TYPES OF DECKS WE CAN BUILD
There are a variety of decks that can withstand our harsh winter climates as well as be suitable for the warm summer days you get to enjoy your deck on! Depending on permitting requirements and/or your outdoor space’s size, we will customize your structure to be the best version of your vision while following all the guidelines and restrictions put in place by your municipality.
Step 1: You will need to choose between a Wood deck, Vinyl Deck or Composite deck
Step 2: Decide what design of decking you want our team to build. Here are the variations you can choose from:
Similar to a traditional wraparound porch, this type of deck often “wraps around” the house, either on two sides or the entire house. There isn’t much that beats this type of layout as you can usual get either sun or share, have multiple seating areas and exits from the home.
Because of their size and shape, wraparound decks require just the right placement. This means a little bit of prep work to ensure the area, property lines and access into the home is well suited for a wraparound deck. You’ll want to pay attention to things like terrain, runoff and overgrowth.
Attached decks are the most common in the Calgary area, especially if your home is 10+ years of age. This type does not fuse deck beams into the side of the house but attaches via a ledger board. If the house includes a solid ban board within its construction, we simply bolt a ledger board to it and then the deck to that.
This type of deck is usually attached to properties’ backs but is common in L-shaped and U-shaped houses.
A detached deck is just that, detached from any structure, self-supporting and therefore freestanding. It can resemble an island for a beautiful dining area, be a surrounding for a pool or hot tub or be a foundation for a gazebo.
These structures are usually a low ground level deck with many options for customization. In addition, they can be the perfect solution in areas with bumpy and rocky terrain. These detachable decks, complemented with landscaping flowers, pergolas or a water features can make any backyard space its own home away from home.
Also known as two-story decks, these structures are perfect for those with large properties, sloping backyards or families wanting to create multiple entertainment areas.
These decks have different levels connected by steps or paths and can maximize the space you have on your property and add visual appeal!
Rooftop or Over Garage Deck
Do you have a flat roof on top of your garage? If so, having this type of deck is a great way to add outdoor living space to an otherwise useless area.
These decks are ideal for urban dwellers however you will need to check your local zoning to see if rooftop decks are permitted. This type of deck offers the best views, more privacy, and are cooler however they do require a lot of work with permitting, structural engineers and architects.

Do You Need Some Deck Design Ideas?
Do you want your deck to be unique and catch all eyes? Here are some design ideas you can consider:
Choose Modern Railing
If your deck’s style is traditional or old-fashioned, you can add a unique and eye-catching touch with modern railings. Some have black balusters that combine perfectly with wood railings or you can go all glass and enjoy those backyard views.
Add a Privacy Fence
If you enjoy your privacy while outdoors relaxing, have a hot tub on your deck or even want some shade or wind protection, you can add a privacy fence by converting the railing into a screen that blocks all of the above.
Build a Pergola
Pergolas are a statement piece that bring an undeniable beauty and elegance to your yard. It’s also a great option if you need a space to relieve yourself from the sun but want the summer air and comfortable hangout spot.
