The specialists of our company will help to improve such a terrace with the help of modern design solutions. We will do our best to make the design of the project you like a reality. And you will enjoy the relaxation on the terrace, which you have long dreamed of.
Building a Balcony Deck
Before proceeding with the construction of a balcony deck, it is necessary to determine the type of flooring. Professional decking companies can help with this. Not only the appearance of the deck will depend on the choice of flooring, but also the safety, durability and convenience of the design.
To date, there are 3 main types of flooring for decks on the balcony, each of which has its own characteristics, advantages and disadvantages.
Composite is one of the most popular materials for finishing balcony decks (balcony terrace). It is made up of plastic, wood particles and other components which, when combined, form an excellent decking material. The composite is strong enough, resistant to environmental influences and durable. The installation of such flooring does not present any difficulties for builders, since the material is light and not as dense as wood. Both wooden and metal railings go well with composite decking.
Wood is the most common material used for decking surfaces on roof terraces and balconies. Our customers most often choose wood because of its natural structure and ability to retain heat. The tree does not overcool in winter and does not overheat in summer.
It is best to use high quality wood for balcony flooring Toronto to avoid splitting and cracking. South American exotic hardwoods have proven to be the best combination of looks and durability. They only need oiling once or twice a year. No need for painting or sanding. South American exotic hardwoods such as IPE and Cumaru are commonly used on roof terraces, condominium balconies and decks.
Plastic (PVS) decking
Plastic decking for the balcony terrace is made of PVC. It is a plastic board, in appearance it practically does not differ from a wooden flooring both in color and in texture. PVC is one of the most durable materials, it is resistant to high humidity, UV rays and practically does not require any maintenance.
Lighting decking for the balcony
Some of our customers choose surface lighting built into the floor of a roof terrace or balcony. Given these wishes, we prefer to install high-quality stainless steel LED lamps that can be walked on or even driven on. These fixtures are installed almost flush with the surface of the terrace. In addition, we install lighting on the side surfaces of the balcony terrace: on the steps, pillars and walls. All wiring is laid under the deck.
Requirements to build in Toronto
- Before ordering the installation of a balcony deck from a construction company, you need to familiarize yourself with the requirements and standards that are put forward in Ontario for this type of construction:
Any residential deck or balcony in Ontario over 1.80m above the ground must have a 42″ high railing.
- A building permit is needed for any deck adjacent to the house.
