Building a deck in a marine environment is not an easy “Do It Yourself” job. There are a multitude of construction factors that must be taken into consideration: understanding “protrusion and side setback” limits, permit requirements, water depth and design limitations, and even potential EPA and Corp of Engineer guidelines. At Naples Marine Construction we navigate the necessary laws, licensing, regulations and potential environmental limitations for you.
Over the past years, consumers’ choices for decking material have grown significantly. While marine grade wood is still an option, most of today’s decks are covered with some form of man-made decking. Options include plastic, PVC, or a composite material. While characteristics vary slightly, most provide surfaces that are slip resistant, splinter free, and resistant to weather elements, insects, mold and mildew.
In addition, all of today’s manufacturers provide 25+ year warranties and offer deck boards in a wide assortment of grains, colors and sizes.
Another popular option is IPE (pronounced ee-pay), a hard, dense South and Central American wood, considered by many to be the finest quality wood decking material available.
After you’ve selected your decking, you can even select the process for attaching the decking boards – color covered screws to match your deck boards, stainless steel screws, or Camo screws, the popular hidden screw process that offers an elegant, seamless look.
Naples Marine Construction can build your deck in an endless variety of shapes, sizes, colors, materials, and styles that will perfectly accentuate your outdoor space.
