Far From Run-of-The-Mill
By Ilyne Hayes
If you’re looking to add a fabulous outdoor space to your home that reflects your taste and wants, is built to last, easy to maintain, and will make you the envy of your neighbors, Benjamin at Greenway Construction is the man to call.
Greenway Construction is a fully licensed and insured general contractor that specializes in building decks, but not the basic, run-of-the-mill, hurriedly built, and often sub-par decks that are anathema to Benjamin Greenway. They build custom designed decks using top-quality, easy-maintenance composite decking, such as Trex, Azek, and WearDeck, all of which have 30- to 50-year manufacturers’ warranties.
“If the deck boards are going to last thirty to fifty years, then I do everything possible to make sure that the support system of the deck also lasts that long,” Benjamin stated, “which means not taking any shortcuts in the design and construction process.”
The parts that you don’t see, such as the framing, brackets, supports and footers, are where the time-consuming details and top-quality parts, such as stainless steel brackets and hurricane-rated hanger systems are employed to provide a finished product that will live up to Greenway’s extremely high standards.
“If you don’t frame the deck the right way, then the money you spent on thirty-year warrantied decking is wasted when your pressure-treated frame rots out in a few years,” Benjamin explained.
While designing the deck, Benjamin’s attention to detail assures that each board will be placed so that there will be no unsightly and possibly hazardous butt joints, and no “sliver cuts” that show bad planning, even when designing complicated patterns and inlays. Every deck board is painstakingly planned on the computer before ordering, so they know where each one will be placed ahead of time, avoiding issues that could lead to a patchy-looking installation.
Other custom design elements that help make your deck unique and spectacular, such as railings, lights, structures like pergolas, arbors, planters, and roofs are also treated with the same precise engineering and quality construction and installation as the deck. Benjamin even has a landscaper whom he has worked with and can recommend, if needed, to ensure a cohesive and stunning finished outdoor paradise that is sure to wow your neighbors.
Greenway Construction strives to make life as easy and convenient as possible for their customers during the design and build process, and to provide an amazing result that you will be proud to own. They limit the number of projects they work on at one time so that Benjamin can give each job the personalized attention to detail that a true quality-built deck or structure should have.
For the very best, top-of-the-line, and not run-of-the-mill, custom deck, Greenway Construction is the company to call.
