We are proud to announce that we were selected as the Fortress Evolutions Steel Framer of the year by Deck Specialist Magazine. This was an honor to be recognized for our work in the steel deck framing industry. We believe steel deck framing is the future of deck building.
Since the introduction of the Fortress Evolution Steel Framing System, StoneCroft Construction has adopted it as our primary framing system. The Fortress Evolution Steel Framing system includes steel support posts unlike other systems on the market. Because we only install steel frame, we have devloped the system even further working with our own engineers to solve any problems that come along. There are many common deck issues that Fortress Evolution Steel Framing solves.
Steel does not:
To see the longevity of steel in our Colorado climate, all one has to do is go look at the existing steel hangers on an old rotten wood deck. The steel hangers typically look like the day they were installed while the deck is in need of total replacement because of the rotting wood.
Due to the fact that many decks, including those on newly constructed homes, are not built with treated lumber, we often come across severely deteriorated wood framing. Some decks in need of total replacement were built as recently as 7 years ago. Please see our "Why Steel?" section to see pictures of wood rot to understand why StoneCroft Construction recommends steel over wood.
