Composite Decking Contractor


As we are a leading composite decking contractor in Calgary we have had the opportunity to work with many types of composites on the market. This deck was built using the Timbertech product for the main deck and post casings for the upper deck. The Timbertech product is one of the more expensive composites on the market but in appearance and feel it gives you more of a wood look than some of the other materials available.

Fortress Fence Wood Deck

Decks, Fencing

This Fortress Fence and pressure treated deck project was completed in Cochrane AB. These types of fences are the most popular for residential fencing. There are build variations that you can do to give the fence a sturdier build and beefier look. Gates always have over head cross rails to support posts and look great.

Composite Deck with Benches


On this project we wanted this composite deck with benches to feel like a part of the house so we tried to match up the colours as closely as we could. The Trex Transcends product comes in gravel path grey that was a very close match to the recently added stucco. With the soffit and trims being brown the Vintage lantern colour was the right choice for the benches.  Read More

Pressure treated deck

Well I’m surprised we’ve gotten out of the gate as quickly as we have this year, but were not complaining by any stretch as we have our first pressure treated deck completed.

First job of the year started out with a DIY job that went very wrong right from the start. The father of this client decided he could tackle this pressure treated deck on his own but soon realized it was much more difficult than he thought.   Read More

Colour Them Hopeful: As deck makers increase the number of composite decking colours, options, and products they sell, dealers keep a wary eye on performance.

Spend time with decking manufacturers and you get the feeling they live in dog years. The big question for dealers today is whether those manufacturers’ products do the same. Read More

Deck Maintenance


Deck Maintenance

The best natural decking is comprised of cedar, hardwood or pressure-treated spruce. If you deck is made of any of these woods they will need to be sealed annually.

While cedar and pressure treated wood can be left to weather to a lovely green or grey, natural decks might not always age gracefully or uniformly. A deck that is regularly treated will look better and outlast an unfinished one.
