Pool Deck Builder

After a long and cold winter, nothing beats time in and around the pool with friends and family. Ensuring that the surface around the pool is compatible with your lifestyle, going with composite or PVC decking from top US brands such as Trex, Azek and Fiberon is never the wrong option.

At Delta Decks, we are a team of professionals who have over 15 years of experience building beautiful decks around indoor and outdoor pools across the GTA.

  • Unmatched Experience in Toronto Deck Building Industry
  • Specializating in Low Maintenance Decking and Ipe Wood Decks


While the conventional thought is to surround the pool with stone, in those hot summer months, the stone may heat up to levels unsuitable for walking, lounging and tanning, especially when you have kids or pets in the house. When it comes to the comfort and safety of your family and friends, pool areas covered with maintenance free decking will provide a long lasting, slip and heat resistant outdoor experience.

The Delta Decks recommended choice for areas exposed to high levels of moisture such as pools is PVC decking. PVC, or polyvinyl chloride (a form of plastic) makes up the entirety of the boards – the cap and the core, containing no organic materials like wood flour that may mold due to extended exposure to moisture. PVC decking is the finest choice for your poolside deck project that helps enhance the pool, decrease slippage, and boost comfort. PVC decking is suitable for pool projects that are either above ground or on the ground level. With these decking boards, the frame of the deck can be made of wood as it is not exposed to as much moisture as the deck boards themselves. Wooden framing made of chemically pressure treated lumber is a reliable, affordable and available option that will suit any poolside project. Pool decks are also installed with either helical or concrete piles.

Maybe you want natural wood around your pool?

Another option aside from PVC decking if you want to stick with natural wood is Ipe hardwood decking. Ipe is a durable hardwood originating in South America that is produced from a tree known as Brazilian Walnut. Ipe is extremely dense and less susceptible than other woods to burning, with a fire rating that is the same as steel and concrete. This wood is also highly resistant to mold, mildew, termites, insects and extreme weather conditions which makes it perfect for a surface around the pool. Ipe can last between 40 and 75 years if you preserve it in optimal conditions. For pools, you can oil the Ipe with special oils annually to help maintain the wood’s natural, dark brown color. However, if you decide not to oil the Ipe, the wood will turn silver over a year due to exposure to UV radiation.

Cumaru is another great option for hardwood that is harvested from South America. It is very similar to Ipe, in fact, many homeowners prefer it to Ipe wood due to affordability while providing similar qualities. Cumaru decking has rich brown tones, slightly more red than Ipe. Cumaru has a natural layer of luster that feels smooth under the feet. This wood is also highly resistant to decay, weather conditions, mildew, mold, and insects.

Why do we not recommend pressure treated and cedar decking?

While going with a more affordable wood such as pressure treated or cedar may be tempting due to its popularity and availability, we generally do not recommend completing a poolside project with softwoods. Not only are these woods more susceptible to rot and mold, but they can easily splinter and cause harm to anyone walking on the deck. Therefore, investing in a long lasting, maintenance free and high quality material such as PVC or Ipe is the better choice for pool projects.

Composite materials for the pool choose very carefully

Composite materials are all around a fantastic choice for decking around the house – durable, beautiful and long lasting. However, for areas around the pool, composite decking is not as suitable as PVC due to heat resistance. Composite boards are susceptible to heating up more than PVC or Ipe, and therefore can make walking on the boards quite uncomfortable in the hot summer months. If your budget favours composite materials over PVC, the best option is to pick a light colour that will heat up less than dark brown and dark grey boards.

Delta Decks did a beautiful job on our backyard deck and patio. Our old deck was in dire need of a rebuild and refresh. Elgi was great in getting the project started and Dimitri and his team were amazing to work with throughout the project. They were extremely customer focused and detail oriented, even suggesting improvements that we had not considered. I would highly recommend this company.

Delta Decks replaced my very worn old wood deck with a mineral based/pvc ‘Deckorators’ product, color ‘Costa’. Finding a taupe color was a challenge but this came close to the rest of the wood decks I still have and I did not like the grays of most other products. They did an excellent job.

I am very satisfied with the improvements that Delta Decks made to my 12 year old deck. From my first contact with Elgi, the project manager ,to the final clean up of the jobsite I could not ask for better treatment. All my pre job questions were thoroughly answered and the advice given improved the final look of my deck. The 3 man job crew was terrific. Each of them was very professional and very conscientious. They made me feel that they wanted me to be very satisfied with their work. They answered any questions I had and they did a very good job of cleaning up before they left. A job well done.

This review has been a long time coming. We had Elgi and team come in on September 2021 and after some talks about designs and materials we ended up going with a Fiberon deck. His crew was polite, neat and worked very quickly. The deck looks beautiful and the lighting on the stairs really compliments the design. Thanks so much Elgi & team, It was a pleasure working with you!

Recently had a very pleasant interaction with the team at Delta Decks. I am planning to build a pool deck and Alex is handling the entire process with a great attention to detail. I have very specific needs for installers, and Alex was easy to work with, professional and delivered things on time. I am confident the project will be done impeccably and on an agreed price.

Elgi and his team were wonderful! Elgi is very knowledgeable and he didn't try to upsell us. He understood our needs, gave us good advice and we didn't feel pressured. He was very responsive and accommodating. The craftsmanship on the deck is excellent and we can't be more happy with how it turned out. Covid had caused some delays but the project was still completed within a reasonable time. Overall we were very happy using Delta Decks.

We are very happy with our new deck completed by Delta decks. From the first consultation with Elgi, our project manager we were very impressed with the professionalism and advice we received for the initial design of the deck. We then went to their spectacular showroom where we were able to pick from the several different options of colors and materials. The deck was completed with high attention to detail, and excellent workmanship. The two carpenters, Alex and Alex completed the job on time and on budget with no issues whatsoever. Several design changes were suggested along the way, and constant contact by Elgi ensured the final project was better than what we could have ever imagined. Their price was also very reasonable, after consulting with several deck builders we're so glad we went with Delta decks and highly recommend them!
