Deck Building

Today, deck builders have a variety of materials with which to work. However, wood remains a preferred medium for many homeowners. That’s why the seasoned professionals at Hawkeye Framing make it a point to source the best lumber and use the most rigorous safety measures in every project. Framing contractors in Utah who offer clients their services for exterior construction know that there are a number of factors to consider when sourcing materials. Below, we’ll examine what products are best to use in a deck construction project.

Residential Framing

While there are many projects that homeowners can complete themselves, major home remodeling projects and framing construction should be enacted with the assistance of professional home contractors. We at Hawkeye Framing offer homeowners more than 40 years of expertise as framing contractors in Utah, serving communities in both Salt Lake and Utah Counties. Read on for a more detailed description of our diverse services and the types of products we’ll use in your next house renovation.


Basement Finishing

When it comes to basement finishing in Utah, the task is never entirely as cut and dried as it may seem at first. While our basement contractors will assert that high-quality lumber with a minimum of knots or imperfects is an essential component to completing any framing construction project, it indeed isn’t the first step in the process. With many unfinished residential basements, all or part of the level is below ground. This makes waterproofing the first, integral step.

Commercial Construction

Commercial and industrial framing projects differ sharply from residential renovation in several ways. One of these is the variety of materials used to meet or exceed building safety codes. Below, the experts at Hawkeye Framing walk through the options and types of material generally used in commercial projects, touching upon specific differences between these and industrial framing endeavors

We take pride in providing a great work product to our customers. Please review the testimonials below.

"I was impressed with Jim from Hawkeye Framing from the beginning. He was proactive about contacting our structural engineer to make sure he understood what was needed for moving a load bearing wall BEFORE giving us our bid, ensuring the job was done correctly and his bid would be accurate. He has a lot of experience and understands code requirements, making him a great resource for your framing projects. He is kind, approachable, and takes the time ask his clients’ preferences to make sure he does the job how you want it. He is timely, efficient, and stands by the high-quality of his work. We really enjoyed working with him and HIGHLY recommend Hawkeye Framing."

"Jim is a great craftsman! He was referred to me by a neighbor and had him build out our porch including a longer stronger beam and roof structure he was prompt and very professional. We called him back the next year to frame up a storage shed and the results were great. Jim is personable, professional, efficient, and follows through with his commitments. The job site was always clean at the end of the day and being in the building trades myself, the qualities described above are increasingly harder to find these days. Great job Jim!"
