TEAK DECKS IN MIAMI

Teak Deck

You got to know

This wood is unaffected by insects, fungus, acids or alkalis, making it ideal for decks.

In order to be Environmentally Friendly and ensure an effective construction, Deck Builders Miami will be using standard board lengths to reduce the amount of wasted wood.

In order to offer a complete service for your deck construction, Deck Builders Miami builds ADA Wood Ramps. Wood Ramps are essential for wheelchair users if elevators or lifts are not available to connect different levels any part of an accessible way.

They are large trees, growing to 30-40 m (90-120 ft.) Teak is a yellowish brown timber with good grains and texture. It is used in the manufacture of outdoors such a wood deck. Teak's natural oil makes it useful in exposed locations, and is termite and pest resistant. Teak is durable even when not treated with oil or varnish.

Installation

We use saw blades with 16 teeth to reduce friction when cutting, and the blade will stay sharp longer.  When a miter saw is used, 12” saws with 32 teeth are recommended.

If boards are not grooved pre-drilling is necessary to avoid wood splitting and screw breakage. Nail guns will cause the wood to split either after impact or when the wood loses moisture. Cobalt alloy drill bits are the most effective and longest lasting when drilling into Ipe.

Stainless Steel fasteners are imperative when fastening Teak.

Pressure treated wood is use for the framing. It provides long-term protection from rot, decay and termites without the use of any EPA-listed hazardous chemicals.

Teak offers:

*  Little maintenance needed
* A golden color, with dark markings and a straight grain
* A non-skid surface, thanks to a coarse texture that is smooth to the touch, with virtually no raised grain.
