All Your Need To Know About Deck Building

You can choose from a wide array of deck types and styles, including two-story decks, ground-level decks, elevated decks, floating decks, pool decks, and more. When it comes to framing, we use top-quality grade #1 pressure-treated wood for added strength and longevity.

As for the decking surface, you have the freedom to pick any material that suits your preferences and fits your budget. If you’re on a budget, we recommend pressure-treated wood floorboards. For those seeking hassle-free maintenance, our composite decking option is the way to go, offering you the joy of spending time on your deck without the worry of constant upkeep.

In Durham and Orange Counties, NC, the deck and the other impervious surfaces (the house itself, the driveway, walkway, porch, etc.) need to be within 20% of the total allowed impervious surfaces on your property. We’ll have a land surveyor to make sure we’re within that limit. Most importantly, you want to make sure the deck is not blocking windows or doors. Aside from this, you can get as large of a deck as you want.

Here at Firefum Construction, we charge our deck-building projects by square foot. Hence, a 200-square-foot, basic pressure-treated deck would cost around $30k. Add to it the common drink rails, lighting, and under decking solutions, and the cost can rise up to $40k and more.

A 200-square-foot basic composite deck would be in the range of $40k. If you want the popular upgrades (drink rails, lighting, under decking solutions, an awning, drainage system, etc.), budget an extra $10k to $20k.

You’ll get the manufacturer’s warranty on materials and our 5-year workmanship warranty along with it. If there’s even a floorboard that we’ve replaced and it’s causing any issues, we’ll come right up and fix it for you. With that being said, know that we cannot warranty if the client provides his own materials.

Overall the best material is composite. This modern decking material doesn’t rot, doesn’t need to be restained, and it’s made of up to 95% recycled materials. Brands like Trex and TimberTech offer a 25-year limited residential fade and stain warranty for their boards, guaranteeing you that the composite’s color will remain the same throughout its lifespan.

Ultimately, composite decking is more of an investment by saving you money on maintenance. Although wood decks are less expensive upfront, their ongoing maintenance costs will pile up pretty quickly.

Some of the most popular deck upgrades we’ve seen our clients choose are drink rails, sitting area or built-in benches, privacy walls, horizontal decking enclosures for underdeck storage (great place to stash your lawn mower), deck lighting, deck drainage, and much more!

Probably the most sought-after upgrade for our clients (and one of our specialty) are the removable screens. Pollen is one of the most common triggers of seasonal allergies, and in March, it’s all over the houses here in Durham County. Our removable screens make it easy for you to get rid of it and any pesky bugs and enjoy your time outdoors.

Unless you’re building a deck with a metal frame, no. Grade #1 pressure-treated wood rated with ground contact is one of the best and most affordable materials for deck framing on the market. Pressure-treated wood can withstand snow, rain, and sun much better than other materials.

First of all, we’ll talk over the phone about your upcoming project and then schedule an on-site visit to see the actual scope of work. Once we fully understand your needs, desire, wants, and preferences, we’ll draw some deck plans or have you choose between some standard deck layouts – we’ll need this to get the building plans.

In the pre-construction phase, we offer you a set of services that make everything go smooth, like engineer drawings, land surveys for impervious surface calculations, 2D designs, and thorough inspections of your property. After we get the plans approved by the local authority, we get to work according to our schedule.

You don’t have to do anything, and it’s not even necessary for you to be on the work site. You can be on vacation and come back to see your deck up and running. Our goal is to build it right the first time and interfere as little as possible with your daily tasks.

Karen Halpert


Excellent job restaining my deck and installing new screens. They were timely and kept a clean job site.

They communicated clearly on when they would start and the job was completed efficiently.

Would highly recommend.


Leslie Simon


Highly recommend! We’ve used Fiferum for 3 jobs and have been highly satisfied with their work on each project. My husband is very sensitive to drywall dust and the crew kept this in mind spending extra time to clean up.

They are very timely and responsive with email communication which is a huge plus. We will definitely call on them again for future work.
