So what can you expect when choosing The Deck Store for your next decking project?

Our multi-layered approach literally starts from the ground up, and encompasses four major categories:

Deck Foundation

Helical Piles

Every good thing begins with a good foundation, and your deck is no different. Strength and stability is an important thing to build upon, and that’s why we like to build our decks upon something called Helical Piles. Often known as Screw Piles, Helical Piles are quickly becoming the most efficient and cost effective way to provide your project with a safe and sturdy foundation.

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!

Deck Framing

Metal Framing

Once you have your post properly anchored and standing strong, it’s time for phase two: framing. Available in both metal and traditional pressure treated lumber, framing is the skeleton that supports you decking for the duration of its life. 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.

Low Maintenance Materials

After your foundation is set and your framing secure, it’s time for the main event of the building process: your decking of choice. This can take on many forms, from traditional pressure treated to synthetic materials (composite/pvc), but is always accompanied by one constant; experienced and skilled build teams.

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.

Pergolas, Privacy Screens, Shading Elements

Having a new deck is great, but what really turns you backyard space from renovation to staycation are the character pieces and accents that you choose. Things such as custom pergolas, privacy screens, shading options and custom metal artwork can go a long way in turning your outdoor space into a retreat; and we all want the kind of yard that will leave our neighbors and friends jealous and talking.

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.
