Stability

Traditional framing can split, warp and shift over time, leading to an uneven surface in the deck boards above. Steel deck frames are precision engineered to ensure a refined, flat surface for the life of the deck. They are also significantly more resilient to weather, moisture, time and pest deterioration.

Design Flexibility

Steel beams have the ability to be bent and shaped to allow for everything from curves and angled corners to extended cantilevers. They are more lightweight than wood and can span up to 15 ft. (vs. 10 ft. for wood), resulting in the need for fewer posts and greater flexibility in post placement. This creates less obstructed views and more open space below the deck for storage or even additional outdoor living area.

Safety

A substructure is the platform that will support your deck—not to mention your friends, family and loved ones—for decades of outdoor living activities. Steel offers superior strength and longevity, is non-combustible, termite-proof, and free of pressure-treated chemicals.

Eco-friendly

Steel deck frames are made from recycled materials, and can be recycled themselves.
