Deck Construction Projects in Toronto Start At The Deck Store

Whether you’re a Do-it-Yourself family or seeking the help of a professional deck contractor, deck construction is not only a personal choice, it’s a matter of personal safety too.

Construction Choice

Many homeowners choose to expand on their own creativity to design their dream deck, porch or patio and even install it themselves. For a seasoned handyman with plenty of extra time on his or her hands, this could prove to be a relaxing and rewarding way to spend their free hours throughout the summer. If space or budget is restricted, then a homeowner may be quite comfortable with tackling an outdoor living space. At the end of the day or summer, it will prove to be an excellent place to barbecue, relax, and enjoy.

For others, not so much. Most homeowners recognize that the larger, the more unique and the more complex the deck project becomes, the more they prefer the experience of a professional deck contractor. Where there is more flexibility with space and budget, together with a professional deck builder, you can achieve all your project dreams. Being able to accommodate larger groups with specific living areas in mind seems to be the top priority. One area for the barbecue or complete outdoor kitchen, an area for lounging and the outdoor dining area, which for many is the focal point. And each of these areas may be partially covered for all season weather conditions or partially partitioned for privacy.

Construction Safety

Most Do-It-Yourself Deck Construction is fairly basic and many of the proper techniques and permit requirements can be found online. Depending on where you will be building your deck project in Toronto or the surrounding area, there will be some variances in permit requirements, but regardless they are strictly enforced for your safety.

Many homeowners attempting their own do-it-yourself deck project are quite surprised by the arduous process of acquiring a permit for their deck, porch or patio. They are even more surprised by the hard labor of digging footings and heavy lifting of building materials all during varying degrees of heat and blazing sun. Too many people have been hurt by heavy equipment, power tools and an assortment of other mishaps during construction. And there is nothing worse than having to demolish and start over when just a few small corners were cut. Besides that, the building inspector is not amused.

A professional deck contractor makes it their priority to know all of the safety concerns regarding your home improvement project. So even if you’ve decided you want a multi-tiered deck with all the added features of enclosures, overhead structures, and privacy walls, built in a hot tub or water features or whatever else you can dream up, you know it will be built properly and safely for your family.

The Final Product

Whether you’ve decided to do your own design-build project or hire a professional deck builder with an in-house team of designers, homeowners love to start the process on their own. Between checking out all those beautiful dream decks in the magazines, infusing your own creative genius and admiring your neighbors’ masterpiece, when it comes to home improvement projects, homeowners are anxious to be involved from start to finish, either with or without a hammer in hand.

Chances are, many of those deck construction projects were both created and built by The Deck Store or the quality building materials were provided by them. The Deck Store has numerous locations throughout Toronto and the greater Toronto Area, and they are dealers for most of the renowned maintenance-free building materials for all your deck, porch or patio projects.

WHY THE DECK STORE?
The most important part of any deck project is finding the right builder to do the work. Our builders have the right set of skills, our designers share your vision, and we always can adjust project according your price range

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.

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.

Surfacing/Decking

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.

Deck Accents/Details

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.
