Dale’s Project

Deck rebuild and extension

Another rebuild project! Our clients reached out for help to transform their rotted and unsafe deck into something refreshing, safe, and practical. They wished to duplicate the footprint of their old deck, but have a portion lowered and the material replaced with composite, as switching to composite ensures a maintenance free and decades long-lasting product. After the initial meeting, we sent a quote, a drawing, and a plan that fully covered the scope of the project. We chose to do a free standing deck (not attached to the home), supported by 12″ x 4′ deep cement piles and pressure treated 6×6 posts. We finished the framing and surface with Timbertech Silver Maple and Brown Oak. Throughout our initial meetings, we find it important to outline some of the potential complications, so our clients are aware of everything that may need to be done. For this project, it was initially decided when lowering the deck, a portion of the stucco behind the old deck would be left appearing unfavourable. This client had a family member with exterior experience, so they looked after this part of the project himself. When we prepare an estimate on your project, we individually list every portion of the building process, which allows our client to see what each portion costs. On this project, we also outlined composite skirting within our estimate and our client decided he would go without it, so we simply removed that item from the estimate and sent back a revised quote. Please note – we did not build/add the lattice you see in these pictures. When we returned to take these photos, there was a piece of PVC lattice acting as a skirt on the upper portion of the deck, which was added by the client. Although we favoured the lattice, the project still turned out wonderfully!

The deck pergola and fence that YYC builders built was great. The project was delivered in good time, and the price was reasonable. Jared and his team were also very professional and friendly throughout the entire process. I’d happily work with them again and am actively recommending them to my neighbors and friends

Not fence and deck related, but Jared and the YYC Builders team have been taking care of our Xmas light install and take down for a number of years now. They’re always timely, their planning and communication is always transparent and forthright, and the work is perfectly done. Would definitely recommend.

Great service, I ordered outdoor Christmas lights. The crew arrived and completed the work in a timely manner and left the space clean. The lights were beautiful and as requested. Will definitely recommend YYC Builders.
