  1. I hardly create responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here Downloadable Plans Archives – Designers and Builders of
    Pergolas, Decks and Fences. And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be just me or does it look like a few of these remarks look like left by brain dead people?

    😛 And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I’d like to
    follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of
    the complete urls of all your public pages like your twitter
    feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  2. Outstanding post, you have pointed out some excellent details, I as
    well believe this is a very great website.

  3. After reading the entire article I’m still not sure what the best decking material to use. Lawrence what material did you use on your deck?

    • Hi Gene– I am redoing my decks this year from Cedar to a high-end PVC. Likely Wolf Home Products or Gossen. If the price is not a concern, (I have 1200 sq’ to do), Mirrite is gorgeous. IN my case another concern is the capping. Since my dog is 120 lbs and has claws like a black bear, it needs to be a hard surface. After seeing Gossen withstand foot traffic throughout the spring national show in Toronto this spring, it is now on the list. I will be staying away from HDPE composites that contain wood– Puckers and swelling are not on my wish list.

  4. I would like to download these plans. On the site page it says they are out of stock. I will be happy to download them.

    • Hi Pauline– Sorry, it didn’t tag the project when you commented. Do you know the product ID you are looking at?

  5. Nice article with an in-depth explanation of all points. Regardless, I am quite on the same page as Gene Riesebeck here. Which material would be the best, according to you?

    • Hi [email protected] — If you are in a budget real estate market wood may be the best choice– use a marine grade finish. If homes are more pricy– you may get the investment back and then some going with a high-end PVC deck. The design and quality of build is really more important than the materials in most cases. An ugly or uninspired deck is always worth much less!

  6. Wonderful items from you, man. I understand your stuff prior to and you are just too excellent.
    I actually like what you have bought here, really like
    what you’re stating and the best way to which you are saying it.
    You are making it entertaining and you still care for to stay it smart.
    I can’t wait to read far more from you. This is really a great website.

  7. For the west coast of Florida in the Tampa area, what would be the best product. Have to deal with heat and sun more than extreme temperature changes. There is one made in Ocala and one made in Georgia that are pvc boards. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Mary– I would give Wolf Home Products a try ttp:// . They have lighter solid colors that will work well with the local architecture and throw less heat than a darker finish. It is also about the warranty– Wolf offers 5 years to cover installation as long as you have a Wolf Pro Build it for you. Most of the other companies only supply replacement decking and you have to pay a builder to replace it.

    • Some composite decking is– it really depends on the brand. Some of the first generation composites were really slippery. Trex has a durable coating, but can also be slippery. There is a new brand that I have used a few times that I would call non-slip. Check out Azek and Wolf are both pretty good that way as well.

  8. I would like to order the P012 but despite the fact that I added it to the cart I am not able to see it an complete the order.

    • Working on it Luc! I was able to recreate the issue on my cell phone…but my computer worked fine, chrome browser. Popup blocker enabled.

    • Cynthia, that depends on where you live and what materials you want it made of. If you fill out the get a quote sheet with the name of the product, we can answer your question directly. I can tell you that it isn’t a $500 garden arbor– that is outdoor sculpture.

  9. The designs you have shown in this article are great! I work in the gardening industry and have installed so many outdoor structures like decks and pergolas. This article has some new ideas and a lot of knowledge about upcoming trends. I hope to incorporate some of these designs into my work soon.
