Decks of the Year
A couple times a year, we receive photos and stories about decks that deserve more than a month alone. The decks below have been awarded Deck of the Year for their beauty and impeccable construction.
Winner: William Parker - Deck of the Year Deck of the Year
After 12 years of restoration and upgrading our 100 plus year old house, we decided it was time for an outdoor project. While purchasing pavers for the patio portion of our backyard project, the rep told me about the Dek-Block system and gave me one of the tear off sheets. Being legally blind, I did not grasp the concept until I got home and looked at the sheet on my c.c.t.v. I then went to your website, and had the computer read me the "How to Build" instructions, and "Deckman Comments".

I began this project in the summer of 2006 using your 16X16 side pool deck plans for my 18 ft round pool. After much deliberation & disagreements with my wife, I decided to go with the composite decking after I promised her I would break up the cost of the decking by buying the material as needed & working on it on my days off.

“We really should build a deck for the new pool.” Said Karen. “No problem honey!” says I. Oh brother! What have I gotten myself into now? I don’t know the first thing about building a deck, I’m a computer engineer. Should I get one of these metal deals they sell at the pool store and take the easy way out? Nah, too small. Should I call a contractor and have them do it? Nah, too expensive. So I head to Lowe’s to get an idea of what I’m getting myself into. “Lowe” and behold, I find the answer! Dek Blocks.

My client wanted to create an outdoor room in their back yard, providing space for entertainment and relaxation. My solution was to frame the room with brick columns in the same color as the house to tie the two together, and to create a seamless flow from the house to the deck, eliminating the immediate drop that existed prior to building.
Winner: Frank & Adele Schwartz - Deck of the Year 2004
Here's our pool. We had it installed in August 2003. We got sick of the heat, and the kids are getting to the age where they can learn to swim and really enjoy the water.
The problem is, our property doesn't have a flat surface on it, save the driveway. The most ideal place to put it is here, which is a hill, albeit not a really steep one.
Winner: Erin and Grant Walsh - Deck of the Year Deck of the year, 2003
We had a great time building our deck and the Dek-Block system made it so much easier than trying to sink concrete piers into the hard Texas ground. Thanks for designing such a great product.
This is our old deck. Though we cannot say for sure, we think it was built in 1981. It was rotting and hazardous because the boards were loose and nails kept popping up.

The initial effort began... to verify if the altered plans for this deck would work and to see if we understood how this concept was to be followed. Materials were on site. One section for the perimeter deck was constructed and 4"x4" posts were cut to give a final elevation of the decked surface 1/2" below the pool's rim.
