Frequently asked questions are listed questions and answers.
What material do you use to build decks?
We use presure treated wood for all framing. We use a number of decking and railing materials. From #1 grade pressure treated decking, AZEK cellular PVC decking or PVC coated composite we have used it all.
Are all of the pictures on your website your work?
Do you use sub-contractors to build your decks?
No. All decks and screened porches are built by Elam Contracting employees.
Are you experienced with all types of decking and railings?
Yes. We are experts and have built over 500 decks and porches with 70% of those being alternative decking and railing.
Do I need to get a permit?
All decks and porches need building permits. We supply all permits and HOA paper work.
Can you build a deck in the winter?
Yes. We build decks and porches all year round. The only thing that slows us down is precipitation and arctic cold temperatures.
What is your warranty?
Our warranty is 5 years. Most composite decking and railing systems have 10 to lifetime warrantees.
