The projects from DeckRemodelers.com are, as always, the result of innovative designs and passionate execution.

DeckRemodelers.com was awarded “2011 NJ Best Wood Deck under 500 square foot” The award was accepted by Sean McAleer the owner of Deckremodelers.com. The lead carpenter working on the winning project Frank Holmberg was also present to receive the award. Staff members contributing to the effort were all in attendance. The deck, constructed in cedar, is located in Tenafly NJ. It has three levels, a hot tub, 2 sets of cascading stairs and custom privacy walls. This deck was also selected as the National 2nd place winner, in October, at the NADRA National Competition held in Chicago.
The outdoor space, on this deck, is a stunning source for private relaxation and romance located only a few miles from NYC. The upper level offers a magnificent view as well as convenience to the kitchen while dining. Mid level provides for sunning and lounging offering a little more privacy while still maintaining the view. The lower hot tub level sits at 18 inches, or seat height above the adjacent level so access is ergonomic and as easy as sitting on a chair before sliding into the tub. This lowest level with its built in dressing screen was designed for maximum privacy from the neighbors while being oriented toward the setting sun and the night sky.
