Tom & Marian’s TimberTech AZEK® Deck Installation in Somerset, WI

At Lindus Construction, we’re pleased to have served over 100,000 happy homeowners over the past 40+ years.  We consider it a point of pride when customers are so pleased with the first project that we complete for them that they opt to continue to contact us for future work as the need arises.  Such was the case with Tom and Marian from Somerset, Wisconsin.  A few years back, our team had gotten to know the couple while completing a kitchen renovation for them that included new countertops, a backsplash, and flooring.

Here’s what the home’s preexisting deck looked like.

Custom Deck Design

Now, the couple was interested in discussing options for the replacement of their 20-year-old cedar deck.  They asked our deck installers for guidance on aesthetically pleasing maintenance-free decking and railing materials in colors that would be enjoyed for years to come.  They were receptive to design suggestions and were particularly interested in our expert opinion on reconfiguring the stairway so that it went straight down, rather than having a landing in the middle.  Here’s a summary of the decking components our craftsmen utilized to create a deck that will be a point of pride at Tom & Marian’s home for years to come.

Deck Building & Installation

Low Maintenance TimberTech® AZEK® Decking Material:

The deck boards frame, stairs, and skirting were all made by TimberTech AZEK® and are from their Vintage Collection®.  The capped polymer boards are offered in opulent, yet earthy hues.  The astute observer will notice the low-gloss finish contains ethereal wire brush marks to promote a genuine wood look.  TimberTech® AZEK® decking wins high marks with homeowners and deck builders alike because it holds up well to scratching and denting.  In the summer months, Tom & Marian will appreciate that their new deck is substantially cooler to the touch than many other options in the product class.  In the winter months, the deck has been reported to be nearly half as slippery as similar brands.  While their previous wood deck was susceptible to mold and discoloration, the proprietary composition of TimberTech AZEK® ensures these issues are a thing of the past.

Concrete Deck Footings:

In Western Wisconsin, it’s important to use deck footings that can maintain their stronghold though the freeze/thaw cycle.  Deck footings also need to compensate for moist soil varieties.  This is why we suggested the use of Diamond Pier® footings on Tom & Marian’s deck.  Diamond Pier® deck footings have a unique look and contain a concrete diamond on top of the deck with a pin jack hammered into the ground, providing a tripod like appearance.

Steel Deck Railing:

In the realm of deck maintenance, one of the most tedious jobs is staining deck railings.  Understanding this, Tom & Marion appreciated our suggestion of the installation of a Fortress® steel railing.  They are manufactured using proprietary coating technology to ensure the product will last a lifetime, forgoing the worry of rust or corrosion.

Somerset, WI Deck Installation Review:

After the Somerset, WI deck installation was completed, the couple sent the following email to the head of our decking department to compliment the craftsmen involved in the conceptualization and building of their dream deck.

Luke Panek worked with us to develop a design that he promised “Would really please us”.  Luke was right- we are very pleased with every aspect of our new deck.  The materials, colors of the decking and railing, and overall design, including a reconfigured stairway, all enhance our property and will allow us to continue to enjoy our home.

The crew you assigned to our project was ideal.  Dave was the leader and was assisted by Leo for most of the construction.  Noah and Tristen were occasional workers.   Dave set the tone for this industrious crew.  Everyone knew what to do, when to do it, and how to do it.  We really appreciated how much respect they showed for us and our property.  Dave checked with us often and sought our approval whenever he thought it was appropriate. His attention to detail was obvious including how neat and tidy our property was left at the conclusion of the project. It was great having this crew at our home.  They are a credit to Lindus Construction.

Cory, we appreciated how you and the others made the effort to see our project during construction. 

Very Satisfied Lindus Clients,

Tom and Marian

Reviews from Somerset, WI Homeowners:

"Lindus Construction replaced our windows about 4 years ago and we just love the windows but more so their attention to details is outstanding. They walked us through the process and kept in touch with us throughout the installation process. They cleaned up after themselves as if they hadn't even been there. They also contacted us after the installation also they would answers questions anytime we called them after the installation promptly."

"Randall Bowman and an attic insulation crew attended to my Somerset, WI condo in Oct. 2023.  They were ahead of schedule, very conscientious about not causing any damage or mess in the house. Very conscientious about not blocking traffic for my condo development neighbors. And, they were very efficient-- finishing earlier than they estimated. I would highly recommend Lindus Construction and the two insulation company they contract with."

“When we heard about a free heat map analysis, we decided to have one done on our attic.  Brandon came out and suggested we could improve our home’s energy efficiency by installing Thermax boxes sealed to our drywall, along with more insulation.  Randall contacted us to complete our project and it was done in a timely manner.  They did a nice job and exhibited expert workmanship.  The team was polite, and we are very pleased with the result.  In the past, Lindus has also completed a kitchen renovation and the installation of a new deck.  They are top-notch and hire qualified people.”

"Our 20 year-old cedar deck needed to be replaced.  We were unsure of what materials would be best and the old stairway design was not ideal.  Luke Panek worked with us to develop a design that he promised "Would really please us".  Luke was right- we are very pleased with every aspect of our new deck.  The materials, colors of the decking and railing, and overall design, including a reconfigured stairway, all enhance our property and will allow us to continue to enjoy our home."

"We hired Lindus to replace several windows in our home with the SeasonGuard windows. By far we made the correct choice. Both of the windows face the north west and have really proven it was the correct choice. Even on several sub zero mornings the interior glass was still not cold. Additionally, their installation techniques will prove to keep out any infiltration or moisture or air leakage. They will definitely be replacing the rest of my windows and doors in the near future."
