This project is in Waverley, in the Halifax regional municipality.
This family home is located on the lake, has a large backyard, and heavily treed property. The existing deck was showing signs of rot, and decay. The homeowners wanted to hire a deck builder, that could design and construct a composite deck, and railing so they would not have to stain, or paint every few years.
The main access to their home was from the driveway, to a side door, there was also access from the living room to the back deck area. A balcony off the master bedroom, also needed to be rebuilt.
The balcony provided a private area, the side deck provided shelter from the sun and elements, and the back deck was to be used for grilling, and entertaining. The back deck also has great views of the lake, and aluminum balusters were used to enhance the view.
Several designs were presented, as well as several decking material options. Trex decking, and railing were selected for the Halifax decks. Vinyl decking was an option, but the home owners preferred a more natural look.
