What can I do to protect my new wood deck during the winter and summer?
what kinda wood decking is that ?
This is a beautiful piece of work, wonderful view too. Good job deck builders minneapolis
It is wise to have a protective sealant brushed on your wood before the harsh winter/summer set in. If your deck gets a lot of sun exposure, consider using a wood sealant that has a UV protection agents inside
sealant are better for a shine. Wood stains that have a water sealer and UV protections are better for changing the color of the wood. To protect wood decks or other structures exposed to severe heat and sun exposure, use an acrylic stain with transparent iron oxide or opaque pigments

Pretty! Is the upper level deck a 'roof' for under? Or does water run through?
What color deck stain is this?
What type of materials are on the top of the deck?
The deck is not waterproofed to shed water beneath. We have done details for similar situations where we have had a screen porch or finished room below a deck or patio. We have used a membrane similar to a normal "flat" roof under a deck, but the final product would depend

How is the structure under the deck made up to allow water to escape and not drain into the living space below
roof is sloped to scuppers on the edge of the parapets and drains to downspouts. The liveroof system sits on top of this and freely drains. The decking is built on tapered PT sleepers that are cut to fit the slope of the roof below.

We love the pool deck but are worrying about slippage with small children?
yes it is a gunite pool. That is blue stone coping where it meets the wood deck.
leaves me to believe open air space, my question is more about drainage under the deck. Is there a French drain or catch basins to divert the water from collecting and causing algae growth or mosquito haven areas... Or even an increase of wood rot.

An extension of the kitchen and living room addition, the arching deck continues the lines of the kitchen and extends the living space into the back yard.
That deck was designed in response to a specific site condition and as an extension to the new addition. We don't typically sell plans because each condition is unique and is going to call for a unique solution. We would be happy to work with you to design a deck that fits your house
