Does my deck come with a warranty?

Beyond the manufactures warranty, which is often a 25 year no fade no stain warranty, you'll also receive a one year structural warranty.

 

Are composite decks really NO maintenance?

Non wood decks require an occasional light power washing to remove dust, dirt, and pollen.

 

Are building permits required?

Any new deck over 30" tall will require a permit and engineer approved blueprints.

 

Do you build wood decks?

We build multiple cedar decks each year. Using hardwoods however is something LeBlanc Decks prefers not to install IE: Mahogany, Tiger Wood, IPE, Iron Wood, etc. While Central Oregon is a dry climate with consistently changing temperatures, most hardwoods are native to regions that are consistently warm and humid. Consequently hardwoods often do not perform well in Central Oregon.

 

Are there different types of composite decking products?

Yes. There are many different manufactures of composite decking products. Each with multiple tiers of products at different price points.

 

Which composite decking products does LeBlanc Decks prefer?

While we have experience building with most reputable products on the market today, LeBlanc Decks prefers to build using Trex, Azek, TimberTech, Deckorators and Wolf products. In our opinion the decking components sold by these companies outperform the other competitors, have a proven record of outstanding customer satisfaction, and offer both a highly attractive and wide range of product options at all price-points.

 

Do you build decks in the winter?

We build year round. A decks concrete footings however need to be installed while temperatures are above freezing. Once the footings are installed, and assuming there is not an accumulation of snow, we are able to build.
