Shawn’s Project

Sunken deck to match cement height

This build was in a smaller backyard for an inner city infill home. Our clients originally had a small grass area in the yard that was a bit of a pain to maintain. Their goal was to go maintenance free for the entire backyard and add more space for entertaining. To achieve this build we had to dig down the entire area 10” to allow space for the deck to sit at the same level as the pre existing concrete pad and walkway. Digging down 10” here is necessary to ensure the deck framing isn’t sitting in dirt that would hold moisture against the framing and result in early rotting of the materials. Besides removing all the grass and dirt this build was relatively straightforward. A standard 12’x16’ composite deck finished with Timbertech’s Coconut Husk. There was a bit of a challenge for the team to follow the height of the existing cement as it was not level but the goal was to have the deck and the cement level with each other and we made it happen!

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.
