The Best Built Decks In KC!


Hey, it’s Stephen with Monarch Exteriors KC. We’re on a deck project out in Overland park. And I wanted to talk about some of the things that we do from a framing perspective that are unique to us and the way we build decks. So you’ll notice with joy space joys facing, which is the the treated lumber that runs perpendicular.

Deck boards. These are all spaced at 12 inches on center. Most of our competition would do these every 16 inches and on composite decks. It’s really important to keep the deck boards solid. And you don’t want to feel like you’re walking on a trampoline, which can happen when the joy spacing is too far out.

And then another thing that we do to make sure that the deck feels really solid is we do In between each choice to keep the Jo straight and make sure the deck board stays straight. And we do this every four feet. So you don’t notice we’ve got one row here and then one row here as well. The industry standard is every six feet, but all the deck manufacturers recommend four to six feet.

So we do it every four feet just to be extra careful and make sure that the deck stays. Straight and looks good for as long as you own it. You’re spending a lot of money on composite deck boards. We wanna make sure the frame stays looking good. As long as the deck boards do, give us a call, check out our website.
