What are some of the benefits to going with Fiberon for composite decking material?

Hello, We as a company never have worked with the Equinox Pergolas so we wouldn't be able to give you much info on them. We would recommend contacting Equinox directly. Thanks, Keystone Custom Decks

How do the mechanical controls on the Equinox pergolas work?

The louvers are controlled via solar power using a remote control. Each zone of the pergola works independently, which allows full sun for the sunbathers in the family and full shade for others. Another advantage is the ability to create a natural draft by opening the louvers just slightly. A gentle breeze on a hot day can make all the difference.

What are benefits of the louvered pergola?

If you enjoy being outside all of the time, then an Equinox pergola is the way to go. When you’re outside, you’re at the mercy of the elements. The sun can be so intense that it becomes uncomfortable to enjoy, while a rain shower can send you running indoors or cancelling a well-planned party. With the touch of the remote, you have control over the sun, the shade and the rain, rather than the other way around.

Can you suggest some other upgrades for a deck with a covered structure?

Adding heaters and ceiling fans is becoming almost standard. In addition to making everyone more comfortable, it also helps extend the seasons you are able to enjoy outside. TVs and kitchens and fire features are also becoming commonplace. Creating an environment where everyone is together is the goal of an outdoor space. Whether it’s cooking or watching the game, no one wants to be stuck inside! You can count on complete protection while enjoying full ventilation.

What should customers understand before signing a deck contract?

Making sure all costs are included in the initial estimate. One of my biggest pet peeves that many contractors do is not include all the cost upfront. You need to know that everything is included before the building is started. That is why Just Decks listens carefully to what the customer wants and is priced accordingly.

In the decking business, is it important to for you to keep up with all the latest trends in outdoor living?

Yes! We can build simple or elaborate. If they can envision it, we can build it and if they can’t I will help them, according to their budget. Most people want to get as many months out of the deck that they possibly can, so we build a variety of fire pits, octagons, conversation areas, pool surrounds and outdoor kitchens. We also offer more railing options now with metal, lighting and glass, along with the composite.

What are some of the biggest changes you have seen in your more than 25 years of experience in the decking industry?

Years ago, wood decks were the most appealing choice for decks. That is short-lived when the wood starts to chip, peel, splinter, warp and fade. One of the most important decisions to make once you have decided on having your dream deck built is the ongoing maintenance costs of staining, water proofing and power washing. In the last decade, composite decking has been the decking of choice. It’s a combination of plastic and wood fiber, which is more resistant to the elements and although the majority of cost is up front with installation and material, you end up saving money long term.

What are some of the benefits to going with Fiberon for composite decking material?

I prefer installing Fiberon because it is both beautiful and reliable. Fiberon adds a protective polymer capping on all four sides of the decking. This creates a look that emulates real world wood while providing superior performance to match every budget. Fiberon stands behind their products without any of the hassle that you might get from other companies.
As the only Premier FiberPro installer in North Jersey, we have the exclusive ability to offer our customers a five-year labor warranty on specified material. That is something most other companies cannot offer.
