Build the Deck That's Right for you

Decks and fences add additional living space, beautify your yard and add value to your home. But before you go shopping for the materials to build your deck or fence, there are four things that need to be considered: price, aesthetic, lifestyle and maintenance.

Before you Start

Before starting any building project check with your municipal office for local building codes, regulations and zoning restrictions.

Pressure-Treated Wood

The majority of decks built in Canada are constructed from pressure-treated wood because it's typically the most affordable option. Unfortunately, pressure treating wood doesn't make it completely resistant to moisture, which means that you'll have to apply a water repellent to your deck on an annual basis in order to protect against moisture damage.

ProGuard Preserved Wood products are designed for outdoor construction. They contain the NatureWood preservative system, which uses copper as the main active ingredient. Copper, a naturally occurring mineral, is an effective and widely used fungicide. In NatureWood, it is coupled with a quaternary compound (or “quat”) for enhanced performance against copper-tolerant fungi and termites.


Decks made of pressure-treated wood can last up to 40 years. To maintain your deck, wash it annually with a detergent to remove dirt, moss, algae and mould. A pressure washer is also a fast and easy way to clean your deck.

Once your deck has completely dried, apply a clear sealant. This will help to prevent against splintering and discolouration caused by moisture.

Western Red Cedar

Cedar possesses an oil preservative that makes it naturally resistant to decay and insect damage. Its beautiful grain, texture and colour make it an easy choice for one of the most aesthetically pleasing deck and fence materials. It’s lighter than pressure-treated wood, which makes it easier to maneuver and work with, but typically more expensive as well.


To maintain your cedar deck, wash it annually with a mild detergent and water.

Never use a pressure washer on your cedar deck. Although cedar is durable, it's still a softwood and can be damaged by a pressure washer.

Composite Decking

Composite decking is made from a combination of natural wood fibres and durable resin. Designed to resemble real wood, composite decking and fencing requires no painting or staining and won’t splinter, crack, warp or rot.

Veranda composite decking features realistic wood-grain patterns and is available in a large selection of colours. Backed by a 25-year limited warranty, you can have peace of mind knowing your investment in a composite deck is protected season after season.


Periodic washing with soap and water is necessary to remove surface dirt and chalk that accumulate on the surface. This will also prevent the build-up of pollen and debris that can cause mold and mildew growth. Pressure washers should be used for wetting and rinsing only and not to “blast off” soiling agents; attempting to do so can drive the dirt deeper into the material. Test on an inconspicuous area before washing the entire deck.
