Expedited Deck Remodel for a Media, PA Family


A blue-collar family in Media, PA, known for their love of entertaining, approached us at S&S Remodeling Contractors with a time-sensitive request. They needed a new deck installed before their “Mid Summer” party. With multiple kids and frequent gatherings, they required a durable and attractive outdoor space that could withstand heavy use.

Initial Consultation and Planning

During the initial consultation, the family emphasized their need for a sturdy, low-maintenance deck that could handle the wear and tear of their active lifestyle. Given their requirements, we recommended TimberTech Vintage PVC Decking, known for its premium quality, exceptional durability, and 50-year warranty. The family agreed that this was the best choice for their needs.

Design and Material Selection

We collaborated closely with the family to design a deck that would seamlessly integrate with their home’s exterior. They wanted a space that was not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing. To enhance the deck’s usability during evening gatherings, we included ambient lighting in the design. This would provide both practical illumination and a warm, inviting atmosphere.

Project Execution

With the “Mid Summer” party date fast approaching, we expedited the project schedule to ensure timely completion. Here’s a step-by-step overview of the construction process:

  1. Preparation and Demolition
    • We began by dismantling the old deck and preparing the site for the new installation. This involved leveling the ground and ensuring a stable foundation.
  2. Framework and Foundation
    • Constructing a sturdy framework was crucial, given the high quality of the TimberTech materials. We used pressure-treated lumber for the support structure, ensuring long-term stability and strength.
  3. Decking Installation
    • The installation of the TimberTech Vintage PVC Decking was carried out with precision. The material’s resilience and aesthetic appeal were key considerations. Each plank was carefully laid to achieve a seamless finish, highlighting the natural look and texture of the decking.
  4. Lighting Installation
    • To create the desired ambiance, we installed lighting around the perimeter of the deck. The lighting was positioned to enhance visibility without overwhelming the space, providing a cozy and inviting atmosphere for evening gatherings.

Completion and Outcome

We completed the project on schedule, just in time for the family’s “Mid Summer” party. The new deck not only met but exceeded their expectations. The TimberTech Vintage PVC Decking offered the perfect combination of durability and elegance, while the integrated lighting added a sophisticated touch to their outdoor space.

Family’s Feedback

The family was delighted with the transformation. They particularly appreciated the quick turnaround and the quality of the workmanship. The new deck provided a perfect venue for their gatherings, accommodating their active lifestyle and enhancing their home’s exterior.
