Deck Builders in Ottawa – A Transformation
Deck builders in Ottawa strive to design and build decks like this! This deck transformation was designed by GardenStructure.com last winter and installed over the summer. Check out the before and after images!
Deck Builders Ottawa ON – Transforming a very ordinary back deck!
Deck builders Ottawa– where do you find the best in the business? Doug, “our client,” said he found images online of some stunning decks and tracked them back to our website. He found plenty of deck designs that appealed to him in our Gallery. He wasn’t sure how much we would do and how much of the deck building he would try to tackle. The design was primary. See the design renderings here.
He asked for the ultimate deck design. Doug told us that he wanted to get the deck design perfect first, and then figure out how to do it second. His instructions to the designer were to design what we felt should be there. A couple of weeks later we were going over the designs–a few subtle changes, extending the deck slightly, removing the swim spa for now. We also designed a lower fireplace area with pergola, and a fence detail for phases 2 and 3.
Building the Decks
As all good deck builders in Ottawa should, we obtained permits from the city to build these decks. The footings and beams needed engineering since we were using helical footings. We beefed up the framing to add to the strength of the privacy screens. The privacy screens help carry the Arcadia Louvred Roofs, so building in strength to the deck frame was a must. Team Karlis from the Deck Store did a masterful job putting everything together. No job ever goes perfectly, and as usual, there are always snags along the way. On this project, we had electrical failures and wind damage before the project was complete, but we took care of it.
Features for Building the Ultimate Decks in Ottawa!
A great deck builder needs to be able to offer all the things that go into building the ultimate outdoor living area. This project features heavy framing on helical footings. PVC decking with automotive plastic for the shell with a 25-year fade and stain warranty. The decking is of alternating colors, with the borders and breakers in a darker shade. 8′ privacy screens flank the sides, and glass in aluminum guardrails throughout, even down the stairs. Lastly, Arcadia Roofs with ceiling fans installed cap off this incredible deck transformation. Arcadia Roofs utilize aircraft grade aluminum for strength. They also use a premium powder coat for a long-lasting finish. For a nighttime look, we added deck lights to the stairs and behind the glass rails!
To make it all happen, the home was clad in Aluminium siding which could be painted any shade or color we desired. We rendered the look, and in the background, the client moved gas lines, electrical service mast and cleared out the old deck. He had the siding patched after the changes were made and then had the home repainted the color we chose. Magical deck transformations are a lot of work, and Doug picked up the slack and saved a bundle in the process.
