Transforming your backyard from mundane to marvelous doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a well-thought-out plan, quality materials and an expert vision to execute. But perhaps the most important aspect of any backyard renovation is not what work is being done, but who is actually doing it.
At The Deck Store, we are just as picky about who does your work as you are. That’s why we go through a painstaking process of selecting only the best deck-building craftsmen to join our team. These guys are experienced professionals, skilled in a variety of build techniques and know-how.
Every stage of the building process is treated with the utmost care and attention to detail, resulting in stunning projects that are constructed well above Ontario building code standards. Quality control is a must, and we employ a technique of constantly supervised job sites, overseen by a team of Construction Managers who are second to none.
We reviewed a number of options and companies and are glad we went with The Deck Store in Oshawa. The Deck Store manager, was amazing. He provided a design for the deck and we went with Timber Tech which turned out to be a great choice. His suggestions for lighting and railing were perfect.
The installation team of Greg and Matt were very professional and were perfectionists which we appreciated. They were prompt and cleaned up after themselves. Along the way we asked for changes and they were flexible and accommodating. You can't go wrong with this company for who they are and their workmanship. We are proud of our new deck and you will be too!
Our multi-layered approach literally starts from the ground up, and encompasses four major categories:
Helical Piles are essentially a giant metal screw, installed by a professional technician using proprietary hydraulic machinery. The depth of the screw is determined by the desired bearing capacity, with the ability to support up to 50,000 pounds per pile. These Helical Piles not only guarantee that your project is supported by a solid base, they are also cost effective and provide shorter project times due to the ease of installation. This method of creating a foundation also helps reduce environmental impact generally seen during most construction methods, (by reducing soil displacement), which results is less transportation for excess soil, allowing for easy removal when the foundation is no longer needed. It literally is reducing our carbon footprint one step at a time!
Our master craftsmen are experts in joist placement and support methods, and are one of the few teams of contractors in the industry that work with metal framing day in and day out.
Why use metal framing, you ask? There are a number of logical reasons really, but ultimately it comes down to four main features: they are stronger, straighter, safer and smarter than their wooden counterparts.
This level of consistency means that means that the dimensions of your deck are now exactly level from point to point, ensuring even walking surfaces and weight distribution throughout.
We know low-maintenance decking better than anyone…after all, it was The Deck Store who built the very first composite deck in Ontario! Whether your project requires rounded deck boards, sophisticated miter cuts, fancy bordering or detailed edging, our master deck craftsmen are up to the task. These talented men and women live, eat and breathe outdoor living and design; and it shows in both their attention to detail and unparalleled work ethic.
Even something as simple as landscape or deck lighting can bring that little touch of tranquility and ambiance home, especially when enjoying it from the comfort of your new, high-quality patio furniture. The design team at The Deck Store are as talented and creative as they come, and are experts at utilizing your existing space to its utmost potential.
