Makeover Monday: Foggy Wharf Trex Deck in Howard County, Maryland

When an old wood deck is warped or rotting, it can really hinder the enjoyment of spending time outdoors. Not only does an aging deck look unsightly, it can become unsafe for homeowners and guests. Knowing that it was time for an upgrade, our clients in Howard County contacted our Maryland fence and deck installation company for our expertise!

Fence & Deck Connection Project Consultant Kevin Bullion worked with homeowners in Ellicott City to redesign their backyard deck space, upgrading their aging wood decking into beautiful long-lasting composite material. The upgrade truly brightens up the backyard and makes the home look brand new!

Before: Wood Deck in Need of an Update

We first removed and hauled away the existing deck that featured two separate entertaining areas, separated by stairs and a landing. We then built a new free-standing construction supporting approximately 394 sq. ft of Trex Enhance decking in the lovely Foggy Wharf color. Foggy Wharf is a modern neutral color option that blends salty grey hues with shades of dark silver, featuring a low-maintenance, wood-like grain pattern. This light, delicate tone is perfect for brightening up a space.

To add interest and a nice complementing tone, we installed Clam Shell decking as the seam board that runs down the middle of the deck, and as a feature board that runs along the deck’s perimeter. Clam Shell is an easy-to-match shade of medium grey, White vinyl Washington-style handrails with black round aluminum balusters safely enclose the space, and pair nicely with the chosen deck colors. A set of 10 steps lead down to the backyard space, where one can look up and admire the beauty of a newly finished Trex deck!
