StoneCroft Construction recommends Fortress Evolutions Steel Framing or Trex Elevations Steel Framing. Steel does not warp, rot or crack like 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 find out why StoneCroft Construction recommends steel over wood.
