This deck was a rebuild , you have before and after shots. The deck was treated pine with a solid base stain. We tore all old boards off and replaced with 5\4 cedar deck boards.We change all rails and spindles . The spindles were aluminum and posts were wrapped with 1x6 cedar boards, so it wood look beefier. We installed low voltage lighting on a couple posts , the stairs and also under the benches. We also added stairs on the west side of deck by the benches.
