Trex and composite deck building specialists in Waukesha, Oconomowoc, and Delafield
What sets up apart from any other deck contractor in Oconomowoc or Waukesha?
Hiring a contractor can be a daunting task for any homeowner, especially if it isn’t your first time. It’s no secret that the industry as a whole has a less than perfect reputation. Platinum Decking knows this, through both personal and professional experience, our goal is to be on our client’s team. Taking on a new project can be.. well, a project. Start to finish, we believe it should be a fun and exciting experience for you. As for the rest, leave it to us.
Starting with your initial estimate, detail, and designing an outdoor space you’ll love to go hand in hand. We believe it is most important that you are a part of the process, and that the end result is one we created together. A Trex deck is something that is meant to last forever – so it’s got to be exactly what you want!
Before creating a design, one of our design team specialists will come out in person to meet you, discuss your vision for space, and work off of that starting point. Every yard and every home is different and unique; seeing full scale in person will dictate the connection point between what we want, and what we’re able to do. Based on your unique locations building codes, it’s our job to know the building guidelines and use those details to design a deck that fits your vision, but can also be made possible.
After measuring out and drawing up a rough design you’re happy with, then comes the fun part. Bringing out samples of all lines and options of composite materials to choose from is something we find critical for your confidence in the project. Our process is meant to give you a full understanding of the material differences, benefits, and provide a sense of confidence in your decision.
Once we’ve got the design, decking colors, and railing figured out, we’ll take all of that back to the drawing board and create an official estimate for you. To go along with a write scope of work, we’ll include a sketch or 3D rendering model of your new deck. After finalizing things and getting a spot lined up in our schedule, this will give you a good look at the outdoor living space you can look forward to! Our attention to detail, going above and beyond, and enthusiasm behind each of our projects is what earned us the title of becoming your #1 local deck builder.

Platinum Quality Deck Building Materials
Building a deck space with composite and PVC materials in the Midwest just makes sense; for your wallet and your sanity. Let’s face it, we don’t have the most consistent climate! We’ve all heard the joke.. Sweatshirt for the morning, shorts for the afternoon, and winter jacket for the evening. If we’re being honest, building an outdoor deck with wood in the midwest is the actual joke. No matter the level of upkeep, the quality of stain, sealant, or paint, it just doesn’t last. We believe that the smartest financial investment when building a new deck is to use only maintenance-free materials.
The main reason for this is the extreme fluctuation in weather so frequently. When the air cools and heats up, the fibers in your wood boards expand and contract with that change. Each time this happens, the wood fibers weaken, pushing out any material they’ve previously soaked in. When the stain, sealant, or paint is pushed out, that void left over is filled in with moisture; woods’ worst enemy. Over a short period of time, that consistent expansion and contraction of the wood cause rot and the breakdown of the board, making each coat you apply less and less effective to preserve the wood. Depending on a number of maintenance factors, you’re looking at an average of 2-3 years of things looking good before the inevitable board replacement begins.
Committed to building with only the best and most reputable materials, to us, it comes down to Trex composite and Azek PVC. Not only do they make deck maintenance a thing of the past, but you’re protected from fading, staining, and discoloration for 25-50 years!
Trex composite provides 4 lines of composite ranging in price to fit any budget and over 20 color options to choose from. Colors range from your more modern grays to traditional browns that mimic the look of actual stained wood. Read more about each of the Trex decking lines here.
TimberTech Azek PVC decking varies slightly from composite, in that it is made up of 100% plastic, with no wood fiber. Giving you a truly forever option, Azek has 2 lines and 9 color options to choose from, both giving contrast to Trex’s look. With a little less of the wood grain stamp texture on each board, Azek has a more modern feel that is unique to the board. To dig deeper into the benefits of Azek decking for your project, look here.
We believe both Trex and Azek are the Platinum-level decking materials and the best options to consider for your new deck space.
AZEK Decking- Oconomowoc
AZEK decking is not a composite material like Trex. Rather, AZEK is made of 100% plastic PVC. This gives a very different look than a Trex composite board but does have some unique benefits and color options.
Trex Decking- Waukesha
Platinum Decking is a Trex Pro Platinum Builder. As one of the largest Trex deck builders in the country, we have built over 200 Trex decks in the past 2 years. Trex is our specialty at Platinum Decking.
TimberTech Decking- Delafield
Like Trex, TimberTech decking is a composite board. TimberTech composite decking’s claim to fame is their “4 sided” cap vs a Trex board that is capped on 3 sides. TimberTech also has a variety of different colors.
