Jay’s Lindstrom, MN Millboard® Covered Decking Project
When it came time to replace his wood deck, Lindstrom, MN homeowner, Jay, knew that he wanted to make the switch to composite deck installation. In addition, we wanted to create a permanent overhang that would provide shade on hot summer days. Working together with Jay, our team got started on a custom deck design that would allow him to enjoy his picturesque backyard views.

A Minnesota deck installation is continuously exposed to Mother Nature. This makes it so important to choose a railing system that’s able to hold up in extreme temperatures. For Jay’s project, we suggested the use of a steel railing from Fortress® Building Products. This type of railing has multiple layers of coatings that protect it against corrosion. We suggested the use of a black railing to help frame Jay’s backyard and offer unobstructed views.
Composite Deck Installation
Although there were many types of decks for Jay to choose from, Jay ultimately decided on Millboard® in Antique Oak with Enhanced Grain. This color palette utilizes hues that emulate those found in tropical hardwood. Each board is full of tonal variation to provide an authentic wood appearance. Millboard® stands apart from other materials for several reasons. First, the composite decking is molded from real oak. This gives it an authentic wood-like appearance. In addition, Millboard® is designed not only to be slip-resistant, but to feel cooler underfoot in the summer than other types of decks. Millboard® is made from recycled materials and does not require any painting or staining to keep it looking its best.
The inclusion of a roof overhang on his deck ensured that Jay would be able to utilize the space even on the sunniest and rainiest of days. To do this, we extended the home’s roofline and installed shingles to match those already in place. A pine ceiling with a pre-finished clear coat was installed to offer a rustic appearance that complemented the deck boards. For extra sweltering days, a modern three prong black ceiling fan was installed.
Composite Deck Installation Review
After his project was completed, Jay sent left us the following online review, “This was our first experience working with Lindus and the whole process could not have gone more smoothly! Professionalism is the best word to describe every person we dealt with! I want to commend all the workers who worked on the project! We (and others) were amazed at how tidy the work area was cleaned up at the end of each day! I especially want to say how happy we were to have David M. working on the project from start to finish! We can’t say enough good things about him! His experience, attention to detail, positive attitude and friendly smile were evident every day! David is a very talented carpenter and hard worker who is a great asset to the Lindus team! I’d highly recommend Lindus for any project you have!”
