Thompson Construction, Inc. is a Diamond Certified contractor licensed in California with more than 40 years serving residential clients in Sonoma, Marin, and Lake Counties. Whether you’re looking to repair an existing deck or want to build something entirely new, we have the carpentry and design skills to craft a beautiful, sturdy, and long-lasting deck for the home of your dreams.
Expand your home’s liveable space for entertaining or to simply enjoy everything that nature has to offer. Whether your deck is single- or multi-level, at Thompson Construction, Inc., we can help you make the most of your outdoor living space. We encourage you to have an idea of the size or square footage you would like, and from there, you can choose the materials that suit your needs, aesthetic, and price point — and we are happy to make recommendations if you need an expert opinion. We often construct our decks using redwood or Trex composite decking.
Redwood decks offer traditional beauty, blend well into their natural environments, and can be stained or sealed to withstand the test of time. To ensure their longevity, redwood decks should be treated at regular intervals, depending upon their exposure to sunlight. Trex composite decking is made from 95% recycled and reclaimed materials, making it an eco-friendly, sustainable option for your deck. Additionally, Trex decking requires no maintenance and offers fade-resistant warranties.
Interested in additional personalizations or upgrades? You can incorporate built-in benches or select 2” x 6” or 2” x 10” top caps on your handrails to allow space for setting down drinks or placing plants. From there, opt for 2” x 2” pickets between deck posts for a traditional style, or choose cable railing or hog wire railing for a more modern look that does not obstruct your natural views. You can choose to add picture frame edges around your decking for a fresh design that adds visual interest and ensures a smooth transition from one section of the deck to the next. You can also choose to have the decking laid at a 45-degree angle for more visual interest. Additionally, you can add lighting on handrails and stairs. When it comes to the deck’s installation, consider upgrading by opting to use hidden fasteners, which are more aesthetically pleasing and prevent water from collecting in them. Finally, you have the option of adding an awning or pergola to provide shade and add visual appeal.
