Elmvale Decks – Builders of decks and pergolas!
Welcome to Elmvale! My name is Lawrence Winterburn and I am the principal designer for the Elmvale Area and I have lived here for nearly 2 decades. Driving through town you have surely seen my work, scroll down to see a few! The difference between our builders and the others has to do with training, standards and creativity.
All our projects are overseen by a carpenter with 25 years experience, that’s me. When they are building decks every deck they build with me gets better as I teach them new techniques job after job.
Standards have to do with materials choices and how it all gets put together. Better details last longer, and the code is just a MINIMUM standard. We always exceed code requirements.
Creativity matters– a deck or fence design needs to blend with the home and neighbourhood, but bring it up a notch at the same time. Read on to see some more local projects.
This is a re-surface of a 10-year-old deck. We rebuilt the frame and added joist flashing, then added new decking and modern features like frameless rails and privacy screen. The client did the stain work. New life for an old deck!
This deck is a new build on helical footings between Wasaga Beach and Elmvale– Allenwood Beach. It is PVC decking– new pictures coming soon. This is a winter build so the deck has some mud on it. Ask us how we can change your old wood deck to composite utilizing your existing frame!
This is a PVC deck in the Midhurst area, just south of Elmvale. The homeowner is doing their own landscaping– we will have to return to take final shots.
This is a large deck with a curve at Bluewater Beach. Oversized cascading steps lead right down to the beach. Western red cedar lumber faded to a similar colour as the sand.
Another shot from Bluewater.
