Quality Richmond Construction Starts with Quality Materials
At The Deck Tech, we take pride in our work. And with over 20 years of experience as contractors in Richmond, we know that the most beautiful, long-lasting structures begin with the best possible materials. That’s why we use the highest quality products on each and every project, no matter how small. We’ve had great aesthetic and structural success with a variety of composite products, vinyl rails, exotic hardwoods, PVC screened porch systems, and much more.
With so many choices at your disposal, we understand that making a decision can sometimes be an overwhelming process. We’re always happy to sit down with you and review each option, so that you’re able to choose the material that fits your lifestyle as well as your budget.
ACQ Treated Wood Products
ACQ, which stands for Alkaline Copper Quaternary, is a copper-based, affordable, and efficient wood treatment system that protects against decay and/or insect damage. Each of our wood products are available in a variety of grades, and we’ll help you select the one that’s most appropriate for your project.
Ipe Exotic Wood Decking
A natural Brazilian hardwood, Ipe is quickly becoming a sought-after material for homeowners who value both durability and good looks. Ipe’s extreme density gives it an A1 fire rating — the same as concrete and steel – and its natural chemistry makes it resistant to insects. Once constructed with our hidden fastening system and sealed for maximum defense against the elements, few woods can match the beauty of Ipe. Visit www.ipe-wood.com to learn more.

Capped Composite – The Original, Improved
Artificial decking started with composite in the late ’80s. Made of recycled plastic and repurposed wood, it was a revolutionary idea, with some well-reported flaws. Fast-forward a couple of decades and the composite decking market has come light years – with new brands, new ideas, and new technology that meet homeowners’ demands for durable and attractive decking. Capped composite has the same wood and plastic interior as original composite, but is wrapped in a super tough shell cap. More than a protectant against mildew and rot, the cap allows boards to have wood-grain textures and a range of colors to match any style. Invest once, enjoy for decades. Yep, decades. Decks & Docks only carries capped composite decking brands that guarantee a minimum of 25 years without fading or staining.
Biggest plus: Cost-effective, proven durability
Capped PVC – Looks Great, Feels Great
Looks like wood, but cooler. As in, actually cooler. PVC decking has a similar
tough shell as capped composite, but because there is no wood content, it retains
far less heat than other decking options – a great choice for a pool deck or boat
dock. Texture and color options mimic natural wood varieties and stains: oak,
hickory, mahogany, cedar, redwood, and even ipe. Maintenance is a breeze –
periodic hosing off and mild cleaner will keep your deck or dock looking great for
Biggest plus: Lightweight, best for bare feet
