There’s nothing really particularly wrong with your yard per say; the deck is sturdy and functional, you have enough space to entertain and it performs well enough for what it is. But there is certainly nothing about it that makes you want to sprint outside every morning, cup of coffee in hand, and proclaim to the world what an amazing deck you have…is there? You are stuck in the land of the adequate and normal and are faced with a dilemma. You can choose to continually spend, year after year, on vacations to places warm, tropical and well…better than your yard. OR, you could invest that same money into transforming your existing space into something that makes you want to spend all your free time “staycationing”.
Before you build your new retreat, you’re going to need to visualize it. And what better way to see your imagination come to life than in 3D! We employ a trained and experienced 3D graphic artist in-house, and trust us when we tell you…he’s good. Working with your assigned deck designer, our artist can take the conceptual representation of your design and flesh it out into a three dimensional wonderland. This is especially handy when viewing things such as colors, depth and details. We can even place things like furniture, railings and deck lighting into your rendering, so you can get a full feel of what your project will look like upon completion.
If you want to be able to utilize your outdoor space as a retreat, than it had better function as one. Each member of our design team at The Deck Store are experts in developing concepts that provide you with maximum functionality, while also creating as much livable space as your yard allows. We identify the ideal structure and materials for your project, and work with them to present you with conceptual designs for each area of your new space. Do you want to keep your dining area separate from your entertainment area? Would you like a place to relax and feel cozy when you’re alone, but also want the option of an open-concept space for functions and get-togethers? Versatile living arrangements are key to the modern homeowner, and your designer will work with you to create a layout that not only works with your space, but also with your lifestyle.
What’s the point of crafting your own retreat if you can’t have a little privacy? Your Backyard Retreat package offers you several options to gain a little piece and quiet, ranging from the very subtle to project centerpieces. We offer numerous materials and designs for privacy screens and pergolas, as well as a seemingly endless supply of outdoors curtains and panels. Or maybe what you’re really trying to get away from is that unrelenting summer sun? Well shade and comfort can be on their way with our great selection of adjustable patios covers and awnings, with several manual and automatic options to choose from. After all, what could be better than grabbing a glass of your favorite wine and enjoying a nice, summer night shut off from the rest of the world?
At The Deck Store, we recognize that your backyard is not just about having a great deck, but also about setting a tone and creating an environment. We want you to be able to have that perfect line of sight to see the morning sunrise you love, to be given the opportunity to mold your deck and yard space together as one universal theme, and to provide your space the same life and vibrancy during the day as with dusk and after dark hours. The members of our design team are experts at utilizing your yards natural surroundings, and working with them to give you an overall ambiance that is ideal, and often breathtaking. With the Backyard Retreat package, you have the option to add things such as step lighting, rail cap lights, underdeck lighting, and landscaping lighting, all placed in ideal and strategic places to maximize the theme of your yard. Because The Deck Store doesn’t just builds decks…we create atmospheres.
What’s the best part about going to a retreat? Why the ability to relax and not have to do anything of course! And it is precisely that theme that we chose to use as the foundation of our Backyard Retreat package. Everything about it is low-maintenance yard care at its finest, from the decking itself to railings, lighting and shading. We work with some of the best manufacturers in the industry, with quality low-maintenance composite products available from TimberTech, Wolf, Trex, Fiberon, Azek and many others. What is the low-maintenance advantage? It means never having to stain or paint your decking, or having to worry about staining or scratching. It means not having to worry about chipping or splinters, or having to concern yourself with mold or mildew. But above all else, it means beauty and convenience. What more could you ask for?
Perhaps the best attribute of the Backyard Retreat package is the ability to fully customize your design to suite you. Many of our manufactures offer an incredible amount of customization and detail options that really add a great finishing touch to your project. You have the option of choosing materials such as color-match screws, composite railings and skirting, manufacturer-specific lighting, hidden deck clips and more. If you have already established a comfort level with one of these brands, you can essentially do almost every aspect of your project through a trusted source. And once you’ve completed the decking phase of your project, you might also get the urge to add things such as spas, hot-tubs, and water features,all things that The Deck Store can help to work into your budget. You’ve already invested in the foundation of a new outdoor living space…why not continue to add those accent pieces that will really make your neighbors jealous?
A&W from Mississauga at Homestars
From the moment we met Terry we were confident we chose the right company.
After soliciting 3 quotes, we chose the Deck Store because we were impressed with their creativity and professionalism. It is true they are more expensive, but believe you get what you pay for, and for our project, it was important to chose the Company we felt would support us down the road should something go wrong.
Max from Oakville at Homestars
They were clean, on time, and courteous. I would recommend them to family and friends.
I came upon The Deck Store at a recent Homeshow because we were in the market for a new deck. They provided a quote for the service and we compared it with other companies and liked their design and price point the best.
Ethan Goldberg from Oakville at Homestars
We were thoroughly impressed with their professionalism and attention to detail.
Any minor issues were corrected quickly and without fuss. The design that Stan and Terry came up with works great in our backyard and we couldn't be happier with our new deck.
