Makeover Monday: Dark Cocoa Composite Deck in Sykesville, Maryland

A new deck can completely transform the overall appearance of your home and backyard. Looking for a bit of a refresh with superior craftsmanship and long-lasting composite decking, homeowners in Sykesville, Maryland reached out to Fence & Deck Connection to design their outdoor space. Project Consultant Jeff Gottleib met with our customers at their Carroll County home for a free onsite estimate appointment to discuss their vision for the existing deck space. They decided to go with beautiful TimberTech decking in one of our in stock colors! 


We first demoed and hauled away the existing wood deck, before constructing a 525 sq. ft. pressure treated wood frame with the existing footprint as the original deck. We then installed TimberTech Edge Prime+ decking in the Dark Cocoa hue, with matching seam boards and color matching screws. As one of our stock boards, TimberTech Edge Prime+ Dark Cocoa offers the simple, traditional wood look you love without the rigorous maintenance of wood. Featuring subtle color blending and a rift- and quarter-sawn straight grain pattern, the lighter weight scalloped profile premium polymer capped composite boards deliver real wood aesthetics you’ll never have to sand, stain, or seal.

White Washington-style vinyl railing with black round balusters enclose the new space, and white vinyl fascia wrap gives the new deck a clean, finished look. One set of 4′ wide steps lead down to the paver patio.

While the green painted wood deck blended in with the backyard, the new deck is a beautiful accent to the home and outdoor space. The Dark Cocoa hue really pops with the lush greenery surrounding the home!
