Small Deck with a Large View Oakland, CA This deck needed restoration and the old railing did not meet current code in height or baluster spacing. Levitch maintained the horizontal design of the original railing to respect the existing architectural style. We used a welded railing structure that also acts as a wall cap to protect the wall on which it rests from water infiltration. Cable rails and a painted wood cap complete the new railing. A Bison leveling system with Ipe wood deck tiles creates the walking surface over the waterproof deck below, allowing for a picture-perfect view. The layout of the deck tiles complements the adjacent walkway tile.
