Terry Fangrad: Meet the Pro

Terry Fangrad

Terry Fangrad, founder of The Deck Store, is an experienced deck builder and business owner.

Under Terry’s leadership, The Deck Store has grown into Ontario’s largest independent deck design, supply and build company with four substantial showrooms.

How did you get your start?

I started my deck business in the mid 1980’s. My grandfather was a furniture maker and I always enjoyed carpentry but I wanted to work outside. Deck building was a great fit for me as I had a keen eye for design and I had a good understanding of proper construction practices.

I was building decks before they became popular and actually built the first composite deck in Canada. It is still standing today which is a testament to the longevity and durability of the non-wood decking materials.

What sets The Deck Store apart?

The Deck Store is unique in our industry in that we have the only substantial indoor showrooms in our market where customers can come at any time and in any weather and see the various products that we feature as well as talk to experienced staff members about them.

Our team is young, energetic, passionate and dedicated to what they do. Many of our designers and store personnel are female; we find they connect well with the customers and have an approach that appeals to them.

What do you like about your job?

I get a kick out of bringing a customer’s dream to reality and improving the quality of their life through my (and my team’s) designs and builds. The most rewarding part is helping our people achieve their goals and dreams as well as bringing great designs and workmanship to our customers.

What do you see as far as future trends or movements in the industry?

LED deck lighting, custom screens and adjustable shade structures are some of the popular trends in our market. Variegated colors in decking are also very popular in our area – making WOLF a very popular choice.

What advice do you have for homeowners?

I wish that homeowners would do their homework in regards to products. They need to spend more time getting objective information rather than believing the first person that tells them a certain product is right for them. I also encourage homeowners to check out the contractor or builder that they select to build their project. Do they have the experience with these types of materials? Check out a previous project that they built and get referrals.

What has your experience been with WOLF?

We built our first deck with WOLF Decking in 2011. It is becoming one of our most popular material choices.

The Cavatassi project that we built last year is our favorite WOLF project to date. It turned out even better than the homeowner imagined and it has transformed their backyard and their outdoor lifestyle. This deck has been featured in magazines and is popular on media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Houzz.

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.
