Add A Deck To Your Ottawa Home
Decks are a notable addition to the home with the intention of expanding the living space. The backyard provides an excellent space to sit back, relax and enjoy a cold drink. Your deck can be made into an unforgettable getaway with built-in planters, outdoor furniture, an attached pergola or a BBQ station.
The deck is more than a place to sit for a family – it’s where unforgettable memories are made. It is also one of the best home improvements a homeowner can make when they want bang for their buck. You will remember your parents sitting on the porch watching the children play, cooking a meal on the grill, or sipping a favourite beverage. By designing your deck, you have the opportunity to make it whatever size, shape, and wood type you want.
Your options may be a place to entertain friends for a barbecue or game night, and a place for activities for the whole family. We can design decks that serve both purposes. A custom deck could be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. Customizing your deck isn’t just in the size and shape but also the material you choose. Local hard wood is recommended for something that is affordable, but will require occasional re-staining. Other customer choose to go with a composite material that is weather resistant, UV resistant but can increase the projects budget.
Decking Options and Maintenance
Deck designs have evolved over time. The decks should be long standing structures used to expand your outdoor living space. The design of a beautiful dream deck is no longer limited to the single-level oblong shape. Designs incorporate multiple levels made of elegant lines, arcs and curves.
Decks make a house look more attractive and can also provide a wider living space and add to square footage of living space. They are a great addition to any home. A deck designed will lighten the mood at the home, and provides access to expansive outdoor views and fresh air. The deck will provide an ideal spot for a good book, cold refreshments, and even for special evening occasions.
Numerous designs are available, and depending on materials, and the complexity of installation, may be more expensive. The designs can include contemporary and the vintage styles, with everything in between. Putting in a few decorations will result in an overall more appealing look.
We at A&Z Interlock Design Build think that decks are a great addition to Ottawa homes. Though the winters are long and appear to be never ending, we take advantage of the long days and hot summer season. You and your family can enjoy a day out, and then come back home to prepare a meal on the grill. Once you’ve installed a deck, you’ll never look back.

The available deck materials are more modern and provide longevity and high quality. Cedar is the best material since it provides natural quality and beauty. However, pressure-treated timber is the very robust, weather resistant, cheap and very effective material for building decks.
Composite materials are also available to achieve elaborate designs and high-end finishes. One such material is PVC, which is low maintenance and provides more than 20 years of service without the need for major repairs, staining, or total replacement. Redwood is yet another expensive decking option that is very light, sturdy, and low on maintenance. The darker-coloured Redwood is the best for decking because it is naturally resistant to rotting. Brazilian Ipe wood is another type of wood that is elegant-looking, extremely strong, and naturally rot-resistant. However, it requires annual maintenance to preserve its rich appearance, and is very expensive.
The addition of outdoor furniture to your new deck will make it ready for use. A&Z Interlock Design Build has an extensive range of materials, and options available. We can assist in the selection of gorgeous outdoor lighting, and powerful heating units that will make the deck useable even on cool October nights.
