A Balcony Deck Built to Last

Durable finish materials hide strong framing connections in a graceful design that overlooks the ocean

When builder Michael Maines set out to build a balcony deck in Portland, Maine, he needed to make it strong enough to withstand the power of hurricanes and nor'easters. By using smart framing details and strong steel connectors, and planning the frame to promote drying, Maines and his crew crafted a deck that looks great and will be around for years to come.
