you we go ‘far beyond building codes’ for extra protection and longevity? Real easy. Many decking contractors say that somewhere in their pitch. We mean it, though, and have the history and reputation to back it. Here are just a few ways. 

  • Proper Depth Footings: As you know, Cambridge (or the Boston area in general) and New England endure harsh winters. However, we’re called out to far too many properties to address deck footings that don’t go deep enough to go well-below the frost line. We will because we know how important it is to avoid soil settlement. 
  • Proper Footing Size: Along with footings that are too shallow, are footings that aren’t big or strong enough. As an example, when we use concrete footings for your deck, we’ll use a MINIMUM of footings that are 12’’ in diameter for stability ‘far above code’. 
  • Proper Footing Attachments: Simply sticking big posts into proper footings isn’t enough, we’re going to improve the foundational strength of your deck using j-bolts. 
  • Our ASEK Gold Status: Like any other major industry manufacturer certification, obtaining and maintaining this status takes hard work and serious results.
