DIY Customer Builds Low Deck Like a Pro on Postech Screw Piles

Recently we received a call from a customer, Patrick, looking to rebuild a deck.  The deck was originally built, like many low decks, on cement pads and posts that supported joists.  The deck served it’s purpose for approx. 5 years but gradually lost it’s shape and required an overhaul.


Determined to rebuild a solid deck that would last for many years to come, Patrick came across Postech Screw Piles and decided to give us a call.  We consulted with him regarding the best practice of either using a flush beam or trenched beam design.  Preferring the ever solid and great looking joists on top of beam design, Patrick opted to trench and use void form as we suggested.  Below is a series of pictures which show just how a beam can be set low the ground without the fear that the ground will heave and push up on the underside.






If you are building a low deck (under 2ft from ground to underside of joists) then you don’t have to build on piles and you have the choice to build on concrete pads / deck blocks.  But, if you’re like Patrick and want a rock solid deck that will last for years and years without any movement, then consider building Postech Winnipeg Screw Piles; you won’t be sorry you built on our guaranteed 10.5foot premium quality screw piles!
