Deck System

Knotwood decks use all metal components and fasteners for ultimate strength and durability. With a choice of two simple snap-together systems, Knotwood decks focus on effortless installation. Both systems are designed to conceal fasteners leaving a seamless wood-like finish.

Our self-mating design uses the same extrusion piece, which clips together to form a slat-like finish, resulting in less overall waste. Knotwood’s overlapping board system requires more know-how to achieve a gapless finish. All decking extrusions come in lengths of up to 18’6″, spanning large areas while maintaining strength and form.

Deck System FAQs

What is a deck system?

A deck system is a type of structure typically consisting of several components, including horizontal decks connected by staircases and ramps. It may also include other features such as railings, benches, planters, lighting fixtures, and more. Deck systems are often used in outdoor spaces to create attractive living areas for entertaining or relaxing.

Do decks have size limits?

Decks have size limits that vary depending on local building codes and the installed deck type. Generally, residential decks are limited to a maximum height of 8 feet above grade and must not exceed 200 square feet in size without a permit. Larger or higher decks may need special permits or engineering documents.

How is an aluminum deck system installed?

An aluminum deck system is usually installed by attaching the frame to the ledger board with lag screws and then fastening balusters or railings to each post. Deck boards are then attached to the framing members using nails or screws, depending on their type. Finally, accessories such as lighting fixtures and planters can be added for a finished look.

What are the differences between an aluminum deck and a wood deck?

The main difference between an aluminum deck and a wood deck is the material used. Aluminum decks are lightweight, durable, and require very little maintenance. Wood decks are typically cheaper but require more upkeep to prevent rot or warping. Additionally, aluminum decks come in various colors and styles that can add unique character to your outdoor space.

Is aluminum decking water-resistant?

Aluminum decking is water-resistant and can even be pressure washed to keep it looking its best. It is also resistant to fading and corrosion, making it a good choice for outdoor spaces exposed to harsh weather conditions.

What are the benefits of an aluminum decking system?

  • Durability – Aluminum decking systems are built to last and provide long-term durability. They are resistant to fading, corrosion, and inclement weather conditions, making them a great choice for outdoor spaces that experience regular exposure to the elements.
  • Low Maintenance – Aluminum decks require very little maintenance compared to wood or composite decking materials. All it needs is occasional cleaning with soap and water for optimal performance over time.
  • Cost-Effective – Aluminum decks cost less than many other materials on the market but still offer a high level of quality and performance that will stand up against wear and tear over time without needing significant repairs or replacements.
  • Versatile Design Options – With aluminum decking systems, you can choose from a variety of colors and styles to create an attractive look for your outdoor space that fits your individual taste or budget requirements perfectly.

What maintenance do aluminum decks require?

Aluminum decks require very little maintenance. They should be cleaned periodically with soap and water to keep them looking their best, and any loose screws or nails should be tightened if needed. It is also important to inspect the deck for signs of wear and tear, such as cracks, which can indicate that repairs may need to be done to maintain its structural integrity.
