TimberTech decking is a highly durable composite building material designed to emulate the look, texture, and colour of natural wood, but with none of the weaknesses. Unlike wood, this engineered material will not crack or warp, and comes with a 25 year warranty from the manufacturer. It repels water and stains, and resists insects, mold, fungus, and other ravages from nature that would wear it down quickly. One feature of an outdoor deck that customers have started asking about is a top – not a solid covering, but rather exposed beams that resemble joists in a ceiling. This adds style and elegance, while providing more shade on bright days.
In today’s challenging economy, the grand daddy of home improvement projects – a new kitchen, with appliances and all the shiny bells and whistles – may not offer the same cost-to-benefit ratio as it once did. And what about building up, by adding a second story addition with master suite? That may not be a good idea, either, because many consumers – especially empty-nesters, are downsizing and looking for smaller homes. Homeowners have begun looking at simpler improvements, and one of the most popular is a spacious and affordable outdoor deck. Toronto Decks and Fence Company has been at the forefront of the residential outdoor construction boom in Metropolitan Toronto, and we’ve built hundreds of projects using TimberTech decking as consumers look for long lasting alternatives to wood and other deck materials.
To learn more about a top for your TimberTech decking, call us today for a free consultation.
Until then, keep in mind the following:
- Plan and measure properly. The top of the deck can cover the entire surface area, or only a portion. Decide in advance how big the top should be, taking into consideration factors such as furniture placement, rays from the sun, and so forth.
- Select the right materials. TimberTech decking is an ideal choice because of low maintenance, an industry leading manufacturer’s warranty, and the fact it’s easy to work with.
- Finally, make sure you understand local building requirements. Every municipality has different ordinances for outdoor structures, so make sure you know what they are – and have received the correct building permits – before construction starts. The last thing you want is to build a deck and top for it that’s too close to your neighbor’s property line – then have to tear it down.
