Waterfront Decks in Toronto with Curves and Pergolas
Features of these decks:
This enormous curved Deck in Toronto push the boundaries of what you thought was possible in a backyard deck. Roughly 2300 sq’ of pre-finished Western Red Cedar make up these expansive decks. Some parts are variable-tangent curves, some have brows and some are hard geometric transitions. Large steps, pergolas and privacy screens with lighting and sound system have all been built in. Tempered Glass Hand Rails offer an unencumbered view of the water. We even designed an addition to the home to extend the 3 season room.
Curved Decks- Done the right way!
Many builders claim to do curved decks, however, their methods are often found to be lacking within a few years. Most builders kerf cut large pieces of wood to make them bend as a rim. This offers no more strength than a 1/2″ board and they always rot prematurely. They then cover that with plywood or plastic. We use layers of solid western red cedar lumber laminated into a structural rim joist. We use marine epoxies for long-term durability. Our builders are well versed in laminations.
We are deck builders that produce finishing that often exceeds that inside the home. Call us perfectionists–our elite builders have a need to do things right.
Deck Design Experts
We are builders of decks that flow. There is no point in having a large deck where people are tripping over obstacles and your furniture doesn’t fit. Having an inspired deck design should always be the first step in building decks. The designer should first make sure it has space that works for the homeowner’s lifestyle. All deck designs should look good with the home–as an extension of the home, not something cool stuck to the back.
Glass Railings Approved by Engineers
Tempered glass rails help keep this deck design open to the water–since that is the front of the home! Our railing details are “Engineer Approved”, all across North America.
Large Staircases Add a Substantial Look
Large 17″ steps help create a grand entrance. Since it is a waterfront home, the view from the water is paramount. The waterside is always the “Front” of the home. All staircases should have lights installed for safety, but in this case, it also adds to the nighttime look.
Pergola fit for a king!
In this case, the pergola draws the eye from the east entrance to the hot tub 80′ away. The privacy screen behind uses heavy lattice to distract the view from the neighbors. From a distance, the privacy screen seems to be part of the pergola. Extended rafter overhangs add a very custom built look to the pergola.
