Portico Porch in Oakville Ontario

A portico deck in Oakville Ontario with a built in membrane to keep guests dry at your front door.


Decks as an Entrance. Commonly known as a portico, the covered front entrance is a traditional feature of an upscale home.  This deck was designed to improve the facade of this grand home in Oakville Ontario. This portico deck was built upon an existing concrete porch supported by frost walls. It is made of pre-finished red cedar and has hardwood decking. (Tigerdeck). Built by Dan Maragno in Oakville Ontario. Designed by Lawrence Winterburn

A massive home on the Lakeshore in Oakville Ontario needs an equally detailed entrance as well. This Portico deck looks much like a pergola with a deck perched on top. Perfectly detailed as an elaborate entrance to a stately home. The area below it is waterproofed, so it is a dry area for guests awaiting entry.

The patio and the porch base were existing, and they approached us for a design. It is always a shock when you arrive at the building department to obtain permits and they were not supposed to have a porch there! Once we sorted that out the permit part was easy for this decked entrance.

Laminated structural knee braces stabilize the deck above the posts, and draw the eye to this magnificent deck.

Custom rails and tongue and groove cedar clad the ceiling space below the deck.

From this vantage, this deck in Oakville looks as if it grew out of the garden.
