A ZURI Deck I Did On The Water


This was a fun project. It was like being on vacation except with driven piles that were set by hellen keller and sand in my work boots. Burned out a lot of tools on this job due to the damn sand!
As far framing went we had to work with the pylons that were there as our footprint and they were all over the place.
The main deck in the rear was built a few years ago so we stripped the mahogany and doubled every other joist to deal with the large cantilever, sured up the beam with another ply, and added all stainless metal connections. The rest we tore down and built new.
We cut in storm hatches in the zuri that get removed every fall and put back in the spring to deal with flooding on the deck from the surf. Not pretty but necessary.
The stairs are a temporary solution as they get wiped out every year by storms.
Key link railing system is excellent. This Is the first time we used it and definitely not the last. Was one of the only manufacturers that would warranty the rails within 20 feet of the salt water.
Zuri also is an excellent product that I will continue to use as long as people are willing to pay for it haha. They also were great in sending out a zuri rep to go over the install with us even though we use it all the time.

This was a challenge between waves dumping on us and people throwing dog poop in our dumpster but we got it done

I now hate the beach.

Re: A ZURI Deck I Did On The Water


I'd be really interested in seeing pictures of that decking in a year or two after it's had beach sand ground into it. I know there is a big difference in the scratch resistance (and chemical resistance) of synthetics and it would be nice to know where this stuff fits into the mix.

As would I. I couldnt of warned the homeowners any more of this issue and they are well aware of the damage sand can cause and that its bound to happen $$$.
With that said this is seriously tough stuff but they didn't want an IPE deck they wanted what they got.
