Some people say that the best part about living in Vancouver is the view. But what residents are really appreciating right now is the fact that summer is already on its way, which means that patio season is also approaching. There’s no better time to start thinking about enjoying the warm mountain view and the possibility of hosting parties and intimate get-togethers on your outside patio. When planning on a deck repair or home improvement, start by thinking about your view. If you’re lucky enough to have a view of the mountains and forest areas, then consider the ways to best take advantage of that visual asset.
There are many options for deck and railings in West Vancouver. Consider that residents already have a window on the natural beauty that the West Coast is famous for. So when thinking about installing a new deck, remember that it’s the deck itself that acts as your window on the world. So why would you want to obscure that view with solid railings? The benefit of topless glass rails is that they virtually disappear, create little to no shadow lines and allow for total viewing pleasure of the landscape that lies beyond.
If you’re considering your options for stair railings, you may have a lot of questions regarding the size and height requirements and options. As well, you may be concerned about the wind rating of the tempered glass in order to ensure that safety is being maintained both within the building code needs as well as for you and your guests. There are a variety of colour and design styles that you can choose from, so consider what best suits the décor of your home before coming in to look at samples. You may also wish to consider the wind and weather conditions of your particular neighbouhood. Knowing exactly what conditions your outside stairs are going to face will help us determine the best fit for your home.
The South American standard in top quality hardwood is IPE (ee-pay) wood. Renowned for its reliance to the elements and from termite attack, it’s a low-maintenance option that may only need oiling once a year. But beyond the quality and long-life you can expect from IPE hardwood, you’ll also enjoy the way in which the wood deck will seamlessly blend into a North Vancouver view. This wood is extremely rich but it can also completely withstand the Vancouver climate. It’s a particularly dense wood that can easily accommodate heavy traffic so therefore the wear and tear will greatly be reduced and you’ll be able to enjoy your deck for many summers to come.
A quality deck is a wise investment that enhances the value and beauty of your property. This is why you also need quality installers and builders to ensure that you’re getting the product that is perfect for you and your home.
