Deck building has come a long way in recent years. Paul Lafrance has taken it to another level. "Decked Out'' follows Lafrance and his crew (which includes "Holmes on Homes'' alumna Kate Campbell) as they construct eye-popping, state-of-the-art custom decks, providing homeowners with more of a getaway space and not just a tired-looking platform to place a few chairs and a grill.

Decked Out - Deck (ship) - Netflix

A deck is a permanent covering over a compartment or a hull of a ship. On a boat or ship, the primary or upper deck is the horizontal structure that forms the “roof” of the hull, strengthening it and serving as the primary working surface. Vessels often have more than one level both within the hull and in the superstructure above the primary deck, similar to the floors of a multi-story building, that are also referred to as decks, as are certain compartments and decks built over specific areas of the superstructure. Decks for some purposes have specific names.

Decked Out - Methods in fiberglass - Netflix

The process for building a deck in fiberglass is the same as for building a hull: a female mould is built, a layer of gel coat is sprayed in, then layers of fiberglass in resin are built up to the required deck thickness (if the deck has a core, the outer skin layers of fiberglass and resin are laid, then the core material, and finally the inner skin layers.) The deck is removed from the mould and usually mechanically fastened to the hull. Fiberglass decks are quite slick with their mirror-smooth surfaces, so a non-skid texture is often moulded into their surface, or non-skid pads glued down in working areas.
