You believe in the value of alternative decking and railing. So, why are you using wood framing? Choose Evolution steel deck framing, a smarter steel system designed by deck builders, for deck builders. The interlocking joist and ledger system lets you build sturdy, safe decks with less effort. Our powder-coated finish provides increased corrosion resistance and a more finished look.
STEEL THAT REMINDS YOU OF WOOD
If you know how to frame with wood, you can frame with steel, even on curves. Ledger, joist, beam, rim: Evolution components are easy to identify because they’re the same shape and function as wood. Rectangle joist profiles feel familiar and are available in 12’, 14‘, 16’, 18‘ and 20’ lengths, ready to cut to size for your project.
THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR FRAMING LONG-LIFE DECK BOARDS
Whether you choose composite, PVC, Ipe, tropical hardwoods, or any other type of deck boards, our steel framing system delivers the durability your deck investment deserves.
BUILDS FLAT, STAYS FLAT
Steel is uniform and straight, so pieces are simple to square and won’t twist, warp, crack or rot like wood. Flat, stable decks mean fewer callbacks and happier customers.
FRAME STRONGER DECKS WITH LESS EFFORT
Steel is strong but light, so lifting and placing joists is easy. Standard Evolution framing can support longer spans, reducing the number of footings or columns you have to place. The interlocking system limits the number of fasteners for rapid installation.
25-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
Why build a long-lasting deck on a wood frame with no warranty? With Evolution, you can be confident your framing will be as durable as the deck it supports.
